March 2013 Dividends


March was a fairly slow month in terms of activity for my portfolio. 

I bought 20 shares of Kinder Morgan ($636) in my RRSP account and sold XDV exchange traded fund to purchase shares in Dundee International Reit in my Tax Free Savings Account.

The market is very expensive and I’m sitting on a good capital gains. However, I’m a bit reluctant to make new purchases when equities appear to be shooting up through the roof. I’m sitting on cash at the moment.

I earned $877 in dividends in March.


Going-Forward yearly dividend income:

If I were to stop buying stocks today, the income I would receive on a yearly basis is $11,201.55 (or $933.46 per month).

Financial Independence Fund:

The total value of my Financial Independence Fund at the end of February is $232,919It was at $229,910 last month.

February dividends



February dividends

February has come and gone. It was a relatively quiet month. I purchased Coca Cola and Philip Morris since they were relatively inexpensive and added a bit to a preferred shares ETF. In all I invested just under $4,000 for February. I also earned $726 in dividends last month alone. Not bad for my slowest month.

A few stock splits also occurred in February. TD bank; 22 shares turned into 44 shares; and, National Bank, 15 shares turned into 30 shares.

I’m looking at making the following purchases next month: Rogers Communication, Dundee International Reit and possibly Fortis.
