March 2016 Dividends


I received $1333.48 in dividends in March. It just keep on rolling.

Annual dividend income is now $16,353 or about $1362 per month. this $1362 is the total amount in all of my accounts. I'm not going to be using my TFSA or RRSP for many decades from now. 
 

Financial Independence Fund:

The total value of my Financial Independence Fund at the end of December was: $393,509

This is a month-to-month increase from $393,509 compared to last month at $380,428

I am getting mighty close to the $400K mark. I didn't expect my portfolio to jump up so quickly considering where the markets were in early January. As such, I'm sitting on cash waiting for the markets to slow down. Stocks are overpriced and I'm not in the mood for buying.

I did pick up a couple of shares of WSP Global and Shaw in March. Other than that, I don't see many other compelling purchases coming up. Perhaps initiating a small position in CP or adding to my XPF etf. Perhaps adding a bit to Royal Bank.

Purchases made in March:

The total amount of new purchases made this past month: $2770


Regular taxable account: $2770

         Shaw Communications (55 shares @ $23.41 per share = $1293)
         WSP Global (40 shares @ $36.80 per share = $1477)

February 2016 Dividends



I received $1175.39 in dividends in February. About $100 more than the same month a quarter back, progress is gradual. This is despite Kinder Morgan slashing its dividend.

February was very slow with purchases. I added to my position in Fortis and took advantage of market downturn. I didn’t have much cash to work with in February.
       
In 2016 I have received a total of $ in dividends in my registered and non-registered accounts.

We’re off to a good year and I would be surprise to end 2016 near the half million mark. The next step is to hit $400K and I’m getting close.

Going-Forward yearly dividend income:

If I were to stop buying stocks today, the income I would receive on a yearly basis is: $16,180 (or $1348.40 per month).

Financial Independence Fund:

The total value of my Financial Independence Fund at the end of February was: $380,428

This is a month-to-month decrease from $380.428 compared to last month to $365,390.

Stock market has made a comeback. I have lots of cash I’d like to deploy in March and hoping markets will slump again to take advantage of cheaper purchases.


Purchases made in February:

The total amount of new purchases made this past month: $1317

Regular taxable account:

Fortis (35 shares @ $37.47 = $1317)
