JUNE 2016 DIVIDENDS


June 2016 Dividends

I received $1416.90 in dividends in June. This month was a respectable one.

It looks at though Canadian Natural Resources announced a rearrangement of Prairiesky Royalty which CNQ owned and under which I received cash of $19.94. This is a one-off event.

This past month I added over $5,000 to Canadian Natural Railway and happy about purchasing shares under $75/share. CNR is a position I want to continue adding to. I also added to Brookfield renewable.

Financial Independence Fund:

The total value of my Financial Independence Fund at the end of June was: $423,812

This is a month-to-month increase from $423,812 compared to last month at $411,676. The portfolio value continues to increase month to month. I am still sitting on cash and the BREXIT effect on the markets didn't last long enough for me to make significant purchases.

Annual dividend income is now $16,855 or about $1404 per month. I received $1416 this past month which is just in line with my new monthly average. I should be able to get to $18K-$19K by the end of the year hopefully.

Purchases made in June:

The total amount of new purchases made this past month: $7530

Regular taxable account: $7530

         Canadian National Railway (40 shares @ $74.88 = $3000)
         Brookfield Renewable Resources (60 shares @ $38.14 = $2294)
Canadian National Railway (30 shares @ $74.38 = $2236)

MAY 2016 Dividends


I received $1074.77 in dividends in February. This is actually a dividend drop from the previous quarter due to some dividend stocks cutting their dividends, ouch! My dividends are supposed to grow... That's the risk of investing in oil and commodities. 

Nonetheless, I am sticking on track and trying to choose more closely solid blue chip stocks that have a low likelihood of reducing dividends going forward.Wish me luck.

As for new purchases this month. One was in my TFSA and it was made entirely from dividends. I purchased 21 shares of Boardwalk entirely from 4-5 months of dividends. That was fun.

I added to Wells Fargo in my RRSP.

I also added to CN Rail, Power Corp and Power Financial in my regular account.


Going-Forward yearly dividend income:

If I were to stop buying stocks today, the income I would receive on a yearly basis is: $16,805 (or $1400.42 per month).

Financial Independence Fund:

The total value of my Financial Independence Fund at the end of February was: $411,676

This is a month-to-month decrease from $411,676 compared to last month to $395,216.
My new purchases contributed to that increase and the other increase is attributed to the market hitting new highs.


Purchases made in MAY:

The total amount of new purchases made this past month: $7306

Regular taxable account:

Canadian National Railway          (17 shares @ $76.38 = $1303)
Power Corp                                     (35 shares @ $28.84 = $1014)
Power Financial                           (32 shares @ $31.18 = $1003)
