April 2019 Dividend Income

April Income Post Pic

Hello everyone and welcome to dividend income post where I will share with you what I received in April. I hope you all had a fantastic month. I feel like I say this a lot but April was another record month for me in terms of income. I made one purchase in the month and that helped my income as that stock paid a special distribution. On the buying front I have been pretty quiet so far this year, I’m trying to build up some cash. What are you guys doing are you keeping cash on hand or finding some good buys?

Well let’s get to the numbers shall we. I received $760.47 for the month of April, this is the first time that I crossed into the seven hundred dollar mark. I received 22 paychecks spread over three accounts and the breakdown is as follows:

  • RRSP – $420.14
  • TFSA – $338.31
  • LIRA – $2.22

The money came in two currencies as I do own US stocks. However to keep things simple I use one currency (Canadian) for these posts. The currency breakdown for April is:

  • USD – $100.44
  • CDN – $600.23

Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP)

2018 2019
BCE $101.93 $110.95
TransCanada $70.38 $109.50
Telus $50.50 $56.68
Altria Group $48.80
Algonquin Power & Utilities $45.08 $41.02
Inter Pipeline $36.85
Realty Income Corp $12.92 $10.62
Alimentation Couche-Tard $3.78 $5.25
North West Company $0.32 $0.33
Leon’s Furntiture $0.12 $0.14
BMO US Dividend ETF $31.74
Pizza Pizza Royalty Corp $16.90
Total $333.67 $420.14

The increase with this account is mostly due to new investments that were made last year. Although dividend increases from BCE, TransCanada and Telus helped nicely as well.

Tax Free Savings Account (TFSA)

2018 2019
European Residential REIT $155.00
Inter Pipeline $32.48 $34.49
Keg Royalties Income Fund $15.70 $28.38
Plaza REIT $23.49 $24.61
Bank of Nova Scotia $23.49
BMO International Dividend ETF $22.23
Chorus Aviation $17.40 $18.16
Boston Pizza Royalties $12.31 $12.31
Canadian Apartment Properties REIT $8.85 $9.55
Artis REIT $14.13 $7.43
Andrew Peller Ltd $2.31
Corus Entertainment $17.86
ZCL Composites Inc $30.65
Total $172.87 $338.31

Huge increase here and that is thanks to European Residential REIT that is the stock I bought at the beginning of April. I made the purchase just before the ex dividend date so I could receive the special distribution.

Locked In Retirement Account (LIRA)

2018 2019
Diversified Royalty Corp $2.22
Enbridge Income Fund $26.55
Total $26.55 $2.22

Not a lot happening with this account it currently only has two stocks and one pays monthly.

2016 To 2019 Dividends

Dividend Goal For 2019

For 2019 I have set a goal of wanting to receive $8,000 in dividends. It is an ambitious goal which I will do my best to achieve. Even though I am slightly behind in where I need to be I am extremely happy about my results so far this year. At the end of April my dividends have increased $734.96 this year compared to last year.

Stock Buys

I purchased one stock in April and that was European Residential REIT. I bought 310 shares.

Dividend Increases

Last month I mentioned that I only received one increase well it turns out that I missed an increase from Realty Income Corp so I really had two in March. For April I received one increase.

  • Johnson & Johnson increased their dividend to $3.80 per share up from $3.60

 

Well folks that is a wrap for my April income post. How did you do in April? Thank you for reading I appreciate it.

First Quarter Goals Review of 2019

Review. Text on the string. Conceptual 3d image

 

Hello everyone, I hope you are all doing great today. Today I am going to review my goals for 2019 and share with you my progress through the first quarter of 2019. I think these reviews are important as it allows us to see our progress, if we are struggling in a certain area maybe we can find ways to overcome those struggles. This year I created goals in three categories savings, investing & health. At this time in my life I believe these are the most important categories for me.

Let’s get to it shall we!

Savings

Have $15,000 in a high interest savings account by the end of the year.

I am going to amend this goal slightly, I’m still going to try for $15,000 in savings by the end of the year but instead of one account it will be held in two. In early April I opened an account with EQ Bank an online bank in Canada, they are currently offering an interest rate of 2.3% the highest that I could find in Canada. At the end of March my savings reached $5,000 so I am a third of the way there.

Become Debt Free

I came into 2019 owing $10,054. I owed my parents $5,000 from a loan they gave me last year and I had $5,054 left on my car loan. At the end of March my debt now stands at $7,771.34 which means I’ve paid off $2,282.66. The interest rate on my car loan is just 0.74% so I haven’t made any extra payments on it. I’ve been setting some money aside in a car fund so the current plan is to see what my balance is at the end of the year and then pay off the car.

Stop Having A One Tracked Mind

In the past I had a tendency to have a one tracked mind for example if I wanted to pay off a loan I would focus all of my money towards that until it was completely paid off by doing this I was completely ignoring my savings and investing. I don’t believe this approach is healthy for my finances and I wanted to change that.

So far through the first three months things have worked out well, on the weeks where I receive my main pay cheques (I get paid every week) I make sure some of the money goes to savings, investing and debt.

Get A Travel Rewards Credit Card

At the beginning of the year I thought it would be good to get a travel rewards credit card because at some point in the future I would probably want to travel, but now I’m not so sure. I say this because in February I signed up for the PC Financial Mastercard it’s not a travel rewards card but you do earn points that you can redeem for groceries and this seemed like the better option for me at this time.

Health

Lose 25 Pounds

Well so far I haven’t lost any weight which isn’t bad news, on the other hand I haven’t gained any either which is really good news. My plan is to continue to watch what I eat and try to stay active.

Walk At Least 70,000 Steps Per Week

With this goal I kind of underestimated how many steps I do per week. Why do I say this? I say it because I am averaging 145,000 steps per week. A shockingly high number, thanks to waking on a treadmill for an hour a day and working in a school I get plenty of steps in per day. I think it’s safe to say this goal is going to be achieved.

Investing

Receive $8,000 In Dividends

So far I have received $1,772.91 I am slightly off my goal so far as I would need $2,000 every quarter in order to reach my goal. I am however still very happy with what I have received so far as it is an increase of over $500 from what I received in 2018 in the first quarter.

Invest $15,000 In My TFSA

As of April 1st I had invested only $1,739.28 into this account. I continue to make regular contributions but I may start making larger contributions later in the year if I can reach my savings goals.

Diversify Stock Holdings 

So far this year I have bought two stocks to help in this area. Going into 2019 I was and still am weak in the Industrials and Health sectors. In order to correct this I bought shares of Lockheed Martin and AbbVie.

Well folk that is a wrap on my first quarter review of my goals. Did you set any goals for 2019 if so how are you doing?

Thanks for reading

March 2019 Dividend Income

Canadian Currency, 100.00,  50.00,  20.00, 10.00, 5.00, dollar bills.

Hello everyone and welcome to my March income post. I hope everyone had a great month and received lots of dividends. The months of March, June, September and December are my busiest months for dividend payments from my stocks, so I’m always happy once those months end to go back and review what I received and to see if I set a new record. I am happy to report that I did indeed set a new dividend income record for a single month.

I received payments from 19 stocks and 1 ETF and my dividend received was $696.89 oh so close to the $700 figure. I received the money in all three of my accounts and the breakdown is as follows:

  • RRSP – $387.60
  • TFSA – $230.32
  • LIRA – $78.97

The money came in two currencies as I do own US stocks. However to keep things simple I use one currency (Canadian) for these posts. The currency breakdown for March is:

  • US    –    $74.78
  • CDN –    $622.11

Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP)

2018 2019
Enbridge $97.30 $112.91
Fortis $68.43 $93.15
Power Corp $41.23 $69.91
Inter Pipeline $36.85
Lockheed Martin $17.60
Home Depot $16.32
Johnson & Johnson $17.16 $14.40
Bank of America $5.54 $10.80
Realty Income $13.25 $10.60
Microsoft $5.93 $5.06
BMO US Dividend ETF $29.50
Canadian Utilities $60.96
Pizza Pizza Royalty Corp 16.83
Total $356.13 $387.60

My income increased thanks to new investments in Enbridge, Fortis, Power Corp and Inter Pipeline. Also I received my first payments from Home Depot and Lockheed Martin. You might have noticed that some of my US stocks paid me less than last year. Last year’s numbers where converted into Canadian dollars, this year I received them in US currency and reporting the income as Canadian.

Tax Free Savings Account (TFSA)

2018 2019
Canadian Utilities $65.10
Inter Pipeline $32.34 $34.84
Keg Royalties Income Fund $15.70 $28.38
Plaza REIT $11.70 $24.61
BMO International Dividend ETF $22.23
Chorus Aviation $17.32 $18.16
Boston Pizza Royalties Fund $12.31 $12.31
Canadian Apartment Properties REIT $8.85 $9.20
Canadian National Railway $6.83 $8.06
Artis REIT $14.04 $7.43
Corus Entertainment $17.67
Total $136.76 $230.32

The reason for the big jump in income is from my decision to move Canadian Utilities and the BMO International Dividend ETF into my TFSA account from my RRSP. New investments in Plaza REIT and the Keg Royalties Income Fund also helped.

LIRA

2018 2019
Enbridge $76.75
Diversified Royalty Corp $2.22
Enbridge Income Fund $26.55
Total $26.55 $78.97

Currently have two stocks in this account. Last year Enbridge bought Enbridge Income Fund and brought in back into the main company and that is why I currently hold Enbridge in this account as well as my RRSP. I am still undecided if I should sell Enbridge in this account and buy other stocks, the juicy dividend is making the decision hard for me.

2016 to 2019 Dividends

So far I have been able to keep the dividends growing every month, fingers crossed I can achieve this. 2019 is off to a great start for me!

Dividend Goal For 2019

For 2019 I have set a goal of wanting to receive at least $8,000 in dividend income. In order to achieve this I need to receive $2,000 every quarter. After the first quarter as you can see I am slightly behind on my goal. Ever though I am behind I’m still extremely happy with my performance this year, from this time last year my dividends have increased by $507.38.

Stock Buys/Sells

In this area March was very quiet for me I did not buy or sell any of my stocks. I chose to be quiet on this front so I can build up some cash in my accounts. I currently have $1,400 in my TFSA and I’m looking at one stock.

Stock Of Interest

As mentioned above I am interested in one stock. The stock is:

European Commercial Real Estate Investment Trust (ERE.UN)

Why do I like it? Well I currently have North America covered when it comes to real estate and this REIT only focuses on the European market so it would help my real estate diversification. Also it was announced that the company had completed the purchase of 41 properties in the Netherlands from Canadian Apartment Properties REIT (CAR.UN). I am a fan of CAR.UN and own shares of them, they will own part of ERE.UN as well so with them still involved I believe the future is bright.

Dividend Increase

I received one increase in March and that came from Alimentation Couche-Tard which increased their dividend by 25%.

 

Well folks how was your March? I hope you received lots of dividends! Please feel free to let me know how you did in the comment section below.

Thanks for Reading

February 2019 Dividend Income

pink_heart_money_000005120879

Hello everyone and welcome to my February dividend income post. We all know that February is best known for Valentine’s Day but I think investors should declare it the month of dividend raises. Everyday it seemed I was hearing a company raise their dividend also it seems every blogger or investor received at least 4 to 6 of these raises (I received 6).

In February I received $455.70 from 13 stocks and 1 ETF. February is one of my weaker months, but is it really weak when you receive over $400? Since January I keep my US dividends in US currency, and to keep things simple I am not converting the US currency I keep it all the same. Here is the breakdown currency wise for February.

  • US     $51.26
  • CDN $404.44

My portfolio consists of three accounts and here is what I received in each for the last month.

  • RRSP $256.80
  • TFSA $196.68
  • LIRA $2.22

RRSP

2018 2019
Royal Bank of Canada $70.07 $75.46
Bank of Montreal $66.03 $71.00
AbbVie $40.66
Inter Pipeline $36.85
BMO International Dividend ETF $22.23
Realty Income Corp $6.00 $10.60
BMO US Dividend ETF $29.50
Pizza Pizza Royalty Corp $16.76
Potash Corp $5.65
Total $194.01 $256.80

A couple of new investments (AbbVie & Inter Pipeline) late in 2018 contributed to the growth for this account. Also the dividend increases from the banks had a nice effect as well.

TFSA

2018 2019
Laurentian Bank $61.75
Inter Pipeline $18.52 $34.84
Keg Royalties Income Fund $15.70 $28.38
Plaza REIT $11.65 $24.61
Chorus Aviation $17.28 $18.16
Boston Pizza Royalties Fund $12.31 $12.31
Canadian Apartment Properties REIT $8.85 $9.20
Artis REIT $13.95 $7.43
Corus Entertainment $17.48
Total $115.74 $196.68

My purchase in October of Laurentian Bank is the big reason for the jump in income here.

LIRA

Diversified Royalty Corp $2.22

I currently own 2 stocks in this account and Diversified Royalty Corp is the only monthly paying stock.

2016 to 2019 Dividends

Everything continues to trend in the right direction in terms of dividend income flowing into the portfolio.

Dividend Goal For 2019

For this year I have set an ambitious goal of wanting to receive at least $8,000 in dividends. At the moment my forward dividend income is projected to reach $7,128 so I have some work to do.

Stock Purchases

I made three purchases in February all of them small. Two of the buys were to open new positions for me, and the other was to add to an existing positon.

  • Andrew Peller Ltd (for my TFSA) 45 shares
  • AbbVie (RRSP) 22 shares
  • Lockheed Martin (RRSP) 8 shares

 

Dividend Increases

I received six raises in February.

  • BCE raises to $0.7925 up from $0.755
  • TransCanada raises to $0.75 up from $0.69
  • RBC raises to $1.02 up from $0.98
  • ScotiaBank raises to $0.87 up from $0.85
  • Home Depot raises to $1.36 up from $1.03
  • Canadian Apartment Properties REIT raises to $0.1105 up from $0.1108

 

Well folks that will do it for my dividend post. I hope all of you had a great month and collected lots of dividends. Thank you for reading this I appreciate it.

First Two Purchases of 2019

Hi everyone thank you for stopping by today! Today as the title of the post tells you I will be telling you about the first two purchases I made this year. Before I do this I need to mention a change I made to my portfolio and why I chose the sectors that these stocks are in. In my January 2019 Dividend Income post I mentioned that I sold two stocks Corus Entertainment and ZCL Composites Inc. this obviously gave me some money to spend in my TFSA account. In my RRSP I held the BMO International Dividend ETF well I decided to sell it and use the funds in my TFSA to buy the exact same amount of shares. I did this because this now allowed me to have cash in my RRSP account, and allowed me to buy US stocks.

At the beginning of the year I decided to review my portfolio to see what sectors I am invested in. In doing this I seen areas where I need to stop investing, and areas where I need to increase my investments.  I found that Health Care, Consumer Defensive, Industrial and Tech are my weakest sectors and where I’m going to hopefully invest my money this year.

With that said my two purchases were in the health care and industrial sectors. Here is my first buy.

abbvie

AbbVie Inc. (AbbVie) is a research-based biopharmaceutical company. The Company is engaged in the discovery, development, manufacture and sale of a range of pharmaceutical products. Its products are focused on treating conditions, such as chronic autoimmune diseases in rheumatology, gastroenterology and dermatology; oncology, including blood cancers; virology, including hepatitis C virus (HCV) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV); neurological disorders, such as Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis; metabolic diseases, including thyroid disease and complications associated with cystic fibrosis, and other serious health conditions. It offers products in various categories, including HUMIRA (adalimumab), Oncology products, Virology Products, Additional Virology products, Metabolics/Hormones products, Endocrinology products and other products, which include Duopa and Duodopa (carbidopa and levodopa), Anesthesia products and ZINBRYTA (daclizumab).

(Source: RBC Direct Investing)

AbbVie has seen a decline in it’s share price since their last earnings release in January. The reason why is concern about their drug Humira as European generic drug competitors have eaten into it’s sales. Back in December I purchased 38 shares at a price of $87.41, so when I seen the price drop to under $80 I looked at it as a good buying opportunity and a chance to lower my costs.

On Feb 4th I purchased another 22 shares at a price of $79.93, this lowers my overall costs to $84.67. AbbVie pays a quarterly dividend of $1.07 and with this purchase my income will increase $23.54 quarterly and $94.16 annually.

 

My second purchase is a new position for me and it is an industrial stock. I have been looking at this stock for awhile now and believe it is positioned to do well over the long term. The stock is Lockheed Martin.

sacl_lmt_lockheed_martin_logo-e1514654491275 Lockheed Martin Corporation is a security and aerospace company. The Company operates through four segments. Aeronautics segment is engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration, sustainment, support and upgrade of military aircraft, including combat and air mobility aircraft, unmanned air vehicles and related technologies. Missiles and Fire Control segment provides air and missile defense systems; fire control systems; manned and unmanned ground vehicles, and energy management solutions. Rotary and Mission Systems segment provides design, manufacture, service and support for a range of military and civil helicopters; mission systems and sensors for rotary and fixed-wing aircraft; simulation and training services, and unmanned systems and technologies, among others. Space Systems segment is engaged in the research and development, design, engineering and production of satellites, strategic and defensive missile systems and space transportation systems.

(Source: RBC Direct Investing)

I have wanted to buy a stock is in the defence industry for awhile now as America has the biggest defence budget in the world and I don’t see that changing anytime soon. Lockheed Martin is a big player in the defence world, it currently has a $130.5 billion backlog in orders.

Lockheed has four business segments and their 2018 sales were as follows:

  1. Aeronautics $21.2 Billion
  2. Rotary & Mission Systems $14.3 Billion
  3. Space $9.8 Billion
  4. Missiles & Fire Control $8.5 Billion

 

According to Morningstar Lockheed Martin is currently undervalued and has a fair value of $324.79.

On Feb 4th I purchased 8 shares at a cost of $291.12 per share. Lockheed pays a quarterly dividend of $2.20 and with this buy my income will increase $17.60 quarterly and  $70.40 annually.

Well folks so what do you think of my purchases? Please feel free to comment below.

Third Dividend Increase of 2019

CN_med_red

 

Hi everyone today I just wanted to share with you a dividend increase I received back on Jan 29th. On January 29th the Board of Directors of Canadian National Railway announced an 18% increase to their dividend. This is the biggest dividend increase I have received from one stock which was great to see. This is the second increase I have received since owning the stock.

I currently own 15 shares of Canadian National Railway and with this announcement my quarterly income will increase by $1.23 and annually by $4.92.

If you own the stock then congrats on the raise.

January 2019 Dividend Income

Protecting a good investment and making money concept

Hi everyone and welcome to my January 2019 dividend income post. I will share with you all of the things that happened within my investing accounts in the month of January. 2019 got off to a great start for me, I was able to crack the $600 mark in dividends received for just the third time. I received a total of $620.32

high five

Income per account was as follows:

  • RRSP  $421.07
  • TFSA  $197.03
  • LIRA   $2.22

I would like to point out a change I have made to how I receive my dividends. Back in about the middle of December I moved all of my USD paying stocks to the US side of my RRSP accounts in order to keep the dividends in USD. The reason why I did this is because I want to buy more US stocks and this will help me to avoid converting my Canadian money into US which is expensive at the moment.

Starting with this update I will share with you what I received in both currencies. I am not going to convert my US dividends into Canadian money, I will keep it simple.

Income Per Currency

  • Canadian $520.11
  • US $100.21

RRSP

2018 2019
BCE $78.93 $104.95
TransCanada $63.75 $100.74
Telus $50.50 $56.14
Altria Group $48.80 USD
Algonquin Power & Utilities $44.87 $41.02 USD
Inter Pipeline $36.34
BMO International Dividend ETF $22.23
Realty Income Corp $10.39 USD
North West Company $0.32 $0.32
Leon’s Furniture $0.12 $0.14
Pizza Pizza Royalty Corp $16.76
BMO US Dividend ETF $33.53
Total $288.78 $421.07

New investments were the contributing factor within this account. This is a nice solid start to 2019 for this account, hopefully this will continue throughout the year.

TFSA

2018 2019
The Keg Royalties Income Fund $20.68 $37.38
Inter Pipeline $18.52 $34.34
ZCL Composites Inc $27.24 $30.65
Plaza REIT $11.25 $24.61
Bank of Nova Scotia $22.95
Chorus Aviation $17.28 $18.16
Boston Pizza Royalties Fund $12.31 $12.31
Canadian Apartment Properties REIT $8.85 $9.20
Artis REIT $13.95 $7.43
Corus Entertainment $17.48
Total $147.56 $197.03

Good growth here as well. The goal over time is to receive more dividends in this account than my RRSP. Investments I made last year are the main reason why my income increased this month. Towards the end of 2018 I did receive a dividend cut from Artis REIT which was disappointing, I am hanging onto the stock for now.

LIRA

Diversified Royalty Corp $2.22

This account currently only has two stocks Enbridge which pays a dividend in March, June, September and December and Diversified Royalty Corp which pays monthly.

DRIP

Another change I made in mid December was I decided to cancel the drip to all of my stocks. I did this because I would like to build up my cash and direct the money to where I want it. Also this year I am going to focus on investing more of my money into my TFSA as I have quite a bit of unused contribution room available.

That being said when I made the decision the ex dividend date on already passed on three stocks so I did drip three stocks in January:

  • Telus 1 share
  • BCE 1 share
  • Inter Pipeline 2 shares

These 4 additional shares will boost my income this year by $8.62.

2016 to 2019 Dividends

2019 Dividend Goal

This year I have set a goal of wanting to collect $8,000 in dividends. Wish me luck!

Dividend Increases

In January I received three raises.

  • Canadian Utilities raised their dividend to $0.4227 up from $0.3933 per share
  • Realty Income Corp raised their dividend to $0.2255 up from $0.2210
  • Canadian National Railway raised their dividend to $0.5375 up from $0.455

Sold Stocks

In January I sold two of my stocks in my TFSA account:

  • Corus Entertainment
  • ZCL Composities Inc.

I sold Corus after a recent rally in its share price. I believe they are in a tough industry and have a long road ahead of them. After they cut the dividend last year the stock dropped to under $4, lately the stock had been rising and I decided to sell at $5.78 per share so I was able to recoup some of my money.

With ZCL Composites Inc. I sold because they were going to be purchased and taken private by Shawcor when the stock rose to near the buyout price I decided to sell and put my money to better use elsewhere.

Well folks that wraps up my month of January. How did you do? Please feel free to let me know in the comment section below.

Thanks

Second Dividend Raise of 2019

Realty Income Corp

Hi everyone I’m here to share another dividend raise with you. Yesterday the board of directors of Realty Income Corp announced a 3% raise to their dividend. This is the 5th raise from Realty Income Corp that I have received since I first bought shares early in 2018. The company will now pay a monthly dividend of $0.2255 up from $0.2210.

I currently own 47 shares and with this announcement my monthly income will increase by $0.21 and annually by $2.52.

If you own Realty Income Corp then congrats on the raise 🙂

Thanks for reading!

Matthew
