August 2016 Income

Hello everyone I hope you are all doing great. This is my favourite post as I get to tell you how my portfolio did in the month of August. August was a quiet month for me as I did not make any purchases, I sat back and collected dividends.

My portfolio consists of two accounts a TFSA (Tax Free Savings Account) and an RRSP (Registered Retirement Savings Account). For my TFSA I earned $89.14, and my RRSP earned $209.09 for a total of $298.23 so close to $300.

TFSA

Inter Pipeline $17.03
The Keg Royalties Income Fund $15.24
Artis Real Estate Investment Trust $13.95
Boardwalk Real Estate Investment Trust $13.13
Boston Pizza Royalties Fund $12.31
Chorus Aviation $10.92
Corus Entertainment $6.56

RRSP

Royal Bank of Canada $62.37
Bank of Montreal $61.06
Proctor & Gamble $53.56
Pizza Pizza Royalty Corp $16.76
Potash Corp $14.64
Alimentation Couche-Tard $0.70

2016 Dividends

I have received a total of $2,373.72 this year. At the beginning of 2016 I set a goal of wanting to receive $3,500 so I still have $1,126.28 to go before I achieve it.

Increases/Decreases

In August my portfolio received two dividend increases and no decreases.

  • On August 10th, 2016 The Keg Royalties Income Fund increases their dividend 2% $0.0900 to $0.0918.
  • On August 24th, 2016 Royal Bank of Canada increased their dividend 2% $0.81 to $0.83.

So that wraps up my August post I hope you guys had a good month as well. Let me know how you are doing?

  1. Way to go Freezeman. Nearly $300! That's cool from the comment above that you expect to surpass your goal, and that you know by exactly (to the penny :), how much you will beat it by. Mine is still a toss up. I'm not even half way yet, and with only 4 months left, it is going to be super close. We'll see!
