Hello everyone and thank you for stopping by my site. First of all I hope my fellow Canadians all had a great Canada Day long weekend. I also hope my American friends and readers are having a great July 4th long weekend. This is my favourite post of the month to do as I get to share with you how my portfolio performed last month.
June was a fairly quiet month for me in terms of buying and selling as I only made one transaction. In terms of dividends received it was busy. June saw me receive dividends from 14 companies and 1 ETF. My portfolio currently consists of 25 stocks and 1 ETF, my portfolio also consists of two accounts the Tax Free Savings Account (TFSA) and the Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP). In June I received a total of $362.19 in dividends, $100.84 in my TFSA and $261.35 in my RRSP.
Let’s take a look at what I received last month.
|Boardwalk Real Estate Investment Trust||$17.63|
|The Keg Royalties Income Fund||$15.24|
|Artis Real Estate Investment Trust||$13.95|
|Boston Pizza Royalties Fund||$12.31|
|BMO US Dividend ETF||$31.29|
|Pizza Pizza Royalty Corp||$16.76|
2016 and 2017 Dividends
As you can see my income increased by nearly $100 ($93.19 to be exact) compared to 2016. This is due to my increased investments in Boardwalk Real Estate Investment Trust, Chorus Aviation, Westjet and Power Corp of Canada. Also I made a new investment earlier this year in Exco Technologies. Also another contributor is dividend increases from six companies.
At the beginning of the year I set a goal of wanting to receive $4000.00 in dividends. As you can see through six months of 2017 I am on pace to surpass that goal. Hopefully I can maintain this pace for the second half of the year.
In June none of my companies increased or decreased their dividends.
I made one purchase in June.
- On June 9th I purchased 26 shares of Enbridge
Well folks that wraps up my June report. I hope everyone had a great month as well. Please feel free to let me know how you did in the comment section.
