2017 vs 2016 Dividends

I am down slightly from last August due to the fact that Proctor & Gamble is no longer in my portfolio. However the dividend increases from my other stocks have narrowed the gap.

2017 Dividends

So through the first eight months of the year I have received $2,817.86 in dividends. I am just 1,185.14 away from reaching my goal of $4,000 by year end.


It was a quiet month for me in this area I did not make any transactions I sat back and collected my dividends.

In August I received one dividend increase from Royal Bank of Canada and that occurred on August 23rd. The dividend was raised to $0.91 per quarter from $0.87.

  1. Very nice month Matthew! Congrats on the great progress. Love the fact that you are making such great progress towards knocking out your goals. Man soon you will blow past the $300 mark and never look back for this month of the quarter.

    Keep it up.

  2. I enjoyed reading your interview on My Own Advisor and thought that you are making great progress to achieving your financial goals. It’s tough being a millennial trying to invest when there are so many challenges that you need to face.

    I enjoy tracking my dividends too and I had been doing it for almost ten years, but I only do it every quarter. My kids are taking up most of my time now.
