Hello everyone and welcome to my post where I will share with you how I did last month collecting dividends. I hope you all had a great month. Personally I had a very good month, I had a big increase this September compared to last September. Last month I cracked the $400 mark for the fourth time this year. 🙂
My portfolio consists of two accounts, first is the Tax Free Savings Account (TFSA) and the second is the Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP). I received dividends from 16 stocks and 1 ETF. So in September I received a total of $403.27 (2016: $285.41) an increase of $117.86. In my TFSA account I received 107.03. In my RRSP I received $296.24.
|Boardwalk Real Estate Investment Trust||$17.63|
|The Keg Royalties Income Fund||$15.24|
|Artis Real Estate Investment Trust||$13.95|
|Boston Pizza Royalties Income Fund||$12.31|
|Canadian National Railway||$6.19|
In 2016 I had received $89.14 so my income has increased by $17.89. The reason for the increase this year is due to a dividend increase from Inter Pipeline. Also I increased my investment in Chorus Aviation and Boardwalk Real Estate Investment Trust. Finally I purchased my newest stock Canadian National Railway in the nick of time and received my first dividend from them.
Fun fact with the dividends this month my TFSA account has crossed the $1,000 mark in dividends received. Last year I only received $873.40 and that was for the whole year. I am very happy with the progress of this account 🙂
|BMO US Dividend ETF||$31.29|
|Pizza Pizza Royalty Corp.||$16.76|
In 2016 I had received $196.27 so my income has increased by $99.97. Some of the reasons for this big jump is due to dividend increases from Enbridge (2), Fortis, Canadian Utilities, Power Corp and Alimentation Couche-Tard. I also made additional investments in Enbridge, Westjet and Alimentation Couche-Tard. Also purchased a new stock Exco Technologies
This is my first dividend from Enbridge since I purchased an additional 51 shares back in May and June and that boosted my income by $31.13.
2016 vs 2017 Dividends
2017 Dividend Goal
Back in January I set a goal of wanting to receive $4,000 in dividends this year. Well after September as you can see I have collected $3,221.13 with three months to go in 2017. I feel very confident that I will reach my goal.
I made one stock purchase in Sept.
- On Sept 7th purchased 15 shares of Canadian National Railway
I did not sell any stock in Sept.
I did not receive any dividend increases or decreases this month.
Well folks there you have it my September income report. I hope you enjoyed reading this post, I enjoy sharing my progress with you. I also hope that you had a great month as well.
Thanks for reading
