Hello everyone Happy Halloween. It’s time for my favourite post, today I will be sharing with you how many dividends I received in October. If feels like I just wrote my September post the other day where is the time going? October was a good month for me I hope it was for you as well. This month saw me receive dividends from 15 stocks and 1 ETF, including 4 today to finish off the month.
My portfolio consists of two accounts my Tax Free Savings Account (TFSA) and my Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP). In October I received $399.38 I was so so close to $400.
A couple reasons why I missed out was because of currency exchange from Algonquin Power & Utilities dividend and because my ETF lowered it’s payout. I can’t really complain collecting $399 is pretty darn good. For my TFSA account I received $116.08 and my RRSP received $283.30.
|Boardwalk Real Estate Investment Trust||$17.63|
|ZCL Composites Inc.||$15.24|
|The Keg Royalties Income Fund||$15.24|
|Artis Real Estate Investment Trust||$13.95|
|Boston Pizza Royalties Fund||$12.31|
In October I received $116.08 compared to $99.30 in October 2016 an increase of $16.78. I received more this year by making additional investments in Chorus Aviation, Boardwalk REIT and a dividend increase from ZCL Composites Inc.
|Algonquin Power & Utilities||$44.67|
|BMO US Dividend ETF||$29.50|
|Pizza Pizza Royalty Corp||$16.76|
I received $283.38 this compared to 2016 when I received $280.90 I was able to grow my income $2.48. This was achieved by dividend increases from BCE, TransCanada, Telus and Algonquin Power & Utilities. I should point out that with the increases my income increase was small because last year I held JP Morgan and received $56.20, I sold the stock last November.
2016 vs 2017 Dividends
I am quite happy to see another month of growth. I always want to improve my results, my income this month compared to 2016 increased by $19.15.
2017 Dividend Goal
My march toward $4,000 continues I am now just $379.49 away from achieving my goal. So happy to see this. I am also happy to report that this month I surpassed my 2016 total with two months to spare.
- On October 16th Fortis increased their dividend 6.25% to $0.425 from $0.40 per share.
Buys & Sells
No buys or sells for me this month I sat back and collected those dividends.
