Hi everyone welcome to my November 2017 income report. This is my favourite post to write as I get to share with you the dividends I received from my investments. The month of November was a busy month for my portfolio with a couple of buys and a sell.
My portfolio consists of two accounts the Tax Free Savings Account (TFSA) and the Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) for the month of November I received a total of $287.15 from my investments. $101.30 in my TFSA and $185.85 in my RRSP. The months of February, May, August and November tend to be quieter months in terms of dividends received as I don’t have two many heavy hitters paying me.
Let’s get to the numbers shall we.
|Boardwalk Real Estate Investment Trust||$17.63|
|The Keg Royalties Income Fund||$15.70|
|Artis Real Estate Investment Trust||$13.95|
|Boston Pizza Royalties Fund||$12.31|
Last November my income was $89.31 so there is some nice growth this year. I achieved this growth through further investments in Chorus Aviation and Boardwalk REIT. Also through dividend increases from Inter Pipeline and The Keg Royalties Income Fund. I just want to mention this will be the last month I receive dividend income from Boardwalk REIT as I sold this stock in the month.
|Royal Bank of Canada||$70.07|
|Bank of Montreal||$63.90|
|BMO US Dividend ETF||$29.50|
|Pizza Pizza Royalty Corp.||$16.76|
As you can see not too many stocks paid me this month. Last year in this account I received $203.71. There was a decrease this year because I had received a payment from Proctor & Gamble which I have now sold. My purchase of BMO US Dividend ETF and dividend increases from the banks helped replace some of the income but not enough.
2016 vs 2017 Dividends
As you can see there is a slight decrease in my total this year compared to last. Once again this is due to my selling of Proctor & Gamble. I should see growth return next year.
2017 Dividend Goal
As you can see I am oh so close to achieving my goal of receiving $4,000 dividends in 2017. It is safe to say I will achieve this.
- On Nov 2nd The Keg Royalties Income Fund increased their dividend by 3.1% raising the dividend to 9.46 cents per unit from 9.18 cents.
- On Nov 29th Enbridge raised their dividend 10% their third increase this year. The dividend goes to $0.671 from $0.61.
- Sold all my shares in Boardwalk REIT.
I made two purchases this month however since I haven’t written about them I will keep you in suspense a little bit further. Sorry guys 🙂
I will write about one later this week.
Well folks that is a wrap to my income report. How did you do in November? Please feel free to share in the comment section.
