Hi everyone I hope you are all doing great, and receiving lots of dividends. Today I am going to share with you some dividend raises I have received in the month of May. For me it seems the raises I receive come in bunches so for this month instead of doing individual posts for each raise. I thought it would be better to combine them in one post. That being said you probably have heard about 3 of the raises as they happened on May 8, 10 and 11th.
Let’s get to the raises shall we!
On May 8th Canadian Apartment Properties Real Estate Investment Trust announced that they would be increasing their dividend to $1.33 from $1.28. The company pays a monthly dividend so this works out to a dividend of $0.1108 per month up from $0.1066. This is the first increase I have received from this stock and hopefully it won’t be the last.
I currently own 83 shares so with this announcement my monthly income will improve to $9.20 up from $8.85 an increase of $0.35. My forward income for the year improves by $4.20.
The first payment of the new dividend will take place in June with May’s distribution.
On May 10th like clock work Telus announced another raise for their dividend. For the past few years Telus has increased their dividend twice a year. With this announcement Telus is increasing their dividend to $0.525 from $0.505. Telus pays a quarterly dividend. This is the 6th raise I have received this I first started investing in the company.

The dividend increase comes into effect with the July 3rd payment.
