May 2019 Dividend Income

May income

Hello and welcome to my dividend income post for May. In this post I will show you everything that happened in my portfolio. I will share all of the income I received from the 14 stocks and 1 ETF that paid me. Also all of the dividend increases (5) that I received and finally all of the trades I made (5).

In May I was paid a total of $482.69 from 14 stocks and 1 ETF in all three of my investment accounts. The account breakdown is as follows:

  • RRSP $261.21
  • TFSA $219.26
  • LIRA $2.22

Two of the stocks that paid me were US based and so I received some US money. Here is the breakdown of the currency that was received:

  • Canadian $407.87
  • US              $74.82

To keep things nice and easy I pretend the US money is Canadian that way I don’t have to convert it.


2018 2019
Royal Bank of Canada $72.38 $78.54
Bank of Montreal $66.03 $71.00
AbbVie $64.20
Inter Pipeline $36.85
Realty Income $13.14 $10.62
BMO US Dividend ETF $31.81
Pizza Pizza Royalty Corp $16.97
Total $200.33 $261.21

A quiet month for my RRSP account as not too many stocks pay me. My income did see a nice increase from my purchases of AbbVie and Inter Pipeline last December.


2018 2019
Laurentian Bank $61.75
Inter Pipeline $32.62 $34.84
Keg Royalties Income Fund $15.70 $28.38
Plaza REIT $23.61 $24.61
BMO International Dividend ETF $22.23
Chorus Aviation $17.48 $18.16
Boston Pizza Royalties Fund $12.31 $12.31
Canadian Apartment Properties REIT $8.85 $9.55
Artis REIT $14.22 $7.43
Corus Entertainment $18.05
Total $142.84 $219.26

A fairly busy month for my TFSA since most of the stocks are monthly dividend payers. The big reason for the income boost is from Laurentian Bank which I bought last fall.


2018 2019
Diversified Royalty Corp $2.22
Enbridge Income Fund $26.55
Total $26.55 $2.22

  1. Excellent month Matthew! Great job. I’m excited to see your chart continue to show growth and progress. Keep up the excellent work my friend. Also – this baseball season is proving to be a dud here and north of the border. Hopefully the Indians have not missed their window! But I’m sure all of that is forgotten now that the Raptors won the championship!
