Hello and welcome everyone to my June income post. Also today is Canada Day so I would like to wish my fellow Canadians a happy and safe holiday.
June was a busy month for me in terms of dividends received. I had a great month, it was the best month I had in which no special distributions were paid out by any of my investments. I received payments from 17 stocks and 1 ETF. My income collect from these stocks came in at $718.53.
The income breakdown per account is as follows:
- RRSP $412.07
- TFSA $227.49
- LIRA $78.97
In June most of my US stocks paid me so my US income was higher this month here is the currency breakdown for June.
- USD $75.60
- CDN $642.93
To keep things nice and easy I pretend the US money is Canadian that way I don’t have to convert it.
|Johnson & Johnson||$18.59||$15.20|
|Bank of America||$5.70||$10.80|
|US Dividend ETF||$31.88|
|Pizza Pizza Royalty Corp||$17.04|
New investments as well as dividend increases paved the way for growth in my RRSP. I did eliminate three positions, well really only two as Canadian Utilities is now in my TFSA account. You may notice that my US stocks paid me more last year well that was when my brokerage was converting the income for me. As mentioned above I now keep the US income in US dollars.
|BMO International Dividend ETF||$38.79|
|Keg Royalties Income Fund||$15.70||$28.38|
|Canadian Apartment Properties REIT||$9.20||$9.55|
|Canadian National Railway||$6.83||$8.06|
|Boston Pizza Royalties Fund||$12.31|
|ZCL Composites Inc||$90.80|
My income decreased slightly here only because ZCL Composites Inc was bought and taken private earlier this year, so I no longer receive that special distribution.
|Diversified Royalty Corp||$2.22|
|Enbridge Income Fund||$26.55|
Not too much happening in this account 🙂
2016 To 2019 Dividends
Dividend Goal 2019
With the start of the second half of the year beginning today I look back at the first half and realize that I am pretty close to being on track to achieve my goal of receiving $8,000 in dividends this year. At the end of May I must admit I was having some doubts but now after looking at the gauge above I believe I can do it. I will just need to make some more purchases.
- Bought 7 shares of AbbVie
I bought 7 shares last week when the news broke that AbbVie was going to buy Allegren for $63 billion and the stock dropped 16%. This purchase added $29 to my forward dividend income.
- Realty Income
- Andrew Peller Ltd
- Bank of America
These three increases I received will boost my forward dividend income by a further $9. After the increases and one purchase I made in June my forward dividend income now stands at $7,439.
Well folks that is a wrap on my June income post. I hope all of you had a great month as well. Please feel free to let me know how you did in the comment section.
