Hey everyone how are you? I hope you all had a fantastic month of October and collected lots of dividends from your investments. Today I am going to look back and share with you my October. Last month was pretty darn good one. On the 15th my 2019 dividend income surpassed my 2018 income two and a half months early. I’m excited to see where I end up by the end of the year.
For October I received payments from 18 stocks and 1 ETF, from these I received a total of $669.14 a new October high for me. I have three investment accounts and the income breakdown is as follows:
- RRSP $386.45
- TFSA $279.13
- LIRA $3.56
I had three US stocks pay me so here is the currency that I received the dividends in. Just a reminder to keep things simple I report the US currency as Canadian that way I don’t have to convert it to Canadian.
- USD $107.03
- CDN $562.11
|Algonquin Power & Utilities||$52.52||$45.12|
|Realty Income Corp||$13.43||$10.67|
|North West Company||$0.32||$0.33|
|BMO International Dividend ETF||$22.23|
|BMO US Dividend ETF||$32.09|
New investments in Altria and TC Energy helped me offset the loss of the two ETFs. Another key to my growth this month was dividend increases from BCE, Telus, and TC Energy.
|Bank of Nova Scotia||$93.60|
|BMO International ETF||$38.79|
|The Keg Royalties Income Fund||$28.10||$28.66|
|Plaza Retail REIT||$24.22||$24.85|
|Canadian Apartment Properties REIT||$9.20||$9.55|
|European Residential REIT||$3.94|
|Andrew Peller Ltd||$2.42|
|Boston Pizza Royalties Fund||$12.31|
|ZCL Composites Inc||$30.65|
New investments are the key to the growth here, as you can see I received payments from five stocks that I didn’t have last October.
|Diversified Royalty Corp||$3.56|
|Enbridge Income Fund||$26.55|
All quiet here, not too much going on with this account.
October turned out to be another great month for me, I was able to drip a large amount of new shares that will help fuel my dividend growth.
|# Of Shares||Forward Income|
|Plaza Retail REIT||5||$1.40|
|Algonquin Power & Utilities||3||$1.69|
|Bank of Nova Scotia||1||$3.60|
|The Keg Royalties Income Fund||1||$1.13|
|Diversified Royalty Corp||1||$0.22|
I bet last month’s total lol. I can see a trend I will be having one slow month followed by two great months. After a couple of years I’m looking forward to seeing what this chart will show. Do you guys drip your shares or take cash?
2016 To 2019 Dividends
Dividend Goal 2019
As mentioned above on October 15th my 2019 income surpassed my entire 2018 total. My goal for this year was $8,000 and over the next two months I’m predicting I will receive between $1,100 – $1,300 so I will fall just a little short but that’s ok. I believe this year has been very successful.
I made two buys in the month, they were both stocks I already owned and wanted to add to my position.
- Suncor 28 shares
- Texas Instruments 13 shares
None that I am aware of this month.
Well everyone that does it for my monthly wrap up. I hope you all had a great month. Please feel free to let me know how you did in the comments below.
