Hello everyone and welcome to my February dividend income post. How was your February? Mine was good, I was busy making small purchases in my TFSA account. Also I received a new high in income for the month of February thanks to Power Corp moving their first payment of the year.
I received $506.33 this month, which represents growth of 6.5% compared to February 2020. Nine stocks and one ETF paid me this month. Here is the income per account.
- RRSP $300.44
- TFSA $205.89
Four US stocks paid me this month, so here is the currency in which I received the dividends in. To keep things simple I report the US currency as Canadian, that way I don’t have to convert it.
- USD $187.67
- CDN $318.66
Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP)
|Bank of Montreal||$96.46|
|Realty Income Corp||$10.93|
|Royal Bank of Canada||$100.80|
There was some big changes for this account. Power Corp moved their payment to Feb which was a bonus, but this will be the last payment for them in this account. Also as you see my Canadian banks don’t pay anymore as well, they are now only in my TFSA. I saw my first dividend payments from Apple and General Dynamics, I’m hoping over time to increase my position in both of these stocks.
Tax Free Savings Account (TFSA)
|Bank of Montreal||$56.18|
|Royal Bank of Canada||$43.20|
|iShares Capped REIT ETF (XRE)||$33.73|
|The Keg Royalties Income Fund||$29.04||$10.75|
|BMO International Dividend ETF||$38.79|
|European Residential REIT||$7.02|
|Canadian Apartment REIT||$9.55|
Income grew 25% this month which was great to see. There was lots of movement in this account over the last year going forward that should change and I plan on increasing my positions the two banks and Power Corp.
Two months of growth over 2020 numbers, great way to start 2021. Let’s see how long I can keep it up.
2021 Dividend Goal
After a couple of months I’ve achieved 17% of my goal.
- Inter Pipeline
Decided to sell my position in Inter Pipeline, they are currently a target of Brookfield as they have launched a bid to take the company private. I sold my shares a $1.25 over their initial offer and didn’t see the share price rising much further.
- XAW ETF
- TC Energy
- Brookfield Renewable Partners Corporation
- Alimentation Couche-Tard
- Royal Bank of Canada
- Bank of Montreal
- Canadian National Railway
- Merck & Co. Inc
Great month for the portfolio in terms of dividend increases. I received 7 raises this month.
- 3M 1%
- Brookfield Renewable Partners 5%
- BCE 5%
- Home Depot 10%
- Aecon 9.3%
- Go Easy Ltd 47%
- TC Energy 7.4%
Sadly I received one cut this month. The cut was to be expected with Canada mostly in lockdown due to Covid.
- The Keg Royalties Income Fund 30%
Hope everyone had a great month!
Thanks for reading!
