Another one bites the dust! I’ve been making a lot of changes in the past months so let’s see exactly how that affected my dividend performance. Here are the dividends I’ve received in November 2017 from both of my investing accounts:
- Financial 15 (FTN): $174.22
- Savaria Corp (SIS): $16.56
- Park Lawn Corp (PLC): $20.03
- Enbridge Income Fund Holdings (ENF): $10.09
- Sienna Senior Living Corp (SIA): $2.85
- Financial 15 (FTN): $406.51
- Savaria Corp (SIS): $2.10
- Dollorama Inc (DOL): $0.55
- Enbridge Income Fund Holdings (ENF): $9.07
- Dream Global REIT (DRG.UN): $17.87
- Metro Inc (MRU): $1.95
Last year, in November 2016, I had received a total of $670.78, which represents a YoY decrease of 1.3% (see graph). All in all fairly steady. This is the first month to not see a YoY increase in 2017. Let’s hope it stays that way…
I’m up to $7,159.58 for the YEAR (see graph). So, I have $840.42 left to go if I want to reach my 2017 goal of $8,000. With only December left, I think I will fall short by less than $200 meaning I will have reached at least 97.5% of my goal. Shaping up to be a successful year in my opinion.
1- The value plays I have been doing will serve to increase the dividend stocks and boost my 2018 income. My goal remains $10,000 for 2018 and If I use my actual portfolio and project it 12 months forward, I should get about $8,200 excluding any compounding, new contributions (such as the ones that will come from the said value plays), and the BLX shares that I will repurchase.
2- The next few months will be focused mainly on balancing my portfolio, particularly the smaller Canadian positions in my TFSA.
3- For my RRSP, the goal will be to increase my exposure to US stocks. Preferably blue chip stocks and preferably before the Canadian dollar drops too much.
Let’s see those numbers!
