January 2018 – Dividend Update


This year is off to the races! Time for a fresh start and I’m feeling more determined than ever! Here are the dividends I’ve received in January 2018 from both of my investing accounts:


  • Financial 15 (FTN): $178.37
  • Savaria Corp (SIS): $16.56
  • Park Lawn Corp (PLC): $24.89
  • Enbridge Income Fund Holdings (ENF): $10.09
  • Sienna Senior Living (SIA): $2.85


  • Financial 15 (FTN): $352.84
  • Savaria Corp (SIS): $2.10
  • Enbridge Income Fund Holdings (ENF): $9.07
  • Dream Global REIT (DRG.UN): $18.00
  • Roger’s Sugar (RSI): $15.57
  • Old Republic (ORI): $36.80
  • Dollorama (DOL): $0.55

Total: $694.96

Last year, in January 2017, I had received a total of $576.47, which represents a YoY increase of 20.6% (see graph).

I still have a good $9,300+ if I want to reach my goal of $10,000 by the end of the year. Lots of time left. My current annual forward dividend yield is $8,257.05 so I will have to do some more contributing before I can actually reach my goal.

  • Dollorama (DOL) – Entire position
  • Rogers Sugar (RSI) – Entire position



  • Sienna Senior Living (SIA) – 57 shares
  • Enbridge Income Holding Fund (ENF) – 4 shares


  • Dream Global REIT (DRG.UN) – 22 shares
  • Realty Income (O) – 27 shares
  • Unilever (UL) – 20 shares
  • Old Republic (ORI) – 30 shares

Dividend Raises:

I was lucky enough to get a 10.8% dividend raise from Metro (MRU) in January. This represents a small (even negligible) annual dividend change since my MRU position is very small. Nonetheless, I am happy!


1- Continue to increase my diversity (US stocks) in my RRSP. I will try to make more contributions as the year goes by and add to my current UL, O, OHI positions. I will also try to initiate some new positions in Pfizer, 3M and New Residential.

2- The My Evil Master Plan is still underway. Patience is key, as looking at the day-to-day fluctuations is making me nauseous…. +20% here, -15% there… Jesus… Still waiting for the 3-bagger status.

3- Fortify some of my current TFSA positions such as SAP, SIA, T. And potentially initiate some new positions in companies like Highliner Foods, ZCL Composites, or Chorus Aviation (this is my current watchlist). I plan on initiating a DRG.UN position in my TFSA as well because I’ll be busy putting my money elsewhere in my RRSP (where my current DRG.UN sits) and feel like I should fortify this position as well.

What are your more short or medium term goals??

As always, thank you so much for reading these updates!

  1. Nice. Great income and year over year growth. Nice moves with the rrsp. I feel the tfsa should be stacked with canaduan equitys and the rrsp full of us equitys.
    Goood luck on your goal. Ill be following your journey!

    • Thanks! Yes I agree with the RRSP/TFSA strategy. I’m trying to have the majority of my RRSP stock be US stocks. I’ll keep the Canadian companies because I have hem already, but new purchases will be US only most likely. Thanks for reading and commenting! Cheers


  2. Hi DI, nice to have some goals ahead of you, certainly achievable. Patience is key isn’t it, I think steadily adding to your portfolio should see your dividends grow nicely! I have pretty modest investment goals this year because I’m saving for a commercial property deposit, but I’m still looking to buy value and increase my dividends! Good luck in 2018!

  3. Nice 20% increase to start out the year. Beats my decrease, but I’ll make up for it soon. Looks like you had a lot of activity with all the buys and sells. And O will give you some nice monthly passive income increases.

  4. Awesome YOY results, Dividend Investor! A 20.6% increase is very impressive when you’re already generating that much passive income. Good luck with your goal to earn $10,000 this year. I look forward to future updates. Keep it up!
