June 2018 – Dividend Update

I think it’s the first time I’m ever this late in posting my monthly dividend update, but it’s for good reasons. I’ll keep this brief and jump right into it!

Here are the dividends I’ve received in June 2018 from both of my investing accounts:

TFSA:

  • Financial 15 (FTN): $189.18
  • Savaria Corp (SIS): $22.53
  • Enbridge Income Fund Holdings (ENF): $18.45
  • Saputo (SAP): $9.44
  • Park Lawn Corp (PLC): $27.59
  • Sienna Senior Living (SIA): $18.83
  • Medical Facilities Corp (DR): $30.32

RRSP:

  • Financial 15 (FTN): $374.33
  • Savaria Corp (SIS): $2.10
  • Enbridge Income Fund Holdings (ENF): $9.98
  • Dream Global REIT (DRG.UN): $19.80
  • Realty Income (O): $12.58
  • Old Residential (ORI): $7.62
  • Unilever (UL): $12.22

Total: $754.97

Last year, in June 2017, I had received a total of $689.00, which represents a YoY increase of 9.6% (see graph).

This month brings me up to $4,554.00 in total annual dividends, which means I’m almost halfway to reaching my goal of $10,000 by the end of the year.

Sales:

None.

Purchases:

None.

Extra Shares from DRIP:

  • FTN : 55 Shares
  • DRG.UN: 1 Share
  • DR: 2 Shares
  • SIA: 1 Share
  • PLC: 1 Share

Forward Annual Dividend:

My current annual forward dividend total is $9,824.27. As I’ve said before, this number is more important to me than the actual dividends received. I’m only $175.73 away from generating $10,000 in passive income on a yearly basis!

2018 Plan / Update:

The plan is overall the same +/- some adjustments

1- Initiate more positions and gain exposure to new US positions. This is the same

2- Max out my TFSA and RRSP. Again, the same. Will require patience and much discipline…

3- Re-organize my US and Canadian positions. Meh, no rush.

4- I might take advantage of this recent run from ENF and MRU to dump both of my positions and re-initiate my BLX position. I’m also looking at BEP to see if this is an interesting possibility.

Let me hear about your month! Comment below with a link 🙂 And let me know what you think of BEP or BEP-UN.TO

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

    • Absolutely, I’m thinking that around whenever it goes up slightly to around $11 I’ll chop some more off. I did sell off a pretty significant chunk earlier this year (or maybe 2017..) and plan on doing it again. I’ll be buying more Saputo as well, it is a great company, lots of acquisitions as well. Same goes for Savaria, they’re savages…

  1. Hello Dividend Investor. Awesome job growing your dividends month over month, your YouTube videos actually got be into the stock market, but since i don’t have enough capital to dividend invest I am doing a lot of value investing, and actually took some shares in FAR.CN and IME.CN. Are you still holding your positions, if yes for how long are you planning on holding?

    Thanks

  2. Hey there!
    You mentioned that you are dropping FTN. Do you believe that it is not sustainable? If so, what leads you to believe this?
    I have binge watched all your youtube vids over the past few days! Absolutely amazing! I have learnt more from you than any of the books I have read so far! I am about to start maxing out my TSFA, and FTN is one of the major stocks I am looking at to fill. Is this still a good idea as of mid August 2018?
    Thanks.

    • I’m not a financial advisor so I can’t make any recommendations.
      I don’t remember saying I was dropping it, I might be decreasing my position because of the overweight status right now.

      Thanks for watching 🙂

      • I see, I am confused as to what you mean by overweight status. As in too large a holding within your portfolio? You are looking to buy other stocks to reduce its overall percentage of your portfolio, or do you mean to sell a few shares to raise capital for others?

      • I am long this position, for the next 10 years at least. But I will trim it a little bit because it represents too much % of my entire portfolio. Whenever the price goes up I will sell maybe 5-10% of my position to add to another position, etc.
