This month brings me up to $8,706.72 in total annual dividends, which means I still have about $1,300 to go if I want to reach my goal of $10,000 by the end of the year.

Dividend Raises:

  • Telus: Increased their dividend from $0.525/Share/Qt to $0.545/Share/Qt, representing a 3.8% raise. Adding roughly $20 of added forward annual dividends.

Forward Annual Dividend:

My current annual forward dividend total is $9,708.00 I’m maintaining the goal of $10,000 by the end of this year. I’m also maintaining the goal of $14,000 by the end of 2019. Brace yourselves, I’m also maintaining my goal of $35,000 annual forward dividend income by the end of 2023.

2018 Plan / Update:

1- More US positions, eventually.

  • Same

2- Keep an eye out for Emerging Market Dividend ETF (Diversification and all).

  • Wait a little, I think EM will go lower before higher.

3- Max out my TFSA and RRSP.  Officially saying this isn’t going to happen in 2018. But, 2019 will most definitely be the year where all accounts are filled.

  • Heck yeah!

4- Open up my investment account within my newly opened Corporate account and start contributing in there. I imagine 2019 is where this will also happen.

Let me hear about your month! Comment below with a link 🙂

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

    • I’m at about 120-130k now, been pretty stable despite the declines in market due to some contributions made recently. I would say that to yield 10,000 yearly in a safe way, you should calculate about 10,000/Avg yield (3-4%) so around 250-330 k
      My ridiculous FTN position is the one lifting my yield up this dramatically. not recommended though.


    • Haha yeah not too nice! It’s definitely something you need to accept when investing in FTN. Dividend are NOT guaranteed and price can be very volatile. I’m ok with no dividends from their part for a few months even a few years (most likely the case.) Since their dividend yield is about 30% now for A shares AND I feel like it’s been exagerated, I might actually buy some in my new acount for the long run 🙂 It just needs to pay one year out of the next 5 and I’ll yield 6% ;P
