Dividend Update - Mar 2014

 The month of March 2014 is another month of increasing dividend income. This money is used to help pay my expenses if it is needed. If the money is not needed it is ALL used to purchase new investments to further increase my cash flow.

Non-registered Account
  • Killam Properties (KMP)  - $5.75
  • Shaw Communications (SJR.B)    - $18.33
  • Just Energy (JE) - $47.88
  • Enerplus (ERF)  -$ 45.36
  • Tim Horton's - $  32.00
  • Enbridge (ENB) -  $11.55
  • Killam Properties (KMP) - $  14.00
  • Dundee REIT   (D.UN)  - $ 16.61
  • Cominar REIT (C.UN) - $5.28
  • Boston Pizza  Royalties Fund (BPF.UN)   - $23.87
  • Enbridge (ENB) -  $2.39
Total = $223.02

This total represents a 20.42% increase from 3 months ago and 72.76%  year over year. The large percentage increase is due mostly to dividend from Tim Horton's, which I bought a just a few months ago.

I also received another distribution payment of $56.00 for my swing trade in Dundee REIT in my non-registered account. This is not listed above since it is a trade, so I keep the money in the account and do not pay myself first with this payment. I have received $483.47 in distributions so far on this trade.

I will update my dividend income tab with the new amount.

  1. Pretty awesome that your first quarter of the year kicked out almost $700 of income. Should be great to see that number rise as the year ticks by. Looking forward to following along.

    1. Writing2reality,

      It definitely is awesome to have $700 income coming in. Just a few years ago, in 2010, I had no income coming in from the markets. In my article, I talk about income from a trade that I do not count and the reason why. If I counted this income, I would be over $700 for the quarter.

  2. Great work I.P. I second W2R's comment above. Plus, with growth like you're will be achieving FI in no time.

  3. Income Surfer,

    Some of my positions pay high yield, which usually lower dividend growth. These positions provide an income boost while the low yield high growth players like BNS and ENB raise there dividends and will eventually pass them in terms of yield on cost.
