Dividend Income - September 2014


 The month of September 2014 is another month of  dividend income landing in my accounts. 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)    - $18.33
  • Enerplus (ERF)  -$ 45.63
  • Just Energy (JE) - $86.38 
  •  Tim Horton's (THI) 's $32.00
  • Enbridge (ENB) - $2.43
  • Killam Properties (KMP) - $  14.20
  • Dundee REIT   (D.UN)  - $ 16.61
  • Cominar REIT (C.UN) - $5.39
  • Boston Pizza  Royalties Fund (BPF.UN)   - $23.87
  • Enbridge (ENB) - $11.55
  • Claymore 1-5 yr Laddered Corporate Bond ETF  (CBO) - $0.73 
Total = $262.87

This total represents a 17.69% increase from 3 months ago and 48.05% increase  year over year.  Just Energy used to pay a monthly dividend.  It was since reduced the dividend and switched to a quarterly dividend.  This past month of September was the first time they paid there dividend quarterly.  Some of my stocks I DRIP, so these companies paid slightly larger amount of dividends than before.

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 $819.47 in distributions so far on this trade.

Another form of income I received was in the form of option premiums.  I sold put options in Rogers Communications Class B stock and TD Bank.  The net premium paid from these two put options is  $130.10.

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

  1. Pretty solid month of dividends and a really impressive year over year growth. If only we could all see almost 50% each year! We'd be FI long before we know it!

    1. Writing2reality,

      The growth of 3 months ago and from last year was due to I didn't own THI a year ago and the amount of JE dividend. If JE still paid a monthly dividend, then the number would be lower as they reduced their dividend recently and switch to quarterly. If JE never cuts its dividend, which was 40% cut, then my number would be even higher.

  2. Very solid month. 48.05% increase year over year shows a very impressive growth. Keep up the good work!

      The growth in the amount was helped by a quarterly dividend in Just Energy being paid instead of being paid monthly like it use to be. Tim Horton's dividend helped also. I wished I still owned Tim Horton's but do not feel comfortable with the take over by Burger.

      That being said, still nice to see the number increase

  4. Wow! Even given the situation with JE, that's some impressive growth! Hope you see that rate for a few more years! Sucks about THI. I'm with you, I'm worried about how BK will affect them. I live in Wisconsin, so we have a few around here. Always a great place to go. If they try to make the quality more of BK's level, they'll kill the company. Hopefully they'll leave THI alone and just collect the profit.
