The month of October 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.
The month of October was a roller coaster in the financial markets as the price of a barrel of crude drop a lot. The major drop in the price of oil has been linked to the Ebola epidemic and the issues going on in Iraq. If an investor was able to follow the markets as they were open during the day could of took advantage of the pullbacks in certain sectors.
- Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS) - $7.67
- Bell Canada Enterprises (BCE) - $61.75
- Killam Properties (KMP) - $5.75
- Shaw Communications (SJR.B) - $18.33
- Enerplus (ERF) -$ 45.63
- Roger's Communications (RCI.B) - $45.75
- Killam Properties (KMP) - $ 14.25
- Dundee REIT (D.UN) - $ 16.61
- Cominar REIT (C.UN) - $5.39
- Boston Pizza Royalties Fund (BPF.UN) - $23.87
- Claymore 1-5 yr Laddered Corporate Bond ETF (CBO) - $0.91
This total represents a 23.77% increase from 3 months ago and 7.155% increase year over year. The increase over 3 months is due to my recent position in Roger's Communications Class B stock. This has replaced roughly my monthly dividend in Just Energy which is around the same amount prior to Just Energy switching to a quarterly dividend and a smaller annual rate. The small increase from 12 months ago is due mostly to Just Energy and its dividend as explained here. Some stocks have increased dividends payments due to DRIP also.
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 $875.47 in distributions so far on this trade.
I will update my dividend income tab with the new amount.
