Dividend Update - Nov 2014


 The month of November 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 November was another roller coaster in the financial markets as the price of a barrel of crude continues to drop. With investors waiting for the outcome of the OPEC meeting towards the end of October, the prices of stocks in the energy sector continued to fall.  OPEC decided to not cut production even though we are producing  2 million extra barrels a day.  With the increase supply and less demand, the price of a barrel of crude oil is likely to float between $55 and $75 a barrel.

Non-registered Account
  • Emera (EMA) - $38.75
  • Killam Properties (KMP)  - $5.75
  • Shaw Communications (SJR.B)    - $18.33
  • Enerplus (ERF)  -$ 45.63 
  • Killam Properties (KMP) - $  14.30
  • 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) - $0.92 
Total = $169.55

This total represents a 2.219% increase from 3 months ago and 16.49% decrease  year over year.  The increase over 3 months is due to my recent position in iShares Corporate Laddered Bond ETF, CBO, and an dividend increase. One of my positions, TD, paid a dividend this month but my purchase came after the ex-dividend date.

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 $931.47 in distributions so far on this trade.

I will update my dividend income tab with the new amount. It is great to see money from passive income sources deposited into my brokerage account every single month.

  1. Thanks for sharing yoru recent dividend income update with us. Passive income is always great no matter the amount. Just keep adding to your portfolio, reinvest all dividends and watch the compounding take effect. Look forward to your next update.

    1. DivHut,

      That is right. Always great to see the money show up in the brokerage account on a monthly or quarterly basis with little to no physical work.

  2. Great job man :) Not a bad month if you consider the income from the swing trade. The important thing is that you're making more in dividends every year. By the way I'm currently using Shaw for my internet service. I'm paying you money every month haha. :P

    1. Liquid,

      Glad to have you as a customer of SHAW!! I was already a shareholder in SHAW before I moved out West. Now I am a shareholder and a customer :). It is nice to see the dividends rise every year. Nothing to complain about there, thats for sure.

  3. Looking good, IP. Congrats on another great month. Keep it up!


    1. R2R,

      Thanks for dropping by. Looking forward to the end total for this month. I believe this should be my biggest month ever for dividend income so far.
