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.
- 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
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.
