The month of June 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 price of a barrel of crude oil is still a major focus of the markets and the economy. There is a more pressing issue in the markets which is the situation in Greece. The markets dropped a lot the day Greece banks shut down was announced. There was triple digit decline on the TSX in Canada.

This total represents a 3.763% decrease from 3 months ago and 4.410% increase year over year. For the 3 month decrease, Enerplus cut their dividend starting at the April payment by 0.04 per share a month. My dividend in Canadian National Railway (CNR) was on 25 shares only. When I averaged down to purchase 13 more shares, it was after the dividend record date.
On June 1, I sold a put option in Roger's Communications Class B stock for a premium of $16.05 after commissions. This option was assigned on June 19 as the price of RCI.B was below the strike price at expiration.
I also received another distribution payment of $56.00 for my swing trade in Dream Office 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 $1323.47 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.
