Dividend Update - July 2016

      The month of July 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 markets continue to go higher in the month of July.  On the flip side, the price of a barrel of WTI Crude Oil fell below $40 dollars a few times.  With the price of oil near $40 dollars, this will continue to have a major effect on economies that are dependent on oil. 

      One thing for sure, is that I was paid dividends and distributions for being a shareholder or unit holder in  various companies or funds.

 Non-registered Account

  • Bell Canada Enterprises - (BCE) - $68.25
  • Enerplus (ERF)  -$ 5.58
  • Bank Of Nova Scotia (BNS)  - $22.93
  • Bank Of Nov Scotia  (BNS) - $14.40
  • Rogers Communications Class B (RCI.B) - $96.00
  • Shaw Communications (SJR.B)    - $19.75

  • Boston Pizza  Royalties Fund (BPF.UN)   - $26.91
  • Claymore 1-5 yr Laddered Corporate Bond ETF (CBO)  - $0.68
  • Cominar REIT (CUF.UN ) - $5.39
  • Dream Office REIT   (D.UN)  - $ 17.50
  • Killam Properties REIT (KMP.UN) - $  15.10
  • Horizons Natural Gas Yield ETF - $3.08
  • Transforce (TFI) - $8.50

Total = $304.07

        This total represents a 4.60% decrease from 3 months ago and 0.566% decrease year over year.
      I also received another distribution payment of $37.50 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 $1958.97 in distributions so far on this trade.  Dream REIT has reduced the amount of distribution they pay monthly which was announced in February.

     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.

How was your dividend income for July?

  1. Over $300 is great! Keep it up. My July was a little lower than I would like as well. Those 1-4-7-10 months don't have as many companies paying for me currently. Onwards!

    1. PID,

      Thanks for dropping by. I will definitely take over $300 a month without working.

  2. Great results. Congrats on capturing a good amount of dividends in July.

    1. Investing Hunting,

      I would gladly take any dividends paid to me. That is over $300 dollars paid to me without having to get up and go to work. Money works 24/7 and doesn't call in sick.
