Dividend Income Update - August 2018

        The month of August 2018 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.

    I received a total of $262.74 in dividend income for the month of August 2018.  This represents a 0.440%  increase from 3 months ago and 15.2%  decrease year over year.  

    I received $56.10 from option premiums within my investment accounts in August 2018.

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

  1. nice Pursuit!

    we share a couple of the same names.

    keep it up

    1. Passivecanadian,

      I took a big step backwards selling D.UN to get rid of the interest I pay on margin. We will likely see the bank of Canada raise the interest rate this week.

      Going forward, I take some small steps and chose some better dividend payers. Stocks like T.TO, RY.TO, BNS.TO, BEP.UN.TO, QSR.TO, TD.TO, EMA.TO are some of the stocks I looking at adding to existing positions and or starting positions.

  2. Nice month, IP! Although we don't share any of the same names, you certainly have a very solid, diversified portfolio.

    1. Kody,

      Thanks for dropping by. The portfolio has some diversification, but need concentrate on some better positions going forward.

  3. Great month. a 15percent increase is awesome. looks like you have 1 candaian bank and they are pretty good stocks. Keep it up.

    1. Dividendsandhobbies,

      Thanks for dropping by. I currently own 3 of the big 5 Canadian banks. Besides BMO, I own Bank of Nova Scotia and CIBC bank.

      The Canadian banks are great investments to own.
