Today is June 27, 2020. Although passive income through dividends and option premiums is my focus when it comes to investing, I decide to do a post about my current net worth.
What is net worth? Simply put, net worth is calculated by adding up all assets and subtracting the total of all liabilities. Net worth is sometimes referred to as shareholder's equity. Assets and liabilities are part of the balance sheet.
The savings section is broken into 3 segments. This is a taxable high interest savings account,
a TFSA savings accounts and combination stock investment and ETF investment. The TFSA savings account has been removed due to low interest rate after the decrease in the interest rate by the Bank of Canada. Bank of Canada is basically Canada's version of the federal reserve.
The taxable high interest savings acount, in which the interest rate is laughable, was with Tangerine. It currently at 0.4%, which is down from 1.1% from about 7 months ago. I switched to EQ Bank due to it having a 2.45% interest on their savings account at that time.
The TFSA savings account was also with Tangerine. I was frustrated with getting such a low interest rate with Tangerine. I took the money out and placed it in non-registered high interest rate savings account with EQ Bank. Unfortunately, the account did not disappear as interest was earned in the TFSA with Tangerine for the month I transferred the balance. The balance is $0.18. With a value this low, I do not even earn interest as the balance so low.
On June 27, 2020, the value of the savings account is $2024.39. As of the time of this writing, the interest rate for EQ Bank is currently sitting at 2.00%. The interest rate was reduced prior several months back as the Bank of Canada slashed interest rates due to the COVID19 pandemic. I suspect EQ Bank may reduce their interest rate in the very near future.
The stock and ETF investment involves a stock and an ETF that I hold within my margin account. I keep the dividends and distributions received separate from the dividends I post in my dividend income updates.
The stock is Inter Pipeline. The ticker symbol is IPL and trades on the Toronto Stock Exchange. I own 42 shares with an adjusted cost base of $901.80. I received a total of $69.25 in dividends since initiating this position.
I purchased an additional 14 units of BMO High Yield Covered Call ETF at a total cost of $203.32. The ticker symbol is ZWC and trades on the Toronto Stock Exchange. My brokerage has zero commissions on purchase of ETFs. There is a small ECN fee which is a few pennies. The purchase of these units resulted in $0.05 in ECN fees. This ETF pays monthly. I received a total of $6.16 in total distributions as of June 27.
On June 27 , the current value of this "stock / ETF account" is $924.21.
Overall, the savings total is $2948.60.
The non-registered accounts consist of a margin account and 2 stocks held directly with the transfer agents. The margin account is with Questrade. The total value is $72115.38 as of June 27, 2020. This is an increase of 10.15% since the last published net worth post.
TFSA Investing Account
The TFSA investing account balance is $33381.31 as of June 27, 2020. This account is with Questrade. This is an increase of 14.9% since the last published net worth post.
The trading account is with Questrade. I currently still have the trade on in Mullen Group. The ticker symbol for Mullen Group is MTL, and it trades on the Toronto Stock Exchange. The stock price has increased over the past month or so, as the economy As of March 28, the value of this account is $2827.23.
I purchased 400 shares of Shaw Communications (SJR.B.TO) and wrote covered calls on that positions. The covered call premiums and the dividends collected were used to buy a Global ex-Canada ETF as it was commission free. This ETF is XAW and is traded on the Toronto Stock Exchange.
The covered call option was assigned this month. So, what did I decided on for the immediate future. I purchased 400 shares of Shaw Communications and looking to sell covered calls, which is just like last time.
The value of this account as June 27 is $12446.93.
