Monthly Dividend Update

Let’s get right to it.  I’m a little late with this post, our entire house (except for the wife) has been sick for the last week.

Personal Highlights for February:

  • Attended a fine and rare bourbon tasting, and also a bourbon lottery this month.  I was able to snag a bottle of Weller C.Y.P.B.  This was one of my favourites that I had tried at the tasting.
  • Aside from being sick – the kids have been doing great.  Isaac is saying a lot more words (when Holland lets him speak).
  • Attended a couple of Jets games with some friends I hadn’t seen in quite some time.
  • Finally got all my receipts so I can do my taxes this week.
  • Took the wife to see Justin Timberlake when he was in town.  She loved it.
  • Amber and I finished watching the Wire – and now I have her watching DeadWood.  (2 of my all time favorite shows).  I figure it’s time she watched them.

Financial Highlights for February:

  • Continued bi weekly payments into spousal RRSP  (30 units of US Equity Index Fund)
  • I was paid by 5 companies and 1 funds.  I Dripped 19 new shares/units.
  • Portfolio hit an all time high
  • Opened a position in Transcontinental (which has since increased their dividend)
  • Increased position in Western Forest

Portfolio Update:

This month had some good news and some bad news.

The bad news:  My dividend income was the lowest amount since November 2017.  Dividends actually decreased by $4.66 compared to last February. This is the first time I’ve seen a dip in dividends year over year.  This is due to Artis slashing their dividend in half.

The good news: My portfolio hit an all time high.  After recovering by 6.58% in January, my portfolio jumped up another 5.17% in February which pushed it to a new record high of: $324,377.53

Next months income should be a lot better, as Power Corp, Intertape Polymer & Western Forest all pay their dividends in March – along with all the regular monthly payers.

Thanks for reading, Cheers!
