Dividend Income & Portfolio Update

Personal Highlights – July 2021

  • Things are slowly opening up here in Winnipeg.  Masks are no longer required in most places – restrictions on gatherings have been lifted and case counts are way down.  I’ve been to a couple of restaurants for the first time in what seems like a decade, and have been able to see a few people in person again- it feels good – but also still feels weird. 
  • It’s been a hell of a month for Canadian Soccer.  The women just won gold at the olympics and the men just about took Mexico to extra time in the Gold Cup Semi Final.  I am beyond excited for the upcoming World Cup Qualifying games in September.
  • We had our first little harvest from our garden (and by “we” I of course mean Amber):

  • With things opening up a bit more we took the kids out to a couple of restaurants and also made it to the zoo!  There is a farm/petting zoo just north of our cabin we are hoping to make it to this month while we are on holidays too.  Wife & Kids at the zoo (animatronic dinosaurs):
  • We’ve been doing homemade pizza night about once a month lately – and honestly….it’s damn good.  My favorite so far is spicy sausage, corn, spinach, peppers and garlic (pictured below):

Financial Highlights for July:

  • Lots of positive news on the earnings front.  CAE reported strong results, Intertape Polymer had great results PLUS a dividend increase, GoEasy continues to kill it, and Western Forest & New Flyer were both positive too.
  • Added 100 shares of Manulife to TFSA
  • Sold entire position of Plaza Reit to purchase RBNK
  • Spousal RRSP which was opened about 3 years ago cracked $40,000 for first time!
  • Still sitting on about 20% cash in my RRSP.
  • Got dividends from 14 companies and 2 funds.  Dripped an additional 52 shares/units.
  • Greenlane Renewables has had a nice run this week – earnings are tomorrow so very interested to see how they look & if they will be profitable.
  • Another all time portfolio high. It is unbelievable how fast things start to compound once your portfolio gets to a certain size (and the market continues to roll).  My portfolio increase by over 33,000 month over month!
  • First time receiving over $500 in tax free dividends in a month!
