October Dividends & Happy Halloween.

Dividend Income & Portfolio Update

Personal Highlights – October 2021

  • The year is flying by – I cannot believe it’s November already.  October was busy…
    – Did our annual dynasty hockey draft. I am currently sitting in 1st place (thanks Mcdavid)
    – Watched Canada play a couple World Cup Qualifying games – they continue to look good and are currently sitting in a good spot going into the next window.
    – Went to my first concert since the pandemic started.  I saw Propagandhi (which was also the last band I saw pre covid)!
    – Went to a couple Thanksgiving dinner/events and hosted a small dinner at our place.
    – My soccer season started – I lasted a game and a half before pulling my calf…so not sure how long I’ll be out of commission for:(
    – Took the kids trick or treating – they had a blast – and have spent every day since going through, organizing and trading candy with each other.

    The kids & wife have both been sick for the last couple of weeks.  They got covid tested, and luckily they came back negative.  

  • Bruno (the new dog) continues to get used to us, and continues to grow like crazy.  He just turned 5 months and is already 50 pounds.
    Great Pyranees

Financial Highlights for October:

  • I didn’t make any stock purchases in October – but continued bi-weekly contributions to TFSA & Spousal RRSP.
  • Still sitting on about 20% cash in my RRSP.
  • 4.7% dividend increase for Diversified Royalty!
  • Got dividends from 13 companies and 1 funds.  Dripped an additional 52 shares/units.
  • Since January 1st of 2021, I have received $9752.69 in dividends.  30.1% of that income is completley tax free.  My goal is to get that % higher as I continue to work towards maxing out the TFSA’s. 
  • My portfolio has lots of exciting earnings coming up this month including: Artis Reit, Western Forest, Greenlane Renewables, GoEasy, New Flyer & Manulife!
