Big dividend month to end a big dividend year. My totals for December 2018 were $884.25. Have yet to break $1000 but I am expecting to next month with my new retirement account in full swing. With my three accounts almost fully committed to dividend investing, I am excited to hit the $1000 dollars a month in dividend payment, I'm hoping by the end of the year (I own a few growth companies that do not currently pay a dividend)....

       2018 has come to an end and we finished off the year with decent dividend income. For the month of December I made $492.35 in dividend income, which was reinvested through our DRIP collecting me another 33 shares for the month. The market has taken a major downturn over the last few months, which has provided a wonderful buying opportunity for us. In November I scoope...

December 16, 2018

When I turned on my computer tonight to write about my November dividends, I hesitated, contemplating if I wanted to, or should even write about them at all. Why? Honestly, because at first thought, I was embarrassed. November was nothing to go boasting about, at only $136.36 of dividend income. But then I thought about it, thought about why we started doing this blog in the first place, and it has nothing to do with "boasting...

Although November is typically a slow month for dividend payments, November 2018 is one to remember. I received the payout from my pension and began to put it to work. The timing worked out perfectly as the market has experienced quite the bear run since September, but really hit a rocky patch in late October. Although my dividend payments were only $52.12 I was able to increase my position in multiple owned companies at a dis...

As October has come and gone, I sit here writing about another month of dividend income. This was a record breaking month for both Jesse and myself. When me and Jesse started this investing journey we made a goal to reach $1000.00 of dividend income in one month, by the July of 2020. This October I hit $944.04!!!! Not yet at that $1000 mark, but I couldn't be more excited about this month. We have dedicated ourselves to our di...

November 29, 2018

Already at October, what a year 2018 has been and how fast has it flown by. The month of October was another good one, setting a new record for monthly dividends. The month of October brought in $783.15. My DRIP brought in a whopping 72 shares of companies I already own. I decided to add a calculation into this monthly dividend update that calculates the new income that my shares will add come January. (Companies typically pay...

September is always an exciting month, summer is coming to an end and we see the beginning of fall. Also, school is back in and of course September is a great month for dividends! 9/12 months down on the year and so far, so good. September 2018 I made $351.44. My accounts DRIP (direct re-investment plan) was working very well and I added 21 new shares of 6 companies. My 2018 total dividends for the first 9 months is a whopping...

September is another one of my higher months, collecting dividends from nine of my companies. I collected 16 new shares from our DRIP strategy, and also bought a few shares on my own. I scooped up 315 more shares of Canwel (CWX.TO), which we calculated to be undervalued. CanWel Building Materials Group Ltd is a Canada-based wholesale distributor of building materials and home renovation products, and provider of wood pressure...

August has come and gone and nothing to interesting in terms of our portfolios happened. August is a slow month without much dividend action. In the month of august I collected $133.87 of dividend income. A lower month, but with my 2018 total dividend income so far sitting at $4,128.47 I am feeling pretty good.

SOT.UN - $84.13

NWH.UN - $32.53 

PEY.TO - $18.96

Total - $135.63

Back to the slow month.... I have added  new business' to my portfolio but one thing that really makes no difference is when the dividends get paid out. As it stands right now, I have 3 companies that pay dividends monthly and 0 companies that pay dividends in the months of February, May, August and November. My monthly average is still high and the other 8 months of the year certainly make a huge difference. Now without furth...
