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 discount when I opened my locked in retirement account (LIRA). I added more than one company for the payout in February, May, August, November (FMAN) so the February 2019 dividend total should beat November 2018 by a couple hundred dollars.
NWH.UN - $33.00
PEY.TO - $19.12
Total - $52.12
Some of the companies I bought more of include the banking, energy and real estate sectors and I added a few positions that are US stocks because my portfolio is very home country biased/weighted. Most of the companies I bought, I was able to buy at a discount to my original purchases. I paid more for TD bank then the original price when I bought in 2015 but I do feel that the big 5 Canadian banks (BNS, TD, BMO, RY, CIBC) are going to have a great year. Here are the holdings for my new account;
I am excited for 2019 because I've set a few goals that I just wrote about, check my goals out here.
