November 2014 Dividend Update!

    November has been a busy month for me, yet it felt like a long one as well. Now that December is about to begin I'm sure that the month will go by very fast as its Christmas time, which means lots of shopping and running around! However its nice to know that dividends will be landing in my account in a nice, consistent and orderly fashion that requires no effort on my part.

    This month brought in a nice amount of income, primarily through my monthly payers though. My total dividend income was $37.59, quite a bit less than last months record of $63.54, but then again October had the majority of my portfolio paying out that month. Although it is a slight increase 14cents from the previous comparable month.
    I managed to reinvest most of my dividends this month on my recent purchase of RioCan REIT, and a single share of the ETF ZDV with the remainder of the cash in my brokerage account. Those two buys will help to increase my December income by a bit as well, so looking forward to that as a little early Christmas present to myself :)

    So far, my income base is primarily supported through monthly paying stocks are you can see from D.UN, VSN, PZA, PPL, ZDV and starting next month REI.UN. These companies support my new purchases and passive income growth through their ~$32 in payments every single month. And I am very appreciative of what they are helping me to do, which is slowly build up a second income stream. Each new purchase is like giving myself a little pay raise. In the coming year I am looking forward to seeing some of these companies announce dividend raises of their own.

How was your November for passive income? Did it grow from more shares or dividend raises?


  1. Thanks for sharing your recent dividend income with us. Just under $40 is not bad. Just think about what that dividend income can cover for your November expense. One tank of gas? Cel phone bill? Curious to see your YOY growth. I think you'll be amazed. Look forward to your next update. Happy to see RY in your list as I have been buying Canadian bank stocks the past few months.

    1. Yeah, certainly not bad :) And the $40 in dividends could cover a few things to be sure if I weren't reinvesting them. I'm looking forward to doing a year over year report in December. The numbers should be awesome considering I barely had any investments till mid summer/end of the year. 2015 will be the real year to see a comparison against this years. Thanks for stopping by.

  2. DW,

    Great month!

    That's more than $30 you didn't have to work for. Keep the fresh capital pumping and those totals will keep climbing! :)

    Best regards.

  3. Congrats on the dividend income, DW. Thats $37 you didnt have to work for and will keep snowballing over the years.

    Keep it up

    1. Thanks! It is pretty nice to know that much will be landing in my brokerage account. Especially when it starts factoring into, and reducing the amount of cash I need to deposit into it to make a trade :) Just dreaming of the day where dividends alone can be enough to make a full trade on their own. Or get withdrawn to pay for a jet-ski ;)
