Portfolio Update: December 22nd 2014

    I realized its been a little while since my last Portfolio Update at the start of November, and there have been some changes to it since then. As I mentioned in my last Recent Buy post, I sold my small position in iShares 1-5year laddered Government of Canada Bond ETF to bolster my purchase of 28 shares of RioCan REIT. Which keeps my total number of positions in the portfolio at 13, and also boosted my overall dividend income by $32.40.

    The overall value of my portfolio has grown by only .85% since November 3rd when I last posted an update. Since that update I had added about $550 in capital, so the growth is mainly due to added cash to the portfolio since the market price of many of the stocks have gone down since that time, although they have been going back up again recently. So far all the stocks that I hold have not had their dividend cut yet, particularly Suncor and Veresen may be at risk of this due to their heavy involvement in the Oil industry. However, I do not think that Suncor will cut its dividend as it has a very solid balance sheet and cash to keep its relatively low dividend payout going. And Veresen, like Pembina Pipeline is more heavily invested in infrastructure that supports the industry itself, so as long as production of oil producers keeps up their income should be ok(to my understanding).

   Hopefully everyone else is weathering the recent volatility storm without too much stress. Just let those dividend payouts help keep you warm this winter :)

edit(Dec23): Portfolio jumped 2.72% today, VSN up 14.66% to close at $18.22. New value portfolio value=12,225.86  :)

  1. Dividend Wisp,

    Nice to see that your portfolio increased throughout the month of November and December with the recent drop in oil price, speaks volumes of your portfolio diversification. Looking forward to see how you make out throughout 2015.
