Portfolio Update: January 1st, 2016

    It is the beginning of the new year and so here is an updated snapshot of my portfolio as of January 1st, 2016. 2015 was a rough year for the TSX and my portfolios stocks for the most part ended down for the year. However, I have made great progress in growing my dividend income, and buying addition shares in my positions at lower prices.

$27,950.90
$1,671.31

    At the end of last year, December 22 2014 my portfolio had a market value of $11,870.49 which was basically at its break even point. At that time my projected yearly dividends stood at $608.63 and I received $344.76 in dividends that year.

    Since then I have grown my portfolio by about $16,080 and projected yearly dividends by about $1,063! And in 2015 I received a total of $1,229.69 in dividend income!

    So, even though January 2016 has already started off a bit roughly since the putting together of this update, I am looking forward to an interesting year of buying opportunities and hopefully some stock price appreciation. Either way, I intend to continue building up my dividend income stream, as well as holding onto all my positions unless an actionable event takes place.
