My February Dividend Income Summary

Like all Dividend Investors, I love seeing those dividends rolling in my account. It does indeed seem like money is working for you instead of you working for money.

I love dividends, but I wouldn't be confortable cashing them if I knew the company was doing badly.

Basically, I don't need dividends at all cost. But I need the company that pays them to be solid, even if their stock price is a little expensive. (Hence why I bought Atco -- ACO.X)

So, as you can see on my Dividends and Royalties page, February is below my average Dividend paying month of roughly 243 $.

Last month (February) I managed to collect 110.63$.

My Dividends came from:

  • RBC - Royal Bank of Canada (RY) : 78.54$ (They had a dividend increase!)
  • REIT Cominar (CUF.UN) : 14.70$
  • Verizon : 17.39$ (in Canadian Dollars)

My total Dividend paid for 2015 : 236.53$

My Total Dividend paid since I started Dividend Investing : 9820,66$ + 110.63$ = 9 931.19$
I also received 203.60$ from the Canada Council for the Arts and their Public Lending Right Program for a book I wrote. (I should write another one)

What do you think of my dividend income stream?

  2. Hey thanks R2R. It's not much this month, but eh!, you take 'em as they come in, right? Catch you on the flip side.

  3. Each month can't be above average! Some will be below, and some above, the key is that long-term each are increasing. You'll pass the $10k mark next month of dividends received since you started investing, and that is pretty big news. Keep up the good work!

  4. Words of wisdom. Yeah, I guess 10K$ is a nice "plateau". Time flies... ;-)
