*** Modified: April 2016 Dividend Income Summary : $CP $CUF.UN $MDLZ $KHC $ATD.B $BCE $BNS $PWF $VZ

Hey Personal Financial Freaks! This is my fourth Dividend Income Summary for 2016. 

As you can see on my Passive Income page, 9 companies chipped in for this month.  

In April, I managed to collect 313.70$. Not a great amount, but not too shabby either

The amounts are all in Canadian dollars. 

My Dividends came from:

                REIT Cominar (CUF.UN) : 24.62$ (which I use in part to buy one more unit @ 17.20 with my DRIP);

                Canadian Pacific (CP) : 17.50$ (CP has become a top holding for me due to the rise of the stock over the past 5 years. Thanks to Bill Ackman and Hunter Harrison. They recently just raised their dividend after a 2-3 years interruption. It's a keeper.) 

                Mondelez (MDLZ) : 23.05$ (MDLZ's price stock has grown quite a bit. But not the dividend. Will see how it goes. Could be a potential buy like Kraft).

                Kraft Heinz (KHC) : 31.98$ (Mature stock. Now in the hands of Warren Buffet. Buy and hold like the master and see how it does in 20 years)

                Alimentation Couche-Tard (ATD.B) : 8.10$ (Not a dividend player just yet. But wait and see. Remember, you read it here first!).

                BCE (BCE): 27.30$. (Year after year, BCE show strong results and hike its dividend. What's not to like? I wish I had some more.)

                Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS) : 108$ (Yes, that's mighty impressive! BNS is now a top holding. I used this money in part to buy one more share@ 65$ with my DRIP)

                Power Financial (PWF) : 39.25$ (PWF is such a diversified stock : insurance, financials, name it. One of the cheapest stocks, most conservatively and well-managed company out there. What are you waiting for?).

                TransCanada Corp (TRP) : 33.90$ (I don't own TRP anymore. I still think it's a great stock but between TRP and ENB I had the latter with a slight advantage. Hence TRP not making the cut no more. Remember, I don't want to hold more than 20 individual stocks!)

My total Dividend paid for 2016 :  250.47$ + 256.52$+531.59$+313.70$  = 1352.28$

Total Dividend paid since I started Investing : 17 680.52$+313.70$ = 17 994.22$

What do you think of my dividend income stream?


  1. Wow an other nice month. Congrats on getting money without working for it :)

    Thanks for sharing

  2. Thanks FT : yeah, this is free money coming in. Working hard to get that ball bigger and rolling. ;-)

  3. Excellent mois Mr.Div!

    Continue le bon travail!

  4. Merci Steph! Je viens de voir que $PWF et $VZ avaient payé leur dividende le dernier jour d'avril. Bref, c'est encore mieux que prévu! ;)

  5. Is your total since you started investing good? It seems you add up the year total in every monthly update

  6. Hey Julio, I think it's good. I would have to double check though if I didn't punch a number twice. All in all, it's not very important. It just gives an idea of total amount so far. Thanks for pointing it out though. ;)

  7. After examining the numbers, you were right. I was adding the wrong numbers! Geez whiz I'm impressed by you guys. Sometimes I have the feeling I'm doing this but no one actually cares. Thanks Julio for reminding me that people do care. ;)

  8. Great job MD. You're doing awesome bud. Don't stop and keep it up. Thank you for sharing with us and I'm happy to be travelling this journey with you my friend. Take care.

  9. Hey DH, thanks for the kind message. You are way ahead of us and serve as an inspiration! ;) We will succeed!

  10. Nice income report!
    $313.70 is not too shabby at all. That could cover the cost of a few bills. Also a big fan of some of the stocks you're holding: BNS, BCE, CUF.UN, CP....pretty much all of them actually. Nice job!

  11. Hey Graham! Thanks for the nice comment. I appreciate. I do like my stock picks too -- I didn't like some of them a couple of months ago. But since my purge I like them all! ;)

  12. I think earning over $300 in a month passively is a very respectable number. Nice list of companies too. Always nice to see some Canadian banks in the mix as well. I still like them these days even though they have bounced back quite a bit more their recent lows. Thanks for sharing.

  13. Thanks DivHut : yeah, 300$ isn't a bad number at all. Thanks for visiting man. ;-)


Thanks a lot for your comment.
