My September Dividend Income Summary: $CNR $JNJ $POW $SU.TO $FTS $ENB $VIU $VCN $VSB $CUF.UN $ATD.B $ACO.X

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

As you can see on my Passive Income page, 12 companies chipped in for this month of September. 

I'm not a fan of fall -- especially with all the crap publicity surrounding the "back to school" propaganda. I say to this : chill out! 

What's the big deal? Holidays are over, we are all going back to work or to school. It's already depressing. Do we really need to be reminded as early as July? NO!

After all, unless we chucked out all or clothes or pencils during summer, there's a frickin' good chance we are ready to go back to what we were doing a couple of weeks ago : that is going to work or school dressed and with some papers and pencils!

Maybe if I held some Walmart  (WMT) of Group Jean Coutu (PJC.A) stocks I would be happier to go through this nonsense. Just wait till' they get the X-MAS tree ready... 

I might also be a little misanthropist; that is why most people get on my nerves (not you!). Or is it because Mr. Market has been so frickin' high for so long... None of my stocks are cheap. Well, except for POW and PWF, but I have enough of both for now. 

It seems I can't buy anything with the necessary margin of security. Go back to reading Benjamin Graham is you do not know what I am talking about. (go!

And so I wait. and I wait... (so much for my dividend goal of 5 400$/year in 2016)...But eh, I'm piling up some cash that I will be able to deploy eventually. Check out my Fix Income Graphic here.

Anyway, back to my Dividend Income post...that's why you are here, no?

September was a great month dividendwise. It always is when my king of kings chips in. (Hello JNJ!)

What do you think of my dividend income stream? Do you like autumn (who cares really?)? And are you too planing on selling all of your assets on the Market?


  1. Those are great dividend income totals! Congratulations!

    Keep up the good work and don't let autumn get you down too much...

    FerdiS, DivGro

  2. Hey Ferdis! thanks a bunch for the kind words... ha ha ha I won't let autumn get the best of me. Promise! ;-)

  3. Not selling. That is an awesome month and an awesome amount of dividends collected.

    1. That's the spirit! Thanks DandH for the nice comment. I sure is pretty good. ;-)

  4. Looks like you had an amazing month, almost doubling your monthly average for the year. I know what you mean about the difficulty of finding good deals. It's been crazy for a while. I just tell myself that it averages out if you buy during high and low times -- maybe Mr Graham wouldn't agree with me ;)

    Keep up the good work bud!!

  5. Hey André! It must be true. Although you lose that very important margin of security. Yes you will gain a few quarters of dividends but I much prefer to wait for at least a 10%% dip before making a move. Thanks for the good words. ;-)

  6. Hey I LOVE fall, but to each their own :)

    Looks like you had a great month, so congrats! Nah we're not selling anything despite all the talk about a pending bear market. Buy and hold, that's the plan. If there's a big crash well we'll just buy more!

    1. Hey MrSLM! I also love fall. But I would rather love it if it wasn't followed by winter. We go right back to summer.

      Exactly. That's the spirit. If it craches will buy some more and keep on cashing in the dividends. ;-)

    2. Oh yeah winter in Montreal can f**k right off :P I don't mind the lead up in December with xmas, holiday spirit and all that. But January -> April just sucks so bad.

    3. Totally agree with you. So you are from my neck of the woods. Just went visiting your blog and bookmarked it. You have a really nice portfolio and we share a lot of positions. Congrats!

  7. You've collected a pretty incredible sum for the month of September considering it was only 12 companies paying you. For now, I am steady as she goes and have zero plans to sell any stock. In fact, I'm continuing to buy as I always have at least once every single month. Thanks for sharing.

  8. Hey Div Hut! 12 companies paying for a month is a lot. But I understand what you mean. My portfolio doesn't have a lot of names in it... I try to keep it to below 20. Otherwise I find it hard to follow. Even then...

    I think your strategy is sound if you are in it for the long haul. I'm too. But I refrain from buying these days waiting for a correction to do so. Call it Market timing if you will I just need that margin of security to feel I'm doing the right thing. But I won't be selling and will keep on cashing in the dividends. ;-)


Thanks a lot for your comment.
