My January 2017 Dividend Income Summary : $VCN $VIU $EMP.A $BCE $CP $ $MDLZ $BNS $VSB

Hey Personal Financial Freaks! This is my first Dividend Income Summary for 2017. 

Time flies, no?. It reminds us all to make the most of it while we roam the blue planet. So quit taking selfies, bitching about how your job sucks or starting sentences with "I should have...". Do it already. 

This tidbit of philosophical clichés is proudly presented to you by yours truly, Mr. D.

Random stuff I'm already tired of hearing/seeing in 2017 :

  • it starts with a T and ends with a P. Yeah, that guy.
  • the end of the Bull Market or the imminent correction;
  • bloggers with 5 months of financial knowledge suggesting stock picks; 
  • investors saying they are Financially independent when in fact they are living on the edge or in a basement somewhere;
  • people who follow me on twitter only so I can follow them (get a grip on your life);
  • people who thank me on twitter for following them (immediately unfollowed);
  • people on twitter sending me marketing stuff after I followed them (you are so out);
  • got more? no you don't! 

Random stuff I already love about 2017 : 
  • Johnny Depp unwillingly giving us some money lessons;
  • X-MAS being far far away;
  • knowing how to spell misanthropist. ;)

Now BS aside, let's talk numbers. How did you stack-up divvy wise? I have to say my harvest is modest even though 8 companies chipped in this month.  Check it out on my Passive Income page.

In January, I managed to collect 260.30$The amounts are all in Canadian dollars. 

My Dividends came from:

                Vanguard (VCN) : 17.90$ 

                Vanguard (VIU) : 10.55$

                Vanguard (VSB) : 12.30$ 

                BCE (BCE) : 40.95$ (I love this stock, but it has remain pricey even during the last correction. Telecom is surely a sector I'd like to increase in my portfolio. I'm waiting for a bigger dip.)

                Canadian Pacific (CP) : 25$ (I love this stock too, but the meagre dividend is annoying).

                Empire (EMP.A) : 15.38$ (A new comer.)

                Mondelez (MDLZ) : 26.48$.

                Bank of Nova Scotia : 111.74$ (cool).

My total Dividend paid for 2017 :  = 260.30$

What do you think of my dividend income stream?


  1. Very nicely done here for your first month of the year! I dare not ask you to follow me on Twitter then (tongue in cheek of course). Cheers

    1. Thanks man! I will follow like the U2 song. I'm joking a little bit in my post. I follow just abut anybody but some people are really. well you know... thanks again for your comment! ;-)

  2. Nice start for 2017. Should I make stock suggestions ? My blog is older than 5 month ... haha I will not !

    1. Hey FT! funny man... yeah you can make stock picks, it doesn't mean I will follow them! ;-) in fact, I heard somewhere that stock suggestions are always bad pick. Especially the one from workmates.

    2. Oh workmate gave you the worst pick haha. But yeah don't follow the pick from someone but do your own analysis before buying something.

    3. Lol -- yeah always do your own analysis. That is for sure. Having said that you can't go wrong with blue chips stocks. The biggest task is to find a fair price -- or as would Benjamin Graham would put it : a decent margin or error.

  3. Income that you don't have to do any work is the best type of income. Nice start for the first month, on to the next one.

    1. Thanks D 4 future! Dividend Income is certainly the best type of income. 100% agree with you! It's like finding money in your jeans pocket every three months! ;)

  4. haha nice list of frustrations...I hear ya.

    Congrats on the dividends/distributions received for the month. Keep it up!

    1. hey r2r! lol. yeah, thought I would joke a little about that. thanks for the good words!

  5. I'm a huge Vanguard fan! Congrats on bringing in 2017 with dividend income. Keep it up!

    1. HeyDD! yeah, me too I love the fact that Vanguard keeps lowering their fees. thanks for visiting my blog. ;)

  6. MD,
    Your dividend income is pretty good! January was a thin month for me with a little over 100$ in dividend but my online income boosted my overall passive (ans not so passive income).

    1. Hey Blogueur masqué!

      Thanks for the kind words. My online income is... well 0$. I didn't even make it to 30$ yet on my Google Ad thing... and it's been 3 years... ;-) I guess I will concentrate on my dividend income!


Thanks a lot for your comment.
