My March 2017 Dividend Income Summary : $POW $ACO.X $VIU $VCN $JNJ $ENB $FTS $KHC $VSB $SU $CUF.UN

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

As you can see on my Passive Income page, 11 companies chipped in for this month.  Wow!

In March, I managed to collect 556.30$. I thought the divvy that came in late during March would be counted as April dividend. But apparently they ended up being registered in my account as March Dividends. Whatever the month, as long as they come in. right?.. Nevertheless, I corrected the numbers below to reflect accurately my dividends collected for this month. It's not bad. Not bad at all!

The amounts are all in Canadian dollars. 

My Dividends came from:

                REIT Cominar (CUF.UN) : 36.75$  (I recently bought 50 additional shares so this amount will increase next month);

                Vanguard VSB (VSB) : 16.36$ (steady income from this low-cost bond fund)

                Vanguard VIU (VIU) : 4.93$ (small income from this low-cost international fund)

                Vanguard VCN (VCN) : 17.03$ (not a bad income from this low-cost Canadian stock fund)

                AtTCO  (ACO.X) : 49.13$ (ATCO is red-hot these days.)

                Enbridge (ENB) : 58.30$ (The divvy has gone up since their last increase)

                Power Corp (POW) : 100.50$ (The Canadian financial conglomerate will probably increase its dividend in May. What are you waiting for?)

                Fortis (FTS) : 51.20$ (The divvy has gone up since their last increase).

               Johnson and Johnson (JNJ) : 140.25$ (King of Kings. Dividend increase in April...).

              Suncor (SU) : 48.00$ (SU isn't part of my big 5 anymore, it's still a force to be reckon with.)

             Kraft Heinz Company (KHC) : 33. 85$ (What does Warren have in store with this stock?).

My total Dividend paid for 2017 :  260,30$ + 264.24$ + 556.30 = 1080.84$

What do you think of my dividend income stream?

My February 2017 Dividend Income Summary : $PWF $RY $VZ $VCN $CUF.UN

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

I'm currently abroad trying to master a third language. It's a pretty humbling experience. 

Learning a language, like many of you know (yet too little I might add), is like being a kid again: you can barely communicate, you are clueless, you look stupid most of the time (hats with straight visor rings a bell?) you make a lot of mistakes and girls don't dig you (why would they with your pants down your butt?).

But! -- no pun intended. And therein lies the beauty of it all, once you start to master your new language you will slowly unlocked your inner capacities. Suddenly the world will truly become your oyster (ok, maybe not that much, but eh, it will make you feel better!). It's like turning the whole world upside down. "Tupsy turvy that m**** f****".  (quote from Curb your enthusiasm). You will feel good, confident and girls dig confidence. I know that for a fact (I have asked my mom!).

So try it : french, mandarin, japanese, spanish... whatever! Just stop saying you should like most of the of the world. Get off your lazy butt and do it. Use your dividends to pay fo your classes! Duh. That is wise dividend investing by the way, probably one of the smartest way to use this free money.

So, I was saying...

As you can see on my Passive Income page, only 5 companies chipped in for this month. I might start looking for dividend paying companies that pay in February!

So this month, I managed to collect 264.24 $The amounts are all in Canadian dollars. 

My Dividends came from:

                REIT Cominar (CUF.UN) : 36.75$

                Power Financial (PWF) : 78.50$ (this stock is finally doing pretty well. I have added to this position over the last two years and I'm quite happy I did).

                Royal Bank of Canada (RY) : 107.90$ (It's RY, need I say more?).

                Vanguard (VSB) : 22.38$ (Slowly but steady).

                Verizon (VZ): 18.71$. (I want more Verizon!).

My total Dividend paid for 2017 :  260,30$ + 264.24$ = 524,54$

What do you think of my dividend income stream? Fancy learning a language? Which one?
