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?


  1. Congrats on that amount a dividends. It's a nice start for 2017 :)

  2. Very nice start to the year for sure. You've done well. As for a language... German I think.

    1. Thanks BHL! Not too bad of a month... yeah, German, i would love it too. Always been interested in history and this language intrigues me. ;)

  3. I am also got some invested in Verizon (VZ). I do enjoy their dividends.
    It has been a while since I seen Curb Your Enthusiasm. Thanks for the quote.
    Good luck in march.

    1. Hey Div Monkey! Nice to see you again. Yeah I need more telecom in my life : either BCE or VZ. Curb your Enthusiasm is funny, isn't it! ;)
      Take care !

  4. Sounds like you're having a blast learning Spanish (or possibly Catalan)? My wife and I had just enough Spanish to order ourselves food, thank people, and ask where washrooms were located :P

    Another steady month of dividends for you...and more good things to come three months from now with the latest Royal Bank dividend increase! Felicitations :)

  5. Spanish, that is! ;) Well that's more spanish than a lot of people know. So congrats! Yeah, how about this divvy from RY! Merci vieux et félicitations à toi aussi!

  6. Hi, are you ok with the Verizon high debt?

  7. Your 2017 is coming along well already! I think your Feb payers are solid choices. Do you like bank stocks in general?

  8. Hey GenY! Thank you for the kind words. I do like bank stocks in general. But like everything else you need a good exposure to other sectors as well. You never know... ;-)


Thanks a lot for your comment.
