My June Dividend Income Summary (Record!) + Latest buys : $POW $ENB $JNJ $ACO.X $CNR...

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

As you can see on my Passive Income page13 companies/ETF's chipped in for this month. 

June is a great month that kicks off the summer in a fine way!  

This month I managed to collect the nice sum of 662.43$ It's a record of mine! 

The amounts are all in Canadian dollars. 

My Dividends came from:

              REIT Cominar (CUF.UN) : 49.00$ 

              REIT RIO Can (REU.UN) : 14.69$ 

             Vanguard Canadian Short-Term Bond Index ETF (VSB) : 18.78$

               Enbridge (ENB) : 61.00$

               Fortis (FTS) : 51.20$

              Johnson and Johnson (JNJ) : 145.88$ (The king of Kings).

              Suncor (SU) : 48.00$ (SU isn't part of my big 6 anymore, it's still a force to be reckon with.)

             Vanguard International ETF (VIU) : 29.23$

             Vanguard Canadian ETF (VCN) : 19.23$

             ATCO (ACO.X): 49.13$

             Power Corp (POW): 107.55$

             Canadian National Railway (CNR): 35.06$

             Kraft Heinz Company (KHC) : 33.68$

Latest buys and thoughts
  • I made 5 buys in June. 
  • I invested in companies I own according to my strategy Some of them were pretty beat-up so I added a few to my existing tally. 
  • I finalized (it's an addiction!) my stake in Power Financial (PWF). I now own 300 shares of both PWF and Power Corp (POW.). The whole conglomerate is a little heavy at the moment in my portfolio, (almost 10%) but I'm confident both these stocks will do very well in the future, especially when interest rates go up. It will eventually.  So for now, it's a hold strategy and I will no longer add any of these two stocks (I think so). 
  • I also added some Enbridge again this month. I now hold 150 shares of ENB. I like this stock and since it's fallen down a little bit lately because of oil prices I though I might as well make a move. It now represents a stake of 4% in my portfolio, but I wouldn't mind if it reaches 5-6%. 
  • Speaking of oil prices, another one of my stock was selling cheap (sort of). It's an old stock of mine, and I'm talking about Suncor (SU). I've got an average price per share of around 34$. So I didn't mind paying a little more (38$-39$) for a stock I have been owning since 8 years or so. I now hold 175 shares of SU and it provides me with 236.80$ in dividends annually. 
  • I've also added some Rio Can Real Estate (REI.UN). This is a fairly new addition in my portfolio. Since I first initiated this position the stock has been on the downside. That's always like that, isn't it! So I thought I would add some more when it went below 25$ (it now might go below 24$!).  Rio Can REIT still remain a small player in my portfolio.

  6. I`m Charlie Bean and I live in Toronto Canada. I needed a loan to buy a house and I searched for a mortgage loan from all banks and I was denied and I loss hope of having my own house until I came across a post just as you reading my post now. I saw a post about a Financial Service Company who gives loan at 2% interest so I applied in STEAKLEY FINANCIAL SERVICES using their email And my loan was granted it was like a dream but was true and now am a owner of a house in Toronto and am paying the mortgage loan with no stress and I also requested if I can be granted a business loan and I was also granted. Now am living a happy life, I will advice you if you have an financial problems and you need money to settle it so you can pay with no stress just contact Steakley Financial Service at their email


Thanks a lot for your comment.
