Latest buys + Dividend Raise and October Dividend Income Summary $BNS $MDLZ $CP...

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

As you can see on my Passive Income page10 companies chipped in for this month of October. 

It's a big number in terms of company (not in income), since I hold a relatively small portfolio of stocks. Why? Because I  don't have time to monitor more and I consider this amount to be enough to feel well diversified while not diluting my rewards.

People tend to forget that sometimes their holdings are already pretty well diversified.Take for instance Johnson and Johnson or my favorite underdog Power Corporation (POW). Did you know that when you are buying POW you are actually buying stakes in numerous companies worldwide : Adidas, Pernod Ricard, LafargeHolcim, Total, etc. And not to mention many great companies here in Canada : Great West, Group Investors, WealthSimple. And the list goes on.

This month I managed to collect the pretty decent sum of 411.09$

The amounts are all in Canadian dollars. 
  • My Dividends came from:

                   REIT Cominar (CUF.UN) : 28.50$  (largest REIT. Unsure if it will remain like that)

                   REIT Rio Can (REI.UN) : 20.56$ (my second largest REIT)

                   REIT Canadian Apartment Properties (CAR.UN) : 5.33$ (Probably next #1 REIT)

                  Vanguard VSB (VSB) : 19.31$ (boring bonds paying cool and steady interests)

                  ATCO (ACO.X) : 55.68$ (steady dividend from a reliable stock)

                  BCE (BCE) : 71.75$ (Great number. As soon as this stock drops, I will buy more)

                  Mondelez (MDLZ) : 28.97$ (patience is key with this one. As well as with KHC)

                   Bank of Nova Scotia : 134.30$ (how about that! "Nuff said.)

                   Canadian Pacific Railway (CP) : 30.94$ (low divvy,  but great prospect)

                   Empire (EMP.A) :  15.75$ (a steady payer. Will keep monitoring this stock. Possible great capital gain if anything.)

    Total Dividend paid for 2017 :  

    260,30$ + 264.24$ + 556.30+278.54$+283.42+662.43$+322.72$+232.29$+617.01+411.09$ = 3888.34$

    Latest buy 

    • Kraft Heinz Company (KHC) : I bought some more of it since it had dipped again. I know the company has been struggling to adjust to new consuming trends. But they own a lot of marquees brands and I am confident they can pull it through. It seems like the Oracle is optimist too. My overall stake represents roughly 3,3% of my portfolio.

    Dividend news from my companies

    What do you think of this October updates on companies of my portfolio? Any stocks you own or might like to own at some point?
