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 

    • Oct. 16 : Fortis (FTS) raised its quarterly dividend to 0.425$ (6.25% increase)

    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?


  1. I love the BNS number. I just nibbled at this in the past month or so and received my first dividend from this company last week. I'd owned it before in a taxable account, but closed that one out and put it into an IRA.

    1. Yeah, BNS is a relatively new addition (2015 or so). I'm quite happy with so much so now it's my second biggest investment. Thanks for story by Chris.

  2. 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

    I am Michelle Huxford from Casper, Wyoming. I was in a very chronic financial issue and terminal health situation some few weeks back. After all my search for assistance from friends and neighbors proved abortive, I feel there was no one who truly cares. I became so emaciated due to lack of good food and my 2 kids age 5 and 8 were not also good looking due to lack of proper care as a result of finance. One faithful morning I saw an old time friend of my late husband and I told him all I have been going through and he said the only way he could help was to direct me to a good loan agency that also helped him, He explained to me on how he was financially down and how he got boosted by this loan agency UPSTART LOAN INC ( ) who grant him 245,000 USD loan at an affordable rate. He further assured me that they were the only legit loan firm he found in the quest of seeking for loan after been scammed by various fake loan lenders online. He gave me their email: or text/call (574) 301-1639, That was how i applied and was also granted a loan and my life changed for the good. CONTACT THE ONLY GENUINE LENDERS( UPSTART LOAN INC) VIA email: or call +1 (574) 301-1639 to resolve your financial mess.

  7. God i thank you for sending this reliable loan lender to me this year 2018 to change my business and life financially. Its a good year for me already and not as worst as 2016 and 2017 that the two loan lenders i came across were scammers and liars.

    First I want to start with thanksgiving to God who made it possible for me to know Dr Derek Barlow the CEO of Barlow loans worldwide. After been scammed severally by two fake online loan lenders. Me coming across a loan firm as this really open doors for my business and financial need that has been broken for 2 years now. Dr Derek is a God sent to the world when it comes to help and granting loans to all around the continent and not just me alone. Oh no wonder serious and reliable business men and women and all around the world is talking positively about you sir and your reliable work. Again am happy that my past experience in the hands of those fraudsters that scammed me out of my hard earned money twice online did not make me give up and turn your offer to help me down when you were willing to help. Hey people i have gotten myself my dream loan to establish my own company and be financially stable as all this was done by Barlow loans. After going through tears in the hands of those online fraudsters, I knew i still have hopes of meeting a real and straight forward loan lender someday which really came to pass on the 11th of this month. Barlow loans worldwide made me to really confirm the part of the holy bible that says out of twelve there must really be a Judah. Kudos to the board of directors of Barlow loans that really granted me my dream loan of $155000 CAD. Hey people on earth, I dont really know who i am trying to help with this post that need loan not to contact the wrong loan firm or person, But what i know is that i have contributed my own part to your financial success by coming openly online to tell everyone on earth that if you need a loan, Kindly be of good to yourself to contact only Barlow loans worldwide as they grant loans to anybody no matter your tribe, religion, color and culture. Praise God that Barlow loans could help me financially with there reliable loan lending services. The board of directors of Barlow loans, i dont really know how to say thank you as i felt this my post will be one of what i can use to tell you thank you and also direct those that need loan to contact you and not to disturb you to avoid them contacting the wrong and fake loan lenders just the way i did before i came in contact with you sir. Reach out to them on there company email address which is /// . Mind you that is to contact him for loan that there are procedures that has to be taken to get your loan and if you dont meet with them there is no how you can be granted a loan at Barlow loans worldwide as they are know for reliability.


Thanks a lot for your comment.
