Latest buy + Dividend Raise and November Dividend Income Summary $PWF $RY $VZ...

Hello freaks and voyeur of the financial thing! (yeah, you! it's ok I like it too!

About voyeurism, go check out this article in the New Yorker. Simply fascinating. The Netflix documentary is also interesting. 

As you can see on my Passive Income page, only 7 companies chipped in for this month of November. 

This month I managed to collect the exact sum of 351.94$. 

My Dividends came from:

               REIT Cominar (CUF.UN) : 28.50$ (no longer a major dividend payer since their divvy cut. I trimmed my position a little bit, but will keep the 250 units for the long run. It's a major REIT in Quebec and, well, I like it here!)

               REIT Rio Can (REI.UN) : 20.56$ (second largest REIT; just announced a divvy increase. Hopped in just in time I guess).

               REIT Canadian Apartment Properties (CAR.UN) : 5.33$ (third largest REIT. I want this one to be my largest REIT eventually. Not in a hurry. Will wait for dips.)

               Verizon (VZ) : 37.87$ (my new share increase is paying off! And VZ has done well these past days.)

              Vanguard VSB (VSB) : 17.63$ (boring bonds paying cool and steady interests. This fund can be sell easily and redirected into stocks if needed. )

               Power Financial (PWF) : 123.75$ (great Globe and Mail article this week-end. I stick with POW and PWF. They have always find a way. In the meantime, the divvy is steady and we had two consecutive increases.)

               Royal Bank (RY) :  118.30$ (The only time I like my bank is when these dividends come in ;-))

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$+351.94$ 4240.48$

Latest buy 
  • Enbridge (ENB) : I bought some more of this energy stock since it had dipped again. Energy companies have struggled -- especially this one -- for there past two years. They are people who doubt the feasibility of their strategic plan and dividend increases . It's understandable and their last announcement only cleared some of those doubts. But I reckon this is a blue chips. And  blue chips on the dip are value investor's opportunities. I now own 170 shares of ENB. It's not my biggest stake, but it's good one especially dividend wise). It represents roughly 4,17% of my portfolio, but 7.2% among my dividend payers (456.28$ annually).
Dividend news from my companies 

Nov. 30 : Enbridge raised its quarterly dividend to 0.671$ (10% increase and third one this year)

What do you think of this November updates on companies of my portfolio? Any stocks you own or might like to own at some point? How about Enbridge? Tell me!

  1. The dividend increase from ENB makes me a little nervous, but I agree that it's a solid company so I'll be hanging on to my shares!

    I sold about half of my shares in Cominar before they cut their distribution. I think the distribution cut will help the company in the long run, so I'll be keeping my remaining shares!

    1. I hear you on both observations. I am always wary of higher yield. And I should have been more cautious with CUF.UN. Having said that, like you, I think they should now do better onwards. Thanks for commenting FMY. ;)

  2. Hi,
    I just bought some ENB shares (120 throughout all my accounts) and I can say that it's been a controversial buy for some of my readers. Lol
    I'm super happy with my purchase and I guess we'll see how it turns out. I hope it won't turn out like Cominar... grr :)

  3. Salut le blogueur masqué!

    Ah oui, je crois que le titre d'Enbridge est un peu controversé. Peut-être y a-t-il du vrai là-dedans.

    I'm also quite stoke with my purchase. I hope too they don't do a sequel of the Cominar movie!

    Thanks for coming down here. ;-) je suis heureux d'avoir des lecteurs francos.
