Latest buy + Dividend Raise and December Dividend Income Summary $JNJ $FB $POW $FTS $ENB...

Hey Personal Financial Freaks! This is my last Dividend Income Summary of 2017. 

Holidays have been quite hectic and this is why I am posting this Income Summary a little late. It's been a good month though.

As you can see on my Passive Income page12 companies chipped in for this month of December. 

This month I managed to collect the pretty decent sum of 683.47$

The amounts are all in Canadian dollars. 

My Dividends came from:

·      1-REIT Cominar (CUF.UN) : a) 23.75$ + 23.85$ (2 units bought at 14.07$ and 14.17$)

 2-Johnson and Johnson (JNJ) : 140.72$

·      3-Kraft-Heinz (KHC) : 43.81$

·      4-RBC Index funds : 51.48$ (year)

 12- REIT Canadian Apartment Properties (CAR.UN) : 5.33$ 

Total Dividend paid for 2017 :  =  4 923.95$ (damn that's close to 5000S!)

Latest buys 
  • Bought 100 shares of VSB. This is a Bond Index Fund by Vanguard. I have explained in the past why I like to have a little bond exposure. If the stock market goes up much during the year, I balance it out by buying more bonds. Same when it's the other way around (although I dont'recall much of that in a long time!). I now own 500 shares of VSB. These shares can be sold to buy more stocks. But they also provide me with a stable revenu of interests. It's more or less 20$+ per month, around 250$ per year. Which is fine for this fix revenue portion of my portfolio.
  • Bought 2 shares of Facebook (FB). I explained on Twitter why I made that peculiar buy. Fact is, I bought a certificate (one framed share with his name) of Facebook to my nephew. It was roughly trading at 23$ at the time. Needless to say he's quite happy with it now that it's trading at 180$ US... He always teases me with this gift, so I decided to buy two. A little late, I know. But at least if the stock appreciates, I will be singing happily with my nephew instead of hearing him telling me I should have bought some for myself at the time. If you buy a stock as gift for friends of family, make sure you load up on it yourself. If it crashes, you can laugh it out together, same if it peaks. Heck, I might even load up some more in the future. One things is missing from my portfolio and it's a tech-stock. Will it be Facebook or another one? Will see. Any ideas? Let me know.

    I'm thinking of buying more bonds this year too. Do you like to hold VSB in your TFSA or RRSP?

    1. Hey Liquid! Thanks man. Well I hold them in my RRSP. I think its better to hold them in a registered account for sure. Might as well save your TFSA space for something, say, that will grow more in the future.


    I feel so blessed and fulfilled. I've been reluctant in applying for a loan i heard about online because everything seems too good to be true, but i was convinced & shocked when my friend at my place of work got a loan from Progresive Loan INC. & we both confirmed it and i also went ahead to apply, today am a proud owner of my company and making money for my family and a happy mom. Well i'm Annie Joe by name from Pauls Valley, Oklahoma. As a single mom with three kids it was hard to get a job that could take care of me and my kids and I had so much bills to pay and to make it worst I had bad credit so i couldn't obtain a loan from any bank. I had an ideal to start a business as an hair stylist but had no capital to start, Tried all type of banks but didn't work out until I was referred by my co-worker to a godsent lender advertising to give a loan at 2% interest rate. I sent them a mail using their official email address ( and I got a reply immediately and my loan was approved, and I was directed to the Bank site where I withdrawed my loan directly to my account.
