My April Dividend Income Summary + Latest buys + Dividend Raise $JNJ : $BNS $BCE $CP $MDLZ...

Hey Personal Financial Freaks! This is my fourth Dividend Income Summary for 2018. 

As you can see on my Passive Income page, 11 companies chipped in for this month.  

My dividend tally is stalling because I'm going through tougher times earnings wise. But eh, I'm still very happy working from home! 

In April, I managed to collect the pretty decent amount of 407.62$

The amounts are all in Canadian dollars. 

My Dividends came from:

                REIT Cominar (CUF.UN) : 12.06$  (This was my last dividend from Cominar. I have liquidated my position. This stock is a real dud.)

                Vanguard VSB (VSB) : 15.36$ (steady income from this low-cost bond fund. Sold a little bit though to invest in beat-up stocks. That's part of my Strategy)

                Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS) : 140.22$ (Second largest position after JNJ. How did this happen? Buying on the dips for the past 3 years...)

                Mondelez International (MDLZ) : 29.24$ (I have been really patient with MDLZ and had a good return thus far -- since the split with Kraft. What's in store for that stock though?)

               BCE (BCE) : 75.50$ (One of my two telecoms with VZ. My position is growing and the dividends too. The stock is relatively cheap and I may increase my position.) 

             Alimentation Couche-Tard  (ATD.B) : 10.80$ (Nothing to write mama about. But the stock has potential. I'm telling you.) 

             Rio Can Real Estate (REI.UN) :  18.00$ (This stock is flatlining. Shades of Cominar?).

             REIT Canadian Apartment Properties (CAR.UN) : 5.33$   (Favorite REIT by a landslide)

             Vanguard International (VIU):  6.15$ (My International position outside of US and Canada. It's done well thus far although not a big divvy payer. Would like to increase position to 5% of portfolio...)

             Canadian Pacific Railway (CP) : 30.94$ (My biggest railway position. They just increased they dividend by 15%). 

             ATCO (ACO.X) : 64.02$ (Wow, quite the dividend paid, no?The stock is really beat-up. It's a keeper). 

My total Dividend paid for 2018 :  = 400.06$+354.36$+672.20$+407.62$

Latest buys and sells

  • I have initiated two new positions in the US and A (dixit Borat) : in the Walt Disney company and Walgreen's. These two solid dividend paying companies should do well in the future. I will increase my position in them over time.

    Greetings great mind, It will be my greatest pleasure saving Individuals and companies from extortion, I know not everyone will want to take it upon their self to reveal the bitter truth about online Lending because of insecurity, Time of doing it and all that. I Ryan F. Tyler, an outstanding businessman who reside at Oakland, California has taken it upon himself to share this article to whom it may concern so they can learn and educate their self from it . It's bad to the extend where you see testimonies online about getting a loan and it turn out to be fake. For real i have fallen for that tricks countless time to the extend i lost almost 65,000usd in total all in the name of getting a loan to invest in a very lucrative business. After so many failed attempt of securing a loan, I and my Manager went online to do a thorough search and found this company PROSPER LOAN FIRM ( (816) 366-8769 ) but before giving it a try we also went ahead to make sure they are registered under BBB, check their reviews and also go to their headquarter to confirm their existence and capability.We were so careful because we didn't wanted to lose any dime again and to our greatest expectation they deliver according to their review and grant us our desire loan amount of 510,000Usd. A word to everyone out there when it comes to Online Lenders contact only PROSPER LOAN FIRM via email: { prosperloanfirm@yahoo.com } or drop a message to them via text at (816) 366-8769 and consider all your financial problems tackled and solved.#SHARE, You can rescue someone from been victimized today, Thanks.
