Passive Income

I could have also called this page : the free cash flow! Because, in a way, it certainly looks like free money! Of course, then again, you need to buy these stocks first. 

Let's settle for Passive Income, wouldn't you agree ?



As of November 3 2017, my Passive Income total =  6 309.07$

It represents roughly 525 $ per month. Since our monthly budget is about 5 000$, it more or less pays 10% of our budget.

(My 2017 financial goals is to hike this side income to 6 000
$. Check it out here)

This includes dividends from stocks I own, royalties and interests.


This Passive Income means money coming in regularly to buy stocks (or if a DRIP applies), travel or simply help pay the bills.


The core of all my dividends come from these six stocks :

  1. Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS) | Financial | 537.20 (9%) 
  2. Power Financial (PWF) | Financial | 495$ (8%)
  3. Royal Bank of Canada (RY) | Financial | 473.20$ (8%)
  4. Johnson and Johnson (JNJ) | Health | 440.16 $ (7%)
  5. Power Corporation (POW) | Financial | 429.00$ (7%)
  6. Enbridge (ENB) | Energy | 414.80$ (7%)

  2. Merci Patrick! Since you wrote me in English, I'll do the same for the sake of my other visitors. But I assume you speak french too. Anyway, thanks for coming by. Yeah, I do love to see those dividends coming in every months. That spreadsheet works as a calendar for me more than anything else. As you can see, March will be a great month. Hope to hear from you again.
