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 January 30th, my Passive Income total =  6 025,96$

It represents roughly 500 $ 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 only dividends from stocks I own and interests. (not royalties)


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 seven stocks :

  1. Johnson and Johnson (JNJ) | Health | 715.68$ (12%)
  2. Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS) | Financial | 625.60$ $ (10%) 
  3. Power Financial (PWF) | Financial | 606.20$ (10%)
  4. BCE (BCE) | Telecom | 604$ (10%)
  5. Royal Bank of Canada (RY) | Financial | 564$ (9%)
  6. Power Corporation (POW) | Financial | 534$ (9%)
  7. Enbridge (ENB) | Energy | 501$ (8%)

  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.

  3. Great Dividend, Like ships that pass in the night, cutting-edge couples are increasingly harried with the needs of work, circle of relatives duties, kids and an infinite array of distractions. What will be extra sensual and romantic than dancing hand-in-hand, looking into every different's eyes and swaying to stunning music?
