I’m playing catch up on my blog posts! It has been a very hectic past couple of months and it has been bugging me that I haven’t posted in awhile. Time flies when you’re having fun.
Given how late this post is, I’m going to skip the S&P500 map. I added to my ETF holdings in April but did not make any stock purchases.
The main indices I follow were rather flat throughout April. By the end of the month, things started picking up for the NASDAQ while the S&P and TSX had smaller gains:
S&P500 +1.08%, NASDAQ +3.04%, TSX +0.18%.
April Dividends Received:
When compared to April 2016, my dividend income grew by +30.94%, from $8.50 to $11.13. This was the second highest month for passive income in 2017. April tends to be one of the quieter months in my portfolio, so I’m looking forward to seeing what happens in May and June.
Most of the holdings in my Niche Fund pay quarterly dividends so some months will have more income reflected than others. This month, I decided to include dividends received from my ETF holdings in addition to my dividend stock holdings. This should provide a more interesting roundup each month, especially as the ETF holdings pay more consistently than some of my stocks.
My Dividend Income page has a calendar showing when I expect to receive dividends from each of my stock holdings.
Thank you for checking out my blog.
