Dividend Income Update January 2019

Dear fellow investors,

If you recall my December post, you’ll know that I’m still going to keep posting my monthly dividend income results. I thought I would have caught up by now, but it looks like things will continue to be quite behind for the time being.

never change

I swear I’m hoping to catch up soon! January 2019 was the best start to the year I could ask for in terms of the portfolio. I set a new record thanks to some healthy dividends from my ETF holdings. This makes sense, as most of the capital I’m contributing is towards building up my ETF holdings. If I could go back in time, I would have started with ETFs first and build on some dividend stock holdings later. Wealthsimple makes it quite easy to get started with investing in a solid basket of ETFs.

Total dividends received in January amounted to $30.83, a 19% yoy gain. It seems that the ETF holdings really boosted the total amount along with some of my core dividend stocks. If this momentum continues throughout 2019, I hope to exceed my previous annual record in terms of dividends received. Even if I didn’t add any more capital, I could expect regular increases due to companies hiking their dividends. Don’t worry, I’m regularly adding to the portfolio, so this snowball is continuing to get bigger.

January 2019 Dividends
VTI: $3.88
XIC: $5.60
XSH: $0.41
VUS: $1.84
DIS: $4.40
BNS: $6.80
MAW104: $0.86 (re-invested in MAW104)
TD: $6.03
CGX: $0.58
XSH: $0.43 (two payments in January)
Total: $30.83

Most of the holdings in my Niche Fund pay quarterly dividends so some months will have more income reflected than others. My Dividend Income page has a calendar showing when I expect to receive dividends from each of my stock holdings.

Yours, until the financial and consumer discretionary sectors pay me to hold some of their best stocks,

  1. You are the only person I know who buy ETFs only. Recently several years, the dividends from ETFs increases every quarter. It is awesome.
