September went by incredibly fast. Two trips covering five different cities certainly made things feel hectic. I consider myself very lucky to have been spared by the tornados that hit Ottawa. They’re very rare and there was little warning. It really makes you appreciate how destructive and random these extreme weather events can be. This […]Read more "Dividend Income Update September 2018"
August is my preferred month of summer. It always somehow seems to be more chill. I have no idea why, but I’ve always felt that. I had a great time enjoying the sun outside and even made it out of the city to get some fresh air and relax by the water. Like July, August […]Read more "Dividend Income Update August 2018"
Well, it definitely seems a bit less hot than the last time I posted (merely a 31C day compared to the sweltering 41C about a mont ago). Can you believe summer is half over? While not a record breaking month, July turned out to be solid for the Niche Fund. There was also a nice […]Read more "Dividend Income Update July 2018"
Summer has arrived and it is nice and hot so far. It is so hot that there are heat warnings for the long weekend. Sounds perfect, feels like 41C. This month turned out to be a new record for dividend income in the Niche Fund (excluding mutual fund distribution month, December). I wasn’t actually expecting […]Read more "Dividend Income Update June 2018"
It is already the end of May and it seems like we skipped spring and are now already in full blown summer. Perfect. May wound up being a pretty slow month for dividends in my portfolio. That said, I received the first dividend from one of my recent purchases, Nestle. I’ve been slow to post […]Read more "Dividend Income Update May 2018"
Winter is finally over! April is one of my favourite months, you can finally spend more time outside, patios start re-opening and overall my mood seems to improve. This might have something to do with not having to shovel a huge driveway. Getting more fresh air and sun definitely helps people like me who get […]Read more "Dividend Income Update April 2018"
Winter is finally over. Second winter is over. Third winter just started…while there is a lot less snow around it is still unusually cold. It was somewhat encouraging not to have an ice rink on my driveway, but it will be a lot nicer when patio season finally kicks in! Dividend income in March wound […]Read more "Dividend Income Update March 2018"
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! This post is really late, but better late than never. February is usually one of the slowest month in terms of passive income for the portfolio. This was no exception in 2018. It will likely stay that way until I add more equities with monthly or quarterly payments that pay out in […]Read more "Dividend Income Update February 2018"
A new year brings with it a clean slate. This is the time of year people come up with goals and resolutions for the year ahead. I made some adjustments to what I will be capturing in future updates to better reflect the passive income from my investments. It is my goal to increase contributions […]Read more "Dividend Income Update January 2018"
Merry Christmas, I hope everyone enjoyed the holidays! Now time for my favourite post of the year, my December dividend income update. As you may be able to tell, I’m a little bit impressed with how things shaped up this month… The S&P500 reached new heights, again, to hit 2,694 mid December. All of the […]Read more "Dividend Income Update December 2017"
