Monthly Dividend Update
February is traditionally a slow month. Even though we have many monthy dividend payers, February is still not very exciting. But than again, this February 2017 Dividend Update is still pretty much positive due to the growth from last year.
We also purchased additional shares this month, which include:
- 100 shares of RDSA; and,
- Tons of DRIP shares including AAR.UN, CJR.B, PLZ.UN (which also raised it’s dividend!), CIX and several more
When we added up all the deposits into the bank accounts (and corrected for exchange rates), we received almost €342. That is a very respectable 59% YOY increase.
We also made a new graph showing the yearly dividend totals for 2015 and 2016, and a year-to-date dividend total for 2017. In the first 2 months for 2017 we already received more dividends than for the total 5 months of 2015. Now that is heading in the right direction! Granted, we only started with dividend growth investing in 2015. We sold all our RRSP (Registered Retirement Savings Plan) held ETF’s and started analysing and investing those funds into dividend stocks.
