The last couple of months have been insane – but I can confidently say things are slowly getting back to normal and I hope to start posting again on a semi regular basis. Our house has been sold, we’ve moved into our new home, and we are almost completely settled in.
In preparation for the house sale/purchase I made some changes to my TFSA portfolio (I liquidated some Marijuana stocks) as they were up quite a bit and I wanted to get some new furniture/things for the house without dipping into line of credit. Once the house sale is processed I will have reached one of my goals for the year (paying off line of credit) as well!
I wasn’t able to post an August update – so here is a quick update for August & September combined:
Personal Highlights for August & September:
Passive Income Update For August & September:
TFSA dividend income dropped a bit as I cashed out my shares of ONEREIT.
Diversified Royalty: $17.71 (Dripped 6 new shares)
Artis Reit: $97.29 (Dripped 6 new shares)
Plaza Reit: $48.45 (Dripped 10 new shares)
Canadian Western Bank: $0.24 (yes you read that right…I still have 1 share of this as I dripped a share after I sold off my position..lol)
TFSA Total: $189.17 ($99.89 in August, $89.28 in September).
Canadian Equity Income Distribution: $204.16 (Aug) & $205.91 (Sept) for a Total of $410.07
Total Passive Income Aug/September Comibined: $599.24
My investment portfolio saw a pretty big drop in value as I cashed out about $20,000 from my TFSA. That said my overall networth didn’t change as my cash on hand & real estate value increased, and my line of credit will soon be 0.
Although my investment portfolio did take a pretty big hit – once I’ve spent a couple months in the new house and determined what all the bills will be/how much extra cash I’ll have per month I will start looking for opportunities to deploy some cash again.
