*The transfer of funds from mutual fund to ETF/Direct investing hasn’t happened as of writing this – even though papers have been signed – so next month will represent the new funds.
My portfolio grew by 1.67% month over month and once again hit an all time! The early retirement portfolio now sits at $306,396.65. Dividends grew by $14.95 vs last January (year over year growth of 3.69%). I expect my dividend growth rate to increase quite a bit more this year once my funds are transferred from my Mutual Funds and into my direct investing account/redeployed. I am also planning on trying to contribute more into my TFSA this year which should help increase dividends for the year.
I’ve decided to add a new section to the monthly updates, which will be my top 5 stocks I am looking to buy in the future/keeping an eye on:
