January 2019 – Dividend Update

January Dividend Update

Monthly Dividend Update

January was a pretty good month all around.  The blog smashed the all time visitor record, the markets recovered a bit, and I scored some tickets to a limited release bourbon tasting (which takes place next week!)

Personal Highlights for January:

  • Highest all time visits to the web page
  • I officially sent the letter to my Winnipeg Jets ticket rep telling them I won’t be renewing my season tickets.  I’ll be writing a future post explaining why in more detail.
  • Started using the treadmill a few times – haven’t set any goals, and don’t have any plans to run any marathons – but feels good to get on their and burn some calories.
  • On the booze side of things – tried a few new bottles (Stagg Jr, Knob Creek) and wrote up my first couple reviews.  I am very excited to attend my first ever bourbon tasting next week.  I also entered a lottery for a chance to win a few bottles from the Buffalo Trace Antique collection
  • The kids are both doing great.  Isaac is starting to say a few more words, and Holland is becoming a bit more difficult – but in a good/fun way.  She enjoys a healthy debate, and is always trying to compromise.
  • Started getting some tax receipts…Should have everything in the next month or so, and then can file my taxes 🙂
  • It’s been -50 with the windchill the last few days, so we haven’t got outside much – but here is a pic from one of the “warmer” days

Financial Highlights for January:

  • Continued bi weekly payments into spousal RRSP  (30 units of US Equity Index Fund)
  • I was paid by 7 companies and 1 funds.  I Dripped 30 new shares/units.
  • Portfolio jumped back up over 6% – though still below all time high
  • Dripped another ELEVEN shares of Algonquin – Love that company! Hoping for another dividend increase this year:)
  • Cashed in my RBC reward points from my credit card for a $500 voucher to be deposited into my TFSA.

Portfolio Update:

My portfolio jumped back up 6.58%. My portfolio currently sits at $308,441.55

Dividends grew by $38.51 compared to last January. This represents an 9% increase.

I currently have just under $3000 sitting in cash in my RRSP account. I’ve been researching a few companies to deploy that cash – but may also just add to my position(s) in XAW or the CAD Equity Income Fund.

Thanks for reading, Cheers!
