Monthly Financial Update

Personal Highlights for November:

  • My little miracle science test tube baby Holland turned FOUR years old!  For those unaware, my wife and I struggled with fertility for years before finally succeeding with the help of IVF.  I wrote a post about the whole process and our daughters birth last year on here birthday which you can read HERE
  • We took my daughter to go see Frozen 2 on her Birthday(she made it through the whole movie this time), and then we watched the Winnipeg Blue Bombers win the Grey Cup!
  • As usual, my sister in law made an amazing cake for the birthday party. This year the theme was FROZEN (of course):

  • I hosted my first ever whisky tasting.  I am not going to give too many details because I plan on writing a full post on the event, with some pictures, consensus favourite whiskys and more!
  • As part of my daughters birthday, we got her a new bed and moved her into a new room.  This started a chain reaction, and moved our youngest out of his crib into a bed as well.  It’s crazy, but the kids are getting so big, so fast!  Here is a recent pic of the two of them being goofy as usual:

  • Financial Highlights for November:
  • Continued bi-weekly deposits into Spousal RRSP, and TFSA.
  • Took some profit on GoEasy stock and used proceeds to pick up more shares of Transcontinental.
  • Purchased an additional 356 shares of Diversified Royalty Corporation.
  • Paid dividends from 3 companies, and 1 funds.  Dripped a total of 20 new shares/unites.
  • November is one of my slowest months as far as dividends go, but it is always followed by a huge December, as a couple of funds pay their distributions.
  • Portfolio hit a new all time high!

Passive Income Update For November 2019.


Diversified Royalty: $10.18

Total Passive Income November 2019:  $420.10

Portfolio Update:

Total passive income in November was $420.10.  Although this is one the lowest months this year, it is actually an increase of 28.7% from last year!

My portfolio currently sits at: $366,760.48.  This is an all time high, and represents an increase of 20.8% Year over Year.  The best part about that, is this year is the least amount of fresh capital I’ve put into my account in over 5 years.  The growth is a combination of compound interest and a stock market that just keeps reaching new highs.

Stay tuned for a post on my first ever whisky tasting event. Cheers!
