May always brings in a small set of dividend income but I did end up making a larger amount of purchases than usual.

Dividends received for May 2016:

Corus Entertainment (CJR.B)$9.50
RioCan Real Estate (REI.UN)$11.75
Royal Bank (RY) $81.00
Total:
$102.25

RY increased monthly dividends.

Purchases this month:
  • Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS) - 40 shares @ 65.18 = $2607.20
  • Royal Bank (RY) - 25 shares @ 77.69 = $1942.25
  • TransCanada Corp (TRP) - 22 shares @ 52.12 = $1146.64
Total amount of new purchases this month: $5696.09

Portfolio Update

The total portfolio is now at: $48,525.12

As of today:

I have received a total of $673.54 in dividends this year. The portfolio will generate about $2084/yr which is $174 per month on average of tax-free income.

Over $100 is great, but what is more impressive is the new purchases! Keep it up! Curious also to know how I get added to your blog list? I'd be happy to add your site to mine as well. Let me know, Cheers!
