October 2017 – Passive Income 651% gain.
October 2017 Passive Income Report
Another month bites the dust.. Yup it is now November. The mustache has been shaved and for the first time I’m going to signup for Movember. It feels weird and my lip gets cold…… haha! Halloween was great, my kid was a fireman and made a killing. He’s lucky because for some strange reason we didn’t get much kids this year. 28 kids to be exact. So me and the wife have lots of chocolate bars left over and wont be “taxing” him for awhile.
On the dividend front, I’ll be honest I was shocked when tallying up the numbers. I thought we would be just over $200 but no we ended just shy of 300! Unfortunately 2 of my stocks with a nice dividend increase history didn’t raise their yields. I think they both had a 14 yr history but now must start over. Shaw and Corus Entertainment. Shaw is throwing money into its cell phone upgrades so I understand. Corus didn’t do so well and decided to not raise the yield but its almost 10% already. I will continue to hold both companies, I like them both. Altagas raised their dividend payment by 4.3% in October.

October Passive Income Purchases
I feel the market is really high at the moment. Deals are now hard to find especially in the Canadian market. The amazon effect hit again and created a great buy.
We started a new position in CVS, although it is a small one we will continue adding to this stock if there’s value there. Read about the buy here.
This purchase will continue to diversify and increase our Passive Income Stream.
We sold our entire position in Aecon after news came of a potential buyout. The stock skyrocketed and we took the profits. See story here.
So our dividend income increased 651 percent year over year and our passive income by 1904%. Massive gains were made. Every cent counts. I will keep throwing money into the market and these numbers should continue to grow. How was your income / Month?
