September 2018 – Passive Income

Toronto Zoo – Side Note I’m a fish hobbyist and got a nice Cichlid tank as well.

September 2018 – Passive Income

Here we go, October. The cold is making its way in. Its a nice change, when you work outside though. Our son already got his costume for Halloween – Mario. Time is just flying by!

September was another great month though, got some projects done around the house. We went to the Toronto Zoo a week or 2 ago. Unfortunately we thought our daughter would really enjoy it but she didn’t really notice the animals unless they moved. (shes 8 months old) Haha, me and our son loved it though.

The lil man started school again. Which is fantastic for all of us. I love hearing about what he’s learning new, and his classmates. The conversations are better when hes not at home all the time. He has 2 great teachers.

Other than that, not too much new.

Life is Good.

Raises or Cuts

I don’t think there was any news on this front in September. August had a tonne of raises, so its all good.

January 2018 - Passive Income

August 2018 Purchases

First of all, I’d love to thanks all of you for your continued support and putting up with the ads on the site. This is the 2nd time google has paid me a bit and definitely helps cover the cost to run the site. That payment is a nice bonus and gets moved right into direct investing towards the next purchase.

This was the 2nd time ever our passive income sources tossed us over $1500 in passive income. It truly is amazing to see these numbers. To think in the beginning of 2017 we were lucky to see a month over 200 bucks. If you wonder how we did it, as I often get asked check out this post – How we Increased our Forward income by $12,000 in One Year.

Unfortunately our dividend income was actually lower this month, compared to 3 months ago. This was because of the sale of Richie Bros Auctions to fund a new car. That dropped $30 each quarterly payment. Luckily this is a long term game and we will be back to those previous levels soon enough.

Sounds like Canada and the U.S finally agreed upon a new Nafta agreement, That’s great for the markets. Although it will make the stocks I’m interested in purchasing this month more expensive =)

As I stated earlier it was another great month all across the board. I think this will be the last $1500 month until the Sun perks up again in the spring next year. The weather can really fluctuate these passive income reports! By then though hopefully we will be in the $1700 range.

How was your month? Did you set any new records?

Keep stacking those Div’s!

  1. Congrats on a fantastic month. Over $600 and 16 drips very impressive. Keep up the great work. Can’t wait to see what you buy next.

    • Rob says:

      hey Matt

      Thanks man, got to love the drips!
      Right now I keep debating a couple stocks but we will see if anything drops in price before than.


  2. DivvyDad says:

    Great results not only from the dividends but the entire passive income stream! That is quite impressive over a relatively short period of time, and it is great that you were able to fund a new car purchase with a limited impact to the passive income too!

    • Rob says:

      hey Dd

      Thanks, yeah it is shocking the amount we are bringing in some months. Too bad i wasnt investing earlier or the market doesnt pull back to get some higher yields!

      I remember reading Tawcan was buying banks up at around 25 bucks a share, that would be sweet!

      Eventually I guess.

      The car thing was definately nice but put a nice dent in my industrial and basic material sector. Those need some patching!

      cheers Dd!

  3. Looks like a very smooth month for you. A $30 quarterly drop to buy another car is not a big deal. You’ll reach the previous high in no time. I agree with you about the NAFTA deal. It’s positive for Canadian Stocks so we might not see good deals in October. Any thoughts about your next buy?

    • Rob says:

      hey German thanks man.

      Honestly I dont really know too much. I think with Nafta finalized its basically guarantees a interest rate hike next time so most likely the financials will benefit most. Bns still looks good but algonquin power took a little dip today, so ill watch that as well.

      What stocks are you watching?


  4. Congrats! Over $600 in dividend income and over $1,500 in passive income altogether! That is very impressive! Keep it up! 🙂

  5. Brian says:

    What a great month for you, congrats! I believe you had one increase in September (SIS 2% increase). Keep er going!

  6. Congrats on the fantastic month, Rob! I haven’t been to the zoo in a few years but I always enjoy it when I go. As for your dividend income and other passive income, you’re absolutely crushing it man! Nice job. $605.19 in dividend income is very impressive. I’m holding HLF, ENB, and Riocan too. I need to increase the position sizes. Also congrats on the blog income from Google Adsense. The extra income from blogging does help offset the costs of running a website.

    As for my month, I didn’t set a new record, but I did post 368% yoy growth. I’m expecting a new record for the year in October. Thanks for sharing man!

    • Rob says:

      hey Graham

      The zoo is always a good time. I would like to see a couple more species together tho. ie one zebra… why not have 3 or something.

      As for the income thanks man, while you didn’t set any records your yr over yr is massive. Growth is all that matters. up n up!cheers man

  7. Awesome month, sounds like you have a lot of nice moments in your personal life. Also your dividends keep chugging along and I’m quite amazed at how much Google Adsense revenue you’ve got. At 72% it’s going to be an exciting 3 months to see if you’ll reach your goal! We’ll be here, hoping you will! Have a good one PCI.


    • Rob says:

      hey Dutch

      Lifes short, we need to enjoy it now.

      As far as the goal go’s it is definately going to be extremely close! lol I just looked at my total passive income last yr and it was a little north of $6000 so either way ill be happy.

      cheers mate!

  8. Mr. Robot says:

    I’ll keep this one short and sweet, your results rock Rob! The trend is upwards and you are making the right moves. Keep it up!

  9. PCI –

    I simply cannot wait for that solar income to be massive in 2019. Nice job overall man!!


  10. Caroline says:

    Nice growth chart:)
    Pretty cool about the Google ad extra income.

  11. All the charts show your superb progress, Rob. Congrats!
    All sorts of income streams this month… have to like that, especially the Adsense one, as that’s not as predictable as the others… at least not yet. 🙂
    As for the dividends, ENB did some heavy lifting for you in September… more than 3x the next dividend payer. Good to see 3 new additions, too, to help offset the 5 sold.
    Keep stacking those dividends…

    • Rob says:

      hey Engineer thanks.

      Yeah my Enbridge postion is a pretty huge one in my portfolio. Love the company, but its hard to lower the percentage it has on my portfolio with dividends like this each quarter!

      Adsense is definately a nice bonus.

  12. Hey PCI,
    Incredible month and very diversified income sources! I especially like that Solar income – not something I see in reports of other bloggers 🙂
    Keep it up!

    • Rob says:

      hey Broke!

      Welcome, love seeing new faces. Thanks alot. I think its a great way of investing to stay diversified in as many ways as we can.

      Glad you enjoyed it.
