September 2018 Dividends

I’ve finally reached the point where my monthly dividend income is consistently four figures long! I remember, only a couple of years ago, being excited because my dividends would have just barely covered my rent: about $750 a month. It’s nice to see that all the saving and compounding is working. I have a ways to go before I reach FIRE, but I am now confident that I will get there within the next 4-5 years.

These are the companies that paid me last month. All amounts are given in Canadian dollars.

My total dividend income in September was $1250.87! My projected annual income is $13,881.08. I should pass the $14,000 mark by the end of year provided there are no dividend cuts. The only stock that I’m worried about right now is Altagas (ALA). They will be reporting their Q3 results at the end of October so we will see how that goes…
