November 2014 Dividend Income Update

It’s good to reflect…more on that in a moment. For those of you new to these posts on my site, every month I discuss my approach to investing using Canadian dividend paying stocks and low-cost Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs), and how reinvesting the dividends and distributions paid from these holdings are helping us reach financial independence.  You can check out my previous dividend income update here. Now the reflection bit.  Back in January 2014 I wrote this on my site: Thanks to Canadian companies that pay regular dividends and tend ...

October 2014 Dividend Income Update

Canadians have been urged to save more for retirement.  There are some good reasons for that.  On average we’re living longer and that longevity risk has the potential to derail our financial plans.  There are also other risks that need to be controlled.  Those include: Volatility – the magnitude of losses and gains over time due to market swings.

July 2014 Dividend Income Update

Welcome to my latest dividend income update. For those of you new to these posts on my site, every month I discuss my approach to investing using Canadian dividend paying stocks and some Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) to help reach financial freedom.  There is more to my portfolio beyond these investments but this approach is a big part of it. Outside of a few ETFs in my RRSP, I now own about 30 Canadian dividend paying stocks with no intention of selling any of them in the short-term, including this one that has cost me a few hundred bucks in losses ...
