In September I borrowed $5000.00 from the Canadian portion of Investment Account #1 as we had some major expenses; our daughter’s tuition/books and various annual insurance premiums had to be paid.
In order to reduce the balance owing I decided to suspend the automatic dividend reinvestment feature on the Canadian investments in Account #1. Dividends received in all the other accounts continue to be automatically reinvested.
I used most of the US cash in Investment Account #4 to acquire 12 additional Johnson & Johnson (NYSE: JNJ) shares at USD$132.95/share (there was a commission of $9.99 for this purchase).
I analyzed Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ: MSFT) on September 20, 2017 and promptly acquired 240 shares at USD$75.61 (there was a commission of $9.99 for this purchase).
If you look at our FFJ Portfolio Dividend Income report where I track the dividends we receive monthly you will see that we have received CDN$8,823.07 CDN and USD$9,362.75 in dividend income as at the end of September 2017. I am confident we will generate in excess of CDN$12,200 and in excess of USD$13,000 for all of 2017.
I will need to sit down in December 2017 and determine what goals I want to set for 2018.
