Recent Buy: Canadian Apartment REIT

    A recent purchase of mine this year, and a new position added to my portfolio is Canadian Apartment (CAP) REIT, which goes by the Toronto Stock Exchange ticker CAR.UN. This is now my third REIT position that I hold and rounds out that trio nicely. My other two REIT's are Dream Office REIT, which focuses on large office buildings and commercial spaces, RIOCAN REIT which operates retail spaces, plazas and malls and now CAP REIT which covers residential properties, apartment buildings and manufactured home communities.

January 2017: Dividend Update!

    The first month of the year started off strong once again. Setting a great pace for the rest of 2017. My larger quarterly dividend paying positions came through very nicely! With three of them paying out over $40! And higher than January 2016 due to numerous dividend increases :)

November 2016: Dividend Update!

    Another quick update on a fairly calm and steady month of dividend income. Novembers only increase in dividend income was from a payout increase from the Royal Bank of Canada. And I am happy to accept another 80cents a quarter with no additional work on my part.

October 2016: Dividend Update!

    Just getting in a quick dividend update from October 2016. The first of a quarter is always makes for a good month of dividend income for me, with this months being no different. Had a slight increase from the previously comparable month due to a small fluctuation in the foreign exchange rate between Algonquin's USD dividend and Canadian funds which my portfolio trades in.
