Portfolio Value Update - March 2021

Portfolio Value
In March, my stock portfolio increased by $6,286 and closed at $118,457. Considering the size of my portfolio – that’s a big increase. The jump in portfolio value is only attributed to stocks appreciation. I did not add new funds, nor did I purchase anything. I just let the dividends accumulate and hopefully will buy new stocks in April.

Dividends received in March 2021: $454.91
Dividends received in March 2020: $480.55
Year-Over-Year Dividend Growth: -$25.64 or -5.33%
Year-To-Date Dividend Income: $1,355.63

I had a negative growth rate in March compared to last year. This is because last year I received a special dividend of $92.80 from Genworth MI Canada. If I were to exclude the special dividend, the growth rate would have been 17.32%.

Ads Revenue
I have a YouTube channel from which I collect ads revenue from my videos. Ads revenue from my YouTube channel grew by 206% from last year.

March 2021: $662.06
March 2020: $216.35

March 2021 YouTube Stats:
