Portfolio Value Update - January 2022

Portfolio Value
In January, my portfolio value increased by $7,351 from $143,703 to $151,054. New Milestone!! The majority of the increase came from new TFSA contribution of $6,000 and the rest came from dividends and stocks appreciation.

January was a volatile month with omicron fears, protests, and military tension in Eastern Europe. However, if you look in the past; 2020 and 2021 had similar problems and the markets did incredibly well. Will the markets continue to do well in 2022? We’ll see. I personally don’t think so and the way I’m going to play these markets is by investing in high quality businesses and stick to my long-term plan.

Dividends received in January 2022: $552.64
Dividends received in January 2021: $450.92
Year-Over-Year Dividend Growth: $101.72 or 22.55%
Year-To-Date Dividend Income: $552.64

New Milestone!! I’m very pleased with year-over-year dividend growth. I was able to achieve a double digit growth rate through stock purchases, dividend reinvesting and dividend increases throughout the year.

Ads Revenue
In January, I collected $578.13 in adsense revenue from my YouTube channel. The revenue is down year-over-year and compared to last month because the ad rates are down almost 2x. I had similar number of views last month and I have earned twice as much because ad rates in December were much higher. If you’re wondering what I do with adsense income; I set aside 30% for taxes and the rest goes to the market for accelerated growth.

January 2022 YouTube Stats:
  • Added 1,143 New Subscribers
  • $578.13 Revenue
  • Daily Average $18.65

January 2022 Summary
Portfolio Value: $151,054
Dividend Income: $552.64
AdSense Income: $578.13
Combined Income (excluding day job): $1,130.77
