Portfolio Value Update - December 2021

Happy New Year everyone! Wishing you all the best! December 2021 turned out to be the best month of the year. Let’s dive in.

Portfolio Value
In December, my portfolio value increased by $11,536 from $132,167 to $143,703. This was the best performing month of 2021. I expect my portfolio value to grow further in January since I’m adding $6,000 to my TSFA account.

Dividends received in December 2021: $620.15
Dividends received in December 2020: $470.70
Year-Over-Year Dividend Growth: $149.45 or 32%
Year-To-Date Dividend Income: $5,678.34

The dividend income is higher than usual because I received a special dividend of $106 from First National Corp (FN.TO). They usually return excess capital to their shareholders in the end of the year. Otherwise the regular dividend income would be just above $500 which is a new milestone for me. Going forward we should see $500/mo and more.


Stock Trades
December was a busy month for stock trades. You can refer to my previous two posts for all stock trades here and here.

Ads Revenue
In December, I collected $1,079.03 in adsense revenue from my YouTube channel.

December 2021 YouTube Stats:
  • Added 903 New Subscribers
