Portfolio Value Update - August 2022

Portfolio Value
In August, my portfolio value decreased by $3,108 from $155,506 to $152,398. The first three weeks the markers were performing very well and I had my portfolio almost crossing $160K, but in the last week the markets took a beating and lost about a thousand points which dragged my portfolio value down. At least we have better buying opportunities for September.

Dividends received in August 2022: $642.09
Dividends received in August 2021: $453.41
Year-Over-Year Dividend Growth: $188.68 or 41%
Year-To-Date Dividend Income: $4,788.25

I think this is the third month in a row that I’m hitting over 40% growth rate. This is very exciting and I can’t wait to hit a new milestone.

Bought 22 shares of RioCan REIT (REI.UN.TO) for $21.36 per share
Bought 7 shares of Manulife (MFC.TO) for $24.39 per share

The stock purchases were funded purely from dividends that I received that month. I did not fund the account with my own money as I try to pay off the mortgage sooner and save up for TFSA contributions in 2023.

Ads Revenue
In August, I collected $436.21 in adsense revenue from my YouTube channel. It was a slow month and I uploaded fewer videos than usual.

August 2022 YouTube Stats:
  • Added 874 New Subscribers
  • $436.21 Revenue
  • Daily Average $14.07

August 2022 Summary
