More about my dividend income goal

I was very confused earlier today about if I had received or not my PIF.UN dividend. Seem like I had received them. I just all confused once again. Because I got the DRIP for Yellow Pages Income Fund (YLO.UN) and didn’t see it. At TD Waterhouse, they had been great at explaining that to me, even if I was calling for only 13.13$. But on the road for financial freedom, every penny count lol.

And here we go, what I like most of all, calculating my dividend income. Here is for my dividend earning update:

Livingston International Income Fund (LIV.UN): 21.28$
Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS): 201.88$
Fortis (FTS): 106.08$
Just Energy Income Fund (JE.UN): 285.22$
Methanex Corporation (MX): 70.56$
Pembina Pipeline Income Fund (PIF.UN): 157.56$
Pengrowth Energy Trust (PGF.UN): 763.20$
Sprott Inc. (SII): 50$ + special dividend of 75$
Yellow Pages Income Fund (YLO.UN): 80.80$
TOTAL: 1 811.58$

My dividend income goal is to reach 2 000$ in dividend value by the end of the summer. Am I going to make it? Let’s see…

2 000$ - 1 811.58$ = 188.42$

At this time, I do not have too much money. Forget about adding Enbridge (ENB) or Bell Alliant in my portfolio for now because I am broke! Right now, a correct issue will be to purchase more units of Yellow Pages Income Fund (YLO.UN). I recently read somewhere that a recent company had rate Yellow Pages Income Fund (YLO.UN) as a buy… So this helps me in my decision to purchase extra units of Yellow Pages Income Fund (YLO.UN). I do not particularly like Yellow Pages Income Fund (YLO.UN) but hey, they are cheap, so why not?

How much Yellow Pages Income Fund (YLO.UN) units I need to meet my goal? Currently, Yellow Pages Income Fund (YLO.UN) dividend is of 0.80 cents per unit, which I find pretty good, knowing the state of the economy right now.

188.42$/0.80 cents = 235.525 units

If I purchase 200 units of Yellow Pages Income Fund (YLO.UN), it won’t be enough…. So I better purchase 300 units. And I have enough in cash to proceed with the transaction. Take a look at this:

5$ (current price per unit for Yellow Pages Income Fund (YLO.UN)) x 300 units =
1 500$ + 27$ in commission fee =
1 527$

Currently, I have 1 301.45$ available on my TD credit line. I am only missing 225.55$ in order to reach the 1 527$ I need to cover the cost of this investment.

I currently have 215.71 left in my banking account…. I am waiting for a paycheck of around 200$ at midnight on Wednesday. That’s tomorrow… On Thursday, I could pay 425.25$ on my credit line and transfer at least 1 527$ on my broker account and purchase 300 extra units of Yellow Pages Income Fund (YLO.UN). It will do a little something like this:

300 units X 0.80 cents = 240$

1 811.58$ current dividend income + 240$ =
2 051.58$

And my goal is reach! This is perfectly realizable. I was thinking about all this while being at work and gees, I keep thinking and I saw finally that yes, I can definitely make it for this summer… It's just I am not going to have anything left in my banking account, but who care, I got another paycheck next week lol. And this will happen before my 29 birthday. I am really having a fun time with all this investment deal. Like me reaching my first 50 000$, and now me reaching my first 2 000$ value in dividend income. It’s pretty awesome.
