I am now at an investment portfolio of 56 622.36$

I now have reach 56 622.36$ in investment. Really fantastic. I am very happy with my brand new investment – 100 units of Bell Aliant Regional Communications Income Fund (BA.UN) I purchase earlier this week.

I have 18 019.62$ in debts. I calculate the amount of interest I will pay for a full year, and it make 885.56$... Which is not enormous, but still…

Sadly, here are my debts: :)

Student loan: 8 719.08$ at 4.75%
TD credit line: 2 718.76$ at 8%
TD Visa: 1 681.78$ at 4.9% for 6 months
New credit line: 4 900$ at a super low interest!
TOTAL: 18 019.62$

I will be working at paying my debts in the upcoming months; I just have to stop buying stocks or units whenever some money becomes available on my credit line…

Imagine it : the interest rate on my new credit line is lower than the one of my student loan! Isn’t fantastic? So here is the plan: to pay off my TD credit line, after pay of my TD Visa at 4.9% and after, pay off my student loan. I can achieve this in about 6 months or so… I will have to watch out my expenses carefully and slow down on coffees, junk and everything else…

At this point, since my stocks and units portfolio is slowly taking form, it’s important to pay off some debts and more important part is that I need to remain debt free and stop investing using my credit line. It’s very difficult for not to invest and just pay off debts… I find paying debts very boring because it doesn’t bring anything new to my portfolio.

And talking about my investment portfolio, let’s upgrade our yearly dividend income!! Yeahhh

Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS): 104 stocks x 1.96$ = 203.84$
Fortis (FTS): 103 stocks x 1.04$ = 107.12$
Just Energy Income Fund (JE.UN): 408 units x 1.405$ = 573.24$
Methanex Corporation (MX): 103 stocks x 0.685$ = 70.56$
Pembina Pipeline Income Fund (PIF.UN): 404 units x 1.56$ = 630.24$
Pengrowth Energy Trust (PGF.UN): 6 units x 0.84$ = 5.04$
Sprott Inc. (SII): 503 stocks x 0.10$ = 50.30$
Yellow Pages Income Fund (YLO.UN): 415 units x 0.80$ = 332$
Bell Aliant Regional Communications Income Fund (BA.UN): 100 units x 2.892$ = 289.20$

TOTAL: 2 261.54$
(average of 188$ per month)

My goal was to reach the equivalent of 200$ in dividend. I can easily say the goal will be reach in 2010, because of the DRIP I am register to with BNS, FTS, JE.UN, MX, PIF.UN, SII and YLO.UN. With those DRIP, I should earn an extra 100$. It’s not anytime soon I will be able to retired lol, but its fun to try to…. Early retirement on the way... 911
