Couting every dividend pennies: update on my annual dividend earnings

Its not easy to be an investor these days. This past Friday, my non-registered portfolio was about to hit on the 130k mark. At $129 297, I was super close! But what was hot and true yesterday is today no more... Today, my non-registered portfolio closed at $125 247.25. What is that??!!! I feel like screaming, just like Adele: HELLO... Yo which I could add: where had gone my money....

I used to be much more glamorous. I used to be a super investment girl. Remember these old days, not so old? Back on date of April of this year, my non-registered portfolio was was at $137 000 - its highest value ever recorded. I was about to hit on $140 000 when everything collapse. What a bad surprise. I can't wait to see a TSX going back to the 15 000 points. Is it too much to ask?

During volatile times, my portfolio goes up and down. And in those hard time, I am not the best investor. When the market is down, I don't like it. I don't feel it as a great time to invest. I am just in the mood to invest. But without investing, my life get very boring and ordinary. Believe it or not, I have $2 000 available to invest and guess what, its not yet invested!!

I hold JFT Strategies Fund (JFS.UN) in both RRSP and non-registered account. I am thinking of adding some more of those gold units one more time in my portfolio, this time in my TFSA. For any investment portfolio, JFT Strategies Fund (JFS.UN) is bullet proof against the stock market volatility. The fact that the stock market goes up and down like crazy barely have any effects on the JFT Strategies Fund (JFS.UN). The capital gain on JFS.UN had been super great. Personally, what I like to do with the JFT Strategies Fund (JFS.UN) is to watch up it gain $510 in capital gain and when it does, girl do her thing, she sell and enjoy the free cash.

I always knew I was going to make my bucks on the back of Jean-François Tardif. HELLO SUPER CASH. In the immediate, my investment in JFS.UN won't bring anything in term of dividend, but I do remember one time when the fund had proceed with a special dividend distribution. When everything collapse around you, JFS.UN just keep going.

Recently, a bad surprise was the lost of Sprott Strategic Fixed Income Fund (SFI.UN) inside my TFSA. Following what, I was curious to see at how much I am at in term of dividend earnings. After calculations, my annual dividend income is of $6 089.34, the equivalent of $507.50 per month. I wasn't earning much from Sprott Strategic Fixed Income Fund (SFI.UN), but still, dividend money being so hard to earn, every penny counts. I was earning $23.50 per year from my old SFI.UN.

I would be very happy to reach a dividend annual income of $12 000. And that make me regret all of the money I had invested in my RRSP. If I could go back in times, I wouldn't invested anything inside my RRSP.

Your annual dividend was higher than that in 2011

Yes it was, for several reasons. My portfolio had changed and some companies had decreased their dividend distribution.
