We proceed to greenback price common into high quality dividend shares, whereas additionally placing some money apart for the top of the winter. (I’ve talked about how I believe banks, reits and many others are going to be in for a tough winter because of financial pressures)


At first of December we went on a household journey with the youngsters to the Dominican. Was a good time to calm down, drink quite a bit, eat quite a bit and absorb the solar. Our flight again bought delayed a number of instances and ended up being delayed over 7 hours. Sunwing gave us some meals vouchers for the airport and handed us a pamphlet saying we could possibly be eligible for 250 again per particular person for the delay. I attempted making use of for that on the location however bought instructed we received’t get something as a result of it was a security problem.

We bought them nonetheless fairly a little bit of stuff but it surely appears the times of all these tiny polly pockets and many others are over! That’s superior since I discover myself all the time cleansing up all these small toys.

I gained fairly a little bit of weight from the journey and Christmas however my gymnasium is within the storage and its too chilly, I haven’t been motivated to push weights. So we determined to purchase a Bowflex final 2. I had a really fundamental bowflex approach again and cherished it however maxed the weights and bought it at no cost weights.

Up to now since I joined we received 7-2 and tied the most effective staff 6-6 the opposite day. I’m not gonna say I’m the goat or something, however we’re undefeated since… haha

My legs and muscle tissue wanted the bowflex and hockey. I’m glad to be again. One in every of my principal targets for 2023 is to get to 190 lbs. I’m at present 213. Whereas my dad bod is aigghht, it could possibly be tigghht. Know what I’m saying? haha Let’s go!

December Inventory Purchases/ Gross sales

Let’s begin this off with 1 sale.

Franco Nevada

We bought our place already in Franco Nevada. This one simply ran up so quick from once I purchased it and at over 194 per share, I didn’t see us wanting so as to add to the place. We purchased 12 shares Sept 8 for 158 per share, so we locked in a 24% achieve in roughly 4 months. This sale misplaced $15.36 in ahead revenue.

Td Financial institution

This can be a inventory I all the time appreciated however bought off once I deleveraged the portfolio. I proceed to suppose financial institution inventory costs will get damage shifting ahead however needed to begin averaging again into our place after they introduced that 8% dividend increase in November. The proceeds of the franco nevada sale and new money had been used right here.

We purchased 44 shares of Td financial institution at $86.33 per share. Now you could be questioning, however Rob you bought your place in td earlier than at 84.90 per share. That’s a nasty play. Sure within the quick time period it’s however like I discussed above I believe we are going to get td even cheaper in 2023. I bought 194 shares, this buy is barely 1 / 4 of what I had. I’m simply beginning to common again into our place.

This buy added $168.96 to our ahead dividends.

In complete we added $153.60 in future passive revenue this month.


A part of the rationale for my sale of Franco Nevada was that I’m additionally hedging in opposition to the greenback with our bitcoin place. As I’ve acknowledged earlier than that is purely a speculative funding and I received’t be throwing giant stacks at it.

My plan for bitcoin is 100 to begin and 20 bucks added each week. I’ll replace how issues are going each month.

Whole invested – $230




I made a decision to go together with shakepay as a result of it’s regulated in Canada and also you shake the cellphone each day to get some free sats (bitcoin). I shake on a regular basis and with a forty five day streak, I’m now getting about 6 cents a day in free bitcoin.

Enhance Dividends by $4285.81 this 12 months. (bringing our ahead revenue from dividends to $13,000 a 12 months)

Sadly I’m going to ignore this now. Whereas we may of been actually near hitting this, issues modified. I’m not as bullish in the marketplace and with rates of interest doubling in 6 months (and nonetheless rising) I made a decision to repay all our heloc which we used for investing. So long as the ahead passive revenue is larger at yr finish vs final yr, its all good!
