Welcome to my February 2014 monthly passive income update. This is part of the series where I track my monthly dividends and other sources of passive income. Passive income for the month of February 2014 was $339.87.
My passive income YTD is $646.33 and achieves 16.15% of my 2014 goal of $4,000. This month's passive income is 301.41% higher than a year ago (my February 2013 passive income was $84.67).
Passive income contributing entities:
My "other" sources of passive income have been growing this year as part of my plan to grow that revenue stream in 2014. The breakdown of my passive income contributing entities is shown below: My dividends totaled $225.01 and my other passive income totaled $114.86 in February.
February saw a number of dividend increase announcements from my portfolio holdings.
Over the course of the month, I have initiated, added and closed some positions. The following are the details of my portfolio changes.
I initiated a new position in Rogers Communications Inc (RCI.B.TO). Rogers is a diversified communications and media company and together with BCE Inc. and Telus Corp forms The Big-3 in Canada. Rogers is Canada's largest provider of wireless and data communications services and also one of the leading providers of cable television, high-speed Internet and telephony services. Rogers had been on my watchlist for a while and a 5% stock price drop on the day of the earnings release was the perfect opportunity to initiate a new position. Details can be found here.
I added to my positions in:
As part of my portfolio balancing exercise merged with my wife's portfolio, I decided to close my position in VUS.TO and ZCN.TO. We plan to move all index funds to her portfolio, so I closed positions to these equities in my portfolio.
