Dividend Increase!

Just a quick post today, but one of the reasons I invest in dividend paying investments has happened today - a dividend increase of 5% (from $0.61 per share to $0.64 per share) from the Royal Bank of Canada. The entire article can be seen here. I will now be earning a total of $237.80 in dividends from the Royal Bank. A happy day in dividend investing land as the power of compounding shows its magic. The chart below shows my dividends that I will receive per year from all my investments:

To make things even more fun, I just checked my account and the Royal Bank just deposited a dividend payment of $56.66. This money will be reinvested into more Royal Bank stock on the next dividend reinvestment date with Canadian Shareowners Association.

Wish I had bought Royal Bank when it was trading around $60 earlier this year. Frankly, I am really surprised that they turned around their results so quickly. Shows the folly of forecasting, eh?

Yes it has been a good ride. I have been very impressed with management and their focus on turning the U.S. side of the business around.

I'm moderately jealous. My BNS earnings came out, nice numbers, but no dividend increase. wait wait wait :)

I am going to be looking at BNS in the near future (as well as the other Canadian banks) because I would like to potentially add one more to my portfolio. I will post my results when I do.
