I have all my investment in TD WebBroker. They were late in delivery of their June statements and they only came near the end of July. I found the final tally quite interesting. The value of my portfolio only increased by 0.69% year to date. This is slightly better than the TSX which increased year to date by 0.42%. This is in great contrast to my increase in dividend income which year to date is up by 10.5%.
This is a huge discrepancy between the performance of the value of my portfolio and increase in dividends. The TSX has recovered somewhat from the end of June, but year to date to July 27, 2018 it is still only up by 1.14%. The thing is that the TSX seems stalled, but my companies are increasing dividends.
