Welcome to March’s edition of more free money from dividend investing.
Well it has been a very busy month in March. We took a trip to Banff for a conference to continue to learn and be inspired in our home based business. The kids continue to grow and keep us on our toes.
Before I get into a record month here are a few pictures of what we have been up to!

Now let’s see how the portfolio did
I sold no dividend stocks this month
I made a new position in one company
New position in Chesswood Group Limited (CHW.TO) with a purchase of 100 shares at $10.98
Who is Chesswood Group Limited?
Chesswood Group Limited, publicly traded on the Toronto Stock Exchange, is a financial services company operating primarily in the specialty finance industry. Chesswood’s approach to creating long-term value for its shareholders is to acquire financial services businesses that have proven management teams with market positions poised for growth, and to enhance these strengths through the provision of strategic, operating and financial support.
To tell you the truth this company wasn’t even on my radar and when I was doing some value searching this one caught my eye. Their return on revenue and return on income was very impressive last year. They also carry only 1 year earnings debt which I like due to the interest rates starting to creep up. Earnings per share in the fourth quarter were higher than the first three quarters combined. This company should be trading around $14-$15 which I would call a nice discount at where it is right now. They pay a juicy dividend of just over 7.5%. With this purchase it will bring in about $63.00 in dividend income for the remaining 2018 calendar year and of course that is if they keep the dividend where it is at.
2016 – 2017 – 2018 Dividends
A record setting month as this is the highest amount of dividends received ever with $223.52. This is an increase of over 64% from last best month that was December. Really looking forward to what June will look like!

What could i get for $223.52? Now were talking as this amount can actually buy something. However it still does not cover a mortgage payment so I’ll reinvest every penny until the number starts to pay enough that working is no longer something I have to do and it can be a choice.
What do you think of my recent purchase?
Still finding it very difficult to find fairly priced stocks, may start to increase cash for the next correction that looks like it’s not too far away.
Do you feel the same way?
