Trade - Buy

I add to a new position Toronto-Dominion Bank (TD)

26 Shares @ 48.20 on 10-10-2014

This will increase my forward 12-months dividend by $43.68 to a total of $1,931.96

I updated my Portfolio to reflect the change.


Here we see that earnings is higher then the price. Also notice that S&P Credit Rating is AA- and TD has no debt.



Here is a estimated total return on 17% in 5 years.


Here we see that TD is undervalue based on its 5 year average. Forward PE is lower then its current PE.


Here we see that the dividend yield is at a high point. To me this means a buy base on this 5 year graph of its divided yield.



Morningstar (***) Fair: $47.00
S&P Capital (****) Fair: $57.90

Like TD at this level? Do you own it?

Dividend Income - September 2014

Once a month I will be updating the dividend that I received for that month.


September 2014 Dividends Received:


  • Realty Income Corp. (O) - $4.02
  • American Rlty Cap. PPTYS (ARCP) - $19.25
  • McDonald Corp (MCD) - $9.72
  • Chevron Corp (CVX) - $21.40
  • International Business Machines (IBM) - $6.60
  • Exxon Mobil Corp (XOM) - $8.97
  • Aflac Inc. (AFL) -$9.25
  • BP plc (BP) - $31.59
  • Target Corp (TGT) - $22.88
  • Ensco (ESV) - $34.50
  • Wells Fargo & Co. (WFC) - $0.35
  • Wal-Mart Stores (WMT) - $7.68


  • Total dividends for the month of September: $176.21

    My goal this year was to receive $2000 in dividends. With this month dividends I received $1,100.55 for the year so far. This give me a percentage of  55% completed for my goal. Since there is only three months left in the year, I have no chance of passing my goal. However, I am looking forward to December dividend income because I will pass $200 for the first time. Can't wait to see that. 

    You can check out the dividend progress Here.

    Had a good month? Hope you did.
