TSX 60 Ex-Dividend Date and Update on 2013 Best Dividend stocks



At the beginning of each month, I always publish the TSX60 dividend yield and ex-dividend date. I wanted to add more information to this post so I decided to track my choices of best dividend stocks on a monthly basis as well.


At the beginning of 2013, I picked 30 stocks to be the Best 2013 Dividend Stocks. Last year, I outperformed the XDV by 8% and trailed the VIG by less than 1% (all that because of RadioShack! hahaha). I hope I’ll be able to beat both indexes this year!

I’m currently trailing the index by a few bips but I’m not too worried. Since my overall portfolio pays a dividend over 1% more than the VIG, I’m still beating the index for the current month. The fact that I only have 1 stock in the red is also good news!

I’m starting strong with my picks but I better outperform the index in terms of capital growth since XDV is paying a higher dividend than my portfolio! I’m fairly confident that my picks will beat the index this year again!
