    Just got caught up a little bit on this one, nice thread and great concept. I also track what I call "potentially sustainable portfolio income".

    There should actually be no withholding tax on interest either, just 15% on dividends (assuming the US ETF holds US equities. If hold stuff from other countries, it's a bit of a different ball game).

    To put it as simply as possible: the first $500,000 of taxable business income earned by a corporation is subject to small business tax rates. Anything earned above that is subject to general...

    One potential use I've seen is to help bridge the gap for those dreaming of living on dividend income while also filling in for the "fixed income" component.

    This isn't something you want to jump into, but if it were me I would look at adding some low-moderate risk options strategies. You can write some pretty high probably covered calls or puts to...

    I'm sure the paperwork can very ab it, but I'm pretty sure it just happens as a transfer in kind to their brokerage. They issue the receipt for the FMV of the securities transferred. They can then...

    My guess is they're playing fast and loose with semantics a bit. The latest increase would be bring the total annual increase from this time last year to 7%. In June 2016 the dividend was $0.46 x...

    It's making my head hurt watching you two argue over two completely different things.

    I guess another thought is, if you're paying down the mortgage aggressively as you've stated, the lowest possible rate now tends to make more sense. That is to say, by the time a rate hike might...

    I know there was the tongue and cheek comment on poor houses and debtor's prisons, but I would like to see more subsidized necessities as a replacement for welfare.
    In a perfect world, everyone...

    I'm usually variable all the way, but in this environment and with a tight spread (0.3% isn't much) I might lean towards fixed.
    Aside from the risk the bank of Canada raises the overnight rate,...
