  1. Solid performance for your November dividends whether in USD or CAD terms. I think everyone was amazed by that SBUX raise. Shows this company is still in major growth mode. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Nice job. You might still hit or at least come close to your annual income target. Considering the changes you’ve made to your portfolio, it’s really impressive that you’re so close. Nice work.
