Recent buys $ACO.X $ATD.B $CUF.UN

Like I said last time, I have been quite busy working these past couple of weeks. Gotta earn it before you can invest it, right? With Mr Market being more cooperative with value investors I still managed to find some time to make a few small buys along the way.

ATCO (ACO.X)

(more on ATCO here)

On May 4th, I added 15 shares of my fairly new acquisition of ATCO. @ 44.02$ a share, the total cost was 670. 25$

I now own 80 shares of ATCO. My average cost per share is 46. 91$.

I might buy some more if the stock goes below 40$.

These 15 new shares add 14.85 $ to my annual dividend income.


Alimentation Couche-Tard (ATD.B)

Couche-Tard is a convenience store operator in the United States, Europe and Canada. It operates its convenience store and road transportation fuel retailing chain under several banners. Its network comprised 6,207 convenience stores throughout North America, including 4,698 stores with road transportation fuel dispensing. 

This company has been a real rocket. The only downside, the meagre dividend. But the price of this stock as doubled ans tripled these past couple of years. I thought I had bought it too late at 29$ in July 2014... The stock price is now 46 $.

On May 6th, I bought 15 shares of ATD.B at 45.50$ for a total cost of 692.45$

I now own 60 shares of Couche-Tard. My average cost per share is 37.84$.

I might buy some more if the stock goes below 42$.

These 15 new shares add 3$ to my annual dividend income.

Cominar REIT (CUF.UN)

(more on Cominar here)

REIT's in general have taken a beatdown lately. I thought the timing was right to add a few units of Cominar.

On May 11th, I bought 30 units of CUF.UN at 18.57$ for a total cost of 567.05$

I now own 150 Units of Cominar. My average cost per share is 18.63$

I might buy some more if the stock goes below 18$.

These 30 new shares add 44.10$ to my annual dividend income.

My Portfolio has been updated as well as my Passive Income Page.

What do you think of my latest buys? Did you make a move yourself?

My April Dividend Income Summary

April 2015 is now history and it's that time again for a Dividend Income Summary of the Month.

As you can see on my Passive Income page, April is one of my lowest dividend paying months of the year with 7 companies chipping in.

These companies are strong and reliable ones but some of them are very cheap on their dividend distributions. Feel pointed out CP and Couche-Tard? You should!

Nevertheless, I still managed to collect 138.95$. 

My Dividends came from:
  • REIT Cominar (CUF.UN) : 14.70$
  • Alimentation Couche-Tard (ATD.B) : 2.03$
  • BCE (BCE) : 26.00$ 
  • Canadian Pacific (CP): 14.00$
  • Kraft (KRFT) : 28.26$ (CA$)
  • Mondelez (MDLZ) : 19.96$ (CA$)
  • Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS) : 34.00$
My total Dividend paid for 2015 : 773.77$

My Total Dividend paid since I started Dividend Investing : 10 329.48$ + 138.05$ = 10 467.53$

What do you think of my dividend income stream? Would you be able to cope with companies such as CP and ATD.B who are not dividends oriented?
