There! Recently I became a little concerned about how my January dividends are shaping up. Here AGU, BNS and WPC purchases will help in that matter. I'm looking to add even more these stocks before ex-dividend date. I still have rather light position in all three, so I will be buying more with pleasure. In turn with ES purchase I gave a little push towards this year's dividends, as the company should pay in December.

The broader market has been in strong bull mode this week. Next purchases can be painful to make if this continues. On the other hand prices in BNS, AGU, WPC, still don't look that bad compared to what I have paid here. Okay, that's all for now. But soon it will be time to summarize November dividends which should be fun!
My Portfolio page has been updated to reflect these trades.

Disclosure: Long AGU.TO, BNS.TO, WPC, ES


  1. Another great set of purchases. Dont have to convince me about AGU and BNS - I own those stocks in my portfolio. WPC - Ive looked at it in the past and it appears to be a very strong company. Ive been looking at utilities as well and ES looks good.


    1. Hi R2R. It's great to be a fellow shareholder in AGU and BNS.
      Have not owned WPC for long, but have surely enjoyed the dividends.
      ES doesn't look cheap, but it's doing its job for me.
      Thanks again for your visit and comment!

  2. I also was making a purchase for January and considered AGU but ultimately went with NJR. Cheers

    1. Captain, yes, I liked that NJR purchase. Looks like you found a perfect replacement for PNY there.
      Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Solid buys Dividend Lord. Would love to add more AGU and BNS to our portfolio.

    1. Hey Tawcan, thanks! I hear you there. I still have too small position in AGU and BNS, and looking to buy more too. That said, Agrium's fly today is a little bit painful to see!
      Thanks for dropping by.
