So, I continued on the buying front on the second half of April. I thought that I should report these buys before rather interesting dividend summary from April. Actually in my last purchase post there were CVS Health Corporation (CVS) and Unilever NV (UNA.AS). So is this a mistake you might ask. Well, it is not. CVS and UNA.AS are two my favorite stocks this year, and I would guess that they will see the biggest amounts of fresh capital in my portfolio. Alongside Welltower Inc (HCN), which is a new position for me this year, and possible other new position. Also Target Corporation (TGT) was on my shopping list at this time.
Happy Easter everybody! All right then, let's see what I have been buying from mid March till mid April. I typically make small purchases frequently, and this time is no exception. All these are additions to my existing positions: The Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS.TO), Emera Inc (EMA.TO), CVS Health Corporation (CVS), General Mills Inc (GIS), Welltower Inc (HCN), ONEOK Inc (OKE), The Procter & Gamble Company (PG) and Unilever NV (UNA.AS).
While the second quarter of 2017 is well underway, let's see my dividend totals from March. Looking one year back, in March 2016 I managed to collect $150.30. Since then Avista Corp (AVA), Chevron Corp (CVX), Norfolk Southern Corp (NSC) and Textainer Group Holdings (TGH) have left my portfolio. But, Amgen Inc (AMGN) and Canadian Utilities (CU.TO) have arrived to replace those positions. Yes, quite a lot of re-adjustment has been going on. In total 16 companies paid dividend to me this month. Here is the comparison table of March 2016 and 2017 dividends:
