BNS.TO purchase still added to my April dividend totals, UNA.AS will be paid in June, and the rest in May.

CVS and GIS have been popular picks in DGI community lately, so I'm happy to join the crowd here. Unilever continues to be one of my favorite stocks, even though I had to pay much more now than I did last time. The price jumped after merger proposal by Kraft Heinz (KHC) came public. Unilever turned it down, but share price has just continued climbing. Anyways, I hope and believe that the company will soon declare good news in the form of dividend increase.

Speaking of dividend increases, PG just announced 3% hike. Not huge, but sweet enough, would I say. At least a lot better than 1% hike last year. Energy has not been my favorite sectors lately, but now I made a tiny additional investment there by buying one share of ONEOK. OKE is in process of acquiring its MLP (Master Limited Partnership) ONEOK Partners (OKS). Dividend growth outlook seems pretty fantastic after buyout completed, but how this transforms into reality remains to be seen. One of my riskiest positions for sure.

Thanks for reading. My Portfolio page has been updated to reflect these trades.

Disclosure: Long BNS.TO, EMA.TO, CVS, GIS, HCN, OKE, PG, UNA.AS
