    • If I had more cash, I would’ve bought when it dropped to $93 level couple of weeks ago. Oh well…I will simply enjoy the bump for now.

      BNN just reported the following a few minutes ago:
      “Agrium CEO on Value Act investment:
      – Says relationship still evolving
      – Talks “friendly”
      – They like $AGU strategic plan”

      Hopefully something good will come off this investment.

  1. R2R,

    if it wasn’t a Canadian stock I would already own a bunch of it. I like the company but I am not willing to go through the withholding tax related paperwork.

    I am happy for you, though.

    Keep it up!

    • Ah. I forget that you guys probably dont have favorable taxes for Canadian companies. I noticed that you own some US companies – do you have favorable tax treatment for the US companies?

      Thanks for stopping by

    • Yeah I guess most of their operations are based in the US even though they are a Canadian company. According to the reporting, 77% of their revenue comes from US.
      Good for us – a better dividend with a strong US$

      Enjoy the raise, fellow shareholder 🙂
