Whenever I make a purchase, I like to share my buys to document my journey towards financial independence. As regular readers are aware, I have broken from the pack of DGI and sold some of my investments to move to a cash position. I shared details on my motivation to do so in this post. In that post, I have indicated that I am bullish only on one sector currently — the resource/materials sector, and more specifically gold and silver.
As part of my first moves, I had initiated positions in two silver-focused companies — a streaming company: Silver Wheaton Corp (SLW.TO) and a mining company: Pan American Silver Corp (PAA.TO). Unless you’ve been living under a rock, I’m sure you have noticed the meteoric rise in silver over the first half of the year. Silver still continues to perform very well and still presents the best investment outlook compared to other options. I reinforced my position by adding more shares last week.
I added to my position in Silver Wheaton Corp (SLW.TO) with 50 shares @ C$31.50. The company yields 0.8% adding US$10 to my annual passive income. Nothing to write home about. But as I mentioned in earlier posts, this move is not about dividends.
I usually present my thesis on why I bought a particular investment security and present the risks associated in the Recent Buys posts. In this case, I will simply link to my last post on Silver Wheaton purchase as nothing has changed as far as the outlook goes since my last purchase.
Full Disclosure: Long PAA.TO, SLW.TO. My full list of holdings can be found here.
