A quick update on a couple of recent purchases in my portfolio. For this round, I added to existing positions.
- First purchase: I added 60 shares of BCE Inc (BCE.TO) @ $53.40. I’ve had my eye on the telecom sector for a while and after a lot of lowball offers that did not get executed, I decided to up my offer a bit and finally got filled. BCE owns interests not only in the telecom, but expanding heavily into the media & content business. With the stock yielding 5.6%, the purchase adds a nice $181.20 in forward annual dividends.
- Second purchase: I added 2000 shares in Auxly Cannabis (XLY.V) @ $1.07. The company has recently undergone some transition and changed name from Cannabis Wheaton Income (CBW) to Auxly Cannabis. Auxly remains a great financier in the field of cannabis and has a great leadership team with Chuck Rifici as CEO. A sector in its infancy, there is immense chatter about buyout and large investment targets, esp with the large alcohol companies targeting Canadian LPs for marijuana-flavored drinks. I am a little disappointed with the price I paid since I was looking to add at $0.75, but my trade didnt get executed (missed it by $0.01), and the following day the stock rallied massively. Still think its a decent price and my ACB remains well under $1.
