A quick update on a couple of recent buys in the portfolio.
- First purchase: I added to my position in Brookfield Asset Management (BAM.A.TO) @ CAD$44.00 with the recent weakness in stock price. There are still a lot of overhanging questions on the impact of BPY (Brookfield Real Estate subsidiary) on the parent company and how the commercial real estate market will play out, but I decided to incrementally add to my position here.
- Second purchase: I added to my position in Facebook Inc (FB) @ $209.70. The recent backlash against FB from companies to pull ads was a good buying opportunity imo. Some of these companies have stated that this is a pause for just one month, while others have left it open-ended. Regardless, the revenue source is diversified with third party analytics showing that FB’s top 10 advertisers make only 1.5% of total revenue.
- Third purchase: I continued building on my new position of Microsoft Corp (MSFT) @ $193.50. Recently I decided to go up the risk curve a bit and sold off most of my bond allocation & decided moving those funds to one of the two AAA rated companies with a long road of growth ahead. I am close to a full position now, but may add more in the future as my overall portfolio grows and sizing automatically changes.
Full Disclosure: Long BAM.A.TO, FB, MSFT. Our full list of holdings is available here.
