A quick update on three purchases in our portfolios. It is getting harder and harder to find good value plays as the market seems be pushing the boundaries on the valuation front. With a lot of stocks trading close to 52-week highs, pickings have been pretty slim. However, due to an oversized cash position, I decided to pay up and put some capital to work.
- First purchase: I added 200 shares of Kinder Morgan Inc (KMI) @ $19.97. I wrote more about my KMI decision during my last iteration in March. Click here to read about the reasoning. The stock yields 5.0% and adds $200.00 in annual dividends.
- Second purchase: I added 25 shares of Ferrari N.V (RACE) @ $165.35. I wrote more about decision to buy this company earlier in July. Click here to read about the reasoning.
- Third purchase: I added 6 shares of Constellation Software (CSU.TO) @ $1,252.00. Constellation continues to execute well and aggregate small VMS companies led by a brilliant leadership team. A small dividend is paid (yield of 0.4%), but this is a growth-focused stock.
