Recent Buy – IPL

BuySell

A quick update on a purchase in my portfolio earlier this week. As expected, the stock market’s decline had a wide implication on already depressed stock prices where I see good value. I decided to take the opportunity to add more shares to an already decent sized position.

Earlier this week, I decided to add 100 shares in Inter Pipeline Ltd (TSE:IPL) @ CAD$22.70. This purchase price locks in a 7.4% yield adding C$168.00 to my annual passive income stream.

I just listed all my Recent Buy Decision during my last purchase a couple of weeks ago, so I will link to that post instead of rehashing the details.

A quick update on another purchase to wrap up January 2018. This time, its a purchase adding to my dividend growth portfolio after a long time. Its been hard to find value in this market, except in the basic materials sector. However, as I mentioned in the Outlook for 2018 post, I am looking to pull some money off the table as I have overextended in this sector of the economy — with my investment portfolio sitting close to 50% in that one sector. I am still bullish on the sector, but looking to deploy funds elsewhere in the economy, and I have been looking at related commodity plays.

For this purchase, I have looked at the energy sector and decided that I could use with some more exposure and increase my annual dividends from an existing company in my portfolio. Continue reading

As the market continues its relentless climb, I have been weary and finding it harder to find some good investment opportunities. The purchases have all but dried up in my portfolio. However, I was finally able to pull the trigger last week when I saw a pretty good opportunity in the energy sector. Midstream/pipelines were one of the best performers in 2016 and the stock picking competition resulted in Top 3 to be pipelines. However, they seemed to have pulled back a bit this year, and I decided to add to my existing position.

I added 100 shares in Inter Pipeline Ltd (IPL.TO) @ C$26.00. The company pays C$1.62 in dividends annually and currently yields 6.15%.

“This marks Inter Pipeline’s thirteenth consecutive dividend increase to its shareholders,” said Christian Bayle, President and Chief Executive Officer. “This increase reflects our record financial performance, driven by significant new cash flow contributions from major organic growth projects completed on our Canadian pipeline systems, as well as the continued strong performance and expansion of our bulk liquid storage business in Europe.”

My portfolio consists of 150 shares of Inter Pipeline Ltd, which increases my annual dividends from $220.50 to $234.00, an increase of $13.50.

A new quarter and I am already putting some of my cash to work. Whenever I make a purchase, I like to share my buys to document and illustrate how I am building my income stream over the course of months/years. My main goal is simply to keep investing at regular intervals and build my passive income over the course of time. In a sort of ways, I am building my own pension, hoping to get to a point where I can simply live off my dividends without touching my principal investment.
