The dog days of summer are here. Here in Ottawa Canada, we’ve been setting records of sweltering heat…on Canada Day (July 1st), we hit 47°C with humidex!! More importantly, the hot stock market in the US continues its streak with no letdown in sight. While Tech grabs all the headlines, its the Consumer Discretionary that topped the returns for the first half of 2018. Outlook for July 2018My portfolio’s exposure to the Materials sector had crossed the 50% mark earlier this year, and I decided that I had to pull back and start selling some of my positions in order to manage my risk exposure. Even after a few sales over the past 2-3 months, the increased returns keep my portfolio close to 50% mark (see the stock diversification chart below) and I will be looking to taking more profits in coming months, while maintaining an overweight position to the sector.50% is a line I have drawn in sand that I do not want to cross when it comes to exposure to a single sector of the market. There are...

A stock with a high yield doesn't mean much if the dividend is cut or eliminated, and the stock price declines significantly. Sometimes it is desirable to accept higher risk for a higher yield. Other times we may be accepting higher risk and are not being adequately compensated for the additional risk. What can we do to help gauge the risk of an individual stock? In my dividend database I track over 200 stocks, with most having a minimum of 10 years of historical information. This data is gathered from various sources deemed reliable. Most data is generic and can be pulled from various internet sites. I then combine this information into metrics that I consider relevant in determining the stocks ability to sustain and grow its dividend. Risk is one of the key factors I look at. Risk can have as many definitions as the number of people you ask to define it. Ultimately, we are trying to access how likely is it that something bad will or will not happen. As a quantitative first pass,...

Something I love about dividend growth investing is that each month I get to hear about companies I own deciding to pay me more money in dividends.  Just for owning a small portion of said companies.  Not going and doing R&D for new products or technology.  Not selling any products.  Not managing any employees or inventory.  Not making sales calls.  All I had to do was have the foresight to invest some of my savings in excellent companies.  That's dividend growth investing at work!  I mean who doesn't like getting a raise for doing nothing?  Dividend growth investing is far from a get rich quick investment strategy, rather you need to remain focused on the long term goal to be successful.On Thursday the Board of Directors at Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) gave shareholders a pay raise.  The dividend was increased from $0.40 up to $0.44 per share per quarter.  That's a solid 10.0% increase.  Walgreens has...

Microsoft (MSFT) was founded by Bill Gates and Paul Allen on April 4, 1975. Gates and Allen were childhood friends with a passion for computer programming. The original purpose of the company was to develop and sell BASIC interpreters for Altair 8800. In 1972, well before Microsoft, the duo founded their first company, named Traf-O-Data, which provided a computer that tracked and analyzed street traffic data. It seems that this titan of technology has been with us forever. As with many long-lived organizations, there are interesting tidbits that are not well publicized. Below are several fun facts about Microsoft: 1. Microsoft Was Originally Hyphenated As "Micro-Soft" As noted in an October 1995 Fortune Article by Brent Schlender, Paul Allen came up with the original name of "Micro-Soft." The name was a combination "microcomputer" and "software." By November 1976 the name lost its hyphen when "Microsoft" was officially registered as a company. 2. MS-DOS Was Not Microsoft's...

A quick update on a recent purchase in my portfolio. This round is a new position in my portfolio. Although I have been pulling back from the Basic Materials sector since the sector has grown to a big part of my overall portfolio, I find some good lucrative businesses to invest in, as the sector still remains one of the most undervalued sectors of the economy. I initiated a new position in Equinox Gold (EQX.V).I bought the company in two tranches, first in May and the second earlier this month. I own a total of 2,000 shares with an average cost basis of C$1.05.Recent Buy DecisionA company chaired by Ross Beaty, a legend in the mining sector. Ross Beaty is a serial entrepreneur, who has started, run, grown and sold a series of successful businesses over the past few decades.
