Hi guys It has been awhile but I finally made a purchase. When shopping whether on the stock market or at the grocery store I always look for sales. Last Friday I purchased shares in Boardwalk REIT.
Description of Boardwalk REIT

On November 11, 2016 last Friday I purchased 24 shares of Boardwalk REIT (Ticker TSX: BEI.UN). This is my second purchase of Boardwalk back in February 2016 I purchased 70 shares. Last week when I made the purchase the stock was down 8.33%, last week was a tough week for REIT (Real Estate Investment Trust) investors. Boardwalk had a worse week than others because of a bad 3rd Quarter (I will do a post in a couple of weeks about 3rd Quarter), however I still believe in the company as they continue to develop new properties and purchase more as well.
24 shares @$43.80 =$1,051.20 + $9.99 (trading cost) =$1,061.19
In February 2016 I purchased 70 shares @$42.39 and with the latest purchase I now have a total of 94 shares with an average cost of $42.86.
The stock today yields 5.21%. Boardwalk pays a monthly dividend of $0.1875 (Annual $2.25). My recent purchase will add $4.50 to my income for the remainder of 2016, and in 2017 it will increase my income by $54 if the dividend remains the same.
So what do you think of my purchase?
Thank you for reading I appreciate it. Please share if you like my post.
