Five Buys In Two Days

Hello friends, today’s post is all about the stocks I bought last Friday and this past Monday. Last week we seen the markets take a turn downward and create some buying opportunities. Being in my mid 30’s, and being a dividend investor I wasn’t concerned about what the market was doing. I try to look to add to my positions in stocks or start a new invest. Last week I had the following motto.


For my time horizon being about 30 years before I retire I thought this was the perfect motto. In my opinion if you have a long time horizon you should buy during downturns never sell.

I made two purchases on Friday and three on Monday I will post them in the order that I purchased them.

Buy #1 (TFSA Account)

Yes folks another purchase of Canadian Utilities, the stock is now trading under $30 and I think that is a buying opportunity.


Bought 21 shares @ $29.56 for a total cost of $630.71


This purchase will increase my quarterly income by $8.26 and $33.04 annually.


Buy #2 (RRSP Account)

Power Corp is another stock that I like. The stock hasn’t really moved much over the last few years usually sitting under $30 but I feel that the future is bright and the stock will climb over time. I made this purchase to lower my average cost per share.

The Purchase

I bought 63 shares @ $27.10 for a total cost of $1,717.25. With this buy my average cost drops from $29.09 to $28.63.


My quarterly income increases $24.07 and $96.28 annually.

Yes I bought another bank lol. With this buy I now own five, I think this will be my last one but you never know. I purchased ScotiaBank for two reasons. The first being their operations in South America (Chile, Peru and Colombia) and Mexico. The second reason is the stock has been falling and I found it to be a buying opportunity.

The Purchase

I bought 27 shares @ $71.53 for a total cost of $1,941.26


ScotiaBank pays a quarterly dividend of $0.85 so the purchase will provide me $22.95 quarterly and $ 91.80 annually.

  1. Hey Matt! You’re spending money like a BOSS! I like your buys at these levels. Out of the five stocks you bought, I only own CU. But I’m also interested in BNS and POW. This week I’m looking to add some Emera shares to lower my average cost and to build a solid position. Can’t wait to see the impact on your dividend income from new buys.
