Markets continue to move higher with some critics placing the reason on renewed hopes of an additional COVID relief package from Congress. I cannot control the market but I can control what I buy and sell. Here is a summary of what I bought or sold this week:
- Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS) – increased position – I bought a small position a couple weeks ago and added another small buy as it hovers in the low $40s with a 6.3% yield.
- AT&T (T) – increased position – Not the best dividend growth stock but a 7.3% yield is nothing to sneeze at. Only downside is dividend growth over the last few years has been less than the rate of inflation, but the high yield compensates for now.
- Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) – increased position – WBA is currently a very small position in my portfolio. With 45 years of dividend growth and a 5% yield its time to add more shares.
