Today is a special day, its the birthday of Warren Buffett! My investment in Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (BRK.B) grow of 3.93% so far. Apple Inc. (AAPL) is down of 3.43%. With the recent news, I am just very surprise that loses are not bigger. Imagine that: the EU request Apple to pay 13 billion euros to Ireland in taxes!! We'll hear more about this for sure in the upcoming weeks. Today was a very exciting day on the Canadian market.
I made the switch from ADW.B to ADW.A shares in my TFSA. It will give a little punch to my dividend income. Also good news in term of dividend distribution, Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS) decided to be all at my feet and raised its quarterly dividend by two cents a share, to 74 cents a share. Overall, my annual dividend income is now of $6 894.18. Many of my stocks had registered small dividend increased since May 2016. Once it all add up, it make it close to the 7k mark. Very very close. The DRIP also help a lot.
Today biggest news was probably that Agrium Inc. (AGU) is talking about merging with its Canadian competitor Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan Inc. (POT). This mean that AGU and POT would link together and become one single big company. This could be good for shareholders, but not that much for farmers. In the meantime, Agrium Inc. (AGU) decided to please me and sky rock just like that. Bang!
Rich can only get richer, even small stockholders. TSX is number 1, just like Dev brand new song.
