My newest investment proud is definitively ATCO Ltd. (ACO.Y). Toromont Industries Ltd (TIH) is also really great. Sometimes, an investment doesn't rock on right away inside a portfolio. It need to take its air and relax. Others are in the act immediately, and its been the case with my investment in ACO.Y. At this turning point where I am so super close of my first $200 000 net worth, I need to hold on to only the best investments and only the best. I cannot lose money, I need to make money. I need great dividend income distribution. And I am currently at an annual dividend income of $7 322.03 or the equivalent of $610.17 / month - excluding my RRSP distribution.
Its great to keep track of dividend income, but its dangerous at the same time to focus exclusively on dividend distribution. Stock paying over 5% in dividend yield should be considered as dangerous and risky investments. Stock that pay a high dividend income are mostly tempt to reduce their dividend distribution and when a distribution cut is being announced, the stock value usually plunge. And its when you'll lose money. I hold some of those in my investment portfolio. Another thing to know is that my portfolio is a great work of perfection - but its not perfectly perfect. I wouldn't like anyone to actually replicate my portfolio exactly the way it is now. Take the best of me and drop the rest. Learn from my mistakes. But know that ACO.Y is a rocket. Its my newest mine of gold. My newest everything.
ATCO Ltd. (ACO.Y) is a very big company, well diversify in different fields. Its actually difficult for me to resume the activities of the company in a few words, but check it out of their Web site. ATCO also have activities outside Canada. So far, ATCO Ltd gain 1.96% inside my non-registered portfolio. I like to invest in family business that is still being own by a family member. That way, I am being sure that management is really doing everything that is possible to ensure the success of their business.
Among family business that I own in my portfolio, we have: Just Energy Group Inc. (JE), Saputo Inc. (SAP), Loblaw Companies (L), Savaria Corporation (SIS) and Andrew Peller Limited (ADW.A) - just to name those.
