    I do have a margin account and based on the money I borrowed I am paying interest. Some of the shares that I am holding are paying dividends every quarter and some do not. During a year some of shares dispositioned (maybe even before paying dividends) but I have always received dividends...

    I'm trying to advise a young person on long term investing. I'm very much a drip investor. I like how when the market is sinking you don't need to panic because you'll get your dividends reinvested at a lower price and maybe pick up even more shares. So for me, it helps to protect myself from...

    I'm investing for a long stretch; at least 10-20 years. My stock picks are all dripped and many are solid blue chip (all Canadian). I've got stocks like Royal Bank, TD and Enbridge. However, included are those that give low yields like Stella Jones (0.61%) and CCL (0.67%). When I retire and...

    Hey I just wanted to look on the forums for some second opinions on this stock and didn't see any other threads for it. At the last closing price the yield is 6.78% and the payout ratio has moved under 100% after their second royalty acquisition. Annual royalties received with the two current...

    With interest rates in Canada being near all time lows should I try to pay down my mortgage as fast as possible, or pay it off slower and invest the difference? My mortgage is up in July. The current lowest rate I can find is: 2.15% variable, 5 year term, 20% prepayment. My mortgage in July...

    Just wondering if anyone else out there holds these? Your thoughts? I'm looking to purchase in my margin account. I have no room in my RRSP or TFSA. Is there something equivalent here in Canada besides RID? I'm really looking for an international dividend player that is not to heavily...

    Did a search but didn't find much useful. What are folks thoughts on Yellow Media Inc (YLO)? Their share price has dropped considerably, but they are still paying a consistent dividend (although that has been lessened due to the restructuring from a trust to a corporation). I'm treating this...
