I have very small positions in both.CANADIAN UTILITIES LIMITED ELIGIBLE DIVIDENDS (newswire.ca)
ATCO Ltd. Eligible Dividends (newswire.ca)
These are barely increases especially in the current inflationary environment. Helps affirm my decision to sell CU at the end of 2021. That being said an increase is better than a cut.
My position was less than 1% as well. Totally bond like and a good yield at around 5%. I was overweight utilities and didn't want to trim another position in that sector.I have very small positions in both.
Maybe 1% of my portfolio in each. I had thought about selling, too. But then I thought it was such a small portion of my portfolio, I just treat them more like bond proxies.
But I don't think you're wrong.
Anyway, hey. I'll take the increase, even if it is small.
I really messed up on Emera.My position was less than 1% as well. Totally bond like and a good yield at around 5%. I was overweight utilities and didn't want to trim another position in that sector.
What low div, high growth stocks are worth looking at now? I did a bit of the same.That's always how it goes. I regret not buying low div high dividend growth stocks when I started DIY. As such I avoided low yield stocks like the Canadian Rails, Alimentation Couche-Tarde etc. I read a ton of articles on how low yield high dividend growth outperforms divdend stocks but I wanted to see that dividend income in my account each quarter. Hindsight is 20-20. We tend to focus on what we should have done but the reality is you've made some good choices over the years and have done well. We can always find a reason to kick ourselves. Be glad you got in $15 lower.
I own both CNR and CP, but I don't feel it's such a bad idea to remove the guys that were responsible for the ill advised, and expensive failed takeover attempt of U.S. railway KCS last year?She would not be my choice to lead anything but a government program. There were 2 much better candidates to pick, going this route makes me worried...I'm all out this morning. Just my opinion. Swapping now to CP will most likely not hurt me should I be wrong .
