My Portfolio

I’ve been getting some messages recently concerning my portfolio holdings. More specifically, how mush is invested into each of my positions. While I have posted my end of year report which contains the total portfolio worth and you could reverse calculate the number of shares I have based on the dividends/share by looking at a few months dividend updates, I’ll make this much easier. Here is how my portfolio currently stands.


All prices will be in Canadian dollars and the number of shares include the DRIPed shares acquired in February (where applicable).

Format will be as follows:

Name (TICKER) – # Shares – Price-per-share – Market Value

Here goes:


  • Enbridge Income Fund Holdings (ENF) – 63 – $28.04 – $1,766.52
  • Far Resources (FAT) – 13,520 – $0.53 – $7,165.60
  • Financial 15 (FTN) – 1,453 – $10.55 – $15,329.15
  • Park Lawn Corp (PLC) – 656 – $23.08 – $15,140.48
  • Saputo (SAP) – 59 – $40.67 – $2,399.53
  • Sienna Senior Living (SIA) – 95 – $17.51 – $1,663.45
  • Savaria (SIS) – 552 – $16.66 – $9.196.32

There’s no denying it, I need to diversify more. Currently a huge chunk of my RRSP is in FTN which is great in terms of making money with dividends. While I don’t intend on selling any FTN just yet, I will have to purchase elsewhere and dilute my FTN position.

Game Plan!

You know me, I love having objectives and checkpoints set up. It makes me feel more in control. I’m always tweaking things and constantly looking to optimize my portfolio so in the short-to-medium term, I plan on:

  1. Increasing my T, SIA, DRG.UN and SAP positions
  2. Re-initiating my Boralex (BLX) position. (see Master Plan)
  3. Increasing some of my US positions (UL, O)
  4. Initiating NEW US positions (DEO, PFE, ABBV, NRZ, MMM) to increase my diversification.
  5. Initiating a position in a dividend paying Emerging Markets ETF (such as VWO) to gain some much-needed exposure into the sector.
  6. Selling my smaller CDN RRSP positions (SIS, DRG.UN, MRU, ATD.B, ENF) and buying the exact same positions in my TFSA with new capital (when such capital becomes available) while allocating the free RRSP cash to US stocks (point No.4). This will most likely occur later on in 2018 or even early 2019.

So there you have it, a little snapshot of my portfolio. Let me know what you guys think about it and if you have any suggestions regarding it or regarding the Emerging Markets ETF particularly.

  1. We have a few of the same names (Couche Tard, FAT).

    Have you ever considered an ETF? Personally I enjoy the stock picking in my TFSA (all canadian stocks) but don’t have the time or knowledge of global/us stocks so I use an ETF that is all world Exluding Canada for my RRSP.

    I think you are right about diversifying though – hot damn that’s a high % in FTN..haha.

    Good luck with your master plan -i’ll keep watching your updates 🙂

    • Thanks! Yeah I did consider one but I absolutely love being in control of my investments as much as I can. It could be a could buffer to include one as well, can’t hurt really. Yeah FTN is killer in dividend income too so I absolutely love it haha. Thanks for reading/commenting. Cheers

  2. In addition it might be worth looking at sector diversification. It looks like almost all dividend achievers/aristocrats tend to be in industrial or consumer sector. So there is the risk of investing in a particular sector. Adding ETFs even if a small % of the portfolio might be useful diversification technique 🙂

  3. Never heard of ftn but shit that dividend is huge! Didnt read up to much about them. Are you worried about that high of dividend yield?

    Anyways seems like great moves selling the canadian stocks in rrsp and buying in tfsa. Etfs are great for diversification. Id like to add a international or emerging markets one sometime too.

    Keep it up

    • Haha yes it is absolutely huge! It doesn’t worry me at all actually. The only problem imo is the proportion of my portfolio that it’s taking up. It’s a Split Share fund and it doesn’t work like a usual stock. My current yield on Cost for FTN is 17.65% and it keeps climbing rapidly with every DRIPed share. Thanks for reading!


  4. Hey Dividend Investor, looks like a decent portfolio to me – and of course the stand out is that big holding in FTN! But if that’s one you want to hold for the long-term, then I’d just focus on diversifying over time buy growing your other holdings. Personally, I don’t stress too much about diversification, I just focus on the businesses and stocks I believe most in, and happy to have a few bigger holdings rather than lots of little ones.

    The Emerging Markets ETF sounds like a good way to broaden your exposure, even thought the management fees are usually higher. I’m just curious as to why it’s ‘much needed’? If your goal is maximum diversification, then I get it, but the other approach is to stick to what you know and like 🙂

    All the best with the game plan either way – never a dull moment in the investment world!

    Cheers, Frankie
