Are you on track to making a profit off those stocks?
YTD, KMI and BPL are pretty flat. Others not so much.
AT&T and Bell Canada are the only new ones that I've gotten into during 2015. And of course I have increased my position in quite a few others ones that I've owned for a longer time.
TIVO - buying Aero assets.
Most of the companies I own pay dividends, but for most of them it is an insignificant amount and not the reason I invested in them. For some reason, I always end up with a lot of companies that pay like 1-2% which does nothing except make doing my own taxes more difficult LOL
As long as they keep increasing their dividend payouts (like most of these low yielding ones do) then in the long run it's going to start to show on your income statements.
The last one I bought is POT. The stock has remained relatively stable. Hopefully, fertilizer prices should rise.
AT&T is always a solid investment. My mom has told me that it stays consistent and that is a great quality.
AT&T, just like most telecoms, is good mainly for the dividend income. It's one of those shares that I love to have, you don't really have to worry about the price fluctuation (though it's not going to make huge jumps up either) but you can be sure to enjoy the incoming cashflow from dividends.
