June 2016: Dividend Update!

    June continued the steady pace of dividends being paid out into my brokerage account. The third month of every quarter has so far consistently been my lowest month for dividends, with mostly just my monthly dividend payers. Although I am slowly working on that with the addition of Manulife Financial to my portfolio this year, and more recently adding again to the position during the Brexit market 'discount'.

Recent Buy! June 2016

    I recently took advantage of the Brexit situation, where the people of the United Kingdom voted on a referendum to completely leave the European Union, with a winning vote of 52%. (BBC) So when North American markets opened on June 24th, they followed the trend of every other major stock market and plummeted. Global markets fell roughly around 3%, and wiped out a whooping 2 trillion  in wealth around the world!
