December 2021 Stock Purchases

Hey guys! I bought some stocks recently and wanted to provide a short update. Everything was bought in a taxable account because my TFSA is maxed out. I already saved up enough money to max out my TFSA account in January 2022. In January 2022, the TFSA contribution room goes up by another $6,000.

In total I bought seven companies. This time I wanted to focus on insurance companies and bought three insurance stocks: MFC, GWO, and IAG. I already own MFC so I added a bit to my position, but the other two GWO and IAG are my first buys. Eventually I will add more of GWO and IAG.

Apart from insurance stocks, I also added to my AQN, NFI and TRP positions simply because the prices are too good to pass on. I really like that trio at the current prices.

The last company I bought is The North West NWC. This is an interesting play in the retail sector. I found this company during my screening process. It's basically a value retailer in rural communities in Northern and Western Canada, as well as Alaska, Sought Pacific Islands and Caribbean. Their banner name include North Mart, Giant Tiger, Alaska Commercial, Cost U Less, RiteWay and more. You can think of it as Walmart but up north. It's a small position for now, but eventually I would like to grow it to over a 100 shares.

Here's the screen shot from my brokerage account:


  1. I own MFC, AQN and TRP. NWC is an interesting one. May decide to buy into this company one day.

    Thanks for the update.
