Portfolio Value Update - May 2021

Portfolio Value
I can’t believe it’s already June! Summer! It’s time to report my May progress. In May, my portfolio increased by $2,058 from $121,716 to $123,774. The increase in value is attributed to stock market appreciation. The markets are hot and stocks continue to trade at high valuations. I have a bit of cash sitting in the account and if we get some pullback, I will take the opportunity to buy. I’m thinking investing in energy stocks, like adding more to Suncor, Enbridge, and Pembina. The world is thirsty for oil and the demand will only increase due to summer driving season.

  1. Hey German. Looks like you're making great progress on all fronts. :) Suncor, Enbridge, and Pembina are some of my favourite stocks to buy during market corrections as well. They seem to get hit hard but always recover. Keep up the great work. It won't be long before you'll make $500 a month in dividends!

    1. Hey Liquid. Thanks for stopping by. Energy stocks took a bit hit because oil demand plummeted due to covid, but now the demand is going back up and these companies are on a great recovery trajectory. Looking forward to that $500/mo milestone.

  2. great stuff german. The divs keep coming in but that youtube chart is just fantastic

    keep it up man

    1. Thanks Rob. I wonder if YouTube traffic will pick up in August just like last year.
