I made a small purchase in my TFSA with the small amount of cash that was sitting in the account. I decide to put it too work and took advantage of free commission ETF offered by my broker. I purchased 11 shares of Claymore 1-5 Yr Laddered Corporation Bond ETF on the Toronto Stock Exchange, which you can read about here. The ticker symbol is CBO. I didn't purchased before the ex-dividend date so I did not receive a distribution for the month of August.
I also acquired 1 more share of Killam properties in my TFSA via DRIP at a cost of $10.60.
The big news for the month of August is the announcement of Burger King purchasing Tim Horton's for 12.5 Billion. I currently own 100 shares of Tim Horton's. I recently wrote a post on the 3 options of current shareholder of Tim Horton's have on the table.
As of Sept 2, 2014, the value of my portfolio stands at $75175.32. This is an increase of 5.761% over last month. This increase in mostly due to Tim Horton's going up from $65.00 to over $87.00 a share due to the announcement of being bought by Burger King.
