Portfolio Update - July 2014

The month of July 2016 is now behind us.  What continues to be the big headline month after month?  The price of a barrel of WTI Crude Oil fell below $40.00.  In Canada and the United States we have stock markets that are at an all time high.  A province in Canada, Alberta, is feeling the full effects of the low oil prices.  We have companies that service the oil patch, who have laid off a large amount of their work force and reduced hours of most of their employees.

On July 27, the initiated a new position in HNY, which is the Horizons Natural Gas Yield ETF.  This purchased was done over two separate purchases on the same day.  I purchased 94 units for a total of $1490.07.  My brokerage offers free commission ETFs, but their were ECN fees of $0.329.  The distribution of this ETF is paid monthly and varies month to month.  July 27 was the ex-dividend date, so I am not eligible for the distribution payment that is paid this month.
