Portfolio Update - July 2022

 The month of July 2022 is now behind us.

The effects of COVID19 on the economy is still a major thing effecting the economy.  We are still in a pandemic, although a lot of places have relaxed or eliminated all the public health restrictions.  We currently have lock downs in China amid arise in COVID19 cases in Asia.

The Russian invasion of Ukraine is still the major topic in the news.  The prices of fuel remains high in across the world. In Canada, some of the provinces has provided relief at the pumps and on the electricity bills.  

In September 2022, the Conservative Party of Canada will elect a new leader.  This might effect the markets depending on who is elected.  Currently right now, Pierre Poilievre, is the runner.   

The stock market is dropping as fears of a recession are taken hold across the world.  I believe we are in a recession or just about to start one.   

With a recession , we see the stress on people's faces as the threat of layoffs increases.  As we have seen with COVID 19, no job is safe.

I have some other positions with the DRIP turned on, but might not have enough of a dividend to purchase a whole share. 

My Enbridge position directly with the transfer agent is set up to DRIP.  Around November 2018, Enbridge stopped their DRIP program.  If Enbridge decides to start a DRIP, then my shares will start to DRIP again automatically.  

Please note that if some brokerages DRIP shares when there is no DRIP program by the actual company. This DRIP is when the brokerage buys the shares directly off the public market stock exchanges.
