As you can see there are a number of stocks in my portfolio that have exceeded 40% in return. But the focus of today’s article is to look at stocks with triple digit returns:

Canadian National Railway (CNR) 164%
Empire Company Limited (EMP.A) 157%
TransCanada Corporation (TRP) 439%
Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) 143%

CNR was founded in 1922, and has had 18 years of consecutive dividend increases. In January of this year CNR announced a dividend increase of 25%, the largest increase in the company’s history. It engages in rail and related transportation businesses in North America.

EMP.A was founded in 1907 and has had 31 years of consecutive dividend increases. The company owns or franchises approximately 1,500 retail stores in 10 provinces under various banners, including Sobeys, Sobeys extra, IGA extra, Safeway, Thrifty Foods, IGA, Foodland, FreshCo, Bonichoix, Les Marchés Tradition, and Lawtons Drugs stores.

TRP was founded in 1951 and has had 15 years of consecutive dividend increase. It operates as an energy infrastructure company (Natural Gas Pipelines, Liquids Pipelines, and Energy.) in North America.

WBA was founded in 1901 and has had 40 years of consecutive dividend increases. The company operates a network of over 8200 drugstores in the United States.

Keep in mind this is not a buy list, you should only buy quality companies when they are undervalued.

The purpose of today’s article was not to brag about my results, but to show that consistent and patient investing in quality stocks can yield spectacular results. I’m no different than anyone else, if I can invest successfully so can you.
