What I Sold To Pay Off My Mortgage

As a follow up to my article on paying off my mortgage, I promised to post which stocks I sold, when I sold them, and what the price was if readers showed any interest in that information.

I received a few e-mails requesting those details so, as promised, here is the data:

February 29, 2012 Sales:
TransCanada Pipeline – $43.02
Sun Life Financial – $$21.70
Proctor and Gamble (USD) – $67.70

March 1, 2012 Sales:
Crescent Point Energy – $46.98
Fortis – $32.70
Davis and Henderson – $17.63
Power Corp. – $25.50
ScotiaBank – $55.59
Bonterra Energy – $55.59 

March 2, 2012 Sale:
Annaly Capital (USD) – $16.50

 All securities traded in Canadian Dollars on the Toronto Stock Exchange unless otherwise noted.

I am currently in the process of building the portfolio back up and am sitting in mostly cash at the moment – which is fortunate for me as the market has backed off some from when I liquidated this account in early March.


  1. Good for you selling stocks to pay off your mortgage! That’s so awesome! I bet it feels amazing!

  2. John,
    Thanks for stopping by!
    I actually wrote a little post previous to this about how it doesn’t really ‘feel’ that different.
    What does make me feel good is that the timing was fortuitous as most of the stocks I sold are now trading significantly lower. I hope they stay low while I build up my nest egg and start buying them back!
