Buy - Royal Bank Of Canada

My recent buying trend has been insurance and banking stocks. Oops, I did it again. The trend continues because I bought Royal Bank of Canada  (RY) stock. This purchase marks the 3rd Canadian bank stock I've added to my portfolio this year. Last week, I bought 25 Royal Bank of Canada shares at $57.65 a share, for a total of $1,448.20. This new holding increases my annual dividend income by $60.75 dollars. My other Canadian bank transactions this year were 50 shares of the Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS), and 30 shares of Toronto-Dominion Bank (TD).
