The TSX is getting closer to the 21 000 points and its quite fun to watch!

This past Friday had been another great day for the TSX. My non-registered portfolio closed today session at $137,312.77, my TFSA portfolio at $128,729.29 and my RRSP portfolio at $61,945.13. I estimate my net worth to exceed $331,000. In my opinion, the road to the first $350,000 won't be too long. 

Currently, the gains made on my Bitcoins and Ethereum unit funds are all together reaching the $400+ value. It's a nice amount, but since I had been waiting for quite a while now to make a great profit by selling my investment in Bitcoin Fund The Class A units (QBTC), Purpose Bitcoin ETF CAD ETF non-currency hedged units (BTCC.B), and 3iQ CoinShares Ether ETF (ETHQ). I want to see the color of my money with those investments. It's the reason why I will just ignore for now that I even have any units of QBTC, BTCC.B, and ETHQ in my TFSA portfolio, and get back to it later on. Maybe just in 2022, we'll see. In my opinion, the 3iQ's funds are the best ones to invest in to make a quick and easy profit. Sometimes, a quick wanted profit takes a bit more time to make.

At first, I had a good start buying-and-seeling crypto funds. But at a point, I got stuck in the game and I haven't been able to sell as quickly as before. This is the reason why I still hold to my crypto funds unit in date of today. Now, the situation is a bit different. I am simply holding in the hope to make more profit. Once made, that profit will be made at a $0 commission fee - thanks to my new broker National Bank Direct Brokerage - and also free of tax because I hold all of my crypto funds inside my TFSA portfolio. 

Before leaving Montreal for New Brunswick, I spent a bit of money. I bought a new smartphone, which I really needed, new boots, clothes, and a few other purchases which unfortunately add up too quickly. I prefer to buy those things in Montreal because where I am in New Brunswick, we have fewer choices and stores. Extra money would be more than welcome. Just to make me feel worst, I had to leave some things behind because my luggage pieces were already very heavy... It's not an easy task to pack for several months for both autumn and winter, but I did, and here I am, watching the train in my old folks' backyard:

I like to watch the train. It usually travels from right to left, like in this video.

Welcome in my non-registered portfolio, National Bank of Canada (NA)!

I just did a small investment in the National Bank of Canada (NA) for my non-registered portfolio, to activate the credit transfer fee from National Bank Direct Brokerage.

Still no luck hunting so far, but the weather is just too warm right now and it's not helping. However, I got a few nice pictures of my hunting






We saw two mooses, but we stay away:





Yesterday, I updated my investment portfolio. It was my first update since being with National Bank Direct Brokerage. We note a few newcomers: Vanguard Russell 1000 Growth Index Fund (VONG) in my US portfolio, North West Company Inc. (The) (NWC) in my TFSA portfolio, and AirBoss of America Corp. (BOS) in my RRSP portfolio.

I used to have a huge history of my total assets and net worth value in the right column of my blog. I had put that information in a post, that you can now find right here. From now on, I will only put in my right column the latest total assets and net worth value, like this, which is currently from my blog right column, among with the little warning above it:

Yesterday, my net worth closed the session at $330,680.17. I was curious to see my results, now that all of my investments are with National Bank Direct Brokerage. I am not exceeding my highest net worth ever, which was in the 332k, but I am not really far away.

Welcome in my US portfolio, Vanguard Russell 1000 Growth Index Fund (VONG)!

I invested in Vanguard Russell 1000 Growth Index Fund (VONG) earlier today for my US investment portfolio.

My Canadian non-registered portfolio closed today session on a good $136,312.17, my TFSA portfolio at $127,569.78, my RRSP portfolio at $61,447.64, and my US non-registered portfolio closed at $4 311,79 CAN. My US margin portfolio arrived over the National Bank Direct Brokerage on the first week of October, but I didn't receive yet the $135 plus taxes credit to cover the transfer fees for that account. As told by a National Bank Direct Brokerage's broker, I begin to really believe now that you really need to place a first trade before received the so wanted credit. Just like I had been told.

I only had a small amount in cash available inside my US margin portfolio - and even though it's a "margin" portfolio, I don't want to borrow money in US dollars in that account. I took a look at Derek Foster's latest newsletter, but I didn't find anything for my interest in his portfolio. I have access to Stockopedia to help me find new stocks to invest in, but my subscription exclusively covers Canadian stocks only. Following what, I suddenly remember something that been said by Warren Buffett, that the S&P 500 Index was a good investment. So I started by looking for US ETF related to the S&P 500 Index. Unfortunately, the ETFs that are invested in the S&P 500 Index are super expensive, like $200, $300 per unit!

I also check on the price stocks of different US companies, but many of them are super expensive. Generally speaking, I find the US market to be a rough place to be. It's super expensive and extra volatile. I find it difficult to find a US stock that has a good overall chart that goes all the way up. Fortunately enough, Vanguard Russell 1000 Growth Index Fund (VONG) has exactly the kind of overall chart that I like, only nice and steady growth that is under control:


Trust me when I say, it's extremely hard to find US stocks that have such a good quality overall chart.

I only made a tiny small investment in Vanguard Russell 1000 Growth Index Fund (VONG) today, but with my upcoming transfer credit fee that I am waiting for from National Bank Direct Brokerage, I will have enough money to invest in something else in US dollars, but once again, it will only be a tiny little small investment. Having a $0 commission fee broker is for me a huge game-changer.

In my opinion, there's no small investment, even if I name some that way. Every single investment made over the stock market is an important one. It doesn't matter how little you invest, but the money absolutely needs to be made inside high-quality investments, no matter how little the amount invested is. And this is exactly how I reached my highest net worth ever of $332,735.61, by investing small amounts of money over time in high-quality stocks. I want my blog to be the illustration of just that.

Transfer finally done and completed: my investment portfolio is now with National Bank Direct Brokerage!

Following its arrival, it took more than the usual 48 hours for my non-registered Canadian margin portfolio to be completely transferred over National Bank Direct Brokerage. Most of the investments that I hold inside my non-registered Canadian margin portfolio were transferred over National Bank Direct Brokerage arrived on October 5th. However, on October 5th, two of my biggest holders were missing and haven't been transferred, but they were nowhere to be seen over my old TD Direct account... That's the scariest part, not to be able to see your stocks, but that's actually a good thing, meaning that the transfer is ongoing. My two biggest investments, PPL and ENB, finally arrived on the date of today inside my Canadian margin portfolio over National Bank Direct Brokerage. The date that appears on the Activity page is actually yesterday, but yesterday, PPL and ENB were nowhere to be seen. I am quite happy that this transfer is finally done and completed!

It hasn't been much stressful. Both TD Direct and National Bank Direct Brokerage brokers had been great and done their job. I know that many investors might have done what I did and transferred their assets over National Bank Direct Brokerage. It just required some checking once something new arrived over NBDB. Yesterday evening, I write down in my agenda all the dividend payout dates. It allows me to verify the following: it seems like I am missing two dividend distributions inside my TFSA portfolio, and one dividend distribution over my RRSP portfolio. I will call National Bank Direct Brokerage on Monday only because for now, this lady is still on vacation.

I wrote down in my agenda the dividend distribution date. For that task, I checked each and every single of my dividend stocks over the TSX page. Following what, I click on the Key Data of the stock:


That way, I can verify the payable date of the dividend:
Since I had been holding most of my assets for a really long time, I don't need to worry about the Ex-Date. It's the Payable date that I wrote down in my agenda for each of my stocks. It was a long exercise, but it was worth the effort. In my early days as an investor, I was checking my dividend distribution, but I have to admit that it's something I didn't do for quite some time. However, since I recently switch brokers, I want to verify my dividend distribution. Sincerely, it's a task that we should all do as investors. We are alone to verify our own interests. From now on, I will verify my dividend income and check that I actually received everything the TSX own me :-)

Still no luck at hunting little partridges yesterday, we didn't kill any. Today is a hunting break day.

Happy Thanksgiving, Canadian Investors!

For Thanksgiving, I usually always take some time off from work around this time of year. Despite COVID, this year was no exception. Last year was actually the only exception. Today was my first day hunting partridge, but we got no luck. The weather is too hot, and we'll need from now on to get up earlier in the morning. Today, we start our hunting day around 9 am. No luck with partridges, but the autumn scenery was beautiful.











The transfer of my Canadian non-registered portfolio over National Bank Direct Brokerage is not completed yet, I am still missing one investment, which is quite annoying. I hope to have everything set to normal tomorrow. If not, I will have to contact National Bank Direct Brokerage on Wednesday. I hope I won't have to call. I am currently on vacation and I wouldn't like to spend time waiting on speakerphone before being able to reach someone for help. I hope this problem will resolve by itself, just like it did last time. I had experienced a similar experience with the transfer of my TFSA portfolio over the National Bank Direct Brokerage. Following the transfer, I was missing one investment. The missing investment arrived in my TFSA portfolio like magic after 48 hours.

Otherwise, I had been doing a bit of surfing on Stockopedia for new investments. I already came with a list of interesting stocks that I will be soon sharing. I am searching for new investment ideas because right now, both Bitcoin and Ethereum are doing great. I am still holding on to my investments Bitcoin Fund The Class A units (QBTC), Purpose Bitcoin ETF CAD ETF non-currency hedged units (BTCC.B), and 3iQ CoinShares Ether ETF (ETHQ), but I will sell all of those 3 once I see great color in the money.

I am now in New Brunswick!

And Internet is working :-)

I arrived in New Brunswick earlier today. No one was waiting for us at the Quebec-New Brunswick border. I guess that New Brunswick's Travel Registration Program hasn't started yet. We were ready anyway. We had our registration numbers, I had printed the form for the 3 of us before leaving. It was however quite stressful because we knew that if the registration program was on, we would have several hours to wait at the Quebec-New Brunswick border. Today, we didn't have to stop, so we were quite released. COVID cases are going up in New Brunswick so I guess that New Brunswick's Travel Registration Program will probably start pretty soon.

I was heavily pack, like expected. In Montreal, my apartment is on the second floor. The most difficult part of the trip was to take down all of my luggage by myself downstairs. Following what, I call a taxi, which arrived quite quickly and I went directly to the Beri-UQAM bus station. I was an hour early, but that's ok. When I leave early in the morning like that, I am always scared not to be able to catch a taxi. I always call Taxi Diamond, and I never had a problem with them. I am always scared for nothing. I am not a fan of Uber and I never their services. In Montreal, Taxi Diamond is the best in my opinion. 

I took the bus Montreal-Ste-Foy, and Ste-Foy to Rivière-du-Loup. Luckily, there was no bus transfer. Its actually the driver who switch bus, and not the passengers. I think it's their way of doing things now. It was also like that last time, when I traveled to New Brunswick just a few weeks back. One of the reasons why I decided to move to New Brunswick for the next couple of months is to make my life easier. I always traveled to New Brunswick for both Christmas and Easter. Now that I will be in New Brunswick for the next couple of months, I won't have to travel. I really dislike traveling during the winter.

By staying in New Brunswick and without doing my usual back and ford between Montreal-New Brunswick, I am preserving myself - and my family - from COVID. Traveling by bus is not super expensive, but staying in New Brunswick will help me save some money. Also, I like the change of scenery. I actually like the idea to spend winter and the biggest part of spring in New Brunswick, and the summer in Montreal. My winter clothes will be in New Brunswick, and my summer clothes in Montreal. My idea would be to live like this for the next couple of years. I would probably come again to New Brunswick for a summer vacation because summer is too fun in New Brunswick. But Montreal is also super fun during the summer. Who said I couldn't have both? :-)

Before leaving Montreal, I call the insurance for tenants that I have, explaining I was leaving my apartment for a few months. Fact that I am not living in my apartment doesn't increase the cost of the insurance. They simply left a note in my account. They also ask if I was renting my apartment while not being there, but it won't be the case. The night before my departure, I also call Videotron. I have both my Internet and TV with them. I explained I was going away for a few months, actually until the end of April. I wanted them to lower my invoice, and they did just that! It was actually better than I expected. They have what they name in French a "suspension saisonnière", which I may translate by something like "seasonal services suspension". At Videotron, it's something you can request max one time per year, for a maximum period of 6 months in a row. You pay something like $49 one time and for the next 6 months, the bill will be $0. This is super helpful and I was really happy to receive that service suspension. I guess that service is probably popular among Snowbirds who spend winter in Florida. In my case, I am going to spend winter in New Brunswick in the cold, but it's going to be fun anyway.

Here's what I got today as the sunset. Not bad, isn't it? 

I quickly check over National Bank, and at least one investment haven't arrived yet inside my newest account transferred, my non-registered Canadian margin. As for the amount of margin debt they had entered, it is accurate. Too bad they forgot not to erase it. :)

Slowly but certainly switching broker over to National Bank Direct Brokerage

Don't ask me how well or bad did my non-registered Canadian portfolio today, because currently, that portfolio of mine is gone in the wind. Its no longer at TD Direct and did not arrive yet at National Bank Direct Brokerage. That's the most frightening part because it's kind of strange to have the account - and the money, nowhere to be seen... It's simply the transfer procedure that is ongoing. This means that tomorrow morning, I should begin to see partly - or maybe if lucky enough fully - the investments that I hold inside my non-registered Canadian portfolio over NBDB. Within 48 hours, I should have received everything. As for my US margin portfolio, it still remains at TD at the present time, because I can still see it. :-)

As for my Canadian non-registered margin, upon arrival, probably tomorrow morning, I will of course check if all assets had been transferred, and I will check if the number of shares per investment is correct, and as well the initial investment value per investment. And most important of all, I will check the amount of the margin debt, so it's the same as before. The timing is not exactly perfect as I am soon moving to New Brunswick for a couple of months. I wish everything will be fine within 48 hours so I have nothing to do.

These days, both ETH and Bitcoins are going great. I am keeping my radar on those two. I would like to eventually sell the following investments that I hold inside my TFSA portfolio: Bitcoin Fund The Class A units (QBTC), Purpose Bitcoin ETF CAD ETF non-currency hedged units (BTCC.B), and 3iQ CoinShares Ether ETF (ETHQ). I am still not in a rush to sell, but I had been on those crypto investments for a little while now and I would like to see the color of my money on those.

One thing for sure, I would like to invest something around 2k inside my RRSP by the end of the fiscal year. Not that I am a huge fan of RRSP, but this year, I did a bit of money trading inside my non-registered account, and I did some extra hours at work.

I have still a bit of money left over my TFSA and RRSP portfolios. Being with a $0 commission fee broker is quite helpful a lot because I feel really free investing in what I want, when I want, more than ever before. I always had an interest in ATS Automation Tooling Systems Inc. (ATA), but I never invested in the stock because I feel it was a more risky investment. But now, if I want, I can even invest in one tiny little share of ATS Automation Tooling Systems Inc. (ATA) and that idea alone is enough to make me happy. One of the reasons why I never invested in ATA is that the stock doesn't pay any dividend distribution. 

While shopping around for new investments, I always prefer to pick a business that pays a dividend, even if it's a small distribution. A small amount is always better than nothing at all.
