My net worth value on date of June 24, 2022: $323,815.43

I taught my net worth was more in the range of $325,000 when it comes to my net worth, but I had a few bills to pay...  The TSX gained over 300 points, which help push up things a bit. Personally, as long I am still in the $300,000, I feel fine. Compare to my highest net worth value ever, which was back just a couple of months on April 20, I experience a capital loss of -$37,626.99. 

Derek Foster shared an update of his investment portfolio this weekend. That's how I learn that Derek Foster is invested in Restaurant Brands (QSR). In his latest BNN interview, Jean-François Tardif also talked about QSR. It's hard for me to even consider QSR as a possible investment. Here are my reasons.

In my opinion, it should be considered illegal for businesses like Burger King, Tim Hortons, Popeyes, and Firehouse Subs to even exist. And add to this list McDonald's and every other junk food chain. All the food proposed by Burger King, Tim Hortons, Popeyes, and Firehouse Subs contains a very high level of sodium, and it's all very distusgting. Personally, I am super sensitive to sugar and sodium. Food that contains a super high level of sodium is very bad for my weight. It sure tastes good, but it doesn't do any good.

Tim Hortons latest collaboration with Justin Bieber is a real joke. Basically, Tim Hortons teamed up with Justin Bieber to propose even more crap to Canadian consumers who are dumb enough to fall in the crap. The "Biebs" products are full of sugar shit.

When I am in New Brunswick, I do drink Tim Hortons coffee, but I don't drink it because it tastes good. I drink it because it's about the only coffee I can get. I also bought once Tim Hortons instant coffee, and the taste was awful, it was actually worst than the coffee you can buy at Tim Hortons. At one point, you buy Tim Hortons coffee because you get used to the weird taste, and it becomes normal. But coffee is made to taste good. Not to taste bad, but Tim Hortons doesn't get that. As a result, too many Canadians got addicted to the bad taste of Tim Hortons' coffee.

It's not because Derek Foster and Jean-François Tardif are invested in Restaurant Brands (QSR) that I am going to follow them on that evil path. Restaurant Brands (QSR) is a big no-no for me.

I appreciate receiving Derek Foster portfolio updates, but I don't very like the stuff he's investing in these days. This had been the case actually for the past couple of years. I don't find my original Derek Foster from the old Stop Working days. I guess it's because those days are too old now...

In his latest newsletter, Derek Foster revealed being invested in Align Technologies (ALGN), explaining that his children (maybe one or many more of them) had benefited from Align, to straight-up teeth. Personally, I don't have straight teeth and I sincerely don't give a damn. Having your teeth straight up is a sign of domination to the mass. And that alignment thing is hurtful. Unless it's medical - because some people can have some major big teeth problems - why should teeth be straight?

Got to sleep on that.

My net worth is now at $318,437.15 (on date of June 17, 2022)

I updated my investment portfolio this past Saturday, just to have an idea of where I was standing, among all that mess. I had just posted my latest Total asset history so far. Despite it all, my net worth is still in the $300,000. My net worth closed this past Friday session at exactly $318,437.15. Today, my stock portfolios gained $3,142.16, which brings my net worth to $321,579.31. It feels better to have my net worth in the $320,000, even if I am experiencing a loss of $39,863.11 compared to my highest net worth value, which was $361,442.42 not too long ago, on April 20 of this year.

I had a fun weekend, I did a bunch. It actually felt like I had spent a 3 days weekend, instead of 2. This past Saturday, they had installed a major circle sculpture in downtown Montreal. It was raining, but I went to see the installation anyway. This is what it looks like:

















Jean-François Tardif was at BNN this morning. For once, I was listening live. I am not really interested in the stocks proposed today, but it happens that my interest wakes up later on. It makes sense to stay away from the bank, knowing that interest rate increase will hurt homeowners, but it appears to be way just too logical for something of that nature to actually happen. What I mean is that I don't think the increased rate will hurt Canadian banks. It simply just cannot happen.

To buy or not to buy the dip, that is the question

These days, I try to listen to BNN as much as can to catch up with everything that is going on, but it's not always possible. Just to make things worst, I am extra busy at work, which slows down my ability to follow closely what's going on with my belove TSX. However, I had listened to some guests saying that they were not buying the dip, and they were more interested in other indicators, etc. Personally, I find it very stupid to hear some so-call financial personalities declaring that they are not buying the dip... First, we need to buy the dip to simulate the TSX and make her gain up some points. Secondly, remember, it's when stocks trade low that you need to buy them, not when they trade at their ultimate high!!!

Hearing not to buy the dip is for me extremely, very extremely annoying for me. Beefing up the TSX needs to be done as a collective effort. It's the ultimate act of pure patriotism and on top of that, it's a super-smart money move, but you need to invest in the right stocks. Forget about crypto.

Yesterday, I finish work late, and following what, a mega-storm hit Montreal with heavy rain. I had my Lisa Leblanc concert at 9 pm, which I went to, it was fun, but the place was quite very full with little place to shake my booty. I finally place myself against a wall because I was exhausted. And we all know what happen yesterday to the TSX... Yesterday, I taught: well at least we are still in 19,000 points... Little that I know that today, the TSX was going to slide down below the 19,000 points!!! The TSX closed today's session with 18,930.48 points, losing 73.68 points.

This is not fun, but I decided to take this to my advantage. Yesterday, I invested in a few BCE shares, ad I invested again in a couple of BCE shares again today. For that purchase, I had transferred a bit less than $2,000 to my non-registered portfolio. Yesterday, I still have a buying power of over $45,000 over my margin account, so I can say that my non-registered portfolio is handling the hit quite gracefully.

With my newest investment, my overall dividend income is in the $11,400, and from my non-registered and TFSA portfolios, I am now super close to the equivalent of $800 per month, which I am very excited about. To celebrate, I even took an appointment for a haircut... A girl is a girl, even if it's a Dividend girl one.

I think I will publish a portfolio update sometime this evening or this weekend because I want to get an overall picture of this shit. It's kind of a historical event, one big downturn, that I manage to survive, just like any other one. But this is badly special.

Yesterday at Lisa Leblanc's concert, the MTELUS theater was full of people and I wasn't wearing a mask. Let's just hope I won't get the COVID. Just to make things worst, I ate a slice of pizza on my way home because I just couldn't stand myself, so I ate up the COVID virus, if I catch it, it went in my stomach. I should had wear a mask, but it was quite hot in there with all those people. I didn't get any pictures or videos because it wasn't allowed, and I decided to be a good girl. I could see the employees of the theater reaching out to people who were taking pictures and videos, so I didn't want to create more difficulties for the staff. Overall, it was a fun night. I am not under the impression that I will get the COVID.

Dreaming of some BCE Inc. (BCE) stocks for my non-registered portfolio

My stocks portfolio still got hurt today, but today, I only experimented with a loss of -0.077%. With a TSX that closed at the day with 19,611.56 points, my non-registered portfolio closed the day at $141,896.93, my US portfolio at $4,491.52, my RRSP portfolio - stocks-only - at $62,973.52, and my TFSA portfolio at $116,635.52. I am getting ready to place my next investment. I decided to invest in BCE Inc. (BCE) because its stock is cheap and its dividend is too good to be ignored. However, following this, I will try to ignore BCE  - and Telus - and invest in other sectors. 

The best thing is that with this upcoming investment in BCE is that my monthly dividend income coming from my non-registered and TFSA portfolio only - will be close to $800. My belief is that the BCE dividend is reliable, as much as the big banks. Next, I may tempt myself to invest a bit in BNS. 

I think the new "usual" for the TSX remains in those 19,000 points for the present time. It doesn't really bother me. And I really wish it will remain the same for the next couple of months because I am really looking to beef up my dividend income. If I could reach a $1,000 monthly coming from my non-registered and TFSA portfolios, that would be quite nice. Imagine having an extra 1k to invest every month... We'll see when we can make that happen.

Welcome in my TFSA Telus Corp (T) and Verde Agritech Plc Ordinary Shares (NPK)

It's been another rough day for the TSX. My non-registered portfolio closed today session at $142,667.36, my US portfolio at $4,482.92, my RRSP stocks-only portfolio at $62 964,27, and my TFSA portfolio at $116,108.69. My "margin buying power" is in the $48,000 and my margin debt is in the 45k, so my numbers are under control. Right now, I estimate my net worth to be in the $338,000, which is not too bad. I was listening to BNN today and at one point one of their guests said that the TSX could undergo another -10% loss. If we are only talking about 10%, I am ready to accept that.

I had a bit of money left available coming from dividend distribution so I decided to invest in Telus Corp (T) and Verde Agritech Plc Ordinary Shares (NPK). I only made a tiny little investment in those. For security reasons, I no longer expose the number of shares that I purchase or that I hold from X or X investment, but be aware that whenever I announced a new stock investment, it doesn't necessarily mean that I invested a lot of money in the newcomer. My broker is National Bank Direct Brokerage and trusts me when I say, I truly take full advantage of my $0 commission fee advantage that I have with them.

I invested in T for the dividend, and I made an investment in NPK because I had my eyes on that stock since I read about that stock in an article written by Ben Hobson from Stockpedia. It's quite impressive fr me that a Brit actually knows that our belove TSX even existed and actually pays attention to what's going on in the best country in the world. I am actually really impressed. 

I just went over my budget, and oh surprise, I have a $1,700 available to invest in whatever I want. Obviously, that money will be invested in my non-registered portfolio, in an effort to help my margin survive the mess we are currently in. BCE stocks close the day in the $63 per stock and I find that to be quite a good deal! For now, I still have a bit of time left ahead to think about it since I am getting paid only on Friday and it takes something like 2 business days before my money can arrive in my margin account. I haven't checked on Stockopedia in a little while and the same thing with Susan Brunner blog, I haven't checked it out for a little while.

What I am looking for, is easy: a stock trading at a bargain price, that pays a sustainable and steady dividend.
