I finally made it! My net worth is now exceeding $250,000! YEAH!

This is it!!!!!! 

Ahhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Actually, my net worth is now at $250,595. With a TSX closing at 17,484.77 points, I knew that I was definitively on my highest value EVER! These days, the TSX set record highs day after day after day! Again today, I updated my investment portfolio. You may have noticed, on the date of today, Corby Distilleries Limited (CSW.A) is no longer from my non-registered portfolio. I decided to sell CSW.A. I was able to cash in a nice profit. The money went to pay down my margin account, which is now at $46,242.32. I now have $4,942.63 in my savings account. I will do my best to have a 5k for February and keep it that way.

I still have close to 4k in cash inside my TFSA portfolio. I will have more time this weekend to think about my next investments. This evening, Enquêtes, a French TV journalist show put the spotlight on a company that I own in my non-registered portfolio for many years: Spauto Inc. (SAP). Lino Saputo had a relationship with the mafia. The Saputo family came from Sicilia, where the mafia is from. At that time, it was the only way for them to do business. And let's not forget the really humble beginning of the Saputo family when they arrived in Canada, when Lino had to give his pocket money to his father, so they could have a $500 to start their cheese business in Montreal. It's quite a touching story. And this is exactly the kind of business that I want to hold in my portfolio. I want to hold businesses for which their owners would do absolutely everything they need to do and fight for their achievements. Because their achievements also became my achievements, since I am a stockholder.

The Saputo needed to have good relations with the mafia in order to expand their business in the US and other countries. It was the way it used to be, nothing to be ashamed of. However, Lino Saputo always denied any relations with the mafia. The spotlights are on Saputo Inc. right now because Lino Saputo had the really bad idea to publish his memoirs, in which he denied any relationship with the mafia. I guess for him, the exchanges he had with some mafia members were not wrong, but he should have never written a single word about it. Don't you ever believe that you can become bloody rich by always playing clean, because I don't believe it, especially while being an immigrate. Lino Saputo is the richest man in Quebec, he should have known that sometimes, you need to shut it off. 

I don't mind dirty play from time to time, as long as it doesn't hurt no one. I do not believe in clean business.

An unwanted couple in Canada: "Prince" Harry & Meghan Markle

I just don't understand why Harry and Meghan want to live in Canada, both don't belong here and they are not Canadians. Both don't have strong accomplishments under their belt. They are being known as a Ken and Barbie doll, well dressed, looking good, but other than that, nothing else to take about. No matter what, Harry is part of the monarchy, that's his world, where he belongs. Just a few months following their royal wedding, their departure from full-time royal life doesn't make any sense. It's quite a selfish, self-centered move. I feel Harry and Meghan as being too involved in themselves. Personally, my relationship with the monarchy had evolved. In Canada, we are too much of a great country to have any link at all to any monarchy system. This is a bad gift coming from colonialism. It's quite disgusting to think that our hard earn money might have to go to cover the cost of the security of Harry and Meghan, especially knowing how much they had screamed that they wanted to be financially independent. I however somewhat have a good feeling about William, which I find is much more of a giver than his younger brother, much less selfish, and I think he can do a lot of good for his country. One day, he will make for sure a great king, but all that stuff doesn't concern Canada. We shouldn't be considered as part of their kingdom.
 
One of my favorite stock of the moment, Pembina Pipeline Corporation (PPL), had recently increased their dividend distribution. It allows me to push my annual dividend income (including dividend coming from my RRSP portfolio) to $9 302.72. Good financial news only follows good news these days, at least for me, and I guess also for everyone. The TSX is rocking my world and is on it's highest value EVER. With all this goodness, my net worth is probably in the $247 000. I hope the TSX will close on a good note so I can update my investment portfolio again. Who knows, I have all the chances of the world to hit on a $250k net worth real soon. And from there, just watch me reaching the 300k!!

Nice dreams, but while talking, I am more and more thinking about selling my investment in Corby Distilleries Limited (CSW.A). The money would go to pay down my margin account. I have close to 4k in cash inside my TFSA portfolio, but I don't know what o do with that money. Isn't it kind of a lovely problem, to have money to spend, to invest, to do whatever I want with it, but not knowing what do to with it? As you know if you read each and every single words of mine, I no longer have access to Stockopedia so I am kind of a dog trying to reach out to her tail, but obviously, I don't have one, and obviously, I no longer have that Stockopedia. The search for the perfect stock is still on and is a never-ending one. 

One thing I know for sure, that 4k cash in my TFSA will remain in my TFSA. One reason is that I didn't make any new contribution to my TFSA portfolio so far for 2020. Having the chance to have money in cash inside a TFSA portfolio is a huge benefit. I believe that no one should take off money from a TFSA portfolio, unless you really need it. Right now, I am not feeling like moving that cash out from my TFSA.

Basically, I have no idea what to do with my money, but it's not a negative thing at all. It's quite ok this way, better to do nothing rather than doing a stupid and dumb investment move. Once I will know what to so, it will be the best investment move you will have never seen of your life, so have sweet dreams on that.

Reaching out my highest net worth value EVER: $244,970.41

Despite all the bad things going on right now in the world, Australia's bad fires, Prince Harry and Meghan that may move to Canada, the situation between Iran and the US, and so many more... despite it all, the TSX remains solid like a rock and closed today session at a fantastic 17,235.57 points. I had my eyes on Pembina Pipeline Corporation (PPL) today and while watching it gaining more than 4%, I knew that I was on something hot. This was going to be a good day for me I knew it, so I quickly updated my investment portfolio

It's official, I finally made it, I pop up the 240k net worth! I am currently sitting on a $244,970.41 pot of gold. This is the highest net worth value I had ever reached. And the best thing being, I am not missing much before hitting on the 250k. All I can say is that this year 2020 is starting the right way. I still believe in my chances to reach out to the 300k net worth by the end of the year.

Today, Pembina Pipeline Corporation (PPL) finally performed the way I wanted. Back in 2019, I had invested in Kinder Morgan Canada Limited restricted (KML) following the announcement buyout by PPL. That investment brought in quite some excitement. I was really sure of my move and never doubt that success was among the way. Later on, KML had been magically transformed into some PPL stocks and as a result now, I am registering some interesting capital gains. 

It's all good stuff at this moment, but I still have a bit of work on the way. On my "maybe" to-do list or stuff I am just thinking about:

-To sell my investment in General Mills Inc. (GIS) and reinvest the money in another US stock.
-Reinvest the cash that I currently have inside my TFSA portfolio.
-Do a cash contribution for my TFSA.
-To sell my Corby Distilleries Limited (CSW.A) stocks.
