My net worth is now at $232 280.40!

Today, when I saw the TSX going over the 16 400 points, I knew my time was up: my net worth was on the 230k mark! So I went home quietly, leaving my gym bag behind at work, quickly update my portfolio and all the numbers adding up to a good $331 413.83. My margin usage is currently of $99 133.43, leaving me with a net worth of $232 280.40. Today was a historic day for the TSX, as well as for me. It's now official, I now have exceeded the 230k net worth, while the TSX was closing its session at 16 420.95 points. I really wanted to publish an update for my portfolio because I don't know if the good shapes of the TSX will remain or not. Everything is so chaotic, its quite hard to explain the TSX reached a historic high today. 

Also today, I had accumulated a small amount in cash inside my RRSP stocks portfolio. I decided to make a little investment in Logistec Corporation Class B Subordinate Voting Shares (LGT.B). And today, LGT.B closed today session at its highest value of the year: $54.50 per share. I believe that I have all the chances of the word to hit on a $240 000 net worth right on time for my birthday, only if the TSX remains in good shape, and I read on the Globe and Mail that specialists really believe that the rally is not over...

See, the contrarian state is something that is very strong and present on the stock market. It's something that is not understandable. And while having difficulties with our US "friends", the TSX has strong indicators of a good economic growth. The TSX never reacts to the event the way I do and its much better that way. I am the worrying mother waiting for her child to grow and this one won't ever be taking away from me. 

I am currently enjoying my $232 280.40 net worth, but I am now only dreaming of the 250k and I can even dream of reaching the 300k this year or early 2019... And for my 40, a 400k....???!!!!

My debt situation on date of June 20, 2018

Margin debt: $99 133.43

Tuesday, June 19, 2018

Despite difficult times, my net worth value is now at its highest value ever, HELLO sexy $229 875. GO GO GO!

I didn't post anything in a while. I had been busy with a mix of stuck in the usuals + the Francos Festival that went on in Montreal. I had been away for my blog, but I always find time to connect online and watch on my precious stocks. Things are quite hard right now and its quite difficult to have money invest in the stock market. Donald Trump is shaking up things baby! Trump is himself a really difficult and hard man. I truly understand why he's separating immigrant children from parents who cross illegally into the United States. It's terrible, its hard, but its one of the best decision he can take in order to slow down the flow of illegals crossing in the USA and its a good thing. That way, we ensure that those illegals don't continue their journey and enter illegally in Canada. It's certainly sad, but the US and Canada cannot save the world. We should be doing the same thing in Canada. We cannot welcome everybody, its the sad reality, and some hard actions need to be taken and Donald Trump is doing what he feels is right for his country and he's right about this. No one is doing nothing to stop illegal immigration. Donald Trump is not afraid to get his hands dirty. And I love that.

At this time, my portfolio is even doing better than on June 1st, which was when I posted my highest value ever registered before. My non-registered portfolio closed today session at $183 306.26, my TFSA portfolio at $77 233.04, and my RRSP portfolio, stock only - closed today session at $3 8536.29. And the good news is that I currently estimated my net worth to be on the $229 875 value - just super close to the 230k right now. However, I don't know if it will last long. Donald Trump is causing a lot problems and was just really lucky to have a TSX in the 16 300 points right now. I am getting ready to get hurt and I am mentally prepared to see my TSX going under the 16 000 points. It's a painful experience each and single times.

Today, it shocked me when I read that Donald Trump accused Canadians of smuggling US goods... read it here. Well, its actually true! Families living across US-Canada borders ALL did so once in their lifetime at least... And the shoe thing, well, we might have done that a couple of times in my family and ALSO we had hide things in the car or on ourselves. We'll go shop with our old shoes and leave the old ones in the US. In the 80-90s, that was a common thing. Personally, with my hot body, my special spot to smuggle small things was my bra. Now, you all know. Get me naked if you want to see what I hide and I will be pleased to show you all what I have Mr. President of the United States.

However, with all the drama, no more smuggles. I doubt Canadians will ever shop in the US ever again. I know I won't. FUCKU USA.

Celebrating my highest value ever with a net worth of $226 801.92

This past weekend, I updated my portfolio, without posting any comments, which is a shame, especially knowing that I had reached my highest value ever., but I had been busy enjoying the nice weather. A net worth of $226 801.92 begins to make a lot of money. And if I would have published a portfolio update, I guess I would be around the 228k net worth value. Today, my non-registered portfolio closed the session at a very good $183 891.78, my TFSA portfolio at $76 278.38 and my RRSP (stocks only) at $38 023.09.

Despite the current insecurities, overall, my portfolio is performing well and I am not surprised. I wrote about this many times before, but I will say it again: I stopped trying to understand the stock market a long time ago. There's that contrarian velvet that englobes the stock market and its a mystery of its own. Sometimes, the very bad news is being announced, but what seems to be really bad to us, normal human creatures, doesn't have a hard effect on the stock market. And I am not suffering anymore because absolutely no one can know for sure how good or bad things are going to on the stock market. It has a soul of it own and its a really difficult one to follow. However, I appreciate today gains. The stock market is like God, you can only admire it from far and when it gives you what you want you to love him and when your life is shit you hate him. This actually resumes briefly what my relationship to God is and I am among the most miserable selfish Christian of all time. But no matter what, from time to time, the Holy Spirit hit me and make me place some real good investments. And I share it all with you so He can one day forgive me.

Other than being richer than ever before, a few great things are going on in my portfolio. Andrew Peller Limited (ADW.A) announced today awesome results and a dividend increase of 13.9%. For the first time in a real long time, Nutrien Ltd. (NTR) registered a gain inside my non-registered portfolio. I am thinking about selling partly NTR. My Agrium shares were a much better investment, Agrium was my super stock, I registered really good capital gains. But with NTR, its a completely different story, and I came to hate seeing day after day my NTR shares  Selling partly my investment in NTR - or all - since I hate it so much - could be an easy fix to downgrade the usage of my margin. I am currently sitting on a $99 283.83 margin. Its high, and I must admit that I sometimes pay my credit card using my margin, but at a point, a girl needs to live. And anyhow, I am the best with my pretty $226 801.92 net worth.

Aphria Inc. (APH) closed the trading day on a halt trade. There could be more gains for APH tomorrow. Another great news: today my cherish stock WSP Global Inc. (WSP) opened the TSX today. BING BIG BING.



And by the same way, it seems like investors had waked up. Now, everyone knows the existence of  WSP, the stock closed the session surfing on a gain of 4.33%.

Welcome in my TFSA portfolio WSP Global Inc. (WSP)!

The delisting of Pure Industrial Real Estate Trust (AAR.UN) left me with a little sum in cash to invest back somewhere in the TSX. I decided to invest in WSP Global Inc. (WSP). In result, my RRSP portfolio closed today session at $75 497.72. My non-registered portfolio closed today session at $182 971.72, and my RRSP portfolio - stocks only - closed at $38 204.24. I am quite please with those numbers. I am also really please with this new investment, I truly believe that WSP is a strong safe bet. under the current circumstances.

Donald Trump is doing everything that is on his power to put stress over the NAFTA negotiations and Justin Trudeau is acting childish like a little boy again. Trump is a very hard and difficult man to deal with. Now that Trump decided to punish us with new tariffs on steel and aluminum imports, now more than ever is time to open the dialogue. Justin Trudeau had a meeting planned with Trump, but he had decided to cancel it following Trump announcement. Its seem to me like the USA are really not in needs of our importation in term of steel and aluminum. Justin Trudeau should read this article. Later or sooner, Trump will need get smoother, but for now, this is a tactic to make us close quickly a NAFTA deal that could be hurtful for us on the long run. Rather than opening the dialogue back to back, Trudeau simply turn down Donald Trump and try to reacted like a man by taxing the US for an amount of $16.6 billion. See, this is what happen when a Quebecker endorsed the role of Prime Minister. Bad decisions are being made. Quebeckers are well known for their lack of senses and intelligence, and we have a another proof of that residing in the person of Justin Trudeau. His mother is suffering from mental illness and Trudeau has the same bad genes. We are going to suffer and its the fault of all those dummies who had voted for the Liberal Party. 

Trudeau made this announcement too quickly. Trump is a monster, an aggressive man and he certainly won't get himself beat down by little Canadians. Its time to act simply, gently and kiss his ass. First, Trudeau should had gone to that meeting, discuss with Trump, and if no solution was find, well than, and only way AFTER apply that $16.6 billion as a good lesson to our US "friends". 

Currently, I am not impress with Justin Trudeau. We had all of our chances with China. The arrangement between Aecon Group Inc. and CCCI won't proceed because Justin Trudeau rejects it. We are in great need of trade partnerships - China could had been of a great help. Now, thanks to Justin Trudeau, we can't rely on the US or on China. With who are we going to trade now? 

Anyhow, this is scary, but react calmly. The TSX is a wild bitch and seem to like chaotic situations. She loves drama, it makes her feel alive. From my side, I invested in WSP - a Quebec stock!!! - today and I don't care about anything else, or almost.

Pure Industrial Real Estate Trust (AAR.UN) no longer trades on the TSX

As you learned in the previous post, I will be turning 38 years old in 3 months. So time is passing by and I need to act fast. However, no worries, while getting ready to pay for my groceries today, I was asked - once again, because it had happened before - if I was a student. I should have answered yes. I would have received a discount, but I will next time. Looking young need to serve at something after all. I think I could have been the mother of the cashier actually... I get extra excited whenever I am being asked if I am a student, it's my turn on.

Yesterday was a really difficult day on the TSX. It's quite scary to see the TSX going on so easily under the magical mark of 16 000 points. If you want a proof that anything related to bad Euro news is bad for the stock market, well, you had received the proof of that yesterday. Italy had been dealing with problems for decades now. It's not an escape from the Euro zone that will resolve anything, just like its not the upcoming elections in Quebec province that will resolve anything. It take willingness and discipline to resolve problems. One thing is missing out from Quebeckers to be successful: the smartness of a New Brunswicker mind - and that being of course all the power of my intelligence. Some like me are really practical and aren't affraid of absolutely anything. The brighness resides in the fact that I am smart enough to spot the perfect good stock, even if they are Quebec ones.

On another note, one great stock of mine had been delisted from the TSX: Pure Industrial Real Estate Trust (AAR.UN). Pure Industrial had been acquired by Blackstone Property Partners and Ivanhoé Cambridge. In result, AAR.UN got delisted. Sad thing and it's leaving me with the dirty task to find a new stock to invest in inside my TFSA. Since WSP is performing so well inside my portfolio. NA and BMO had announced a dividend increased. However, bank stocks can be quite sensible to any Euro bad news, so I won't invest again in a bank stock for now - I am that really smart.

I have a crush on WSP Global Inc. (WSP). I am simply taking advantage of my pure money love.

And during that time, I am trying to figure out the destiny of my margin account since its being said that the Bank of Canada will increase rate this summer...

Nothing is easy in this word but I can still kick ass with my precious WSP shares.

In the search for a new killer stock

I am having a bit a trouble with my non-registered portfolio. It closed this past Frday session at $182 006.15. My fabulous PBH closed at $116 per share - which hurt inside my portfolio value. My TFSA portfolio closed at 75 788.40, and my RRSP (stocks only as always) $37 908.89. PBH is making it quite difficult to hit on the oh so wanted $230 000 net worth. It hard to believe that time is passing by so fast - we almost the end of May, and June will be coming in a hurry and in case you didn't notice, I will be turning 38 in 3 months. It would be nice to have at leats a 230k by that time. 

Currently, my obssession is to find another great stock as great as my WSP one. Can I possibly do that?
 

Thank you
