Welcome in my non-registered portfolio Lumenpulse Inc. (LMP)

I stopped my decision and decided to invest in Lumenpulse Inc. (LMP). I got a few shares at $19.57. The remaining money went to pay down my margin.

I kept thinking about placing this investment so I decide to go for it.

Crescent Point Energy Corp. (CPG) is on a halt trade

There's a new Trailer Park Boys movie that is currently playing and I couldn't help it, I need to see it! It was a fun stress releaser. I just adore The Trailer Park Boys. So hilarious! :)

I am busy at work these days and my mind is not straight up on what should I do with that 2k in cash that I have available. Is Lumenpulse inc. (LMP) is a safe bet? Should I simply use the money to pay down my margin debt? Pay down my student loan? Or invest? Its not that easy to make the move for several reasons. Strange work situation and too many choices!!!

I was surprised to see my non-registered portfolio down to 132k and a few dollars... but its all because Crescent Point Energy Corp. (CPG) is on a halt trade.

What to do with a $2 000?

I went to New Brunswick for a few days, I just came back yesterday. I will try to post some pictures later on. Before going, I went for my taxes and it went find, with only $500 extra pay in tax money - not too bad. Again, I pop up the 50k income for this year if I remember.

I didn't update my dividend income for April yet but it make a good $527.40 so far. With that money, I currently have at my disposal $2 000 and I keep thinking about what to do with the money. I have that $3 600 student debt that I was looking to pay back until.... I find out about Lumenpulse Inc. (LMP). I was thinking to invest a 1k in LMP inside my TFSA. But with only $3 600 in student debt, I could pay it down veryyyy quickly.

However, investing in Lumenpulse Inc. (LMP) is very tempting because I am very sure that this stock will just grow and grow and grow...

So I have that new idea, to leave a 1k in my bank account and just invest 1k in LMP.

One problem being that I prefer to invest and leaving money in the bank because some serious shit is happening at work, its unbelievable. We had once received an email previously this year saying that we were going to get a raise for April. Great, but a girl that been there for 5 years had been refused the raise for no specific reasons. I was quite shocked to learn the news because I don't know if I told you but I got a raise of more than 6k at work. The girl could had get a 1,5-2% raise I guess but nothing had been provide to her, even if we had received an email from the President saying that we were all going to have a raise. Why would the president write that kind of email to all employees if not all employees were not giving a raise? Soo cruel!

I find it a complete stupid act of cruelty and extreme arrogance. The girl is leaving at the end of the month, I guess she had find something else. Some other rude stuff like that had been going on for a while and its really sad. One day, the people responsible will have to pay of those cruel acts.

Stuff like this make me wanna leave just like her as fast as I can.

You have said shitty job in Montreal? Oh fuck yes.

The Father of the TFSA died today. RIP Jim Flaherty and thank you for the tax free dividend cash

We all knew the man was sicked - I even suspected him to be alcoholic when he was alive. Just a few weeks after he retired, Jim Flaherty died at home from a heart attack. It would had been great to watch his career in the private sector, but unfortunately, the father of the TFSA is no longer with us. Its been said that  he had children. My mom and dad are about the same age, and I wouldn't like to lose them so soon in life.

I had been quite busy since last week as I am trying to put more efforts on my freelancing activities. Its going on well and I could make 1k - $1 500 just my working part-time. Once job I had 2 years ago was suddenly cut off, but it started over again lately. Its rough to get back in the routine because a lot had changed. I have one project completed... so I slowly moving on. 

Even if I got a raised of more than $6 000 at work (yeah, yeah, you are reading correctly), I prefer to have something on the side because I don't trust my employer. See, my student loan will soon be paid off. After that, only my margin account will remain. I have a margin debt of $70 000. If I can save $30 000 a year or about, my margin could be paid in less than 3 years... And that's possible now because of my current raised and self-employed work. When figuring that out, I was quite impress. I could actually save enough to retire by 40. Maybe. And if now, I will have my dividend and self-employed to make my living.

You could imagined that I have a super job because I got a raised, but co-workers can be very fresh, just like the superiors. They are Quebeckers, so I barely talked to them, the strict minimum, a little talk, just what is needed. Its not a pleasure to be living in Quebec province, especially now that the Liberal Party had been elected. I don't know what the hell Quebeckers were thinking, but gees, this is getting grotesque. Just watch Quebec province flying sky high into debt. This is just another proof of how stupid the Quebec mass is. Some had forget that Liberal are all about bullshit. Short term memory, I guess. I mean really, everything I write about Quebec is true and of a very honest opinion. I am giving the view of an insider who's heart is outside Quebec and belong somewhere else. I cannot stand the level of selfishness. I cannot stand their lies.

Quebec can be what it is, sometimes, good thing pop up from the shit. Like Jean-François Tardif, for example. Celine Dion, if you like her. But here, at The Dividend Girl blog, we are about money. And I have find what could be my next pot of gold. And the pot of gold is right here in Montreal! In shit town. Exciting, ohhh yeah! 

The extraordinary thing is name: Lumenpulse Inc. Its an extreme interesting company - I will let you do your search. Once of its competitor in the US, Philips, currently trade at $35 per share. The thing is that Lumenpulse is about to pop up from the initial public offering on April 15. Unfortunately the IPO is not available at TD Waterhouse. Lumenpulse is starting at $16. I think this company had good chances to grow in its sector. The CEO is super interesting, kind of the like of Jean-François Tardif, very smart, could afford retiring because he's already millionaire, but won't because he want to see his business grow. And why seeking for retirement when you can be the king of the world? At least, Jean-François Tardif is MY king. But I guess you all knew that from now, unless you are not really reading or are blind from an eye, left or right.

Shoppers Drug Mart Corp. (SC) no longer trade on the TSX

This is getting exciting! Its official, Shoppers Drug Mart Corp. (SC) no longer trade on the stock market. My SC shares are frozen, and I cannot wait to received the maximum cash possible. Now that SC shares are frozen in ice, its just a matter of a few days before I get my $$$.

My non-registered portfolio is at a great $136 408.12 value right now. Once my SC shares will be sale off, my portfolio value will be lower, unfortunately. If I am lucky enough I could used a 2k of the sale to pay off my student loan but it will depend of my margin.

Wanna make money on the stock market? JFT Strategies Fund (JFS.UN) is a good option

Good dividend earnings in March with more than $500 in earnings. My non-registered portfolio close today session at $135 958, which is quite good. Lately, stocks like Black Diamond Group Ltd (BDI), Stella Jones Inc. (SJ) and Pembina Pipeline Corporation (PPL), among other. Even my Just Energy is going up up up so things are pretty hot. And Enbridge Inc. (ENB) is what we could consider a hot stock right now according to Rob Carrick. But before Rob Carrick, someone else taught about Enbridge Inc. (ENB) as good investment: Derek Foster! :) Smart investors who had followed Derek Foster from the start are really rich now.

With my upcoming paycheck, I will have 2k at my disposal. My tax declaration cost me $70 to be done. After what I probably going to have to pay max 1k extra in taxes. I would be surprise if it will be more. I have a 1k at my disposal. But to do what? I already have a good collection of stocks, I hold the best (yes!) :including JFT Strategies Fund (JFS.UN) of the love Jean-François Tardif. I check on the man - only on Google unfortunately - once in a while and in my latest search, the latest news about Tardif was a BNN interview, back in December 2013 I think. And at that time, he was saying that the US was the place to be - no matter if the market goes up or down. Well done, because nothing seem to beat the US. 

JFT Strategies Fund (JFS.UN) started with a slow grow, but I think the fund had proven now to be quite stable in value and grow, which is quite something. Other funds like the Sprott Canadian Equity Fund are only  good to make you lose money.

Derek Foster is almost 100% invested in the US market, smart guy, I could picks from his US picks and tadam, no problem, hello nice and easy cashhhhhhhh, marvelous cash. With only 1k, the dividend income wouldn't be much in the immediate so I have a better plan.

The balance of my student loan is of $3 634.25 and the monthly payment is of $98. I am much more interested in paying down my student loan to finally get rid of that monthly payment. I had paid off my credit lines, credit cards... I currently have no monthly payments to make if not my student loan and rent. Its getting interesting to pay off my student loan for that reason. After what, I could easily live on $1 200 per month, and I could push it down to the $920 per month. That could become true in 2 months from now (June)... So why not? Its the main reason why I am so interested in paying off my student loan now.

Ready to say good-bye to my Shoppers Drug Mart shares. Go go go!

The Shoppers Drug Mart acquisition by Loblaws was supposed to go through on - was it March 27 or something like it??? - but I still have all of my Shoppers shares right in my portfolio and its quite boring. So I am currently waiting and still waiting. I had been waiting for a really long time now, so I hope to deal will move on so I can lower the usage of my margin and I will try to stay that way.

I had been busy lately. A old part-time gig I used to have 2 years ago is about to get back to live and I could make good cash. And I will need it because this past Saturday, I went to do my tax declaration and its going to cost me $70 right there, not to include what I will need to pay extra in taxes, I am getting ready to pay an extra $800. It will be ready in 2 weeks. And in 2 weeks I will get another paycheck. Money is flying away but its not a bad thing.  

Stay tune to find out if I will get my cash from Shoppers Drug Mart - not time to write more unfortunately.

Shoppers Drug Mart acquisition by Loblaws to be completed to March 28th

It took a very long time, but it will finally happen. The Competitive Bureau approved Shoppes Drug Mart acquisition by Loblaws. I had picked the maximum of cash option way back, and I hope to get a few thousands in cash - maybe 3 if I am lucky - and only, please, a few Loblaws share. This remind me of the TSX acquisition deal. At the time, I had picked a maximum cash option too, and I was left with only a few TMX shares - which I don't mind holding now. Those shares are there to remind me of the shit deal - bankers holding on to the end to the Canadian stock market. And now, after selling the TSX to bankers, Thomas Kloet, certainly all proud of his accomplishments, is now calling for retirement. Happy retirement, loser! Bye bye, go retire to North Korea Thomas Kloet please, where you really belong.

I wouldn't mind to hold a few Loblaws shares - there will be no more SC shares when this come to real. This move will help me to lower the usage of my margin. I am currently at $72 687.86 on my margin. It would be nice to get it lower eventually. But with a margin at of more 70k, I have a long way to go before it get paid off. However, it never been a preoccupation of mine. What I do care is to keep my margin under control. Currently, I only have left 5k of unused money margin. Its not a lot. To keep things nicely secure, I need to inject 5k - and 10k would be actually much better to keep my margin secure and safer. But 10k is quite an amount, you understand, so I have fix myself to only 6k.

I own less than 4k on my student loan and its a complete shame not to pay it off. So here is the deal, I only need $9 634 to inject 6k on my margin and $3 634 to pay off my student loan. With 9 months left to go for 2014, I can do both of those things with $1 070.44 per month. So now you know what will happen for the next 9 months. I could deliver a baby in the next 9 months if I get pregnant like NOW. That's not going to happen anytime soon. I wish to get pregnant in my forties only, when all of my sexy youth be wild done and I guess that at that time, I will have nothing better to do than changing diapers, doing laundry, and cleaning, cooking and so on and on. Later please, only later and even never, I wouldn't mind.

I used to have some cash lying in my bank account - years ago. I only keep the minimum required in there now. I may be able to find a 2k to remain in my banking account so I can be just like in the old days and that way I won't have any banking fees. I don't have any cash and before putting any more money down to my student loan or margin, I would very much keep a 1k for each of my 2 banking accounts - that would make 2k.

Following what, a 6k payment on my margin and the repayment of my student loan...

2014 = painful year

Welcoming Spring, Investors!

Spring! Winter had been very long this year. Usually, winter in Montreal is not so bad but this year, it was like if the New Brunswick winter was in Montreal. I never went to a so cold winter in Montreal, it was quite surprising. Other than that, 2014 had been great so far. I paid off a credit line, credit cards and as you know, I only now have left my margin and student loan to pay off as debt. 

With only left $3 638.07 in student loan, paying it off is my next priority. However, before making any more extra payment on debt or whatever, I need to do my tax declaration for 2013. I certainly earn $50k this year + because I work all year long. I think I will have something like 1k or around to pay extra in taxes, and also, I probably going to have a few days of vacation for Easter in New Brunswick. 

I listen a bit to the Leaders Debate for Quebec next Prime. Nothing too much exciting. Quebeckers are paying millions for this election and the result will probably going to be the same. I don't think Liberals are strong enough to win. No Party have what it take. Legault, Couillard, Marois, David are not very interesting. And I don't find Quebec interests very interesting anyway. They are very fool selfish people and I do not belong here. Stucking in the money and one day I will be out of here.
