Welcome Corby, 100 new stocks of Corby Distilleries (CDL.A) in my investment portfolio

I wake up… at 4PM. I arrived at home early, around 2 :35AM. I had to wait about 15 minutes before catching up a taxi. I have to say, the sleep was good. I usually wake up at 10AM in the morning. It’s actually what I had been able to go. I am slowly getting use to my new schedule. I taught I was working on Boxing Day and guess what, I am finally not working. I do not work on Monday, but at my other job I do, so I might get up earlier or do the shift until late to get some money for the Boxing Day. I wouldn’t like to get more debts than what I have now…

If I spend 300$, it will be good. I am not really in needs of anything, unless a little pair of shoes I could leave at work. I don’t like to be working with boots in my feet. So at one job, I left my Nike shoes, and at the daytime one, I could be wearing a cheap pair of shoes. I don’t like to carry too much stuff with me when I move from a job to go to the other one. It’s easier than I taught. Guess the money really motivate me. And I am actually amazed on how much I can save. Living in Montreal is a blessing. The cost of living is relatively inexpensive and this allows me to save big bucks every month.

And talking about money, I currently have 1 593$ available in cash in my new broker account! I just notice it right now… Of course, whenever I log in to my laptop, I first go pay a visit to my online investment portfolio at TD Waterhouse, after I took a look at my new broker account (sorry, I won’t say with who it is to keep my employer name private lol)…

The trade commission being exceptionally low, I can easily purchase 100 stocks of Corby Distilleries (CDL.A). On Friday, Corby Distilleries (CDL.A) close at 15.33$. So I am placing my order right now for Monday! I place my order at the limit price of 15.40$. My new online broker account is very easy to use. It’s let’s user print out there orders… Nice, but my printer is in its box, with no ink.

Wouldn’t be time to update our dividend income?

Sprott Inc. (SII): 505 x 0.10$ = 50.50$
Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS): 104 x 1.96$ = 203.84$
Methanex Corporation (MX): 103 x 0.62$ = 63.86$
Fortis (FTS): 104 x 1.04$ = 108.16$
Pembina Pipeline Income Fund (PIF.UN): 407 x 1.56$ = 634.92$
Just Energy Income Fund (JE.UN): 411 x 1.24$
+ 82.20$ of the 2009 special dividend = 591.84$
Yellow Pages Income Fund (YLO.UN): 420 x 0.804$ = 337.68$
Bell Aliant Regional Communications Income Fund (BA.UN): 100 x 2.904$ = 290.40$
Pengrowth Energy Trust (PGF.UN): 6 x 0.84$ = 5.04$
Enbridge Income Fund (ENF.UN): 300 x 1.152$ = 345.60$
Corby Distilleries (CDL.A): 100 x 0.56$ = 56$
= 2 687.84$
+ let’s say 100$ from the DRIP= 2 787.84$

My new acquisition just bring a little 56$ to my dividend income. But a 56$ is still a 56$ and since Derek Foster hold Corby Distilleries (CDL.A) in his portfolio, I had to hold some Corby Distilleries (CDL.A) stocks in mine too lol, even if we are talking of only 100 stocks. Little investments here and there can really make a difference at the end.

Friday during the day, the value of my portfolio gain major bucks. But at the end of day, it was a back-to-normal situation. My new Corby Distilleries (CDL.A) acquisition adds value to my portfolio. It’s actually adding 1 533$ to my overall portfolio…. My units and stocks investment portfolio is currently at 34 658$, which represent an increase of 760$ compare to December 5th. For my overall portfolio, let’s be super optimistic and say its all increase of 1 000$ this last Friday.

Here’s the maths:

1 000$ + 61 095.40$ (which is the value of my portfolio on December 5th) + my new investment of a 1 533$ value…
= 63 628.40$

It’s difficult to imagine I own that much…. I am actually only missing 36 371.60$ before reaching 100 000$. I believe this can happen for me in 2010. This is the ultimate goal, let’s say. I will certainly continue to invest in 2010. I am just so into that thing right now! In the last couple of weeks, my portfolio grow and got stronger with Bell Aliant Regional Communications Income Fund (BA.UN) and Enbridge Income Fund (ENF.UN).

The weekend on, I want to see Avatar at the theater, the new movie of Canadian James Cameron. I like his blue soft characters; they are very exotic and sexy.
