My 2009 financial year in review

2009 had been a great year, financially speaking. Following Derek Foster strategy had been, so far, one of the greatest things I ever done in my entire life. And it’s all start in 2009, and it will definitely continue in 2010.

I had been working very hard at building myself a strong investment portfolio. And surprise: I was kind of successful at it! But for several months, I taught I was going no where, some of my investment had lost some great value. But I believe things were going to be better eventually. And it did. And I am very happy it did because I was in need of something like this. Doesn’t feel great to be successful at something, at least one thing? lol…. Anyway, the way I make it was pretty easy but it requires a lot of hard work because my situation on the workplace but…. Forget about those poor recruiters who didn’t want of me when it was time. And forget about those jobs that are under-paying me! I am going to make it just for all of those *******! (Got an idea of the word?) lol… And talking about personal revenge, I got part of that in 2009. I had my revenge but I am a fabulous investor.

It’s all about following your own ideas and doing what you believe is good for you financially speaking once you get a picture of the whole thing. Since I work more than 60 hours per week, I don’t have too much time to educate myself on finance and stuff, so I rely on Derek Foster a lot and, when I learn about Derek Foster fourth book, I just run to the Chapters as quickly as possible to get it.

Anyhow, to come back to my own strategy, among the way, I become addict to the stock market and I absolutely need to make at least a « purchase » if not every month, every 2 months or so of a new investment. If I don’t invest for more than 2 months, I feel unsatisfied ;o) and I always like it so much to add another company to my collection.

My way of investment can be seen as making no sense, but the most important thing is, I believe, to invest, even if are talking, in my case, small amount of money each time. But what’s fantastic in my case is that those small investments had, in many cases, grow and had provided dividend.

I am very happy with the results and with my financial experience of 2009. It’s been a brake-through experience as it was the first time ever I was purchasing stocks and units.

Here are some investments that turn pretty well for me:

Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS)
Initial amount invested: 4 661.55$

Profit made: +454.45$

Value on date of December 31: 2 795$

Total of profit made from my major stocks and units investment:
3 568.45$

And to this 3568.45$ we can add the 1 549.62$ I earned in 2009 from dividend. This make a total of 5 118.07$ in profit. Kind of nice!

What’s good about all this is that, thanks to Derek Foster, I am investor goddess and no one really knows about it :)

As you can see, it’s clearly possible to gain valuable money by investing in the stocks market. Those marvelous gains help me to recover from bad investments. In date of today, my good investment had did so well that I am about to reach the point where I am going to soon forget about my bad investment.

The key is to keep investing in different dividend paying companies and diversify-diversify-diversify! As you can see, I really like to diversify my investment portfolio!

Good investing party in 2010, the journey continues.
