I am now at 86 047.56$

Nice day today. NB Power won’t be sell to Quebec, I had purchased 300 brand new units of Just Energy Income Fund (JE.UN)… live is good! I had left 1 077.99$ in cash on my TD credit line, which is great. In case of need, I will have cash available. I could invest in 100 units of Claymore Gold Bullion ETF (CGL) since the unit price is currently under the 10$ per unit but for more safety, I prefer to have some cash available somewhere.

Nice gain for Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS). Too bad the TSX lose points today. However, I update my investment portfolio since so many changes happen in the last couple of days.

I am at 86 047.56$. Also, my level of debts had increased.

Here’s an overview of the situation:

Total assets: 86 047.56$

Annual dividend income (non registered account): 3 933.56$
Annual dividend income (registered account): 306.40$
Total in dividend income: 4 239.96$

My debt situation:
Student loan: 8 464$ at 4.75% = 402.04$ in annual interest
Credit line: 4 840$ at 3.5% = 169.40$ in annual interest
Credit line: 3 922.01$ at 8% = 313.76$ in annual interest
RSP Credit line: 10 000$ at 4.75% = 475$ in annual interest
Credit card balance transfer: 5 000$ at 4.9% = 245$ in annual interest
Credit card balance transfer: 4 359.02$ at 3.9% = 170$ in annual interest

Total of debts: 36 585.03$
Total in annual interest rate: 1 775.20$
I calculate the interest rates on an annual basis, but the credit card balance transfer I have made are valid for 6 months only.

At this point, having more debts will make no sense. Its actually barely make sense at this point. I am fair play, I like to expose it all…

Here’s my net value:

86 047.56$ (total) in assets + 4 239.96$ in annual dividend income
= 90 287.52$

90 287.52$36 585.03$ (total of debt) – 1 775.20$ (total in annual interest)
= 51 927.29$

At this point, my net value is of 51 927.29$. Since my net value is more than 50 000$, I feel comfortable with my debt situation. At this point, I won’t apply for any more credit line, loan and I won’t borrow any more money using what I call my ping-pong method. At this point, I won’t go deeper in debts.

Did you notice, we are now at a 90 287.52$ (after adding the juicy dividend income). We have less than 10 000$ to go! Nice, but are we going to be able to make it? Yes, but…

I borrow money using credit card balance transfer on a regular basis. I did one back in November 2009 for the amount of 1681.78$ at 3.9%. This one will expire in May or April 2010. So what’s going to happen? If I do not receive a credit card balance transfer, I will have to sell some stocks. If we sell any of our investment, we won’t be able to make it, we won’t be able to reach our 100 000.00$ assets. The market seems to be fairly ok. I can invest 10 000$ in the next 10 months. That’s possible. But if I have to sell anything I hold to pay off one of my credit card balance transfer when they will expire…. I won’t be able to make it. And if not, my live will be ruin. I won’t be able to get my revenge on BMO Bank of Montreal who lay off me very unfairly.

So what are we going to do?
For that part, I don't know yet.
