Happy portfolio time, at least

The week had been crazy. I am just drain out. It’s seem like it’s when I am the most exhausted that my portfolio is running at its best... I got a shift change for a week and it’s hard for me to adjust. So in result, I arrived late. But it’s not my fault. I mean I accept the shift change to help at work, so arriving a couple of minutes late shouldn’t be that much of a problem knowing I am almost always on time otherwise... Right? lol...

Funny thing is that it’s seem like it’s when I am at the most exhausted that overtime become available... This mean that for now, I can do extra hours at work and do what I had planned to do a long time ago: pay off some debt. But this time it’s for real. My portfolio is great just the way it is. I don’t have any more investment projects for now. I am done. But the results had been good and I enjoy my latest trades.

I didn’t post about this one, but a couple of days ago, I had invested in 200 stocks of Premium Brands Holdings Corporation (PBH) at 17.39$ in order to benefit from their latest dividend. My margin is over load but I plan to sell SII, DH and the latest 200 of PBH whenever I can make a profit from the sale and than, I have to say, I think I will be done with new acquisitions for a little while. I know I can make a profit out of PBH and the other. I am not in a rush to sell. I had been running for dividend but placing purchasing order before a dividend closing business date just to get more in dividend is not something I plan to do on a regular business. The latest investments I made were purely emotional, just as for everything else. My emotions make me buy more, but they never make me sell (or barely). This meaning I am able to control myself in order to not to sell and not lose money.

But lately, what happen is that I wanted more and with the margin account of mine, my cash flow is enormous. I don’t regret any of my investment. But I am at a point where the exhaustion is telling me to give it a break. I won’t sell my investments – if not just a few of them. My portfolio will remain. Just that now, it’s the exhaustion who’s telling me what to do.

The latest events had been quite too much for me to handle all at a time. And it’s not true I can handle it all. I hold many companies in my portfolio. Part of the exhaustion is coming to that. The other part would come from my personal life and the other part from my everyday life. Will the exhaustion ever end? I think it’s all in the head. I need to keep in control. I know somewhere I can control my debt situation and I can control my investments. It’s just a matter of schedule. It doesn’t take too much to bother me. Just a shift change and boom, my world is upside down. It’s just I had plan to get the night shift, which I had for 2 days. During those 2 days, I wrote on my blog, follow my investment, wrote my review of Dewitt & Maria movie (did you read it?) and done a lot of things I wanted to do for a long time. But now, I am back to the day shift and I wasn’t mentally prepared for that and look at me now. I am all f up. My night shift should come back again next week. I hope.

If you don't know anything about it, stay away from it and invest in stocks you understands. That's rule #1.
