I vote Hélène Laverdière, Jack Layton NPD Laurier/Ste-Marie

Today is the first day of spring that I am wearing sandals. I vote earlier this morning and I made a big X just next to Hélène Laverdière name! It’s great to see that some Quebeckers are intelligent enough to dissociate themselves from the Bloc Québécois. We’ll see what happen next for those lost soul of Quebeckers.

In the meantime, I learn that Bin Laden is dead. This is so unreal. I guess the man is better dead than alive because no one had ever been able to keep track of him. I even believe is dead is accidental, that he wasn’t directly target but got kill, among other... I didn’t read too much about this as I felt sad. Not about his dead, but what it represent as a dead.

Ironically, my powerful silver is going DOWN!!! NOOOOOOO! lol... Previously, I wrote on how much I was excited to invest in the real Sprott silver, the one in US dollars, the real deal: Sprott Physical Silver Trust ET (PSLV)! But as for now, and the trading day is not over yet, PSLV is down of 6.81%. It’s been reported that Eric Sprott had sold for $35 million of PSLV units last week. WHY? This had to happen just at the time I made my first investment in US dollars. I also hold PHS.U in my TFSA and RRSP. I don’t plan to sell, I will look forward will happen next. This is an example among other of the importance of diversification inside a portfolio. Silver yes, but not silver only.

On the other hand, my investment in TMX Group Inc. (X) is doing well. Back in February of this year, I had invested in 100 stocks of X, at 41.97$ per stock. That represents some money! I invested without thinking too much. I was totally into the merger with London. Since February, TMX title went below 41.97$. I did not worry too much about it as I was confident the title would have go up again. And it did. We are not back to the 41.97$ yet, but not too far away. And a merger deal is not too far away either. Deal or no deal, my investment in TMX Group Inc. (X) would have been a constructive one.

My investment in TD bank is doing well. I would had liked to sell when the title had hit the 86$ a couple of weeks ago! But it was cleared to me that Toronto Dominion Bank (TD) could easily hit the 90$ per stock... so I didn’t sell. But still, a profit of 75$ is quite something. Not to forget the dividend of Toronto Dominion Bank (TD) that I should be receiving soon.

Just Energy Group Inc. (JE) continues to beat my expectations. At more than 15$ per stock, now, investors have the proof that JE is very strong!

I am also completely amazed by my investment in Westshore Terminals Invest Corp (WTE.UN)! So far, I made a good 200$ gain on my investment – and not to forget the dividend!

I could name plenty of examples like that. Its all about investing in what you believe in.

New Flyer Industries Inc. (NFI.UN) title is going up! I have 4 hold and 2 buy for this one. It’s not time to sell NFI.UN now, the title will gain value again. In other words: everything is under control. :0)

I would like to sell Yellow Pages. That's the only thing I don't like in my portfolio right now. I want to get ride of the poorly manage company ASAP.

Happy voting Canada!

Be careful with Silver - it can retrace at least 30% by summer. Good Luck.

Yellow Media is a tough one to hold. Hopefully it moves up so I can sell. Maybe Google might buy them out or someone else. Wishful thinking at this point
