The Dividend Girl knows best

My non-registered portfolio is doing very well! I hit the 116 191.27$ today, which is quite amazing. I never taught I would be hitting the 116k anytime soon. The 120k is not too far away, that’s for sure.

At this point, I need to be extra careful on how I invest, in what I invest and also I need to be careful with the current investments that I hold. I once wrote a blog post about my troublemaker stocks. Among those troublemakers, I have Colabor Group Inc. (GCL).

Colabor Group Inc. (GCL) is the perfect example of what a troublemaker stock is. A troublemaker stock is an investment that is not secured. The problem with Colabor Group Inc. (GCL) is that the company made a bunch of acquisitions one after the other, very very quickly. The Fonds de solidarité FTQ has offered an unsecured subordinated loan of 15 millions. Nice, but it could not be enough to secure Colabor high dividend yield of 10%.

I won’t recommend to any of you readers to invest in GCL at this time. Richard Dufour of La Presse reported that GCL may be paying a too high dividend. Could Colabor Group Inc. (GCL) be the next Yellow Media Inc. (YLO)? It could be. Before falling into the state of a penny stock, YLO was paying a generous dividend of 12%.

I consider myself lucky. Currently, I am experiencing a capital loss of 185.60$ on Colabor Group Inc. (GCL). I am looking forward to reduce my position in Colabor Group Inc. (GCL).

In a lot of ways, my investment in Colabor Group Inc. (GCL) has a lot in common with another Quebec company I unfortunately hold in my portfolio, Rogers Sugar Inc. (RSI). RSI value price is under what I had paid for it. At a bit more than 6%, the dividend yield is reasonable, but the RSI is not a stock that grow in value, no matter how good or how bad the economy is going. From what I remember, I never made a capital gain on this one. I am currently experiencing a capital loss of 37.87$ on this stock, which I have to say, is not too bad. However, I would like to reduce my position in Rogers Sugar Inc. (RSI).

In the past for me, it was a dividend rally. My goal was to increase my dividend income. But focusing too much on the dividend income can be a trap. Some small caps can turn into very ugly situation. Here on the dividend girl blog, we have experiment a variety of ugly situation. Remember Yellow Media Inc. (YLO)? That was very nasty ugly. And just recently, Heather Munroe-Blum, the principal and vice-chancellor of McGill University herself resign from involvement in Yellow Media inc. (YLO). I wonder if she’ll resign from Royal Bank as well. Anyway, I don’t care about RBC, I do not hold RBC Royal Bank (RBC) in my portfolio and I don’t suggest RBC as an investment. Back on May 12, 2011, Heather Munroe-Blum was purchasing 10 000 stocks of Yellow Media Inc. (YLO). This is the kind of very fresh lady getting overpaid for what she does and making McGill University students overpaying for their tuition fees.

Heather Munroe-Blum is certainly not a reader of the Dividend Girl blog because on May 3, 2011, me, the Dividend Girl, I was selling ALL of my YLO stocks at 4.65$. It was a genius move. I had been able to cash major part of my investment and following what, I had reinvested the money in Exchange Income Corporation (EIF). A brilliant move that Heather Munroe-Blum certainly didn’t follow. I don't think that Heather Munroe-Blum have a good pulse of the stock market.

Some people are dumb enough to enrol in those so calls best universities. McGill University is considered as one of the best university of the country. But is it the case? I don’t think so. You need to be a dumb to enroll at McGill University, agree to pay thousands of $$$ in tuition fee. I mean come on.

I decided to do better than that. :)

No matter what readers are leaving as comment, I perfectly know what I am doing. When I invest in a stock, the stock is perfectly selected to fit in the gem that is my investment portfolio. I am publishing all of the comments to show the stupidity of the readers. I don’t have anything to proof, I don’t feel like having to debate my points because guess what, the stock market, it’s the kind of stuff I handle well and it’s always getting better, better and better.

Let the Dividend Girl be and EXPLOSE in profit.
