Welcome in my portfolio HealthLease Properties Real Estate Investment Trust (HLP.UN) and Bombardier Inc. (BBD.B)!

It’s now official: HealthLease Properties Real Estate Investment Trust (HLP.UN) and Bombardier Inc. (BBD.B) are now in my portfolio! My non-registered portfolio is at a very good $124 842.99. I am loosing count of my dividend, but I guess I am now at 7k or very closed now. Td Waterhouse should incorporate a tool for investors on the go who want to have a quick idea of how much they are going to earn in dividend. That would be nice and for once, TD Waterhouse could eventually incorporate something useful for once. You know, something to help investors. Do you understand? LOL. 

My portfolio is doing well these days. My non registered portfolio closed yesterday session at $123 074. The money advanced on the margin is of a very fat $50 486.40, and the money left, meaning the money available on the margin is of $17 551.54. A 17k left is very good. What I try to maintain as amount is 15k, but the higher the better.

I have some money left and I am very tempted to invest in a few stocks of DirectCash Payments Inc. (DCI). I also had been looking at what Derek Foster hold as Canadian asset in his Revised edition of The Lazy Investor. Derek Foster doesn’t hold much in Canadian dollars, but there’s at least one stock that seem to be interesting: Leon's Furniture Limited (LNF). DCI and LNF are both on my dream stock lists.

Leon’s is terribly boring, like do I really care about furnitures? I don’t care, but I am going to invest in it anyway, ONLY because it’s a stock hold by Derek Foster. Hey, I didn’t care much about linen when I first invested in K-Bro Linen Inc. (KBL) and KBL is now among my top stock performer. Thank you Susan Brunner (I find the stock on her blog). Watch out Leon's Furniture Limited (LNF): YOU ARE NEXT.

Following what, I am doing to invest in a boring blue chip, one of those who are something very strong for my portfolio, but pay little in dividend. And following what, we are not doing to be done yet so stay tune. I am tempted by a gold investment.

Lately, Gordon Pape has named my Claymore Gold Bullion ETF (CGL) as being among the best gold investment you can hold. I know it’s not Claymore anymore, but I don’t like the idea of holding it in term of iShare. I like diversification you know. Anyhow, now you know where Gordon Pape is getting his stock picks from: from the Dividend Girl baby.
