I spent my Saturday evening counting my every single pennies. I haven't post an update of my investment portfolio since... March. So it was about time! The value of my overall portfolio is quite similar to what it was back in March.
I had some stocks I am experiencing some trouble with stuff like Horizons Gold Yield Fund (HGY), First Majestic Silver Corp (FR), Veresen Inc. (VSN), Kinross Gold Corp (K), Just Energy Group Inc. (JE), EnCana Corporation (ECA), Canfor Pulp Products Inc. (CFX), Colabor Group Inc. (GCL), Crescent Point Energy Corp (CPG), Firm Capital Mortgage Investment Corporation (FC), and Heroux-Devtek Inc. (HRX). On those, I am in the red, I am loosing money.
Silver and gold are experiencing volatility and its not helping me in any way. That's why I am having problem with HGY, FR, K, and not to add Sprott Physical Silver Trust ET (PSLV), Sprott Physical Silver Trust UTS (PHS.U) and Sprott Physical Silver Trust UTS (PHS.U). I unfortunately hold quite a bit of Sprott silver shit! In my US account, my TFSA AND RRSP account... And this is not helping me in anyway. However, I plan to hold on those troublemakers for now.
On the other hands, some of the stuff I hold are seriously kicking some ass, including Eric Sprott one. Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS), Methanex Corporation (MX), Pembina Pipeline Corporation (PPL), Fortis Inc. (FTS), Pengrowth Energy Corporation (PGF), Enbridge Income Fund Holdings Inc. (ENF), Corby Distilleries Limited (CDL.A), Davis + Henderson Corporation (DH), Premium Brands Holdings Corporation (PBH), iShares S&P/TSX Capped REIT Index (XRE), New Flyer Industries Inc. (NFI), Exchange Income Corporation (EIF), Rogers Sugar Inc. (RSI), Student Transportation (STB), TMX Group Inc. (X), K-Bro Linen Inc. (KBL), Westshore Terminals Invest Corp (WTE), WesternOne Inc. (WEQ), TransCanada Corp (TRP), Canadian National Railway Co (CNR), Enbridge Inc. (ENB), Agrium Inc. (AGU), Canadian Utilities Limited (CU), JFT Strategies Fund (JFS.UN), Bombardier Inc. (BBD.B), Black Diamond Group Ltd (BDI), Cineplex Inc. (CGX), Barrick Gold Corp (ABX) and BCE Inc. (BCE).
I am seriously kicking Eric Sprott ass on Methanex Corporation (MX). I purchased my stocks at $15, and now well... go check yourself, you,ll see how much MX worth now.
At this point, I did what I wanted with my money, I invest in what I wanted, I don't have much more investment inspirations if not to invest in Suncor. This is why I concentrated in paying my debt for the past couple weeks and I am happy with the results. I only have left $771.20 to pay on one of my credit line. I plan to pay if off by the end of October. Once completed, I will jump on my $11 140.17 TD Visa credit card debt. It doesn't look like TD is going to give me another promotional interest rate for credit card balance transfer. I haven't received news of any promotion so far... And this might be a good thing actually.
I am a woman of the extreme, if I would had been offer a promotion again, I wouldn't be working at paying some of my debt at this time. And considering I pretty much have the portfolio I always wanted to have, with everything I ever wanted in it. I currently have something like $200 cash in my TFSA. I would like to transfer a $800 and following what, I could make my move on Suncor in my TFSA.
Right now, the woman of the extreme is doing 2 things at a time: I am paying off some debt AND I am also dieting. I had loss 5 lbs so far, which is great, but I constantly have to watch myself. Its not hard for me to keep in mind that I am on a diet because I now have a scale and I use it every day and I write down how much I weight. This could sound like an obsession, but getting on the scale everyday is what's helping me the best, I find. Because I easily forget about things and I am use to go straight one thing to another and so in the past, I forgot numerous times that I was on a diet... But not this time, its not going to happen. I think losing a 10 lbs per month will work well with some walking around and by watching what I eat. I wouldn't like to spend money to go at the gym so I 'll try my way. I will also write a post about dieting; you'll be able to learn my dieting secrets.
In the meantime, go eat a f apple!!!
