Turning 34 in 27 days so be ready

Unfortunately, my non-registered portfolio pull back to the 137k value. Despite everything I wanted for my portfolio, I didn't buy anything else and its probably the best decision I could take. After reading and reading again about an upcoming correction, I began to think it was all a joke... but maybe not after all!

Time is passing by too quickly, the month of July is already gone and in 27 days, I will be turning 34... what about that? I already bought myself one of my first birthday gift - a little necklace I bought at La Baie downtown tonight. I probably give you a picture of it later on.

Knowing how rough its going to be on the market - its already rough - I probably going to try to concentrate on paying of my student loan and I will try to leave a 1k on each of my bank accounts to get rid of the fee. To do so, I just need a bit than a $5 000 - almost nothing at all. I would be nice to clear my student loan debt before I hit... 35. That will be next YEAR.

My new necklace is very pretty, I will wear it tomorrow. And tomorrow is FRIDAY thanks you God for another summer weekend.

My experience at Au Pied de Cochon Food Truck

For the really first time ever, my non-registered portfolio pop the 138k mark! I closed today session at a good $138 253.16. The $140 000 portfolio is not too far away. I didn't know that until now, but let say I celebrate the big boom at Au Pied de Cochon! 

I watch a TV show last night, Les Chefs at Radio Canada. Its a French Quebec TV show were cooks compete between each other. And the special guest was Martin Picard, who run Au Pied de Cochon. Yesterday, the cooks had to do a poutine au foie gras and a twist hot dog home made. It was fun to match and it gave me the idea - I guess like many others - to check on where could be the Au Pied de Cochon food truck today. They have Facebook page where they display their schedule and emplacement. Today, the food truck was at McCord Museum right downtown, the perfect and easy location.

I order a number 2 special but unfortunately for me, they didn't have any Maple soda - I had to switch for a bottle of water - and they didn't have any petite bricohe sucrée (that's a dessert) - I had an unwanted switch to the oreilles de crisse... And I also had a poutine au foie gras (wanted) and something they call a verrat (kind of a pogo that come with a sauce of your choice - I had picked cheddar). The poutine au foie gras came in a small portion - but was very good. All together, the meal was quite heavy.

I am very curious about the maple soda and the brioche sucrée of Gabrielle, so I guess I will have to go back by the end of the summer, and I will try to take a few pictures at the same time.

Could Input Capital Corp. (INP) be my next fabulous?

My non-registered portfolio complete the day at $137 948.72 - so close of the $138 000, its amazing. Lately, I chat a bit on ways to make easy money quick and easy, one way, with Lumenpulse Inc. (LMP), the other way, on JFS.UN. Great, but something catch my attention today on the Financial Post.

There was that article about Input Capital Corp. (INP). Basically what the article say is that INP could easily double in value in a small amount of time... After reading about Input Capital Corp. (INP), I began to feel the say way I did for Lumenpulse Inc. (LMP) a little way back - a must have for quick easy cold cash. INP have something like 6 ranks Buy at TD Waterhouse.

I find Input Capital Corp. (INP) quite interesting. When you hear the name, you could think oh no, not another mutual fund company! But no-no-no. Input Capital is a bank for farmers. They help friendly farmers to expand their business and stuff. Sound interesting? Oh yeah!

Lumenpulse Inc. (LMP): the new Quebec gold mine

My non-registered portfolio hit on the $137 447.52 value today. I have more than 15k left on my margin and I am very tempted by investing a 2k inside my TFSA. I previously explain how I made $500 on JFT Strategies Fund (JFS.UN). For my next investment move inside TFSA, I am still interested by JFT Strategies Fund (JFS.UN), but for now, I have a different plan.

Currently, the Canadian stock market is a real summer paradise. My portfolios are performing well, great dividend and great capital gain overall. For now, the stock market is easy. Its the perfect time to move forward into a brand new investment plan. JFT Strategies Fund (JFS.UN) will always be hot, but right now, I want to make quick and easy cash.

I first invested in Lumenpulse Inc. (LMP) back in late April of this year and not even 3 months later, I made $111 on my investment. If I can make $100 every 3 months on LMP, I will be very happy. It may not be the case, but I think LMP is on a good position to bring generous cash to investors like the Dividend Girl if you see what I mean.

No one can know for sure, but I think that Lumenpulse Inc. (LMP) is a safe bet. With no dividend distribution, LMP can only be trade for the real cold cash.

Make some easy money by investing in the JFT Strategies Fund (JFS.UN)

Getting back to work after a vacation is always very hard. I find it awful to go back in the beat after a week. And even worst after a 2 weeks break, but its how it is for now. But no job mean no money and I need all the money of the world, especially now. I keep reading a bit everywhere about the probability of a stock market crash, a deep correction that could take away 25-30% of the current market value. I had been reading such news for a little while now. With my last paycheck, I had a $1 400 available and I decided to put the cash away to decrease my margin a bit. When the market crash, I hope to get my hands on cheaper stock.

At this point, its not too hard to control myself not to invest in anything because I didn't have any new investment in mind. When I saw I had a $1 400 available I wanted at first to transfer that money + $600 from my margin over my TFSA and make a 2k investment in the fabulous JFT Strategies Fund (JFS.UN).

I had been holding on to some units of JFT Strategies Fund (JFS.UN) since its initial public offering. I first heard of Jean-François Tardif a few years ago when he was still working at Sprott and of course, his performance on the stock market is what got me. And not too long after that, Tardif retired. During that time, I knew he wasn't going to stay away for long. When you had taste glamorous performances, interviews and everything else, can you really stay away from that for long? My answer to that had always be no. When you are a good fund manager, a real one remain in maybe not for life, but for a veryyy long time. The waiting time had been long, but when I learned that my Jean-François was coming back, it didn't take me long to call TD Waterhouse and jump in the IPO of JFT Strategies Fund (JFS.UN). Just sooo terribly smart move!

This time was more interesting to me because when Tardif was at Sprott, the fund he was managing wasn't accessible to small investors: it took $100 000 to enter into his fund. Now, everything is different and JFS.UN is better than any high fund or mutual funds because its easily accessible to any type of investors on the stock market. You can buy and sell some JFT Strategies Fund (JFS.UN) units anytime when the Canadian stock market is open. And I love that accessibility and it match perfectly well Tardif persona.

In a certain way, Jean-François Tardif shares a lot of things with Francis Chou. You won't read a lot about them, both are really not stars wanna be like Eric Sprott, but both are sooo mucch better than Eric Sprott in so many ways! F gold and silver.

Funny thing is that I almost the only blogger who keep writing about Jean-François Tardif so when I try to find out on Google if anything is new about him, well most of the time, I hit on my very own blog in my search results and it make me laugh every time. aha!

The JFT Strategies Fund (JFS.UN) doesn't pay any dividend but that doesn't really matter. I had explained already how I made $500 after commission on JFS.UN. But I am going to explain again to make sure everyone can understand how you can make $500 by $500 without having to do much.

The key is capital gain. But first, you have to know a bit of Jean-François Tardif history. When he was at Sprott, his fund was among the top performer in Canada and the crash of 2008 didn't change that. So what you got by investing in JFS.UN is precious. Not too much managers can exceed the TSX performances and not many of them have the power to protect the value of the money during rough time, and rough time could be ahead soon in a couple of months or less.

So this is how to make big bucks on the JFT Strategies Fund (JFS.UN). Try to get together a $2 010, get the money transfer if possible into your TFSA. By for 2k worth of JFS.UN units. Wait until the investment hit on $2 510. And when it does, sell for $500 value of JFS.UN units. Don't sell the initial 2k investment, that's your investment cash cow money. Repeat the operation every single time your JFS.UN invesment hit on the $2 510 value. Et voilà, that's how to benefit from the JFT Strategies Fund (JFS.UN). And the benefits are better inside the TFSA.

In my case, I made the operation inside my non-registered portfolio. I will have a bit of tax to pay, but i spend a bit during my vacations and I was in need of money. I would love to invest a 2k in JFS.UN inside my TFSA, but right now, my non-registered portfolio seem to be on a decreasing value and I am a bit scare for my margin.

On the other hand, I have $15 000 available on my credit lines and I could - like I did before, transfer some credit line money over my margin and get it back in the credit line one the market close... I did it before, so I can do it again right?

As you can see, I am not done dealing with my demons.

And Jean-François Tardif is my demon so stay tune because you can't really know what could happen next. Watch for it.

Thank you for the free cash Jean-François Tardif

Once again, the automatic sell order I had set up at TD Waterhouse didn't go through and I am quite upset about it - I will explain why. Anyhow, since I am in vacation, I just watch at the  JFT Strategies Fund (JFS.UN) value now on since TD Waterhouse is not reliable and tadammm... it was at $12.55. THANK YOU Jean-François Tardif for the "free" labor! I have to say that currently, TD Waterhouse is giving the value of $12.55 per unit to our famous JFS.UN. I once wrote that I was using Jean-François Tardif as cash cow and that's what I did. I wouldn't mind to use him as lover as well but that's something else.

Anyway, noticing that JFS.UN was at $12.55 on both platform, I look at my account activity but the order wasn't going through!!!! So I cancel the automatic sell order, went back in my account activity to see if it had went through anyway.. and no... so I made a sell order at the market for a few units (41 actually) of JFT Strategies Fund (JFS.UN) and the order went through right away!

What happen?

Its not that TD Waterhouse is that of a shitty broker --- its the Dividend Girl who is a shitty investor lol

Its because the bid was at $12.51 - the selling price. I sell at $12.51 and I am really happy because I had ranked with over $1k on my credit card and the $500 I collect today will help me to pay for all of my outrageous vacation spending. 

My mom is enjoying her stay and she's currently cooking lunch. She needs to come more often ;-)

JFT Strategies Fund (JFS.UN) hitting on the $12.54

The weather is quite hot these days in Montreal in the same week that my mom is visiting. I renew my sell order for a couple units of JFT Strategies Fund (JFS.UN) at $12.55. And today was so close! JFS.UN hit on the $12.54 per unit. I am just very tempted to change my order to $12.54 and get my hands on $500. It will only happen if JFS.UN hit on the $12.54. But $12.54 work as well. At a one cent different, its not that of a difference. So I decided to modify my sell order to $12.54.

All this is very strange but if I check JFS.UN value over my TD Waterhouse account, according to TD Waterhouse, JFS.UN hit on the $12.55 today... but its not the case when I check on the Web site... I pay a commission fee of $9.99 per sell, and per buy moves at TD Waterhouse, but they cannot even come and provide me accurate data for today highest value of JFT Strategies Fund (JFS.UN). Its kind of shitty knowing that a free Web site ( provide more accurate data than TD Waterhouse.. Something is wrong. 

TD Waterhouse suck and this time suck for real.

Thank you
