Meet my top investment stock picks: only the best for your portfolio

Do you now understand why I just hate the stock market right now? Yesterday, the TSX was up by more than 100 points and today, its off. Not by 100 points, but still. And in result, my non-registered portfolio closed today session at $126 803.20. Something I really dislike is having my portfolio only standing at $125 000. At close to 127k, things are not so bad, but I am still far from the usual 130k+ value. The TSX goes up and down for no special direction and its disgusting. 

However, those rough time make it the very perfect occasion to evaluate an investment portfolio. Which stock continue growing despite the rough stock market conditions? Which stocks are falling behind with the TSX? Which stocks are cutting their dividend? Which stocks had increased their dividend income?

To start, here's the list of the stocks that are still on profit in my portfolio:

Agrium Inc. (AGU): +77.51%
Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS): +17.40%
BCE Inc. (BCE): +20.81%
Canadian National Railway Company (CNR): +103.65%
Canadian Utilities Limited (CU): +17.26%
Cineplex Inc. (CGX): +44.47%
Corby Spirit and Wine Limited (CSW.A): +127.82%
DH Corporation (DH): +199.86%
Emera Incorporated (EMA): +22.51%
Enbridge Inc. (ENB): +57.19%
Enbridge Income Fund Holdings Inc. (ENF): +89.48%
Fortis Inc. (FTS): +51.72%
JFT Strategies Fund (JFS.UN): +39.14%
K-Bro Linen Inc. (KBL): +140.89%
Lassonde Industries Inc. (LAS.A): +19.84%
Loblaw Companies Limited (L): +57.54%
iShares S&P/TSX Capped REIT Index ETF (XRE): +11.96%
Methanex Corporation (MX): +279.19%
New Flyer Industries Inc. (NFI): +58.77%
Pembina Pipeline Corporation (PPL): +143.96%
Premium Brands Holdings Corporation (PBH): +97.46%
Saputo Inc. (SAP): +25.08%
Stella-Jones Inc. (SJ): +72.37%
TMX Group Limited (X): +11.96%
Toronto-Dominion Bank (TD): +9.10%
TransCanada Corporation (TRP): +18.59%
Westshore Terminals Investment Corporation (WTE): +19.43%

I had been holding all of those stocks for quite sometime - to learn when they were first purchased, you can search them on my blog search engine. As for the stocks that are from my non-registered portfolio but who don't appear on the list, they are stocks that I had lose money on. This mean that their capital value is down.

At first sight, this list could seem without any value - but you are wrong if you think that. You are currently viewing my top investments. I had been investing in stocks for the past 8 years and right now, you are facing the best damn stocks of the Canadian market - nothing else! Watch out closely. I am giving out for FREE what could look like the best PORTFOLIO on EARTH. (OR almost). All that to say that yeah, sometimes, you can be lucky and you just don't know it. 

I could redo the exercise and name all the stocks I had lose money on and their losing percentage. But since I am already having a hard time facing the ups and downs of the stock market, you will excuse me, I am passing on that one. And its about the same reason why I didn't post an update of my portfolio. I only update - most of the time - my portfolio when it had gained in value. And as you know, I didn't update my portfolio in a really long time. At this time, my overall portfolio is not on a growth mode and its been that way for too long now.

I love to invest when the stock market is on the high but generally following an acquisition, it quickly gain in value. But it haven't been that way in a while. And its why that I think that I am facing the what I consider the most difficult time of my life.
