Welcome in my non-registered portfolio Stornoway Diamond (SWY)! Go go go!

You'll hear a lot from me this week because this past Friday - yes, one day before my birthday - I got a procedure to have remove 2 upper wisdom teeth and I was told it would be better not to do any sport for a week. That happen now when I just very began to be slightly all beef up like Ronda Rousey and that I could eventually make Amir Khadir eat all his teeth. Imagine that he was actually at the Imperial Cinema yesterday evening. He was sitting a few seats away from me, impossible not to notice him. The man should just kick out of Canada in his native Iran. Amir Khadir is a real shame for our nation and just seeing him yesterday ruined all of what should had been a beautiful evening for me, in the luxury decor of the Cinéma Impérial. I cannot understand why in Canada we tolerate immigrants like Amir Khadir who are unfaithful to Canada as a nation and are unfaithful to the Queen. I don't tolerate his extreme arrogance.

To change of topics a bit, I discover a hot new pill: Novo-Profen 600 mg. It take away any inflammation syndrome without a few minutes. Real cool efficient drug which is really needed especially in the morning. I want to invest in the company that made that drug. LOL. If you have any teeth going to be remove, ask your dentist for the prescription of those magical Novo-Profen pills. You'll thanks me later. :-)

There's a lot of exciting things going on for the Canadian market at this time. Alimentation Couche-Tard Inc. (ATD.B) continue to acquire new businesses for millions and millions of dollars just like if they were... peanuts. The really recent acquisition of CST Brands for only US$3.7-billion was just not enough!! Alimentation Couche-Tard announced today the acquisition of 53 Circle K Stores Inc. in Louisiana. But we don't know for how much peanuts for this one...

I had invested in Andrew Peller Limited/Andrew Peller Limitee Unlimited Class B Share (ADW.B) back in April 2016. During Christmas time and some other times, we always drink at home some sherry. And its actually how I discovered Andrew Peller Limited, by being a fan lover of Regency Fine Old, name Canadian Apera, Fortified Wine. Its not available in Quebec province. With the cold weather coming ahead, I would like to have a bottle of Regency Fine Old at hand. Anyway, I cannot mix Novo-Profen with that other thing I love, Regency Fine Old.

Since the purchase, the investment had went down of about $300. I was anxious, but I never doubt that Andrew Peller was a good investment. I felt release when it begin to mark capital gain again. But that was only recently. Back on August 10, Andrew Pellar announced in a press release:

"Sales up 5.8% on broad-based solid organic growth and successful launch of new products and categories;
Gross margin rises on revenue increase and cost savings;
EBITA increases 15.2% on revenue growth and improved gross margin;
Net earnings rise 28.2% to $8.6 million or $0.62 per Class A share;
9% increase in common share dividends, seventh increase in ten years;
Board of Directors recommends 3-for-1 stock split; and
Board of Directors approves a Dividend Reinvestment Plan (DRIP)". 

"The annual dividend on Class A Shares was increased to $0.490 per share from $0.450 per share, and the annual dividend on Class B Shares was increased to $0.426 per share from $0.391 per share."

Many good things had been announced and it make me think: what am I doing with Class B shares in my portfolio anyway???? Now that my ADW.B shares are up, I am thinking of selling them and buy instead some Class A shares. By doing so, I will get my hands on 4 extra shares and I will be richer of a few dollars in term of dividend, so why not.

Swarovski crystals are very nice, but diamonds are certainly much nicer. For the first time in years, I had invested in a penny stock. I am always in the search of new stock to invest. Fact that September has 3 paychecks coming on is certainly helping. There's a lot of bad things in Quebec province, like Amir Khadir, but there's also a lot of good - sometimes. And Stornoway Diamond (SWY) is one of them. I jump in today at $1.14. No dividend, but the promise of maybe good cash that can be made. We'll have to see. Encouraging fact at least, Stornoway Diamond (SWY) has a good stock rank on Stockopedia, so stay tune.
