Improvement for investors, the TSX can handle it

Life is good when the TSX is all up. I know, the TSX didn't gain points today, but it close at a good 14 733.22 and that's enough to make me happy and make a real difference. My net worth is now at an estimate of $175 367.36. My lost in Smith & Wesson Holding (SWHC) is now only of $277.38. My non-registered portfolio is now at $1425 20.36. The best news is not I am now only missing $4 633 to reach my old 180k net worth.

I sometimes like to get a look at the stocks that I flush behind. Sometimes, selling a stock is always a good and the best option that can be made. Like for example, the case of my old DH Corporation (DH) stocks. Back on October 26, DH lost close to 50% of its value in one day. The following day, I was selling DH, making a few hundreds in the process. I didn't want to hold to a such volatile stock. And I was scare of a dividend cut that could affect even more the stock price.

Selling DH was definitively the right thing to do. DH Corporation (DH) close today session at $14.17. Selling DH was just so the right thing to do! It left behind a gap in my portfolio. Its the main reason why my non-registered portfolio is at 142k instead of 150k. At its highest point, DH was trading at $40 per stock! Facing such trauma is not easy, but I am only missing a few thousands to get back in my feet. After all, I am the Girl.

Another investment that I sold a couple of weeks ago, was JFT Strategies Fund. Back in the days, Jean-François Tardif was THE MEGA good looking star on Bay Street. In the first 2 years of holding JFS.UN, I made money on the units, and I sell some for profit. But the months following that were not good for JFS.UN. Tardif began to say that he couldn't hope to do better than a 6% on the market. On date of today, JFS.UN closed the session at $14.30. JFS.UN is not performing and it remain not profitable. But no matter what, there's still a management fee that investors pay for holding some units of JFT Strategies Fund (JFS.UN). Now, Jean-François Tardif is no longer a mega investor star, but at least he's still good looking - I guess.

Its just 2 quick examples, but usually, when I sell a stock, its for good reason. And most of the time, I am always right. Bad bitches are always right. Tardif can now retired for good. Goodbye honey.

You cannot expect every stock, even ones that look so promising to be successful. That's why having a diversified portfolio is so important. I also sold DH and lost 5k in the process. It's going to happen but your successful picks on other stocks will compensate your loss in the long run.
