A new stock for my investment portfolio: Boralex Inc. (BLX)

A lot is going on right now for the TSX. First of all, the TSX closed today session at 15 816.90 points. I am not richer than yesterday because strangely, my non-registered closed lower today. Too bad because I was on road to become the Queen of the TSX.

Bombardier Inc. is desperately trying to push the sale of its CSeries by enrolling in a partnership with Airbus. I never really been impressed with Bombardier. By getting under the arms of Airbus, they had chosen the easiest solution. Under its CEO Alain Bellemare, Bombardier is not doing really well. In Alain Bellemare, I only see a man of an extreme freshness and extraordinary arrogance. The type of man you want to avoid at any cost.

With this so-called good deal, Bombardier is losing its most valuable asset, the CSeries, and now, Airbus will get all the rewards and profit. The worst part is, that jobs may not be secured and might not stay in Canada. And us, Canadian citizens, we have injected millions and millions of our tax money into what is now best know as a garbage company. Anyhow, I am done with Bombardier, its just such a ridiculous company and it doesn't worth the attention of any serious investors.

On the other hand, today was a bright day for Boralex Inc. (BLX). I didn't know that company before, but I knew them without knowing. I am from New Brunswick and I travel back and forth to Montreal-New Brunswick on and on and on. ;) And when I leave my dear New Brunswick town in direction of Quebec province, I can see a huge wind turbines right on top of a mountain. And when I see those turbines, it becomes clear, I am leaving New Brunswick to Montreal...

Anyhow, it happens that Boralex Inc. (BLX) had been around for quite sometimes. Boralex is right in a sector that I wanted to expand my portfolio in: renewable energy. It had been in the past a property of Cascades, another Quebec company, but they sold all their shares to reduce their debt. In result, the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec is now the majority shareholder. BLX pay a dividend, closed to 3%. One thing I really like about BLX is that only 6% of their business is done in the USA. 53% in Canada, and 41% in France. It's not like if BLX really relies on the US to realize its profit, and this is really a good thing. It plays in the favor of the company.
 
There's quite a contract between Bombardier Inc. and Boralex Inc. (BLX). Two Quebec companies, but only one of them worth considering for my investment portfolio.

My non-registered portfolio is now $185 707.85!!!

See, with a lot of pure money love, the TSX is finally learning to obey me. I say I wanted a 16 000 points by the end of the year and its exactly what's going to happen. At 15 802.7 points, the TSX is shining like a diamond. And in result, I am richer than ever before. My non-registered portfolio closed today session at $185 707.85, my TFSA at $61 015.23, and RRSP $37 000.48. My dividend income, excluding RRSP, is now at $8 497.94, or an equivalent of $708.17 per month.

My non-registered portfolio is now at $185 154.18

I came back this week from a few vacation days in New Brunswick and while I was away, I kept watching the TSX, and it just kept going all the way up! Could the TSX closed the year 2017 at a 16 000 points? It could be the dream and if the TSX closed at 16 000 points, I will be richer than ever before. $206 352 is not that much money, but even at 37, I could never imagined having that amount, for me its a big chunk of sexy cash. I unfortunately had to come back to Montreal, but here are a few pictures of my home province, in the wood baby in the most nicest and beautiful place on earth (yeah!!!), and nothing else. Be proud New Brunswickers.













My non-registered portfolio closed this past Friday session at a very good $185 154.18 - its very highest value EVER. Fact that Premium Brands Holdings Corporation (PBH) is now trading at close $103 per share is certainly helping my caused - just so kicking ass the usual way. I got worried regarding CAE Inc. (CAE) for little while, but its now getting back on track. And my TFSA portfolio closed at $60 800.74 and RRSP, $36 928.25. Currently, if it wouldn't be of the capital lost that I experimented in Exchange Income Corporation (EIF) because of the shit of Marc Cohodes, I would be sitting on much more cash right now. 

In case you had missed the story, a couple months ago, an American citizen of the name of Marc Cohodes badly hurt the value of Exchange Income Corporation (EIF) on the TSX. Cohodes bad mouthed EIF title and he short-sell it, which in result affected the value of EIF. Of course, I got very scared, and I sell off that stock. I had been invested in Exchange Income Corporation (EIF) since February 2011 and it really broke my heart to sell EIF, but I was very scared to lose money. I was way too scared. So I sell, at profit, but still, it didn't feel right to me knowing that an American bastard had controlled over my life.

And now, even if its wrong, I am very happy that Marc Cohodes California home sweet home is burning down. May he burns among his chickens so I can never hear of him ever again.

Julie Payette: the Governor General of Canada who shouldn't be

The TSX closed today session at a very great 15 776.30 points. October had begun on the right foot and it look like the TSX is on the road for even more great gains. My non-registered portfolio closed today session at $183 711.62, my TFSA portfolio $60 354.16 and my RRSP portfolio (stocks only), at $36 453.95.

I no longer hold my Veresen Inc. (VSN) shares inside my non-registered portfolio. It look like Veresen Inc. (VSN)-Pembina Pipeline Corporation (PPL) merger is finally happening! Pembina Pipeline Corporation (PPL) is among the first company I invested in when I started my portfolio and PPL is my baby, I am extremely proud to be invested in that company. Back in the days, PPL was a Derek Foster stock. Mergers and acquisitions are usually pretty exciting stuff, but the one happening here in Quebec right now between Jean Coutu and Metro is quite boring and it doesn't worth any attention - and its also the case with who's the newest Governor General of Canada.

The old guy who used to be the Governor General of Canada was an unknown boring old man, but this newest nomination won't get unnoticed. Julie Payette, Quebecker, scientist, ex astronaut, perfectly bilingual is Canada newest Governor General. Her only role is to represent the Queen, whose is far away living in the UK in one of her castle and don't give a damn, and her  daily biggest task is to drink her tea.

I find it a real shame that a woman of the quality of Julie Payette had accepted to waste her time by endorsing a fake monarchy role. Its a thing to be queen or king - because you have no choice to endorse the role - but its another thing to accept to be part of that bullshit. With all her knowledge, Julie Payette could changed the world by being a scientist, conduct some serious research, or even by being a super great university teacher. By being Governor General of Canada, Julie Payette had proved herself as being nothing more than a stupid Quebecker, with no real sense of intelligence what so ever. She can enjoy and do her job on her throne and I hope it will smell bad in the senate!!! Quebeckers like Julie Payette are proving themselves as being poor citizens over and over again. And it seriously making me laugh. During that fun time, far away from my native land, I am getting richer and richer and no, it doesn't smell bad around here!

I know this might be super hard right now for the very love Brian Gallant, but I was released today that the Energy East pipeline project won't ever happen. Its quite a very strange thing when you actually think it right: petrol is dirty made in Alberta, the plan was to build a pipeline that goes from Alberta to all the way down to Saint John New Brunswick.... But why? I know we desperately need jobs in New Brunswick, but it had to be done the right way because we are just too smart. The danger with that pipeline was that it could had pollute our water and our land. Our environment worth more than just a couple hundred jobs.

To be or not to be an ambitious dividend investor

Oh lala readers, check out on this! Looking quite great!

This is making me laugh, but in a good way of course, for many reasons. One reason because I don't analyze stock, and for that good reason, Susan Brunner should have come on the first spot. It's a thing to write pretty things about stock like a Barbie girl, and pick stocks mostly base on feeling and emotions like I do, but it's a completely other thing to be able to understand what it is all about. And there's just one Canadian blogger who does so. And it's not me, it's my Susan Brunner. Maybe one day I will get into it seriously, maybe not.
 
I often write on how good I am and when it come to me and to defend the stocks that I invest in, I am of an extreme freshness and enigmatic arrogance. You won't find better for those qualities just nowhere around the world. If I write so many good words about my own myself, it's because when you are an investor and you are alone and that you have 99.9% of your own money on the stock market, and you do it by yourself and you want to get a bit more than the 2% GIC that the bank proposed, you just have no choice, you need to believe in yourself first because if not, you won't last very long, especially when the stock market play its regular garbage that can drive you all the way down, and when it does, it's like getting a hard punch in your stomach. And if I always write on much much I am good, and that I am the world best investor and blablabli and blablabla, it's for a single good reason: it makes great post to read, and the fact is, you become what you think you are. All I wanted to start on was a $50 000 and now I am exceeding the 200k net worth and I just keep wanted more and there'll be just no end to it, unless I die. Los Angeles tragic events are just an example that it can really happen anytime, anywhere, even if I truly believe that it could take a lot to kill me. I saw the guns that the poor men killed people with, and it's really horrible. With guns like that, you can kill too many people. Many had been killed, but many others could have died.

In moments like those, you can only invest for yourself, but also in behalf of those who can't-do so, for so many reasons, and for those who had passed away.
 
I usually don't check on a stock that is no longer from my portfolio, for several reasons. One reason being, with a portfolio like this one, as you can imagine, I have already a lot to follow. Like a lot. It's not always  When I sell a stock, it's because: I am losing money on it and I am desperately trying to save the money left of the investment; the capital gain return is poor and the dividend income is poor. It's for that last reason that I sold out Open Text Corporation (OTEX) a while ago. Old stocks like OTEX are part of my past, not my future.

All this to say that today, I check on Novo Resources Corp. (NVO) and I quite shocked to see that it gain a lot today. But it's part of what this stock is about, it makes great gains, and the day after, it loses money like crazy. And that's something that is really hard for me to live with. I don't like to hold on to stocks that go up and down drastically.

Sienna Senior Living Inc. (SIA): home care for senior could be the next gold mine

Despite all the sad events happening right now around the world, the TSX decided to closed today session at a very good 15 705 points. In result, my non-registered portfolio closed at $183 695.14, and my TFSA portfolio at $60 256.11.

I was about to post something more elaborate, but I am getting tired and anyway, my post title is stealing the show. You know what you need to do right now: invest in Sienna Senior Living Inc. (SIA) and make me richer like ever before.

Another cool title could had been:

Sienna Senior Living Inc. (SIA): home care for seniors with a sexy twist.

Saying hello to a $206 352.49 net worth!!! $$$

I was quite glad about the results of this last session Friday, so I quickly post a portfolio update! I didn't publish an update since April of this year!!!! It's been quite a rough road, but there's nothing I can handle of course. Back in April, my net worth was of $204 277.66. And on the date of September 30, $206 352.49. It's not of a super great gain, I totally agree, and maybe I shouldn't have posted my update, but at least there's a gain and I am confident that with my newest investments, I will be able to gain thousands and thousands more in terms of capital gain. Also, I like this because it really shows the true nature of investment - on how it can be difficult. If it wouldn't be of Marc Cohodes, my net worth would currently be in the $210 000.

What Marc Cohodes did is a terrible thing. He had deprived myself of my proud, of several thousands of dollars, and hard hurt really badly the value of Exchange Income Corporation (EIF) on the stock market. And currently, EIF is still far away from its 52 week high - $45.28 per share - and a lot of time will pass by before EIF can even get back to its old highest value. Just to know that some old rich gansters like Marc Cohodes are good enough to hurt the interest of Canadians so badly make me sick. It's a matter of both money and influence. Personally, I don't give any credit to Americans. Knowing who they are, how much racist and violence we find in the USA, that country arrived pretty low in my ranking. Canadians are among the brightest mind, we live in the best country of the world. Don't ever think that its everyone living on a middle-class salary like myself that have enough to invest in the stock market like I do. Many individuals in the US, France and even in the UK are having a really hard time to make a living. In the US, many residents are having the hell of a time just to pay for their medical bills. Fact is, when you don't have the chance to be Canadian and to live in Canada, it makes it harder, and even impossible in many cases, to have money in the market or to have any savings at all.

To see individuals like Marc Cohodes ruining my dream of glory glam on EIF, it makes me mad. I find Canadians too calm, gentle like little lambs who are scared of any Americans with money and power. No one is attacking Marc Cohodes for what he did. For a reason or another, back in the summer of 2017, Marc Cohodes decided to massively short-sell Exchange Income Corporation (EIF) and it caused EIF to lose a lot in value. I had been hurt by Marc Cohodes, and all EIF investors did. I know I hold to a lot of stocks already in my portfolio, but eventually, I would like to get back in Exchange Income Corporation (EIF).

Following my first $100 000, it took me 3 years to reach my first $200 000 in net worth. I guess it will take about the same amount of time to get into the 300k mark. I got impressed by the 200k net worth and it was hard to believe I was there, but I eventually got used to it and now it's all about getting into the 300k net worth. Its never enough, and truly, a 206k net worth is not that much, so I have no choice other than kicking Marc Cohodes ass and keep up going. It's a matter of proud, of not letting an American to have the last word on me. It's also a matter of respect to all of the good companies that the TSX is holding. It's a matter of having confidence in the Canadian economy. It's a matter of intelligence.

Last week was really horrible here in Montreal. I got caught in heavy heat and I didn't have a nice time at all. And it's partly why I didn't post about the following: I had sold out all of my shares of Novo Resources Corp. (NVO). It was getting too intense for my taste. I really dislike NVO drastic ups and downs. It was getting hard on my lady's nerves. Holding NVO in my TFSA portfolio was imply to hard. I sell out, and reinvest the money in BCE.

This last move just reminds me of who I am: I will never be a trader, I am an investor. What I am into is Canadian companies who are well-established and pay a dividend. It's really simple, but it's way too easy to get in different directions and just lose it. I am doing my best to get the best of the best Canadian business in my portfolio. I had been investing in stocks for a long time now and no matter what, I always get my hands on something new for my portfolio. I always find great new Canadian companies to invest in. Its really what I am into: to hold on to the best businesses so I can make a max of cash, with a risk, but with a risk that I have the wrong impression to control.

Eric Sprott's Novo Resources Corp. (NVO) is on FIRE

Right now, the TSX is on my side and my stock market closed the session at a very good 15 516.23 points. It's almost like we are getting back to the good old days, when the TSX was just pure money love and all the way high. But now, things are very different, especially because of the conflict between the US and North Korea. Not too long ago, Russia had operated a major military exercise inside its territory which involved, if I understood correctly, about 200 000 men. The exercise was so intense that it even killed civilians who were watching the exercises as spectators... But why Russia was conducting such intense military drill? Now that time passed by, it had become more clear what the exercise was for. And it's the biggest threat to all of us right now, including money living on the stock market. It's quite a sad thing.

At least for now, my portfolio is the shiniest jewel on Earth and you won't find any better My non-registered portfolio closed today session at a very pow-wow $181 441.21! I am just so very close of the $190 000, unbelievable. My TFSA portfolio closed today session at $59 691.73. Before being an Eric Sprott stock, Novo Resources Corp. (NVO) was MY very own stock, as I didn't know that he had invested massively in NVO. Oh noooooo! But hey babe, having Eric Sprott in the portrait doesn't seem to really matter after all, because today was finally it, I am now officially in the profit zone when it comes to Novo Resources Corp. (NVO), I am now at +$72. It's hardly the beginning. I think NVO can go higher so I am standing strong like a sexy warrior and I am just waiting for my time. I must admit, I got very scared to learn that Eric Sprott was invested in my beloved NVO stock. Like no way, life is so unfair!!! DRAMA. But wait. 

When I first bought NVO, it was just something I wanted really badly in my portfolio because I was under the strong impression that something extraordinary was going on for that stock. And for that one, my instincts obey my need for money. I still think that NVO is up for great things. I was just really frightening at first, but I am now ignoring Eric Sprott. Me and Novo Resources Corp. (NVO), we are in the game for good. So let's go NVO, show me what you got! With today gains, everything is possible. If I can possibly get out of my lost on SWY with the help of NVO, it will be all good.

Another interesting stock Kirkland Lake Gold (KL). I think Eric Sprott is also involeved in this one, but KL is interesting because it has invest in NVO and little bonus to help out, KL pay a tiny dividend distribution.

Novo Resources Corp. (NVO): a high flyer stock in my TFSA portfolio

The weather is heavily hot in Montreal right now and I really dislike it. I don't have an air conditioner, and the hot weather is just there Its not an enjoyable weather for me. It makes it hard to do anything at all, to clean, to cook... I don't like to have that hot weather in September, it's awful. I like autumn and its fresh air. But I am getting nothing of that right now. Even back home in New Brunswick, the weather is just as hot and disgusting. The only place I can go without getting bored and where's fresh air is the gym and I can happily destroy my workout clothes by getting all sweat.

At least, the TSX closed Friday session close to the old 15 500 point value that I like so much. And in return, my non-registered portfolio closed at $180 515.36, my TFSA portfolio at $59 278.55. I was quite happy to see Novo Resources Corp. (NVO) going up. I just hope it will continue and if I can sell quickly at profit, I will do so. I don't like holding onto a stock in which Eric Sprott is involved in. If NVO title is super volatile, its the fault of Eric Sprott. Whenever Sprott but is venin in a stock, it always gets as bad as this. Stocks Eric Sprott invest in always turn into super volatile stock that goes up-down-up-down... Stockopedia names those kinds of stocks as being high flyer and it's exactly what NVO is: a stock to stay away from.

The TSX is like a flower on the sun: say hello to a 15 389.6 points!

I don't regret at all my sell off of Stornoway Diamond (SWY) yesterday. My non-registered portfolio closed today session at $181 133.30, and my TFSA portfolio at $59 260.59. Beautiful. So let's go baby. I am slowly getting over my sell off of my dear Exchange Income Corporation (EIF) inside my TFSA. I won't let the damn Marc Cohodes to have the last word on me. Like NEVER. And will never go over it. Americans are so hypocrite and jerks. And Marc Cohodes is just so the perfect example of pervert dirty millionaire junkie. In my case, its over, whatever Americans do or say is to be put directly in the trash can, but maybe at the exception of Ivanka Trump clothes line because her design fit me well. I don't know if she designs all of her clothes herself, but Ivanka Trump has an amazing style and its quite strange, knowing who's her father!!!

Right now, Donald Trump is driving me crazy nut because all that North Korea saga is not good for the stock market. However, we are very lucky here in Canada because my TSX love closed today session at a fantastic 15 389.6 points. Trump being so harsh over North Korea come at a price. From now on, the issue is really serious. A little way back, I had a talked with my old folks, asking them not come to Montreal ever in case a nuclear disaster would happen - or whatever else, like if they couldn't reached me following a X event. It was important for me to have things straight up because in case of a bad event, things could get really chaotic in Montreal. Quebec province being so poorly managed, many could died before the government do anything at all. And I wouldn't like to see my mom or my dad suffering while being here. New Brunswick is a much safer province, with good leadership, which is not the case in Quebec. Basically, in case of tragedy, the word had been put clear: they stay safe in New Brunswick, and I go there when I can, and they don't ever come to Montreal to get me. Noooo.

Donald Trump is actually putting the Canadians in a difficult situation, because we are not arm to destroy arsenal that could come from North Korea. And in case of a war, its been publicly say that the US won't defend Canada. When Donald Trump say: America come first, that's exactly what he mean. And sadly, we are at a point where Donald Trump is a clear menace to our safety. Trump is a selfish man and its getting harder and harder to just see him going like that. Because of him, my portfolio is at risk.

Marc Cohodes and Donald Trump: two rich men who are rough dumb idiots.

The weather is anomaly warm in Montreal for this time of year and I enjoy the sun, but heat can be too intense for my taste. I suffer from asthma and I don't enjoy too hot weather.

End of this enjoyable post full of love.

Welcome in my portfolio Sienna Senior Living Inc. (SIA) and Northland Power Inc. (NPI)!

Good day for the TSX as the sexy is popping up to the 15 292.97 points. With a lot of love and care, this baby can go far! Go go go!!!

Today, I took the very easy decision to sell off all of the little Stornoway Diamond (SWY) stocks that I was holding inside my non-registered and TFSA portfolio. Its sad, but SWY is not going no where. Stornoway Diamond was just not a good fit for me and was a very bad investment choice. I mostly make good investment move and sometimes, even really good. And when it happen, I quite to prefer to sell off and reinvest. I got to have lost a couple hundreds, but nothing real tragic. I have many years ahead to recover. And if you want to see things on the bright side, well its now it, I am now at an equivalent of $700 per month in dividend income. I just wanted to go back in there so badly. And here am I again.

Its almost like if $700 would be the magic number, because it is and my rent is $665, my cell phone is $41... And after touching that $700, I will only be missing $548.33 to cover my minimum budget expenses, but of course, I do spend more than that per month. And sometimes even spend all the money I earn in the month or almost... Bad bad girl, but at least I am giving a warm welcome to Sienna Senior Living Inc. (SIA) and Northland Power Inc. (NPI). I knew about NPI since a little while, so I was happy to finally add this stock to my portfolio.

Yesterday, while searching for new stocks to invest in on Stockopedia, I was checking for stocks among the highest StockRank, and among those highest rank, I was searching for Conservative stock only. Conservative doesn't mean that does investment doesn't come without any risk, but since its conservative, its less tempt to be ultra volatile stocks. Right now, I need stock I can rely on and I want to keep things easy. Since I started using it, Stockopedia had been quite helpful in my investment journey and I highly recommend it. Right now, you should click on here.

Right now, my non-registered portfolio is at cute 181k value. Just saying, this is the really first time that my non-registered is hitting on the $181 000 mark.

In the search of new stocks to invest in with Stockopedia

Its a great feeling to finally see my TSX hot darling hitting on over the 15 200 points mark. In many ways, the TSX is a very wild sexy old bitch that only need a lot of love and care. I was doing amazingly well when the TSX was on the 15 500 points. But since it went lower by over 300 points, things haven't been easy. My non-registered portfolio closed at $178 695.95, my TFSA portfolio at $58 983.97. My dividend income, excluding RRSP, is currently set at an equivalent of $685.69 per month. I am always trying to find new gems for my portfolio, and its not exactly easy but that search just keep going on and on and on. Its an obsession and it probably will end when I will be too old to place any trade at all.

I don't want to invest in any more REIT stocks. No more bank stocks or anything financial please. I already hold so many stocks in my portfolio. Why should I hold on to any more? I am always in the search of new stocks to invest in. Because you never know which stock could be my next everything. And its quite easier to me to find new stock to invest in rather than searching for a new apartment in Montreal. And if I stop my portfolio duty now, who knows what I could be missing? What would happen if I wouldn't had invested in Savaria Corporation (SIS), Canadian National Railway Co (CNR), Lassonde Inc. (LAS.A), and all of my other super wonderful stocks? I wouldn't be as shinier as now.

When my reading and personal search lead me to just no where to go, I really like to turn over to Stockopedia. I pick many of my greatest stocks using Stockopedia: Morguard North American Residential Real Estate Investment Trust (MRG.UN), Park Lawn Corporation (PLC) and Richards Packaging Income Fund (RPI.UN), just to name those I remember right now.

What I am looking for? Something related to seniors care, health care, water, clean energy. And I came with:
 Sienna Senior Living Inc. (SIA)
 Northland Power Inc. (NPI)

I would like a stock related to water, but I can't find any, not for now.

Welcome in my non-registered portfolio Dollarama Inc. (DOL)!

I really worked hard this evening, but it was all for nothing. I was trying to publish an update of my portfolio, but I quickly realize that I was actually 2k under the 200k net worth... So I decided, exclusively for vanity reasons, I decided not to publish that update. I am a lady, my stocks have to shine or if not, there's just no update. Its no real big surprise that I am under the 200k net worth mark, especially knowing that the TSX is under the usual 15 500 points where it should be standing so the Queen that I am can finally make her comeback. Its certainly not easy, but there's always a mix of good news just to make things a bit smoother and after all, the stock market has to reward at some points its favorite dividend lady.

In my portfolio, Savaria Corporation (SIS) had been a super gem. SIS had been at home in my portfolio and I had been rewarded of thousands in capital gain and hundreds in dividend income. Today was a spectacular day for Savaria Corporation (SIS) as the company announced that it was switching from a trimester to monthly dividend distribution. Also, SIS dividend is increasing of 10 cents per share, which is a lot, despite the fact that its only 10 cents per share... Because a dividend lady just want it all. And with all of those great news, SIS title gain 11.23%! That's quite nice and I certainly deserved a lot more. 

My dividend income is now at an equivalent of $683.77 per month, which is great - I am slowly getting closer to the famous $700 mark.

I made a secret investment. A few days ago, I invested a small amount in Dollarama Inc. (DOL). I was hoping to catch the gain train... but I got stuck at $139 with no possibility to sell quickly for profit... because currently, DOL is trading at $135 per share.... Too bad. Anyhow, DOL is a good investment to hold on to and pay a tiny, but still, a dividend.

I was surprised to learn today that shareholders of Home Capital Group Inc. (HCG) had massively voted against a new investment of Warren Buffet in the company. But I certainly understand why it was rejected. HCG is currently trading at $14.33 per share and Buffet wanted to place another massive investment, but at a ridiculous $10.30 per share. Business men are business men, but Canada is not to be sell to disgusting Americans who think they are the master of the universe and play on us and exclude us from our fundamental right: to own Canadian businesses and make money out of the TSX. From Marc Cohodes to Warren Buffet, Americans need to be pushed over and ignore. Its not because a man has a lot of money that its necessarily a good man or a good investor. 

Marc Cohodes is the perfect portrait of the American millionaire idiot, attacking a lady of the shadow and destroying the value of my very belove Exchange Income Corporation (EIF). If it wouldn't had been of the piece of shit, my TFSA value would had been of 60k right now. I just really hope that Marc Cohodes suffered form the hurricanes because my hate is as big and powerful as those Harvey and Irma hurricanes.

Small investors don't have much power, but we can pray for the hell of our enemies.

Geneviève O'Gleman banana muffins are stealing the show over dividend

Its quite sad to see the effects of hurricane on the US, Cuba, St-Martin and other countries located in the south. I never been to Florida, but cities like Naples, Key West and Miami seem to be very pretty, like real paradise on Earth. I was particularly quite sad to see the beautiful Havana city being crushed over the flood. At least I had the chance to visit Havana two years ago. Strangely, the TSX is not reacting quite negatively, no hard crash so far. 

On a happier note, I made this evening my ever first bunch of banana muffins following a Geneviève O'Gleman recipe. In Quebec province, Geneviève O'Gleman and Alexandra Diaz are the top of the easy made, easy eat glamorous cuisine. The muffins I made are tasting pretty good despite the fact that my recipe contains less sugar. Feeling very brave, I reduced the amount of sugar and add about the double in term of All Bran cereal. I also made my first peach jam ever by following the jam recipe in the latest Cuisine futée magazine. I just add some to the muffin and got full quite quickly without eating all of one. It was my 37th birthday resolution to cook more and so I began by buying a Ricardo and a Cuisine futée magazine. I really enjoy Cuisine futée because its really focus on easy, cheap, good little recipe that really anyone can do. Its just that I never really try to put more efforts on what I cook. I also enjoy the television show at Tele Quebec. On the other hand, Ricardo is a bit more sophisticated. He's so nice and gentle that everything he cooks seem to be easy to replicate. However, spending 30 minutes in the kitchen for cooking a meal is a lot for me. But fact is, I was beginning to eat a lot of the same thing, and more than one time, peanut butter sandwiches, and I got food bored. But now is all going to change.

Food is costing so much, if I can cut on some expenses, I will be really happy. Have you check on the cost of strawberry jam lately? I saw a little bottle going as high as $7.99. You can get some good strawberry jam at $3.99 when its in special. But why not made your own? If you pick a cheap fruit, like peaches, and do your own jam, over a year, you'll save a lot of money.

And another hand, I am trying to get control on food waste. I am only buying what I need to do my Cuisine futée recipes.

Bon appétit.

Its a disaster, Eric Sprott had invested massively in my newly precious Novo Resources Corp (NVO)!

Too bad, it was too good to be true, the TSX was all way up, and now we had loss the good points we were on... But its like that these days. There's no real direction, despite the fact that Canadian economy is doing really great. Its the international scene that is messing it all up and its quite frustrating. Because of my hopes and dreams stand in those sexy stocks of mine. Lately, Novo Resources Corp (NVO) had cached my attention and I jump in the ride at $5.55 per share. You understand I was quite released today to find out that Novo Resources Corp (NVO) was gaining 14.6% in one single day. 

I usually checked the stock I invest in on Stockopedia, but I didn't that time because it was strictly an impulsive buy, just like it was a new purse that I was purchasing. StockRank of NVO on Stockopedia is actually higher than expected, close to 80. I also checked on NVO over my broker account. And og my God, I found out that not Marc Cohodes had invested in Novo Resources Corp (NVO), but another famous investor that I don't like very much: ERIC SPROTT. Oh noooooooo! Not Eric Sprott!! What he's doing involved in my newest investment? Isn't the old man supposed to be retired? Whenever Eric Sprott is involved in a stock, it always turn ugly. Eric Sprott must be avoid at any cost. I would had avoid investing in NVO if only I would knew that Eric Sprott was turning around Novo Resources Corp (NVO). Sprott unfortunately invest in NVO a couple of times during the past months. Its really to see one of my latest proud in the hands of that demon. You might thing that I exaggerate, but I am really not. I am like dying!! I am want to scream. Is that ok?

One good thing about Eric Sprott is that he's very old and one day we longer see his name on broker sheets. And you won't ever see mine either because I only make very cute, innocent and pure little cuty investments. And since I place my so smart investment move inside my TFSA, I just want NVO to hit on higher so I can sell and made a bit of money fro myself, let say for a new purse, new shoes and got my nails and hair done..... I am not a natural beauty and I am extremely high maintenance. That being said, I am just frustrated now because my dream of glory on the back of Novo Resources Corp (NVO) is at risk because of an old man at the name of Eric Sprott.

Let say that I just don't have it easy.

Toromont Industries Ltd (TIH) is on the road for gold

My non-registered portfolio closed this past session at $175 778.35, which is pretty good. I can feel it, the 180k non-registered portfolio is now not too far away. And when it will finally hit the 180k, I will published a portfolio update, which I didn't do in a really long time, actually since April 24 of this year. Ever since, the stock market hasn't been a heaven place. Its going up and down. And Marc Cohodes came out of no where, the poor guy think the Canadian stock market belong to him. The loser shoot down on my precious Exchange Income Corporation (EIF). But it doesn't really matter. I am actually happy that he did that move because now, the little rat face is on my radar and I only wish him all the bad luck of the world because the TSX is a Canadian thing, its to create richness to Canadians, not for American losers. Its time for Canadians to wake up. Americans are not our friends, in any ways. And when I read some comments of reader saying that they will donate to support the US population who had been touched by Harvey, all I can say is manage your own business. Did any Americans donate money to help those who had suffered of the Spring flood this year? Did Americans donate any money to help our First Nations? Do Americans are dealing fairly with us and came with a fair trade for our wood? I mean, if you donate any money to the Americans, you are donating money to the enemy.

There will always be some bad idiot Americans around the corner just to remind the brave Canadians how brilliant and smart we are. And Marc Cohodes is totally among one of those examples. But don't you ever worry because I am right here and I have business in hands. And I will totally love to just hit on Cohodes to quickly make him feel all the pain I felt when my precious Exchange Income Corporation went down on me. I will never forgive. And from now on, my new duty is to make him do his job in his pants. I now have an enemy for life. If a war would happen between Canada and US, I would be among the first ones to sign up. After 37 years of age, there's nothing more I would like to do than to battle for a good cause, even if it has to end my life. This kind of existence has just no full meaning anyway. I mean, you work hard, clean your place, your clothes, work out, invest the hard money, blog and for which reason again? Its a good thing that I am not Muslim.

While bravely facing idiots of that nature, there's a couple tips I can come with to help everyone, especially my special readers. Not readers, super fan of the Dividend Girl. Because when your money is being invest in stocks, even if its over the TSX super beauty, you'll be alone dealing with difficulties. I stop trying to understand the stock market a really long time ago. Harvey had hit on the US, but the TSX went up. Like what??? Anyhow, its a good thing. I really wish we could be a force of ourselves. We need to be independents and seek for other business partners. Like the UK, China, Russia.. The world is large, can we just throw far far away the US even if they are our next door neighbors? Can we please ignore Americans for once? They are hitting hard on North Korea, but they couldn't even take care of their own population and properly evacuated Houston and its area before the storm named Harvey hit on and destroy everything. I mean I clearly saw at the news the eye of the tornado hours before it hit Houston. And nobody called for evacuation. The US is not a world class leader. Its just very poor leadership. And we should turned our back on them. Russia shouldn't care about the US. Once the world will wake up, we'll just be doing much better. But I don't feel that a revolution is in the air. Its all about the US here, the US there. Like can we just stop paying attention? So annoying.

A little while back, I was investing in Toromont Industries Ltd (TIH). It took quite sometime for TIH to grow inside my portfolio but now it is. This just remind me of Richards Packaging Income Fund (RPI.UN). I picked that stock on Stockopedia. But that one also took some time to gain value inside my portfolio. Sometimes, patience is key. But its not an easy thing to have to deal with some investors of the nature of Marc Cohodes who only destroy everything they have on sight. However, no one single man can destroy the economy of a country. I always said that we have the best stock market of the world and we really have. Our stock market is much more stable than the US. I cannot compare to other countries, but its terribly hard to find US stocks with a high perfect climb chart. Its really hard. But we have many of them on the Canadian side.

I think its important to keep investing even during difficult time because you never know: maybe your next investment will be your next precious money proud. I cannot say that the more I invest, the better I am because I had made some wrong moves and I will probably continue to have a mix of good and bad ones. But the most important thing ever is to just keep going. Even if its impossible to legally eradicate some bad players like Marc Cohodes. 

This being said, I believe that TIH alone will eradicate all of my bad investment moves and that will make be a really rich girl. Lucky girl, lucky stocks. I love my babies.

I am now a 37 years old investor

How does that feel? Not so bad. Its now pass and done, I had celebrated this past Sunday my 37th birthday. And my ultimate teenage crush also celebrated its birthday on the very same day, Ma$e baby.
 
It’s quite sad to see what's going on in Texas right now, but I cannot help thinking why all those people haven't been told to evacuate. I was watching TV and we could clearly see the eye of the tornado Harvey and it was monstrous. No one is talking about it, but some people had slept at their duties. And now more than ever, the US will need Canadian wood and certainly more than just wood. Its a sad twist in the NAFTA negotiations, but this is playing in our favor. If Trump refused to be open on negotiation, I would like our leaders to turn our back and not to offer any help to those super fresh arrogant Americans. No matter what, its all about money, and it will always be about money. And I think that no US officials really wanted to evacuate Houston and areas because it would had cost them too much money. They preferred to see their own people suffer. And taking action quickly would had required too much of a good leadership, which Trump obviously don't have.

We all have something to learn from this. Its important to have cash put away in case some tragedy happen. In difficult times like those, people with money in the bank will have it easier than those who have close to nothing at all. Clothes, furniture, jewelry... All the material can go quickly in case of catastrophe, but the money you have in the bank remain there no matter what. It doesn't worth it to spend a fortune on furniture or fancy clothes. The mistake would be to think that a disaster cannot happen here in Montreal, Toronto, Halifax... but it certainly can. And its another reason that play in my favor: because I don't believe in home ownership, especially in urban area. Why spend thousands on a home that you may lose, for whatever reasons? Because anything can happen. And by the way our government had been dealing with Haitians refugees, don’t ever think that Canada could deal with a catastrophic situation much better, actually not under Justin Trudeau government. Trudeau is not half what is father used to be, it’s not because his father was a great man that he is a great leader. He quite sucks. All those immigrated are attracted by Trudeau image. But leadership need to be much more than only base on image. Unfortunately, the mass is not smart enough.

Many people in the US won't have direct access to clean water, but I don't understand why Canadians should worry about US citizens when people of the First Nation are living in extremely poor conditions, with no access to clean water and in very poor housing conditions. We should worry more about our own people before giving any help to the US or to any Haitians coming to Canada simply to get their dirty hands on our jobs and take advantage of Canadians in all possible ways while entering illegally in our country. After all, this is happening because of Donald Trump. I think we have enough on our plate.

During that time, my non-registered portfolio closed today session at $173 583.88. The TSX is a rough place to be right now, but I am confident about the future because in my view, the overall scene is quite optimistic, because of of evolution on our market. Latest news, a stock that I had been holding for some time, Toromont Industries Ltd (TIH) had acquired a Quebec company, and ever since, TIH had been booming. Canadian Imperial Bank Of Commerce (CM) had increased its quarterly dividend of 3 cents. Nothing much, but its an increased. Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS) is following CM by increasing its dividend by... 3 cents per quarter. This is how to benefit from the system: to partly invest in big Canadian banks and just watched them happily increasing their dividend distribution year after year after year.... There's just no end to this. Mortgage is for poor idiot people who got fool by the system. I don't get fool by the system, I suck at it and take get all it can give.

Jamieson Wellness Inc. (JWEL) announced a second quarter dividend!

To see my beautiful TSX going under the mark of the 15 000 points is sooooo terrible! I used to be right there, on top of my game. But now, it seem like everything is playing against me. Anyhow, sexy bitchy is not about to let it go just because the alienated Americans are messing up with the world economy. I actually think that Donald Trump is a benediction to our modern world. Its time to rely on ourselves and seek economic agreements with other countries. There must be a way that we can avoid dealing with the USA. And there is a way. Why does the world need to turn around the USA? Americans are so selfish. Its time we turn our back on them. I hope that our government play really dirty on the NAFTA. Canada should really go out of the circle and seek in a hurry other opportunities. I am quite certain that Mexico would just LOVE to avoid dealing with the US. Why not just do so, and only deal with good Canadians who won't ever play game on the back of poor Spanish people, or on the back of anybody at all.

This is actually Donald Trump gift to the world: we need to seek richness by our own. The USA is not a good country to deal with. We, the people living outside the USA - we are alone now and our destiny is in our own hands. Who care about the Americans anyway? The world need to reject them as hard as possible. People of the Earth are the boss, not Americans.

In the meantime, many people are currently working very hard to protect Mexican and Canadian interests. And its kind of sad. At a time when there's so much that need to be done to save our climate and so many other things, well, we cannot concentrate on things that really matter because of those poor Americans.

Its been a crazy summer. I had spent a lot of money. The money was well spend of course, but I am looking forward to squeeze in my expenses like never before so watch out because its going to be quite something. More than just Marc Cohodes, its now the whole TSX that is shitting on me and thank you so much for doing that because I am on my way to become a very savy princess. Thank you all.

Should you never give up trying to save money and to invest because sooner or later, rewards will come. I had lived very dark days in the past and those lived today are just other ordinary dark days. But don't you ever forget who I am, and especially, don't you ever gave up or I am going to go straight where you are and I would to do you what I would only love to do to Marc Cohodes. That's being to kick up your ass and make you move.

This being said, I have a good news: I think I had lost some belly fat - because I eat less when the stock market go crazy down. And secondly, one of my newest proud, Jamieson Wellness Inc. (JWEL) announced some dividend distribution! I wasn't sure if this one was going to pay me a dividend, but it is. JWEL stands strongly in value and its exactly what I need: a strong stock with some great dividend.

Following this, mirror, oh mirror, tell me who's the best investor of the world, please tell me? OH I CAN HEAR HER SAYING: YOU MY DEAR.

Of course, only me. Me and me. And please enjoy JWEL dividend and pray for my soul who will turn 37 on August 27. I know, only 5 DAYS LEFT!!!!

CRAZY.

Happy Birthday Acadian Investors! And welcome in my TFSA portfolio Novo Resources Corp (NVO)!!!

Happy Acadian Day! On this special day, my non-registered closed the session at $175 625.02. This is feeling great. Premium Brands Holdings Corporation (PBH) closed today session at $99.63 per stock - which its is very highest value EVER. Is it a conicidence that its happening on a August 15th? Not at all! I am probably the most enthusiast, PBH publicist of all Canadian and Acadian investors and its not without a reason. I made close to +500% on that single investment. Its why its my very precious investment.

Savaria Corporation (SIS) had been catching up with the recent loses and decided to bounce back at $13.70 and make me happy, because today is my Acadian special day. Following the announcement of a new acquisition oversea, WSP Global Inc. (WSP) is catching up. Even Just Energy is going up!!! It look to me that of of those stocks of mine finally decided to support me and is pushing it forward so I can be super rich and super fresh on August 27.

Today, I had invested in Novo Resources Corp (NVO) inside my TFSA. I got in at $5.42 per share. I notice that I had closed to $500 in my TFSA cash available to invest and I decided to move on something. That money came from dividend distribution that I touched inside my TFSA.  It was hard not to notice NVO today. I barely read about the deal, but something special is going on for Novo Resources Corp (NVO) and I hope to make some good money on this investment. Never stop trying. You just never know which stock is going to sky rocket.

JWEL is also going pretty well.

Chances are that I might be hitting for something big right on time for my birthday. I knew that my fabulous TSX wasn't going to let me down.

Fact in, when you are Acadian, its not blood you have in your veins, its success. I am not standing on the misery of my ancestors for nothing at all. Marc Cohodes can shit on me on Twitter and try to get his finger on karma, I am invincible.

And during that time, Bill Clinton, a sexual predator, is getting a warm welcome from Quebeckers. Only those people can be idots enough to welcome that cheater and his poor wife.

Tic tac, tic tac, tic tac...

ONLY 13 DAYS BEFORE MY BIRTHDAY! And after that big special day, in only 3 years from now, I will be turning 40 years old!!! NOoooooooo! **DRAMA** 

Nothing exceptional about aging, but the trick is not to see the result of terrifying aging on me. I was told more than more time that I don't like my age and I always welcome the compliment with infinite joy. Like: long hours spent at the gym and spending a small fortune on beauty cream kind of worth it after all. That's why I cannot buy a condo. Now you know my secret.

My non-registered portfolio closed today at a good $174 135.99. PBH got back to its old rich days. I am getting fabulously sexy rich on Premium Brands Holdings Corporation (PBH). And each time I put my eyes on PBH value on the TSX, I think of Jean-François Tardif. While PBH is popping up the cash, his JFT Strategies Fund (JFS.UN) is down of 1.46%. I think of Tardif each times I check on PBH because a long time ago, PBH had been a stock recommendation coming from him. The poor sweet handsome should had think of investing in PBH for his fund.

During that time, SIS is playing game on me and decided to go all the way down. Savaria Corporation (SIS) lost more than 6% today, for just no obvious reason. Is it the fault of Marc Cohodes? Who care? Us Canadians, we need to stop valuing the opinion of Americans because we are the best of the world. Americans are scaring everyone, including the poor Haitians, when they are killing each others. Americans like Marc Cohodes need to be diminished and completely ignored. Its a funny thing to say when the NAFTA is about to be rebuild, but we should be very hard on Americans and treat them like they deserved. Canadians are always so weak in front of Americans. But that has to change. Marc Cohodes is far from being not an honorable investor and can only kiss my valuable assets. The USA is not a valuable country.

I might be taking some ages, but there's some nice stuff about me that will never change. On the stock market, you need to be strong. SIS is falling for no reason, I am holding on to it for now and I won't let go until blood comes out from all of my orifices. Very all of them. And while waiting, my portfolio will be up to $180 000. See you baby. $$$ and a lot of $$$.

Enjoy a free visit of my Montreal apartment

The TSX lost more than 100 points today, major loses. I didn't even take a look at my portfolio online because I truly know what is there for me: desolation and loses. The best is to avoid looking. Its not anytime soon that I will be posing an update of my investment portfolio. As you might know by now, I only publish updates to satisfy my ego. I only publish complete portfolio updates when I am at my very best and when I am on top everything, like if I would be the Queen of the world.

I don't even want to understand what it might be for financial professionals who are directly involved in the stock market. Dealing with this kind of stress day after day. It might be an of in deep ugly feeling of emptiness. Each moment definitively has it song.



I adore this Garbage song Empty, its a real killer and Shirley voice is just so great. The video is quite awesome too. Its just lately that I understand why I had colored my hair in red for so many years: its because I wanted to get Shirley Manson good look!!! 

I am feeling sorry for myself and my readers because my 37th birthday is coming so soon and instead of being on top of my game, I need to deal with a catastrophic trading conditions. And its not about to end soon. I know its crazy and not convenient at all, but I was very satisfy to read Donald Trump comments about North Korea, saying that he was warning fire and fury if Pyongyang continued to threatened his country. Its about time that a world leader put the North Korean leader at his place. In many regards, I agree with Donald Trump. There's just a few problems with him: he tweets too much, sometimes talk too much and he's too aggressive sometimes, with just so any sense of delicateness at all. And in some points, me and Donald Trump are kind of the same: both monsters. But am a poor version of Donald Trump and maybe I would had done better in life if I would had his gut and extreme arrogance. One of my greatest quality is that I exactly know who and how I am.

Those who dislike Donald Trump just don't see his good sides. Ivanka Trump being around bring on something of positive, but she needs to be more present. She has all the grace and good taste that her father doesn't have. No one is perfect.

When it hurt to be on the stock market, its a really good thing to explore other adventure. Night after night, your dream of seeing me. I can't make that happen now. But I can certainly make you visit my little studio that I recently put some love in. I have a tiny little one and half apartment, but perfectly located somewhere in Montreal. I am now paying $665 per month for that apartment. I had post pictures of the same apartment that I still have today 5 years ago. You can check the old pictures of it right here.

I recently bought new furnitures at Structube. I really recommend this furniture store. It is well located in Montreal, it seem to be a Quebec company and delivery service was totally fine, furnitures came in big boxes and in good conditions. I bought a kitchen chair, a living room chair and a night table there. 

Let's begin with the cool night table. I just received today this lamp and jewelry plate that I bough on Amazon:



I really like this Crystal Silver Table Lamp on my night table. The Umbra Prisma Jewelry Tray also look pretty cool. Don't you think so?

This is what my living space look like:





The faux fur throw and faux fur pillow on the chair comes from Structube. Its their "tiger" wow design...


The frame bed and table got change by the owner. This wardrobe furniture is also from the owner. I bought those cute large sweater-knit baskets at Simons to put on top and store some stuff. It look pretty clean.



This Velvet arabesque rug come from Simons too.


I have some free space in front of my bed,its where I currently put the laundry bed, but I am looking forward to do something with the space.


This is my kitchen, which is decent space - I saw too many small apartments with no decent place to cook and with no storage space! I like the cabinets space.



I like this kitchen rug, really easy to clean. I bought it at Winner. I put a rug at that direct spot because the floor is broken there.



We don't see it well on the oven, but there's a spoon rest piece of this kit.


Next to my oven is my shoe rack, which I find useful.



I like this wood alike rug. I bough it at Winner too.


And here's my bathroom. I really like my shower curtain. Its a Rococo shower curtain that I bought at Simons. I bough the basket at Stokes. The bath rug is from Simons.



A cute little basket is always welcome in small spaces, including in a small bathroom. I have too many hair products. I bought it at Simons too.


This is something new that been installed recently:


And finally, I got this little Parisienne theme garbage can at Stokes.



Et voilà, that complete the visit of my apartment. From now on, you know where I blog, I sleep and watch TV. I had been living in there for about 10 years. I recently made all those changes and ask my landlords to change some stuff. It was all greatly needed.

3 Reasons Investing Abroad in Dividend Yielding Stocks is Good for Your Portfolio

Diversification is one of the cardinal rules of investing that you can't afford to flout if you want to protect your investment portfolio from unpleasant surprises. Telling you not to put all your eggs in one basket already sounds cliché and most smart investors will have a mix of conservative and speculative investments in their portfolios. 

Many investors diversify their portfolios across stocks, mutual funds, precious metals, bonds, and forex. Others investors diversify across multiple areas of the economy and some investors diversify across multiple sectors of the same industry. For a dividend investor, diversifying your portfolio across national borders is one of the smartest ways to enhance your dividend profile. This piece examines 3 reasons why investing abroad in dividend yielding stocks is a smart diversification move.

Access to different market cycles

The economic reality is that different economies operate on different market cycles. A global recession or bull run will have varying effects along a spectrum on different economies. Even in the best/worst economic times, some countries will get in/out faster than the others. Investing in dividend yielding stocks abroad provides you with an opportunity to access massive dividend payouts especially in emerging economies where a rising middle class often trigger bullish sentiments for stocks prices, earnings and dividends. 

If you focus only on investing in companies in your home economy, you'll most likely be recording massive opportunity cost in the international markets.

Diversification away from the U.S. dollar

The U.S. dollar is de facto global reserve currency but the greenback is gradually losing its position as other economies continue to challenge the economic dominance of the U.S. In addition, some of the unconventional economic policies (and statements) of President Trump are Dollar-negative and the greenback is experiencing an unprecedented level of volatility, Investing in dividend stocks abroad provides an window for receiving your dividends  payouts in other currencies such as the Euro, Pounds, Yen, CAD, and Yuan among others. 

Of course, one could make a counter argument that investing abroad to diversify away from the USD might not make much difference because  of FX fees relating to transferring your money abroad and collecting your dividends from a foreign currency back to the USD. However, the good news is that international money transfers are no longer in the exclusive domains of banks. Now, you can find tons of international payments options to send and collect money outside the country at fair, reasonable, and competitive prices.

Access to international credit

Apart from the fact that investing in dividend stocks abroad helps you to book gains from bigger markets and it protects your portfolio against economic shocks, international investing can also be a great tool for extending your creditworthiness beyond national boundaries. You can easily access a broader credit base in the countries where you have significant investments. 

Investors who only have portfolios locally are often at a loss when credit is unavailable or expensive in their local markets – the worst part is that lenders reserve the right to approve/deny credit applications. However, you can easily send it a credit application to a lender in another country and use the investment portfolio as the basis of an existing relationship for the credit facility.
