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.

Me and Ivanka Trump

I came home late this evening because I was busy shopping for an upcoming wedding. I already know which dress my mom will be wearing. Its a simple, but pretty dress. I didn't want to override her outfit by wearing something more dressier. I already have  dress that could do the thing in my wardrobe. But I decided to stop by La Baie.

In Montreal, La Baie store is located right downtown and its certainly the best of the best shopping spot. I tried many dresses of course. I fall in love with Tadashi Shoji dresses. Unfortunately, its a bit too much, as explain, I cannot be prettier than my mom. I tried this dress on. It was really pretty, it was the perfect dress. However, quite expensive. And I couldn't resist, I also try this one, but in a shorter version - it was real pretty too. Tadashi Shoji is an amazing designer. Too bad my mom isn't wearing something more classy. It was fun to try on some princess dresses.

I kept shopping and I stopped by some Ivanka Trump dresses. I don't know if you remember, but I had bought an Ivanka Trump winter coat a little while ago. Fact is, I like Ivanka Trump designs. She has really nice stuff. I decided to buy this Ivanka Trump dress. Its looking real pretty on me. Want to see?

There you go readers, the first pic ever of the Dividend Girl on this blog:

Looking great or what??!!! Oh check, you can see some of my blond hair!!! Wowwwww LOL

The lady at La Baie told me that it wasn't a convenient dress for a wedding because of the zipper it has on the front, but I will be the bad ass wearing a dress with a zipper at a wedding. I now own that Ivanka Trump dress. There's a nice stretch into it to keep the little but existing beer belly all in and not out. I am going to bring that dress and the other one I had in mind for the wedding with me when time come.

I spent an entire evening shopping for that Ivanka Trump dress. Now, I need a white purse and a white sandals. When the TSX get boring, go outside shopping and spend all that money.

Jamieson Wellness Inc. (JWEL): on the run for gold returns

My latest investment in Jamieson Wellness Inc. (JWEL) is paying off. JWEL had gained 3.67% so far inside my non-registered portfolio. I need this new jewel to really kick it on and bring on smoothly some fresh new cash that I so desperately need at this time. Today, JWEL hit on $19.95 per share - among of its highest value ever. Unfortunately, Jamieson Wellness Inc. closed today session at $19.33. But quite good no matter what. And its quite easy to imagine JWEL hitting on the $20 per share in a close future. No, JWEL doesn't pay any dividend. Its a new stock to the TSX, its quite normal that its not paying a dividend yet, but I can easily imagine that JWEL will be paying a dividend later on. I wanted to invest in Jamieson because it was for me an interesting company to invest in and it bring in some diversification in my portfolio, as I don't really have anything related to health care inside my very very awesome portfolio.

Basically, I am running after fresh cold cash like always. Time is passing by, but nothing is really changing. And this special one will be turning on 37 years of life on August 27 so watch out. The world will never be the same. And be ready because I am back in the money making gold with JWEL. My latest proud is definitively paying off so I not getting lost. I still have a bit to do on the TSX. Its really my place to be, even if its quite hard to be an investor these days, especially on the TSX. I don't understand why our index is not exceeding the 15 500 points, its nothing I can understand and I don't care. I only want to make gains. 

My non-registered portfolio is really awesome, really great, but its only standing at $173 949.10 while it has really everything to be on the $180 000 mark. I have everything, at the exception of a great TSX. Its difficult to have amazing results when the TSX is hitting below the 15 500 points. I just cannot make it work.

Anyway, in the meantime, since it seem like I cannot find a decent and clean apartment at a decent price in Montreal, I went through a major organization of my current one and a half apartment. I gave away many bags of clothes, got rid of many things and it just felt better ever after. I am not the type who have that many clothes, but I am sweet hoarder. I like to keep things just in case..., and things just keep accumulating. Like for example, I had kept an old hair dryer that wasn't even working anymore, old clothes that I don't wear, old pair of sandals, old winter jacket....... and so on. Its just easier sometimes for me to put things away rather than getting rid of them. Its just in case that I would need them... I don't have any problems to get rid of things once I put myself into it, which happen from time to time. I am not a terrible hoarder, just a sweet nice one. Now, my apartment is more organize, and for the small space I have, that was important to do. 

I also got some new furniture and other stuff for my apartment. I had been living there for a really long time now and I never really spent money to get nice stuff. I bough a nice night table to replace the ugly plastic table I had and that I cannot see anymore. But see my problem, I didn't get rid of the ugly plastic table yet, I just slide it against the wall... I got to throw it away. I got a nice living room kind of chair that fit in my small apartment. I taught about a chair rather than a couch. And I also got a new kitchen table chair that is really comfortable. 

In Montreal, Ikea is located far away in the wood. I never went to Montreal Ikea. I lately located a nice furniture store downtown Montreal on René-Levesque: Structube. They have really nice pieces of furniture at a reasonable price. Structube offer delivery at $70 - which I had. And I had been delivered my furnitures in time and in good condition in very big boxes. I got this dining room chair - its the most comfortable chair ever. My nightstand kind of look like this but not exactly - it has one upper drawer but below is empty. It has the same white color and finish. I also got this armchair, in black. This recliner is really nice and comfortable for this old lady and not too heavy. I wanted light furniture, nothing too heavy. And best of all, the delivery guys where not ugly at all to look at ;-)

Welcome in my non-registered portfolio Jamieson Wellness Inc. (JWEL)!

I hope you miss me all very very much. I was away for a few vacation days to Cap-Pelé in New Brunswick where I spent a little fortune on lobsters, claims, strawberry, and blueberry wine... I carefully plan my vacation so it was straight one week ahead of the Quebec construction holiday so I could avoid the Quebeckers mass - I see enough of them in Montreal, thank you. I was just terribly lucky, the weather was super great all week long. I came back this past Tuesday with a caramel tan that you can only die for and as fresh and pur as a rose. And ever since, I am running of out of time to do anything, and especially no time for blogging at all. But surprise, I had made a brand new investment this week that I am so proud of! Ready to kick up some serious ass? I AM, with the help of a sexy vitamin push up. 

This week, I welcomed with the greatest proud a new baby of mine: Jamieson Wellness Inc. (JWEL). Following my sell of Exchange Income Corporation (EIF) because of an American son of a bitch, and after losing a bit more than $500 because of holding on to HCG, I wasn't going to just stay there, dumb and empty, doing nothing about it. Once you're in the stock market game, you're in for good, that you like it or not. There's just no way to escape, and the only way to possibly recover is to invest again, again and again! And at a point, the overall result is not too bad, because I am still kicking up some ass the usual way on my good players. 

Unfortunately, I was right when it comes to EIF and it's a good thing that I sold out all of my shares even if it was heartbreaking. I had been hurt so badly. However, don't you ever dare think that it will be without any consequences for Marc Cohodes. He's now one of my greatest ennemy and when I hate, I hate. I am taking all of my bad feelings and negativity and I am throwing him all at him, like a dark shadow. Cohodes may had think of himself as a smart ass for doing his short selling trick on my belove Exchange Income Corporation (EIF). But wait a minute buddy, actions are not without any consequences.

I got exactly the same bad feeling after investing in Jean-François Tardif JFT Strategies Fund (JFS.UN). It didn't take me long to realize that Jean-François Tardif didn't make a comeback so I can get rich on his back, because his JFS.UN was going no where. So I sell and I was pretty upset. And look what's happening now to Jean-François Tardif and his unfamous JFT Strategies Fund (JFS.UN). Units of JFS.UN had closed Friday session at a very poor $13.81. Over the years, Jean-François Tardif had lost his capacity to make gains on the stock market. And of course, I am just very too smart to be holding on to any JFT Strategies Fund (JFS.UN) units. Jean-François Tardif is just another example of a Quebecker who just cannot do it right when it come to money.

I just hope that Marc Cohodes is ready to what's going to happen to him next. I am a very bad girl.

With the money of my EIF sell, I bought some Canadian Imperial Bank Of Commerce (CM) shares. It's helping me to rebuild my dividend income, but I am not exactly where I used to be standing. And I didn't update yet my dividend income, so I don't exactly know on how much I am sitting on.

I knew Jamieson Wellness Inc. (JWEL) even before it made it entry on the TSX as I take daily a caplet of Jamieson Multi 100% complete for women and also a Jamieson High Potency Magnesium 500 mg and this way I am going to live on forever. I don't know for sure if those products have a good effect on my health, but I guess so, since I am in good health. I am trying to keep my distances from Quebec health care system because its of extreme poor quality, at the image of the people itslef.

I also really like Jamieson Wellness Inc. stock trade ticket: JWEL. Its like jewelllery, diamonds, MONEY. Let's go now Jamieson Wellness Inc. (JWEL), time had come to shine, be my proud and make me super rich.

Saying a sad goodbye Exchange Income Corporation (EIF). Goodbye love

Things are going a bit better for my non-registered portfolio. It closed today session at $175 042.78. My TFSA portfolio closed the session at $58 782.28. Today, I made the difficult decision to sell all of the Exchange Income Corporation (EIF) stocks I was holding inside my TFSA. I had been a long time investors of EIF and my shares had been bought at an average of $22.84 each, which is very good. I sell them all today and make a nice profit free of tax, but it wasn't with joy that I made this move. When it come to investing, I am more in an investing kind of move and I want to grow old holding on to the best of the best. The TSX is a castle with huge treasures.

However, my adventure with EIF came to an end because an American - oh surprise! - piece of shit of the name of Marc Cohodes is short selling Exchange Income Corporation (EIF). This could exposed EIF investors to big loses. Short selling should be made illegal. And I am imploring God and his darkest angels to throw all of the worst at Marc Cohodes. He might thing he's really smart guy now, but my attacking one of my stock, Marc Cohodes had just wake up a wolf who was quietly sleeping. There's no words to describe my anger. I was supposed to grow old on EIF, not sell it out. I hate that Marc Cohodes guy.

The TSX is the best stock market of the world and I can say so because I did my searches. When I invest, I try to target stock that present sky rocking chart. I did many searches using Stockopedia, desperately trying to find US stocks presenting such criteria and I can really say that the quality is really low in the US market. I was able to find only just a few US stocks sticking to my rule but I didn't even wrote them down. US is a big lack of stability and I don't want more exposure to chaotic US stock market at this time. Especially not under Donald Trump which is acting crazier and crazier every day. I came from fan to hater. I just wonder what happen next and I can't wait to see if Donald Trump Junior is going to hit a wall and go to prison. But in a place like the US, mediocrity is the norm. We can expect anything coming from Americans.

The TSX is no shit hold made for US investors. Its my place to be and shine. Anyone that hurt one of my babies can go straight to hell. And I wish hell for Marc Cohodes and a lot of pain. Pain so great that will make him remember that the TSX is not a playground. And I want him to feel my pain. I would like to be next to him right now so I can hit him sooooooo harddddddddd, for destroying my dream. Just stay on your side of the border, and I will stay on mine, on the BEST side. Not only that we have the best stock market, but Canadians are just so more smarter than Americans. On our 150th anniversary, we should scream it louder.

Small investors like myself have no choice. I went through some kind of similar experiences in the past, like for example in the case of Davis + Henderson Corporation (DH) . I only have that other example in mind right now. Retail investors always need to act quickly and when something like this show up, its sad, but its better to sell and profit from the gain because investor like Cohodes can really hurt the value of a stock, like really really badly. And I think that in the case of EIF, Cohodes had made and will make more damage to the value of the stock. Its my opinion and what had made me sell EIF today, but I really hope that my wrong. I was kind of doing in my pants today! I won't forget.

This being all said, no surprise, but this came sooner than I expect it: Bank of Canada is doing its job and is increasing interest rate. Party time is over. I am totally in favor of such action. Low interest rate is not a good thing in our economy. 

A reader just recently comment about the situation for Savaria Corporation (SIS), saying it went lower recently. Personally, I wouldn't worry about it, I won't sell my SIS just for a bit of volatility. A stock cannot always go up, it will sometimes go a bit down, its totally normal. Its the life on the market, sometimes the market go up, sometimes it go down, always for whatever reasons, but at the end, quality stocks always delivered. And nothing is wrong with SIS. If you are scared, you can always partly sell your position. There's currently no tangible adversity when it come to SIS. But for EIF, its a different story of course.

Imagine that because of my sell of EIF today, I now have close to 8k in fresh cold cash, all at my disposal to do whatever I want. I could pay off my big fat margin which is currently at $98 500, but still manageable. No very super great stock ideas at the present time, but I was thinking about pitching in Canadian Imperial Bank Of Commerce (CM) and enjoy some easy dividend. Since interest rates are going now up, banks are going to make great juicy profit, maybe 2017 will be a record year.

So let's go CM, be my newest proud. Get me in gorgeous profit and dividend like never before. Throw me out my chair and take me.


While facing adversity, the worst thing you can do is to do nothing and die.

Disastrous time for my non-registered portfolio

Jazz Festival in Montreal came to end. And this Saturday was really jam packed like I never saw it before. It was even hard just to stand there on my two feet and breath. I didn't know the artist but he's probably really popular.... Its sad that the Jazz Festival is already over because the best of Montreal summer is already gone with the wind and we are not getting a very nice summer when it come to the weather. So far, its been chitty just like the stock market. This being said, today was the perfect summer day in Montreal with wind blowing me up - but its just hard to have 2 days of good weather in a row. Its like our whole environment is very disturb. Anyhow, I prefer this kind of summer rather than too hot weather because I have problem standing the heat.

My poor non-registered portfolio closed Friday session at $174 164.14. Despite the fact that its down of a couple thousands, I see good things going on. One of my latest investment, CAE Inc., is up by 0.33% (not a lot, but its still a gain). I prefer not to talk about HCG, but its not going well for me on that investment. Another latest investment, WSP Global Inc. (WSP) is up of 4.08%, that's really good. And other older investments are doing well too. 

But for how long?

And what about a bit of Crius Energy Trust (KWH.UN) for my portfolio?

Right now, I am such a sucker. My very beautiful non-registered portfolio closed down at $174 421.13. My TFSA at... $58 616.14, when it should clearly be at 60k. Its getting bloody and I am full of rage. I really hate it when the stock market play it dirty dance on me. But it doesn't keep me from wanting more, just like if I would be a xxx dominatrix who really enjoy it. I have right now the oh so perfect song for this perfect moment!

Remember Gargage? I used to really like this song. And its video. Back in the 90s, Shirley Manson was the grunge princess. And today, I am taking the lead by being a very dirty garbage dividend girl.

Right now, while listening to Garbage Push it song on and on and on, I am all eyes on Crius Energy Trust (KWH.UN) who's been announcing an increase of 2% of their dividend distribution. Stockopedia is currently of no help to tell me if this baby worth it or not. Is Crius Energy Trust (KWH.UN) a garbage investment? I truly don't know. But the $0.8043 annual dividend is of somewhat really appealing. And I cannot help myself. I cannot control the appeal of money. I am so extremely sorry.

Justice for Omar Khadr is being made in Canada. Long life to Omar Khadr

10.5 millions coming from Canadians tax money is going in Omar Khadr and I am really happy about it. Justice is being made. 

If I would had been a child soldier like Omar Khadr, I would had killed Americans and I would had killed many of them. We'll never know for sure if Omar killed Tabitha Speer husband, but one thing is for sure and is true, soldiers die at war. Its their ultimate duty. But it seem that the poor Tabitha Speer don't get that yet. Soldiers shouldn't enroll in the military if they want to live a long and happy life. If Americans are stupid enough to fight Muslims, its there very own problem. ISIS soldiers are among the more vicious of all because their heart if full of hate and anger. No one can defeat them. Their faith and anger, and their ultimate hunger make them the best soldiers which we cannot beat off even today. Their willingness to beat the enemy is unstoppable. I would like Omar Khadr to sue the US government for being incarcerated in Guantanamo Bay for so many years when he was only a child. A child soldier remains a child. The most courageous Canadian of all time is not even a real Canadian, he's a f Muslim! By her conduct, Tabitha Speer is not honoring her late husband. She's acting like a real bitchy American, with very low class. Shame on her. Its was Chris Speer role to die at war. It was his duty it was his turn to die. Just another soldier, like many of them who die at war. There's nothing wrong with his death.
We just celebrated Canada 150th birthday on July 1th and today July 4th, its celebration day in the USA. Despite those happy days, its not an easy thing to be on the stock market, its quite rough. I was hoping to hit on the 250k net worth by the end of 2017. Not that I want to be pessimist, but chances are that I probably won't be able to reach that goal, at least not in 2017. And its really alright. Its good to have money goal, but sometimes, circumstances make it impossible to reach those goals. Being almost 100% invested has its good and bad sides. One major problem is that whenever the stock market is acting difficult, well, the portfolio value go down. But one good thing is whenever the stock market go up, my income grow. And currently, there's a lot of volatility in the air. Its very hard to navigate this way, without direction, without any real sense of grow. I actually really dislike this current state of the stock market. Its not the first and last time I am going through such conditions, but I hate it. I really do. I enjoy myself when I am on top of my game, not when the stock market does its job in my hands if you see what I mean.

Ok, so today, the TSX closed the session at 15 130.661 points, leaving my non-registered portfolio at $175 885.60 and my TFSA portfolio at $59 322.66. My sexy big fat margin is at $98 540.78, leaving me a free little $17 205.10. My situation is not so bad, but I would like better data. Like right now, my non-registered portfolio got everything it take to be on the 180k value. But the TSX is not helping this bitch in any kind of way. 

Since its not clear if Home Capital Group Inc. (HCG) is paying or not a dividend, I actually removed it from my dividend sheet. In result, I am now at an average of $675.44. Good enough for now. With a margin usage of almost 100k, its time for me to slow it down a bit and pay down. I guess its the best thing I can do for now. My very sexy extreme emotional investment in HCG might not have been the greatest investment move ever - especially knowing I didn't sell when I could had made a couple hundred bucks. I bough at $17.20 - as soon as HCG don't go too low, I will be happy.

On the other side, some investments made lately had been doing very great, like for example WSP Global Inc. (WSP) is growing and enjoying its stay inside my non-registered portfolio.

Fact is, during desperate boring stock market, its the time to tight up the teeth to the dust like a dog and burn all the excess of energy in a way or the other. Its not anytime soon that I will accept defeat.

My dividend income is now close to the $700 per month

I visited another apartment this evening, but it was way too small and no balcony... I am trying to find a new apartment at a cheaper price than of what I am paying now, but its not actually working for now. And I don't want of an apartment that will cost me more than what I am paying now. Its all very complicated and Montreal if full of dirty rat holes.

In exactly 2 months from now, I will be turning 37. I am not exactly a young woman anymore, but I don't feel old. I don't think I look my age, or at least I wish so. Anyhow, I never saw a year going on so fast. Life goes on, and the stock market is not exactly cooperating. The TSX closed without real direction today. Nothing is going on like it should. Its all pretty mess up. 

My latest investment in Home Capital Group Inc. (HCG) took a bad trip today. Anyhow, I discovered that HCG actually pay a dividend. And I also notice just today that I totally forgot to add WSP dividend in my spreadsheet income. And I also forgot to add in the latest NFI dividend increased. All that together make a new annual dividend income of $8 305.28, or the equivalent of $692.11 per month. My $700 goal is just so close! It was a fantasy of mine to hit on the $700 dividend income. And its now about to happen - or should I say soon. 

From there, it will be easier for me to repay my big fat margin account. So watch out.

The extraordinary Warren Buffett is investing in Home Capital Group Inc. (HCG)!

Oh, and I should not forgive: Welcome in my non-registered portfolio Home Capital Group Inc. (HCG)!!!!

WOW, summer is red hot this year. And summer is always busy with all kind of things going on like drinking and stuff on and it make it even harder to post anything at all. But currently, the weather is turning a bit cold so I decided to stay inside and post on about my latest investment adventure, with a little glass of Cuban Legendario on my side. Its too bad, but Legendario liquor can only be purchased in Cuba, and you can only bring 2 bottles, so got to drink with love. Legendario is really good - it has an in deep taste of Cuba in it, its quite hot hot stuff.

This time of year is usually really great for me, that I am drinking or not. I remembered last year around the same time, I shake up a bit my portfolio by adding on great stocks like Morneau Shepell Inc. (MSI), Keg Royalties Income Fund (The) (KEG.UN), Thomson Reuters Corporation (TRI), just to name those few. And I also remembered dumping some old stuff too that I wasn't in anymore, like saying good bye to old lovers.

I guess for this past week, the biggest news was to learned that Warren Buffett was investing in Home Capital Group Inc. (HCG). That was back on June 22. On that special day, I didn't know what my day was about to be up too, but I was wearing one of my most beautiful dress, and I had my nails and hair done. I had no idea what was going to happen, but it was almost like I knew that something was about happen. I rarely do my hair properly these days because of lack of time, but on June 22, I was as pretty as I could possibly be and on June 22, a news took the TSX by stormed: Berkshire Hathaway Inc.was about to invest massively in Home Capital Group Inc. (HCG): 2 billion dollars! WOW. SOOO exciting! Could this be the first time that THE Warren Buffett invest in my fabulous TSX? (I really don't know, but not that I know of). Anyway, this is the kind of things that really turn me on. And I was not going to turn my back on it. Oh no! No money to invest? No problem. It doesn't matter, I have a margin account baby.

Bad bad girl.

Before the TSX opened, I was aware of all that. And it sound like pretty exciting deal to me! There was going to be some great money to be made and the money was just waiting for me, that I had some or not to invest. So as 9:30 am was slowly kicking on, I immediately bought some HCG stocks. I got in at $17.25 per share. Following my fabulous move, HCG shares price went... down. I started worried, what is going wrong?? And I wondered if all investors where still in bed or haven't heard about the great news yet. I understand that Quebec investors might not be smart enough to understand the ultimate treasure of what this deal really mean, but what about the rest of Canada? And what about Americans who can invest on the TSX? Anyhow, later on during the day, HCG moved all the way up, just like it was expected to be. I could had quickly sell off my shares and I would had made a couple hundreds that would had made me very very happy, but this time, I am in for thousands in profit, not just a few hundreds. And for that to happen, I am ready to use all of my bright patience and wait.

This deal had to be approved by the TSX first and maybe later on by HCG shareholders, but who can say no to Warren Buffett? I certainly won't refused anything to Warren Buffett. Fact that Buffett is getting involved in HCG is really good for the image of the company and its an extraordinary sign of trust. I am sure that both the TSX authorities and HCG shareholders - and that's including myself - will approve the deal. After all, we are smart Canadians.

If everything go well, I truly believe that HCG can hit back its old $32.78 value. And that's what I am expecting. It could be a slow mover process, but it could happen.While waiting, its quite exciting to be holding on to the same stocks that Buffett himself will soon acquire - at a much better bargain price, but still...

On other news, my annual dividend income (excluding RRSP, as always) is at $7 981.08, an average of $665.09 per month. I am only missing a $420 to hit on the $700 per month. Its just very unfortunate, but Home Capital Group Inc. (HCG) doesn't pay a tiny cent of dividend cash.

I suspected my net worth to be of $207 000 right now, which is not too bad. Its still possible for me to hit on the 250k net worth before the end of the year, but I will need a good market situation and little angels carefully watching my back. And my plan for Home Capital Group Inc. (HCG) will have to work out.

Welcome in my non-registered and RRSP portfolio CAE Inc. (CAE)

Lately, CAE Inc. (CAE) had been in the news for good reasons, while Bombardier Inc. (BBD.B) is getting under fired for letting one of its tanker truck in pretty bad condition on the road and causing a collision in a highway almost a years ago. Not only that Bombardier Inc. haven't been able to deliver its C Series on time, and not only that Bombardier had paid its administration millions of dollars on money coming from tax money, this time, Bombardier Inc. (BBD.B) is responsible for the death of a poor man. Being irresponsible is very typical of Bombardier and I just don't understand why foreign companies are keeping trust in Bombardier and keep buying its products. Its a complete non-sense. Bombardier Inc. (BBD.B) is not an honest and reliable company. Like Jean-François Tardif and Eugénie Bouchard, one in the financial industry and one as a so call tennis star, Bombardier is showing off the true colors of Quebec province: unable to perform.

Bombardier, Eugenie Bouchard and Jean-François Tardif are 3 Quebec "things" that disgust me. Vast majority of Quebeckers have that thing for being incompetent. Eugénie Bouchard should perform at a strip club because she has the cheap stripper look in her Sports Illustrated photo shoots. She looks like a little girl out of place desperately showing off her skin to prove to the world that she's somebody. What a pity. Female professional athletes should never take their clothes off for the came. Ronda Rousey did the same mistake, and we are not hearing much from her these days. Its easier to play around naked than to perform, that's for sure.

I doubt that Eugénie Bouchard tennis career will last very long. She has a very poor spirit. Whenever the poor girl broke her racket on the court, she makes me laugh. She might be pretty, but she's not a fighter. She's not a very strong athlete. Quebec is being perfectly well represented with her. For me, Eugénie Bouchard is the perfect Quebec fresh face: arrogant by nature and a complete loser.

And what about Jean-François Tardif? Back in the days, Jean-François Tardif was a fund hedge manager superstar. He retired, and made his comeback with the JFT Strategies Fund (JFS.UN). And of course, I jumped in the occasion. It was the promise of big gains. I always knew Tardif was going to make a comeback. Once a man tasted money and power, he can't get enough. So Jean-François Tardif made his comeback just I expected, but his JFS.UN is a deception, its not performing well, and it doesn't pay any dividend. So investors like me are just getting screw up because its doesn't matter if Jean-François Tardif is in the profit zone. No matter what, the rat is sucking some management fees out of poor investors like myself. It didn't took me long to realize that Jean-François Tardif no longer knew what to do or how to trades to make profit. Tardif is just completely lost and guess what, I am doing better as performance on my own. I could steal Tardif at anytime and I could make investors happy among the way. Its sad, but Tardif had shown is true colors too: he's just another incompetent Quebecker. And I am going to kick his white ass. This is revenge baby. I am going to do much better on my own. Thank you and goodbye love.

Yesterday, there was all those good news surrounding CAE Inc. (CAE). Just go find out. Basicaly, CAE is training pilot. Demand is huge. The need for new pilots keep growing. CAE is a leader in its field. For the past couple years, CAE Inc. (CAE) had just keep growing and growing. There's more grow to come. CAE pay a dividend. CAE is a Quebec base company - its kind of the only negative point.

No matter what, I decided to invest in CAE Inc. (CAE) in both my non-registered and RRSP portfolio because I am only looking to invest for my own benefit - first. And companies like this one are hard to find. Its hard to find reliable companies to invest in. So being a "Quebec" company doesn't automatically mean that it stop all investing process. Because I am so lovely smart, I can see beyond my hate.

And this is where everything take it sense: when you close your eyes and see all deep down what you are made of, you know your strength, you know your weakness. I truly believe that its when you know everything about yourself that you can, at that time only, be a successful investor. And its what I am trying to be. So go there CAE Inc. (CAE) be my latest proud and go kick some ass your new princess. Do as I want and give me the royal capital gain treatment.

Saying hello to a $171 040.26 non-registered portfolio value. But is it here to stay?

Its been rough for the past couple days, but the TSX is going back on track, and that being for my very own benefit. And as always, my favorite stock market is treating me like I deserve: like a princess. I am really getting the princess treatment whenever my non-registered portfolio decide to behave and hit on the 171k+. Today, I closed at $171 040.26, which was a good day. I once make it to the 172k, that was quite something! Got to enjoy the moment because sometimes, rich proud and extreme arrogance don't last long. Stock investing is a very dirty thing and it can be source of both joy and pain.

The weather had been awfully hot this weekend, but I didn't mind, as I had been able to see a live free show of IAM at the Francopholies right here in Montreal. That's right, the bad boys of Marseille were in town! And it was quite amazing. I took a couple of videos, which I will try to download on YouTube so you can enjoyed, just like if you where next to me, watching IAM show. Now that I saw IAM at least once in my lifetime, I can die in peace, whatever it has to be in a building in fire or in a terrorist attack. My favorite IAM song is L'empire du côté obscure (rough English translation: The dark side empire):

Its not IAM first major show and certainly not the last, but they seemed very happy to be performing in Montreal. It was really amazing. France is home of many great rappers. Sniper is probably another real favorite of mine. So much better than anything you can find in Quebec province, maybe at the exception of Koriass and a few others, but its a very limited quality scene. A reason why France rappers are so good is that their background take deep roots in the worst of what France hold in term of humane misery. Next to that, most of the little Quebec rappers like Rémi Daoust alias "Rymz" are so out of personality with poor Eminem wanna be kind of style. Just no vibes at all, very terribly boring artist, its incredible. And I got quite insulted this past Saturday night, when I had to listen to Rymz at the Fancopholies, between some pre teen girls and douche bags. Ahhh! What an awful time. I mean come on!

Here is what to illustrate what I am trying to explain in a very clear matter. Dear friend, you are about to experience the real power of France rap music... Are you just ready?

First, listen to Sniper Gravé dans la roche - its hard to find anything better than this. I never get tired of this one:

Good isn't?

And now Indélébile of Rymz:

Kind of boring isn't? There's no appeal in Rymz music, except maybe for 12 years old girl... And not to forget the douches! Good rap music transcend you and move your soul. With his music, Rymz is far from being transcending.

Another great French rapper: La Fouine. Proof that Muslims know how to rap.

Do feel the difference, on how La Fouine and Sniper are so good compare to Rymz?

Now thanks to the Dividend Girl, you know what good French rap music sound like. And because we don't know what kind of pain can bring tomorrow my TSX, a more dirty gangster song of France ghetto for sweet dreams:

As the weather is getting warmer, the TSX is in desperation

I had made a few interesting visits as I am very actively searching for a new apartment, but since I am looking something that will fit in for the long run, I haven't stopped my choice yet. I found something great at $640, but there wasn't a good balcony and it was missing some sun light but otherwise, it was pretty decent. Another place that I visit was very great but was only missing some storage space... With all the clothes, beauty products, books and my old university stuff, I do need good storage space. Its the reason why I want to leave my current apartment. Its hard to find an apartment in Montreal but I guess it can be even harder in other cities so I will try not to complaint too much. This apartment search is sucking a lot of my energy.

As you imagine, right now, finding an apartment is pretty hard, but the TSX is pushing it even harder just to add a bit more difficulties on my shoulders. We are getting closer to the 15 000 points rather than the 16 000 points and its just so sad because I really had been on top of my game. I had been THE TSX Queen. However, dividend juice is still in and at now an equivalent of $660 per month, I am at least happy for that part. My non-registered portfolio closed today at $169 747.67, my TFSA at $58 858.68, RRSP at $36 381.10. Its never easy to be on the stock market when it go down like this.

My latest investment are not doing too bad despite it all. NVU.UN is up +0.95%. NA down of -0.44%. AAR.UN up +4.32%... There's always a bit of good going on, but when the markets are down, its not the perfect time to check out on stocks. Its however the perfect time to buy.

Welcome in my portfolio Northview Apartment Real Estate Investment Trust (NVU.UN), National Bank of Canada (NA), CGI Group Inc. (GIB.A)!!!

I am still searching for an apartment and its not funny at all. Princess haven't find her new castle yet. This evening, I went visiting 3 places. One of those apartment was perfect except for the size - way to small - and actually smaller than my current apartment. I am always amazed when I visit an apartment who's actually smaller than mine. I didn't know it could exist in Montreal. 

And actually, I can affirm the following because since May, and believe me when I say, I had been actively searching for an apartment, too many Quebeckers are fucking rats and have very poor hygiene. Some apartment I visited where so dirty, very awful. Ok, I can hear you from here, just like my mother, saying you can clean it up. Yeah, for sure, but what about the other apartments there, what if I got infected my bed bugs or other vicious things? That's the major problem. So I had set up some rule for myself, that if I visit an apartment that is dirty, I just don't go there. Oven and fridge also need to be very clean. If you are not clean yourself, don't ever read my blog again. I hate you, awful dirty individuals.

For me, being clean is a very important value. As I grow up, my mother was doing everything and the house was very clean. I just don't understand how those people can live in their shit. I understand they are Quebeckers, but still. I clean my place every week. I regularly clean my oven and I clean my fridge every week. I clean the only apartment window I have every week. Everything I live in is clean. Very clean.

Something I don't understand is the presence of carpet in apartments and lobbies. Just so disgusting! Montreal is a hell of a dirty city. And I truly wish every readers of mine something better than Montreal to live in. Montreal is not a good place. Its extremely hard to find an apartment. I should be able to get something for $650 a month but I just can't. And for Montreal, its quite awful. We are not in Toronto or Halifax here. We are only in Montreal.

This evening pass like in fire hell as I had 3 places to visit. One of those places was close to metro Frontenac. I didn't know that area, but near outside the metro, corner Bercy and Ontario, there's a very explicit strip club sign and some strange man fooling around looking at me. So I turned around and call back the homeowner later on. You could be amuse by this, but its not funny to see explicit sex in where it supposed to be an affordable neighborhood to live in. And if you worry for me, don't just ever be, because I am very strong and I wouldn't hesitate to hit like a tiger and run out like a rabbit in case of ultimate need. I am just waiting for my time, and its anytime.

I have all of the very pretty summer clothes, the nice jewelries, I have the big sexy Persol sunglasses to match my big fat margin portfolio situation, I have the big perfect portfolio, I have everything in the world for me, but I just cannot find a correct place to live and this is very unfair. I won't ever forgive Montreal for doing this to me. I hate you damn city. From all my heart, I hate you so much right now and I am very very upset.

I have a chitty life, but my investment life is more interesting and its something you should very seek into for more.

I made today two investments inside my TFSA portfolio:
National Bank of Canada (NA) - only because I didn't know what to invest in and NA recently increased their dividend and I am the Dividend Girl, so why not.
Northview Apartment Real Estate Investment Trust (NVU.UN) - this is a Derek Foster investment. If its good enough for Derek Foster, its good enough for me! And on top of that, NVU,UN dividend yield is VERY very high. So enjoy the free cash investors! Let's go!

Also today, I had invested in CGI Group Inc. (GIB.A) for my RRSP portfolio.

I still have a couple thousands available to invest inside my RRSP. Yeah!

My dividend income is now set to a $660 a month and I am looking forward for a $700 anytime soon.

The real fun only begun. Its just a matter of knowing if you are ready for more because I am.

Welcome in my non-registered portfolio WSP Global Inc. (WSP)!

With everything going on right now around the word, its not an easy thing to decide to invest the hard earned money. It seem to me that people of my generation have everything harder and at a higher price. It take one real hunger just to make things happen. But I haven't been done too bad despite it all. The successes, big or small, contribute at making the road a bit more likely to be somewhat acceptable. When you had been investing for many years in a row, and that a big part of your life is just about following the stock market, it make it barely impossible to get away from it. Investing is about the only thing that keep me going. Its what I like to do. I however find it hard to understand where the world is hitting next in all this madness. We are dealing with so many problems. Can the stock market really overcome and be in the profit zone anyway? I personally think so, because capitalist run the world and not terrorist. It come at a high price, with a lot of unknown and volatility in the air.

I am very disappointed by Donald Trump. The man is a complete idiot. I felt devastated when Trump refused to handshake Angela Merkel at the White House. It was very heart breaking to watch, her begging him in front of the cameras to exchange an handshake. For me, that was my breaking point. What an horrible man with so poor manners toward one of top notch woman in modern politic! But with recent terrorist attack, Donald Trump reached a complete new level of idiocy. I got pretty shake up by Trump comments over London mayor. So harsh, so mean and so out of context. Now Donald Trump is getting a very bad reputation and I doubt he'll ever get over it. He's showing signs of very poor judgement and I just really dislike him being on Twitter so much. Poor stupid old man. And poor Americans. And poor us.

Despite it all, I decided today to invest in WSP Global Inc. (WSP). With all of the good stocks I hold inside my portfolio, finding WSP on Stockopedia was a blessing. With all of the great stocks that I already hold in my collection, you can imagine, its only getting harder and harder to find a new jewels. But the stock market is all full of surprises, you never know what can come on your way.

I invest it WSP inside my non-registered portfolio. I still have left $5 500 available in cash inside my TFSA to invest, and I also have a couple of thousands inside my RRSP waiting to jump back in the market. For my RRSP, I am thinking of investing some money in CGI Inc. (GIB.A). Its unfortunate, but GIB.A doesn't pay any dividend.

Rocking shining Canadian stocks who are stealing the show on the TSX. Or the very best of the Dividend Girl

My non-registered portfolio closed today session at somewhat strong $168 039.51 despite the TSX closing at a low 15 372.35 points. I estimate my net worth being at $204 880, no real big increase since last April, when I was happily standing on a $204 277.66 net worth. At least, I am not in the negative zone and I am not losing any money. And at least now, a 204k net worth had become a new "usual". And how that actually happen? Its because I stick and hold on so tight to my best stocks just like if they were diamonds covering my naked body. I not only love my stocks, I am blessing them with all my heart and soul.

Among my many stocks, many many of them are performing soo well, its amazing. Wait stop right there. First of all, lets sheer up to Canadian National Railway Co (CNR) who had hit on today to its new 52 week highest value ever, and that being today on the edge of $104.51 per share. Good job CNR, its always a pleasure to be on your side. Whenever, wherever.

I have a long time history with CNR as I invested in many occasions in the stock, buying whenever it was hitting low. At the current $104.41 per share, its certainly not the time to buy CNR. CNR always go low at some point for whatever reason. CNR is definitively the type of stock you can wait before investing in because it will go lower sooner or later. Just be patient and wait for the opportunity. Great capital gains are to be made, but CNR pay a very tiny little boring dividend. And I guess its the most difficult part, to have thousands and thousands well invested, but invested in a stock that pay very little in dividend. Anyhow, I will never of my life lets go my precious CNR stocks. This is the kind of stock you hold on to until you die.

The trick is to be so smart that you actually forget about the low yield. Its better to even just forgive about dividend yield because its not what it entirely matter. What really matter is to hold on to stock that gain so much in capital gain that it blow your mind. This is the kind of effect that have Savaria Corporation (SIS) on me right now. Inside my non-registered and RRSP portfolio, SIS had made enormous gains. And back on May 7, I was posting on my very best all time achievers, in case you miss it:

FIRST POSITION: Premium Brands Holdings Corporation (PBH): +372.14%
SECOND: New Flyer Industries Inc. (NFI): +341%

The North West Company Inc. (NWC): +32.16%
Canadian National Railway Co (CNR) (in TFSA portfolio): +31.82%

Toronto-Dominion Bank (T) (in RRSP portfolio): +30.06%
Canadian Utilities Limited (CU): +27.44%
Agrium Inc. (AGU): +27.38%
Park Lawn Corporation (PLC) (in TFSA portfolio): +26.59%
Morguard North American Residential Real Estate Investment Trust (MRG.UN): +20.11%
Emera Incorporated (EMA): inside RRSP: +75.49%
Since that time, SIS only went all the way up.
You'll easily understand that my obsession of the time, other than desperately trying to find another apartment in Montreal, my really number one obsession is to find new stocks that can be just as high fun as Savaria Corporation (SIS). Some of my top performers had been find on Stockopedia, by browsing their many screens: Park Lawn Corporation (PLC), Morguard North American Residential Real Estate Investment Trust (MRG.UN), and not to forget, Richards Packaging Income Fund (RPI.UN). Pure Industrial Real Estate Trust (AAR.UN) is not among my top performer yet, it may never been, but AAR.UN is a decent stock. It was also find using Stockopedia.
Instead of just waiting for Gordon Pape and Derek Foster and Susan Brunner to came with something interesting, I can now can do things on my own. Stock ideas are hard to come by. The ultimate challenge is to find other stocks just like SIS to pull the juice from that will just have the same "effect" on me and my portfolio. But how do I do that? I am asking the question, but of course, I know the answer. By simply checking on which screens Savaria Corporation (SIS) may be on in Stockopedia. Thankfully, SIS appears on at least one screen. And do you want to take a wild guess on which one it is? Do you really want to know?

Well, its the 52 Week High Momentum Screen! Of course. And of course, CNR appears on the exact same screen. Here is where the real fun begin: THE SEARCH. The ultimate search for my next best thing. Despite the excitement, its in time like these you need to remember what you are looking for:
-top chart stocks that have a great past history, with a chart going all the way up
-dividend payer
-stock that had survived the 2008 crash and are now at a higher value than before 2008

Stick to the plan so you just don't invest in some junk stock that will only make you lose money at the end. Just at a time where you could almost think that you'll never ever find any other very great interesting stocks to invest in, well, something finally show up!
Now, are you just ready to read on what is my newest everything?

The discovery of the evening is definitively: WSP Global Inc. (WSP).

Killer chart just like I love them, with a nice 2.956% dividend yield that make sense. And on top of that, StockRank is really high (that's a Stockopedia feature). Good job girl, I just find a new stock to invest in. Welcome in the house WSP.

Saying goodbye to Open Text Corporation (OTEX). Adios

Its been busy this past few days between Montreal 375 celebrations (yes, I had been celebrating Montreal) and searching for an apartment. My only luxury at this time being that I am not stuck in a one year contract and I can leave whenever I want, I just need to give one month notice. So I decided to move only once I will find the really perfect apartment at a fair price, which really need to be below $700 per month. I am targeting the $650 per month or less please God. I had stayed at my current place on and off for probably more than 10 years now. So basically, my next place - If I stay there for 10 years - will probably see me retiring or something like it. So no rush, but I continue my searches, which keep me busy as soon as hit outside work. I have little time left for my portfolio, but today, I decided to trash out some stocks. Get out of the woods baby, and go survive some place else please. All that because I will be turning......... 37 years old on August 27 and I have so no time to lose now. This time is for real. I cannot afford stucking on stocks driving me no where. I need money and I need more dividend. And I need right now. Get out of the way lazy stocks!

In that very wild ocean move, I decided today to sell off my Open Text Corporation (OTEX) stocks, all of them. The reason of my sell is still unclear, even for me, but mostly, I was getting poor dividend pay with little return in capital grow. I could had keep in OTEX, its not a bad stock, but I am tired of stocks going no where. So bye-bye Open Text Corporation (OTEX). And another real reason being that this girl is getting quite very fatty on her margin! Bad bad girl! So paying it down a little won't hurt anything, especially knowing that the dividend yield on OTEX wasn't high enough to even cover margin interest cost… I sell OTEX at a profit of $10 and a fee pennies. Following the sell of OTEX in my non-registered portfolio, my margin is at $88 924.42 - still quite heavy, but the portfolio can handle it. Why? Because I have so many good stocks in that non-registered portfolio, its simply amazing. I am just so on my place on the TSX.

I hold enough of stocks like CNR in my portfolio that pay very little in dividend distribution, I am looking for more like a 4% or 5% yield please. See, I am kind of getting stuck in the dividend dangerous zone. Investing while focusing on dividend yield is not a good thing. Many very good quality stocks pay only tiny little dividend. It’s the way it is. But at a point, I cannot help it, I would like a 3% yield maybe.. Is that really too much asking?

Now you are understanding my point, I am looking, so desperately searching for stocks that will satisfy my hunger. And its not an easy thing, especially when my portfolio is already oversize. The best stocks? I certainly hold on to a lot of them in my portfolio. But I cannot help it thinking that I MAYBE miss something while browsing on Stockopedia maybe? Or maybe I haven't been working hard enough. Anyhow, the search is not over. It will just be never over. This is actually more difficult than finding a place where to live. This is hard and as time pass by, its getting harder and harder for just a bunch of various reasons.

Today, I also partly sell my investment in Andrew Peller Limited (ADW.A) that I hold inside my TFSA. I love Andrew Peller, I really do – its why I only partly sell it. ADW. A will always have a special place in my portfolio, as long as it beware. For now, everything good when it come to ADW.A.

And talking about other stocks driving me no where and insane, we have in the lot:
Hydro One Limited (H). So far, H only grow of 0.43% in my portfolio! But the dividend yield is of 3.75%. Like more or less expecting, Hydro One Limited (H) doesn't have extraordinary results on Stockopedia. Just quickly looking at the stockrank and the newest stockrank style feature......Wanna find out what its all about? Click right here. Funny thing is that BMO Capital believe that H will reach the $26 per share.... I so don't believe that and H is soooo on the moved to get out of my TFSA portfolio right in the trash can honey. The opinion of BMO Capital worth absolutely nothing for me. H is just the kind of stock that like to do nothing if not just suck the energy out of its investors. And you know the drill, you don't behave, you get out of there. 

I am so not ashamed of exposing the true this way for the little benefits of investors, but what I am dealing with right now is one of the dangers related to holding too many stocks in a portfolio. Its the result of an over drain diversification. But for my defend, I can only say that no one will ever be able to say that I actually didn't try. And on top of that, I have no trust what so ever in any of my stocks to invest massively in them. I am a sexy market chicken and I totally assume. Worst scenario, if a stock doesn't please me well, I sell and - very worst of the worst scenario, I lose money. Thank God it doesn't happen too often.

I am mostly a buy and hold type of investor for the largest part - like of the what Derek Foster teach - and its why I had been successful so far. But when a stock need to be sell, I sell. And I am just very happy that I sold WTE, SJ, and DH, among other.

I have now more than 5k available to invest inside my TFSA and believe it or not, I have no ideas what to do with the money. That happen more and more often these days and its extremely annoying. I have money and I just don't know what to invest in!!??? And I am just going to have more cash when I will be selling that hell of Hydro One - if I decided to do so.

Anyhow, to finish on a very happy note until the last post, I can say that my latest investment in Pure Industrial Real Estate Trust (AAR.UN) had been another very great choice of mine and let it shine and collect happily the dividend. Let's go.

Thank you
