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%
THIRD: Methanex Corporation (MX): +272.61%

Lassonde Inc. (LAS.A): +99.38%
K-Bro Linen Inc. (KBL): +91.20% 
TMX Group Inc. (X): +87.86%
Savaria Corporation (SIS) (in RRSP portfolio): +83.29%
Saputo Inc. (SAP): +81.18%
Enbridge Income Fund Holdings Inc. (ENF): +78.88%
Loblaw Companies (L): +71.01%

Exchange Income Corporation (EIF): +52.14%
CT Real Estate Investment Trust (CRT.UN): +46.16%
Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS): +41.98% 
Park Lawn Corporation (PLC): +41.54%
BCE Inc. (BCE): +39.72%
The North West Company Inc. (NWC): +32.16%
Canadian National Railway Co (CNR) (in TFSA portfolio): +31.82%
Emera Inc. (EMA): +31.36% 
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.

BMO Bank of Montreal is increasing my credit line interest rate for no reason

I received a letter from BMO Bank of Montreal saying that they are increasing the interest rate on my credit line of 0.61%. I wasn't expecting anything better coming from a Quebec institution, especially knowing how Quebeckers are incompetent. And this being for absolutely no reason at all. The prime rate haven't increased in Canada. Anyhow, I don't use that BMO credit line. And do you really believe that I will be using my BMO Bank of Montreal credit line anytime soon? Hell no. I am done with BMO Bank of Montreal. I also have a credit card with BMO Bank of Montreal, and I was using it quite regularly. Well, I have great news for you, I won't be using both my BMO Bank of Montreal credit card and credit line anymore. There you go my bunch of little f@ckers, acting like if they were big players... Of my life, I will never used any BMO Bank of Montreal credit products ever again. Want to hit me? I will hit harder.

I had experimented something similar with RBC Royal Bank a couple of years ago. I reacted by selling all of my RBC mutual fundd and fact is, I had been doing better ever since. On top of that, I no longer use any RBC credit products. And really, everyone should be doing the same. When a bank is increasing interest rate over no reason at all, especially when no changes had been apply to the prime rate, well, to received an increased on a credit product is really insulting.

Its now official, I have 2 banking enemies: BMO Bank of Montreal and RBC Royal Bank.

On the other hand, CIBC had been really good for me. I had received a free CIBC dividend credit card at no annual fees, which had been waive. Also, really recently, I had been offer a 0% credit card balance transfer promotion from CIBC. Customers need to stick to the best and in my case, CIBC always been really generous, offering me multiple credit card balance transfer, credit lines, etc. Currently, I consider CIBC as being the best bank to do business with. I might start a new broker account with them considering that CIBC always treated me like a princess.

Too bad that the TSX pull back today, but that doesn't really matter because my very awesome non-registered portfolio closed today session at a very good $169 600.86. My TFSA portfolio is at $60 267.31. I still have left $3 611.43 at my disposal to invest inside my TFSA, $4 000.40 inside my RRSP and $4 707.99 in cold cash that I am not trying to use - but I could eventually use $1 100 out of it for investment purposes if I find something interesting. 

I would really like to invest a new 5k, but at a yield of 5%, nothing more, nothing less.

Welcome in my TFSA portfolio Pure Industrial Real Estate Trust (AAR.UN)!

I still haven't find a new apartment, but I am actively searching. I am actually experienced the same problems about 10 years ago when I find my current place: its difficult to find something at a good price, but something that make sense at the same time. Currently, I am searching for a new apartment because here the rent increased every years and it begin to be too much asking for a tiny one and a half apartment. My current apartment being quite small, at now $665, I am feeling exploited. Montreal is better for renter than many Canadian cities, but its still difficult. One of the reasons why I have so much now is that Montreal is an affordable city to live in on a middle class salary. If I am having problem in Montreal, imagine the trouble that it might be to live in Toronto and Vancouver - or even worst: Hong Kong, Paris, New York, London... Anyhow, the search continue. And I won't mind staying where I am another year to put money aside for an eventually move - even if I already have plenty of cash - especially now. Because you know the girl, I am only getting better and this portfolio is only going up up up.

My non-registered portfolio closed today session at a very good $169 142.01. I couldn't believe my eyes. When this baby will be hitting the 170k mark, I don't know what I will do. Premium Brands Holdings Corporation (PBH) gains a spectacular 4.23%. Great good things!

I finally bought some Pure Industrial Real Estate Trust (AAR.UN) shares today for my TFSA portfolio. It was hard to resist to that 4.7% dividend yield. AAR.UN stocks are quite cheap too. I hope to reproduce with AAR.UN the same thing I did with Savaria Corporation (SIS). I bought SIS when it was really cheap and the gains today are quite impressive. I hope to be on another success story with AAR.UN. 

With this newest investment, my dividend income is now at $7 799.61, or $649.97 per month, which almost cover my too high rent.

Is Pure Industrial Real Estate Trust (AAR.UN) my newest heaven?

I am not so active on my blog these days for a really good reason: I am searching for a new place to live and its really not easy. Montreal is full of cheap dirty rabbit holes. I had been living in and off where I am currently staying for probably 10 years or so. And I didn't got back in the apartment searching deal ever since. And its quite a shock. All this is just leaving me with a so good excuse to finally leave Quebec province for good. I only wish. This is what you get for not studying enough and for not choosing a lucrative career: you get stuck in situation and life hit hard sometimes. Warren Buffett is all wrong when he say to young people to do and study what they like. Its a really bad advise and its too easy going. Warren Buffett was born with a silver spoon in his mouth. I can tell you what all the cold hard true about life because I wasn't born, like Warren Buffett, with a silver spoon in my mouth. In my case, the silver spoon switch side to go on some mysterious place.

This doesn't change anything on the fact that Warren Buffett evolve in his own little privileged world. The real life, you get to experience it when you are poor, have no one to rely on, and have to live and work in a place you really dislike... Hello story of my life!

Its always in moment of extreme vulnerability with my mouth full of deep shit that I turn to be a quick and smart ass. I am a lazy girl. I need electro chocs to have things work out. Its when I am hurt that I am at my best. And tonight is so not an exception. This is an evening to be remember of.

All this to say, I just found a new investment. Usually, it never go this quick. But I am now in love investors. My newest crush is name Pure Industrial Real Estate Trust (AAR.UN). A very top industrial REIT. Not expensive at all, nice yield, nice chart. Kind of fit me well. Pure Industrial Real Estate Trust (AAR.UN) will look good in my TFSA portfolio. I don't know if you have notice, but I like industrial stocks.

I find Pure Industrial Real Estate Trust (AAR.UN) on Stockopedia, just like I did for MRG.UN and PLC. I need something good to push it all up.

Saying a heartbreaking good bye to Westshore Terminals Invest Corp (WTE)

No real surprise, Emmanuel Marcon won the elections in France, just like I expected it to be, I told you so remember? French of France are so full of what you know what, its unbelievable. Whenever they are unhappy with their leading government, they use the Front National only to spice up things, an excuse, because they know there will always be that second run. In a way, their electoral system work against them, but its just they are not smart enough to realize it. While playing their dangerous nasty game, they are giving more voices to the Front National. Its so disgusting. And what is really more disgusting is to see all of those French of France idiots living in Canada like if this would be their home, taking advantage of our rich economy and stealing jobs belonging to Canadians. That's what French are only good at.

I like investing in stocks because its something I can do all alone, without having no one to deal with and interfere other than my own sexy self. And what I really like even more is to feel my control over my investments. I never doubt of my judgement, its my best weapon against everything that life decide to throw at me. Not that I couldn't do better, but most of the time, I can say, I couldn't do better. Its the reason why I am somewhat successful in the investing game. Because I can make decisions and I always try to defend my best interests.

What matter to me are my investments. And sometimes, decision had to be made, even if they are not happy ones. Its with somewhat sadness that today I decided to sell an investment that I had for many many years now: Westshore Terminals Invest Corp (WTE). WTE stock just continue to lose and lose and lose... I was watching, but at a point, this wasn't working for me anymore. So I sell today, and I was able to make a profit of 6.50%, $280.28. I got off late, but I was hoping to see WTE rebounce, but it didn't. Smart girls do what they have to do. I am really not in position to lose any money right now.

This sell move of WTE left me with a a couple thousands to invest. Its just a matter of making another good investment move to make even more money this time. I just don't know if you are ready for that yet, but I am.

Jean-François Tardif Premium Brands Holdings Corporation (PBH) is seriously in the profit zone

I am quite intrigue because according to my estimate, my net worth could currently be of $223 744.86. I might try to publish a quick update today to find out. The more gains I can make, the better I will be. A 50k seemed out of reach when I had just poor little money, a 100k was nice and surprising - just a confirmation that I was actually doing the right thing most of the time, a 150k quite enjoyable and real confirmation that I just needed to continue to invest more in stocks,... but a $200 000... now we are talking seriously. Whatever comes out after that will just be some candy love, but come on in whenever you like sexy gains, I am ready to take it all.

I can see myself hitting on the 250k very easily this year, especially if Emmanuel Macron win the election in France today. Marine Le Pen would be a too sharp and brutal leader, and I am really praying that French will use of what they have left as good judgement and vote for Macron. In France, Macron had received bad press for coming from Hollande government and his banker background. But its not bad at all from my perspective. At least, Macron had experience inside a leading government who had power and Le Pen never had a very active leading role inside an active government. Of course not, because so far in France history, French never elected the Front National.

And I don't understand why being a banker is a bad thing. Capitalist is a good thing. France need a strong leader to go back in track and create more opportunities for its population. Macron actually have good ideas for youth who are self-employed. I read about it and find the ideas proposed quite interesting. If Le Pen win, just be ready for a bad opening tomorrow, stock markets will probably all be down worldwide. I base myself on the fact that when Macron won the first run, markets went all up. For now, all we can do is pray and wait for the results. 

During that time, may people in Quebec and New Brunswick and maybe in other provinces too are facing major flooding. Its quite sad to see beautiful homes being ruined by water. However its not a surprise. When I went home in New Brunswick this Easter, I was shocked to see how much snow there was still left. And it result in flooding of course. They say its because the winter began too late and we had major snow late in the winter too. Nothing to help. Climatic changes could also be to blame. At least no one if affected at home. I couldn't live with myself being in Montreal while family facing flood in New Brunswick. It would be just too awful.

I am happy of my very latest investment in Veresen Inc. (VSN) as it gain 1.21% inside my non-registered portfolio. Some other stocks I hold had been slowed to show off some gains, but gains finally begin to show off, stop being so shy angel stocks:

Richards Packaging Income Fund (RPI.UN): 13.15%
Open Text Corporation (OTEXT): 9.56%

Just like expected, ACO.Y is a bit rocky. Anyhow, for a reason or another, I am very amuse by the fact that wake up each day just to make her business profitable not for her, but all for me.

GO! See sometimes, what stocks need is just a really good cheer up and enthusiasm.

Among my greatest achiever of all time - just try not to fail from your chair ok - we find:

FIRST POSITION: Premium Brands Holdings Corporation (PBH): +372.14%

I am impress, but those number had been in for so long now that they leave me somewhat indifferent. at least now you have an idea of what good profits actually look like. If you are looking to build a portfolio, I think those stocks could be good picks and mix to start on.

Welcome back in my non-registered portfolio Veresen Inc. (VSN)!

The TSX closed with no special direction, but today was quite exciting. A few years ago, back in 2012 exactly, I had welcomed Veresen Inc. (VSN) in my portfolio. Just 2 years later, I was selling of VSN. From my perspective, VSN wasn't jumping enough in profit. But now in 2017, things are completely different. A stock that had in my portfolio for a very long time now, Pembina Pipeline Corporation (PPL), had announced today that they will acquired Veresen Inc. I find it very great and I got all excited by the news so I used up some margin money and bought some VSN shares at $18.18.

A girl do what she needs to do! Go go go VSN. PLEASE EXPLODE (in gains, of course). Make me happy all the way.

Just like PPL, Methanex Corporation (MX) is another stock that I had been holding to for a very very long time. I had made great gains on that single stock and its one of my greatest proud because I came with it. This wasn't a Derek Foster, Susan Brunner or Jean-François Tardif stock. Methanex Corporation (MX) was MY very own stock pick. Lately, MX announced an increased of its dividend of 9%. It was about time honey! I had been waiting for dividend increased of MX like FOREVER. 

A girl must sometimes used of her patience.

With all of those great news, my dividend income is now set for a $7 617.51 annually and as always, its exclude the dividend earn inside my RRSP portfolio.

Its good to have some great news because lately, I had worried a lot. Donald Trump is driving me crazy these days. Honey moon is over! Is he really going to cancel NAFTA? This is having a hard effect on my beautiful TSX - just at the moment where this lady is at the top of the top of her game, popping up the 200k net worth like if the TSX would be all mine. Donald Trump needs to calm down a bit.

During that time, Savaria Corporation (SIS) had been on a trade halt today. Imagine, SIS, is blockbusting all by acquiring a US company that I never heard about: Span-America Medical Systems, Inc. And all that for $80.2 million baby, and those dollars are in US! WOW. Just watch Savaria Corporation (SIS) kicking some ass!

A girl must known her stocks because its her best assets, not her ass.
