Donald Trump is rocking the Congress and Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS) is increasing its dividend distribution

Right now, the TSX is playing games with my heart. Just like if I didn't already eat enough dust. The stock market is not a place for little girls. I cannot make money if the TSX is not all high up. Its the way it is. Each time the TSX lose points, my 200k net worth is fading away. My non-registered portfolio is now down to $149 332.92. I have left $13 790.97 on my margin. Lower than 13k is a critical point. No worries, all my eyes are on him, just like if my margin would be a very nice looking Cuban man. So I am watching this very very closely. The only way to go through is to remember that one day in life, I was on top of everything. Right here.

While waiting for my great returns to come back, I am currently watching and listening to Donald Trump addressing the Congress. And so far, Donald Trump is making me proud. Its an interesting talked and he introduced the story of American citizens in his speech. His words are clear, make all good common sense. Its being said that Donald Trump finally found his voice and that this might be the best speech of his political career - so far. I didn't catch his wife in the audience - she had missed something.

Ivanka Trump is there wearing a pink dress, probably of her brand, sitting right next to a woman who lost her husband at war. I think Ivanka Trump husband is sitting at her left. Trump is giving the speech the US nation was is need of. Tomorrow, I am pretty sure that stock markets a little bit around the world probably going to go up, just like I need it to be so I can be successful and really beat it up one more time. I am getting too use to be on top of my game like most of the time and arrogance has become my new vice. So back off ok.

Recently, Royal Bank of Canada (RY) and Canadian Imperial Bank Of Commerce (CM) decided to increase their dividend. And now, BNS is following the dancers. Let's go, make me rich.

Saying hello to a $7 000 annual dividend income

The TSX was on it way to make me on top of my princess game - once again - and happily hit on the 16 000 points for the first time in history. But I guess it was just too much too soon. The TSX pulled off back and closed this past Friday session at 15 533.47 points. My non-registered portfolio closed at $149 466.72 and my TFSA at $60 382.61. At this time, I estimate my net worth to be around 187k. Still solid like a rock and beautiful as gold, or if you prefer, God.

The pot of gold is not on the $190 000 right now, however, its now official, my annual dividend income reached the 7k: $7 003.86. This exclude the dividend income coming from the RRSP. This is happening because my non-registered and TFSA portfolio are set up on DRIP. And also, fact that Canadian Imperial Bank Of Commerce (CM) and Royal Bank of Canada (RY) announced dividend increase recently also help my cause.

One of this past Friday top gainer on the TSX catch my attention: Colliers International Inc (CIGI). It will be difficult to ever beat up my last investment, Toromont Industries Ltd (TIH), but I like to seek for other investments. Even after finding TIH. And that being for many reasons. One of the reason is that ever since I had been investing in stocks, I always been searching for new stocks to invest in. It became something very usual overtime. But the more time pass by, the more difficult the task had become. Its also clear to me that the search for THE stock need to continue, rather it is on the US or Canadian market. The best that have the stock market cannot resume itself to what I already know. 

Too bad for the little Quebeckers. Fact that I am holding Toromont Industries Ltd in my non-registered and RRSP portfolio make me the greatest investor on earth. Its really that simple.

TSX can lose all the points it want, arrogance is here to remain.

Again this year, I won't invest in my RRSP portfolio

Actually, this is partly true. I contribute to my RRSP, but only at a very low level through my bi-weekly pay. I cannot simply rely on that for my retirement. But l like always, I learn a long time ago to take care of business myself. Especially since Jean-François Tardif seriously began to piss me off with his damn JFT Strategies Fund (JFS.UN) just going no where. Nice man, good heart, good looking, but no fun profit! And no nice dividend! So when a man doesn't give me what I want, I stay away. Love you but bye bye bye Jean-François Tardif. I am going to get rich all by myself, just like it was expecting to be.

RRSP is good - but only if you are rich. Like real rich. Personally, I don't like RRSP and I really regret having invested in RRSP when I was "younger". Why? Well, if I would had made those investments inside a non-registered account, I could touched the dividend money. Currently, my dividend income is of $6 995.66 (non-registered and TFSA portfolio dividend). Now, imagine what could be that income if my RRSP stocks would be invested inside my non-registered portfolio. Like so frustrating! I don't care of what my needs will be when I will be old and gray. I want to have all the cash possible and ENJOY it NOW. Tomorrow is another day that I don't necessarily care about.

You are reading the Dividend Girl Blog, its not here that you'll read about seriously good stock review. My investing style is one of a voodoo princess. It watch catch my attention and my choices are base mostly on impressions and feelings. And of course, I check if the chart is all the way up, if the stock exceed the value of the before 2008 stock crash, the dividend yield is not too excessive, a good stock history, mostly something that been around for a couple of years. I made mistakes among the way, my portfolio is not perfect. If you are getting tired of the voodoo method, there's other option. Stockopedia is quite interesting. And for real stock reviews, serious ones, Susan Brunner has what you need! Check out her latest post, quite interesting. After reading, you'll have all the buzz needed to save all the cash in the world to invest and make your way to thousands and thousands in net worth. Very dangerous post.

Getting ready for my first 200k net worth

When I saw Friday that my non-registered portfolio was popping up to the $152 000... I knew something special was going on. I was hoping to finally be sitting on the $190 000 net worth. So I update my portfolio as quickly as possible to find out and it when I discovered that I was so almost sitting on a 190k net worth.... almost. At $188 996.88, its now reality, the 190k net worth is just around the corner. If I can just make other great discoveries like my newest Toromont Industries Ltd (TIH), it won't be long - unless something catastrophic happen on the stock markets.

My feelings toward TIH is the same I got years ago when I invested in my precious Premium Brands Holdings Corporation (PBH). I invested about 5k in PBH years ago and today, on date of February 19, the investment worth more than $32 000. I would like to invest another 1 pr 2 thousands in TIH, sit on the investment like a sexy hen and wait for capital gain to come in. No more work is needed, just the right stock pick, that's all.  

So far, 2017 announced itself as being THE year for my first $200 000 net worth. It wasn't that long ago that I reached $100 000 in net worth. It was actually in January 2014. We'll see if I can make $100 000 every 3 years or so. 

I read somewhere that some illegal immigrates had reached out New Brunswick, only 3 for now. But even with 3, the Maine-New Brunswick border is only decorated by very small cities and I couldn't help thinking that policemen in New Brunswick might just don't know what to do if they catch illegal immigrates crossing the border. Its quite problematic, even if its only 3 immigrates. Where are they going to put these 3 people? We have enough to deal with in New Brunswick including poverty that is present. We are really not arm to welcome illegal immigrates. Like not at all. And I don't even feel compassion for those immigrates invading New Brunswick. Its just not their place to be. New Brunswick is a too poor province to welcome refugees. There's many people who are in great needs and we should not spend one single penny for those people. Rich or poor, I am against the principle and I find it totally disgusting.

The newest date to be remember: February 16, 2017

The TSX set a new record high today, closing the session at a very comfortable 15 864.17 points, and making me at the same time richer than I never been before. Its quite shocking to see the TSX battling up records like that bang bang bang. And beating up the mark of 15 800 points is quite something. Its actually unbelievable. Why is the TSX suddenly going all the way up like that? Anyway, as you know, I stop trying to understand it all a very long time ago. Someone very famous, very rich (and very old too!!) once said that you should only invest in stocks that you understand. I so don't agree with this line of thinking. Not at all.

Investing in stock can be quite intimidating, but nothing should stop anyone to invest in stocks. If I would had wait to actually understand the stock market, understand how the system work, what it is, understand the stocks I invest in, I still wouldn't be investing because its all too complicated stuff and the only thing I am into is making money. I don't  So once I kind of get the picture, I jumped it. No need to know anything, the only thing required is a great taste for danger, adventure, and of course, MONEY. Remember, its all about capitalism. I want a slice of the cake on my side when I sleep at night.



Right now everything is so on the high, but can the TSX jump back very sharply too? Oh yes it can! But I don't worry too much about that. Stock market around the world goes up and down all the time, that's what they do. But in the meantime, give me a break, I am richer than I ever been before and I suspect to be sitting on a net worth of $188 000. My non-registered portfolio is at its highest, sexy as ever, standing at a strong $151 968.72 and my TFSA portfolio is enjoying itself at $59 224.55.

What can be consider as one my major achievements of the past couple years, my latest investment in Toromont Industries Ltd (TIH), is not a joke. Since February 9, TIH had grow by 2.22% in my now famous non-registered portfolio. So far in 2017, I invested $2 668.20 inside my TFSA. Since I have contribution room left, I am thinking about taking my Toromont Industries Ltd (TIH) stocks and proceed with a contribution in kind to my TFSA with TIH. 

Knowing that Toromont Industries Ltd (TIH) gained 2.22% since only February 9 and especially knowing that TIH shares have outperformed the S&P TSX by 31.22% during the last year, proceeding with a contribution in kind on that stock is a very good move.

Why am I so smart?

Sunday, February 12, 2017

A date to remember: February 10, 2017

The TSX closed last Friday session by popping up the 15 700 points! February 10, 2017 was  an historical date. The TSX closed at its highest ever, at exactly 15 736.64 points. And during that time, my non-registered portfolio closed the session exceeding 150k. It look like the TSX could soon welcome the 16 000 points. 

A good TSX in shape always bring easy money for investors. I am curious to see how the market will react to Justin Trudeau little trip in Washington. So far, I am not very impress by the announcements made. Trump want to discuss about the place of women at work. I mean really? Its not like we are a third world country in Canada. Women have a place at work. There's nothing much that need to be debate in regard of that topic. I am a single woman at work and I mean, I don't think Canadian women suffer at work or are facing major discrimination. Anyway, that's a stupid topic to talk about when there's so much more that need to be cover. ???

Trump should think about building a wall to protect the USA-Canada border because right now, there's some illegal immigrant coming from the US that are entering Canada and ask for the refugee status. Those immigrants are taking time, energy and money out of our pockets. That is something that need to be address to Donald Trump. Its only his fault if those illegal are coming to Canada. And while they are here, they have to stay somewhere, eat 3 meals a day, need to get proper clothes, and, even worst, get medical cares. And who pay for those immigrants? 

My tax money goes for that.

Welcome in my RRSP and non-registered portfolio Toromont Industries Ltd (TIH)!

Its too bad, but I couldn't resist! I had to invest in Toromont Industries Ltd (TIH) and I did. I am currently under the impression that TIH is THE HOT STOCK that was missing from my portfolio for too long now. Now, only now, my investment portfolio is a perfect, but certainly complex, piece of work. You have to look at it like a very big tree And I have the very strong feeling that I did what was for the best. Its true that every time I buy a stock, I am always confident about my move. But this time, its a different story. I am going to make a lot of money with this investment. Who live will see.

Fact is, Toromont Industries Ltd (TIH) is not a well-known stock. Its a good thing that I find out about this stock because from now on, TIH is from my portfolio and in result, the world wild Web will get a taste of what real Canadian quality stocks is all about. I didn't find any reviews of Toromont Industries Ltd (TIH) and no financial blogger - expect me because I am the very best of course - wrote about this stock or even mention it! Its a real shame.

On Stockopedia, Toromont Industries Ltd (TIH) has now a StockRank of 91. Finally at least, TIH now appear in one single Stockopedia screen - at least. Toromont Industries Ltd (TIH) is currently making its debut on the 52 Week High Momentum Screen. Great! Another fabulous that I hold, but this time in my TFSA portfolio, is in the same screen, its: Morguard North American Residential Real Estate Investment Trust (MRG.UN). So far, my capital gain on MRG.UN exceed the $200, and that capital gain doesn't include the dividend earned so far on the stock.

I was checking on my banking account and I currently almost have 2k in there. And I taught wow, looking good! Why I don't try to keep the money in there for once? I will try to keep as much money possible in there. Fresh fun cash have diamonds value. But during that time, I am getting fatter on my margin.

As you may doubt, I had invested in Toromont Industries Ltd (TIH) inside my non-registered portfolio by using magic margin money. As for my RRSP investment in TIH - its a small investment made by using dividend left-over earned inside my RRSP.



GO go goooooooo!

Oh Toromont Industries Ltd (TIH), wonderful, beautiful stock

Toromont Industries Ltd (TIH) is THE investment I had been missing in my portfolio. In reason of this new beautiful, the plan of setting up a small emergency fund is about to go straight to the garbage! YEAH. I hate emergency funds. I have no real desire to build one. Living paycheck per paycheque is good enough for me. Emergency fund is against my nature. I cannot fight the in deep need of investing, especially now. But what's the rush to invest in TIH now? The rush is MONEY.

According to the Globe and Mail, last year, Toromont Industries Ltd (TIH) outperformed the S&P TSX by 32.78% during the last year. I believe that TIH is on the road to similar extraordinary results for 2017. The only way to benefit from TIH is to invest in some TIH stocks - and that cannot wait. It need to be done NOW.

I would like to invest a 2k in TIH inside my TFSA since I have contribution left.

Quebec puppets upset for Washington Post article by J.J. McCullough

Quebeckers are quite funny people. A good article in regard to recent terrorist attack that happen in Quebec City was published in the Washington Post. Whenever someone tell to Quebeckers right in their face who they truly are, the reaction is immediate. They always react like a bunch of clowns. Quebeckers massively comment the articles denying all relevant facts. They are Quebeckers are just not smart enough to accept the true. And personally, I can assure you that the article published by J.J. McCullough is accurate and is a good portrait of Quebec province. 

As a "distinct" society, Quebeckers have problem to deal with who they are. But the true had now been exposed to the world. Quebec is well known for being a corrupted province with extremely bad leadership in field of education, health care and provincial administration. That lack of education is the cause of many diseases in Quebec province. I previously wrote that when it come to terrorist attacks that happen in Canada had been committed by Quebeckers, and that it wasn't surprising. Well, it happen that J.J. McCullough also talked about that in his article. In many ways, Quebeckers themselves are much more dangerous for our country than Muslims. However, for many reasons, I am against Muslims.

I previously wrote on this very good blog that I am against Muslim and I explain why. This is not racist. I am expressing the voice of common sense. New Brunswick may be a poorer province, but we don't let our children go to school in buildings that are about collapse. We don't let our seniors stay in their shit all night and they get to have more than just one bath a week. We can stay proud despite our problems because we know who we are and we don't let bad things happen to our people. We are not hypocrite like those Quebeckers. Forget about all my money, being a New Brunswicker is what I am most proud of in my life.

Get to know your enemies.

My newest everything is: Toromont Industries Ltd (TIH)

The weather is getting bad in Montreal, so I decided to go straight home after work. I can only miss Cayo Coco beaches. And most of all, I am missing the SUN. And Cuban guys. There's just something irresistible about those Cuban men, just so very hot. I have a thing or two for everything that is Spanish. Anyway, I am surviving. And right now, I finally catch on a stock of interest! Hourra!

Be happy for me.

Excuse me, but I can live without Cuba, without its fabulous, but I cannot make it too long without having any investment dreams. When it come to make money out of the stock market, I hit it on the easiest way possible. Forget about essays or fooling around trying to come with a very very complex strategy that will just blow your mind. I don't care. I have nothing of that matter to share or to prove. I want straight to the point easy investment moves ONLY.

So here it is, come and meet my newest extraordinary finding, a gem in the jungle that is out there: Toromont Industries Ltd (TIH). It wasn't hard to hit on TIH, especially today, since the title closed today session at fabulous 5.2% gain. Once again, I had it easy but it was just a matter of good timing, I needed to be online and check out my portfolio tonight if not, there would had been no TIH finding. I did my duty and here come my reward. Thank you my Lord.

Toromont Industries Ltd (TIH) basically answer to all of my criteria. It has a rocking chart since its inspection, its a dividend payer stock, its a stock that had increased its dividend over the years, its a company that been around for many years and that had survived the 2008 stock crash and now exceed the value of the before 2008 crash.... I cannot dream of having more in the same stock. Sure, TIH dividend yield is low, but its the only negative thing. And never forget: don't focus on big dividend yield, focus on quality, its where you'll find your richness and you'll be happy.

Its not easy to find such quality stock but I am very happy that I did. Strangely, TIH doesn't appear in any of Stockopedia screens. Its one of the reason why I didn't know about TIH until now. I keep scrolling and scrolling and going on to all stocks featuring in Stockopedia screens on and on and on... At a point, I mean, I didn't find my next everything. There's something wrong about Stockopedia because I am really sure that TIH should had feature in some of Stockopedia screens. To play only in my favor, Stockopedia StockRank of TIH is 90, which is very good I guess. But don't ask me, I know nothing and I am careless.

It seem like a very very lucky girl next door had finally hit on her next everything. TIH be ready, you are all MINE.

I have a brand new credit card: CIBC Dividend Visa Infinite Card

Its now been a week since I left behind Cayo Coco sun, nice sweat beaches, and my favorite drinks: pina colada, mojito, margarita, Spanish coffees and not to forget good looking Cuban guys. I am slowly surviving, but my whole body is screaming its hate of winter by giving really bad dry skin. As for alcohol, I don't have problem to stop drinking overnight, even if I am quite something on vacation. Just stay tune for my review of Melia Jardines Del Rey, which I should post soon.
My newest saving goal could give me a break from my eternal search for good investments, but I am quickly seeking for stocks on Stockopedia anyway and its fun as always. Nothing new catch my attention so far. I guess its because my portfolio is pretty much at the best I could possibly pushed it. Right now, I am only praying for relatively stable stock market that will keep me away from any in deep problems.

Currently, my non-registered portfolio is at $148 026.17 and my TFSA portfolio is at $57 713.66. Great results, but party will be on when my non-registered will be at 150k and my TFSA at 60k. 

A few days before leaving for Cayo Coco at the Melia Jardines Del Rey, I checked on a few credit cards that I wanted to bring with me just in case of emergencies. I have a credit line with RBC Royal Bank and I wanted my RBC debit card to be link to the credit line so I could withdraw money in case of need but guess what, that wasn't possible with RBC Royal Bank. I mean, that's stupid! RBC missed an opportunity to make money on my back!!! What kind of bank is that???

Anyway, its not the first time that I am getting pushed away by RBC. Don't want of me? No worries boys, I will go somewhere else! 

But no worries, I quickly turned around and look over with CIBC. What a better service! CIBC offer to treat me like the princess that I really am and increased my credit card limit - YEAH - and link the credit line to my debit card - thank you CIBC. My credit line needed to be reactivated because I never used it. It took 24 hours before getting reactivated. And just to push over the love a bit more, CIBC gave me the CIBC Dividend Visa Infinite Card without any fees, at least for one year. 

The CIBC Dividend Visa Infinite Card is interesting. It gave away a nice cash back of 4% on groceries, 2% cash back on Tim Hortons and TELUS purchases and 1% cash back on everything else. With my spending habits, I am expecting to cash back around $350 annually if not a bit more.

Thank you CIBC.

On the road to financial success with Open Text Corporation (OTC)

I may be on a starvation mode, desperately trying to build up a small emergency fund, but no matter what, I have all eyes on the stock market and my stock portfolio. And currently, Open Text Corporation (OTC) have all my attention. I invested in OTC back in September 2016. I wasn't able to hit on very good profit with OTC right away. Sometimes, patience is key.

I wrote before on the fact that I really like stock split. The general rule - but its not always the case - is when a stock split, the stock generally gain in value. Open Text Corporation (OTC) split had refreshed and regenerate the spirit of the stock. OTC finally hit on a + value and that mean more cash for me.

Lately, Saputo Inc. (SAP) is also in my radar. I like SAP because its dairy activities are diversified within multiple companies and also in different countries, Argentina and Australia, and not to forget here in Canada. Its just a matter of time before SAP get it hands on the missing Australia's Warrnambool Cheese and Butter shares. Its been a tough road but here again, patience is key. And again, plenty of cash for your favorite blogger.

Working at building a boring, but so needed, emergency fund

A cash portfolio is what I have in mind these days. I am not a fan of "emergency fund", its why I am using the term "cash portfolio". Why should you put away some cash without investing it??? Well, because life is all about money. It take money to pay for rent and everything else right. In the past recent years, I never been able to actually build a a decent "emergency fund". I am 100% invested and I never been ashamed of it. I love to invest, I like the stock market. My obsession is always to find a new sexy stock to invest in. I want my money to work for me. All good, all good. I have a net work of now close to $190 000 and I came to the conclusion that time had come for me to put some cash aside.

Its hilarious in a way, to have a 190k net worth, but nothing in cash. Its actually not hilarious, its the demonstration of my disease, of my investing addiction. I unfortunately don't suffer from stock market anxiety in my everyday life. I can easily go for a week without any access to my broker account and stock market news and it don't hurt my spirit. I am in for the wild ride if you see what I mean. And you'll be all surprise to learn that I actually begin to build up a boring cash emergency fund. Luckily, not being a sexy momma is helping because I have no one to care of except my own self. I had set up my minimum monthly cash need to $1 250.

A decent emergency fund should include the minimum required to live on for 6 to 12 months. And actually, the more cash you have, the better you are. Cash is very important. And the term "cash portfolio" should remain in your mind. Because cash is needed in any portfolio, including mine - and especially mine.

Ok, so $1 250 for 6 months = what, you mean I need to put $7 500 in cash OUTSIDE the stock market???



I am a bit a cheater but I am a good cheater because I always tell my favorite readers. 

Don't forget my dividend income! (Because there's no way I can possibly keep $7 500 out of the market). Currently, my annual dividend income is of $6 932.32, a rough equivalent of $577 per month.

This lead to our conclusion:
$7 500 - ($577 x 6) = $4 038

To build a 6 months emergency fund, I need to put away, far way out of reach, $4 038 in my banking account.

See, smart girls are full of tricks.

 I will be done building the stupid emergency fund at the of March (of this year of course). I JUST CAN'T WAIT.

Thank you
