Saying thank you and goodbye to AltaGas Ltd (ALA)

I ask for it, I pray for it, and I got what I wanted. My TSX is back in the 15 000 points.And now, I want my old 16 000 points back! PLEASE! (We'll see tomorrow if I am still getting lucky on my stock market wishes).
This morning, AltaGas Ltd (ALA) wasn't doing better, and I decided to sell, no regrets. I am ready to move on. Now, the only question remaining is in what I am going to invest that money in. Should I really be investing again in Fortis Inc. (FTS)? I always like to get something for my portfolio. For me, its like almost equivalent in term of love as shopping for something expensive, live a diamond ring or something like that. I have no diamond rings on my fingers, but I do have the best of the best stocks in my really awesome portfolio. And just saying, my non-registered portfolio closed today session at a great $172 203.10, my TFSA portfolio at $75 480.85, nd my RRSP, stocks only, at $37 774.41.

No new investment plans for the moment.

No more juicy dividend for AltaGas Ltd (ALA)

Finally, the TSX gain closed to 200 points, no too bad. Those gains had a positive effect on my investment. My non-registered portfolio closed today session at $171 122.60, my TFSA portfolio at $75 067.72, and my RRSP, at $37 564.45. Aecon Group Inc. (ARE) continues its road to glory with interesting gains. It took some time for ARE to catch up, but Ottawa didn't help the cause by rejecting ARE acquisition by a Chinese state-owned company. I like this kind of industrial stocks. I had great success with my investments in Toromont Industries Ltd (TIH) and WSP Global Inc. (WSP). It really fit me well and looks good on me. Thank you for the free cash TIH and WSP.

Wow wow wow.

Bad news for AltaGas Ltd (ALA) today, it will no longer pay a dividend and is kind in big restructuration process. I lived something similar in the early days when I was holding to New Flyer Industries Inc. (NFI). But NFI turns out just right and bring me a lot of $$$. Will it be the same story success this time for AltaGas Ltd (ALA)? Unfortunately, I don't think so. Natural gas doesn't seem to be a profitable sector for the long run. I got stuck with EnCana Corporation (ECA) in my RRSP portfolio and this stock has a real problem to go back to its old high value.

I would like my readers to stay away from natural gas stocks like ALA, and ECA. There are so many great stocks on the TSX, you can certainly leave behind those two little losers. Make mommy proud.

Anyhow, I have those two little losers in my portfolio, but I am certainly not a loser. I am looking forward to sell my ALA stocks and reinvest the money. I was thinking about investing in TD stocks, since the stock is trading low right now. I don't have any problem with selling stocks from time to time, when I have my reasons. Its always a personal choice, but the choice is all yours to take.

The stock market is a place of complete liberty. No one can restraint your orders, you are free to buy and sell whatever you want, whenever you want, no need to argue with anyone and its what I like about it. I don't like to waste my time, I don't like working in a "team", I hate having to deal every day with colleagues, I hate being gentle and polite. So the TSX is my place to do everything I want and trust me, I am taking over all the place. Me and that bitch, it's for life. That's why I have this crazy awesome portfolio.

In other words, I am really awesome.

Go go go TSX you can make it to the 15 000 points! PLEASE!

Next investment please, more Fortis Inc. (FTS)

What a crazy day for the TSX! The morning started with great gains, we were going to reach back the 15 000 points at least, but the TSX decided to moved in the wrong direction to close the day on a very bad 14 721.75 points, losing -1.12%! OH no! My non-registered portfolio closed today session at $169 596.06, my TFSA portfolio at $74 458.27, and my RRSP portfolio (stocks only like usual), at $37 198.83. While the TSX was losing 166 points, Aecon Group Inc. (ARE) is up to work and continue its road to glory. Goodfood Market Corp. (FOOD) is doing alright, under the circumstances.

While the TSX is experiencing so much volatility, is really important to yes, take advantage of this volatility to invest in stocks that are currently trading at a bargain price. Its now more important than ever to be extremely selective. Its not time to invest in pot stocks or anything naughtier, so you won't see me investing in anything really exotic. I had been investing in stocks for over 10 years now but the last couple days had been strange on the TSX. I don't remember seeing a TSX so volatile. Normally, big drop bring in good gain, in a relatively short period of time. I really don't remember seeing such volatility over the TSX and it doesn't feel like its normal. I am not going to forget with this month of October 2018 anytime soon.

Anyway, if you are looking to watch something to bright on your spirit, I really suggest that you watch Broad City on CraveTV, its crazy fun and absolutely hilarious!!! I am almost done watching the 4th season. Broad City takes place in New York, its really good, but its American. On the other hands, the Goop garbage of Gwyneth Paltrow is planning to come to Canada? We certainly don't need that shit in our amazing country. Gwyneth Paltrow is like Melania Trump while visiting Africa, an intrudor, an unwanted one.

I think I am going to invest in FTS. I just don't have no other ideas for now, its my best pick.

Welcome again, Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS) in my non-registered portfolio!

My non-registered portfolio closed this past Friday session at $171 515.28, but that's only because I invest in a few shares of Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS). The TSX had closed at its lowest level since November 2016, so I had to invest in a high-quality stock that would be push over the edge once the TSX decided to move back in the old 16 000 points. I am quite happy with the new investment in BNShappens because I purchased my new stocks at $69.14. My TFSA portfolio closed the session at $74 928.20, and my RRSP, stocks only, at $37 436.69.

BNS was among the first stocks I ever own, so it was just a natural move to invest once again in this one, especially now that it trades at a low price. I am looking forward to investing in other good quality stocks like BNS who are trading at a good price right now. I would like to invest again in Fortis Inc. (FTS). Fortis is also a stock that is from my non-registered portfolio since the early beginnings. I am looking for good quality stocks, reliable dividend and that are trading at a lower than usual price. Fortis Inc. (FTS) is a real easy stock to hold inside a portfolio. FTS is really reliable. And just recently, Fortis increased its dividend distribution. Another idea for investment on the low: Savaria Corporation (SIS). Other ideas: PLC, MX - but MX doesn't pay much in term of dividend. When you get hungry, hit on dividend stocks.

It's not pleasant to be on downslide market, but this is exactly how I started investing in stocks back in 2008 and its really how I had been able to create value over time. Its true that I am currently not at my best, but sooner or later, the TSX will be back in the 16 000 points and when it happen, this bitch will be back right on top, and just watch me hit on the not the 300k, but 400k net worth, ok? You need to pack the love at the right place.

This past Friday session, Aecon Group Inc. (ARE) gains over 11%, which is really good. I think that ARE may be on the right track for more great results. Fact is, there's alwyas great things going on for the TSX. Its your appreciation of the great TSX that will pay on your favor for the long run, and nothing else.

The TSX is under the 15 000 points

Its not fun to see the TSX going under the so valuable mark of 15 000 points. And its doing so for a mix of reason, economy going to well, pot stocks drooping in value, interest rate being hike in the US and now, in Canada... The economy is just going too well, and in result, central bank increase their interest rates, but markets don't like it. Its quite strange, I think the first time ever that I am going through a stock crash because the economy is doing too well. Anyway, it has bad consequences for the stock markets all around the world. Problems between US and China are not helping either.

Anyhow, for now, I am doing ok. My non-registered portfolio closed today session at $170 033.38, my TFSA portfolio at $75 295.72, and RRSP portfolio at $37 632.75. I had lost in value, but my dividend income remain the same. Got to focus on the bright side. I am still on profit with many of my stocks, and its the case of the vast majority of my stocks. If you are in for the long run, focus exactly on that, the long run. Its not the moment to sell any of your stocks. Its not pleasant to see your assets going down, but its part of the game.

2018 was supposed to be my year of glory, the year when I was going to hit on the $300 000 magic net worth. During that time, if you want to get a good laugh, CIBC is offering me a credit card transfer at 1% interest and BMO Mastercard wants to increase my credit limit and want me to proceed with a credit card transfer at 0%. I accept the offer of BMO to increase my credit card limit. BMO Bank of Montreal and CIBC (but I like CIBC anyway) are real gangsters who are trying to make more money on the back of your really precious Dividend Girl.

This is not a fun moment, but now is the perfect time to focus on your budget, see where you can save money, cut your spending and invest all that good money over the TSX to make sure my baby hit on back the 16 000 points. But let's begin with a 15 000 points please.

WesternOne Inc. (WEQ) is making a little comeback

Things are rough and tough on the TSX right now, and its pretty much the same thing for other stock markets across the world. Basically, things are getting too well, interest rate increase in the US, + many other things going on, and my baby TSX cannot handle it, but no worries,I am here and I will shake her up.

My non-registered portfolio closed today session at $174 244.91, my TFSA portfolio at $76 608.59, my RRSP portfolio at $38 123.22. WEQ recently makes some nice gains. WesternOne Inc. (WEQ) is about to be acquired by United Rentals of Canada. Its a good thing for WEQ shareholders like myself, it may lead to some more interesting gain, who knows.

Earlier this month, Fortis Inc. (FTS) announced an increase in its dividend distribution. And recently, it was the turned of TFI International Inc. (TFII) to increase its dividend. Following what, my dividend income is now at $8 660.09 (excluding RRSP distribution), which is quite nice.

We are expecting snow this Saturday in Montreal, so I decided to buy a new winter coat at La Baie. Any dividend penny is welcome.

Be a chart reader on Stockopedia and become an investor Godness like someone I know

My non-registered portfolio closed this past Friday session at $176 163.10, my TFSA portfolio at $77 024.34, and my RRSP - stocks only - at $38 093.44. Things are getting better. Its looking like Premium Brands Holdings Corporation (PBH) really want to reach back the $100 per share. A back to the $122 per share would even even better.

I double check my latest finding, Sylogist Ltd (SYZ), and I don't like the fact that it had reached the $20 per share several days ago. See for yourself:

I don't like this overall chart. Why? Its because SYZ still, on date of today, didn't catch up to the old +$20 it had reached in 2000.

Another good example of an overall chart that I don't like is Tecsys Inc. (TCS). We note exactly the same scenario here:

I am looking for stocks who has a perfect chart. An example of a perfect chart is Canadian National Railway Co (CNR):

CNR certainly represent THE perfect chart, all the way up, it exceed its 2008 value. What I am looking for is for stocks who are permanently sitting their best assets (not to say ass) on their highest value ever. Of course, those stocks are hard to find, but I always find new ones, like for example, Mainstreet Equity Corp. (MEQ):

This chart is "rockier" than CNR, but still, Mainstreet Equity Corp. (MEQ) has a lot to offer to investors. Its just too bad that MEQ doesn't pay any dividend.

With this simple strategy that consist at "reading" overall charts, you'll read chart like a fortune-teller read palms for your really own benefit. There's nothing complicated when it comes to investing in stocks. Of course, good past results don't mean that a stock will continue to have good results in the future, but please, tell me, what are the risks for Canadian National Railway Co (CNR) to worth next to nothing in the years to come? That risk is really low. 

A good lecture of an overall chart will tell you a lot about the personality of a stock. We had lived several crisis before, including the 2008 stock crash - which is the most symbolic one for me. A stock that is volatile will show a rocky stock. CNR is not what I will define as being a volatile stock.

While browsing on the different screens present in Stockopedia, its mainly what I do, looking at the overall chart of each and single stocks presnt in all of those screens.

All of Canadian weed stocks, including Aphria Inc. (AHP) that I hold inside my non-registered portfolio, all have really rocky volatile stocks. And as long I am concern, none of them pay dividend distribution. Pot stocks are too volatile and are far as being good investments like Canadian National Railway Co (CNR). I hold APH for now, but when I get the chance to sell out of shares, I will.

I am hunting for the exceptional, and that's always really hard to find, but I recently got lucky. I had found a really perfect stock: Cargojet Inc. (CJT):

Yes, this overall chart of Cargojet Inc. (CJT) is albsolutely PERFECT and that's why that this being is now in my investment portfolio. To make smart investment decision is quite simple and easy. No need to have any financial knowledge - I don't have any -, read the overall chart and make some killer findings. Now, the only question is, what are you waiting for? 

And let's not forget to cheer up the TSX before brushing your teeth for bedtime.

So go go go sexy darling. GOOOOOOOOooooo

And now: Sylogist Ltd (SYZ)

Premium Brands Holdings Corporation (PBH) is making interesting gain. PBH is getting closer and closer to the $100 share value. I am doing a bit of browsing on Stockopedia, and I found a few interesting things:

-InterRent Real Estate Investment (IIP.UN) - this one could be a nice replacement for Firm Capital Mortgage Investment Corporation (FC) that I recently sell inside my TFSA portfolio
-Mainstreet Equity (MEQ) - I mention this stock before and even with the recent "crisis" MEQ is going on strong
-Sylogist Ltd (SYZ) - this is quite a mysterious company in intellectual property. There's absolutely no info regarding the board or the management of this company in their Web site, which is really strange.

One thing for sure, James D. Wilson, the CEO of Sylogist Ltd (SYZ) is a discreet man - too discreet for my taste. I like to know who I am dealing with when I invest my money and if I cannot find a pic somewhere of that James D. Wilson - who actually may be the CEO of SYZ, I am not even sure!

SYZ has a nice chart, is decent in term of StockRank in Stockopedia and pay a decent dividend.

The only matter being: who's on board, and who's the CEO???

If those infos aren't explicit like they should be, its a problem.

Cargojet Inc. (CJT) is the perfect stock for the perfect Dividend Girl

The TSX didn't continue in its glory gains of yesterday, but my numbers are about the same as yesterday. It feel great to have my non-registered in the 175k. I will be up and running in no time, so I am drinking my glass of Martini in the hope of future gains. I actually bought my first bottle of Martini last weekend and I kind of like it. A like alcohol once in a while, but I am not into drugs or weed, even if today mark its first day of legacy in Canada.

I am really glad that I invested in Cargojet Inc. (CJT) inside my TFSA account because 2.73%. And just in case you are really curious, on how I find this killer stock, its not a secret, I wrote it before, I find CJT using Stockopedia screens. And sincerely, I wish that CJT take the place of my late Exchange Income Corporation (EIF) inside my TFSA portfolio. I felt the pressure to sell off EIF following Marc Cohodes evil games. And I never felt so devastated. Even today, EIF is not were it used to be. Just like Donald Trump, I suspect Marc Cohodes to have a tiny little penis. Very little and very delicate, useless as the man that he is.

Personally, I don't find that Stormy Daniels has a horseface. I actually find her quite pretty, but I wouldn't like to be in her shoes. Trump should look at his wife face, Melania has a real strange face, but Stormy has a perfect face. Would you like to see my face? Well, you won't ever see if, but in exchange of your fidelity, I give you everything, except me.

And sometimes, you don't even need a penis to be a good stock picker. You just need Stockopedia.

With Fortis Inc. (FTS), I get what I need: DIVIDEND $$$

Nice little jump for the TSX today. But one question remain: how long will it take for the TSX to go back to its old 16 500 points?

My non-registered portfolio closed today session at $175 168.29. My investment in TFI International Inc. (TFII) gain 1.79%, which confirm my good taste when it comes to stocks. I only fall for the really best. My TFSA portfolio closed today session at $77 358.86. Inside my TFSA portfolio, my investment in Cargojet Inc. (CJT) gains 1.39%. Let's go my girl. Its not anything soon that I am going to fail on the stock market. I am not ready to pay off my margin debt yet and its not anytime soon that I am going to stop investing in stock. Especially now, it feel like the real game is only beginning. I want my $300 000 net worth. My RRSP portfolio closed today session at $38 360.13. 

To make the story short, if you are looking for investments that will perform well on the long run and pay back in dividend, feel free to invest in my TFII and CJT, but don't go with mutual funds, and certainly don't go with an investment that is manage by a Quebecker, the JFT Strategies Fund (JFS.UN) of Jean-François Tardif is an example of a bad investment manage by a so call professional who's only an investment fee sucker. You basically pay for a name that no longer has any notoriety. Jean-François Tardif has prove that he's nothing more than an incompetent Quebecker, and in Quebec, they are many like him, to fresh, arrogant, an incapable of getting good returns for their investors. You should definitively avoid any investment manage under a Quebecker. As for Quebec stocks, some worth it, but there again, don't invest too much in the same Quebec company and keep track safely. I own really good Quebec stocks, like TFII, SIS, LAS.A, but I manage and I manage and I manage. This mean that I keep track. I actually do something that Jean-François Tardif doesn't know how to do anymore: manage money for its profit. But don't ask too much for Quebeckers, its a province of losers.

I had been holding to Fortis Inc. (FTS) for a long time now inside my non-registered portfolio. When it come to investment, I take my duty seriously, I am all in to make money, and I try to hold to the best. And Fortis Inc. (FTS) is one of those investments, a must have. FTS always been a good loyal investment, its one of my rock, and that it probably won't change in the years to come. Best of all, FTS increase its dividend distribution on a regular basis. And today. Fortis Inc. announced a 5.9% increased of its dividend. 

With my recent portfolio changes, my annual dividend income (excluding RRSP) is now at $8 640.17. Not too bad. I don't really focus on my dividend income. Its much more important to hold to really good stocks that will fight and perform on the long run, rather than purchasing whatever stock that offer a too juicy dividend.

And for that reason, I find myself really really bright. I have sell my investment CHP.UN at profit and it was about time. Sell when you can, pray and eat breakfast.

And best of luck, because you'll need some.

The TSX is desperately trying to make some gains, at least for now

The stock market is a rough place to be, but it look like we had reached the lowest point in this crisis - at least I wish - and the TSX is desperately trying to gain some points. My non-registered portfolio closed today session at $172 388.33, my TFSA portfolio at $76 499.81, and my RRSP portfolio, stocks only, at $37 902.39, which is not too bad overall. Weed stocks are gaining in notoriety and it has good effect on my APH stocks. My non-registered portfolio may be on the 172k, but it have everything to be on the 190k mark.

Welcome in my investment portfolios TFI International Inc. (TFII) and Cargojet Inc. (CJT)!

I did a few investments move this past Friday. As you know, I was getting ready to sell all of my NTR shares, but I changed my mind. Instead, I partly sell my NTR investment, I actually sold half of my shares. I decided to keep some NTR shares in because its involvement in the potash business, and no matter what I like or not NTR, it brings a nice diversification inside my portfolio. I am satisfied with this move. Following my sell of a few NTR shares, I decided to move forward with a new investment. I decided to invest in TFI International Inc. (TFII) inside my non-registered portfolio. I had TFII in my radar for a little while now and I am pleased with this new investment. 

One day, I know I will pay off my margin, but right now, there's just too much I want to do with mu TSX baby. Its like junkie who had to deal with its drug addiction. He promised that tomorrow, he won't consume, but guess what... I am exactly in the same boat, at the exception that I hope that my addiction will conduct to a healthier financial situation. My addiction is my stocks and the TSX is the place of all of my obsessions. Because it seems that it hold to everything that I want. I want the best Canadian businesses to be alive in well in my investment portfolio, and served my personal interests.

I proceed with some changes inside my TFSA portfolio as well. I decided to sell my investments in Choice Properties Real Estate Investment Trust (CHP.UN) and Firm Capital Mortgage Investment Corporation (FC). Those two were not gaining much in capital gains. I now preferred to invest in quality stocks and I don't mind if they pay less in term of dividend. Following the sell of CHP.UN and FC, I decided to invest in another stock that was in my radar: Cargojet Inc. (CJT).

For now, I still hold to all of my oil stocks: Enbridge Income Fund Holdings Inc. (ENF), Enbridge Inc. (ENB), Parkland Fuel Corp (PKI) and Pembina Pipeline Corporation (PPL). This past Friday, Parkland Fuel Corp (PKI) closed the session at $45.96, its highest value for the past 52 weeks.

Another interesting stock that reach its 52 weeks high is: MTY Food Group Inc. (MTY). Derek Foster hold to Restaurant Brands International Inc. (QSR) in his portfolio, but personnaly, I prefer MTY. Could MTY be part of my portfolio one day? The answer is: YES!

It makes me happy to invest in new stocks. With my new investments, I had helped the TSX to gain 97.16 points this past Friday. Go go go! The TSX is need of a lot of love and encouragement right now. I am willing to provide all that to her.

Getting ready to say goodbye to Nutrien Ltd. (NTR)

Another really difficult day for the TSX, as well as for the American markets. My non-registered portfolio close the day at $171 345.34, my TFSA portfolio at $76 123.63, and my RRSP portfolio, stocks only, at $37 643.49. Its a tough situation, but hard times are always the best time to have a good hard look at yourself.... In my case, I am sitting my pretty assets on a big fat margin of over $98 000. That's borrowed money that I don't own. And owning a big fat margin is quite dangerous these days. Fact is, we could be in for more difficult days to come. 

In the old days, I just adore my Agrium stocks, I made a great deal of money when Nutrien Ltd. (NTR) was Agrium. I am currently on a little capital gain on NTR and I find that this is just the really perfect time to sell NTR and pay down my margin. I am also looking forward to sell a few other stocks of my non-registered portfolio: Saputo Inc. (SAP), and BCE Inc. (BCE). This will help to reduce my margin and I really have no problem with selling those 3 stocks.

Now, selling stocks inside a TFSA portfolio is quite nice because while doing so, you won't pay tax on the capital gain. Inside my TFSA, I have a few stocks which are in good position, with a capital gain: BMO, CHP.UN, FC, NA, NWC and CM. I don't really care about those stocks and I am thinking about selling them inside my TFSA, and after transferred the cash to my margin, to pay it off. 

All together, the sell of those assets will hep to bring down my margin to $75 000, which is more better. I could even push it harder. In my investment life, I had invested in oil only because Derek Foster, in his early days, was holding to PPL, and ENF, and ENB. I am not that a fan of oil and I find it quite horrible for me to be an oil investor. Like if I would be a piece of shit or something even worst. The only problem is that I had recorded so far a lot of $$$ in term of capital gain on those stocks. So if I sell them, I will pay taxes on the capital gain, because I hold PPL, ENF and ENB in my non-registered portfolio.

I am still thinking, but its certainly clear for me that I am going to sell NTR tomorrow, and SAP, and BCE.

While waiting for the marijuana legalization, the TSX is not getting high

I hope you all had an Happy Thanksgiving investors! I spent mine in the beautiful New Brunswick and I had a nice time, look for yourself.

 Magic mushrooms ;-)

 Dinner is ready!

I saw a moose for the second time of my life. It was a female, as you can see, who quietly cross the road. When I saw her, I quickly got out of my dad truck and run to her, with my camera... And for a few seconds, the bitch look at me, I look at her, and it was like all the power of the woods was enveloping me. And trust me, I will need all the power available at my disposal to face the next coming days. It was a magical moment. Just look at me for a few seconds and left. On the other side of the road, a car was coming... But the moose was gone.

These days, the TSX is not exactly in good shape, and so is the NASDAQ. It's quite hard to be under the 16 000 points, and it's much harder when the TSX trade in the 15 500 points... The markets are facing some major sell-off because of some stupid, nervous investors. Please, don't be like them. This situation is disappointing, but it's not hopeless. And I am really proud to say that once again, this down market is not affecting me. My non-registered portfolio is trading at $173 847.89 (it's usually at 180k), my TFSA portfolio closed today session at $76 961.93 (it's usually at 80k), and my RRSP portfolio (stocks only), at $38 055.59 (it's usually at 40k). Yes, I am facing a major drop off, but it's not an excuse to panic, and there's always a bright side. For example, currently, Parkland Fuel Corp (PKI) is on an extraordinary gain. PKI gains today 5%, while the TSX as losing 2.12%. APH also made nice gain today.

Its always hard to invest when the market is down, but with time, the disturbance that comes with a down market is less and less (trust me), and deep inside, you'll find the courage to invest. Why? Because this is the time to make your money out of the stocks market. This is a good time to buy quality stocks at a cheap price. I built a big piece of my "fortune" by investing in stocks after the 2008 market crash and this is your opportunity to do exactly the same thing. BUT - invest using real cash, no margin. Don't know what to invest in? I am going to help you, just like usual. Right now, I am your best friend. Check out at the list of my really best stocks:

I hold on to many great stocks in my portfolio, but this is a quick list to help you out. During those hard times, you can certainly count on the New Brunswicker that I am, but don't count on Jean-François Tardif and his JFT Strategies Fund (JFS.UN) to help you out, both the man and the fund are absolutely going nowhere.

While facing a down market, yes, your portfolio go down, but its part of the game. You need to be able to take that shit down and don't let the TSX get into to you and scare you. It's time to be strong like a warrior. And its also time to admire all the health built over the years. Personally, my PBH investment is still at +347%, my PPL, at +102%, etc... Because I started investing years ago, I am still in a good spot with my portfolio, but I am certainly not on top of my game right now.

While facing a big drop in your portfolio because of the TSX, you need to remain courageous. If you have some saving, invest in quality stocks. I have about 2k available, and your little favorite will do so, I just have to think about what I am going to invest in. And of course, I will let you know because right now, I am the best thing you got and you know it. I am like the little angel that is on earth to protect you and I just love you so much that you'll never know.

And this being said, it's important to keep busy during in a down market. Here are a few things that I do to keep busy that may help you as well:
-Check out your stuff, see what you don't use and put it on sell on Kijiji
-Clean your place
-Clean your closet, sell or give away the clothes you don't wear anymore
-Do your laundry
-Start a blog (so you can always try to beat me at my own game -we'll see what you can do)
-Cook a banana bread
-Go to the gym
-Listen to The Sopranos (I have a secret love crush on James Gandolfini, too bad he passed away a few years ago)
-Make a list of things you have to do
-Start thinking of your shopping for Christmas!
-If you have a smartphone, download Yahoo Finance and enter the stocks you own in your portfolio so you can give it a check while you are at a coffee shop

And I don't have any more ideas, for now, you get the picture. Just keep busy, and breathe. Now, I am really your best friend.

I now have a LG K4 cell phone and its about all for the big news

Life gets boring when the TSX herself is extremely overwhelming BORINGGGG.

I finally got a new cell phone, I bought an LG K4 at $120 and a memory card for it. It's quite easy to use. I guess I taught it was more complicated. That phone is basically like a little computer, but at a good price. I am with Chatr Mobile, which is a company own by Rogers. Chatr offers great plans and great phones at a good price. No need to spend several hundred on an iPhone. I don't own an iPhone, but I own an iPod which is practical when I am at the gym. iPhones are for idiots. Money is too precious to be spending whatever, whenever.

A new NAFTA deal with a new name had been reached, however, the TSX is not on high gains right now. The new agreement will need to be accepted by the Congress, but it's a simple formality. So why the TSX is not reacting positively? Personally, I think that the sweet baby is simply traumatized by months are hard negotiations and is simply in need of pure money love, and of a lot of care and attention before gaining points. With this going on, my non-registered portfolio closed today session at a low $179 746.83, my TFSA portfolio at $79 196.38, and my RRSP portfolio, stocks only, at 
$39 564.21.

Currently, the only fun thing going on is that I have $398.90 in cash inside of my TFSA, that amount is coming from dividend distribution. I am going to place a new investment move once that amount reaches $500. Currently Pollard Banknote Limited (PBL) is receiving media attention and it might not be a bad thing. But I am not that move by PBL. NEXT please. I can find better than PBL. But that's the best the Globe and Mail can do for you.

Thank you
