My non-registered portfolio on the $125 000 value

Lightspeed POS Inc. (LSPD) decided to perfrom good again today, but I didn't place any trades on it today. But Ichecked it from time to time, how knows if I will try another day trading move on that one. At this point, LSPD doesn't have anything I am looking for as an investment, that stock is only an investment to play on for day traders.  My non-registered portfolio closed today session at a good $125 267.36. This is among the first time that I had been in the $125k value for my non-registered portfolio - its the only reason why I am writing this blog post right now. I hope tomorrow will be another good day for the TSX, that way I will be able to publish a portfolio update. I may be able to hit in the $223 000-225 000 net worth, if lucky. And lucky I am.

Belive it or not, Derek Foster's General Mills Inc. (GIS) US stock is gaining 8.69% in my US portfolio - it took a really long time for this little one to generate some capital gain. My US portfolio, I don't ever really write about it because it only contains two stocks - closed today session at $3 250 US. My TFSA portfolio closed today session at $69 930.5, and my RRSP portfolio - stocks only - at $42 300.96.I think its the first time ever that my RRSP stocks portfolio is on the $42 000 value. So that's quite good too. Fun thing with stocks is that if you pick the right ones, your asset grow over time and it make it easier and easier over time to reach the big bucks. If I can get a good stock situation this year for the TSX, I could easily be on my way for a $250 000 net worth - if not more. 

Currently, I am looking fro stocks involved in the health sector - I don't have any stocks in that sector. I would also like to invest in a stock involed in water treatment and environment - but I find those stocks to be hard to find. This is going to be my little project on the side with Stockopedia for the weekend.

In my TFSA portfolio, I am thinking about selling my investment in Sienna Senior Living Inc. (SIA), but I am not sure yet. Its about all for now. If I need to sell something in order to pay my 2018 taxes, SIA will be the one that I will be selling.

My tax declaration for 2018 is now completed

I got my 2018 tax declaration done this evening, but it wasn't without any pain. About two days ago, I received an email saying that my tax declaration was now completed and that I could go get the papers at any time. I manage to have that done today. As soon as I got the declaration in hand, I check if my financial fees were correctly declared. And as I expected it, it hasn't been entered.

It had been checked as being entered by the accounting on the paper, but it hasn't been entered in my tax declaration. The amount was quite important and as I notice the mistake, I immediately asked to have it fixed, especially since that I had paid for the service as soon as I stepped inside. I was told that I need an appointment with the accountant. I had to explain that it was a mistake from their part and they need to have it fixed now, since I had already pay for the tax declaration. I managed to get their mistake fix. That brings the amount that I needed to pay back in taxes from $4 856 to... $2 996. 

Following what, I walked my way back home, I stopped at a coffee shop and made my way back home. Once home, I had the really good idea to verify my tax declaration. Its when I had found a second big mistake, that time was with the amount of dividend income that was declared for 2018. I called myself a taxi to hit back to the accounting office. I was quite upset. They had fix again their mistake. That time, the amount I have to pay back in taxes (federal and provincial) went from $2 996 to... $2 049.

At first, $2 049 may seem as being a big amount to pay back in taxes, but I don't if you remembered my investment year of 2018: I made several thousands of $$$ in capital gain by selling RNX and PBH, among other things. 2018 was the year when I decreased my margin account usage from $100 000 to less than now $45 000. $2 049 is a really small amount to pay back in regards to everything that been positively accomplished in 2018. I am not upset about the fact that I have to give back $2 049 in taxes to the federal and provincial government, but I am however pretty upset on how Impôts Ici completely fuck up my tax declaration this year. I am certainly not going to deal with them next year, that's for sure. If I continue to review my 2018 tax declaration, I am pretty sure that I am going to find other mistakes. I am not a specialist, so it's quite difficult for me, trying to figure out if more mistakes had been done or not from Impôts Ici, as I am working on impressions and comparisons to my 2017 tax declaration.

This is how it goes with Quebeckers, always so pure incompetent. Always double check everything with them. It's the number one rule for outsiders trying to survive in Quebec province.

My feelings are always right. I didn't get myself that $220 000 net worth out of poverty because I am an ordinary girl. My intuition is my best tool and I always obey it. I knew, even by entering Impôts Ici door that I had to check if my financial fees had been probably declared. I just knew it. This year, they probably made new hiring and there must be a new accountant that shouldn't be working there. I never had any problems with Impôts Ici before, but this year had been quite catastrophic and it had made lose my precious time. It's now past 10 pm and I didn't even have time to check out on my precious stocks. Quebeckers are quite good at this, making lose my time and my temper. And trust me, you don't want to be there when it happens, give me what I ask or just be ready to see how evil and mean I can be. No matter what happens, I will always be the last one standing. At the end of the day at least, I only have $2 049 to pay back... and not $4 856. It had worth the fight.

Great day for my net worth, but bad day for Canadians

I have never been a fan of Justin Trudeau, but today, baby face Andrew Sheer and members of his Conservative Party really pissed me off. The scene makes me remembered of when the poor Theresa May was desperately trying to get a consensus for the Brexit, but members of the government were just making so much noise! Its such a childish attitude coming from so-called representatives of the people. Back at the time, I was a bad girl and taught of Ukers were such a bunch of miserable people. But today, it was our turn. This is not supposed to happen in Canadian society. We are perfect, we are the best. The federal budget is quite something important, but by creating such a chaotic scene, the Tories made it impossible to listen to Bill Morneau presentation speech of the 2019 federal budget. I would like to listen to what Morneau had to say, I was waiting for it. I was actually listening to BNN, but I taught the problem was coming from BNN... Anyway, I am really not impress by Andrew Sheer, I sincerely prefer having another 4 years with Justin Trudeau, rather than having Andrew Sheer as Prime Minister. In my belove New Brunswick province, things are slowly getting better. We had been able to pay down some debt and generate some income.

Despite being an English man, our representative Blaine Higgs is not cutting off into the bilingualism of the province, which is quite good. French communities don't have to be scare. And as you might know, I am a New Brunswicker coming from one of those Acadian French communities. I am saying Acadian French, because being French, and being Acadian French is not the same thing. I wasn't able to vote at the last New Brunswick elections for the simple reason that I, unfortunately, live in Quebec province, but I was quite scared of Blaine Higgs and I saw only in him an English man who doesn't speak any French, despite the fact that he had all of his life to learn. Higgs is quite an old man, he doesn't have the fresh years of Brian Gallant, but at least, it's looking like New Brunswick is going somewhere, for once. While coming from such a poor province where finding work is so hard, you get to appreciate your money, even more, when you get the chance to have some. And not only do you get to appreciate that money, but you certainly do something with it, because you learned, a long time ago, how much those bucks are precious, you get to be smarter than anyone else - as you might know it.


The federal budget presents a few good things, but it's being said that it's not a budget that will protect us much in the eventual case of a recession. That upcoming recession, it's being talked about so much that I think that all investors, major or small, see it in their soup. We are waiting for it to come. But I don't want it to come. Can I please have it easy for once? Maybe we are in a recession right now and we don't even know it. Anyhow, recession or not, my non-registered portfolio closed today session at a really good $124 212.53, my TFSA portfolio at $69 403.15 and my RRSP portfolio, stocks only, $42 074.45. The numbers are only getting higher. I believe my net worth is in the $220 000 right now. Let's go. I am not going to stop here. No sign of recession in my investments. I am just too good to be real.

Lightspeed POS Inc. (LSPD) is no longer so good and keep going down. I am not expecting to repeat any day trading move on this one. Since last week, when I quickly sold LDPD, I didn't get back in and I am quite happy I didn't.

Lightspeed POS Inc. (LSPD): my best Canadian stock for day trading

This past week had been an interesting one. My non-registered portfolio closed this week session at $123 319.022, my TFSA portfolio at $69 518.37, and my RRSP portfolio - stocks only - at $41 808.09. Many great things are going on. Currently, my investment is Pembina Pipeline Corporation (PPL) is exceeding the $31 000 value. In my TFSA portfolio, Derek Foster stock, General Mills Inc. (GIS), remains in the positive zone, with a tiny, but still, again, at least, of 3.17%. 

It's been a long road for GIS but now we are all set, and I hope for more gain. Sometimes, a stock will register quick gains inside of my portfolio - and sometimes, it's not the case, it somtimes takes some time. In that matter, I can only think of my Richards Packaging Income Fund (RPI.UN). I acquired RPI.UN for my RRSP portfolio back... in 2016! It took some time for my investment to register some capital gain, but it eventually did. And I am currently on a gain of 63% with Richards Packaging Income Fund (RPI.UN).

Sometimes, before starting giving some positive results in a portfolio, a stock will need to take the time it needs to breath, take its air and just be, for a little while. It's always kind of frustrating when a stock is not performing well as quickly as we would want. Another example of a stock which I had difficulties to hold at first: Nutrien Ltd. (NTR). Its been a rough road for NTR, but the current Nutrien Ltd. (NTR) performance has nothing to do with my late Agrium shares - but at least, NTR had started provided some serious $$$. Inside my TFSA portfolio, Sienna Senior Living Inc. (SIA) is sitting on a shy 2.29%. However I am glad because I started getting scared that SIA may be caused some capital loses when I started realizing that this little one wasn't going to be a top-notch performer, but it didn't - at least so far.

This past Wednesday, I placed a quick buy-and-sell move on Lightspeed POS Inc. (LSPD), and ever since, I had been carefully watching how LSPD had been doing. I had in mind to go back in LSPD again and place another hot sell in the fire, but the title had been going more down than up, so I didn't proceed. LSPD is on a hot momentum right now. I had been day trading, and many others are doing the same damn thing. That's what this reader doesn't seem to understand. That's where is coming LSPD volatility: from sweet day traders like myself who had been smart enough to target Lightspeed POS Inc. (LSPD). I am not in tech stocks, so I proabably ever be investing in LSPD, but I may, again, day trade it's ticket - one more time.

Day trading Lightspeed POS Inc. (LSPD): this one is fun for real!

I wrote about Lightspeed POS Inc. (LSPD) and it only "light-up" the idea for some little day trading. I had been waiting for the right stock to proceed and thankfully, Lightspeed POS Inc. (LSPD) appears to be on the right momentum, enjoying intensive spotlights. Currently, on the TSX, LSPD is highly popular, LSPD is among the most actively traded companies on the TSX! And guess what, your little favorite took part into the action!

I am mostly what you may consider an "investor", and mostly a dividend oriented investor for the biggest part. I like to target stocks for the long run. I had been investing in stocks for now over 10 years (actually 11 years now), and it's quite nice to see that I still hold stocks that I had been holding on for 11 years. I love to invest, but I also like to trade from time to time. What I define as trading is holding a stock for a short period of time, and selling quickly while it's possible to make some money out of a quick buy-and-sell move. It's easier for me to be an investor rather than a trader because I had an "investor" for 11 years now. And I didn't place many quick buy-and-sell moves during those 11 years. My instincts are mostly on the investment side, and not trading. But in 11 years, I saw different things and it helps me to understand that, even if a trade move is done for a quick move, once money is invested, you need to invest it into something solid. Always target quality stocks, and you'll even be able to day trade on them once in a while if you really want to.

Internet and YouTube is full of so call traders. You'll find many investors being at the search of penny stocks to trade. Personally, penny stocks are out of my lead, but the idea of day trading penny stocks is quite appealing. And many personalities play on that "easy money aura", like for example Timothy Sykes who's my little favorite on that field. I even taught about following his courses at one point. For now, I still don't like penny stocks. I prefer to invest and trade more solid stocks.

Personally, I find that Lightspeed POS Inc. (LSPD) is the perfect stock for day trading - at least for now. Today, it took me only 43 minutes to make $106 - after commission fees - out of LSPD. I place the trade using my margin account. I was anxious at first, but quickly following my buy move, LSPD registered some serious gain. If I would have wait more, I would have made even more money, but while trading, I always choose to escape from the trap when I can, rather than being find stuck there - not being able to sell for profit.

I think that LSPD is in the game for even more growth. I can easily see the stock reach the $25 per action. But here again, it's only based on impression, on the current momentum that the stock is on right now. But remember that this momentum could eventually stop without any warnings.

All spotlights on Lightspeed POS Inc. (LSPD)

Many great things are going on right now for the TSX. Currently, my non-registered portfolio closed today session at $123 769.33, my TFSA portfolio at $69 515.62 and my RRSP portfolio at $41 655.85. It's quite exciting to see my RRSP stocks portfolio exceeding the 40k mark. A great stock of mine that I had been holding on to since 2017, CGI, is doing quite great. CGI Inc. (GIB.A) recently made an offer to acquired an IT firm that operated in Europe: Acando AB. Those are great news for all CGI investors. Inside my RRSP portfolio, CGI Inc. (GIB.A) is on a 32% gain, which is quite great. Truly,  CGI Inc. (GIB.A) is the perfect stock, with the perfect chart, please see for yourself:

CGI Inc. is really perfect, but every bad girl has it's little glitched. And CGI is that it doesn't pay any dividend distribution. CGI is a company based in Montreal and its probably one of the best of all Quebec companies trading on the TSX, if not THE BEST Quebec company that is currently trading on the TSX.

These days, another Quebec company is stealing the show on the TSX: Lightspeed POS Inc. (LSPD). Lightspeed POS Inc. entered the wonderful world of the TSX just a few days ago. At first, LSPD made me taught of Shopify Inc., but Lightspeed is not exactly like Shopify. From what I understand, LSPD is an inventory platform for businesses and Shopify is an eCommerce platform. Currently, Lightspeed POS Inc. (LSPD) is enjoying strong momentum. Since the stock is a newcomer on the TSX, Stockopedia doesn't have any data on LSPD yet so I can't get this time that second opinion, a second opinion that I am now too use to get. I am really spoiled. However, my idea on Lightspeed POS Inc. (LSPD) is that it could make an interesting stock pick for a quick hit-and-run move.

Like CGI, LSPD doesn't pay any different, but the similarities between the two stocks stop right there. Lightspeed POS Inc. (LSPD) doesn't have, and won't have any time soon the same really strong historic that CGI Inc. (GIB.A) has. So if you want to play, and play only, LSPD is a good one, to play in the short run. I made a quick comparison between Shopify and Lightspeed, but Lighspeed also include some eCommerce stuff, and I am pretty sure that Shopify also offers some inventory feature... Maybe one day Shopify will be looking forward to buying Lightspeed POS Inc., it would be quite a logical move. We'll have to see about this prediction but so far, I have the feeling of quite a really fresh arrogant management team coming from the side of Lightspeed POS Inc. Is LSPD a good stock for the long term? No. But if you want to play, go for it. As I feel LSPD has super fresh management, typical of Quebeckers. I am however confident that LSPD is relatively secure in the short run. I will keep watching this one and we'll see if I go for a quick buy-and-sell move on this one. It seems to me that I didn't play in a long time. So this is it. Lightspeed POS Inc. (LSPD) could be the perfect partner for a hot one night stand that could be quite lucrative. $$$ As for CGI, its forever everrrr love.

Other than that, inside my TFSA portfolio, my newest investment, SIR Royalty Income Fund (SRV.UN) is doing great, I had registered a little gain on the investment. Latest proud is making mommy proud. Go go go!

Another stock: Brookfield Asset Management Inc. (BAM.A)

The TSX closed this past Friday session under the 16 000 points. My non-registered portfolio closed the session at $122 982.92, my TFSA portfolio at $69 089.73, and my RRSP portfolio - stocks only - at $40 937.27. My numbers are not too bad. TD WebBroker had launched a new fun "Goal" feature. You might know it by now, I am obsessed with one thing, and its to reached a net worth of $300 000. Good news being, that "Goal" feature calculate that I will be able to reach and even exceed the $300 000 net worth in 3 years, which is not too bad, with my moderate risk profile. Its a fun little feature, but what I need, more than time to reach my goal, is a good stock market condition, and some savings please.

Speaking savings, I am expecting to save in the $2 600 cash this month, which is quite a good thing because I will need that money to pay down my taxes. My tax declaration will be complete in about 12 days from now. Once completed, I will to pay what need to me paid. I estimate that amount to be in the $3 650. Its a lot, but not that much knowing that I made several thousands in capital gain by trading RNX, and by selling all of my PBH shares. I don't regret selling PBH - I feel much better now that my margin usage is lower than it been in ages.

This wasn't expected, but I just find a great stock on Stockopedia: Brookfield Asset Management Inc. (BAM.A).

Welcome in my TFSA portfolio SIR Royalty Income Fund (SRV.UN)!

The TSX closed on a positive note today, but its looking like my favorite stock market is having a bit of trouble to jump over the 16 000 points.

It hasn't been an easy road for Aecon Group Inc. (ARE). I own this stock since October 2017. Before October 2017, I have just no idea that this brilliant Aecon Group Inc. (ARE) was even alive and existed. Ever since Canada rejected the acquisition offer for ARE coming from China, the stock has never been completely a winner stock. ARE never registered great capital gains inside my non-registered portfolio. But all that is about to change. 

Despite its lack of capital gain - remember that this situation had remained the same for about 3 years!!! - I never taught of ARE as being a bad stock pick. Personally, I love those engineering kind of stocks, like WSP, Toromont Industries Ltd. (TIH). TIH is not exactly engineering, but its certainly one of my greatest proud inside my portfolio. Those kind of stocks fit me well. Today, Aecon Group Inc. (ARE) announced record revenue AND an increased of their dividend distribution.With my newest investment, my dividend income, excluding RRSP, is now at $7 488.60.

I finally did it, I had today invested in SIR Royalty Income Fund (SRV.UN)! I made only a small investment. Another great thing I done today was getting my paper ready for my 2018 tax declaration. I hate everything that include paper work, and the taxes are just another one of those pains. I probably going to have to pay something like 3 to 4k in taxes, but I prefer just to pay instead of investing money inside my RRSP. I would need to invest at least 10k to have a real effect on my taxes. And I think its too late now to invest in my RRSP for 2018. Anyway, I am not a fan of RRSP. But we'll get back on the taxes and RRSP topics soon enough.

Getting ready to welcome SIR Royalty Income Fund (SRV.UN) in my TFSA portfolio

TOk, this is going to be a quick post because its getting late. Ready? I am, but don't be distract in case there's spelling mistake - you know the usual anyway.

Over the years, I had bought and sold different stocks. And one of those stocks had been Keg Royalties Income Fund (The) (KEG.UN). I had hold on to that one for a little while inside my TFSA portfolio, but at a point, capital gain on KEG.UN were so-so and Susan Brunner review of the stock wasn't so great. All things combine, I decided to sell KEG.UN and I don't regret the move. Once I sell a stock, I rarely go back in. And this time, I am not interesting in getting into KEG.UN. Back in the time, I discovered KEG.UN by watching the Desperate Housewives of Vancouver - which is hilarious in a way. As long as you make great deal and fun money, there's absolutely no good or bad ways to pick up some hot stocks among the way.

As you might know, I am currently desperately searching and searching for a new investment for my TFSA portfolio. I don't know if I own this smart decision to my newest short hair cur à la Marilyn Monroe (I had to run for a hair cut this past weekend, my hair had grown so long andit haven't been 3 months since my latest hair cut!! Curly hair that grown too much too fast can be quite hard to take)., but I made this wise decision: SIR Royalty Income Fund (SRV.UN) is going to take the place of my past KEG.UN inside my TFSA portfolio.

Isn't great? I now can stop searching, at least for now.

With Spring eventually hitting in, I was in need of a new investment anyway. With an annual dividend distribution of $1.26 per unit, SIR Royalty Income Fund (SRV.UN) is the perfect stock to be holding inside a TFSA portfolio - dividend earned are tax free and SRB.UN dividend distribution is richly juicyyyyyy. So enjoy my latest finding, investors, because you know it, it can't get any better than this. Try to beat me up on this one if you can.

Thank you,you are really welcome, and good night.

Welcoming warmly a $217 000 net worth

While checking over my stocks this past Friday, I notice some interesting things going on for my portfolio. I decided it was the perfect time to update my investment portfolio. Among the first thing I notice, my investment in Jamieson Wellness Inc. (JWEL) is back in the positive zone, with a gain of 5.93%. My investment in PPL keep going stronger: I am now closed to 31k on that stock alone. In the other hand, I had seen better days for Savaria Corporation (SIS).

Inside my little US stocks portfolio, Derek Foster's General Mills Inc. (GIS) is on a gain - and I think its the first time EVER - 2.54% gain inside my portfolio for GIS. I didn't get rich yet on this Derek Foster stock. However, please remember that my PPL is a Derek Foster stock and I am going rich on it.

As for my TFSA portfolio, two of my latest investments Cargojet Inc. (CJT) and TFI International Inc. (TFII) are being named "high flyers" on Stockopedia and I have to admit, Stockeopedia wasn't wrong on those lovely two! In my personal English, the designation of high flyer = volatile stock, a stock that are sensitive to the market fluctuations. However, high flyers are not all bad. Sometimes, a high flyer can be quite lucrative and could be good stocks to target in case you want to do a quick hit-and-run move. 

I never been a huge fan of Nutrien Ltd. (NTR) for the simple and good reason that I never been able to register some capital positive gain ever since my fantastic Agrium stocks transformed into some boring NTR stocks. But surprise, NTR now has decided to please me and is now on... a 15.6% gain! Among other troublemaker stocks, Sienna Senior Living Inc. (SIA) joined my portfolio on a neutral tone, I wasn't expecting extremely huge capital gains on this little one, but surprise, I am now only on a -0.25% loss on this one. When you think about it for 5 minutes, it's quite strange to actually be expected from a stock little or no growth, but it's normal in a portfolio to have a little mix of a bit everything. But for my next investment, I want a winner stock. I want to pick the best stock I can possibly have. Unfortunately, this weekend got busy and I haven't been hunting down my next investment. No rush, but I am really curious to find out what I will be on next.

Other stocks of mine are on a positive gain, that's why I am now sitting on a 217k net worth.

Hourraaa, Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS) increased its dividend distribution!

I think we may be in the 16 000 points for good! 16 000 points = easy time for investors. It's much more fun to be in a relaxed, extra easy steady stock market situation. It's during those good old times that I am at my best. And an easy stock market means easy money, no effort required what so ever, just a couple thousand ALL invested in the glorious TSX, the world best stock market, we have it at home! Sorry, little Americans and UKers, please stay asleep while Canadians are cashing red hot sexy cash. 

Nothing can stop my portfolio for going where it belongs. My beautiful non-registered portfolio proudly closed today session on a wild $122 322.07, my superb TFSA portfolio at $68 958.47, and my superb RRSP portfolio at $40 831.21. My margin debt is at $46 249.50. And princess still have a $1 200+ in cash I am just wondering what I will do with it: pay my credit card in one shoot or invest? I am kind of having rich girl problems now: what should I do with my money??!!!

I am ok to pay my credit card with the upcoming paycheck. If you can do all you need without taking any money from your TFSA portfolio, that's really the best way to go. Having cash available in a TFSA portfolio is a real blessing. You want the max of money to grow tax-free. TFSA is the best tool Canadians have at their disposal. So I decided to reinvest the money I currently have available in my TFSA. I am going to select the lucky winner stock this weekend, isn't exciting enough?  

Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS) recently announced an increased of its dividend. My dividend income is now at $7 374 (without counting the dividend earns inside my RRSP portfolio).

Hello easy money, my dividend income is now at $7 361.81

Another good day for the TSX! Ever since I came back from my vacation in Cuba, the TSX had been on a beef boost. My non-registered portfolio closed today session at $122 234.36, my TFSA portfolio at $68 634.28 and my RRSP portfolio, stocks only, at $40 707.90. I no longer hold on to some ACR.UN units and its juicy stock, so I was just curious to find out about my latest dividend income. And currently, I am now at $7 361.81 (excluding the dividend earn inside my RRSP portfolio), which make a nice sum.

Today, a stock of mine, TFI International Inc. (TFII), announced the acquisition of a US company in their sector of activity, Schilli Corporation. It's a good thing. TFII is a major player, it's just normal that they acquire other businesses over time. TFII closed today session on a 0.81% gains. TFII made its big announcement right after the closing bells, which mean that TFII could register a good gain tomorrow morning. 

These days, the best way to be a good Catholic is not to go to church, and not to give any money to the Catholic church. I never understand why women cannot become a priest, and I never understood why priests have to remain single. Without sexuality, human beings are not totally human beings. They can easily turn into pedophile and sexual maniacs. I don't agree with the Catholic Church on too many things and despite being Catholic myself, it hasn't been a choice of mine, I reject everything that goes with any religion, especially the Catholic one. Religions are dangerous stuff. Muslism is another really dangerous religion to follow. I don't feel the need to have someone standing between my relation to God. The best way to practice religion is not to have one at all. And its why I need to start a new religion that will obey to really simple rules, with a lot of good common sense. Best of all, I am here to collect your money, anytime. In return, you get some nice investment ideas - but you are already getting that for free, lucky Dividend Girl subjects. Don't pray me, but you can certainly be at my feet and adore me as much as you can.

During that time, Canadians understand why they can't rely on Quebeckers: Doug Ford said no to Quebec electricity - just like New Brunswick, SNC Lavalin is a garbage of shames and Justin Trudeau is.. full of deep shit and its not making any sense. But better days are ahead for Canadians, elections are coming in a run. Everythime we have a Quebecker as Prime Minister in this country, they always mess up.

I am publishing now my expenses for February because I don't plan to spend any money on this last week of February.

Saying thank you and goodbye to Agellan Commercial Real Estate Investment Trust (ACR.UN)

My mom left yesterday evening for New Brunswick, and she left in complete chaos because I totally forgot that we had to change her bus ticket for an Orleans one, but we were able to have it change and she left in a rush... I forgot about this little admin task because for obvious reasons, for too many years now, I always buy my bus tickets with Orleans Express. I came back last week from a vacation in Holguin, Cuba, and I spent close to 3 weeks with my mother, which, despite the love, was quite long for many reasons, like having to sleep with her in the same bed. We could have a separate room at the resort, but she didn't want to - too scared to be alone in a room at night. And in Montreal, I only have a small studio apartment... So this is it. After 3 weeks, I finally got to have a good night of sleep.

I enjoyed my vacation week, but I have to say that traveling overseas is not what I like the most, especially in a poor country. I find that we are taking advantage of the poor people of Cuba. Our presence there as tourists quite hypocrite. My poor mother really wanted to travel, she can't alone, my father can't travel, my brother won't do any efforts for her, so here am I, the only option. We are both in a budget so Cuba was the easy choice. And I always have anxiety while having to travel with my passport, take the plane, all that... I could easily live without going to Cuba every year, it would actually make my life a lot easier. Traveling aboard give my anxiety, as well as elevator doing downside for a reason I can't say if not you'll get the same disease, but not investing. I rock at that shit and money always come when I need it the most.

My non-registered portfolio closed today session at $121 842.13, my TFSA portfolio at $68 233.59, and my RRSP portfolio - stocks only - at $40 328.83. In the last post, I said I wanted to spot a stock and do a quick hit-and-run. Well, things are all coming in together and I had nothing to to do. It's, however, a bit unfortunate because I really like this stock but Agellan Commercial Real Estate Investment Trust (ACR.UN) no longer trades on the TSX. I have to say that the timing is absolutely perfect because I had spent quite some money in February! Since ACR.UN no longer trades on the TSX, all of my shares had been sold, and in result, I now have close to $1 200 in cash inside my TFSA portfolio. Nice! I am still thinking about it, but because I spend a lot of money in February, I am going to have withdrawn the 1.2k inside my non-registered portfolio and use the money to pay down my credit card. For March, I plan to save in the $3 200 - there're 3 paychecks coming in!

In the hunt for more fabulous Canadian stocks on Stockopedia

Its look for me like the TSX is looking forward to sit its pretty assets in the 16 000 points. Or at less she's desperately trying. When I have this kind of good vibes coming from my favorite stock market, I try to target stocks that could be good for a quick hit-and-run complete show off. If unfortunately you are not a regular reader and I have no clue of what a hit-and-run sex move is, its quite simple: a hit-and-run is when you buy a stock, hold in only for a little while and quickly sell to cash in a profit. It could be seem as an easy thing, but its a strategic move and risk are moderate. I personally try to catch stock with a good overall chart, and of which I have an appeal. What I am looking for is a godd quality stock that trade a good price, and that have chances to close on a higher note in the next couple days. Its always hard to predict the direction of a stock. Past results are no proof of future good results, but I base myself on good past result, crossing everything I can in the hope of good future results. And I have to say, this way work well like magic for me.

Currently, I don't have any stock pick yet in order to proceed with the perfect hit-and-run move that could only blow your mind, but I just cannot help it anyway, I am just such a great stock pickers (thank you Stockopedia). A little while back, I had introduced you to a special stock: Pollard Banknote (PBL). I could easily see PBL inside my portfolio as a long term investment. This is the kind of baby that I like. Its quite strange, I had forgot the name of the stock, but I had a feeling of it - and since my post are never too long - I find back PBL on my blog, right on here :-)

I also have a thing these days for MTY Food Inc. (MTY). I am the search of the perfect hit-and-run stock, but among the way this evening I made a few interesting finding, always on Stockopedia:
SIR Royalty Income Fund (SRV.UN) - you may want to check this one out! JUICY DIVIDEND, CHEAP STOCK, GREAT CHART. I think I am in love. And if you belive its not possible to fall for a stock, you are wrong. I love all of my stocks from the real bottom of my heart, of a pure money love. Let see if I can find anything else on Stockopedia this evening. Sorry, its about all you are getting from me for today.

With a TSX at 16 000 points, will Jamieson Wellness Inc. (JEWEL) in for more pain?

I just arrived yesterday for a one week vacation in Holguin. And while I was away and out of reach from any free wireless connection, the TSX decided to wake up and make its favorite investor - and that being me - happy! When I arrived at Montreal Trudeau airport, I was quite shocked to see my TSX close to the 16 000 points. And today, the TSX did even better. Those newest 16 031.24 points are quite impressive. Go go go!

Today, my non-registered portfolio closed today session at $122 558.41, my TFSA portfolio at $68 557.54, and my RRSP portfolio, stocks only, at $40 446.95. I currently estimate my net worth to be in the $215 000. This is increased of close to 9k compared to my net value of January 18 of this year! If I continue this way, I will be in the 300k net worth by the end of the year. But of course, we all know that the stock market is made of ups and downs, so I am just enjoying the moment. If it's a bit pushy to target the 300k for the end of the year, it's certainly more realistic to set myself ready for the 250k. It's only a question of number. 200k, 250k or 300k... I am just to use to this game, but the $300 000 is a real turn on and I want it. This is an easy game.

Currently, the only dark shadow I am experiencing is with my investment in Jamieson Wellness Inc. (JEWEL). I am currently experiencing a little loss on this one and I am not loving it. Usually, JEWEL is of no pain at all. I am closely watching it, trying to figure out what is next for this dear stock. The next couple of weeks are going to be quite busy as I need to get my 2018 tax declaration done, among other things.

My newest find on Stockopedia: Allied Properties Real Estate Investment Trust (AP.UN)

Its been a while since I didn't pick any new interesting stocks on Stockopedia, but I made a good catch this evening. I found Allied Properties Real Estate Investment Trust (AP.UN). I already have many REIT stocks in my portfolio, so this finding is not super wow, but I wouldn't mind investing a cute small amount of money in AP.UN. AP.UN has everything I need:

A strong overall chart:

Clearly, AP.UN suffers from the 2008 stock crash, but had recover ever since and its current 2019 value exceed its 2008 pre market stock crash. Allied Properties Real Estate Investment Trust has  good 3.3% dividend yield. AP.UN basically has everything that I like, the only problem is that AP is another REIT stocks.

A 15 700 points TSX and a $211 000 net worth

Today had been quite a good day for the TSX. I was really impressed by those healthy 15 700 points of today. So far, February had been an easy month and let's just hope it will continue this way. Its busy at work, so having an easy stock market to handle make things much smoother. Everything cannot be rocky all the time, at the same time. A 15 700 points, the 16 000 points are not really far away. 

In those good time, my non-registered portfolio closed today session at $122 111.16, my TFSA portfolio at $67 123.24, and my RRSP portfolio, stocks only, at $40 281.46. Currently, I estimate my net worth to be in the $211 000. Its mean that I am now only missing $89 000 to be sitting on a 300k net value. It will eventually happen, it's just a matter of time.

What a good surprise: looking like Aphria Inc. (APH) is getting back in the game. In order to keep my spirit, I must admit that I had given up on all hopes my for APH shares to ever go up again. I would have Aphria Inc. shares in my portfolio as a remembered that despite being a really great investor, I can sometimes be suck at it. But no no no. Mommy is too great! Currently, all Canadian pot stocks are kind of on an edge. However, I don't recommend investing in pot stocks, it's too volatile. And please remember my story with APH. 

Just in case - but it shouldn't be the case - that you don't read each of my precious posts on this blog, when I first invested in APH, I bought stocks, and I sell them not too long after, making a profit in the process. I was happy of course. But then, I decided to invest again in APH, and its when I got caught in. I could no longer sell Aphria Inc. at profit! And I still can't, I stuck with it. I have to hold on to it until it completely recovers. So learn from my mistake. Once your out of a deal stay out, don't get back in just for the heck of it, especially in the case of riskier investments.

Meet two of my calm soldier stocks: ACR.UN and GRT.UN

I can gladly say that I didn't spend any money yesterday, and the same thing for today, so I can really say that I save $929.11 for the month of January, and that amount doesn't include the dividend earn in Januray so it's quite good. I am about to book my excursions for my upcoming trip to Cuba. I will be spending something like probably $250. I have over $300 cash in my TFSA portfolio that I can use to cover that expense if needed. I plan to catch up in March with my saving.

On this last day of January 2019, my non-registered portfolio closed the session at $120 479.74, my TFSA portfolio at $66 474.49 and my RRSP portfolio at $40 098.52. Those 15 540.6 points are quite healthy. My precious NFI Group Inc. (NFI) stocks are on now better days. It was scared to see my NFI stocks going lower than $29 per share, but it eventually rebounded. Other than NFI, I have many other great things going on in my portfolio right now. My Pembina Pipeline Corporation (PPL) investment is not far away from the $30 000 value.

Inside my TFSA, I have a couple of calm soldiers: Agellan Commercial Real Estate Investment Trust (ACR.UN) and Granite Real Estate Investment Trust (GRT.UN), among others. But when I think of "calm soldier", I essentially think of ACR.UN and GRT.UN. Calm soldier stocks are stocks that stay relatively at the same value, no matter what the stock market goes up or down. In my TFSA portfolio, however, my investment in GRT.UN is about to change of category from "calm soldier" to a new designation that came directly from Stockopedia name "super stock". The reason why is that my Granite Real Estate Investment Trust (GRT.UN) stock gains 7% in my portfolio! So this is leaving me with one single known calm soldier. I am happy with this progression with GRT.UN.

This is actually making me think about my investment in Richards Packaging Income Fund (RPI.UN). Following the acquisition of RPI.UN inside my RRSP portfolio, it took some time, but unrealized capital gains finally kick in. And I say unrealized simply because I am a gain on a stock that I didn't sell and that I don't plan to sell either way.

My new President’s Choice Financial Mastercard credit card

Its now official, my investments in both Canadian Imperial Bank Of Commerce (CM) and TFI International Inc. (TFII) had now been transferred over my TFSA portfolio. My non-registered portfolio closed today session at $119 592.48, my TFSA portfolio at $66 253.64 and my RRSP portfolio, stocks only, at $40 066.68.

Yesterday, I published my expenses for the month of January, despite the fact that the month of January is not exactly past yet. But this was strategic, that way, I won't be pending money for the next two days and it's all good. At least, there are only two days left.

I had applied in order to get a President’s Choice Financial Mastercard credit card. This will replace my BMO Mastercard. I was collecting AirMiles with my BMO credit card, but I don't like AirMiles anymore. I find PC Optimum program being much more interesting and more rewarding. By applying to the PC Financial, I will receive 75 000 points, which is a credit to buy $75 worth of stuff, this will help to compensate for the purchase of my suitcase in January.

I am now on a more frugal mode and I am not scared of paying my expenses with my new credit card.

The month of January 2019: budget in review

Good past Friday for the TSX. My non-registered portfolio closed at $125 241.11, my TFSA portfolio at $59 940.28, and my RRSP portfolio, stocks only, at $39 843.56. I had proceeded with the contribution in kind of my Canadian Imperial Bank Of Commerce (CM) and TFI International Inc. (TFII) shares from my non-registered to my TFSA portfolio. Today was even better, the TSX closed at 15 378.62 points. And today, my non-registered portfolio closed the session at $125 506.45, my TFSA portfolio at $59 851.50, and my RRSP portfolio at $39 995.58

My margin usage is currently at $45 443.10. Last week, we had extreme bad weather in Montreal and on that bad weather day, I had no choice other than to go work at my workplace. It was awful, it was raining and the sidewalks were disgusting, with an unhappy mix of ice and rain, just enough to make me feel completely miserable. I already had not so great waterproof winter boots, I knew that, but I actually received the confirmation of it on that day. I decided to bough a new pair of winter boots, I got Sorel ones, which cost $200 after taxes. And I also had to buy a pair of socks... But the good news is, those Sorel boots are probably going to last me for at least 4, if not 5 years. It's unfortunate because its kind of destroy my super tight budget for this month. I had worked super hard at spending little as possible, allowing myself just a few coffees and for the eating out, just a few small sweet treats.

Here are what had been my fix expenses for January:
Cable & Internet: $98.18
Gym: $14.38
Banking fees: $3.45
Insurance: $7
CraveTV: $11.49
Cell: $40.24
Rent: $680
Total: $854.74

At $98.18, that cable and Internet bill is quite high. And it was actually almost the double of that amount in December! I got f by Videotron, I was promised a $71.79 deal, but my first bill didn't match at all that amount, and same thing for the second bill. I had to call Videotron to fix that mess, I asked them to listen to the telemarketer call that I received, I told them how pissed off I was not to be giving what I was promised. I finally was offered a deal, but the offer I got is only valid until May, and after that, I will cancel my cable. I really got fool by Videotron and I should have never had accepted the telemarketer offers for the cable. I should know better. I didn't respect my own rule: never trust Quebeckers, too many of them are big time liars. Learn from my mistakes. Anyway, don't worry, I won't ever let any Quebeckers mess up with me. I am a super mean wild bitch and I hate those morons next to their bones. I should received a credit on the next cable and Internet bill, so my fix expenses should get lower next month. I also cancel my subscription to CraveTV, but it's on until February 22.

There had been 5 long weeks in January. Two expenses kick in and completely destroyed my really tight budget: I bought a suitcase at $81.92, and as you know now, a pair of winter boots at $202.34. But both items should last for a couple of years. It doesn't take much to imbalance a budget, that's why it's important to spend less on things you have control over.

Other expenses for January:
Suitcase: $81.92
Sorel winter boots: $202.34
Taxi: $15 - on that extreme bad weather day on January 24, I call a taxi to go back home from work
Socks: $10.35
Credit card payment: $20.47
Grocery for January: $204.25
Coffees and eating out for January: $53.73
Sunscreen for Cuba: $14.45
Stuff for Cuba, medication: $34.08
Little gifts for Cuba: $43.98
Laundry tickets: $40 (for 20 loads)
Optometrist: $50 - ($20 return from insurance): $30
Qtip: $1.43
Mouthwash: $15.57 (I got 4, it should last for a little while)
Coffee filter: $2.50
Donation to OSM: $10
Birthday card to a relative: $1
Duplicate keys: $5.98
9V battery for my alarm clock: $3.50
Dishcloths: $2.88
Kitchen tool: $2.87
Shampoo: $5.74
2 blush powders: $35.62
F pads: $14.92 
Nair: $24.81
Gap clothes: $51.73
Total: $929.12

Total money spend in January, 2019: $1 783.86
-$92.50 (exchange of rolling pennies at the bank) :-)
TOTAL: $1 690.89
Money save: $929.11, and that amount doesn't include my dividend income!
Not too bad, let see now if you can do better!

I wish I could say that I am going to save more money in February, but sometime in February, I already have a trip plan to Cuba.

A creamy caramelized onion soup for the cold weather

These days, the weather is really cold in Montreal. This evening, I cook for the second time the most delicious soup of all: creamy caramelized onion soup from Trois fois par jour. The first time I made this soup, I didn't take time to caramelized my onions and the soup had a real heavy taste of onions. Fact is, caramelized onions don't taste onion. :-)

You may have notice, this past weekend, I updated my portfolio. On date of January 18, my net worth was of $206 278.84. My margin debt is now at $45 356.10. Today again, the TSX closed the session on a positive note. With those 15 354.16 points, my non-registered portfolio closed the day at $125 814.01, my TFSA at $59 854.87 and my RRSP portfolio, stoks only, at $39 653.55. My net worth is now probably at 207k, slowly moving forward the $300 000, only missing... $93 000. Currently, the most exciting thing that is going on is the upcomig extradition of Meng Wanzhou to the USA. This had last for too long now. I just don't understand why that Chinese woman is still in Canada. The rich Chineses appear to me as being really arrogant. They are not above the law. We don't need Huawei to build our future 5G network.

Another super great for the TSX! YEAH!! :-)

Its been another great day for the TSX! I am happy, don't get me wrong, but this is not the usual natural thing for the TSX to just keep being in the positive zone for many many days in a row. I never experimented something like it before. Not that I can remember. This is quite exciting, my non-registered closed today session at $125 326.73, my TFSA portfolio is now at $59 291.21 and my RRSP portfolio at $39 607.83. I had all my eyes on my New Flyer Industries Inc. (NFI)today and it seems like its situation is getting stabilize for now, but tomorrow is another day. Those who had to sell off NFI are just a bunch of not smart losers.

In front of that TSX that just keeps giving and giving, I am just asking for another good day tomorrow, so I can update my portfolio page this weekend and look outrageously good. And things are only getting better knowing that tomorrow is pay day.

I still doing great with my budget. This week so far, I only bought one coffee, and it was a small one... The less you spend, the less you are tempted to spend because you know too well that at the end, you'll win the jackpot at the end of the month. Including my dividend income, its close to $2 000 per month that I can save. That make a lot of money. If I can reduce my margin debt, which is currently of $47 000, in half, it would be great.

Another great thing when saving money become your newest obsession is that it really help with your diet, because you cannot eat out anymore, you can basically do nothing that involve spending money, so guess what, you lose weight in the process. That's what is hapenning for me. For the past couple years, I wasn't as severe as now about saving money, some months, I had several hundreds ad up on my credit card, but it was alays about an amount I could pay within  the month, but that being said, it was leaving me with little money left to save. The month of January is now even over yet that I feel a huge difference in almost everything. My sleep is better because I most of the time drink decaf coffee. And now, I drink water like if I would be living in the desert of Saudi Arabia. So just try to figure out what 2019 is going to be like.

Now, I am just wondering: can the TSX hit back the 16 000 points anytime soon? If so, I will cry of hapiness in front of my computer at work and no one will understand what's going on. It's all the fault of the TSX who's playing with my nerves.

A rough day for my precious darling New Flyer Industries Inc. (NFI)

Its been a rough day today for a stock that I now had been holding on since 2011 in my non-registered portfolio: New Flyer Industries Inc. (NFI). I had been watching my NFI closely, and I decided to sell if the stocks were going to reach the $28 per share... It didn't, so I am keeping New Flyer Industries Inc. (NFI) in my portfolio for now. It's sad to see one of my favorite stock going down. At this point, I am affected of course, but not that much since I had bought my NFI shares several years ago, when NFI was trading under the $12 per share. I will again watch on closely NFI tomorrow.

Bad day for my NFI baby, but today was not a bad day at all for Goodfood Market Corp. (FOOD). I must admit, I am a bit in a hurry now to sell this one at profit. Its been a little since I haven't traded anything and the need remains. Patience is everything and doesn't expect the big bucks to come as easily as before. I am just in the need to do something. While trying to figure it out, my non-registered portfolio closed today session at $124 191, my TFSA portfolio at $58 956.97 and my RRSP portfolio at $39 392.05. I am really happy with those numbers and of course, I am just hoping for more gains to come. I would like to post an update of my portfolio if the TSX close on a positive note this Friday. Only 2 days to go. Little gains, by little gains, the TSX is going to get back in the 16 000 points sometime soon, hopefully.

Today, I was impressed by BNN Bloomberg Market Call. I actually agree with everything that Robert McWhirter, president of Selective Asset Management. Two stocks that I hold: Emera Inc. (EMA) and Northland Power Inc. (NPI) were on Robert McWhirter's top picks today. His third pick was Rogers Communications Inc. (RCI.B).

Nutrien Ltd. (NTR) is just a stock, not a top winner pick stock

The TSX finally did something I had been waiting for a long time now. Its been a tough road, but those newest 15 046.28 points are certainly making me happy. My non-registered portfolio closed today session at a great $124 251.45, my TFSA portfolio at $58 879, and my RRSP portfolio at $39 227.30. I now estimate my net worth to be in the $203 000. Its official, I am now back in the game so just watch me! :-) It's quite a long road for recovery, but now at least I am only missing $97 000 to hit on the magic $300 000 net worth... 97k is a good amount, but if the TSX plays in my favor like it should, I have my chances to hit on the 300k, maybe in 2 years. Let's just hope for that.

Yesterday, I wrote a little about not being a fan of the tech sectors, but I am a fan of tech services, which is two different sectors in a way. CGI Group Inc. Class A Subordinate Voting Shares (GIB.A), that I hold in my RRSP portfolio, is certainly a top player, but unfortunately, CGI Group, despite being a top notch quality stock the way I love them, but doesn't pay any distribution at all. It's like holding on to some JFT Strategies Fund (JFS.UN) units, but in better because CGI is actually a stock that performs and deliver capital gain to its investor. JFS.UN is just another stock on the TSX that exists for investors who still belive in Jean-François Tardif, but shouldn't. Other than CGI, if you want something valuable playing in the tech sector, check out Calian Group Ltd. (CGY). I hold CGY in my TFSA portfolio. Susan Brunner recently posts a positive review of this awesome jewel. You need to be smart and use all of your good judgement. At first, social media stocks may seem appealing, but when you deep in, you get to understand what its bullshit, and Facebook is the perfect example of a really poor manage company that you shouldn't get any appeal to. Data users are being sell and no protected. Facebook publish fake news all year round and have no real intention to take care of business properly. But you shouldn't expect any better coming from Americans. In the other hand, companies that offer tech services like CGY and CGI, those are the real good companies in the tech sector to invest in.

Ofen, in case of mergers, the company that is being buy by another one usually register gain, commonly, becaus ethe other party too oftern offer more per shera than its current trading price. It happen really often, but in the case of Goldcorp Inc. (G), both G and Newmont Mining Corporation (NEM) had registered some loses following the big announcement. I was really tempt at first to acquire some G stocks, but because of the sector, I decided not too, and I am just really happy I didn't!! But anyway I wouldn't. The temptation last only for a few seconds. I am not a fan of the gold sector. Its better to explore the possibilities in other sectors.

Today, Ryan Bushell, president of Newhaven Asset Management was in the show Market Call of BNN Bloomberg. He has made good comments regarding Fortis Inc. (FTS), saying its a good stock for the long term, andthat FTS has increased its dividend over year and we are looking forward for more juicy dividend in the future. I agree with Ruan Bushell on Fortis Inc. (FTS). I had been holding to FTS since my early beginnings. Over the years, FTS had become a solid rock in my non-registered portfolio. Fortis is that kind of super easy stock to hold on to, with a solid chart that can only turn you on. Ryan Bushell, president of Newhaven Asset Management also covers my super precious Pembina Pipeline Corporation (PPL), another great stock of mine that he only could had good words for.

One of Ryan Bushell top pick stock is... Nutrien Ltd. (NTR). Really???!!!! Come on!

Personally, I had invested in Agrium years ago, but ever since Agrium merger with Potash had turn to become Nutrien Ltd. (NTR), I never EVER registered super great capital gainon NTR. With Agrium, everything was super easy smooth, I was on super great capital gains. But with NTR, I get nothing of that. And for that reason, I really dislike NTR. Nutrien Ltd. (NTR) is a little stock that like to play with my nerves. I really dislike NTR, BUT, I keep the few shares I have inside my TFSA portfolio for the simple and good reason that NTR establish a good diversity - in the potash sector - inside my portfolio. And other than that, Nutrien Ltd. (NTR) is not bringing anything good for me.

Knowing all that, why Ryan Bushell is a top stock pick of Ryan Bushell??!!!

Of, wait, you haven't heard the worst coming from Ryan Bushell: another top pick of his is Manulife Financial Corporation (MFC). But MFC overall chart is totally distusgting. And insurance stocks are pretty bad investment, you cannot have worst than MFC for your money.

At a point, I am having a blast with BNN Bloomberg. I just don't understand how Manulife Financial Corporation (MFC) can possibly be consider a to pick. Better stick to my blog for investment ideas, I much better than any of those so call managers. I am better than anyone.

Thisis basically what a 15 000 points have as effects on me. It's all it take.

I am back to my old 200k net worth!

Goodfood Market Corp. (FOOD) started the trading day on a positive note - the opening market at 9h30 is the perfect time to take a 15 minutes break from work to check out the market. Market openings are always important. I was hoping a bigger push coming from FOOD, but I guess, for now, its ok. I am still confident I may be able to register a capital gain on FOOD later on. It's just taking longer than anticipated. These days, better be patient and calm. Seem like the easy days are dead over for the TSX. Overall, I had an easy road despite the difficulties. I always got what I wanted. But this time, for the 300k net worth, I really will have to work harder this time. It a long long road just to reach out that net work. But the good news is: only $99 000 left to go! Goooooooooo!

Another good day for the TSX, we didn't gain many points, but at 14 975.53, we are certainly getting closer to the 15 000 points. It's also a long and painful road just to get all the way up there. My non-registered portfolio closed today session at $123 360.11, my TFSA portfolio at $58 491.17, and my RRSP portfolio at $38 852.36. Currently, I estimate my net worth to be in the $201 000. Its certainly getting better. Back on January 4th, I felt a bit pitty with my $191 009.83 net worth. It was a shock to see it being under the 200k. Donald Trump killed my dream of a 300k net worth in 2018, but now, he's burning up all of his government people. Trump is so rough and has no heart at all for his own people. I am pretty sure that many of them are dealing with financial difficulties right now, and it might be hard, especially for those who have children to take care of.

Lately, I had been writing more about saving than investing, but saving is quite important knowing I am trying to pay down my margin account usage and that I am trying to stop investing using my margin account. In order to stop investing using my margin money debt, its quite simple, I just need to add up to the saving. It's a deprivation that is serving me well.

Also today, the American Newmont Mining announced a $10 billion takeover of Goldcorp Inc. I have to say, I was tempted to jump in some Goldcorp Inc. (G) shares, but I didn't. I now listen to BNN Bloomberg, and I once heard someone saying something that makes a lot of sense to me: it's better to buy some ETF involved in gold rather than a company that is involved in gold. And this makes a lot of sense because the gold market is volatile and it's quite rough for the businesses out there who are involved in the gold sector. Have a look at Barrick Gold Corporation (ABX) chart to understand what I mean. ABX used to trade in the $5+ per share and currently, ABX is having big problems big time just to reach in the $20 per share. And ABX is not alone in this position, other great Canadian mining companies are having the same shock in their value and this is true for both silver and gold mining sectors.

That's why Goldcorp Inc. (G) is a big no-no for me. For me, its a no silver, no gold, no gas, and no tech. I, however, like the technology sector, but only in term of services. I am not a fan of social media junk, so no Facebook or Twitter shit stocks for me. But yes to tech services like CGY and CGI because those services are essential. And of course, I have both of those businesses in my portfolio because I am absolutely fabulous. Now, I only need the TSX to go back to its old 16 000 points. Its all I need to hit on the 300k net worth.
