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.
