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.

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.

Thank you
