A word or two about finding new investment ideas

It's so hard these days to be an investor! I remembered the "old days", but I won't name them as "good old days" when I first started my investment journey. Everything was new and fun. And I had plenty of investment dreams. Shortly after came the 2008 stock crash. But it didn't stop me from investing in stocks. During that time, I invested in FTS, CNR, BNS, MX and so many other great stocks that I still own today. With time, the most difficult part had become to find new stocks to invest in. At a point, it's become a bit of an obsession. However, over the years, I had calmed down. And among the way, I had been offered Stockopedia on a silver plate.

It can be quite difficult to be an investor. Yes, we have Derek Foster, Susan Bunner, which are my main 2 individual sources. Before, I had Jean-François Tardif, but he's not around much anymore and his JFT Strategies Fund (JFS.UN) is really not a good fund to invest your money in. You can check out the section "Argent" from La Presse, or wait for Richard Dufour to come with the next best thing. Or read The Globe and Mail, Yahoo Finance, or the Financial Post... From my experience, the regular press is not exactly a good source of information on how to target your next best thing. In the past, I had found SIS by reading Richard Dufour, I own him that one, but other than that, I never really get any extraordinary stock by reading the regular press. Other than Derek Foster and Susan Brunner, I don't really trust nobody. I never came across a blog and told myself: wowwwww, I am going to follow this one, and I absolutely know for sure that I won't be wasting my time.  Unfortunately, I am standing alone, or almost because of who do you want me to get really good investment ideas, if it's not me? Isn't the reason why you are fooling around here? Fact is, Quebeckers are not good investors, or, like Jean-François Tardif, they don't last long, but New Brunswickers are for sure. We are simply the best at handling this kind of shit party. Who else can I be other than a great New Brunswicker. You simply cannot make it without me.

At a point, you may ask yourself, ok but what's the fuss about getting a new investment idea. Why do you always something new? Well, it's just an idea of my own, in order to not miss any great opportunity that may come by. By pushing myself in that direction, I made really good investment "discovery" by my own, most of them where actually find on Stockopedia: Park Lawn Corporation (PLC), Toromont Industries Ltd (TIH), Calian Group Ltd. (CGY), Granite Real Estate Investment Trust (GRT.UN), Cargojet Inc. (CJT), TFI International Inc. (TFII) and Brookfield Asset Management Inc. Class A Limited Voting Shares (BAM.A) - those are stocks that, if I remembered correctly, I had found on Stockopedia. When I find a new stock, I am usually pretty good at telling right away from where that super great investment idea is coming from, from which source.
