Merry Christmas investors!

This is probably going to be my last post before Christmas, so I wish you all a Merry Christmas investors! The extremely cold weather of the past couple days is not helping the process. The end of the year is always quite busy so I had problem doing everything at the same time. So this is going to be a quick post.

Other than that, I don't have really anything new going on at this time. I had been following the situation in the US, with Trump facing what is being named as impeachment procedures. For now, Democrats win, but I am under the impression that Donald Trump impeachment is not going to happen.

Currently, my investment portfolio is doing quite well. My non-registered portfolio closed today session at $121,138.39, my TFSA portfolio at $83,273.96 and my RRSP portfolio at $47,955.82. My numbers are pretty much the same as they were back on November 15. My margin debt is currently at $50,060.69.

Pembina Pipeline Corporation (PPL) now had completed the acquisition of Kinder Morgan Canada Limited restricted voting shares (KML), but I still hold to my KML stocks in my portfolio. My Kinder Morgan Canada Limited restricted voting shares (KML) haven't transform yet into some Pembina Pipeline Corporation (PPL). I guess the migration could help to increased my dividend income, which is currently of an annual $9 042.60.

More free Enbridge Inc. (ENB) dividend candy to enjoy! MERRY CHRISTMAS BITCH ;-)

Yesterday, a stock of mine that I had been holding on tight since the early beginnings of my really amazing portfolio, Enbridge Inc. (ENB), came up with a big announcement that had made my day: just more and more juicy dividend free money! Yeah! This is Christmas before Christmas for smart investors to enjoy. This news came at the right time, just when Ia m a bit fooling around, asking myself if I should sell a few of my stocks, including CSW.A... I didn't proceed with any move yet, since I am so lost. But I just know what I need to do: to burn myself at the gym, which is something I didn't do in a little while - actually since probably October. But the gym is always there for mommy so I will be hitting on, I had been kind of missing it without knowing. When I am starting at my portfolio, wondering if I should sell this or this... got to move!

Enbridge Inc. (ENB) had made the Dividend Girl really happy with their 9.8% dividend distribution increased! This came at the right time because just a few days ago, I had updated my dividend income sheet for the year ahead, just to have an idea of what my upcoming dividend will be like. It's something I said many times before, but I will write it again: while investing, don't just focus on the dividend income. Holding high-quality stocks is certainly what is more important, to ensure you don't experiment capital loss along the way. One of my most successful stock - CGI Group Inc. Class A Subordinate Voting Shares (GIB.A) - is absolute damn perfection, however, GIB.A doesn't pay a dime in terms of dividend distribution. That is a complete lack of generosity. But some stocks, like GIB.A don't care about their investors. Another really wealthy sexy stock that is highly successful, but are cheap mean interm of dividend is one of the only two US stocks that I hold: Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (BRK.B). Berkshire Hathaway Inc. doesn't care about their investors. And Berkshire Hathaway Inc. certainly knows that investors will invest in their company, even if they don't pay any dividend distribution.

With the dividend increase of yesterday regarding ENB, my overall dividend income is now at a good $9 042.60.

Welcome in my TFSA portfolio Alimentation Couche-Tard Inc. (ATD.A)!

Things are not too bad for the TSX right now. We closed yesterday's session below 17,000 points, but not that far away. With Justin Trudeau playing Mr. Dumb-Dumb at the NATO summit in the back of Trump, we might get stuck in a bad turn at some point. And who knows, we may have Donald Trump in the portrait for another 4 years. I wasn't surprised to see Trudeau socializing with Marcon among others - and with the little new UK Prime Minister, a player among them all who will bring the United Kingdom right next to nothing soon enough. Justin Trudeau doesn't have the intelligence it takes to understand that he needs to socialize with the USA in priority because our economy directly depends on that unconditional friendship. France and the UK can easily be left behind. Justin Trudeau should be standing down to his knees in front of Donald Trump, begging for forgiveness with tears in his eyes.

Donald Trump is absolutely correct about Justin Trudeau. Justin Trudeau is definitively a two-faced, and not only a two-faced, but a two-faced Quebec idiot. Still, I am happy that everyone now knows the true nature of Justin Trudeau, but on the other hand, the release of that video is for me, a non-patriotic action. By releasing that video, CBS declared itself a non-patriotic organization. We are losing our face in front of Trump because of the release of that video. CBS didn't think of the consequences for our nation, and that's also a shame. Just to add something fancy to this toxic climate between the US and Canada, our economy lost over 70,000 jobs in November. That's quite bad news. We had been waiting for a recession to happen, and it might happen sooner than later. Just to add a little more stress, some trade negotiations are still going on between Canada, Mexico, and the US, which I wasn't aware of and I don't exactly understand the nature. I taught everything was fine. There's always something that points out when it's the less expecting. Just don't expect Justin Trudeau to be the man of the situation. In times of great needs, Quebeckers are always the weakest ones. 

End of the year season if always feel sort of an actual release. For me, 2020 is going to be a special year, as it's the years when I will be turning 40. I don't have any problem aging, especially since I don't look my age. My only "aging" problem that I am currently facing is a few white hairs here and there, but I am calmly fixing the problem with some blond highlights and no more problemo. I actually like this time of year because the feeling of starting - all over again - a new year, comes with many promises, like the possibility to get on a higher net worth, make new great investments, have more money in the bank, etc, etc, etc.

Talking money, my non-registered portfolio closed Friday's session at $118,956.13, my TFSA portfolio at $83,709.87 and my RRSP portfolio at $48,206.02. Yesterday, I place a little investment in Alimentation Couche-Tard Inc. (ATD.A), with the cash money that came from previous dividend distribution. I am happy with this little investment. I may be in the mood for more trading moves as I am getting mentally ready to closed in the year 2019 and guess what, in 2020, a new decade is kicking on. 

Corby Distilleries Limited (CSW.A) had been part of my non-registered portfolio since the early beginning. Back in the days - over a decade ago - CSW.A was a Derek Foster stock. And what Derek Foster hold, I usually hold too, it is really that simple. On date of today, I am on a profit of +44.51% on Corby Distilleries Limited (CSW.A). However, CSW.A is facing some difficulties. I am thinking about my options on that one.

Thinking about Alimentation Couche-Tard Inc. (ATD.A) as my next investment

This was going to happen one day or another, but it's too bad that it's happening now. The TSX closed today's session below the 17,000 majestic points. My non-registered portfolio closed today session at $117,442.14, my TFSA portfolio at $83,716.55, and my RRSP portfolio at $48,047.63.

I hope you had enjoyed Black Friday - I always do! This year, I scored a winter coat and boots, a scarf (to match the new coat of course), a nice black blouse, two t-shirts, some Yves Rocher beauty products, a pair of Michael Kors booties, a Michael Kors wallet (I was getting tired of my big Aldo plastic wallet) and it's about it ;-). As you can see, I had happily spent some money. I enjoyed Black Friday every single year in Montreal because for Boxing Day, I am at home in New Brunswick for the Christmas holidays. In my little town, there's nothing much that happens for the Boxing Day: all stores are actually closed on that day that is supposed to be THE happiest shopping day of the year!!! So no Boxing Day for the Dividend Girl. Sniff, sniff.

I am now close to $600 in cash inside my TFSA portfolio, that cash is coming from dividend distribution. I am thinking about investing in Alimentation Couche-Tard Inc. (ATD.A). I used to hold on to some ATD.A stocks.
