My first investments with National Bank Direct Brokerage: welcoming North West Company Inc. (NWC) and AirBoss of America Corp. (BOS)

I don't know if you have noticed, but my blog feature in Rob Carrick's personal finance reading list in The Globe and Mail, wow wow wow!!!

Thanks for reading, Rob Carrick :-)

The problem I described in the previous post regarding New Brunswick's Travel Registration Program got resolved quite quickly for my old folks. Now, I need to pack my stuff for the next 6 to 7 months, which is ongoing. While getting ready, I bought the latest Edith Butler CD. You might want to listen to the following, even if you don't understand French, because it's really good and I keep listening to it on and on and on! My old folks won't believe their ears.

That's the kind of music real New Brunswickers listen to and enjoy. The real deal. Only good investors can enjoy real music.

I managed to finally make my first investments with National Bank Direct Brokerage. I made two small investments. For my TFSA portfolio, I invested in a few shares of North West Company Inc. (NWC). For my RRSP portfolio, I invested in AirBoss of America Corp. (BOS). I used to have North West Company Inc. (NWC) in my investment portfolio a couple of years ago, so nothing new here, but I wanted to invest in something in order to receive my $135 +taxes credit inside my new TFSA portfolio at National Bank Direct Brokerage.

I also wanted to receive a $135 + taxes for my RRSP portfolio. It's basically why I invested in AirBoss of America Corp. (BOS) for my RRSP portfolio. BOS is a Jean-François Tardif's stock. In Stockopedia, AirBoss of America Corp. (BOS) is well-ranked. AirBoss of America Corp. (BOS) is also on several Stockopedia's screens, which is a good thing in favor of BOS. So I decided, why not? BOS pays a dividend distribution below 2%, but at least they pay a little something.

I updated my dividend income and so far - excluding the dividend earns inside my RRSP - is of $8,443.28, which is about $703 a month. I like this amount because it covers my rent + a small coffee for the month :). I am keeping my apartment in Montreal even if I am moving away to New Brunswick for a couple of months.

My non-registered Canadian margin and US accounts haven't been transferred over National Bank Direct Brokerage yet. I hope it gets done in the next few days before I leave for New Brunswick. So far, my TFSA and RRSP portfolios got transferred without any mistakes over National Bank Direct Brokerage. I prefer that TD Direct take all the time they need in order to transfer my last two accounts correctly.
