Historic day for investors: Canadian Imperial Bank Of Commerce (CM) undergoes a 2 for 1 stock split

I had a super nice weekend. I went to the beach this Saturday, and on Sunday, I went picking up fiddleheads (or ferns if you prefer, you'll see a pic of what I mean below) super early in the morning and I spent the whole afternoon sleeping, all burnout that I was because I didn't have my beauty sleep... The outdoors are changing quickly in New Brunswick. It's a lot greener now. The scenery is looking nice.

And the fiddleheads:

This past Friday, the TSX had regain some valuable points. Today again, the TSX surprised me, gaining a bit more than 100 points. We are still far away from the old 21,000+ points value, but if we have to remain in the 20,000 points for the present time, I will be able to deal with this without any problems. My non-registered portfolio closed today's session at $145,003.55, my US portfolio at $4,967.05, my RRSP portfolio at $64,117.53, and my TFSA portfolio at $120,285.39. My stock portfolios gain over $3,000. It had been a nice day.

Despite the market super volatility, some stocks of mine are doing well and many of them had announced great news lately, including some dividend increases. K-Bro Linen Inc. (KBL) is another of those stocks that only had good news for its investors.

Today was a historic day for Canadian Imperial Bank Of Commerce (CM) investors. CM finally undergoes a 2 for 1 stock split. Personally, I adore stock splits. They're just an easy way to see your investment soaring in value with ease. Today, Canadian Imperial Bank Of Commerce (CM) stock gain a good 1.042%, and that's only the beginning. I am waiting for my paycheck this Friday and I am thinking about investing in some CM stocks, inside my non-registered portfolio, to help my margin breath.

The problem I have with my margin is that I always worry about it. And I cannot maximize my TFSA because I worry that my margin account might be in help of a bit of money to survive and I am not totally wrong with that. I don't mind.

A few days ago, I wrote about National Bank Direct Brokerage which now is offering a lending program. I haven't been able to find much information online, but I had find this YouTube video:

I don't understand what it is, but I see it as a way to earn an extra income, at no risk other than the one known as being a regular investor who holds some stocks that are trading over the TSX... so why now? I have to take care of this tomorrow. We'll see if I qualify for National Bank Direct Brokerage's Fully-Paid Securities Lending Program. 

Those are my last couple of days in New Brunswick before I leave for Montreal.
