My complete investment portfolio review, from 2008 to 2022

The Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) ended today's trading session with a strong finish, closing at 20,767.38 points. My personal investment portfolios, including my non-registered, US, RRSP stocks-only, and TFSA portfolios, closed the day with values of $147,346.97, $5,166.98, $64,067.71, and $126,283.65, respectively.

As a seasoned investor since 2008, I've had the opportunity to weather the 2008 stock market crash and come out on top. My investment philosophy is centered around investing in high-quality, conservative stocks that can weather market volatility. An example of such a stock is Richards Packaging Income Fund (RPI.UN), a boring yet solid stock in the industrial sector.

To start 2023 off right, I recently published a comprehensive review of my 14-year investment journey since 2008. In this review, I analyze the returns of each stock in my different portfolios, giving readers the opportunity to benefit from my experience.

My highest return came from my investment in Canadian National Railway Company (CNR), which generated a +304.14% return in my non-registered portfolio. Despite not taking dividends into account, CNR is still a solid stock, one that Bill Gates himself is said to have invested in at one point. As a conservative investor, I hold CNR in both my non-registered and TFSA portfolios, where I have gained +108.37%.

My second-highest gainer is TFI International Inc. (TFII), with a +250.50% return in my TFSA portfolio. I discovered this stock through Stockopedia, as well as other great Canadian stocks such as Richards Packaging Income Fund (RPI.UN), Toromont Industries Ltd. (TIH), and Park Lawn Corporation (PLC) in my RRSP portfolio. Although I recently canceled my annual Stockopedia subscription due to cost constraints, I still plan on re-subscribing for a monthly plan later in the year.

I also registered impressive gains from investments in Methanex Corporation (MX) +217.78%, Enbridge Inc. (ENB) +65.51%, Pembina Pipeline Corporation (PPL) +64.74%, and TC Energy Corporation (TRP) +32.73%. Although I've never invested large sums at once, my portfolio has steadily gained value over time, thanks to my exposure to the oil sector.
