Happy Just Energy Income Fund dividend

I received my Just Energy Income Fund (JE.UN) dividend on today. I had received 20.87$ and I earn one extra unit of JE.UN. I now own 203 units of Just Energy Income Fund (JE.UN). I just find out that Sprott Inc. (SII) is paying a dividend on August 28. I am going to received 12.50$. It’s going to make a nice little extra as payment for my TD credit line. Otherwise, I €am doing a crazy shift tomorrow as overtime is available, but just for tomorrow… I am doing from 9am to midnight. It’s going to be crazy. But bad news, I am out of work at my weekend job for approximately 1 month. In the meantime, I am certainly going to look for a new job.. And guess what, my Google AdSense income is up to 30.77$... Mix of good and bad news today. Going to bed... This weekend is going to be great. HubPages articles and blogging and maybe Julie & Julia movie.

Dealing with debts and broker accounts

I didn’t visit HubPages for very long last night. I have to wake up early this morning. My tiny apartment was in need of a good cleaning. Now it’s done. I just have a lot of laundry to do lol. Everyday life is boring like that. And of course, when I wake up, I went to see my stock portfolio online. At 1:40PM, my portfolio of stocks and units is at 23 089.84$. I was afraid to see it lose some value again. But I still didn’t receive my Just Energy Income Fund (JE.UN) dividend. So I am still waiting.

I should receive a 700$ paycheck this evening. The money is going to be applied as payment on my credit line. I have 4 813.02$ on my TD credit line. And 2 675.53$ TD Visa at 3.99%. In about 2 weeks, I will transfer the debt I have on my TD Visa over RBC Visa, so I can received the 2.99% in interest rate for a little while, until I get a third job or something.

I call TD Waterhouse yesterday to find out if it was possible to turn non-RRSP investment in stocks or units into RRSP, without having to proceed with a sell first and I was told I could do so, that I don't need to sale.... I also call Scotia itrade. Now, my problem is I want to turn my investments into RRSP, but TD Waterhouse is going to charge me 20$ per year for an RRSP account. This is so unfair. It's not enough for them to be charging be 29$ per trade o is it 27$ I have a blank. This year, I don't want to pay any taxes. And another question, does the dividend of a RRSP account need to remain the RRSP account or the dividend can be transfert outside the RRSP dividend? It's not something I want to do right now, but later on. Sooo confusing.

TSX crashing and I am at home doing nothing

Today, the TSX crash to 10 626 points.

Currently, my stocks and units portfolio value is of 2 2810.89$.

I reach 50 000$ value assets one time in my life, I just hope to reach over 50 000$ again in a near future.

Even with the few losses of today, my portfolio remains relatively stable.

I am surprise, Methanex Corporation (MX) remains at a powerful 18.48$ (12:47PM). I had purchased 100 stocks of Methanex Corporation a while ago at 15.79$ per stock. But shortly after I made the investment, Methanex price stocks went always lower than 15.79$. At a point, I was used to see Methanex Corporation under 15.79$.

Imagine my reaction when Methanex Corporation price rise: I simply couldn’t believe it. If Methanex Corporation remain up to 15.79$ per stock even when the TSX is loosing points, this mean that chance are, our Methanex Corporation will remain over 15.79$ in the upcoming week.

I lost a bit of gain today, because (again) of Timminco (TIM) who decide to go under 1.40$. Good news had been giving for Becancour facilities. Employers have back their jobs. I mean, this is so good news for Timminco. Should the price increase immediately? Well, it’s the opposite that is happening today. And I don’t even want to try to understand.

Sprott Inc. remains under 4$. Sprott is currently at 3.22$ (12:59PM). Here, what I supposed that happen is the following. Their star mutual fund Sprott Canadian Equity Fund had lost in value (in a half). I had invested a total of 7033.50$ in the Sprott Canadian Equity Fund. My goal was too see my investment double. But… guess what happen? I almost lost half of my money with Sprott Canadian Equity Fund. I won’t blame Eric Sprott but still… lol. Anyway, I didn’t lost it all, my investment with Sprott currently worth 4 038$. Not soo bad.

Another surprise: usually, when the TSX is loosing points, usually, it makes Pengrowth Energy Trust (PGF.UN) loosing value too. But right now, oh surprise, Pengrowth Energy Trust (PGF.UN) is at a relatively stable 9.11$. This is really good.

Right now, Livingston International Income Fund (LIV.UN) is at 5.40$ (1:18PM) and Yellow Pages Income Fund (YLO.UN) is at 5.06$ (1:18PM). I am surprise to see Livingston International Income Fund higher in price than Yellow Pages Income Fund. Earlier this year, Livingston International Income Fund (LIV.UN) had suspend their dividend payment. I just wonder when Livingston International Income Fund (LIV.UN) will pay again dividend. I would like that.

Dumont Nickel (DNI) is at 2 cents (1:19PM)…. When I will be able to sell Dumont Nickel (DNI) at 4 cents pe stock? Will the time will ever come? This was supposed to be my great penny stock trade. A penny stock trade that all went wrong lol. But I still own DNI, I waiting for its price to reach 4 cents… and than sell.

In the meantine, my little apartment is all crashy. I need a cleaner or I will have to do it myself lol.

Dividend, jobs and HubPages

I don’t know what’s going on; I didn’t receive my Just Energy Income Fund dividend yet. It’s really getting on my nerves and it’s quite stressful not to see it coming. Anyway, if I didn’t receive my Just Energy Income Fund dividend by next Monday, I am going to all TD Waterhouse and ask this simple question: where are my Just Energy Income Fund dividends? lol

I felt a bit better today after asking if I could follow my regular schedule at my evening job. I was told I could do my regular schedule anyway. This week, some hours were cut of my schedule and it make me feel bad, as I am not working this upcoming Saturday at my weekend job – and no one actually told me so. But it’s true they are facing a lack of work and maybe they are trying to give the maximum of hours to their full-time staff. I really don’t know what to think about it. Everything was going fine until this weekend. I got good nerves and can take a lot of stuff on my back but gees... after being working at my weekend job for more than 2 years now; I taught someone was going to show off just a bit more respect. But I shouldn’t ask to much coming from Quebeckers, shouldn’t I?

Anyway, I am not too sad because at least, I am working, I don’t have problem to pay my bills and ho, another thing, last week, I reach my first 50 000$ worth in assets. I was quite surprised when it happens, on August 5th. I wasn’t expecting it for this summer at all. It was a real surprise. And I was even able to go a bit further with the 50 073.91$ I was able to reach.

At least, I was able to reach one my goal. My other goal was to reach 2 000$ value in dividend income by the end of the summer. I probably won’t be able to reach this goal unless the companies I invested in decide to increase their dividend. Another goal of mine is to make 200$ per month from Google AdSense lol. At least, this summer, I reach at least one of my goals.

I am doing kind of ok on HubPages. My Google AdSense is up to 30.72$, up to 24 cents… But HubPages definitely worth it. With my 2 jobs, I don’t have too much time to spend on HubPages and writing just one article take me just forever. But I am working very hard at it. The most difficult part comes from the fact that the earnings are quite low for so much work. But still, without it, I wouldn’t probably see my AdSense rise of about 4.72$. The best way is to remain positive. I mostly see HubPages as a potential money maker. Part of the difficulty come from my English skills, maybe a bit too low to write good contents, but that never stops me from writing on HubPages, but it did stop me on Associates Content. Like I can fight as long as I want but… you know, come a time a girl cannot go through it lol.

So I wasn’t able to get published on Associated Content. HubPages work great for me. My everyday life slows me down on HubPages. It’s difficult to work, have a life and trying to make money online. And sometimes, I just don’t feel like writing nothing at all, but it never last for long. Trying to make money online is among most of the difficult thing I ever went through of my life, but we’ll see if I can go through this.

Right now, I taught that maybe instead of spending so much of my time working for nothing, I should begin my search for a day-time job. I might move forward since my weekend job so difficult. I really need money.

Looking for upcoming grow, massive $$$

It’s seem like I am working this weekend. The value of my stock portfolio is up to 33$. And there’s definitely place for more growing. If the TSX keep gaining points, my portfolio will definitely gain in value. And the money I once lost with Timminco and Sprott will only be a souvenir. Not that I am expecting Sprott and Timminco to gain in value. But other stocks and units of my portfolio will.

Funny fact about Timminco (TIM): At the request of Market Surveillance, on behalf of the Toronto Stock Exchange, it’s been announced that Timminco has not been involved in any transactions that could help Timminco to gain value. Earlier his week, the price of Timminco gain 0.14 cents and had reached 1.47$ per stock. But not to forget, Timminco had received money from Quebec province – for once, Quebec province is doing something correctly!

I like Timminco and I still hold the company in my portfolio. Timminco had been hurt by the recession, just like Livingston International. As soon things get better, price will go up. That’s why I am not willing to sale. On date of today (1:36PM), Timminco (TIM) is at 1.47$.

Methanex (MX) currently worth 18.72$ per stock. When the TSX was at 15 000 points, Methanex Corporation was at 30$. The value of my initial investment made in Methanex worth 1 626.80$ back than. Currently, this investment worth 1 909.44$. I wasn’t expecting MX to go up. But when it did, I was very happy. Like anything can happen!

If, by any chance, MX goes up to the old 30$.... It will double the value of my investment.

Need other extraordinary examples?

I purchase 100 units of Bank of Nova Scotia at 44.82$ thinking the price was right. It was actually before the price fail to 27$... BNS can easily reach 50$ per stock… If it does, it will make a profit of 533.54$.

And so on. Similar grow could happen to PIF.UN, JE.UN and FTS. And regarding HE, well, I don’t know what to think anymore as the price is low!

Other than that, my Google AdSense income is up to 30.48$. HubPages is really fun to use, but writing articles require a lot of work. One of my latest articles talks about Stevens Demers, author of a financial crime of $10 million.

This is it, I make it!

I finally make it. Its official, on August 5, 2009, I reach my goal, which was to get 50 000$ value in assets. I currently have 50 073.91$ worth in assets.

But the adventure of my first 50 000$ is not over yet… because I have debts.

On date of April 2009, I had 16 627.99$ value in debts.

50 073.91$ - 16 627.99$ = 33 445.92$

In reality, I only worth 33 445.92$. I am planning to get a day time soon, I had been talking about this job searching thing like forever now, but I didn’t really search for a day-time job. I would very much like to pay off my debts in 2010. It would be nice to get debt free before I get 30 next year. But I know myself too well, I way prefer to invest than paying debts. But will see how things turn out.

Today might be the day

Even if the TSX losses just a couple of points in this morning summer morning, my portfolio gain 69.07$. And this is it, I think today is the day where I am going to reach my first 50 000$ because I am expecting a pay today at midnight! It should be around 250$ I believe. And if I am lucky enough, I will receive today my Just Energy Income Fund dividend. And I will hit the magic 50 000$ in assets TODAY.

It have to be today. The exhausting part comes from the fact that I will have to calculate all over again my assets, just like I did yesterday. And because of that, I didn’t find any energy to work on my HubPages articles. I was very exhausting. But don’t forget that when I come back from work, it’s already pass midnight. Crazy time, but I like my night shift. Yesterday was very a hot day; I cannot just support the heat. Before I went to wok, I went pay my bills and when I hit to work, I was sweating. Horrible summer heat. The New Brunswick girl that I am just cannot stand the heat.

On August 7th, there’s an upcoming movie call Julie & Julia coming in theatre with Meryl Streep. It’s going to be a good movie! I saw the preview and I find it very sweet. I hope it will be release this Saturday in Montreal. I also visit Julie blog. It’s really fantastic because in the movie, we see her writing in her blog and to see that it’s like wow! Really fantastic. And guess what, there are absolutely no Google AdSense ads in her blog. NONE lol….

I am now missing less than 200$

Thanks to the TSX big jump to over 11 000 points, I am currently almost reaching my first 50 000$. It’s a very long process to calculate the value of my investments as I have so many of them in different accounts. But each time the TSX makes a major jump, I don’t mind taking a few minutes of my time to calculate the value of my investment. This time, the effort really worth it. I am only missing 153.03$ to reach my first 50 000$. I am receiving a pay of around 250$ this week, so I might be able to reach my first 50 000$ this week! The value of my asset is currently of 49 846.97$. Once my first 50 000$ will be reach, everything will be a lot easier. I cannot wait to reach the 75 000$ and after that, my first 100 000$.... And of course, I will continue until I reach my first million for sure lol.

I received BNS dividend today, I now own 103 stocks of Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS). I just would like to own more of this jewel. Really fantastic stock that is the Bank of Nova Scotia.

I had been working on this investment project for so long now. At some points, I told myself I shouldn’t invest the way I did. I mean, I invest massively in stocks, mutual funds and other and, at some point, I ask myself if it was wrong, if I shouldn’t simply keep the money in my banking account… But the doubt never remain for too long as I really like to invest, check out the TSX, read about financial news, waiting for my dividend payments, etc… Those are really part of my life now and I couldn’t live without those little things, as silly as it sound.

Because I am hot like that

Check it out: the TSX is very close to 11 000 points right now! This is good news for investors! My portfolio is up of 432.06$! I cannot wait to see the result for my mutual funds. We are close to August 27 (which is my birthday). And I just hope I will be able to hit the 50 000$ at that time! It’s going to be awesome!

As you know, I love to calculate… So let’s calculate: 432.06$ + the current 48 647.28$ =
49 079.34$!

And even more exciting, I didn’t receive the dividend from Bank of Nova Scotia of 49.98$ and Just Energy Income Fund dividend of 20.87$....

49 079.34 + 49.98$ + 20.87$ + 1.78$ extra I made lately with my online revenue…..
= 49 151.97$

I am now only missing 848.03$ to reach my first 50 000$. I might be able to make it just in time for my birthday.

I would very much like to sell Dumont Nickel (DNI) at 4 cents, but nothing happen yet. My order still in and is going to valid until August 28.

As for my online income, I am having the time of my live on HubPages. I saw my Google AdSense income up to 1 cent this morning. I prefer a 1 cent income than nothing at all. When I come from my evening job at midnight, first thing I do, I connect to HubPages and to my online money maker accounts to see if any money had been made. It’s truly possible to make money online. It’s take enormous amount of my time as I am spending all of my free-time writing articles. But we will see the results at the end and we’ll see if the time spends writing articles on HubPages worth it or not in a couple of months.

I have to think of my RRSP. I was thinking about opening another broker account because TD Waterhouse ask investor 20$ or so per year to open an RRSP acount, even if I register with eService. This is soooo ugly, asking fees for a RRSP account, really TD Waterhouse has no class.

48 647.28$!

That’s right, I am now at 48 647.28$. In date of July 31, 2009, I am only missing 1 352.72$ to reach my first 50 000$. This is very great. I am very close to my goal now. If only I can work during all the weekends of the month of August, chance are that I will be able to meet my goal by the end of August or September – but only if the TSX remain relatively the same or – even better – gain more points. Everything is possible, but I would really like to say, even just for one day, I now have 50 000$ in assets. WOW!

Thank you
