Eric Sprott next hot sexy thing. It’s not the Dividend Girl, it could be Platinum

What you are about to read could be my longer post ever. It explains in details my strategy to get my hand back on a $7 081.80 dividend value. It also explains a nice plan to get yourself a bit richer if you have a few thousands you don’t know what to do with it. Most of the time, I always know what to do with my money.

I am doing the best I can to stimulate the Canadian economy by investing in Canadian stocks. It’s something that is really important for me. But now, I made a fascinating discovery and of course, business like usual, I am telling you all. I am really hoping that you are doing your reader job right now because what’s coming next is HOT. I just hope you have the intelligence it take to read me and not doing what a reader did, like f@ck, reading me once every 6 months... SHIT. I am insulted. Deeply. Massively. (You can read the comments post in the previous post to figure it out, it’s not like I am going to explain everything).

Not too long ago, I can still remember trading silver on and on and on. I buy, I sell, I buy, I sell. It was fun. It was cool. It was lucrative. But for a reason or another silver value collapse. I own silver in my RRSP and TFSA, and also in US dollars. I invested several thousands of dollars in silver, but suddenly, the silver value collapse, so I just kept in what I had, hoping silver value will raised again later on.

For those kind of things, when my idea is fix, I don’t have any problem holding an investment that is not doing well. I went through those kind of things more than one time and at the end, I got my rewards.

The very first stock I ever purchased was Sprott Inc. (SII). I purchased it when stocks were at $10 each – right before the 2008 stock crash. Following what, the stock market crash, my investment went from a $10 per stock value to less than $5. Imagine! My first stock investment was just like BLOWING me off. LOL. I guess you never had read that from your life, blowing me off...

This is what you get from a French girl.

Following the 2008 stock market crash, SII reached the closed to $10, if not back $10. It reached back that value because Sprott had launched the Sprott Physical Silver Trust ET (PSLV) and Sprott Physical Silver Trust UTS (PHS.U). Right now, Sprott Inc. (SII) is below the $5 bucks. But this time, its’ not silver that will come to the rescue of Sprott. It’s Platinum. I read about Platinum a bit here. I get the idea that Platinum is a valuable and needed metal. 

Just like silver is. But because the stock market is all over the place, the economy is weak, silver and gold are not exactly the best of the best right now. But there are alternatives. And one of those alternatives right now is Platinum.

Because Platinum is so hot, Sprott launched Sprott Physical Platinum and Palladium Trust (NYSE Arca: SPPP) and Sprott Physical Platinum and Palladium Trust (TSX: PPT.U). I think that the Platinum Sprott products will have the same effect as silver did. I HOPE.

I don’t recommend to invest in the Canadian version of Sprott Palladium Trust (PPT.U) because just like the Sprott silver, it’s in US dollars, and not Canadian ones. The headache is not at the time of the purchase, but at the time of the sell... It’s complicated and trust me, you don’t want of PPT.U in your portfolio. But SPPP in US dollars, in a US $ broker account, go for it. Its really that much messy.

If I would have a couple thousands, I would invest in SPPP. But not right now. Right now, I want to get to the same dividend earning level I used to be BEFORE Just Energy Group Inc. (JE). I am about to get back on the glorious road very soon. By target is to hit back on at least $7 081.80. It is quite good money made on relatively secured stock position. I know my portfolio very well despite knowing little about such stocks like WTE. I never fail on my duty however, I like to find new stocks to invest in and I like to make my portfolio better and stronger. It’s always a very sad event when a company like JE, for example, decrease its dividend income. I work at one single job right now. I made just a bit of money my blogging and a bit more by doing some freelance. So the money available to invest is just not there. 

As I am getting older, I don’t like the idea of hitting on 2-3 jobs at a time, but this is really how I made it possible to get all the cash needed to invest. Life is not so expensive in Montreal, but I turn down my medium velouté coffees at Second Cup. I cannot turn down on makeup shopping and nail polish. Those represent an average of 1,5k expense per month for my living. 

This is going to be quite an enormous post to read. I am not even done yet!

Back in the days, TELUS Corporation (T) was a Derek Foster stock. Currently, Telus trade at its highest ever, but it’s been said over here that Telus could make a 6% in 2013. The dividend yield is not too bad, almost 4% but not exactly 4..., but 3.775% In my case, you might know it by now, I have a margin account in my non-registered portfolio. So adding something like Telus Corporation (T) in my portfolio will increase the value of my margin without having to inject cash. Of course, the money borrowed on the margin will remain high, a bit more than 51k at this time, for a 16k left. 

Very recently, Derek Foster has announced a new investment he made. I listen to the video. It’s a Canadian company we all know about. The stock recently decreased in value. The stock value is still high, but the dividend yield is terribly low, not even 2%.... I like Derek Foster very much, and I am very happy to see he’s getting back in the Canadian game.... but gees, that stock, I don’t really want of that stock in my portfolio.

It was strange for me to watch Derek Foster latest video because I saw some wrinkles on the left side of his neck and it was strange. How can you get some wrinkles on your neck like that? By having too much babies. ahah That is what it is. When it comes to Derek Foster little kids, I am always getting stuck on the number 6. I just wonder if it means that he’ll get 6 kids or it’s just me who’s imaging some stuff. Fact is, Derek Foster is getting older and I am getting older too. I just get involved in a relationship before my ovaries cannot procreate anymore.

No matter how many children he’ll get, I really wanted to hit the $700 in dividend income by the end of 2013. And I want to get it by investing in quality stock.

I am not a good investor, but I have a taste for gambling and I am adventurous. I know I said the idea of the mountain lion hero was a bad one... But I am extremely tempted to invest in Precious Metals and Mining Trust (MMP.UN). Why? Because with my upcoming investment in Telus Corp and by investing a relatively low amount of money on MMP.UN, I could very easily hit back the old $7 081.80 in dividend income. A low investment in MMP.UN (like $900) + a $1 700 investment in Telus would be enough to push be back on the very close $7 081.80 dividend value... This is terribly tempting. I might transfer another little sum of money inside my TFSA...  and invest in some Precious Metals and Mining Trust (MMP.UN). That will bring be to somewhere close to $7 052.75 in dividend income.

Inside my investment portfolio, I hold a couple of things that don’t pay a damn cent in dividend. Here they are, with their value on date of January 26, 2013:

First Majestic Silver Corp (FR): $1 752
JFT Strategies Fund (JFS.UN): $1 930
Heroux-Devtek Inc. (HRX): $517
Sprott Physical Silver Trust ET (PSLV): $1 943.66 (US $)
Sprott Physical Silver Trust UTS (PHS.U): $2 544.46
= $8 687.12

If I would sell and reinvest that money at 6% yield, it will pay mean annual: $521.22... Quite crazy isn’t? For now, I still hold those investments the way they are because I hope they will eventually gain in value... one day. I have no doubt about this concerning First Majestic Silver Corp (FR). As for Sprott silver, it could eventually go up again, I don’t worry two much about those 2. As for JFT Strategies Fund (JFS.UN), no big gain yet, I am actually losing in that one a bit, but I guess and hope that the fund is well managed  by Jean-François Tardif and you know, one day I will cash big the investment. As for Heroux-Devtek Inc. (HRX), I own it since December 2012 because the company decided to pay a crazy $5 special dividend... CRAZYYY.

No rush to hit on the 8k in dividend income, but I can make it happen. Also, once Sprott Inc. (SII) will gain in value, I will partly sell it and reinvested the money. We are talking here of about a major original 9k that worth a lot less now. I don’t have any problem holding Sprott Inc. (SII) for now. Patience is a virtue that I do have.

I more of a fantastic gambler than a very good investor but I do believe in my choices.

Welcome in my TFSA portfolio RioCan Real Estate Investment Trust (REI.UN)!

These days, Quebeckers are making me laugh very very hard. It’s quite hilarious to read about Pauline Marois saying about herself that she’s bringing richness to Quebec... Euh.... da... it’s quite the opposite way. I am just excessively happy. Quebeckers are finally receiving the punishment that they truly deserved. And this is just about to begin. Just wait to see the whole Quebec economy collapse. I am waiting to see. 

Quebec province has everything for itself. The province is able to produce the electricity it need for its own province and even more. But it happens that they cannot even manage Hydro Quebec properly. Electricity cost is going to rise, tax on alcohol and cigarettes are very high. We are not that much highly taxes in New Brunswick. Why? Is it because we are richer? It’s clearly the opposite. We can barely produce any electricity at all. Bunch of workers are working just a few months every year in my native province.  

Our strength, us New Brunswickers, is that we know where we come from; we are not fresh and arrogant as much as the Quebeckers are. And most important of all: we are proud Canadians.
In Quebec, social values are not as strong as in New Brunswick.

It doesn’t matter how much you are rich. What matter is in the brain. It’s in the intelligence. It’s in the manner you deal with difficulties. It’s in the spirit. It’s in the way you fight your enemies. At this time, my enemy number one is my immediate supervisor and my goal is to drive her crazy. I want to set her up and mess her up. I want to drain her. And yes, I am praying for her hell. I want her to suffer in her bones. I guess you all want to know why. Well, maybe I will have time to write about all that this weekend because right now I have other things I want to discuss about.

Everything related to Quebec is simply disgusting and I cannot wait for Quebec province to financially collapse under the influence of Pauline Marois, if you see what I mean. Quebeckers like to make fun Canadians and now it’s our turn. Look at how dumb they are.

Pauline Marois is a funny clown to watch. She hasn’t received a bullet in the head yet and it’s for a reason: for Canadians to preserve our heritage and for Quebeckers to die young.

And while watching the clown going, the TSX lost about what, 50 points today? 

My stock portfolio is doing quite well. First, I welcome recently in my portfolio a new investment: RioCan Real Estate Investment Trust (REI.UN). 

Remember my investment in New Flyer Industries Inc. (NFI)? Well, the investment is doing much better now. Very soon, I hope to come later on a positive territory with that one. I am pretty sure it will. I always love NFI, even during bad times. It’s not a problem for me to stick to that one.
Stuff like KBL, PPL, CHR.B and many others are doing – like always – very well.

Some, like my now famous Just Energy Group Inc. (JE) are not doing so well. 

Some others, like New Flyer Industries Inc. (NFI) are going in the right direction.

Today is Valentine Day and I decided to give TD Waterhouse a call. Not to say: I LOVE YU to a hot and sexy male broker. But clearly for something else.

Imagine my surprise: Colabor Group Inc. (GCL) worth 0$ right now in my company. 
After learning what really HAPPEN I said to the broker that I was wondering who was f@cking with my account and than I told him you know its Valentine Day.

:) Sex, Valentine Day & TD Waterhouse broker(s)...

You have to understand I hold everything inside the palm of my hand. What I want is what I get.
I want $$$ and I am about to get my big bucks. Colabor Group Inc. (GCL) has a stop on it, its not trading and it’s still closed. GCL management group are bunch of f ass to have close the stock for so long today!!!! 

However, the company made a good acquisition and according to the broker I spoke to, it mean good news. And I find it is good news too. (perfect match).

So right now, I want the GCL stocks to go straight high so I can sell this shitty Quebec company very very very quickly.

I plan to make another move inside my TFSA. Like now, cash is just floating out of my ears and some other stuff just keep coming out.

The mountain lion hero man is playing with silver in his TFSA

Around here, we know a buddy that is now made famous under the name of the mountain lion hero nan.

Here's what he said in his latest email. He didn't take time to personalize his email, we wrote to me and a guy at the same time. This is what he said:

"Take a serious look at this dividend stock (3 charts) for your TFSA (it could be at or near a bottom???) -
Important to know:  I have no idea WHY the stock price is falling except that China probably reduced it product purchaseing over the last 2 years - which COULD change back to positive in the next 6 months to a year.
If you guys find out why the falling price - let me know.
Precious Metals & Mining Trust (MMP.UN)
Current price is  $5.99 (lowest since June 18, 2009)
Dividend is  $1.20 per yeat
Current yield at $5.99 per share is 20%
Generally a stock with this high a yield is not safe, BUT - see below in blue print
Fund has not paid a dividend of less than $1.20 per year since July 11, 2007 to present
They continued to pay right through the CRASH when the price got down to $3.12 and the yield was 38.46%
Average yield over last 5 years has been 16.20% 
Highest price ever was Dec. 30, 2010 was  $11.55 
Lowest price ever was Nov. 13, 2008 (The CRASH)  $3.12
Precious Metals & Mining Trust   (MMP.UN)
Go see "The Globe Stock investot"  5 year "chart" at:
Then go see the "Canadian Dividend" daily  quote at:
Then go see the "Canadian Dividend" Monthly dividend payments since July 2006 (fund beginning) at:
China is looking OK again and the US politicians seem willing to (mostly) play nicer now.  Good stuff.
I bought 1000 shares at $6.02
My dividend is $100.00 per month
My yield corrently is 20%
When/if the stock moves up to (or over)  $9.04 - I will sell 500
This will leave me with 500 shares with an average cost of $3.00 (or less)
My yield will THEN be  40.0% (or more)
I'm not recommending this (of course) - just telling you what I found.
XXX only (name of the other guy) - Have your investor dude check it out."
I got burn my playing on silver and its not anytime soon I am going to gamble again. I just have a 1k transferred over my TFSA, its not to be invested on shit like that. I way prefer my new investmment, which will be made on REI.UN.
Mountain lion hero is much more of a gambler than what I used to be.
I wish him good luck anyway and please, don't write me if you don't want me to share your shit with everyone else.
Love u anyway.

Welcome in my RRSP portfolio Toronto-Dominion Bank (TD)

Since the Dividend Girl is a TD princess (yeah yeah, you read correctly), I decided to invest in the best Canadian bank! I had over 6k available in cash inside my RRSP broker account. so today, before hitting back to work on this beautiful rainy Monday, I decided to place an investment for my RRSP.

As a bank, TD Bank was very good to me. TD was the first bank to provide me a line a credit. That was back somewhere in 2005. I also got my RRSP loan with TD and also a credit card which provides me a low interest rate every 6 months as long as I do the ping-pong thing (credit card balance transfer). I never missed a payment on everything I hold with TD. You treat me well, I will treat you well too. Its just too bad that RBC Royal Bank didn't have the same intelligence.

Fact is, TD bank doesn't care that much even your from the middle class. What they want deeply and very madly is your business. They'll give you everything you want, credit card, RRSP loan, credit line. If I got all those stuff, you can sure too! Its not because I am a TD princess that I am necessarily an exceptional customer with a A+++ credit score. TD is a sexy bank and they want YOU to be their customer. It's really that simple.

Since I made my move below the $85, I think I catch my TD stocks at a good price, something like in the $83. I also have a GIC with TD that had expired. Its been on since February 2008. And guess what, it has expired in February 2013 of this year and I didn't earn one single penny from the investment!!!!! This is unfortunately very true.

Lesson learn: better to invest in the stocks of a bank rather its GIC. The stocks of a bank are not 100% guarantee like a GIC, but at least, you are almost 100% guarantee to get an interesting return...

I have a couple of things to take care of right now and my RRSP is one of them. I am still not done with it. I still have the $500 coming from the GIC to invest and also a few thousands. I would very much like to get in the Saskatchewan Pension Plan. I wrote about this one a very long time ago. Since I am not in RRSP at this time, I never made my move. I am just very curious if its possible to invest in the Saskatchewan Pension Plan through a broker like TD Waterhouse.

Other than that, I don't really have much idea for my RRSP. I am even thinking of getting in one or two of their mutual funds, low risk ones.

I am already taking enough risk with my non-registered portfolio. Don't you think so?

Other plan: I am looking forward to transfer a 1k in my TFSA (yeah yeah, you read correctly) and invest in RioCan Real Estate Investment Trust (REI.UN). Yesterday, I was looking at the list of real estate stuff that belong to REI.UN. And it was just soooo funny when I saw that they 100% own a small shopping mall, a mall where I used to go all the time with my friends when I was a teenager. We must had spent hundred of hours at that place! In result of my finding, I NEED to get RioCan Real Estate Investment Trust (REI.UN) in my portfolio. Its just a mater of dring dringggg to TD and say; transfer a 1k in my TFSA please! Or can I do that myself online? It doesn't seem like I can.

i haven't forgot about the mountain lion hero man. Its going to be the subject of my next post.

Just Energy Group Inc. (JE) dividend is now at 84 cents ok, deal with it

Just to give me an idea of where I am at, I calculate the value of my portfolio the way it was before, with what I had recently transferred over my TFSA. And it make an amount of $126 709. Back in January, I was at $128 170.36, a difference of -$1 461.36. This is in result of Just Energy Group Inc. (JE), my precious darling, who had loss more than $1 per share this past Friday. The difference is not about to last for long as I have at my disposal a brand new $1 580 to invest.

I had been a long time investor of Just Energy Group Inc. (JE). I love their business and I like the story of Rebecca MacDonald. I have Just Energy in my portfolio since 2009. Between 2009 and today, the dividend distribution had been $1.24 annually. It takes the hell of a great business to be able to distribute that much to its investors. That had been my reality with Just Energy Group Inc. (JE) for the past 4 years. I even received a special dividend distribution from Just Energy Group Inc. (JE). I can remember one time. Just Energy business is lucrative. I appreciate the efforts coming from the company to diversify themselves and also to gain customers in the US and the UK. But all those fabulous projects cost a lot of money. 

I have appreciated Just Energy Group Inc. (JE) in the past 4 years and I will probably continue with the same behavior in the years to come. Rebecca MacDonald announced that the annual dividend distribution have been reduced to $0.84 per year. That’s a difference of 40 cents. I applaud the decision. Just Energy has the responsibility to plan its future and reducing its dividend distribution allows the company to expand and plan a brilliant future. It will be Rebecca MacDonald heritage to Canada. She will behind a company who has the capacity to generate income. Of course, it’s not all investors that care as much as I do about Just Energy Group Inc. (JE). It’s not all investors who have the capacity to read over the dividend decreased. 

One commentator on this blog left a comment that Just Energy was like Yellow Pages. Well, you cannot compare the 2. Yellow Pages never had the ability to diversify itself, but Just Energy has that ability to build projects and diversified its own business by successful takeovers. Not to forget that Yellow Pages industry is base in Quebec. There are not too many success stories in Quebec when it come to business. I believe that the intelligence of Rebecca MacDonald will offer a great future for Just Energy. 

I had been investing since 2008 and now I am very closed of getting my hands on a net worth of 100k. And trust me, it shouldn’t be that way. I am from a small town in New Brunswick were businesses are poor and there’s not great money to be made. I am the typical middle class profile hot country girl. But I have my thousands and thousands buck no matter what. Why? I am not of a specialize profession; I am not a nurse, or an accountant. But this being said, I am not a prostitute or a sexy escort. I am the girl next girl who’s the Beauty Queen Next Door.

It’s possible to save a great deal of money even while living on a typical middle class salary. I thing I am the living proof of it. The quality of being able to save money is something that you have or you don’t have. It’s something that can be learn, but it’s not something that can be easily teach. Trust me, I have try it with my bro and a good friend of mine.

What make it impossible for those two people that I love and cherish to save money? Well, they cannot see belong. They cannot understand how little things can make them win big on the long run.

And this is exactly what’s going on with Just Energy. Investors have to get the big pictures. But it’s not everyone who has the intelligence to do so.

I am not saying that my bro and my friend are not intelligent, but something is missing. It was completely horrible for me at a point to be with my friend. While at the shopping mall, she was buying all those clothes. Everything she wanted and was pretty, she would buy it. She had the money, she’s in the Canadian army and had been in since her young twenties. By now, if she would have save some cash, she would be very rich by now. When I last saw her, she didn’t have much in the bank. I even once borrowed her $500 for her not be late on her car payment. I got my money back, but she never been able to go over it, just enjoy her money while it lay in the bank. I haven’t heard of her in many years now. But it’s my fault, I cannot stand her spending habit. And I don’t want be around when she’ll need more money.

The ability to save money is what will elevate you from the other dumb ass. A dollar save is a dollar that is keeping you away from your boss. No one should have authority over you and the only way to gain financial freedom is to save every penny you can and invest every penny you can. Where? On the TMX. Canadian cash need to remain in the Canadian market.

Now could be a good time to invest in Just Energy and I am extremely tempt to invest 1k in Just Energy and see how it goes. A 1k investment in Just Energy will provide me $100 annually. Does it worth it? Hmmmm.... We are going to talk again about it.

My portfolio is very funky. Since 2008, I invested in many stocks, buy, sell, and buy, sell over and over again. I have that very great dividend income. In other words, I am very great. The most important thing that I learn and continue to apply is not too invest too much in the same company. That is the life savor rule of all. Now, there’s a diversified portfolio and there’s a too much diversified portfolio. My portfolio could be seen as being too diversified. The only problem being there’s so many great opportunity and companies out there.... My military friend is into clothes (was, but still might be) and I, gentlemen, am into stocks purchase and stocks sell, and dividend, and special dividend distribution.... See what I mean.

There’s nothing money can’t buy and money have buy my happiness. No big deal, I am just close to the 100k net worth. But where I come from, a 100k worth a million bucks. Or something like it. It kill me when I seen people buying a condo or worst, a condo in Vancouver or much worst... a house... and spending thousands and thousands of dollars in the purchase of a condo or house... I mean, after that, you have to spend the rest of your life working just to ensure you can pay for everything. That’s a capital slavery made to ensure you remain a slave to your boss. Nothing will bring in financial freedom if money is spend where it shouldn’t. Trust me, you want to be free and independent. That is what money is for, to become free of your choices and your life. I want to be free to go to New Brunswick whenever I want. I want to be free to scream F@UCK YOU to the business who made me stay in for 4 months this summer without the right of having any vacation days. I want the right to have the life I want and I am almost there. I want revenge. I am like Sylvester Stallone in his latest movie A Bullet in the Head. I ADORE Sylvester Stallone. I saw A Bullet in the Head yesterday - it was very great, in the Western Louisiana sexy scene. Christian Slater is playing in the movie. Go see A Bullet in the Head and get the taste of sweet revenge in your mouth. DELICIOUS ;)

To dumers who are saying bad things on Just Energy, shame on you. I don’t think you have what it take to build a million dollars, billion even, like Rebecca MacDonald did. You have to see belong.

Getting more shares of Just Energy could not be the best idea of all time. Problem being, I already invested thousands and thousands in this company. But what is currently invested in Just Energy WILL remain in Just Energy.

At this time, I need to focus on stuff that will bring me to prosperity like Black Diamond Group Ltd (BDI) and Derek Foster are doing for me at this present time. Do I understand what the stock market is all about? It’s about money and passion.

For those of you who knows the buddy, I received something coming from the mountain lion hero man. Stay tune.

You know that bitches don't like you when they acted like this

I am slowly getting organize. My problem is my crazy work schedule, there's no way to get around it. I got my investment transferred over my TFSA. The investments are there. So next time I published an update of my investment portfolio, you'll see much more stuff inside my TFSA. These days, KEG.UN decided to perform very well. So this is giving me the opportunity to have the stock transferred over before it hit even bigger in value. I am really that smart!!!! Gees.......... Could that be very true????

Anyway, true or nor, I had found the true colors of my Montreal employer today. Back in May 2012, I accepted a contract for the period of May to September 2012. At the end of the contract, I was promised a $500 bonus if I wouldn't miss a day of work during that period. I didn't miss a day of work and I worked all summer long. Following what, shortly before the term of the contract, I was offer a permanent position. And what happen is that just yesterday, I asked them about the $500 bonus, saying it was never paid to me and I asked if it will be paid. Well, the human resources guy did not answer me, but the Vice President did. And she answered me that she had explained to me when I signed the permanent contract that the $500 wouldn't be paid because it was something giving as a "leaving bonus". But she never did so. We only signed the contract for the permanent job, but nothing had been said during that meeting about my $500 bonus. I was pretty insulted today and i will do all I can to find another job.

Imagine this: you spend 4 months at a job, learning the place, replacing each and anyone going on vacations, you don't have the right yourself to go even not one day in vacation and at the end of the contract period, or when it supposed to be end, you cannot even get the bonus you had been promised.

Quebeckers are liars and cheaters and I got another living proof of that today. They have to lie to cover their terrible moves. I am not a liar, I am not a cheater and I have a very good memory. I remember my meeting with the Vice-President for the signature of my permanent position perfectly well and nothing have been said about the $500 bonus.

The job is very hard and not allowing an employee, even a contractual one, to take any vacation at all during 4 long months without giving anything back in return, well, its pretty much inhuman. Its giving me a real sense of the poor quality of the people I am directly dealing with.

And don't ever thing it will end this way. I want their supervisors to find out about this and I am ready to but some shit in.

I never been happy in Quebec and now has come the time to leave but before, let's burn them down.

Welcome in my non-registered portfolio Cineplex Inc. (CGX)

Monday is the first day of the week and really suck like most of the time but I decided anyway to do a few moves on my sexy portfolio. Even in a Monday mood.

First, just like announced previously, I sold out a few stocks of Student Transportation (STB). I sold 114 shares at $6.47 (100) and $6.46 (14). I hold almost the double of that amount of STB stocks. I felt it was better for me to reduce my position in STB. Not because STB is a bad stock, but because I wanted to diversify my assets and also reduced my position in this small cap. The economy is not about to get real better anytime soon and I prefer to stick to stuff that I know will be able to support my margin value during recession-depression time.

So during that time, I am trying to be smart and play hard. I am getting ready for a catastrophic stock market conditions and a laid off. I am getting ready for the worst time of my life. So I happily partly sell off my investment in Student Transportation and I bought some Cineplex Inc. (CGX) stocks.

Today, I also call in TD Waterhouse (I unfortunately have to deal with a girl broker, which make my Monday worst - I was expecting a sexy male broker voice) to get my investment in Keg Royalties Income Fund (KEG.UN), Healthlease Properties Real Estate Investment Trust (HLP.UN) and Sprott Strategic Fixed Income Fund (SFI.UN) transferred over my TFSA. Inside my TFSA, the dividend earned from those investment will be free of tax. The dividend distributes by HLP.UN, KEG.UN and SFI.UN are not pure because they are .UN companies. So for that specific reason, I decided it was about time to do something about it. And not to forget that the money transferred in a TFSA can be withdraw at anytime in case of need. The rules are not as restricted as for the RRSP. Jim Flaherty may be an alcoholic, but he has pleased many investors with the launched of the TFSA. I still have left contribution room in my TFSA. I may slowly transfer over some other investments who have a low loan value for my margin. It will be difficult to find other stuff to transfer over my TFSA because most of holding own hundreds if not thousands in margin loan value.

In the immediate time, Data Group Inc. (DGI) doesn't have a loan value. Between you and me, its quite a bad sign. Friendly advice: don't invest in Data Group Inc. (DGI). So basically, I could transferred my investment in Data Group Inc. (DGI) over my TFSA and it will have no effect on my margin value.

Another investment that I could currently transferred over my TFSA (I should had joint that one to the list of today actually) is a Gordon Pape stock: Firm Capital Mortgage Investment Corporation (FC). That one has a loan value of just a bit more than a 100 bucks in my portfolio and the gain made on the investment is not much, just a $36. Which mean I won't have a fortune to pay on capital gain when I transferred that one in my TFSA. The best of all is to actually transferred real fresh cash (not coming from the margin for once) over the TFSA and AFTER shoot in cool crazy stocks. At this time, the challenge of my life is to take control over my expenses, stop eating like if I am pregnant without being and to stay away from junk stocks. And junk food too. Can I do that, do you think? (And now, gentlemen, just close your eyes and imagine me naked on the beach).

Got ya.

My non-registered portfolio is now at $127 297.59, with a margin left of $18 210. Enough to go shopping.

Who are you Eugene Kaspersky?

I hit big in January for my dividend income in January with a nice $783.09. This is enough to cover half the cost for my living expenses, which is about $1 500 a month. I also earned a $123 from online for the month of January. The little amounts of money adding up, making it easier to save cash to invest even more. I received my first freelance assignment for 2013. I have to move faster because it’s already February and I haven’t try anything new regarding my freelance activities. I even haven’t try on getting a new something to work on.

For 2013, something I really want to work on is to be able to cover my living expenses with my dividend + freelance + online cash. It shouldn’t be too much difficult for me to reach this goal, especially now that my dividend now represents an interesting source of income. As for the online income, I have my blog and my HubPages articles. Now that I got rid of my winter flue and full of my usual energy, I am ready to push it a bit further. While getting ready, I am watching the beautiful stocks of my very wonderful portfolio.

Student Transportation (STB) is a stock that I had been holding for 2 years. I have invested a bit more than $1 300 in STB. The company value seems to be stable for now, but I prefer to secure my position while I can. Right now, I am doing a profit on STB, small, but still a profit. It’s a good time for me to do a move on the stock. I don’t feel comfortable with the amount currently invested in STB. I plan to partly sell my holding in Student Transportation (STB) and reinvest the money in something else.

Lately, I have been interesting in the following:

Cervus Equipment Corporation (CVL): a stock from Jean-François Tardif, the love of mine I began to have enough of.
Cineplex Inc. (CGX): a stock I had been thinking of investing in for a little while).
RioCan Real Estate Investment Trust (REI.UN): a more recent investment that catch my interest after reading about it on the Globe and Mail.

I am thinking of holding a bit of Cineplex Inc. (CGX), so it’s probably where the money will be added on sometime next week.

I don’t plan to sell my holding in JFT Strategies Fund (JFS.UN) for now. It’s just that I was hoping for quick big cash on the investment. For now, the situation is not catastrophic. Jean-François Tardif had come with some real good stocks like Healthlease Properties Real Estate Investment Trust (HLP.UN) and Cervus Equipment Corporation (CVL). JFS.UN units are trading at close to $10. I got my units at $10 each during the public offering. Patience is a virtue that I kind of have and lose sometime. Right now, between me and Jean-François Tardif, it’s tough love. I made a great profit on Healthlease Properties Real Estate Investment Trust (HLP.UN). I had been holding HLP.UN in my portfolio since October 2012.

My margin value is at more than 18k. In my portfolio, HLP.UN has a loan value of less than $300. I was thinking of transferring my HLP.UN units to my TFSA. I plan on doing so for Keg Royalties Income Fund (KEG.UN) and Sprott Strategic Fixed Income Fund (SFI.UN). All together, those investments have a loan value of something like $500. So what I plan to do is to transfer those inside my TFSA and add a $500 in cash to my margin account to compensate.

I don’t have much invested in my TFSA and I want to fix that.

I could even transfer my JFT Strategies Fund (JFS.UN) over my TFSA. Now could be a good timing because right now, I am not making a profit on JFS.UN. From my understanding, when you take a non-registered investment and transfer it to TFSA or RRSP, if you have made money on the investment since you had been holding it, you are going to have a capital gain that will be apply on the transfer. See what I mean?

Ok, let say that I had invested $500 on XYZ Inc. company and that now that same investment worth $1 000. If I want to now transfer XYZ Inc. in my TFSA, I will have a $500 capital gain to declared, on which I will be tax.

Right now, the profit made on KEG.UN and HLP.UN is not enormous. And on SFI.UN, I am not on a capital gain, but on a capital loss of a couple dollars. Now is the perfect timing to consider the TFSA. I will make my move soon.

My antivirus has expired. On my laptop, I had McFee, but I didn’t like it, I find it too heavy for my machine. I used to have Kaspersky Lab on my previous laptop and it worked very well. I usually buy my antivirus during Boxing Day but this year, I was on vacation in New Brunswick and the need to purchase an antivirus got out of my mind. My McFee licence got expired this week. Surfing the Web without an antivirus can be very dangerous – I know that at least. So today, I purchased my antivirus. I purchased it full price, $59.99 for one year. I didn’t have any choice.

While opening the CD box of Kaspersky Lab, I saw the picture of Eugene Kaspersky, the co-founder of Kaspersky Lab and the man caught my attention. A sexy Russian guy. His son got kidnapped in 2011, but he was found and released with no injuries. I found Eugene Kaspersky quite interesting. Now you know about him.

Thank you
