Its was quite an exciting day today! It was very nice to watch the TSX hitting over the 15 900 points!!!!!

My non-registered portfolio closed today at its highest value EVER: $185 720.28

By closing at 15 855.76 points, the TSX had made me her favorite Queen by pushing me over the hedge to never been seen before profits. Its almost like I may get my pretty hands on a  $300 000. My non-registered portfolio closed at a great $185 720.28, which is its very highest value EVER! My TFSA portfolio closed at $61 384.75, and my RRSP (stocks only), at $37 347.93. So far, it looks to me like the TSX is definitively going to close at 16 000 points by the end of the year. As once said, you got to be an ambitious investor or now.

Having a TSX exceeding the 15 500 points is just super great. It makes things a lot easier, and it certainly makes it more fun to be invested in the market. I still have a hot crush on Boralex Inc. (BLX). I truly believe that BLX is going to be a great fit for my portfolio and I may place my move soon. I am working hard on myself not to invest again using my margin money. Because the baby is big and fat as ever before, $103 017.71... I truly believe that BLX is going to be a great fit for my portfolio. Following that investment, I will do my very best to stop investing for a little while and I will try to focus on paying down my debt, and leave a bit in my banking account. Many things ahead are also coming in a hurry: Christmas, next year TFSA contribution, and tax declaration... At a point, if I don't want to hold to the whole TSX in my portfolio, this got to stop somewhere, somehow.

It's hard to save money, very hard. I didn't get my hair coloration done for the past couple months - and that being just to save some money. But I am now a bit more happy with my choice since I read somewhere on Yahoo that hair coloration could be linked to breast cancer. I certainly don't want to say goodbye to my best assets. My natural color began to show up and it's not ugly. I also made the commitment not to purchase any new clothes, as I my two wardrobes are really full pack. I guess the most difficult part is to deal with the need of getting my hands on something new,  just like I love to invest in a new stock for my portfolio from times to times. Really recently, a nice scarf at the Chateau catches my eyes. Do I need it? No, I have a nice scarf of my daddy that I have and many others. At a point, it's the individual responsibility to stay strong and stand in front of any temptations. I can easily say no to a new scarf, but its a lot harder to say no to Boralex Inc. (BLX). Another BIG diamond on my naked body. Yes, thank you ;)

A new stock for my investment portfolio: Boralex Inc. (BLX)

A lot is going on right now for the TSX. First of all, the TSX closed today session at 15 816.90 points. I am not richer than yesterday because strangely, my non-registered closed lower today. Too bad because I was on road to become the Queen of the TSX.

Bombardier Inc. is desperately trying to push the sale of its CSeries by enrolling in a partnership with Airbus. I never really been impressed with Bombardier. By getting under the arms of Airbus, they had chosen the easiest solution. Under its CEO Alain Bellemare, Bombardier is not doing really well. In Alain Bellemare, I only see a man of an extreme freshness and extraordinary arrogance. The type of man you want to avoid at any cost.

With this so-called good deal, Bombardier is losing its most valuable asset, the CSeries, and now, Airbus will get all the rewards and profit. The worst part is, that jobs may not be secured and might not stay in Canada. And us, Canadian citizens, we have injected millions and millions of our tax money into what is now best know as a garbage company. Anyhow, I am done with Bombardier, its just such a ridiculous company and it doesn't worth the attention of any serious investors.

On the other hand, today was a bright day for Boralex Inc. (BLX). I didn't know that company before, but I knew them without knowing. I am from New Brunswick and I travel back and forth to Montreal-New Brunswick on and on and on. ;) And when I leave my dear New Brunswick town in direction of Quebec province, I can see these huge wind turbines right on top of a mountain. And when I see those turbines, it becomes clear, I am leaving New Brunswick to Montreal...

Anyhow, it happens that Boralex Inc. (BLX) had been around for quite sometimes. Boralex is right in a sector that I wanted to expand my portfolio in: renewable energy. It had been in the past a property of Cascades, another Quebec company, but they sold all their shares to reduce their debt. In result, the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec is now the majority shareholder. BLX pay a dividend, closed to 3%. One thing I really like about BLX is that only 6% of their business is done in the USA. 53% in Canada, and 41% in France. It's not like if BLX really relies on the US to realize its profit, and this is really a good thing. It plays in the favor of the company, and on mine.
There's quite a contrast between Bombardier Inc. and Boralex Inc. (BLX). Two Quebec companies, but only one of them worth considering for my investment portfolio.

My non-registered portfolio is now $185 707.85!!!

See, with a lot of pure money love, the TSX is finally learning to obey me. I say I wanted a 16 000 points by the end of the year and its exactly what's going to happen. At 15 802.7 points, the TSX is shining like a diamond. And in result, I am richer than ever before. My non-registered portfolio closed today session at $185 707.85, my TFSA at $61 015.23, and RRSP $37 000.48. My dividend income, excluding RRSP, is now at $8 497.94, or an equivalent of $708.17 per month.

My non-registered portfolio is now at $185 154.18

I came back this week from a few vacation days in New Brunswick and while I was away, I kept watching the TSX, and it just kept going all the way up! Could the TSX closed the year 2017 at a 16 000 points? It could be the dream and if the TSX closed at 16 000 points, I will be richer than ever before. $206 352 is not that much money, but even at 37, I could never imagined having that amount, for me its a big chunk of sexy cash. I unfortunately had to come back to Montreal, but here are a few pictures of my home province, in the wood baby in the most nicest and beautiful place on earth (yeah!!!), and nothing else. Be proud New Brunswickers.

My non-registered portfolio closed this past Friday session at a very good $185 154.18 - its very highest value EVER. Fact that Premium Brands Holdings Corporation (PBH) is now trading at close $103 per share is certainly helping my caused - just so kicking ass the usual way. I got worried regarding CAE Inc. (CAE) for little while, but its now getting back on track. And my TFSA portfolio closed at $60 800.74 and RRSP, $36 928.25. Currently, if it wouldn't be of the capital lost that I experimented in Exchange Income Corporation (EIF) because of the shit of Marc Cohodes, I would be sitting on much more cash right now. 

In case you had missed the story, a couple months ago, an American citizen of the name of Marc Cohodes badly hurt the value of Exchange Income Corporation (EIF) on the TSX. Cohodes bad mouthed EIF title and he short-sell it, which in result affected the value of EIF. Of course, I got very scared, and I sell off that stock. I had been invested in Exchange Income Corporation (EIF) since February 2011 and it really broke my heart to sell EIF, but I was very scared to lose money. I was way too scared. So I sell, at profit, but still, it didn't feel right to me knowing that an American bastard had controlled over my life.

And now, even if its wrong, I am very happy that Marc Cohodes California home sweet home is burning down. May he burns among his chickens so I can never hear of him ever again.

Julie Payette: the Governor General of Canada who shouldn't be

The TSX closed today session at a very great 15 776.30 points. October had begun on the right foot and it look like the TSX is on the road for even more great gains. My non-registered portfolio closed today session at $183 711.62, my TFSA portfolio $60 354.16 and my RRSP portfolio (stocks only), at $36 453.95.

I no longer hold my Veresen Inc. (VSN) shares inside my non-registered portfolio. It look like Veresen Inc. (VSN)-Pembina Pipeline Corporation (PPL) merger is finally happening! Pembina Pipeline Corporation (PPL) is among the first company I invested in when I started my portfolio and PPL is my baby, I am extremely proud to be invested in that company. Back in the days, PPL was a Derek Foster stock. Mergers and acquisitions are usually pretty exciting stuff, but the one happening here in Quebec right now between Jean Coutu and Metro is quite boring and it doesn't worth any attention - and its also the case with who's the newest Governor General of Canada.

The old guy who used to be the Governor General of Canada was an unknown boring old man, but this newest nomination won't get unnoticed. Julie Payette, Quebecker, scientist, ex astronaut, perfectly bilingual is Canada newest Governor General. Her only role is to represent the Queen, whose is far away living in the UK in one of her castle and don't give a damn, and her  daily biggest task is to drink her tea.

I find it a real shame that a woman of the quality of Julie Payette had accepted to waste her time by endorsing a fake monarchy role. Its a thing to be queen or king - because you have no choice to endorse the role - but its another thing to accept to be part of that bullshit. With all her knowledge, Julie Payette could changed the world by being a scientist, conduct some serious research, or even by being a super great university teacher. By being Governor General of Canada, Julie Payette had proved herself as being nothing more than a stupid Quebecker, with no real sense of intelligence what so ever. She can enjoy and do her job on her throne and I hope it will smell bad in the senate!!! Quebeckers like Julie Payette are proving themselves as being poor citizens over and over again. And it seriously making me laugh. During that fun time, far away from my native land, I am getting richer and richer and no, it doesn't smell bad around here!

I know this might be super hard right now for the very love Brian Gallant, but I was released today that the Energy East pipeline project won't ever happen. Its quite a very strange thing when you actually think it right: petrol is dirty made in Alberta, the plan was to build a pipeline that goes from Alberta to all the way down to Saint John New Brunswick.... But why? I know we desperately need jobs in New Brunswick, but it had to be done the right way because we are just too smart. The danger with that pipeline was that it could had pollute our water and our land. Our environment worth more than just a couple hundred jobs.

To be or not to be an ambitious dividend investor

Oh lala readers, check out on this! Looking quite great!

This is making me laugh, but in a good way of course, for many reasons. One reason because I don't analyze stock, and for that good reason, Susan Brunner should have come on the first spot. It's a thing to write pretty things about stock like a Barbie girl, and pick stocks mostly base on feeling and emotions like I do, but it's a completely other thing to be able to understand what it is all about. And there's just one Canadian blogger who does so. And it's not me, it's my Susan Brunner. Maybe one day I will get into it seriously, maybe not.
I often write on how good I am and when it come to me and to defend the stocks that I invest in, I am of an extreme freshness and enigmatic arrogance. You won't find better for those qualities just nowhere around the world. If I write so many good words about my own myself, it's because when you are an investor and you are alone and that you have 99.9% of your own money on the stock market, and you do it by yourself and you want to get a bit more than the 2% GIC that the bank proposed, you just have no choice, you need to believe in yourself first because if not, you won't last very long, especially when the stock market play its regular garbage that can drive you all the way down, and when it does, it's like getting a hard punch in your stomach. And if I always write on much much I am good, and that I am the world best investor and blablabli and blablabla, it's for a single good reason: it makes great post to read, and the fact is, you become what you think you are. All I wanted to start on was a $50 000 and now I am exceeding the 200k net worth and I just keep wanted more and there'll be just no end to it, unless I die. Los Angeles tragic events are just an example that it can really happen anytime, anywhere, even if I truly believe that it could take a lot to kill me. I saw the guns that the poor men killed people with, and it's really horrible. With guns like that, you can kill too many people. Many had been killed, but many others could have died.

In moments like those, you can only invest for yourself, but also in behalf of those who can't-do so, for so many reasons, and for those who had passed away.
I usually don't check on a stock that is no longer from my portfolio, for several reasons. One reason being, with a portfolio like this one, as you can imagine, I have already a lot to follow. Like a lot. It's not always  When I sell a stock, it's because: I am losing money on it and I am desperately trying to save the money left of the investment; the capital gain return is poor and the dividend income is poor. It's for that last reason that I sold out Open Text Corporation (OTEX) a while ago. Old stocks like OTEX are part of my past, not my future.

All this to say that today, I check on Novo Resources Corp. (NVO) and I quite shocked to see that it gain a lot today. But it's part of what this stock is about, it makes great gains, and the day after, it loses money like crazy. And that's something that is really hard for me to live with. I don't like to hold on to stocks that go up and down drastically.

Sienna Senior Living Inc. (SIA): home care for senior could be the next gold mine

Despite all the sad events happening right now around the world, the TSX decided to closed today session at a very good 15 705 points. In result, my non-registered portfolio closed at $183 695.14, and my TFSA portfolio at $60 256.11.

I was about to post something more elaborate, but I am getting tired and anyway, my post title is stealing the show. You know what you need to do right now: invest in Sienna Senior Living Inc. (SIA) and make me richer like ever before.

Another cool title could had been:

Sienna Senior Living Inc. (SIA): home care for seniors with a sexy twist.

Saying hello to a $206 352.49 net worth!!! $$$

I was quite glad about the results of this last session Friday, so I quickly post a portfolio update! I didn't publish an update since April of this year!!!! It's been quite a rough road, but there's nothing I can handle of course. Back in April, my net worth was of $204 277.66. And on the date of September 30, $206 352.49. It's not of a super great gain, I totally agree, and maybe I shouldn't have posted my update, but at least there's a gain and I am confident that with my newest investments, I will be able to gain thousands and thousands more in terms of capital gain. Also, I like this because it really shows the true nature of investment - on how it can be difficult. If it wouldn't be of Marc Cohodes, my net worth would currently be in the $210 000.

What Marc Cohodes did is a terrible thing. He had deprived myself of my proud, of several thousands of dollars, and hard hurt really badly the value of Exchange Income Corporation (EIF) on the stock market. And currently, EIF is still far away from its 52 week high - $45.28 per share - and a lot of time will pass by before EIF can even get back to its old highest value. Just to know that some old rich gansters like Marc Cohodes are good enough to hurt the interest of Canadians so badly make me sick. It's a matter of both money and influence. Personally, I don't give any credit to Americans. Knowing who they are, how much racist and violence we find in the USA, that country arrived pretty low in my ranking. Canadians are among the brightest mind, we live in the best country of the world. Don't ever think that its everyone living on a middle-class salary like myself that have enough to invest in the stock market like I do. Many individuals in the US, France and even in the UK are having a really hard time to make a living. In the US, many residents are having the hell of a time just to pay for their medical bills. Fact is, when you don't have the chance to be Canadian and to live in Canada, it makes it harder, and even impossible in many cases, to have money in the market or to have any savings at all.

To see individuals like Marc Cohodes ruining my dream of glory glam on EIF, it makes me mad. I find Canadians too calm, gentle like little lambs who are scared of any Americans with money and power. No one is attacking Marc Cohodes for what he did. For a reason or another, back in the summer of 2017, Marc Cohodes decided to massively short-sell Exchange Income Corporation (EIF) and it caused EIF to lose a lot in value. I had been hurt by Marc Cohodes, and all EIF investors did. I know I hold to a lot of stocks already in my portfolio, but eventually, I would like to get back in Exchange Income Corporation (EIF).

Following my first $100 000, it took me 3 years to reach my first $200 000 in net worth. I guess it will take about the same amount of time to get into the 300k mark. I got impressed by the 200k net worth and it was hard to believe I was there, but I eventually got used to it and now it's all about getting into the 300k net worth. Its never enough, and truly, a 206k net worth is not that much, so I have no choice other than kicking Marc Cohodes ass and keep up going. It's a matter of proud, of not letting an American to have the last word on me. It's also a matter of respect to all of the good companies that the TSX is holding. It's a matter of having confidence in the Canadian economy. It's a matter of intelligence.

Last week was really horrible here in Montreal. I got caught in heavy heat and I didn't have a nice time at all. And it's partly why I didn't post about the following: I had sold out all of my shares of Novo Resources Corp. (NVO). It was getting too intense for my taste. I really dislike NVO drastic ups and downs. It was getting hard on my lady's nerves. Holding NVO in my TFSA portfolio was imply to hard. I sell out, and reinvest the money in BCE.

This last move just reminds me of who I am: I will never be a trader, I am an investor. What I am into is Canadian companies who are well-established and pay a dividend. It's really simple, but it's way too easy to get in different directions and just lose it. I am doing my best to get the best of the best Canadian business in my portfolio. I had been investing in stocks for a long time now and no matter what, I always get my hands on something new for my portfolio. I always find great new Canadian companies to invest in. Its really what I am into: to hold on to the best businesses so I can make a max of cash, with a risk, but with a risk that I have the wrong impression to control.
