Colby’s Portfolio (As of June 30,2020)

This is a list of my current holdings and what account they are in currently. The percentage weighting of each stock may fluctuate as market prices change and I buy or sell stocks. I will probably update This page once a month or so if you want to check in and see what I have bought or sold and how the cost basis and dividends are changing.

It is a good idea to try and max out your tax sheltered accounts before you open a margin account. I did not do this when I started and probably cost myself a few thousand in taxes I would not have had to pay if the stocks were in an RRSP or TFSA. (See notes at bottom for extra portfolio info)

TFSA Holdings:

This month in my TFSA I increased my Bell holding a little at a cost of $58.01, bought a little more Transalta at $7.91, and opened a new position in Scotiabank at $57.48. Bell and Kirkland also passed their Ex Dividend days this month and will be paying out those dividends next month.

There are a few things I want to talk about off of this list. Overall profit/loss includes realized and unrealized gains and losses (dividends and previous trades of that stock in that account). The margin account is an almost bare account. Most of the value that was in this account was moved out to my TFSA. Athabasca Oil was one of those poor investment choices I mentioned in my first article. They have the double whammy of not being profitable yet and being an oil company. They were a risky buy and it bit me. I am basically holding them out of morbid curiosity at this point. Plus I can sell them and use the tax loss to offset profits once I do start using my margin account again Assuming they last until then.

Reliq Health I believe has potential, but I had the uber bad luck of buying them 2 weeks before they announced they had to redo their financial statements so I am basically waiting to see if the new CEO can right the ship before I decide whether to keep or sell them.

Interlapse has a cost basis of $0 because I received them as a non cash type dividend from another stock I had previously had in my portfolio. I am just waiting to see if it goes up to a value I like before I sell it.

Denbury Resources is another one of those bad investing choices I had previously mentioned. They are a very high debt company that has a high potential of going bankrupt with the coronavirus and low oil price environment that we have now. They got notice of pending delistment from the NYSE due to the share price being under a dollar. They are going to be splitting to get back over a dollar per share. Very risky buy but could net big returns if they survive. Only buy if you are very risk tolerant and willing to lose the money you invest in it.

Boeing I just timed poorly figuring the max would get back in the air fairly quickly which is clearly not the case. I will be continuing to dollar cost average this stock down in the future. I figure they will get over $300 again eventually, (years from now), not anytime soon.

I also had the minor misfortune of moving my RRSP to virtual brokers during a market high which is a large part of the reason all the cost Basis’ are so high. I am not currently actively investing in my RRSP so those averages are likely to stay high in that account for the foreseeable future.

The last thing that I have to say is always do your own research. Do not buy a stock just because someone says to. You do not need any formal education in order to be a market analyst, (though most do have a post secondary education). Recommendations are fine to get investment ideas but make sure you always look into the companies yourself.

If you are new to investing don’t worry if your account value fluctuates some. The value of your individual stocks does not technically matter until you go to sell. I’m not saying hold a shit stock forever, but if you own stocks you believe are good don’t worry if they go down a bit short term. Hold on to them, average down a bit if you can and then sell once it reaches your profit goal or your making a profit and have another company you think is better to buy.

Thanks for reading.
