Colby’s Portfolio (As of October 2,2020)

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).

Margin Account Holdings:

There were no changes to my margin account this month.

Interlapse Technologies/Coronado Resources (INLA) TSXV
Overall Profit/Loss: TBD
Cost Basis: $0
Div Yield:$0
Percentage of Portfolio: 100%
Change from last month: 0%

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.

I opened positions in Bank of Nova Scotia, and Manulife Financial because I figure financial stocks are a bit beat down right now and have fairly high dividend yields as well (Over 5%). All of these stock also have a P/E ratio under 10 at the moment. I also feel that Bell will likely be able to weather Covid 19 with minimal loss in earnings, though the share price has lagged along with other telecoms so far. TransAlta I mainly bought because their share price dipped a bit and I had a small amount of cash left over after all my other share purchases.

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.

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.

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.
