Colby’s Portfolio (As of January 1,2021)

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 received dividends from Manulife and SS&C Technologies Holdings. I did not buy or sell anything in my TFSA in December. Both Kirkland and TransAlta announced dividend increases this month as well. The majority of the percentage changes in the portfolio were due to decrease in the strength of the US dollar relative to the Canadian Dollar.

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 continued to by position in BCE because they have the ability to weather Covid 19 and are taking a beating right now leading to high yields on dividends that they are unlikely to cut or reduce. This should lead to decent long term upside as we come out of Covid, which will hopefully be soon but I am not getting my hopes up. I am starting to grow my position in Kirkland this month because they have no debt and are dropping quite a bit right now due to the large upswing in the market with the vaccine news that came out recently. This brings them into a price range I am happier buying into and I think they have large upside potential in the future.

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.

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.
