Colby’s Portfolio (As of April 2,2021)

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 a dividend from Visa, Penske, SS&C, Manulife, and a special distribution from Stellantis. I also increased my positions in Kirkland at $42.06 and Bell at $55.76. I also opened a new position in Power Corporation of Canada at $32.92.

Margin Account Holdings:

There were no changes to my margin account this 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.

In my TFSA I increased my positions in Kirkland and Bell last month because their share prices had been struggling a bit earlier in the month which allowed me to get in at prices that I felt were pretty low. Bell also helped me to offset the lower dividend rate that Kirkland has which is nice because I am still over half a percent below my goal of at least a 3% yield on my investments. I also opened a position in The Power Corporation of Canada because I feel they have a bit of room for growth still in their share price and they also have a nice dividend yield of almost 5.5% at the moment.

I was actually able to do most of my buying for the month in my RRSP thanks to my tax refund, which gave me a decent chunk of change to play with. I continued to average down on Kirkland because they continue to be at a price I find attractive. I also bought a little more Dover because their share price has been struggling lately as well though this remains a very small position in my portfolio. I also increased my RioCan holdings because they are probably still 6 months plus away from really even starting to recover from Corona so their share price remains pretty low for the time being with a relatively high dividend yield. I also increased my position in Manulife despite the fact they are way higher than my previous purchases because I think they still have quite a bit of growth left in their share price in my opinion. Empower was partially because I think Holley will do quite well when it first lists and partially emotional because I want to be a part of this aftermarket parts company. It’s generally a bad idea to invest on emotion so I tried to keep the position pretty small. Plus I’ve given them enough money over the years so what’s a little more anyways.

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.
