Portfolio Updates

Portfolio Update – December 2013

What a year for the stock market! I ended off the year with a return around 14% for my portfolio, but was not fully invested until December as I was trying to time the market. As a result, unfortunately, a good chunk of my portfolio didn’t see the gains that the year brought. I know […]

Portfolio Update – July 2013

Man, has it been that long since I’ve done a portfolio update? Since I’m not too active on my own portfolio, once a quarter may make sense. We will see! July ended up being quite a good month for most markets, so the increase in the portfolio is always nice to see. I always have […]

Portfolio Update – March 2013

So after completing my taxes, I found myself with a bit of new RRSP contribution room. Thing is, it might make sense for me to wait until next year to contribute, as I will be earning a full year’s income instead of only 8 month as I will be this year. Decisions, decisions. I haven’t […]

Portfolio Update – January 2013

The market rally since the beginning of the year has been great for my overall portfolio value, but a bit crappy because I want to make some purchases. I know, I know, I shouldn’t be timing the market. I transferred a chunk of my savings over into my investment account for my TFSA contribution and to increase […]

Portfolio Update – December 2012

The year ended off pretty well for my portfolio, even though the TSX only posted a 3% gain for 2012. Hopefully, the market will tank a bit once I get my TFSA contributions in so I can make some purchases. If only the market works like that, hey? So this is what my investment portfolio […]

Portfolio Update – November 2012

The market took a bit of a hit after the elections but the lower prices didn’t stay low very long. No moves this month again but debating whether or not to dump XIN, XSP and CRS. I would use the money towards more ETFs. Also looked into VXUS vs. VEU, and might start adding VXUS […]

Portfolio Update – October 2012

No moves in October for me, so just watching the dividends coming in. It will be interesting to see how the market reacts as a result of the elections today. So this is what my investment portfolio currently looks like: TFSA – Stocks (CRS, SLF), ETFs (VTI, XSB, XBB) RRSP – ETFs (XBB, XSP, XIN, […]

Portfolio Update – September 2012

No moves in September for me, but it is the end of the third quarter, so lots of dividends coming in! As both my RRSP and TFSA have been maxed out for the year, the portfolio will probably remain unchanged for the rest of the year. So this is what my investment portfolio currently looks […]
