March 2016 Performance

The rising Canadian dollar had a somewhat negative impact on projected dividend payments, as the exchange on some of my Canadian stocks that pay in US funds took a bit of a hit. Nonetheless, I'm still well ahead of plan on the dividends, and as there will likely be a few larger purchases this month, I should be able to bump it up.

I'm well on track for an excellent year, beating all the indexes I measure myself against. For the first quarter of 2016, almost all my groups are in positive territory, some by a significant degree. I have a dozen holdings that are holding on to gains of over 10% for the year so far.

Bear Stock: Superior Plus continues to be a bit of a drag on my portfolio, but it's been creeping back up. Hoping that it can hold the line and not take further losses until they can see the benefits of the Canexus merger.

Bull Stock: Innergex has been on a tear. Apart from being a renewable energy company in the midst of a seismic shift in the investment landscape preferring renewables over fossil fuel sources, they've announced their move in Europe with assets in France. Definitely happy to be holding on to this one for now.
