I just realised this is my first post in a month. I’ve been pretty sick for going on 2 weeks now, and my head is just finally starting to become a bit more clear. Now on to the news…
We have officially accepted an offer on our cottage (pending financing gets approved). This is of course a little bittersweet, as we truly love going out there, and have enjoyed it tremendously over the past 6+ years. That said, we bought the place before we had kids, and the size/layout just aren’t ideal anymore with two little ones running around all over the place.
We still aren’t sure if/when we will get another place – but I’d be lying if I wasn’t a little excited to get some fresh capital to inject into the markets. Last month I did a summer stock screen (I’ll do one more this month, and then really dig into a few of the companies). In case you missed the last screen, the companies at the top of the list were:
- Exco Technologies
- Equitable Group INC
- Canadian Tire Corp
- Richelieu Hardware Ltd
- CCL Industries
- Andrew Peller Ltd
- CAE Inc
- Enghouse Systems Limited
- Canadian Western Bank
- Methanex Corp
- Alimentation Couche Tard
- TD Bank
Exco is already up 12% since I wrote the last article:(
Aside from pumping a little more into the TFSA(s), we are looking forward to using some of the proceeds to do some minor renovations at home, put a little bit more into the kids education fund and perhaps get a weekend away somewhere.
So long cabin life….until we meet again.
Here are just a few of my favourite pics from the last couple years out there…
I’ll be back next week with my August update! Have a great long weekend!
