Canada, Eh!!
Got some AAPL, GOOGL, FB, AMD, XEF, VXUS [trading and investment accounts]. Not full positions as would like to see how mkt behaves on Friday before adding anymore.

By fluke sold TQQQ yesterday.

Sold FB options for 1/2 loss when had taken as a given that would expire worthless.

Let's see what special investigation brings...

Topped up more IPL @ 26.19 - I'm now extremely overweight on this, but with today's drop, it's paying almost 6.5% dividend. Enough to cover my margin interest and more, so I'm willing to hold.

TD entered buy zone. I have bids below today's low @61.4

LB - did risk reversal by selling 55C and buying 45P for 60c CR = leaving 47.5C/2x52.5C ratio spread
After spending many years in Wall Street and after making and losing millions of dollars I want to tell you this: it never was my thinking that made the big money for me. It was always my sitting. Got that? My sitting tight!

MoMo stocks like AAPL, FB, AMZN, etc will get killed if this correction to continue. Too much hot money were chasing them and they will surprise to the downside.

How about the ALA.R subscription receipts? 7% yield and potential upside when the deal closes

Wondering if i should swap VSN for more ALA & IPL
:idea: :) :lol: :razz: :D

I got tired of holding Hydro One, and finally got rid of it. It's been dead money to me for the last year.
