Climbing out of the hole!

5 Aug
  1. My buy in price for FSYS was $28.70 USD against weak Canadian dollar.  When it took a tumble, I tried to buy another 100 shares @ $26.25, but only 5 shares got bought and I quickly cancelled the rest of the order.  Days after, the stock went on a free fall down to low of $24.75.  Since then it had dragged on for a bit.  A long ride up back to my buy in price.  Today, they released stellar earnings for FSYS.  Good news for me.  The share price jumped $5.25, ending up at $34.83 USD against strong Canadian dollar meaning I’m losing out on the currency conversion!  Still an amazing feat for a one day gainer!
  2. Long time holder of NOT owning 2600 shares has given me a sore red eye for over the past half year.  Today, NOT gained 20 cents after a couple months trading at its low.  Finally see the daylight of this thing.  I still need another 58 cents to recoup my losses.  Waiting for big news, NOT is waiting for a good launch!! 

Roger That!

Slogan:  “Rogers Communications Inc. is a leading provider of Wireless, Digital Cable TV, High Speed Internet and Home Phone services to consumers and businesses in Canada.” 

Who doesn’t have a cell phone in this day and age is living in a bubble.  Even me, one who never chats on the phone, have gotten a cell phone with Fido.  I got a prepaid service with Fido at $20 plus taxes.  It services my needs.  Rogers also owns Fido which is a major player in the wireless industry in Canada.

Aug 3rd, I picked up 200 shares of RCI.B at $36.00.  Dividends are coming up on September 9th.  I can only see accumulation from here on out.  Up and down the market goes, can you ride the waves of this unruly waters? 

Previous pick for BMO also had a nice run up to their dividend record date.  I sold out before collecting the dividend because the stock has reached its pinnacle stage.
