One of my goal for 2017 is to do monthly update of my net worth so let’s start with this one.

My net worth is going up again but next month it look like it will go down a little bit. Some big expense are coming like buying the small business Turbotax, which is around 100$ and paying my municipal tax, which are 600$ and the car license, which are around 200$. On the plus side my wife will make a little bit more next month since she found one new client (kid). We’ve made the choice that she will stay home for our baby since we think it’s the best for him, but this choice will bring home less money than before.

In January, I paid my credit card before the end of the month since I had the money and to start back budgeting. I found that was easier to start with 0$ on my credit card.

In January, our expense were  4059.62$ and our income were 5177.67$. Which make a surplus of 1118.05$. I had a boost in my income since my job pay my 10 sick day in the beginning of the year. Also, I invested in some washable diaper for my kid to save on the long term. This will be a subject of a post when I will finish crunching some number.

It look like I don’t have any saving at all, but since I’m using Tangerine for my account, I got all my money out of my saving account to my check account and I’m waiting until they have a new promotion with new deposit.

Readers : How was your January month ?

New Buy – Badger Daylighting LTD

Today, I’ve bought 9 stocks of Badger Daylighting LTD (BAD.TO) at 21.24$ each. This will add 0.297$ of monthly  dividends.

Badger Daylighting Ltd. (Badger) is a Canada-based company that provides non-destructive excavating services to the utility, transportation, industrial, engineering, construction and petroleum industries in Canada and the United States. The Company operates in segments, including Canada and the United States. Badger works for contractors and facility owners in the utility and petroleum industries. The Company’s technology is the Badger Hydrovac, which is used primarily for safe digging in congested grounds and challenging conditions. The Badger Hydrovac uses a pressurized water stream to liquefy the soil cover, which is then removed with a vacuum system and deposited into a storage tank. Badger manufactures its truck-mounted hydrovac units.

The company look to have a great potential and are giving some monthly dividends. This company also diversify my portfolio.

New buy : Bankers Petroleum Ltd –

Today, I’ve bought 41 stocks of Bankers Petroleum Ltd (BNK.TO) at 1.15$ each. This is a Canada-based oil exploration and production company that focus on assets in Albania.

I looked at the charts and it seems to have a great potential. Also, I was looking to invest in an oil company. This diversify my portfolio and since I have a big risk tolerance, I can get some risky stocks.

This stock adds to my day to day trading stocks.  For these stocks, I am not looking to keep them long terms since they are highly volatile, so I will trade them when I am happy with the profit I made from them.

New Buy : Titan medical inc –

Today, I’ve bought 76 stocks of Titan Medical Inc (TMD.TO) at 1.09$ each. I readed about this company and it seems to be promising. They are in the surgeon controled robotic sector, which seems a promising sector in my eye. Also, TMD.TO will make a demo the 16-17 march at a conference in the medical domain so this could help the company to get more visibility.

I was looking to get some risky stock in my portfolio to make it grow and get a better return. I needed to add some risky stock to get this category in my portfolio. Also these risky action, I consider it as day to day trading and some fun money.

Ps : I will post every new stock I buy or sell in the blog.
