January is almost finishing. Since I chose to work full time during the week, there is not much time to watch the market.
I found that I can get one Friday a month to look after my investments.
May be there is a way to do trading after hours. I haven't learned much about it. Hope, one of my readers will help me to find out that.
Now, I got a chance to buy Canadian Utilities for my TFSA. For people like me, who are lower income earners, maximizing TFSA is the first thing to do. So, I am concentrating more on my TFSA. The contribution room for this year is the same $5,500.
Recently I checked my contribution room at CRA website. I have room to add $29,000.
Let us talk about my investments for January: I bought Canadian Utilities (CU in TSX). 95 shares of CU can bring $133 in dividends . I have another utility company, AQN in my portfolio. I may not add more utilities to my portfolio.
The next investment is on myself: Few courses from the e-learning category of Toronto public library. They have Safari, Lynda.com, Gale Courses and Mango learning. I am interested in the health care and medical courses offered by Gale courses. That way, I can learn things like handling emergency situations for free of cost. Another course interests me is Pain assessment and management. In the future, as time permits, I would love to learn about meditation techniques too.
What do you think of my recent investments?
