Tim Horton’s Quickpay Card?
Saw it advertised on line and now I am looking at a glossy advertising blurb from one of the stores. I thought that investing in Tim Horton’s might be a dangerous thing, due to the over saturation of the market, however, Canadians and their love for a “double, double” has proven me to be as bad a stock prognosticator, as I claim to be.
Quarterly earnings rose to C$67.4 million ($67.9 million), or 36 Canadian cents (36 cents) per share, from $51.8 million, or 27 cents per share in the prior year period.
Just goes to show that sometimes stocks will succeed, in spite of what “experts” claim.
As for the Tim Horton’s Quickpay card, holy crap, now these guys are thinking. No interac charges, they get to keep all that money, and they get to track consumer usage as well? Wow, this one is another great idea (a little late given Starbucks has had it for a while, but still, better late than never). I like this idea as a possible shareholder (I do not hold shares in Timmy’s currently).
Out of Lu Lu Lemon
So I did finally buy some Lu Lu Lemon under the guidance of my wife. Her reasoning was that every young lady she saw at a Gym or at a Basketball tournament had the Lu Lu Lemon logo on some of their “exercise clothing”. Yes, it is a thin hunch, but I bought in and it went DOWN. Oh well, I put in a stop sell so that I didn’t lose my shirt and stopped looking. A month passed and last week I noticed I was in the black by a lot, so I changed my Stop Sell to a higher value, and LLL.TO crashed through that value, so now I am out. My wife is not happy, but we made a tidy profit on the sale, so I am happy for now. Remember the Stop Sell in Green Line, BMO Nesbitt-Burns or any other on line investment house, is our friend!
I may buy in again later, but not where it stands right now, and it is a very volatile stock right now.
Halloween Candy in stores in September? Why you may ask? Most of us know why, we think we are going to buy the Candy and be done with it, but very few of us have the “intestinal fortitude” to have a box of “Kit Kats, Crisy Crunch and Smarties” sitting in our house without snacking ourselves and then rushing out on October 30th to buy MORE candy! Never question why stores are selling things, they are doing it for a very good reason.
