Lululemon ( LULU ) Stock Position Update

Lululemon ( LULU ) Stock Position Update

I bought Lululemon stock when it took a beating after its earning reports  in end of March of 2017. See my rational behind buying the stock . I bought 145 stocks for $51.07 and currently the stock is trading at  $59.10.  That is a 15.7% return in three months. Which to me is a decent return for one of my trades for that time frame ! I was planning to hold on to it for longer – because I believed…

Priceline – Review

Priceline – Review

I have never reviewed any companies, restaurants etc on my blog as a standalone post . My experience with Priceline was so terrible that I felt it needed a standalone post for review !

This is the feature where you pick the star level , location and other amenities and provide a price and priceline tries to match…

Snapchat – Short Term Trading

Snapchat – Short Term Trading

This is one of my favorite stocks to speculate in. I usually keep a few stocks on my watch list and keep track of the range the stock trades in. Whenever I notice a significant pull back – I will step in to buy.  Some stocks I keep only for a short time – others for long.  My short term trades are usually in my TFSA and longer term trades in my RRSP. I have previously done short term trading…

I liked the deep dish pizza at Lou Malnati’s, but it wasn’t mind blowing as I was expecting…
