My Latest Decision to Buy

This is a company I saw a few years ago and considered buying shares in way before their shares spiked in price. At the time I discovered them, their shares were around $19.00 each.

I was not prepared at that time to spend that kind of money and I had never even bought shares at all with anyone yet, however, since then, their shares shot up to the $40 range per share, causing them to do what is called a "stock split".. meaning that if you owned 10 shares worth $40 per share, the company reduces the price of the shares by half which makes the shares you own wirth $20/each and doubling the quantify or number of shares you own so everything stays the same for you as an owner.

Before the Split:
You have 10 Shares @ $40 each:
Value = $400.00

After the Slplit:
You have 20 Shares @ $20 each:
Value = $400.00

If you do not yet own own shares the company, a split helps people who want to buy them because now they can afford to buy share at $20/each as opposed to paying $40/each.

All of this to say that after the split, Badger's (BAD-T) shares are currently costing around $37 bucks each, and the company is still doing quite well.

Looking at the stock chart the prices although a little high, are in a bit of a dip right now so it might be a good time to buy. Also the summer work season is ahead when business picks up so it might be a good time to get in on the long-term with this great Canadian company.

I am going to slowly start buying shares even if only a few at a time because after reading several of their MD&A and Annual Reports over the past five years or so, I have seen nothing but growth for this company.

WHAT DO THEY DO?
They basically go around with their fleet of giant trucks you have seen on the streets which look like big vacuum trucks, with a huge tank and big black hoses on them.. however, Badger Daylighting's trucks are not giant vacuums, they are high-pressure water excavators (diggers) which use water to dig holes in the ground without destroying pipes or other underground infrastructure.

Digging without damage basically. Huge in the oil and gas industry, as well as other utilities and municipalities where you have to get under ground to fix old pipes or stuff like that without digging up the ground and risking the breaking gas, water, and other pipes.

They are expanding and have been for years. With the split stock price and the latest little bit of a dip in the price lately if you have money.. I think I can safely recommend a buy!

If you want to go for investing in a business that is a little different and more interesting and simple to follow and understand this is one of them.

Check out the link below for an article on the company and see their stock price chart at the end to prove what I am talking about regarding their growth and the current "dip" in price.

It is the winter season in Canada so business is a little slow right now at least here, so get in now and watch the growth over the summer. Go long term with these guys I can't see you losing. I am not a professional investment advisor etc.. just going by what I see. Invest at your own risk :)

Good News Update on Catch the Wind

I am posting this update to let others know what I am thinking as I hold shares in a company, and how I react to press releases from the companies I hold.

At this particular moment, I am feeling a little optimistic since Catch the Wind (CTW) released a few new press releases demonstrating to me, forward movement or progress. (keeping in mind at all times that I could lose everything at any time)

In one press release dated March 19, 2012, CTW informed us of a partnership between CTW and Sanmina-SCI in Kanata, Ontario, under which a manufacturing services agreement will see Sanmina-SCI  produce and assemble the Vindicator® optical control system (OCS) units at its state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in Kanata, Ontario. Under the agreement, Sanmina-SCI will also provide technical, engineering, design and other professional services related to the manufacture of the OCS. This is great because now CTW has a place that will manufacture the Vindicator OCS units for them and will a…

Diamonds and Uranium and Investing Oh My!

About the new diamond mine (Stornoway)  that I own 500 shares of. About half the shares I bought around 2012 were at approximately .66 cents each. Another batch I bought at a later date were around .97 cents and the final batch I bought totalling my share ownership to 500 shares was approximately .73 cents each. Currently the shares are running at around $1.03 which is a good increase for some of my shares. The Stornoway Diamond mine in Quebec is slated to open in December of 2016 so hopefully I can time the selling of some of my shares when they are up. My guess is that they may spike after announcements or press releases in November/December saying the diamond mine is officially opening and shortly after that ... Where I believe they will slowly start to drop over time again with occasional spikes on good press releases.From much of the research I have done into many other mining companies and their share prices ..  It seems the companies highest share prices are found very early wh…

Fourth Purchase - More Shares of Catch the Wind (CTW)

I recently purchased 600 more shares of Catch the Wind (CTW) because they had fallen to quite a low of just .11 cents per share and I thought now is a good time to buy more and potentially profit from any further increases in share price.

I would not do this with just any shares randomly, however, I feel pretty confident that Catch the Wind (CTW) is going to eventually make a profit since what they are doing is very timely given that the green movement is still rather young, and since (CTW) have never given up despite legal and logistical difficulties they experienced as the result of disputes between themselves and their former colleagues, where (CTW) ended up relocating to a new facility and becoming embroiled in a legal battle between themselves and their former colleagues over withheld equipment and financial compensation matters to name a couple.

To recap, I bought 600 shares of (CTW) in March of 2012 at a cost of just .11 cents each. The value of my purchase at the time was $66…
