Steppenwulf portfolio 2019

I gain so much from viewing everyone's portfolios - Saul's especially of course, but I
learn from everyone who posts (my best individual result came as a result of Putnid's post on ENPH).

I decided I have to at least post my annual results. **My over all gain this year was 63.13%**
Thanks all for the ideas and thought process that helped me get such a great result.

First of all, a little info about how I invest. 

  * I tend to buy and sell less often than most people on this board, I think.

  * I'm diversified into different types of stock. "Saul style" stocks make up only about half of my
    portfolio. 

  * I have a significant amount of value and dividend stocks.

  * I also buy speculative stocks. These are usually stocks that have had an extreme fall and
    are out of favour - they can be both growth and value stocks, and sometimes can be both at 
    the same time (at least in my mind).

  * I have some Gold and gold/silver miners. This seems prudent in the era of Trump, and provides me
    a source of money to invest in deals if there is a big drop over the whole market - "Buy when
    there is blood in the street - even if it is your blood"

  * Since I am a Canadian, and many of my accounts are in Canada, I choose Canadian companies when
    they are available, for tax and other reasons

  * Since I buy different styles, I think I have more stocks than most. I can manage this
    by only looking at my stocks when something significant happens - months have gone by when I
    barely glance at my portfolio.
