    Faye,

    Thanks for your Spring update. Being a Canadian, I have a question about your Enbridge's disposition history, specifically on the calculations of: Proceeds, ACB, Outlays, Gain/Loss

    I'm assuming the Outlay is your trading fee. Does that include the buy AND sell fees?

    How do you calculate Proceeds? Is it # shares * selling price - selling fee?

    How do you calculate ACB? Is it (# shares * buying price + buy fee) / # shares?

    To calculate, Gain/Loss, do you do: (Proceeds - ACB) / ACB?

    I have yet to take a tax course; that's why I'm asking about these calculations.

    Thanks,
    Canadian

    sshah,

    I purchased mine on Amazon.ca. I see that Amazon.com only has the 1999 Kindle version. Not a bad idea to take up that link shared by Eric.

    Mr. Lehman, I want to clarify that the bullet points were written by me. The "headings" I mentioned that the editor suggested were the subheadings to the article.

    Mr. Lehman, thanks for sharing the link to the top 10 dividend investing books from thedividendpig website. The author who wrote that is a financial planner with a Master of Degree in Finance. Regarding the "Magic Pants", if you're referring to Chuck Carnevale's article and the comment stream that followed, one can find it here: http://bit.ly/1p3QIOU Mr. Carnevale has 40 years of financial industry experience. The serious reviews which you speak about wouldn't be written by people like me. If you read my profile, you'll know what I mean. Anyone can write for SA, and anyone can read SA articles. My article may not be useful to you, but maybe to someone else. Who knows? If you don't like what you're reading, it just means you're not my target audience.

    Anyhow, I appreciate you taking the time to comment. Wish you have a good night.

    Thanks for the link, Cranky. I like looking at funds for the top holdings, and doing research on them to see if they might be a good fit into my portfolio.

    Jon, I like buying quality, but quality usually costs more. That is, paying for high quality at a slight premium or in fair value range. One might be able to get lower quality for a margin of safety, but how much of a margin of safety from fair value is enough?

    Josh Peters also mentions that he looks for high quality businesses before checking valuation.

    Mr. Lehman, please see my comment to RAS above. This is my first book review, and I was testing the waters. As stated before, I actually spent several nights writing the super long review on the book with summary of each chapter, plus, views added from my experience, but that didn't get published. Seriously, if I wanted to get page views, a book review will probably be the last category I should be writing for.

    Thank you for sharing the book's free PDF link. I didn't know it existed because I bought the book.

    I'm sorry this review wasn't up to your standard. Have you found book reviews on investing which you thought were worthy to read? If yes, do you mind sharing the links to them?

    Really, my intention was to share a good book that I just read. Hope you still have a good night.

    Cheers,
    Canadian

    RAS, I initially wrote this super long review on the book, where I summarized the main points of each chapter and added my point of views/experience into it, but the editor gave feedback with the headings above suggested. I really couldn't think of where the book might have fallen short, except perhaps getting the DGI concept imprinted in the readers' minds (not that it's bad to keep quality and long-term view in the head)...such that the minds might be too narrow. Of course, that's not the book's fault.

    I actually chuckled when I read your comment. ;)

    SDS, the book did well if it converted you. I think it's more relaxed being a DGI than being a speculator. :) I personally felt the compounding examples in chapter 2 illustrated the point really well and had an effect on me.
