Realizing how little I get from my TSFA and RRSP, I decided to see if I could get better returns if I take care of it myself. Being the nerd I am, I first read a big bunch of books about investing. Long story short, most advice to research about the companies before to by (and that makes sens to me). So, following those advice I chose a random company (crescent point energy corp) and downloaded 4 years of annual report and the last quarterly reports so study while at work tomorrow. Then I realized it would take me the week (if lucky) to see clear in all that and that's just one company.
So that brings me to two questions:
1st, how far do you go in your research before to feel confident about buying into a company?
2nd, how is that working out for you?
