Bought 1000 shares of BB from play money. Very close to the money I made when BB was on the way up. Short term, will sell them before or after the next financial report.

Found a home for about $27k that's been burning a hole in pocket (actually wife's RRIF)

part in PVS split pfd PVS.PR.F and part in Capital Power 2024 bond. Overall yield about 4% for next 4 or 5 years.

Will buy 250 shares of QSR today for my wife's TFSA. That will use up the remaining cash in account so she will be fully invested.
Just educated myself a little on QSR. 3 chains - Timmies, Burger King and Popeyes. Competition? Wendys McDonalds? Not too sure about some of the things they are doing at Timmies. Hope it works out for you.

Never been able to bring myself to buy QSR. Timmies has had its day in the sun and now seems bent on non-performing (stores/staff/food), I dislike Burger King burgers, and have not yet tried the new Popeyes that opened locally. Course Americans live on this stuff, so WTFDIK. Chart seems to look okay but not exciting.

The one I really missed was the A&W royalty fund.

I considered QSR, but it didn't make it into my Growth portfolio. But it continues to be a candidate and I'll be reviewing the portfolio in December.

They have had a decent pull back recently. I like most of their outlets and enjoy Teen burgers from time to time. Go to https://awcoupon.ca/en to get some good deals.

I don't like Timmy's coffee or their frozen donuts, Burger King is often inedible. Not sure about Popeyes...some of my rotund friends seem to enjoy it.

Just horrible what's happened to Tim Hortons... the slide over the years. I remember when the donuts were actually good!

Today's donuts aren't worth buying. I wouldn't even pay 25 cents for one.

Instead, I can actually get much better donuts freshly made at my local Safeway. They have a deep fryer and make these beautiful donuts. I just discovered this. I can't figure out a single reason to go to Tim Hortons, and I used to go all the time.

Getting back to Newfoundlander's purchase today, if he did so, there was good rationale for QSR in G&M today. The big upside is ex-North America and it is hard to argue against it. Our judgement may be unduly influenced by the domestic Timmies situation which is only part of the organization.

Vanadium prices are down at the moment. As far as I can tell, most of the (active) mines are actually in China while quite a few of them are being prospected around North America. This might seem like a losing bet but I deemed it important to share. Not as safe as gold, of course. I don't know about mining as much (or minerals for that matter) yet I know this is used in reinforced steel and vitamins so I'm seeing lots of mechanical breakdowns when these operations go full fledged.
