RIM
Blackberry maker Research in Motion is doing really well this year :0) The cell phone maker’s stock price has gone up more than 100% since just half a year ago. Many people thought RIM was dead but investors are taking a second look now. As one of Canada’s most iconic tech companies I really hope they can make a come back. We sell a lot of resources in this country but it would be great to improve the number of knowledge jobs as well. RIM plans to releaseΒ its new product the BlackBerry 10 later this month. Will it be a successful launch or a big flop? Who knows. Disclaimer: I have 50 RIM shares myself.

Resource Conferences
Gold metal oreCambridge House International will be hosting a number of investment conferences throughout the US and Canada. Β Most of their events are free like the oneΒ I’m going to in Vancouver tomorrow. Last year more than 500 companies and a number of analysts gathered here to network and share ideas. They have another event held at the Telus Convention Centre in Calgary later this year. If you live in a city where they will come to I recommend going to these conferences. You will learn a lot about investing πŸ˜€

Random Useless Fact:Β You can save money by not buying new calendars every year. For example in 2013 you can re-use calendars from 2002, 1991, 1985, 1974, 1963, or 1957.
