Following the new listing and trading on the NYSE of Aphria Inc., the company has also changed the ticker of the shares listed in Canada on the Toronto Stock Exchange to APHA.

The ticker of the stocks in our portfolios have been changed accordingly.

Here is below the complete press release:
LEAMINGTON, ON , Oct. 30, 2018 /CNW/ - Aphria Inc. ("Aphria" or the "Company") (TSX: APH) and (US OTC: APHQF) announced today that its common shares have been approved for listing on the New York Stock Exchange ("NYSE") and will commence trading effective the open of markets on November 2, 2018 .

Aphria's shares will trade on the NYSE under ticker symbol "APHA". The Company's ticker symbol on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) will also change from "APH" to "APHA", effective November 2, 2018 . Existing shares of Aphria, which previously traded on the OTCQB under the ticker symbol "APHQF" will now trade on the NYSE.

"Listing on the NYSE provides Aphria with access to the largest equity market in the world, with increased exposure to a vast array of US institutional and retail investors. This strategic move aligns directly with our growth ambitions as we enter an elite peer group of respected, high-profile corporate brands listed on the NYSE," said Vic Neufeld , Aphria CEO.

Mr. Neufeld added: "We are excited to usher in a new era with the recent legalization of adult-use cannabis in Canada and as we aim to further expand our footing in exciting markets such as Latin America , the Caribbean and Europe . Aphria is well-positioned to capitalize on this fast-growing industry."

Upon commencement of trading on the NYSE, Aphria intends to voluntarily delist its shares from the OTCQB. While shareholders are not required to take any action, the Company recommends that holders who bought shares on the OTCQB monitor their institution/brokerage account to ensure their holdings are correctly reflected under the new ticker symbol.

Hi Boingo,

Please refer to this article.

Questrade has hidden fees called ECN fees. I realized it after opening Questrade account. Questrade fee is never $4.95, it is always $4.95 + ECN fees. Sometimes this ECN fee is more than $9 depending on the volume of shares you trade. So you may end up paying $12, $13, or even $15 dollars depending on volume of shares per trade and cost of each share. Other times, you get lucky and pay less than $9 per trade.

Please call Questrade and inquire about ECN fees if you need more details.

Hi boingo,

SSP is essentially a momentum strategy.  What we want is to buy a stock at a low price that is quickly going up to a high price and then sell.  The trick is not to be leaping in to early on a stock that might have only had one quick small move or to be too late and buying a stock as its bubble bursts.

Each portfolio just waits the given number of weeks after the base one and issues a buy if the base is still holding at that point.

The four week delay does seem to be the best.

Often I use the picks in the base portfolio to do research into the stocks - if I like what I see I might buy early.  Otherwise I wait the four weeks.

Hi boingo,

Short answer - yes.

With each days e-mail there is a direction of indicator and also the alert level.  This is the  TSX index level which if crossed would change the direction.

While I do not necessary rush into cash when it goes down it is a good indicator if buying is a good idea.  Historically SSP portfolios do not do well during down markets.

Hi boingo,

Welcome to the Forum.  Every broker has their good and bad points and it can be rather difficult to determine with certainty ahead of time which might be the cheapest.  It does strongly depend on the number of trades, size of trades and total account holdings.  All offer additional discounts for larger customers. (strangely some claim not to!)

Questrade, for instance, gives me trades at 1 cent a share to a 6.95 maximum but charges for data ($134/month for the data you would likely need for SSP [before discounts]) so this will work best if you do a lot of trades, mostly small volume trades, or trade without data.

Banks, on the other hand, usually include data but charge higher commissions (typically ~$10) so high volume trading of small lots can start to add up rapidly.  On the other hand a buy and hold strategy would probably be the cheapest here.

There are other things to consider:  With Questrade, an electronic fund transfer to or from your bank account will be completed the next day, whereas with Scotia iTrade it will take the full three days allowed.  (I've also known them to hit me with a five day hold on the funds when they arrive at the bank.)

The Ultimate Price Momentum v4+ portfolio duplicates the Ultimate Price Momentum v2 portfolio when the Market Timing Indicator is UP and is 100% cash when the indicator is DOWN

The market timing indicator currently indictes its down and so several portfolios are currently 100% cash.  So it literally sells all holdings when the market indicates as being down?  Is there an article that explains the workings of this indicator more?  Specifically, is there specific threshold that the markets/stocks must hit before it considers dumping it all?  I would assume it wouldnt be when the index drops 1 point  Wink

Thank you.

Super Stock Picker very much intrigues me and want to follow it precisely, but with a potential for a high # of buys and sells (ie, Price Momentum can hold up to 10 stocks) it seems commissions can understandably get crazy high quickly.

So,  I'm wondering what discount broker you guys that run Super Stock Picker, and those who read this forum, use.  For me, because i'm a noob i had been using my bank (TD) for several years but didn't realize until recently that i was getting shafted for things like inactivity.  So i've been doing some research recently by hunting for other Canadian discount brokers (ideally, not one of the big banks) and am strongly leaning towards questrade after reading this in-depth questrade review or even Interactive Brokers since both their commissions appear to be the cheapest i've found.  They dont have an inactivity fee, but IB does have one though  Sad .  Are there better alternatives that i should consider?  Ideally, one that has low (to none  Grin) in commissions (if volume is high enough) and no inactivity or hidden fees.

Although i will be starting with a small investment in Ultimate Price Momentum v4 (yay! i'm subscribed to the daily emails!) my intent is to add more funds every month and follow Stock Picker very closely -- every buy; every sell.  But will trade volumes get so high (including re balancing buys/sells) that maybe even exploring a stock company's "high volume trader" accounts might be the best option when using Super Stock Picker?  Most high volume accounts offered charge a monthly/quarterly fee though.  Decisions...Decisions.  Undecided

I'm still a bit confused by the delay filter that is used for the Ultimate portfolios.  And please forgive me for my amateur knowledge in this.  I am new to investing but am very much eager to get my finances in order and your program seems a great choice for me.

So, regarding the delay filter.  So it's a delay imposed by your software for 1,2,3,4, or 5 weeks before it performs an actual buy/sell into/out of the portfolio? So in that delay period i assume then it gathers more data about its underlying stocks and if during that period it changes it minds it will do so (e.g. if at the end of the day it wants to sell all holdings then it must wait 1 week for Ultimate v1 and if during that time the holdings performance changes then that sell is cancelled).

So then i assume this mean the software does not send email alerts on its intentions to buy/sell for 1 (or more) weeks or will one still get email alerts each day about the software intentions to buy/sell.  I'd prefer to get email alerts for say Ultimate v4 and v5 only.

Still researching more about your portfolios and tracking how well they are against other popular portfolios such as Couch Potato but so far i am very much liking what i see.  I do have some questions but seems best to do more checking through this forum to find my answers before posting.

It might take me some more days of researching this before i get the full confidence to pull the trigger and use my available cash to start slow but matching what your picker is doing.  Right now v4 seems more ideal for me.  Very fun stuff.

Hi new investor,
And Hi Bryan,(nice to read you again)

Happy to see some new life on the SSP Forum.
I come somewhat late in the discussion.

New Investor:

I think that following UPMv2 was a good idea.
But 15% loss seems a big loss though: Y to D, this has been the best performer of the 5 Momentum portfolios, with a lean 1.16% gain.
Have you read attentively how to build your portfolio and make the necessary adjustments when new orders come in?
If you have not done it yet, you should really read the "How it works", and take all the time necessary to understand it thoroughly.
Then if you have some minimal spread sheets programing abilities, you will be able to weight each of the stocks properly.

Although I follow strictly ... on "paper" on my spread sheets all 5 Momentum portfolios, I have started to give the stocks good checks before I got in.
The markets have been pretty volatile, but investors too complacent.
Each time a new stock comes in, I do a good fundamental research, then I wait for the right moment to get in, mostly based on the ATR 14.
So no, I do not follow the portfolio rules that I have worked so hard to program.

For some strange reason that SSP could explain, the portfolio UPMv4 that used to be the most profitable (and the most followed) is not as good as previous.
I started to stick more with UPMv2, that seemed to do better, it gives me time to watch the stock while they are in UPMv1), but as I said, I do not follow the rules strictly: I buy when I think it will be good, and get out very fast (Just got out of SHOP with a decent gain, but did not hold long: valuation is very high for a stock that will be great when it starts to make profits...)

But since a few weeks, even year to date, things for the Momentum Portfolios are not going as well as they used to.

The winner is the Earnings Estimate Upgrades Weekly with almost 30% Y to D.

It seems that investors have changed, and are afraid of stocks that have already had a good run.
And that they tend to trust the analysts more then ever.

I will have to adapt and make a new sheet with the same calculations for the Earnings Estimate Upgrades Weekly. It is easy, but I am so lazy and busy since I got my new young dog: she is so full of energy, and brings me so much joy, that I spend less time on investing (and doing pretty good too, especially in my US portfolio: 15% Y to D).

Anyway I hope we will see other discussions on this forum that used to be very active.

And if you read this, a good thank to all the SSPs: hope you are doing good.
