Sound Bites: the case for inflation and Canadian stocks

In my interview this week with Jim Goddard at Howestreet.com, I make the case that increases in government spending may wake the inflation bear out of its hibernation. In such an environment, the Canadian stock market could do quite well.

Sound Bites: Money laundering industry a big winner in Trudeau's war with small business

From a Vancouver perspective, the Justin Trudeau and Bill Morneau war with small business over proposed tax increases makes no sense. If this duo are really interested in tax fairness, why are they not devoting the same energy and government resources to cleaning up the money laundering industry and its related big dollar tax evasions?

INK Canadian Insider Index blasts through resistance

Updated - replaces chart and corrects weekly gain to 21 instead of 41; corrects RSI and MACD numbers in the first sentence of second paragraph

Thank you for joining us in a weekly technical look at the mid-cap oriented INK Canadian Insider (CIN) Index.

What's more, the Index now finds itself within striking distance, or 6 points, of its all-time highs, set back in February.

All normal as Canadian stocks break out

What a difference a week can make. All summer the mid-cap oriented INK Canadian (CIN) Insider Index had been trading in a range between 1,150 and 1,180. It was never able to fully break free of its 200-day moving average leaving sceptics to wonder if Canadian stocks were doomed for a year of poor performance on the back of poor oil markets and housing worries.

Last week the Index once again tried to muster the strength to breakout finishing at 1,190. This was the second time in a month it had pushed through 1,180, but this time it might be for real.

Sound Bites: A taxing risk to Canadian growth

Strong Canadian growth on the back of net tax cuts unleashed by the federal government in its 2016 budget, along with infrastructure spending that is just starting to kick in, should add some fuel to the fire for domestically-focused Toronto stocks. On Monday, the mid-cap oriented INK Canadian Insider (CIN) Index moved through 1,190 which is a key technical level
