INK Canadian Insider Index soars 4.9% above November lows

Thank you for joining us in a weekly technical look at the mid-cap oriented INK Canadian Insider (CIN) Index. Last week, the Index put pedal to the metal as it continued a tremendous comeback from 4-month lows. It added nearly 21 points or 1.9% to close the week at 1132.54. The Index has now risen a Phoenix-like 4.9% from its lows of 1079.36 on Nov 14th and in fact swung so high it came within 8.2 points of its year high of 1147.38 previously hit in September.

Sound bites: Dippers Become Swingers

In my latest interview with Jim Goddard at Howestreet.com, I explain the key investing theme in our latest US Market INK report: the sea change facing investors after the election of Donald Trump. 

Robot Union Demands $2 an Hour

One subject that can always guarantee some angry emails and usually name-calling along lines of "I’m a moron to suggest that technological substitution has to be considered in so many areas from minimum wage, to government subsidies, healthcare reform and transit. It's a good bet these people won't want to consider the impact of technology on the Presidential election, where Donald Trump rode blue-collar job losses to the white house in some key states.

Climbing real yields continue to test the mettle of gold mining insiders

While gold stocks made up some lost ground last week with the S&P/TSX Gold Index rising 1.6%, it lagged both the INK Canadian Insider Index (+2.2%) and the broad S&P/TSX Composite (+2.1%). As we explain in our November INK Top 20 Gold stock report Will Trump times be tough times for gold miners (also vailable in our PDF store) following the Trump win we believe the direction of real yields in the United States may well determine the fortunes of gold miners over the next few months.

INK Canadian Insider Index Rebounds, Faces Heavy Resistance

Thank you for joining us in a weekly technical look at the mid-cap oriented INK Canadian Insider (CIN) Index.  The Index was heavily oversold at the time of our last update which followed the US election, and we weren't surprised to see it rally last week, gaining 24 points or 2% to close at 1111.60. 

Are a rallying Cameco and a crashing uranium trumpeting a bottom?

With speculation returning to the stock market and spurring on high-flying moves in sectors like gold, silver, lithium, and marijuana-related stocks over the past year, we look for where we might next see some outsized gains from beaten down assets. Lo and behold from the ashes we are starting to see uranium stocks, a painfully bruised and out of favour asset class, looking more and more attractive.

INK Canadian Insider Index deflates after US election

Thank you for joining us in a weekly technical look at the mid-cap oriented INK Canadian Insider (CIN) Index. Following the Nov 8th US elections which anointed outspoken reality-TV kingpin and real estate mogul Donald Trump as the president-elect, the Index moved inverse to the huge rally in the US markets and followed the sell-off in gold, as it tumbled 31 points or nearly 3% to 1087.65.

Diamond pioneer Gren Thomas takes a shine to gold, tin plays

For David Grenville (Gren) Thomas, the big score was the discovery of Diavik by his Aber Resources more than 20 years ago.

Thomas and his partners headed north and got to work in the early days of the staking rush following Chuck Fipke’s 1991 discovery of diamonds in the Northwest Territories. It took a few years, but in 1994 and 1995, Aber discovered the kimberlite pipes that became Diavik, Canada’s second diamond mine. Diavik, still producing, is a joint venture between 60% owner Rio Tinto (RIO*US) and Aber successor Dominion Diamond (DDC) (40%).

With Trump elected, will insider sentiment continue to move higher?

American insiders took advantage of falling share prices in the first week of November to increase their buying. Our INK US Indicator moved up to the 37% level, up from 30% last week. At 37% there are 37 stocks with key insider buying for every 100 with selling. Most encouraging was the uptick in sentiment among Industrials insiders. Our Industrials Indicator was back above 20% on Monday. Typically, when the indicator is below the 20% mark, the sector experiences weakness over the following 6 months.

INK Canadian Insider Index weakens ahead of US election

Thank you for joining us in a weekly technical look at the mid-cap oriented INK Canadian Insider (CIN) Index. Last week, the Index began by bouncing up and off its 20-day moving average toward the 1140 level, only to see its progress halt short of 1137.
