Energy will be key for Canadian investors and politicians in 2019

In his latest Howe Street interview with Jim Goddard, INK Research CEO Ted Dixon sees the Energy sector as being key to the fortunes of both Canadian investors and politicians in 2019. Based on INK's indicators he also sees a period of consolidation ahead for Canadian stocks. Meanwhile, in the United States investors seem inclined to favour high-priced growth stocks again. We are seeing some of that in Canada too, as cannabis stocks enjoy renewed investor interest despite the risks.

Muir concerned First Nations being exploited by professional pipeline protestors

In his latest interview with Jim Goddard, Stewart Muir of ResourceWorks.com worries that the anti-Coastal GasLink pipeline protest in Northern B.C. that has included a blockade has little to do with indigenous rights and more to do with groups that do not want Canada to develop its hydrocarbon assets.

With the experience of last October fresh in our minds when Canadian stocks jumped at the start of the month, only to swoon in the following weeks, we are hesitant to make too much out of the move. However, there are some encouraging signs.

Key INK stock market metrics remain unhealthy

In his latest Howestreet.com broadcast with Jim Goddard, INK CEO Ted Dixon worries that the Fed is looking backwards at positive US economic data instead of forwards at warning signs such as housing. If the Fed does not hold up on its rate hikes, they risk going too far. American insiders and stocks in the U.S. Financials sector are still not confirming a base in share prices and the Fed is probably one of the reasons why.
