INK Canadian Insider Index beat the S&P/TSX Composite by 5% annually

Over the years, at INK we have been sharpening our focus on insider commitment: the amount of stock that public company officers and directors are buying and holding. Insider commitment forms the foundation of the rules-based INK Canadian Insider (CIN) Index. Our index process equally considers insider commitment with valuations and price momentum to identify 50-stocks which as group should offer attractive opportunity in the Canadian market.

Does it work? Or as a Globe and Mail writer recently asked when looking at the Horizons Cdn Insider Index ETF (HII) which uses the index, is it a solid strategy or gimmick? Instead of relying on opinion, let's look at the data.

As Trump plays with trade fire, brace for a hot summer

Perhaps everything is going to turn out just fine. The American tactic of slapping new tariffs on just about every country in the world of consequence could turn out to be a brilliant negotiating strategy. Tariffs could end up forcing America's friends and foes to come to the table to cut historic deals of substance. Canada, Europe, Japan, and Mexico may all agree to lower trade barriers and tariffs on America's terms while Beijing finds common ground on the issue of technology transfer with Washington. This could all turn out to be one big summer of love, albeit tough love.

As insider stocks hit all-time highs, keep an eye on the HII

On Tuesday and Wednesday, the INK Canadian Insider (CIN) Index closed at new all-time highs. Despite this strong show of success, the mainstream media would have you believe there is a lack of opportunity in the Canadian market. We saw the same media sentiment back in February when Maclean’s ran a story labeling the Canadian market the worst in the developed world. They blamed a lack of technology stocks.

While more technology stocks would be nice, Maclean’s was wrong. As a member of the Canadian Insider community, I think you will agree with me that opportunity always exists if you know where to look.

Update on Outlook.com and Hotmail.com email issue

Further to my post earlier today, our technical team has identified a possible solution which should be implemented tonight.
In the meantime, archived versions of recent Canadian Insider Club Morning and Market reports are available in the Reports section of the website.

Important notice for Outlook.com and Hotmail.com users

We have had inquiries from users who have Outlook.com and Hotmail.com accounts asking why they are not getting email alerts and reports. This is due to an issue beyond our control, and likely is due to an algorithm change at Microsoft on or around March 15th that is blocking our emails for some Outlook.com and Hotmail.com email addresses.

Sound Bites: Pot stock consolidation and the cryptocurrency trust factor

In my latest interview with Jim Goddard on Howestreet.com, we discuss how Canadian marijuana firms are scrambling to increase capacity through expansion, mergers, and takeovers in preparation for legalization later this hear. Investors seem to be betting that these companies will be ready to deliver big profits soon. Meanwhile, insiders were selling the recent rally. So, was the sell-off last week a short-term buying opportunity?
