In the latest issue of Insights, we look at some concerning market developments ahead Wednesday's Federal Reserve interest rate decision. The breakdown in oil & gas stocks is particularly troubling.

Video Summary: When could the shorts be squeezed at Paramount Resources?

Insights: Canadian stocks still winning the trade war

In the latest edition of Insights, we check the relative performance of Canadian versus US stocks since December 1st of last year when Donald Trump issued Xi Jinping a tariff ultimatum during their Buenos Aires dinner. Our broadcast of the week looks at a possible signal for small-cap oil patch stocks while our insider of the week is one of Canada's most successful entrepreneurs who is buying an out-of-favour oil & gas name.


Howestreet Interview: Europe holds the key for unlocking the Canadian market

In the first segment of my latest interview, I explain why we are looking at financials such as Canadian Western Bank (Mostly Sunny; CWB) and AGF Management (Sunny; AGF) for clues as to when we might see a turnaround among lagging small-cap oil & gas stocks. This is a theme we have discussed in recent morning reports on CWB and on Yangarra Resources (Mostly Sunny; YGR). In the interview, I try to tie it all together.

Odds are stacked against shorts targeting Well Health Technologies

While the short positioning in Paramount Resources (Mixed; POU) remains off its peak seen in mid-May, short bets against the stock remain highly elevated. The stock has recently pulled back from a rally off its June lows and short sellers seem generally content to hold on to their bets for a stock breakdown.

A notable change in our Top 10 most shorted list this week is the disappearance of Stingray Group (Mixed; RAY) due to an increase in the stock's estimated float. That paved the way for Laurentian Bank (Mixed: LB) which takes the 10th spot. Based on our signals, the shorts may be on to something there. In terms of signals, Cargojet (Mixed; CJT) has flipped back to a bearish setup.

Video Summary:Yangarra Resources sliding as investor skepticism clips small-caps

Here is the video summary of the July 17th INK Morning report where we suggest that a break-out in Canadian financials may be what is needed to signal better days ahead for small-cap oil & gas names.
