Miners top the April INK Edge Top 40

Late last night we posted our April INK Edge Top 40 stocks on the INK Research website for subscribers. Saskatchewan focused Foran Mining Corporation (FOM) took the top spot. Miners in general have had a strong showing this month: Claude Resources Inc. (CRJ) and Dominion Diamond Corporation (DDC) helped to account, with Foran and other miners, for five out of the top ten spots, and, all told, Basic Materials (25%) edged out Financials (22.5%) to maintain its lead in the Top 40's sector allocation.

Radio interview: Canadian insiders edge out of the defensive zone

With hockey playoffs in full swing, on Saturday's edition of This Week in Money I explained to host Jim Goddard how insiders are edging out of the defensive zone. Less REITs and slightly greater risk in the Energy sector point to a more growth-oriented posture among insiders. These moves might also suggest that insiders feel long-term Canadian bond rates may have seen their lows at least for now.

Number Cruncher: health care, industrials and tech: 10 top-ranked stocks

What are we looking for?

The 10 highest ranking stocks in some of Canada’s most innovation-dependent sectors: health care, industrials and technology (HITs). Rankings are determined by the INK Edge V.I.P. criteria (valuations, insider commitment and price momentum). This is the same approach we apply across the broad market to determine membership for the INK Canadian Insider Index, which is used by the Horizons Canadian Insider Index ETF (HII).

No Twisting by the Pool for Canadian Insiders or Investors

In the wake of the prolonged 1980-82 UK recession, pop band Dire Straits released a tongue and cheek swing record Twisting by the Pool romanticizing the good life on Europe's Mediterranean coast. The song popped into my mind after reading the Federal Reserve's monetary policy statement today. For some reason, the US Federal Reserve has deemed it fit to try and flatten the yield curve by selling short-term bonds and buying bonds with maturities of over six years. While I know this was rumoured in the market for some time, based on today's late day action in the bond and equity markets I would suggest that there was some skepticism that the Fed would actually do this.
