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.

Are quietly climbing microcaps and commodities foretelling a return to risk and speculation?

We are pleased to celebrate the re-launch of Canadian Insider by sharing some thoughts on the market. 

We begin with a particularly noteworthy chart. The iShares Russell Microcap Index Fund (IWC*US) is a chart I have been following closely. It may surprise people that this fund which holds small cap companies in diverse sectors, has been outperforming the US and Canadian market for about a year and has in the past few sessions, broken out to a multi-year high - importantly, with very little attention from the financial media.

Ross Beaty beefs up junior holdings

Vancouver mining magnate Ross Beaty has been dubbed a "broken slot machine" for his track record of identifying mineral deposits, developing them and selling them to majors.
 
Beaty's latest scores were the sales last year of Augusta Resources, of which he was a 10% shareholder, to Hudbay Minerals (HBM) for $555 million and of his Lumina Copper to First Quantum Minerals (FM) for $470 million. His take from those two transactions alone was more than $165 million.

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).
