Best Canadian Stocks For 2019

Money-market traders in the U.K. may have capitulated, but not the analysts.

While currency pundits were jolted by Governor Mark Carney’s surprise hint that an interest-rate increase by the Bank of England next month isn’t a foregone conclusion, they aren’t exactly doing an about-turn on their forecasts. ING Groep NV, Nomura International Plc, Credit Agricole SA, CBA Europe Ltd., MUFG and Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce all say they are keeping their call for a hike in May intact.


Gilts slid on Monday after rallying Friday on the repricing as money-market investors pared expectations for a rate move to around 50 percent following Carney’s remarks, from more than 80 percent earlier. Sterling is still among the top performers in Group-of-10 currencies this year, largely led by conviction that the central bank will need to raise rates to quell inflation that breached 3 percent in November.

Best Canadian Stocks For 2019: Plains All American Pipeline L.P.(PAA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    The market has pummeled master limited partnerships (MLPs) over the past few years due to the impact the oil market downturn had on their operations and business model. Among the hardest-hit have been oil pipeline MLP Plains All American Pipeline (NYSE:PAA) and gas pipeline giant Energy Transfer Partners (NYSE:ETP), both of which have lost more than half their value over the last three years. That persistent slump comes even though their turnaround strategies are beginning to gain steam. While these companies still have some work to do before they’re back on solid ground, both could deliver significant returns as they complete their plans and the oil market continues rebounding over the next few years. That upside potential makes them compelling options for investors with a higher tolerance for risk.
