Top 5 Canadian Stocks To Own Right Now

Please note that due to the higher liquidity of Tio Networks on the TSX exchange via the ticker TNC.V, all amounts in this article are in Canadian dollars. This is consistent with its reporting currency.

In the course of my investing career, I have learned it is worthwhile to go back and revisit the thesis on an investment to ensure it remains valid, whether or not its share value is up or down. Early on, I did this only for companies where the share price had gone down as I wanted to find out where I had gone wrong. I have always struggled with when to sell my winners, even though I do use a trailing stop methodology in most cases to take this decision out of my hands. Small and micro-cap companies can have wild swings, which sometimes are not supported by the trailing stop methodology.

When I first profiled Tio Networks Corp. (OTC:TNCGF) in July of 2015, its shares were trading at $1.12 CAD; today shares sit at $2.88, a gain of 157.1%. In a subsequent follow-up article in January of 2016 after shares had run up to $2.20, I argued that Tio continued to be a discounted growth stock. A year later, it is time to review the Tio Networks story as to whether it still remains a good value.

  • [By Garrett Baldwin]

    Markets are cheering a major development in efforts to fix the ongoing trade conflict between the United States and China. According to Reuters, Chinese telecom giant ZTE has signed an agreement to get back into business with its American partners. The agreement will lift a ban by the U.S. Commerce Department that prevented China’s No. 2 telecommunications equipment from buying from U.S. suppliers. This is a major development, and one that signals progress among trade officials from both nations. There are now more job openings in the United States than available workers. This is the first time that the Department of Labor has documented this phenomenon. There are 6.7 million openings compared to the 6.4 million workers available to fill those positions. As a result, U.S. companies have been forced to increase compensation in order to attract talent. All of the positive economic development could come to a screeching halt should the U.S. experience the largest labor strike in a decade. Reports indicate that the Teamsters and the United Parcel Service (NYSE: UPS) are on a collision course that could result in a general strike. The union has announced that 260,000 UPS employees have authorized a strike should both sides fail to reach a labor deal by August 1. UPS is responsible for the transport of 6% of the nation’s gross domestic product.

    Thor Industries’ (NYSE:THO)fiscal 2018 third-quarter earnings, released on June 6, helped stem some of the company’s recent share price decline: After surging nearly 51% in 2017, Thor’s shares have lost one-third of their value year to date. As my colleague Dan Caplinger recently pointed out, the recreational vehicle, or RV, market remains strong, but investors are concerned about Thor’s near-term prospects, given that it’s coming off a period of phenomenal revenue growth. Below, I’ll analyze five points made in Thor’s earnings release and most recent quarterly “questions and answers” document, which provide context around its current earnings and outlook.

    FAANG stocks are attempting to rebound today after a brutal sell-off hit the Nasdaq components Tuesday. The social media giant Facebook Inc. (Nasdaq: FB) will report earnings after the bell, but it’s likely that analysts are more interested in the company’s ongoing response to a data scandal that rocked investor sentiment and spurred privacy fears during the first quarter. Wall Street forecasts EPS of $1.36 on top of $11.45 billion in revenue.
    Right now, the 10-year interest rate is sitting on the border of 3%. And this news has many investors jittery about the impact on the stock market and the broader economy. Of course, many people forget that interest rates remain historically low for this stage of an economic expansion. And inflation targets remain stubbornly elusive for members of the U.S. Federal Reserve. The truth is that investors have little to worry about regarding interest rates. Instead, they should listen to Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald, who offered his insight to Fox Business Network earlier this week. Here’s what Keith had to say.

The move comes after a calamitous year for GE, which saw the company become the worst-performing Dow component of 2017.

Hot Canadian Stocks To Buy For 2019

MedMen, a Los Angeles-based chain of marijuana dispensaries, can’t trade on Wall Street because cannabis is illegal in its home country.

So it listed in Canada.

MedMen started trading this week on the Canadian Securities Exchange, or CSE.

They’re not alone. US cannabis companies are heading north to list on stock exchanges in Canada, where there’s no federal ban on marijuana sales. Medical marijuana is legal there, and the country is in the process of legalizing recreational marijuana, too.

It’s a two-way street. Some Canadian cannabis companies have come south to list on Wall Street exchanges, because they’re not subject to the same restrictions that keep US pot growers away.

In the US, medical marijuana is legal in 30 states, and recreational is legal in 10. But US cannabis companies can’t list on US stock exchanges or even get basic financial services, because marijuana is prohibited by the federal government.

“There are no straight roads and there are no clear paths,” said MedMen CEO Adam Bierman.

Best Canadian Stocks To Own For 2019: Thor Industries Inc.(THO)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Asit Sharma]

    Winnebago’s total backlog increased by 36% against the comparable prior year quarter, to $193.1 million. Competitor Thor Industries’ (NYSE:THO) quarterly earnings, reported earlier this month, revealed a backlog reduction of 18%. Although Thor’s management presented a credible argumentthat the organization’s backlog reduction is due to increased production capability, its shareholders nonetheless have worried over demand trends. Winnebago’s own backlog growth provides a more positive data point for those taking stock of the larger RV industry.

  • [By ]

    Thor Industries (THO) : “They had expenses and inventory go up and it’s been hurt by both. Those are negatives.”

    Hain Celestial Group (HAIN) : “They had a bad quarter with bad guidance. I can’t reassure you here. “

  • [By Asit Sharma]

    Thor Industries’ (NYSE:THO)fiscal 2018 third-quarter earnings, released on June 6, helped stem some of the company’s recent share price decline: After surging nearly 51% in 2017, Thor’s shares have lost one-third of their value year to date. As my colleague Dan Caplinger recently pointed out, the recreational vehicle, or RV, market remains strong, but investors are concerned about Thor’s near-term prospects, given that it’s coming off a period of phenomenal revenue growth. Below, I’ll analyze five points made in Thor’s earnings release and most recent quarterly “questions and answers” document, which provide context around its current earnings and outlook.

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Many people think of recreational vehicles as part of an iconic American pastime associated with the love of the open road. For Thor Industries (NYSE:THO), the RV manufacturer’s corporate home in Elkhart, Indiana, might seem about as far removed from international trade tensions as you could image. Yet even though the RV market has been extremely strong lately, Thor believes that what’s been going on between Washington and foreign trade partners could create headwinds that will eventually make their way to this company in America’s heartland.

    Markets are cheering a major development in efforts to fix the ongoing trade conflict between the United States and China. According to Reuters, Chinese telecom giant ZTE has signed an agreement to get back into business with its American partners. The agreement will lift a ban by the U.S. Commerce Department that prevented China’s No. 2 telecommunications equipment from buying from U.S. suppliers. This is a major development, and one that signals progress among trade officials from both nations. There are now more job openings in the United States than available workers. This is the first time that the Department of Labor has documented this phenomenon. There are 6.7 million openings compared to the 6.4 million workers available to fill those positions. As a result, U.S. companies have been forced to increase compensation in order to attract talent. All of the positive economic development could come to a screeching halt should the U.S. experience the largest labor strike in a decade. Reports indicate that the Teamsters and the United Parcel Service (NYSE: UPS) are on a collision course that could result in a general strike. The union has announced that 260,000 UPS employees have authorized a strike should both sides fail to reach a labor deal by August 1. UPS is responsible for the transport of 6% of the nation’s gross domestic product.
