Top 10 Canadian Stocks To Own Right Now

Canada may be locked in a trade fight with the U.S., but the country’s exporters aren’t slowing down.

According to Markit’s survey of Canadian manufacturers, the index for new export orders hit 55.9 in May, the highest since 2011 and compared with a five-year average of just 51.4. The gauge has risen sharply since the start of the year, suggesting demand for Canadian goods is strengthening.

It’s a timely development, since another report Thursday showed the country’s typically staunch consumers are showing signs of fatigue. Exports may be the just the driver the economy needs to move forward.

But Friday’s data also adds to evidence Canada’s export manufacturers are reaching their limit. Unless the sector builds more capacity, it’s difficult to imagine how exports — which make up about a third of gross domestic product — can lead growth. In the manufacturing industry, capacity utilization rates, which show how close firms are to maximum output, are currently the highest since 2000.

    Investors today seem to think “long-term” means a quarter or, maybe, a year. But real long-term investors think decades into the future. If that sounds like you, then you want to own safe stocks that you can hold until 2030 — or longer. Three stocks that we think fit the bill today are 3M Company (NYSE:MMM), Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), and The Procter & Gamble Company (NYSE:PG). Here’s a quick rundown on why our contributors picked these stocks.

    3M Company’s (NYSE:MMM) rich valuation meant that any kind of growth mishap in 2018 was going to hurt the stock, and that’s just what happened after the company’s recent first-quarter earnings report.

    The system that could make you $104,000 richer in the next 12 months…

    Darden Restaurants Inc. (NYSE: DRI) leads a fairly busy day of earnings reports. The restaurant management giant easily topped Wall Street profit numbers by reporting earnings per share of $1.34. The average Wall Street estimate was $1.23. The firm also easily topped revenue expectations. DRI shares were up 4.5% this morning. The problems continue to mount for General Electric Co. (NYSE: GE). This morning, JPMorgan Securities slashed its price target for the U.S. conglomerate from $11 to $10 per share. The investment firm cited ongoing challenges to the company’s turbine business. General Electric has been under pressure since the financial crisis, and it was the worst performing stock on the Dow in 2017 before it was ultimately replaced on the index. Shares of Under Armour Inc. (NYSE: UAA) added 3.4% this morning, but the driver wasn’t necessarily positive for the global apparel giant. According to reports, the Baltimore-based sports apparel giant is cutting 3% of its international workforce. That equates to roughly 400 jobs. The company did raise its fiscal 2018 earnings forecast, and issued a revised update of severance costs. Look for earnings reports from Micron Technology Inc. (NASDAQ: MU), Thor Industries Inc. (NYSE: THO), United Natural Foods Inc. (NASDAQ: UNFI), Steelcase Inc. (NYSE: SCS), Scholastic Corp. (NASDAQ: SCHL), and Xcerra Corp. (NASDAQ: XCRA).

Top Canadian Stocks For 2019

This year has been a disappointing one for investors in Enbridge (NYSE:ENB) and Brookfield Infrastructure Partners (NYSE:BIP) as both stocks are down double-digits. Two different factors have weighed on their valuations. In Enbridge’s case, investors worried that the Canadian pipeline giant’s debt level had grown too high. Meanwhile, Brookfield Infrastructure has been under pressure due to concerns about growth in the near-term after a recent asset sale.

Those issues, however, should fade away after the companies teamed up on a deal where Enbridge will sell a business unit to Brookfield for 4.31 billion Canadian dollars ($3.3 billion) in cash. That’s because it should solve Enbridge’s balance sheet problems while also addressing concerns about Brookfield’s ability to grow. By correcting those issues, the deal makes it increasingly likely that the two companies can increase their high-yielding dividends at a healthy rate in the coming years.

Powering the company’s improvement was its retail segment, where adjusted EBITDA came in at $298 million, which was $94 million higher than the second quarter of last year. The company’s generation business also delivered stronger results as adjusted EBITDA rose $45 million to $197 million.

    Tuesday saw an up-and-down session on Wall Street, with major benchmarks trading on either side of the unchanged mark before finishing the day flat. Many investors kept most of their attention on Washington, where the White House announced that the U.S. would withdraw from the deal that the previous administration made with Iran concerning nuclear development. The withdrawal was largely expected, and although crude oil and other commodities were volatile leading up to the final decision, most other financial markets seemed prepared for the announcement. Even on a lackluster day, some companies had good news that lifted their shares substantially. Expeditors International of Washington (NASDAQ:EXPD), Valeant Pharmaceuticals International (NYSE:VRX), and SeaWorld Entertainment (NYSE:SEAS) were among the best performers on the day.

Top 10 Canadian Stocks To Buy For 2019

Mexico’s peso and Canada’s dollar are vulnerable to short-term weakness as talks drag on to salvage the North American Free Trade Agreement, with big swings only likely if a deal is reached quickly or the accord is scrapped altogether, according to Morgan Stanley.

Mexico’s currency could drop 10 percent if the deal is terminated, strategists including Michael Zezas wrote in a note Friday. On the other side of tail risks, if the pact is agreed to and signed this year, they would expect the peso to strengthen about 5 percent.

“FX is the main shock absorber for any change to the Nafta policy framework or to expectations,” the strategists said. Nonetheless, they wrote that while Mexican equities may gain just 2 percent from a deal, they could lose as much as 19 percent if Nafta is scrapped.

The U.S. on Thursday dashed hopes for a quick Nafta deal amid “gaping differences” on a number of topics, after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau York expressed optimism about reaching an agreement soon. If negotiators can’t reach at least a preliminary accord this month, any resolution may be a long way off. The U.S. doesn’t have much time to get a revised deal approved under the current Congress, with mid-term elections on Nov. 6.

    The burrito chain had a bulletproof brand back in 2015, with average unit volumes around $2.5 million and a market value of as much as $23 billion. It was a model for the restaurant industry after having essentially disrupted fast food and pioneered the fast casual model with its fresh-food, assembly-line format.

    Darden Restaurants Inc. (NYSE: DRI) leads a fairly busy day of earnings reports. The restaurant management giant easily topped Wall Street profit numbers by reporting earnings per share of $1.34. The average Wall Street estimate was $1.23. The firm also easily topped revenue expectations. DRI shares were up 4.5% this morning. The problems continue to mount for General Electric Co. (NYSE: GE). This morning, JPMorgan Securities slashed its price target for the U.S. conglomerate from $11 to $10 per share. The investment firm cited ongoing challenges to the company’s turbine business. General Electric has been under pressure since the financial crisis, and it was the worst performing stock on the Dow in 2017 before it was ultimately replaced on the index. Shares of Under Armour Inc. (NYSE: UAA) added 3.4% this morning, but the driver wasn’t necessarily positive for the global apparel giant. According to reports, the Baltimore-based sports apparel giant is cutting 3% of its international workforce. That equates to roughly 400 jobs. The company did raise its fiscal 2018 earnings forecast, and issued a revised update of severance costs. Look for earnings reports from Micron Technology Inc. (NASDAQ: MU), Thor Industries Inc. (NYSE: THO), United Natural Foods Inc. (NASDAQ: UNFI), Steelcase Inc. (NYSE: SCS), Scholastic Corp. (NASDAQ: SCHL), and Xcerra Corp. (NASDAQ: XCRA).

What happened

What a wild ride it’s been for Tilray (NASDAQ:TLRY). After jumping as much as 14% in early trading, shares of the Canadian marijuana grower were down 22.5% as of 12:05 p.m. EDT on Thursday. Tilray didn’t make any announcements, so what led to the big drop? It’s quite possible that we’re either seeing investors take profits off the table or maybe the winding down of a short squeeze.

So what

It would make sense that some investors could be selling Tilray to lock in profits. Before today, the stock had racked up a gain of 540% in just the last month. Tilray enjoyed a big jump this week after its CEO appeared on CNBC talking about how there could be “multiple hundred-billion-dollar companies” in the cannabis industry in the future.
