Top 10 Canadian Stocks To Invest In Right Now

The late Canadian-American actor Alan Thicke doled out measured advice as a psychiatrist dad in the sitcom Growing Pains. If only his heirs could use some handholding from “America’s Dad” now that they’re battling how to divvy up his estate.

It’s just half a year since Thicke died after a heart attack last December; he was playing hockey with his 19-year-old son Carter. Thicke’s two older sons, popstar Robin and Brennan, as co-executors of their dad’s living trust, have filed a petition in the Superior Court in Los Angeles, seeking instructions on the interplay between the 1988 trust (amended last year) and a 2005 prenup signed by their dad and his third wife, Tanya Callau. At issue is what’s separate property, what’s community property, and how it should be split among the three children and Callau.

Top 10 Canadian Stocks To Invest In Right Now: Valeant Pharmaceuticals International Inc(VRX)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    The stock market finally hit some resistance on Tuesday, giving up ground and breaking a long streak of consecutive advances for most major benchmarks. Market participants got spooked by a rise in interest rates, with 10-year Treasury yields once again climbing above the 3% mark and leading some to predict even steeper advances in the future. With budget deficits ballooning, higher interest expenses on the national debt could have a dramatic impact on the U.S. economy, especially if it lures investors away from high-flying stocks. Yet even amid the bond-driven downturn, some individual companies saw good news lift their shares. Valeant Pharmaceuticals International (NYSE:VRX), Hollysys Automation Technologies (NASDAQ:HOLI), and Ascena Retail Group (NASDAQ:ASNA) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.
