Tony’s Take: Getting mutual funds out of the closet

The Canadian stock market is relatively small by international standards and is dominated by a few large corporations. Indeed, the top 10 companies by market capitalization in the TSX Composite Index reads like a who’s who of corporate Canada, including four of the big five banks, Canadian National Railway, Enbridge, Suncor Energy and BCE.

Tony’s Take – Counting our blessings

It’s hard not to feel a little depressed when you pick up the newspaper or switch on the TV news these days. There seems to no end to the trouble in the world. From the latest antics in Washington to tensions with China to the Brexit mess to riots in France to the lack of progress on climate change, the problems just seem to keep piling up.

Tony’s Take: Responsible investing is a great option

I was struck by two news items last week that said a lot about where we are as a society and where we need to go. The first was the annual consumer orgy known as Black Friday, the kick-off to the Christmas shopping season. Once again, there were scenes from the U.S. of stampeding shoppers, frenzied merchandise grabbing and even fist fights as people tried to get in on bargains.
