Review"This book is like Mal - who is a rider, a rocker and a rebel. He doesn't just think outside the box - he drags it behind his Harley on a cross-continent adventure and then runs over it a few times for good measure. The Bay and Wall Street guys are gonna hate it - Main Streeters should embrace it. One ton of fun!" BJ Del Conte Chase Producer, BNN - Business News Network Business Producer/Anchor - CP24

The Day After – Catalyst for resumption of Bull Market will be a surprise!
I provided a rather winded explanation in my previous discussion about why the current correction was inevitable. Since then, the S&P 500 has declined roughly 3%. It is likely to get worse before it gets better? My own estimation was … Continue reading

Correction done? Don’t bet on it!
On March 20th, I published the following quote in my regular money.ca blog entitled: Reacting to headlines is perilous! Most worrisome: Jim Cramer (wait long enough and you’ll eventually be right) is more wound up than a four-year old high … Continue reading

Finally RIM is getting some respect. Today ScotiaCapital upgraded the stock to a sector outperform rating: “In our view RIM does not need to deliver the best selling smartphone in order to deliver an upside EPS surprise. And we believe … Continue reading

Stocks & Bonds…the next 100 years.
Trying to determine investment strategy hinges on a seemingly impossible exercize. Namely, predicting what the world will be like. The most important metrics are interest rates and real rates of return for the more critical asset class alternatives. Despite our … Continue reading

Caution in Fast & Furious Markets? NOT!
Being overly cautious because of newspaper headlines is a costly business, as I discuss at length in my very entertaining book and in several past commentaries. The following is a recent quote from the Financial Post in Canada but there … Continue reading
