Both are poised to rally if deflation hits and the stock market falls. But EDV is cheaper, at only 0.07% expense ratio, compared with ZROZ’s 0.15%, and so it’s the one that makes the cut.

Best Canadian Stocks To Own For 2019

Wall Street enjoyed a positive session on Monday, with highlights including strong gains for most major benchmarks. Investors found it easier to be optimistic about the prospects for continued economic growth than to be pessimistic about the potential negative outcomes of recent trade disputes between the U.S. and key allies. Even so, some companies had to deal with bad news that hurt them disproportionately and sent their shares lower. Canadian Solar (NASDAQ:CSIQ), Nektar Therapeutics (NASDAQ:NKTR), and Gulfport Energy (NASDAQ:GPOR) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Canadian Solar deals with trade clouds

Shares of Canadian Solar dropped 14% after the Chinese government made changes to the way it subsidizes solar projects. China decided to stop providing subsidies on new regular solar projects this year, and even among those that are already in the process of getting built, the government will cut its incentives by 0.05 Chinese yuan per kilowatt-hour. Although there are some exceptions to the rules, most Chinese solar stocks fell on the news, and despite its name, Canadian Solar has ample enough exposure to China to feel many of the same pressures as its industry peers. With China having been a major part of expansion in the solar industry in recent years, any slowdown will have dramatic impacts across the spectrum.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    The stock market had a tumultuous session on Wednesday, as major benchmarks started the day weak but bounced back in the afternoon. Investors weren’t happy with the current state of geopolitical uncertainty, with trade disputes threatening to become larger problems than ever. But the release of the minutes of the latest meeting of the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy committee convinced many that the central bank will be slow to do lasting damage to the economic expansion, remaining measured in the pace of its interest rate increases. Moreover, some companies had good news that sent their shares higher. Tiffany (NYSE:TIF), BP Prudhoe Bay Royalty Trust (NYSE:BPT), and Ralph Lauren (NYSE:RL) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

  • [By Daniel Miller]

Top 10 Canadian Stocks To Own For 2019

As gasoline prices move toward $3 for a gallon of regular nationwide and experts worry about a spike in oil prices, late this month is the 10th anniversary of $4 gas. The price at the pump broke above the magic number at the end of May and peaked at $4.11 in June. Can gas prices get that high again? If oil jumps above $100 a barrel, it is possible. And in some parts of the United States, particularly sections of California, it already has exceeded that level this month.

Oil at $100 seemed impossible a year ago. Crude was $44. Oil was plentiful, particularly because of a new boom in Canadian and U.S. shale production. No major geopolitical troubles blocked the flow of crude from major oil-producing nations.

The geopolitical pendulum has swung against tranquility throughout parts of the oil-producing world. Tensions that have caused the United States to withdraw from a treaty to control Iran’s nuclear enrichment efforts in exchange for a drop in sanctions will damage Iran’s exports. The deal, which involved other nations and is called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, allowed Iran to export crude.

    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.
