Best Canadian Stocks To Invest In 2021

Shares of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) added 65 cents last week (about 0.5%), closing at $140.64 on Friday. The stock posted a new 52-week high on Tuesday.

Apple launched a number of new products Tuesday morning and that sent the stock to its new annual high. By the end of the day, however, the shares closed down more than $2.00.

The product announcements included the introduction of a new, lower-priced 9.7-inch iPad that may be telegraphing the eventual demise of the iPad mini. Apple also introduced a new version of its entry-level iPhone SE. The new SE, with 32GB of memory and an A9 processor, will sell for $399. With 128GB of memory the SE will cost $499. That’s about half the expected price of the new iPhone 8 expected to be introduced in the fall.

Apple also announced the acquisition of a productivity app for iOS and Android called Workflow. The app allows users easily to create complex macro commands to help automate routine chores. The price was not disclosed and the app, which had previously cost $1.99, appeared in the App Store as a free download.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    U.S. oil giant ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP)used $50 oil as a rough baseline for its 2019 capital plans as well. ConocoPhillips currently expects to invest $6.1 billion on capital projects this year — enough money to grow production per share by 8% — which it can fund on the cash flows produced at $40 oil. Add in a dividend that the company increased twice last year to a $3 billion repurchase program and ConocoPhillips is on track to return 50% of the cash it produces at $50 oil to investors this year, though some of that money will come from its cash-rich balance sheet. However, with oil in the mid-$50s, ConocoPhillips is on track to produce more cash than expected this year, which could lead it to buy back even more stock than planned as it works to whittle down a cash balance that stood at $6.4 billion at the end of 2018.

Top 10 Safest Stocks To Own Right Now

Gold doesn't trade in a vacuum.   Markets are connected. What happens in one often affects others.   So if you want to understand what's happening with gold, you need to know what's going on in the markets that affect gold.   And while lots of traders focus only on the short term, it's important to have a big-picture view, too. The big picture shows you the long-term trends at work… and when they change. It can help you find low-risk opportunities to open new positions. And it can help you determine where to set your stops.   Today, we'll look at the big picture for two markets that affect gold… along with gold itself.   Let's get started…   The first market we'll look at is U.S. government bonds… specifically, the yield on 10-year U.S. Treasurys. The U.S. government is considered the world's safest borrower. (It can print money to pay lenders back, after all.) The rate it pays to borrow money for 10 years serves as the world's benchmark interest rate.

    Companies that get a bad reputation from consumers often do so because they don’t have to make their experience better to keep customers.

    Thor Industries’ (NYSE:THO) fiscal 2018 third-quarter earnings, released on June 6, helped stem some of the company’s recent share price decline: After surging nearly 51% in 2017, Thor’s shares have lost one-third of their value year to date. As my colleague Dan Caplinger recently pointed out, the recreational vehicle, or RV, market remains strong, but investors are concerned about Thor’s near-term prospects, given that it’s coming off a period of phenomenal revenue growth. Below, I’ll analyze five points made in Thor’s earnings release and most recent quarterly “questions and answers” document, which provide context around its current earnings and outlook.

    Another metric that bodes well for Winnebago is its total backlog; this increased by a healthy 36% compared to the prior year, to $193.1 million.

    Markets are cheering a major development in efforts to fix the ongoing trade conflict between the United States and China. According to Reuters, Chinese telecom giant ZTE has signed an agreement to get back into business with its American partners. The agreement will lift a ban by the U.S. Commerce Department that prevented China’s No. 2 telecommunications equipment from buying from U.S. suppliers. This is a major development, and one that signals progress among trade officials from both nations. There are now more job openings in the United States than available workers. This is the first time that the Department of Labor has documented this phenomenon. There are 6.7 million openings compared to the 6.4 million workers available to fill those positions. As a result, U.S. companies have been forced to increase compensation in order to attract talent. All of the positive economic development could come to a screeching halt should the U.S. experience the largest labor strike in a decade. Reports indicate that the Teamsters and the United Parcel Service (NYSE: UPS) are on a collision course that could result in a general strike. The union has announced that 260,000 UPS employees have authorized a strike should both sides fail to reach a labor deal by August 1. UPS is responsible for the transport of 6% of the nation’s gross domestic product.

    Monday was a positive day on Wall Street, as major benchmarks jumped following an uneventful weekend, tapering their gains as the session came to a close. Some had feared that China might retaliate once again after the U.S. issued a second round of tariffs against the nation with the world’s second-largest economy, but the expected fireworks didn’t come, putting market participants more at ease. The beginning of earnings season in the next week will also distract investors from geopolitical issues, perhaps allowing indexes to climb further. Yet some individual stocks had difficulties that sent their shares lower. Yandex (NASDAQ:YNDX), Menlo Therapeutics (NASDAQ:MNLO), and MGIC Investment (NYSE:MTG) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

    Markets are cheering a major development in efforts to fix the ongoing trade conflict between the United States and China. According to Reuters, Chinese telecom giant ZTE has signed an agreement to get back into business with its American partners. The agreement will lift a ban by the U.S. Commerce Department that prevented China’s No. 2 telecommunications equipment from buying from U.S. suppliers. This is a major development, and one that signals progress among trade officials from both nations. There are now more job openings in the United States than available workers. This is the first time that the Department of Labor has documented this phenomenon. There are 6.7 million openings compared to the 6.4 million workers available to fill those positions. As a result, U.S. companies have been forced to increase compensation in order to attract talent. All of the positive economic development could come to a screeching halt should the U.S. experience the largest labor strike in a decade. Reports indicate that the Teamsters and the United Parcel Service (NYSE: UPS) are on a collision course that could result in a general strike. The union has announced that 260,000 UPS employees have authorized a strike should both sides fail to reach a labor deal by August 1. UPS is responsible for the transport of 6% of the nation’s gross domestic product.

Best Canadian Stocks To Invest In Right Now

There may be a technical reason for the magnitude of the rally in Canadian pot producer Tilray, which has captured the attention of traders everywhere: It’s too expensive to bet against the stock.

“There is not much stock left to borrow in this name,” said Ihor Dusaniwsky, managing director of predictive analytics at S3 Partners, in an email. He noted that fees for borrowing Tilray stock were ranging between 500 and 700 percent on Thursday, making it an incredibly expensive stock to short.

(Short selling is the practice of borrowing shares of stock for a fee, then selling the shares in the hope of buying them back later at a lower price.)

Tilray shares started to rip higher about a month ago. Short interest on the stock also spiked to about 3.5 million shares — approximately a third of the company’s overall float — from roughly 2.5 million shares in that time, S3 Partners data show. That means more and more investors were betting against the name.

Top 10 Canadian Stocks To Watch Right Now

The sands of the hourglass are beginning to thin out. After years of promises from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and months of debate in Parliament, recreational marijuana will become legal and go on sale in Canada in just 44 days.

What will legalization look like in Canada? Though it’s really anyone’s guess at this point, it’ll likely add billions of dollars in annual revenue, atop what the industry is already generating from domestic medical patients and via exports. In many ways, this legalization is being viewed as the next-greatest thing since sliced bread — and investors are hoping to take advantage of it.

    We asked three Motley Fool investors to profile some of the best under-the-radar growth stocks on the market today. Read on to see why they selected Encana (NYSE:ECA), Activision Blizzard (NASDAQ:ATVI), and Baozun (NASDAQ:BZUN) as top growth stocks for in-the-know investors.

  • [By Jon C. Ogg]

    Encana Corp. (NYSE: ECA) has seen its shares rise 19% so far in 2019, outperforming its peers by about 500 basis points. That said, Encana shares have underperformed peers by over 20% since the NFX deal announcement last November. Merrill Lynch has a Buy rating and $11 price objective on Encana, almost 60% higher than the prior $6.89 close. The firm noted that Encana’s cube style completions have been an important driver of outperformance in the Permian. In the STACK, the firm expects Encana to be deliberate initially using “skinny cubes” to determine optimal vertical/horizontal spacing while targeting select zones using multi-well pads.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Canada’s Montney Shale doesn’t currently capture investors’ attention like the Permian Basin. However, that doesn’t mean it’s a second-tier play. Quite the contrary since, like the Permian, it’s a resource-rich region with as many as six drillable formations that produce highly economic liquids-rich natural gas. Because of those features, it has become an important growth driver for companies like Encana (NYSE:ECA).

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Today, however, many drillers are setting a high bar for new wells. EOG Resources (NYSE:EOG) has been one of the leaders in disrupting the former way of thinking by establishing a high return hurdle rate for new wells of 30% after-tax at $40 oil. Others followed with similar return-focused approaches, including Encana (NYSE:ECA), which needs locations to achieve a 35% after-tax return at $50 oil to meet its premium hurdle rate. 

  • [By Ethan Ryder]

    Encana (NYSE:ECA) (TSE:ECA) had its target price raised by Morgan Stanley from $16.00 to $20.00 in a research report report published on Wednesday morning. Morgan Stanley currently has a buy rating on the oil and gas company’s stock.
