Hot Canadian Stock Tips

For the last few months, thanks to winning a prize from one of my favourite sites, I’ve received daily newsletters from the TSI Network.  For those that don’t know, the TSI Network is the online home of Pat McKeough’s highly successful family of investment publications:  The Successful Investor, Stock Pickers Digest, Wall Street Stock Forecaster and Canadian Wealth Advisor.  You can sign up for some or all of these publications about Canadian, U.S. and international stocks.

After reviewing my inbox filled with these publications for the some time now I’ve noticed a rather interesting (and predictable) investment trend when it comes to great buys for Canadian stocks.  Maybe you’ll agree with me…

First up though here are some of the Canadian stocks highlighted as great buys in Pat’s recent publications, in no particular order:

  • Toromont (TIH)
  • Enerflex (EFX)
  • Intact Financial (IFC)
  • Yamana Gold (YRI)
  • Great-West Lifeco (GWO)
  • Alimentation Couche-Tard (ATD.B)
  • Transcontinental Inc. (TCL.A)
  • RioCan REIT (REI.UN)
  • Teck Resources (TCK.B)
  • Bellatrix Exploration (BXE)
  • Encana (ECA)
  • Cenovus (CVE)
  • Canadian Utilities (CU)
  • ATCO Ltd. (ACO.X)

Although Pat’s reports are interesting and I’m thankful to receive the stock details in them, they can be distilled down to “tipping” many Canadian dividend paying stocks you’ll find by owning Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) like CDZ (that holds Canadian dividend aristocrats) or XIU (that holds the biggest 60, mostly blue-chip Canadian stocks).

The reality is there are only so many “hot” stocks in Canada.  Once your stocks are purchased, you can largely forget the market noise and simply focus on doing other things with your time.  Many of these companies will provide steady dividends and capital appreciation for the foreseeable future.

Do you agree with me?

  1. Hi MOA. I agree with you. I prefer to directly hold stocks than to buy ETFs. That being said, I personally prefer to manage my portfolio myself. For people less interested in stock selection and portfolio management, ETFs might be a good solution.

    As for newsletter subscriptions, I use to read some MPL publications (e.g. The MoneyLetter, Money Reporter, etc.). However, overtime, I felt that these newsletters were much too expensive for what I got from them.

    Still, I would gladly read them if I got them for free 😉

  2. Na, I can’t see them taking your subscription away. You just found that something you were getting isn’t something that might be needed to make decisions like you thought it might be. Like you I would rather just buy the stocks and hold them directly especially if they “provide steady dividends and capital appreciation” like you say they will. Just keep on learning from you mate! cheers

  3. I’m a subscriber of the TSI newsletter for about a year now (the latest issue is currently right beside my computer!) and I really like it.

    I like the format as it’s clear and concise, you don’t go for 4 pages long analysis to have Pat’s point of view on a stock. It’s definitely a good addition to my investment process!

    1. I do like the TSI newsletter yet with a portfolio that already includes CDN banks, telcos, lifecos and energy companies, I’m not sure the TSI newsletter is helping me there with those companies in particular. There are some good metrics that are reported, from other companies I don’t know very well, so reading that helps. Yet “tipping” the big blue-chips in Canada is rather boring investing – which is what I already do – don’t you think? 🙂

  4. It is very well information about of this page. All people always want to know all about things that you have been described. It is very valuable & very nice posting! I will bookmark this blog as I have , services for all. Thanks.
