I just noticed that UBS put out their "Macro Trades for 2018." I've attached it. I'll update this thread or you can post your dealers summary ideas and we can see how it all pans out towards the end of Nov and Dec of 2018. If possible, please put the ideas in text so everyone can use the "Search thi...

tfsa

I've been doing some research into how to really take advantage of the TFSA and came across a few points that I wanted insight on. If you have a trading account registered under a TFSA, and you make gains - can you sell and then rebuy more shares without affecting your contribution room? Also - I un...

Hello All, I need some help as I am not very investment savvy. I am in my late 30's. My annual work income is around $105000. I do not own any property as of yet and rent an apartment with my wife. We have no children yet. My wife makes very little approx $13000 for 2017 and will be going back to sc...

A nice stock, but I think Netflix's days are numbered. Disney is becoming a behemoth, and would most probably start a rival streaming service (that isn't useless like Hulu). I just don't see much growth for NFLX. Thoughts?

Some stocks that I've been watching are hitting predictable floor and ceiling levels. What are the tax implications if I buy (hold for few days) then sell, rinse and repeat a stock? Any difference between US-listed or TSX listed stock?

what

From Investopedia - "Approximately 10% is the average return for the S&P 500 since its inception back in 1928. Adjusted for inflation the "real return" is more like 7%. Also worth noting that nearly half of the gains from the S&P 500 resulted from dividends. " I'm just wondering why did the site mak...

etf

ETFs try and follow their underlying index but I know fees can cause a drag on return so that the performance of an ETF does not completely follow the index. That being said, according to MorningStar, VAB has a 5 year return of 2.83% and the Canadian Fixed Income (NAV) is at 2.36% - see http://quote...

tax

Anybody have any idea how the new Tax Bill will affect investing in the US? It sounds like it is great for companies since they wouldn't need to pay as much taxes, but the middle income family is probably not going to do so well (and thus less purchasing power to buy things from the companies?) Woul...
