I don't like bricks and mortar retailers, particularly of the box variety. They are also too late to online and will not do well there vs. Amazon.
I am assuming Wal-mart is the exception? They are #2 in US online sales and extremely competitive if not the leader in some areas overseas

I don't like Walmart either. I haven't researched Walmart in a while but from what I recall their online sales are declining on a percentage basis. Walmart will always rank highly on revenue due to sheer size and brand recognition. Growth is what you need to drive the share price.

Why not just buy Amazon?

I have DG, DLTR and TGT. Latter is a value play... I would consider WMT at 60 too. AMZN is to rich, great momo play, though.
It's easy to grin when your ship comes in and you've got the stock market beat.
But the man worthwhile is the man who can smile when his shorts are too tight in the seat 😃

huuuge move in Bonds.
shorting ZB and UB futures, small initial positions. I think they go higher to squeeze all shorts. As Gundlach said, expecting 2.2 on 10Y notes.

oh, yes. Taking profits in ES @2380..2384..2385. Shorting TF @1380. Have YM on offer at 20935

If you hold JNUG for the long run...you are in for some pain.

Willy could do some reading on the prospectus for any leveraged product...

Indeed.

As a matter of fact...my post should say that holding JNUG at all could bring you some pain, but holding it for the long run will make it a certainty.

Anybody follows/holds/plans to buy CGI Group Inc. (GIB.A-T)? Out a few technology stocks I'm watching, it seems the most attractive now - yet has been a laggard over a year. Wonder if it'll have some catalyst to catch up?

I'm not an expert but do you think it's a little overpriced because their P/E is 17.79?
But I like how they have businesses around the globe.

Other tech companies' PE is even higher (except for Open Text which I don't like for other reasons) Now that we have a non-reg account, I'm debating between selling some of the stocks which we currently own in registered accounts and replacing them with HXT in it - or keep buying individual stocks (preferably low/non-dividend payers)

When I analyzed what we already have against the index (my husband has ZCN in his TFSA), I realized it's not that bad - and somewhat similar to Rob Carrick's Two-Minute Portfolio. Not intentionally, but now that we're "almost there", maybe it makes more sense to buy stocks from the 2 sectors that we're missing, keep Financials and Energy underweight - and call it a day? :)

(I sold all remaining US individual stocks except for AT&T earlier this year, and will be indexing US and International Equities for sure. It's only Canadian Equities that make me doubt.. :))

Lets give a round of applause to BCE. They closed the deal with MTS.

It is, especially for mining.

Just be careful with pumpers. Lots of helpful people but some do have vested interest because they got in so much earlier than the rest.
