Raymond James

The right advice starts with a trusted relationship.

We believe financial advice is about more than just having a plan. It’s about having the right plan for you. And that only happens with a true understanding of your whole life, beyond just your finances. Because as your needs become more complex, sophisticated advice and a relationship built for the long term become even more important.

What Trade War?

If there is a silver lining in the ongoing trade dispute between Canada and the US, it’s that it underlines the fact Canada needs to diversify its export market. Not that this is a new revelation, but the escalating tensions with our largest trading partner reminds us that that relying on one nation is not a winning strategy and that diversification is key.

Where is the strength?

Relative strength (or price relative) indicators compare the performance of one security to that of another, say a sector to an index or a stock to its respective sector, in order to provide more context to that performance. The relative strength is calculated by dividing the price of the security of interest by that of the comparative security (benchmark index or sector).

Focusing on the Positives

The S&P/TSX hit a fresh new high during the second quarter despite growing concerns of a widening global trade war between the US and the rest of the world. For a short while, Canadian equities were able to look past the heightened trade rhetoric and tit-for-tat escalation, and focus on the strength within the commodity complex during the months of April and May, and the pockets of strength showing in the Canadian economy.

Road Trip

Goldman Sachs studied other countries where growth cycles have lasted more than 10 years (Australia from 1992 to the present; the U.K., 1992-2008; Canada, 1992-2008; and Japan, 1975-1992). It found similar advantageous factors exist in the U.S.: a relatively flat Phillips curve (the relationship between inflation and unemployment), strengthened financial regulation and a lack of financial imbalances. In the past three U.S. expansions, the late-cycle phase lasted 2-4 years, indicating the next recession could be as far out as 2021.
