There is a recent article by Peter Hodson on the Financial Post talking about why the TSX is underperforming currently. Too much resources and financial stocks and little tech are the main reasons.
Personally, I have lots of financials and little in resources. I have almost 30% in Financials, but less than 1% in resources. This is probably the reason I tend to outperform the TSX. I also am heavily invested in Dividend Growth Stocks and they also tend to outperform other stocks.
On my other blog I wrote yesterday about Dorel Industries Inc. (TSX-DII.B, OTC-DIIBF) ... learn more. Next, I will write about Pulse Seismic Inc. (TSX-PSD, OTC- PLSDF) ... learn more on Friday, July 27, 2018 around 5 pm.
