Couch Potato Investing article from Money Sense and sponsored by BMO. This is all about index-based Mutual Funds and ETFs (Exchange Traded Funds). ETFs and just index-based mutual funds sold as stocks. However, I you are interested in this sort of investing, this is an article on this subject.
Personally, I prefer to buy good stocks and hold them for the long term. I especially like companies that buy dividends and increase their dividends over time. We do have a lot of good Canadian companies to hold for the long term in Financials, Consumer, Utility, Tech, and Industrials sectors. I personally do not go in much for any resources (that is Oil and Gas and Mining) as they are too cyclical.
