November has come and it’s already time for a new release of Stockchase Premium Best Stock Ideas. This month’s best ideas feature retail stocks.
November means two things…
🍂 Forests full of gorgeous falling leaves
🧾 Tax-loss selling
While feasting on nature’s beauty is delightful, selling your losing stocks against the profits of good stocks is a painful, but necessary ritual. Likely candidates for selling this year start with battered Canadian oil stocks which foreign investors have fled and domestic ones have ignored or are waiting till a pipeline gets built.
As investors sell off, markets drift down.
This November may be different
The Dow and S&P just made new all-time highs, while the TSX is not that far off. The indices are lifted by hopes that the U.S. and China will sign phase one of their long-anticipated trade agreement while investors are fueled by the third cut in U.S. interest rates this year, announced on October 30.
There have been false alarms about a trade agreement before, so we’ll see how this phase one plays out between the two super-powers. Regardless, rates around the world will remain flat or falling. Low rates limit bond returns and further fuel stock-buying.
In Canada, it may too early to suss out Prime Minster Trudeau’s energy policy (i.e. build another pipeline), but at least the U.K. is calm for now as it extends its Brexit deadline (again) to January 31, 2020.
