  • October is Breast Cancer month to create awareness for this dreaded disease. This is what we will be talking about this afternoon on Smooth 98.1FM.

Look at this scenario: “Things seemed to be going well for Kemi and her family. Their first child had just started university, her husband Jide’s business was picking up, she had a good job and they had just moved into their own home; it was a good year. 
___
But in April, Kemi noticed a small lump on her left breast, which definitely wasn’t there when she had checked the month before. Her doctor referred her to Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) and it was confirmed she had grade three aggressive breast cancer. She had surgery in May to remove the lump and she is now having a course of chemotherapy. She will require a second operation, then radiotherapy. Beyond this she will require treatment for at least five years.”

Most people overlook the financial implications of a serious illness. What would happen if you were suddenly diagnosed with a critical illness? 
Can you cope financially? 
Do you have insurance?

  • Stocks declined for the third straight week while bonds rose, helping smooth out volatility for balanced portfolios. Cyclical sectors led the way on the downside as a string of disappointing U.S. economic data fueled worries that a slowdown in manufacturing will spread to other parts of the U.S. economy. The Purchasing Managers' Index showed that manufacturing activity contracted in September for the second month in a row. The services index also declined but remained in expansion territory. Topping off the data was September's jobs report, which provided some assurance that despite a slowdown in hiring, the labor market remains tight, a positive for consumers and the economy. We believe the mix of slowing economic data and geopolitical risks is likely to result in higher volatility, but fundamentals appear strong enough to remain constructive.

  • Canadian stocks advanced to a new record high, helped by rising oil prices, while U.S. stocks finished lower last week. The main events that captured investors' attention were the spike in oil prices and the Federal Reserve's decision to cut rates for the second time this year. An attack on key oil infrastructure in Saudi Arabia resulted in the worst oil supply disruption in history, as 6% of the world's production was impacted. Oil prices initially jumped 15% but gave back some early gains, finishing the week 7% higher as officials communicated that production will be largely back to normal by the end of the month, sooner than some had feared. On the monetary front, the Federal Reserve lowered its federal funds rate by a quarter point to insure against risks from slower global growth and trade uncertainties. We believe that an accommodative Fed can help extend the U.S. and global expansion, but aggressive market expectations for the Fed to continue cutting rates could prompt short-term volatility.

  • Weekly Market Wrap. 
Improving economic data, supportive global central-bank policies, and optimism around trade all led Canadian stocks to advance to a new record high and U.S. stocks to rise for the third straight week. China announced that it would exempt some U.S. products from tariffs, and the U.S. responded with delaying the increase in some of the tariffs scheduled to take effect next month. These goodwill gestures from both sides sparked optimism that an interim trade agreement can be achieved. Notable market moves last week include a sizable rise in Treasury yields and the outperformance of cyclical sectors (financials, consumer discretionary, energy) over defensives (utilities, health care, staples). Another shift was the preference for stocks with depressed valuations over stocks that traditionally trade at higher price-to-earnings ratios, which have outperformed this year. While the timing of swings in the market's complexion and leadership rotation are hard to predict, well-diversified portfolios can provide exposure to future asset-class leaders and potentially smooth out the ride for investors.

  • Weekly Market Wrap. Stocks finished higher for a second week in row, with the TSX and the S&P 500 sitting within striking distance from record highs. News that the U.S. and China agreed to hold trade talks in Washington in October was the main catalyst for the rally. 
August's jobs report in Canada showed that hiring remains robust with solid wage growth, a positive for the economy and consumer spending (the largest contributor to GDP). Despite global uncertainties, the labor market has been resilient, which, along with on-target inflation, is reinforcing the Bank of Canada's view to extend the pause in rates. 
Economic data was mixed in the U.S. as the manufacturing activity contracted, falling to a three-year low, while non-manufacturing activity (which accounts for the bulk of economic activity) expanded and accelerated versus the pace of activity in July. 
A healthy consumer, positive economic growth, and low interest rates provide a good environment for stocks, in our view.#bonds #stocks #investing #investment #resp #rdsp #tfsa #rrsp #tariffs #yield #fixedincome #retirement #education #taxes #kingtownship #kingcity #schomberg #nobleton #insurance #disabilityinsurance #longtermcare #criticalinsurance #lifeinsurance

  • Weekly Market Update. Canadian and U.S. stocks climbed higher last week, finishing the volatile month of August on a high note. Behind the rally was optimism that further escalation in the trade spat between the U.S. and China will be avoided based on vague conciliatory comments from both sides. Economic data also helped after Canada's economy recorded a stronger-than-expected rebound in the second quarter and after U.S. consumer spending, rose by 4.7%, the strongest gain in four years. In another twist on the Brexit saga, odds of the U.K. leaving the European Union without an agreement increased last week after the prime minister announced he would be suspending Parliament before the October 31 Brexit deadline. Despite all the geopolitical uncertainties, it's the solid consumer fundamentals, still-rising corporate profits, and accommodative monetary policy that can help extend the economic expansion, in our view. #bonds #stocks #investing #investment #resp #rdsp #tfsa #rrsp #tariffs #yield #fixedincome #retirement #education #taxes #kingtownship #kingcity #schomberg #nobleton #insurance #disabilityinsurance #longtermcare #criticalinsurance #lifeinsurance

  • Weekly Market Update. Canadian and U.S. stocks were on track to finish higher for the week until China unveiled a new round of retaliatory tariffs and President Trump vowed to respond, unnerving markets. In this new episode of escalation in trade tensions, China announced that it will impose tariffs ranging from 5% to 10% on $75 billion U.S. goods in two batches, effective on Sept. 1 and Dec. 15, including a 25% tariff on U.S. cars. At the annual central bank summit in Jackson Hole, U.S. Fed Chair Powell left the door open for another rate cut when the committee meets next month, acknowledging the risks to global and U.S. growth from trade uncertainty. While central banks and trade dominate the headlines, it should not be lost that economic and corporate data remain fairly positive. Retail sales in Canada for the month of June exceeded expectations, and earnings from several high-profile U.S. retailers last week were solid, indicating that the consumer remains in good shape. #bonds #stocks #investing #investment #resp #rdsp #tfsa #rrsp #tariffs #yield #fixedincome #retirement #education #taxes #kingtownship #kingcity #schomberg #nobleton #insurance #disabilityinsurance #longtermcare #criticalinsurance

  • Weekly Market Update. Canadian and U.S. stocks declined on persisting signs of a global economic slowdown and renewed yield-curve worries.The White House announcement that some tariffs scheduled to take place in September would be delayed until December instigated a short-lived market rally. This rally was later reversed by disappointing German and Chinese economic data, and by a brief inversion of a closely watched portion of the U.S. yield curve. The 10-year U.S. rates dipped below two-year rates for the first time since 2007, and 30-year yields fell to a record low near 2%. Similarly, in Canada 30-year yields touched a record low of 1.34%. Economic news was not completely lopsided to the negative, however. U.S. productivity grew at a healthy pace, and U.S. retail sales for the month of July were up the most in four months. In our view, recession fears are overblown, but lingering global uncertainties are likely to keep volatility elevated. We believe reasonable valuations, low interest rates, and still-solid economic fundamentals are all supportive of stocks to continue to move higher, but with periodic hiccups along the way. #bonds #stocks #investing #investment #resp #rdsp #tfsa #rrsp #tariffs #yield #fixedincome #retirement #education #taxes #kingtownship #kingcity #schomberg #nobleton #insurance #disabilityinsurance #longtermcare #criticalinsurance #lifeinsurance

  • Weekly Market Update. Canadian and U.S. stocks recorded their worst week this year on worries that escalating trade tensions could further slow global economic growth. The U.S. announced a 10% tariff on $300 billion worth of Chinese goods starting in September. Crude oil prices experienced the largest one-day drop in over four years before partly recovering later in the week, while 10-year Canadian bond yields and U.S. treasury yields fell to the lowest level since 2016. In what was an action-packed week, the U.S. Federal Reserve cut rates for the first time in a decade, citing uncertainty in the outlook, softness in business investment, and below-target inflation. The Fed's assessment of the U.S. economy, however, did not change, with officials acknowledging strength in the labour market, a pickup in consumer spending, and a moderately growing economy. The July U.S. jobs report confirmed that despite trade tensions and other global uncertainties, the labour market remains a source of strength for the U.S. economy. #bonds #stocks #investing #investment #tfsa #rrsp #Tariffs #yields #fixedincome #kingtownship #kingcity #schomberg #nobleton #insurance #disabilityinsurance #longtermcare #criticalinsurance

  • Weekly Market Update. Canadian stocks were mixed and U.S. stocks finished lower last week, with most of the attention shifting to corporate earnings announcements. Bank earnings kicked off the U.S. second-quarter earnings season. While results were mixed, solid loan growth and low credit losses indicate a healthy consumer, which bodes well for the U.S. economy. The energy sector lagged, as oil prices declined for five straight days, finishing 7% lower on global demand concerns. This week investors will get a good read on the manufacturing trends with a number of industrial companies reporting earnings. Sector leadership tends to alternate over time, which underscores the importance of ensuring that portfolios are diversified across sectors and subsectors.

  • Weekly Market Update. Expectations for monetary easing around the world continue to drive stocks higher. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rallied to a record high, closing above 27,000 for the first time, following the Fed chairman's testimony to Congress. Powell conveyed that the case for more accommodative policy had strengthened, further solidifying expectations for a rate cut in the coming months. Canadian stocks ended slightly lower for the week, as the Bank of Canada (BoC) held its overnight rate at 1.75%. In its statement, the BoC mentioned that while Canada's economy is returning to potential growth, the outlook is clouded by persistent trade tensions. As the second-quarter earnings season kicks off next week and attention shifts from central banks to earnings, we think volatility will likely pick up. With domestic large-cap stocks near all-time highs, we think now is a good opportunity to rebalance portfolios that have strayed far from the initial target asset allocation. #bonds #stocks #investing #investment #tfsa #rrsp #Tariffs #yields #fixedincome #kingtownship #kingcity #schomberg #nobleton #insurance #disabilityinsurance #longtermcare #criticalinsurance
