• Four Stem-Cell Stocks With Promise

    Fate Therapeutics (FATE) is developing several small molecules that modulate umbilical-cord stem cells. Reni Benjamin, a biotech analyst at Raymond James Financial, said. The company's shares, which are already up over 40% this year, could head higher in the second half of the year, Benjamin said. "Umbilical cords are being used more and more in bone-marrow transplants, but there are a lot of problems with umbilical cords, including trying to expand these cells and get them to work really well,&q

  • China Plans to Allow Use of Foreign Currencies for Oil Trading

    China will let overseas investors trade its domestic crude futures using the yuan or foreign currencies as it seeks greater influence over prices. The oil contract will be the nation’s first futures product available to foreigners, the State Administration of Foreign Exchange said on its website Friday. Overseas participants can open foreign-exchange settlement accounts used solely for crude trading at designated banks, it said. China, the world’s largest consumer of commodities from energy to

  • 07.31 - The Morning Call: Je ne regrette rien - Edith Piaf

    We wrote about and advocated "Sell in May and Go Away". A month and a half later we reversed field back to "Invest the Money".

  • Top Canada Stocks Have Secret Sauce Amid Commodity Rout

    The best-performing Canadian stocks amid the commodities rout have one thing in common: the mighty U.S. dollar. Earnings estimates compiled by Bloomberg suggest their run will continue. Seven of the top 10 best-performing stocks in the Standard & Poor’s/TSX Composite Index this year report their businesses in U.S. dollars and generate a significant amount of their sales there. This includes the top five-ranked equities: drugmakers Concordia Healthcare Corp. and Valeant Pharmaceuticals International

  • 07.28 - The Morning Call: The End of the China Trade?

    What has been happening to stocks in China should be put into context. The Q2 GDP came in at +7.0% while estimates averaged +6.8%. Last year the GDP was +7.4%, the worst in 24 years. The bull market exploded after house and property prices had headed down. Corporate and other debt had risen to uncomfortable levels. Neither the economy nor earnings levels would have caused the jump. There was no sudden reform premium for the quality of earnings, no recognition of sustainability or for balance sheet strength (abs
