Re: Interest Rates & Deficits

Is this cycle unusual in terms of both the dollar and resource weaknesses? Usually with a lower dollar we can export more of everything especially resources, but resources are also at the low point...

Readjustment

I took the opportunity over the past couple of days to move out of some of my fixed income investments and into equities (SPY and BRK-B).

I still have a fair bit of cash and will likely invest some of it in the coming weeks.

Re: CAD

I guess I am at a loss to see how my response was impolite.

Re: CAD

So let me get this straight, anyone who disagrees with your views is a jerk.

Re: CAD

Oh yes and another issue seldom mentioned is that many Maritimers spend the majority of their working lives "down the road" and paying taxes in Alberta or Ontario then come home to retire and draw benefits in the more benevolent climate [more]

Re: SWKS Historical Valuations

I would caution trying to baseline decisions on a short 3 year history; especially when the last 3 years have seen a tremendous bull run in the market.
