I get my stock investment ideas from my own research (to read about my extensive experience in that area, click here) as well as from the RBC Investment Strategy Committee, which is comprised of senior economists, portfolio strategists and research analysts. The Strategy Committee makes recommendations on portfolio structure, including:

  • The optimum mix of stocks, bonds, and cash
  • Suggested term for fixed-income investments
  • A focus list of top-ranked Canadian stocks collectively expected to outperform the benchmark TSX

I also have access to research from several leading firms:

  • Industry-leading RBC Capital Markets covers close to 700 companies in all major industry sectors in North America
  • Independent Veritas provides in-depth reports on major Canadian companies exclusively to RBC Dominion Securities
  • Several leading U.S. investment firms like Standard & Poors offer coverage of companies around the world
