Tuesday saw the S&P 500 up 0.1% and Toronto up 0.2%. So the markets have shrugged off the North Korean missile shot.

Penny stock Ceapro bounced up 6 cents or 11%. But I would not read much into that as there was no news. The company does have cash and is in no danger financially and so the decline probably was over done. A substantial recovery in this stock is likely a long ways off and depends on the success of their research and development.

Alimentation Couche-Tard is expected to post strong Q1 earnings today, probably after the close.
