On Monday, the S&P 500 rose 1.5% while Toronto was up 0.4%.

Walmart was the highest gainer on our list, up 2.3%.

Agrium was down 2.5% after making official its plans to merge with Potash Corporation in an all stock deal. It’s hard to imagine that the competition Bureau would allow it.

I sold some Canadian Western Bank preferred shares in an RSP account  today at $18.00. The reason for this sale was to get cash to pay for a new issue of TD Bank preferred shares that I had agreed to buy.
