The Types of Stocks we cover can be seen by checking out our list and performance from past years, see and all years since 2000. The graph below is updated through February 4, 2023.

Many of our stocks are mid-size companies. Mostly profitable, dividend-paying Canadian companies. And we also feature some of the largest and best known companies in North America as well. We have Canadian stocks (some of which also trade in the U.S.) and also a good selection of U.S. stocks. We also have high yield Canadian entities as well as growth stocks.

Our Stock Picks have returned an average of 11.2% per year in the 23 years ending December 31, 2022 (despite some down years) – not counting dividends. 11.2% is actually not earth-shattering but consider that over the same period the Toronto Stock Exchange gained just 3.7% compounded and the S&P 500 gained 4.1% compounded annually -n both cases also not counting dividends. And 11.2% compounded for 23 years turns $1.00 into $11.49 or $100,000 into $1.15 million – not too shabby!

We generally have no oil and gas stocks, no gold stocks, few or no mining stocks, few or no penny stocks, and no scientific research oriented stocks. Those stocks do not lend themselves to fundamental analysis using financial statements. What we do have is companies engaged in businesses including: retailing, software, banking, credit cards,  insurance, communications, transportation, real estate, property development, home building, and consulting engineering, and also a selection of higher dividend yield entities.

To invest in our Stock Picks you will need to have an investment account with your bank or brokerage. If you don’t have one, check out our article on how to get started.

We use fundamental analysis techniques only. This includes both numerical and non-numerical analysis. We attempt to identify companies that are under-valued in the market. Also we attempt to identify highly profitable companies and then ride along with them as they compound up their values over time through growth.

We are located in Canada and have traditionally marketed our product to Canadians. About half of our Stock Picks trade on the U.S. exchanges. The remainder trade in Toronto and depending on your broker it may be a little more difficult for Americans to buy stocks on Toronto. But certainly it is possible to do so.
