5 from 5i: LYFT, the most expensive US stock to short

Chris White Apr 05, 2019

Market View

US President Donald Trump said on Thursday that the US and China were close to a trade deal that could be announced within four weeks. Markets seem to be doing positively despite another 2019 record-low trading volume day this week. The Canadian dollar was 74.75 cents. U.S. S&P500 was up 1.5% this week and TSX ended the week up 1.2%.

Four of the twelve subgroups ended in the negative territory this week. Consumer discretionary jumped the highest by 4.4%, followed by energy 2.6%, financials by 2.4%, and consumer staples 1.5%. Technology slipped by 0.9% and utilities by 0.7%.  Corus Entertainment Inc beat analyst’s estimates for quarterly profit. This was driven by a jump in television advertising revenue. The most heavily traded shares by volume were Aurora, Prometic Life Sciences and Encana Corp.
