5 from 5i: Something of value

Chris White Jan 15, 2021

Market View

US President-elect unveiled a $1.9 trillion coronavirus fiscal plan. J&J’s one-shot Covid vaccine showed a promising immune response in the early trial. The Canadian dollar slid as Chinese lockdowns weighed on investor sentiment. On the other hand, the US dollar edged higher against a basket of currencies. According to CREA, Canadian home sales soared in December to cap record year. Oil prices slipped and gold prices were slightly lower. The Canadian dollar was 78.54. U.S. S&P500 ended the week down 0.7%, while the TSX ended the week down 0.2%. 

It was a mixed bag of greens and reds this week. Healthcare rose another 15.1%, while energy and financials gained 1.2%, each. Consumer staples slid 3.5%, and industrials gave up 2.3%. The most heavily traded shares by volume were BlackBerry Limited, Aphria Inc., and The Green Organic Dutchman.
