5 from 5i: Value is cheaper than momentum

Chris White Nov 15, 2019

Market View

White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said on Thursday that the US and China are getting close to a trade agreement. The OPEC faces increased competition in 2020 over rising supplies next year. The US dollar strengthened while gold ended the week in negative. The Canadian dollar was 75.57 cents. U.S. S&P500 was up 1.1% this week and TSX was up 1.1% as well.

Healthcare was hit the most this week following some poor results by cannabis stocks. Healthcare slipped by 7.7%, followed by energy, which slid 2.2%. Consumer Discretionary and Financials, both rose by 0.2%, respectively. Canopy Growth reported a bigger than expected quarterly loss, hit by $32.7 million in restructuring charges for returns and pricing allowances primarily related to its softgel and oil portfolio. Canada Goose posted better-than-expected quarterly earnings with it's wholesale business reporting a 22.2% jump in sales to $219.8 million and retail stores and online operations surging 47% to $74.2 million. Loblaw reported market-beating quarterly profit helped by increased sales at its pharmacies and food stores. The most heavily traded shares by volume were Aurora Cannabis, Manulife Financial, and Enbridge.
