Hot Canadian Stocks To Own For 2019

I have been bullish on Canadian intermediate oil and gas producer Canacol Energy (OTCQX:CNNEF) for some time. In my last article on the intermediate upstream oil and gas producer way back in March 2014, when it was heavily under-followed, I calculated that it offered investors potential upside of up almost 39%. Before the price of oil collapsed, which to an extent derailed the investment thesis, Canacol topped out at $7.45 per share or 20% short of the $9.37 target.

Since then the company has worked hard to reinvent itself so as to reduce its reliance upon oil and exploit a range of opportunities that exist within its primary operating location Colombia.

Best Safest Stocks To Own For 2018

I love talking about investments that can make you lots of money. But you know what I love even more? Simple strategies that can SAVE you lots of money with very little effort.

After all, even the safest investments carry risk. Meanwhile, some money-saving strategies can end up putting a lot more cash in your pockets with absolutely ZERO risk!

Take car insurance. Despite all the commercials and billboards featuring ducks, geckos, and crazy comedian ladies, I hadnt shopped around in five or six years.

But when we changed up our households car assortment and our premiums shot up substantially — I decided to see what other carriers could do for me.

At the risk of sounding like an ad, the process literally did take just 15 or 20 minutes with each company I investigated. Yet the savings were massive

Progressive ended up being 30% cheaper than Liberty Mutual.

Meanwhile, Geico offered the same level of coverage at 58% less cost!

Needless to say, I switched.
