  1. Mick/NV Says: which I have mentioned a number of times , moved above r1 pivot point resistance this morning to a record high, the stock is up a little over 16% ytd and looks to continue that trend with both Canada and the U.S. talking about more infrastructure spending, of course that could be just talk. Wsp is not a dividend grower but has paid the same dividend for a number of years and yields around 3%, that should not change going forward

    Over the past 5 years the stock is up 160%, well above the tsx and s&p

    Small cap index Russell 2000 is exactly in the same spot like in December 2016 , flat.

    It will have to move , up or down .
    So except big cap tech , not a big movement in stocks .

    The wide moat 7 Canadian stocks featured in the article have provided safe, sturdy income growth with good price performance over the past 2 decades. Past performance doesn’t dictate future performance but these stocks outperformed and didn’t cut their dividends through 2 major recessions. By themselves the 7 only cover 3 sectors but they do make nice core holdings in a long term portfolio. Personally, I think FTS, CU and EMA would make great additions to make these a great wide moat 10.

    Congrats Mick/NV on wsp. I made some good trades in early 14 and 15 but then let it drop off the radar. It has had a good run since mid 16.
