It's mostly commodities and energy based which won't see a rebound for quite a while.

But I'm tempted because the value is so good right now. People will still buy nickel and copper and other base metals, so I think I might actually consider it.

Stick it in VFV and reap the gains as canada falls into the abyss

CAD is tied closely to oil/energy which has already tanked and is expected to go down more, and the value already shows this. I doubt it will ever hit 0.60 USD.

Canada is stable and progressive, our finincial sector isn't going anywhere, and the new gov't is sure to bring stimulus to businesses to save face.

You said in your other post to not invest in VCN unless it's "for a really long time."

I think that's what most people on this board and in Canada in general are looking for. There is not point investing short term unless you have a lot of capital to put up or are really desperate.

I meant a long time to see any sort of return.

Honestly with how the liberal government is treating our oil and gas industry and farmers I'm not really betting much on it.

I think it's much safer to go with VFV.

Oil will remain super low regardless due to numerous factors especially since the sanctions on Iran were lifted.

>>
>>1083237

Dude, VFV has lost 5% in like 2 weeks.

While energy has probably already bottomed out so VCN is good value.

Most S&P stocks are highly overvalued, they will probably correct, so buying in at peak isn't very smart either.

Interestingly, there is a special rule that applies to Canadian public companies that have been delisted. Shares of Canadian listed corporations which are subsequently moved to over-the-counter status continue to be qualified investments for a TFSA and other registered plans. But this rule doesn’t apply to U.S. or other foreign stocks.

The consequences of investing in a non-qualified investment inside your TFSA can be quite severe. First of all, there is an automatic penalty of 50% of the fair market value of the non-qualified investment in the year it is purchased by the TFSA. Fortunately, as long as you can demonstrate that it was purchased inadvertently, this penalty can be refunded in the year the non-qualified investment is disposed of by the TFSA.

But the real problem is that the TFSA itself must pay tax, at the top marginal tax rate, on any income or capital gains earned from the non-qualified investment. To make matters worse, the capital gain is taxed in full, and not at the normal 50% inclusion rate.

False? Let's see your VFV performance since Jan 1st? Unless you're buying a different VFV, it's been losing money since.

>>1083291

I think it's gonna fall down to the a level slightly above 2009. That's when the Fed REALLY started injecting money into markets with the bond buy-back and all that shit. They pumped up the markets with virtual cash and now we're gonna go back down to what the real numbers should be - corporate performance.
>>
>>1083298
>slightly above 2009

Damn, if you're right, that's like a 40% drop. But if previous such drops are to go by, after that it's buy and forget for ETFs.
>>
>>1083298
>Since Jan first

So because it does poorly for a month it's bad? If it keeps dropping that means it's a good time to buy.

I'd rather stick with the s&p than some Canadian bullshit knowing how this country runs and operates.
>>
>>1083296
I can't even think of an example of when a person could have purchased a stock, it tanked so hard it got de-listed and moved to OTC, and then the person still made capitals gains off of it.

Again, the system is pretty idiot proof, CIBC just plain won't allow you to buy OTCMKT in from your TFSA account.

Well, I mean that's the worst case scenario I figure. And it may not be a huge sell-off, it might just be a gradual tapering for years, like we saw on the TSX, which has been shedding money for like 3 years now.

But then I'm just some jerk on the internet going by very fundamental fundamentals.

In the interest of avoiding yet another Canadian lamentation thread, I'll ask this here--

What's the deal with CMHC-insured mortgages? I understand they're necessary for a 5% down mortgage. What happens if that mortgage goes underwater/the owner loses their job? Does this create a bankruptcy/do they lose the house?

What is the assessment in the context of overvalued housing and dropping buying power? Is this a sensible thing to engage in?

Does the insurance effectively offset the risk involved in buying into this housing market at this time, or is it really just insurance for the banks' loan balance and the owner would get fucked in a non-payment scenario?

I think there's more value in Canadian equities right now than inflated American stuff.

Canadian equities are mostly based on commodities and energy, and these will always be consumed: copper, nickel, alloys, gold and of course energy. These will inevitably go up, so I think there's value in the TSX since it's been taking such a beating.

On the other hand, American stocks are so inflated with federal cash through 7 years of QE, I think they're correcting back to levels that are supported by corporate performance rather than ratings or earnings mumbo jumbo.

You can criticize him whenever and however you want, but if you blame things on him that he obviously has no control over someone is going to call you an idiot. Idiot.

Blaming the current state of the economy on Trudeau is like when Rona Ambrose criticized Trudeau for not legalizing marijuana fast enough (look it up, she did!). I mean, really? Really?

My point is you can pay into this insurance for decades and never sees a return. There are other issues with this that you can look up on your own.

>Someone explain infrastructure spending.

More infrastructure makes the economy more efficient.

>Isn't it just one crooked construction company getting a fat contract and subcontracting it out to these minimum wage immigrants?

Not even remotely. The spending ripples through the economy. A project will boost materials, labour, engineering, hardware, trucking etc. and these industries will boost those they rely on.

>How does a couple orange vests milling around a street causing traffic help? Sure that road looks swell a few months later but I didn't get a raise to spend more at the store there.

A single highway overpass can take 20-30 45tonne NU girders, which is a couple of months work at a precast plant. This pumps huge amounts of money into the economy and at the very least helps ensure the stability of your employment.
