5 Canadian Portfolio Managers You Should Follow

When it comes to the capital markets, information overload is a very distinct reality for most people, including ourselves. From countless websites and blogs dedicated to stocks, options, mutual funds, hedge funds, personal finance etc. etc. to print media and television, how can one not be inundated with too much information?

We would liken this predicament to a fairly prevalent movie scene, where prosecutors demand the surrender of documents from a large corporation, and the obliging corporation in all there goodness, supplies the prosecutors office with innumerable cartons of paper that will usually take days, if not months to sort through.

    I’ve invested using 3 of those 5 and funny thing is i’ve lost money on each. I will have to pass on the other 2.

    LOL! I remember way back Wall Street Journal did a study and found that when their own staff tossed darks at the financial section and picked stocks for their portfolio to hold for 3-5 years they were able to outperform ALL portfolio managers. Who would have thunk it?

    There are sooo many Managers out there claiming to be one of the best that even a list of the “top 5” makes me take pause.

    But still. Thank you for trying.
