Today, we look at a U.S. dividend stock we believe has excellent prospects in a challenging industry. Pharmaceutical companies face a distinct set of problems, including regulatory hurdles, frequent litigation and growing competition from generic drugmakers. Yet Pfizer continues to find effective responses to these challenges, largely through well-focused research spending and strategic acquisitions. This includes the takeover of a leading maker of biosimilar drugs, an innovative new field. And Pfizer has raised its dividend payout every year since 2010, for a …read more »
Today, we look at a stock that has made tremendous gains for us and our subscribers and continues to earn our recommendation as one of the best investments in Canada today. Convenience store operator Alimentation Couche-Tard is one of the rare Canadian stocks that has expanded successfully into the United States. And beyond: its purchase of Norway’s Statoil Fuel and Retail outlets has generated steady revenue for the company. Couche-Tard’s history of choosing and integrating beneficial acquisitions has made it a consistently rewarding …read more »
Today, Pat McKeough examines one of the world’s largest mining stocks in response to a question from a member of his Inner Circle.

As well as holding up to 25% of their portfolios in U.S. stocks, we believe Canadian investors can benefit from holding as much as 10% in international stocks. ETFs offer a relatively safe way to do this. While we see several overseas ETFs we follow as holds in a slow global economy, we continue to view these two international ETFs as buys, although for more aggressive investors.

Swaying, vibrating theatre seats may seem to be a rather specialized area of expertise, but they’re making money for one Canadian tech stock. D-BOX Technologies, a penny stock based in Quebec, sells its motion system technology to movie theatres, amusement parks and training simulator firms. With its systems installed or due to be installed in 402 theaters in 29 countries, D-BOX has seen its revenue jump, and its earnings have moved into positive territory.

Today, we report on a blue chip stock that has made big gains for us and our subscribers over the years. We have every confidence it will do so again even though its shares have fallen back in a slow economy. CP Rail has shown an admirable ability to adapt to changing business conditions, and to unlock hidden value in its assets—and there are many such assets still to be developed in a company that has been in business for 134 years.
