After a year of lacklustre performance by the TSX I have decided to re-apply the BTSX approach. My stocks for 2016 are:
- Bank of Nova Scotia
- BCE Inc.
- Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce
- Enbridge Inc
- National Bank of Canada
- Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan Inc
- Power Financial Corp
- Shaw Communications Inc
- TELUS Corporation
- TransCanada Corporation
The BTSX system underperformed the TSX by 0.9% last year. The return for the BTSX portfolio was -8.5%. XIU returned -7.6% (both losses). Generally BTSX outperforms the TSX handily.
