Beating the TSX (again)

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.
