Welcome to the November 18th edition of our weekend roundup! It seems to me, at least in Alberta, that winter is here to stay. It was a pretty cold week in Alberta and I wouldn’t doubt this is going to be a long and cold winter.
What did we get up to this week? Well, we’ve been on a “top stock” binge for quite a while now and with the success of our dividend, growth, and cannabis articles we decided to make another one. This week we have proudly published our top 5 banking stocks in Canada. This piece obviously goes hand in hand with our dividend article as all 5 of the banks featured on this list are included in our top 15 dividend stocks. Canadian banks are a great sector to invest in, some would almost consider them near bullet-proof. Have a look!
No real theme to our roundup this week, just a bunch of great articles we found caught our eye, including some holiday spending help. Have a great weekend everyone!
