This episode, host Mark Therriault speaks with Chief Investment Officer of Nicola Wealth, Rob Edel. They touch on a variety of subjects, such as: the trade wars between the U.S. and China, NAFTA, interest rates continuing to go up in the short term (and what that means for the U.S. economy as well as Canada), what kind of stocks you should be looking for in this type of environment, as well as an overall review of the Global economy itself.
Rob also explains the reasoning behind the yield curve flattening or inverting, the big concern about inflation, what companies and opportunities he sees outperforming in this type of environment in the short to medium term, his thoughts on whether or not China will be able to withstand the imposing tariffs on their imports by the U.S, and if he thinks Canada is positioned safely in terms of where things are going economically in the U.S.
