A week that began with major stock indices dropping hundreds of points ended with those same major stock indices rebounding by an equal amount and more, to close the week with gains overall. Led by energy stocks and financials, the S&P/TSX Composite Index rallied from Monday’s 771-point plunge to gain 2.9% on the week.

Since Cambridge Global Asset Management took over CI Cambridge Canadian Dividend Fund a little more than a year ago, they have definitely put their mark on it. This is not your typical dividend fund. It is significantly underweight in financials and energy, and contains more mid-cap holdings than the average dividend fund. Yet manager Stephen Groff makes it all work – and earns the monthly Fundata FundGrade® A rating to boot. Here’s a look at how Groff and the Cambridge team do it.

Barring a total economic disaster, the U.S. Federal Reserve Board is likely to begin raising interest rates later this year, perhaps as early as September. That, combined with fears of a China-led global economic slowdown, has rattled markets and resulted in the steep selloffs over the past week.
