Q – I’m an IBM retiree and bought shares through IBM’s payroll deduction plan, reinvested the dividends, and inherited some.

* U.S. stock markets back off record highs.
* BMO shutters income fund.

* Franklin Templeton launches new Canada fund.

* U.S. stock markets back off record highs. A subdued outlook and declining quarterly earnings from General Electric Co. (NYSE: GE) put the brakes on a week-long rally in U.S. stock markets, as the big indices retreated a notch or two in Friday’s session. Still, the S&P 500 Composite Index hit a record high last week and posted a 0.5% gain on the week overall. The Nasdaq Composite Index also posted a record high on Thursday, but retreated on Friday, advancing 1.2% for the week. Toronto’s benchmark S&P/TSX Composite Index also pulled back on Friday as crude oil prices retreated -2.6% on the week, and as Canada’s June inflation rate continued below the Bank of Canada’s target. However, the index was about flat for the week, as energy issues weighed on performance, while stronger retail sales in May helped cushion a futher decline. The retail sales data also gave the Canadian dollar a boost, which closed at US$0.7976 on Friday.

I recently read an interesting article in the Monty Pelerin’s World website titled “The Trump Effect and Markets – Market Update.” It argued that the initial “Trump effect” as it relates to the market is wearing off and is being replaced by the reality that Trump and his ideas may not be welcome in Washington.
