Q – First of all let me say that my wife and I have subscribed to your newsletter for years and are very happy with the advice that your team provides. My question is about Canopy Growth Corp. (TSX: WEED). I was wondering what your overall impression of this company is in terms of investment. There has been a lot of hype in the news lately that has led to an increase in the stock price but I am wondering if this is just hype or does the company actually substantiate the increase. – Justin C.

* More records for U.S. indices, TSX backs off.
* EdgePoint closes Series O portfolios.
* BMO lists ETFs on NEO Exchange.
* LOGiQ shuts down Macquarie infrastructure fund.

* More records for U.S. indices, TSX backs off. The major U.S. market indices went on to close at fresh record highs again last week, while Canadian stocks retreated. The U.S. blue-chip S&P 500 Composite Index closed the week with a 0.7% advance, following the lead of the roaring Dow Jones Industrial Average, which gained 1% on the week, pushing it into new high territory with a record close of 20,821.76 on Friday. The Nasdaq Composite Index logged a hairline 0.1% advance on the week, closing Friday just marginally below a record advance. The U.S. indices were led higher by gains in utilities and telecom stocks, even as lagging energy and financial stocks put a damper on the ebullience. Toronto’s benchmark S&P/TSX Composite Index, however, lost 2% on the week, retreating in the face of sliding energy and financial stocks, which are overweighted in the index. Gold, meanwhile, gained 1.8% on the week, while crude oil advanced 1.3%.

The new CSA methodology for calculating risk ratings for mutual funds and exchange-traded funds (ETFs) had the objective of standardizing risk rating across the industry. I showed in a previous article, by reproducing the calculation on funds with 10 years of history, that 28% of funds have a projected risk rating that is different than their current risk rating. While that result was somewhat expected, the bigger surprise was that there are more funds that could potentially lower their risk rating based on the new methodology than funds that will be forced to raise it.
