Every month in my Top Funds Report newsletter, I write a summary of my views about specific funds and fund companies based on queries from readers. These are often funds that have undergone management changes or that are new issues, a little less well known, or not as widely covered as some of the high fliers. This month I want to take a look at a couple of global offerings, one from iA Clarington and one from Manulife.

There’s nothing like a good house flipping show to get you thinking about the cash potential in your own home. The house flipper approach is to buy homes, live in them short-term while fixing them up, and then sell them, often for big profits.

The major U.S. stock market gauges piled on the gains this past week, as investors reacted positively to comments from China’s Premier Li Keqiang that while a trade agreement between China and the U.S. was still several weeks away, China remained “very responsible and reasonable.” U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said there was still a lot of work to do. Li also stated that China would keep stimulus measures in place in an effort to reignite China’s economic growth. The S&P 500 Composite Index advanced 2.9% on the week as a result, while the tech-weighted Nasdaq Composite Index gained 3.8%.
