The second quarter of 2017 showed a nicely positive return of 1.5% for the Canadian Focused Equity (CFE) category for the month of April.

The TSX returned 0.83% and the S&P 500 returned 2.57% for the quarter. The healthcare sector was the best performer over the quarter, putting up a 5.1% return, followed closely by the Industrials sector at 4.39% for the quarter.

Q1 2017 Commentary – Mackenzie Systematic Strategies Team

The first quarter of 2017 showed positive market returns in each of the three months, continuing the global momentum from Q4 and the “Trump-Bump”. The TSX returned 2.41% for Q1 and the S&P 500 returned 6.07% for the quarter. The information technology sector was the best performer over the quarter, putting up double digit returns, as spending by consumers and corporations increased nicely since the end of the year.

Q4 2016 Commentary – Mackenzie Systematic Strategies Team

The fourth quarter of 2016 showed positive market returns in each of the three months, which was unexpected due to the tremendous uncertainty entering the US Presidential Election.  The markets cheerfully welcomed President-Elect Trump, with the S&P 500 rallying 3.8% from the election to the end of the year.
