Top Investment Picks for 2018


Passive Canadian Income: Tahoe Resources Inc (TSE:THO)

“I think the Escobal mine will come back online next year. Which would be a hige catalyst for a higher price. Also if the cryptos really pull back the market might follow suit. Rushing people back into precious metals.”

Pollies Dividend: General Electric (GE)

“They have been beaten down in 2017. The new management Will start the turnaround”

rayray: Gilead Sciences Inc (GILD)

“This year I’m looking at putting more money in GILD, not because I think it’s going to skyrocket but rather it’s a nice long term investment to help build wealth.”

Roadmap2Retire: Ether (ETH)

“I’m going to go with a cryptocurrency this year. ETH is the second largest cryptocurrency by market cap, and has a much broader application usecase. ETH, unlike Bitcoin (which gets all the press coverage), enables the smart contract platform allowing other companies to leverage on the underlying blockchain and just focus on business logic instead. In addition, the team at Ethereum has made tremendous headway at scalability problems (crossed 1M transactions per day in Dec 2017) and has a very good roadmap going forward. While BTC enjoys the “reserve currency” status in the crypto world, ETH comes a close second, while providing a great alternative for users who want manageable transaction times, low transaction fees, and more importantly an overall better user experience.”

Rocco Matteo: Savaria Corp (TSE:SIS)

“Acquisitions will be accretive in 2018 and more to come.”

Stocles: Magnolia Bostad AB (STO:MAG)

“Magnolia (MAG). Swedish property company which is underpriced with more than 80%. Why it will gain? Because people think that just because it´s a property company, the revenue comes from property sales. Itsn´t not, so in this case, the market is wrong. Target price for 2018 is 95 SEK and while writing the price is 50 SEK. “

Tawcan: Canopy Growth Corp (TSE:WEED)

“With a ticker name of WEED and legalization in Canada coming up. Why not?”

Time in the Market: NetEase Inc (NTES)

“I went into detail as to why I think video games and China in particular offers a compelling investment opportunity in my post here and I had to pick one stock that will do well in 2018 it’s NTES. It has exposure to the video game market and growing exposure to the Chinese e-commerce market, both of which I expect to grow at a solid clip due to the emergence of the Chinese middle class.”

  1. A very diverse set of picks this year. Interested to seeing if the crypto currencies, commodities and weed stocks can out perform more traditional holdings. Good luck to everyone!

    • Yes, I do see a change in the picks. What used to be just stocks in the past, has now turned into stocks, commodities, cryptos etc…quite a mix here and as you said, very diverse.


  2. JC says:

    Hope that the closing price from 2017 is the start price because if so GBLX is off to a good start at +20% on day 1. Should be fun to track this as the year goes on. Lots of different asset types in this years mix.

  3. This is a nice list. Some of these I am interested in and others I have no interest in. It is awesome to see the opinions of others in the community. Myself I like acquiring commodities at this point regardless if its a gold and silver play or if its an oil and gas play. I am very excited to see what lies ahead for all us in 2018. Good luck to everyone and thanks for sharing R2R.

  4. Always fun to play the “fortune teller” game. I think crypto will continue to make news in 2018. Last year my pick CCP was merged with SBRA. Not sure how that was calculated 🙂 Let’s see where we are in one year.

    • Its a fun exercise. I am not sure how to calculate the merger…so, I left it out of the overall calculations. I guess I could’ve switched to SBRA as your pick? Anyway…lets hope this year is a good one too


  5. Woho, price of my pick is up more than 20%. Nice, btw, to you use total return or price return? I’d say that price return is cheating, because companies like T and my pick, Magnolia, pay a dividend of around 3-6%; which is return, but the price will also fall because of this payment, while others don’t. Should be included if one want’s to compare, but I understand that it will mean more work :/

  6. The Board of Sampo Oyj proposes to the General annual meetingto be held 19 April 2018 a dividend of EUR 2,60 per share (2,30). The dividend propoced to paid 26 March 2018.

    Nice 13% dividend rise.
