Top Picks:



Bellatrix Exploration

Story continues below advertisement

Nice V-shaped recovery from last year indicates renewed interest in a growth story. Ranks wells to its peer on the fundamental side. Potential to go to 6 in the short term. Sell below 5.



CN Rail

Buying opportunity present in this pause after a great upward trend from 2009. Charts pattern looks like a breakout from a descending triangle. This is a conservative stock. Sell below 75.



Sunshine Oilsands (listed in Hong Kong)

A higher risk play in the oilsands. With worldwide interest in our oilsands, this is a potential takeover target. Support should be strong from the Chinese. Very rare instance of a Canadian issue outside of North America.

Outlook:

"As economists struggle with mixed news, the indexes have been rising steadily for three months. The U.S. has been leading the way upwards with a broad-based rally indicating belief of a sustainable recovery. Technically, this phase of the markets could be considered the first up leg of a bull market. Our bias is positive and we are deploying cash into the markets."
