Globe editors have posted this research report with permission of Echelon Wealth Partner. This should not be construed as an endorsement of the report's recommendations. For more on The Globe's disclaimers please read here. The following is excerpted from the report:

We are very pleased to be reaching out following a time where H1/16 marked significant gains for investors and smaller capitalization stocks in particular. Within this positive context, we are proud to highlight the exceptional performance of our 2016 Top Picks portfolio where our eight selections provided an average return of 51.5%. By comparison, the overall TSX Composite generated a positive return of 10.4% for the first half, offsetting its decline of 11.1% during 2015.  ...

Echelon Wealth Partners continues to look for outperformance in the Technology and Healthcare/Life Sciences sectors, where Canadians are recognized leaders. On the natural resource side, we are purposefully focused on gold and technology-focused extraction.We look for continued outperformance by the gold sector with our bias for higher gold prices based on greatly diminished prospects for further interest rate increases by the US Federal reserve, potential Brexit contagion, and generally increased global economic uncertainty and social instability.
