  • Canada’s big banks dominate the list with five in the top 10.
  • The biggest gainer in lookups was Northwest Healthcare Properties REIT, as investors try to make sense of the possible negative impact of rising interest rates and high inflation on REITs in general. Northwest was recently ranked among the most oversold stocks on TSX.
  • Tesla was the only non-TSX stock to crack the list as it continues to receive storied investor interest worldwide.
