Heading into a period of heightened political and economic uncertainty, Richards Packaging Income Fund (Friday’s close $80.34) has caught our attention. The fund is up more than 350 per cent in the past five years on a price basis. A big chunk of recent gains came after the fund announced second-quarter results, which included sales jumping 41 per cent in the first six months of the year versus the same period in 2019. Meanwhile, in early September, two insiders bought a total of 1,536 trust units at an average price of $75.15.
