As a qualified financial advisor (CSC) , I have to say that this thread is pretty misinformed and downright silly. Of course you cant invest in any freeskiing companies nor should you want to. You should continue to support freeskiing companies as much as you can by buying their shit, and then go ahead and ask someone like me how to make money. Almost all of my clients want to invest in things that they LIKE, without actually thinking through a strategic investment plan to maximize returns. Often they do not take my advise, they lose money, and then complain.
My advise right now:
Invest in a solid canadian natural resource export mutual fund, also australian ones are doing quite well.
OR invest in one of the big german mutual funds , because they are also doing very very well.
If you want something less risky the rates for GICs will be going up quite soon, so dont lock in long term.
Also , SELL YOUR FUCKING CONDO, if you live in Van, Montreal, Ottawa or Toronto, there is a huuuge vancancy rate and a huuge amount of speculation and purchasing of condos for investment purchase (ive heard as much as 50% in Toronto), which create enormous imbalances in the markets. On the flip side, the rental market for condos in the next 3 years will be very very very good , which is gonna be awesome for us young people living cheap and saving for our first place!!!
you heard it here first kiddos .
oh and you can always PM me I love talking about this shit, and making people money
