Stocks are trading below Peter Lynch value

Despite housing starts dropping in February, lower mortgage rates are giving the housing market a rosier outlook.

Reuters reported that the Commerce Department recorded an 8.7% decrease in housing starts to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1.162 million units, the largest percent decline in eight months as a result, in part, of bad weather. Construction of single-family homes tumbled to a one-and-a-half-year low. Building permits also fell 1.6% to a rate of 1.296 million units.

While homebuilders bear the brunt of the impact from changes in the housing market, the companies that provide the necessary

Letter from the Canadian fund manager

The fourth quarter of 2017 rounded out what was a very strong year for investment performance across most asset classes.

Equity market returns were solid, particularly in the United States where expectations of late-cycle stimulus (in the form of tax cuts) provided a boost to valuations into year-end and drove the market 7.2% higher (in Canadian dollars) over the fourth quarter and 13.8% for the year.

These returns also were delivered with limited market volatility; in fact, 2017 marked the first year since the early 1980s where S&P 500 returns were positive in every calendar month. While our US equity

Barron's recently wrote an article about the best fund families of 2016; First Trust Advisors was No. 5

Just last week I attended an Insight Forum sponsored by First Trust. Interestingly, neither First Trust nor any of the other top five fund families are based on Wall Street or even in the New York City environs. State Street and Natixis are in Boston, American Funds and Pimco are in southern California and First Trust is headquartered in Wheaton, a suburb of Chicago where I once lived.

None of these firms are known for their offerings of passive index investments, although they may be invested so close to their benchmark in some cases that they may as well be.
