The bulls are running

By Frances Horodelski, Anchor
Today’s line-up at BNN has some interesting interviews including the CEO of Twitch (recently purchased by Amazon for just under $1 billion), a look at the new BMW electric car, the i3, which is turning eyes and dollars away from Tesla, and designer Vince Camuto, the co-founder of Nine West, on the shoe business. Speaking of shoes, Michael Kors will be a stock to watch as investors react to the secondary offering of 11.6 million shares held by an insider as director resignations. The stock is down 5%. The Gap is also down 6% on weak same store sales.

Hold on to your hats

By Frances Horodelski, Anchor
Today’s news will center on the CRTC looking into paper invoice fees, end of month rebalancing (bonds have been the big outperformer on the month and year), low volumes (because of the North American long weekend), QE chatter (what will Mario Draghi do next week), Icelandic volcanic activity, and reaction to the slightly stronger Canadian economic activity (watch the Canadian dollar which has been supported by the inversion trade and possible buying by the bankers helping 3G fund its acquisition of Tim Hortons). BNN will also have stories on Bombardier, Bonterra and balancing bonds.
