If you happen to own shares in a private corporation, especially a family-owned business, then you should be aware of a couple of common tax traps to avoid. Owner-managers are usually so busy running their business, that sometimes it’s hard to step back and make sure that the corporate ownership doesn’t bring about its own slew of issues. Here’s a look at how to avoid the biggest of these traps: the “association” rules.

Concerns about the health of the global economy, the effects of the U.S.-China trade and tariff dispute, rising interest rates, and the flattening yield curve combined to make the stock market slump of the fourth quarter of 2018 one of the worst in a long time. Toronto’s benchmark S&P/TSX Composite Index dropped 11% in the quarter, as a 38% drop in the price of crude oil weighed on energy producers. The index ended the year with an annual loss of 11.6%. Similarly, New York’s blue-chip S&P 500 Composite Index plunged 14% in the fourth quarter for an overall 6.2% loss in the year.

The major North American stock indices rallied again this week, buoyed by reports that China and the U.S. were negotiating trade concessions that would see China increase imports from the U.S. to bring its trade deficit with the U.S. to zero.

U.S. annual inflation decelerated to 1.9% as December’s month-over-month rate fell 0.1% as energy prices declines. The calmer inflation picture in both countries suggests both the Bank of Canada and the Federal Reserve have plenty of wiggle room to ease off further rate hikes in the immediate future. Toronto’s S&P/TSX Composite Index gained 2.4% on the week, helped along by a 4.2% rise in the price of crude oil. The main U.S. indices followed suit, with the S&P 500 Composite gaining 2.9% on the week, and the Nasdaq Composite rising 2.7%.

Over the long-term,
CI Signature High Income Fund has been a stellar performer, offering an attractive mix of solid total returns, a stable stream of income, and below-average volatility. That has earned it three annual FundGrade A+ Awards. In the shorter term, however, it has struggled, trailing the index and peer group in 2018. A key reason for this underperformance has been the portfolio’s construction.
