These are not good times for income-oriented investors. Rising interest rates have put downward pressure on many high-yielding stocks, reducing the market value of their portfolios.

With the exception of the Nasdaq Composite Index, which lost 0.6% on the week, the main North American stock gauges gained fractionally with no troubling datapoints or geopolitical inflammations to overly upset traders. U.S. quarterly earnings continue to come in mostly better than expected, which is usually a signal of underlying economic strength.

The S&P 500 Composite Index remained flat on the week, while Toronto’ s S&P/TSX Composite Index gained a marginal 0.4%. Crude oil prices fell on the week as U.S. inventories increased.

Once you’ve signed on the dotted line, you actually have to undertake the move, and many homeowners, especially new ones, are shocked by the additional costs involved once they’ve actually completed the purchase. But what many homeowners don’t know is that if you’re moving closer to your place of employment or to attend post-secondary school, there’s a host of expenses you can deduct that can alleviate at least some of the financial pain of moving.
