The MoneySense Top 200 gives you a more objective look at large Canadian stocks than you're likely to find from any other single source. If you're looking for a sensible take on any large Canadian stock, you'll find the Top 200 an invaluable way to generate promising investment ideas.
We identified the largest 200 companies in Canada by revenue. We then evaluated each stock, first for its attractiveness as a value investment, then on its appeal as a growth investment. Our value and growth screens employ sophisticated measures of financial merit, but in the end we reduce everything about a stock to two grades — one for value appeal, one for growth potential.
Only a select group of stock-those that manage to achieve at least one A and one B on both the value and the growth tests make our All-Around All-Stars. Only nine stocks made the grade this summer.
How to use our tables
Our Top 200 list is interactive and easy to use. Sort the value and growth stock selections by any one of 20 financial ratios and performance figures simply by clicking on the respective column name. To reverse the order, simply click the column name again.
To load a profile page with all of our information about an income investment, click the stock or trust name. Create custom lists with ratios you select. Download the lists into a convenient spreadsheet.
