Jewels of Canadian Manufacturing

This neglected sector should not be ignored – and might provide some outsized gains

Manufacturing is not a big part of the S&P/TSX index. The difficulty is compounded by the fact that ‘manufacturing’ does not stand on its own as a sector.

Where are these companies, then? You might assume manufacturers would fall under ‘industrial products and subservices’, but this sector also includes Finning (a Caterpillar machinery reseller), Canadian National Railway and Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers. At the same time, you might find manufacturers in other subsectors like clean technology, consumer products and services, life sciences and technology.
