    I haven't read anything about how much they're paying for all of these companies that they've been aquiring. Be interested to see how this year's volatility and drop in US indexes how that effects the AUM and profits from the fee's on this. Buying firms in 2021 while at market highs will this pay off.

    2021 Top Performers
    10 Top Performing Canadian Stocks in 2021 Of all the companies in our coverage universe, these made the most of a weird/good year.

    If the stock market’s recovery from COVID wasn’t swift enough, 2021 surely more than made up for lost ground. But bullishness aside, it’s felt like a market in transition, with opportunities and threats, from great economic growth potential to debt levels and inflation – which makes for a stock picker's market.

    Some investors see a rotation to value stocks, some see deflationary periods ahead benefitting select growth stocks, and others have an eye on the general health of broad markets for the buy signal. With all these signals (or noise, whichever way you want to look at it) can you imagine what the top 10 stocks in Canada, in terms of performance, look like for this year? If you’d guessed defensives and value, led by a trendy growth stock and paired with some classic core yielders, you’d be right on the money.

    Lithium Americas Corp
    The top performing stock is a play on lithium. As the batteries in electric vehicles rely on lithium as a core component, Lithium Americas Corp (LAC) is looking to become a leading low-cost supplier. With three production sites planned, senior equity analyst Seth Goldstein says the company could become a top-five producer.
    Goldstein reminds investors of the very high uncertainty rating for the company. They should have a strong stomach – at least until production comes online. “The stock has recently been very volatile, often moving at least 5% versus the prior day's close on little company-specific news. For investors who can tolerate the volatility, we view the company as a good opportunity to invest in growing lithium demand from increased electric vehicle adoption.
    CI Financial Corp
    The top-performer in our universe of financial stocks this year was a non-bank affiliated asset manager. Blazing its own independent path in Canada, CI Financial (CIX) has been busy this year acquiring wealth management firms both in the U.S. and Canada. “Given the timing and contribution of its wealth management deals, which are proving to be more fruitful than expected,” says sector strategist Greggory Warren, “we have increased our five-year CAGR for revenue growth to 10.4% (from 9.7% previously).”
    Investors should keep in mind the growth for Canada’s second-largest independent asset manager will come up against fee pressures, particularly around higher-fee actively managed funds. “While many of the independent asset managers have already cut fees during the past five years, primarily in response to the banks using price as a tool for taking share from the independents (which is something that we expect to continue),” says Warren.
