The Canadian dollar has been on a run. Currently trading 90 cents to the U.S. dollar. Jim "Boo-Yah" Cramer reports "The Canadians just put through some terrific personal and business tax cuts guaranteed to make their economy even more robust. At the same time, the government is running a surplus."
The iShares MSCI Canada (EWC) has a nice cross section of financial and energy stocks that should continue to do well considering the current economic conditions. The fund was up 5% in April and has gained 15% year-to-date.
