Mutual Fund Link of the Month

Do you 'Doo? I seem to check the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Club's website every few days in January and February. The list of 30,000 km of trails available is amazing. Like canoeing, riding a Skidoo is a quintessential Canadian experience. And the new generation of 4 stroke machines have changed the sound, demographics and experience of snowmobiling from the noisy and smelly adventures of the past.

So how is this site of the month investment related? Well if you own shares of DOO, the new stock name for BRP (Bombardier Recreational Products) division that makes Skidoo and Can Am vehicles - the trail conditions may relate to the sales of their sleds. And last year with the cold and snow, BRP sold out of their 2014 inventory around mid-February according to a local dealer. Check out the site for some financial and winter fun. (Note: This is not a buy or sell recommendation. Also note that DOO is now a different company from Bombardier BBD.B, which is the air and rail mobility company. Contact us directly for advice tailored to your personal situation.)
