Despite recent bank failures and high inflation’s dampening of economic productivity, the Canadian stock market is brimming with potentially untapped value.

Firstly, the fall of Silicon Valley Bank, Signature Bank and Silvergate Bank in the U.S., and the near miss for the loss-making Credit Suisse following its acquisition by UBS, have left most investors fearing that ripple effects may spread across sectors and lead to another bear market.

Secondly, Statistics Canada reported February inflation at 5.2 per cent, which is down from 8.1 per cent last June – an encouraging trajectory for those affected by high food and fuel prices – but still well above the Bank of Canada’s (BoC) 2-per-cent target.

Consensus sees the BoC continuing to pause on rate hikes, despite the U.S. Fed’s 0.25-per-cent move earlier this week, due to ongoing banking sector instability. Conversely, an accelerating slowdown in the U.S., which is Canada’s most important trade partner, would undoubtedly affect our economic output and give the BoC plenty of food for thought, a scenario we can see reflected in the TSX’s over 4-per-cent drop since early March.

This uncertainty about our central bank’s next policy decision, slated for April 12, places all eyes on how Canadian industry fluctuates in response to turmoil in Europe and the U.S. over the next two-and-a-half weeks.

That said, regardless of where the macro wind blows, the market will continue to recognize a business’ intrinsic value over the long term and reward investors who identify value before the herd comes rolling in. TMH readers lent most of their attention this week to three stories from companies that fit this description, where long growth runways, industry tailwinds, and readily comprehensible use cases have arguably yet to be fully reflected in share price action.
