(Bloomberg) -- The best performing sector in Canada has lost its mojo.After eight straight months in the green, tech stocks are now on pace for their first slump this year with about C$8.3 billion ($6 billion) in market value lost -- making them the biggest losers in September.The rotation to value from growth sent stocks like Shopify Inc. on its longest losing streak on record. There was also BlackBerry Ltd.’s 30% collapse last week after reporting a massive earnings miss and forecast cut. Shopify makes up a whopping 35% of the S&P/TSX Information Technology Index, while BlackBerry has about a 3% weighting. The slump in FAANG stocks after U.S. President Donald Trump’s negative remarks about the growing power of social media platforms seeped into investor sentiment for Canadian tech too.“The pace of this recent run in technology stocks, driven in large part by the success of Shopify, was unsustainable, and likely driven in part by short covering,” said Hans Albrecht, fund manager at Toronto-based Horizons ETFs Management Canada Inc. “When that dried up the bottom fell out.”Was the epic 59% rally into August too good to be true? Sky-high valuations have slipped with the selloff but are still well above the five-year average. Shopify, which has found profit elusive, carries a forward 12-month price-earnings ratio of about 466, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.The slump may have also knocked Canadian pride down a peg or two. Shopify, along with Lightspeed POS Inc., whose shares have slumped about 38% since hitting a peak in August after pulling off one of the most successful initial public offerings in North America this year, have been held up as exhibit A and B that the country really can do tech.“Is this the end of the run for tech? Absolutely not,” Albrecht said. Unlike the U.S., Canada has a handful of tech stocks that make up a small part of the broader S&P/TSX Composite Index, pushing valuations up at an accelerated pace. “This year’s run had valuations overextend and invariably investors realize that fundamentals need to catch up at least to some extent.” The tech rally could take a pause for now and push ahead in 2020, he added.Despite the flight to value this month -- boosting heavyweights like financial and energy stocks -- last week painted a different picture -- stocks snapped their longest winning streak since April and have lost 1.2% amid political turmoil in the U.S. and evidence of slower growth in Europe.Here’s a look at what happened last week:Markets -- Just The NumbersChart of The WeekPoliticsThe federal election campaign continues in Canada as party leaders pledge tax breaks, cost reductions and corporate subsidies:Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has promised a major personal income tax break if re-elected as he tries to recover from revelations he wore blackface makeup on multiple occasions.Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer said he would “fix” the mortgage stress test if elected by reviewing it for first-time homebuyers and removing it from renewalsCanadian telcos slumped last week as Trudeau vowed to cut wireless services costs by 25% within four years.

BlackBerry Ltd. shares slid 22% Tuesday, after the cybersecurity company posted another loss for its fiscal second quarter and revenue that fell short of estimates, in a report that included the prominent use of non-standard numbers.
(Bloomberg) -- Tuesday was a day to forget for Prem Watsa, often referred to as Canada’s Warren Buffett. His Fairfax Financial Holdings Ltd. lost more than C$160 million ($121 million) just in his top five listed Canadian investments, according to the latest filings compiled by Bloomberg.BlackBerry’s abysmal fiscal second-quarter earnings, which saw one of its staunchest bulls join the bear camp, was the prime offender. The stock fell 23% on Tuesday and extended declines Wednesday to the lowest in six years.To add to the pressure, Fairfax owns BlackBerry convertible debentures. The risk of default over the next year on the C$800 million of BlackBerry debt rose to 0.1% on Tuesday from a previous estimate of 0.021%, according to the Bloomberg Default Risk Model.The second biggest culprit was Stelco Holdings Inc., which slumped 12% on Tuesday after it terminated a $300 million high-yield bond sale, citing poor steel-market conditions. The stock was down another 1.7% Wednesday.Including today’s sell-off, Fairfax would have lost about C$196 million on its top five Canadian investments from the end of trade on Monday.“Since we started in 1985, we always take a long-term view and we believe these recent price moves are short-term fluctuations on only a few of our stock holdings,” Paul Rivett, Fairfax president, said by email. “It is also worth mentioning that half of our Blackberry position is in a convertible debenture.”Here are details of the Tuesday selloff:To contact the reporters on this story: Aoyon Ashraf in Toronto at email@example.com;Paula Sambo in Toronto at firstname.lastname@example.orgTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Brad Olesen at email@example.com, Jacqueline Thorpe, David ScanlanFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
Canada's main stock index looked set to drop for the third straight session on Wednesday, hurt by declines in energy and technology shares but losses were limited by a rise in the healthcare sector. * At 9:44 a.m. ET (1344 GMT), the Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX Composite index was down 15.12 points, or 0.09%, at 16,783.21. * The energy sector dropped 0.6%, the most among the major sectors, after oil prices fell on worries that fuel demand could fall after U.S. President Donald Trump doused recent optimism over Beijing-Washington trade talks at a time of rising U.S. crude oil stockpiles.
TD Securities analyst Daniel Chan maintains a Buy rating on Blackberry with a price target lowered from $14.50 to $10. Blackberry's 23% decline is "overdone" and shares are trading at 2.8 times forward revenue, Chan wrote in a note. This multiple represents a discount versus its enterprise software peers at 4.3 times, cybersecurity peers at 3.6 times and Blackberry's own historical trading average of 4.0 times.

(Bloomberg) -- BlackBerry Ltd.’s big earnings miss and lower forward guidance has the shares tumbling almost 19% to a four-year low early Tuesday.BlackBerry’s Internet-of-Things (IoT) division and Cylance cyber security unit both missed consensus estimates and contributed to the miss, according to analysts. Shares of the Waterloo, Ontario-based company fell the most since Jan. 2015 to the lowest since Oct. 2015 on a full day’s worth of volume in the first five minutes of U.S. trading.RBC analyst Paul Treiber said the company’s IP revenue was “well above” RBC and Street estimates, but “strong IP licensing revenue doesn’t offset IoT and Cylance shortfall”. Raymond James analyst Steven Li agreed and said that BlackBerry’s enterprise software group “significantly underperformed” during its fiscal second quarter.The company’s shares also tumbled during last quarter’s earnings results as sales from software and services slowed and a recent acquisition contributed less of a boost than some analysts expected.To contact the reporter on this story: Aoyon Ashraf in Toronto at firstname.lastname@example.orgTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Brad Olesen at email@example.com, Scott SchnipperFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
