One of best periods in stock market history January good month for investors By THE CANADIAN PRESS January was one of the best months in stock market his- tory but not all analysts are convinced the rally will last. The formidable rally, which lifted the Toronto industrial index to its best monthly gain on record, appeared to come at a strange time. Major in- dustrialized countries are in the middle of a recession and predictions are for more'un- employment, slower growth and lower corporate profits. However, most market watchers see the market as reflecting the belief of in- vestors that the economy is going to turn around and in- flation to slow later this year. Those who predict a contin- uing rally, with corrective dips now and then, believe that the market has not yet anticipated everything. Many shares were hit hard in last year's slump and still have a road to recovery, they say. Widely-acknowledged as a major stimulant to the mar- ket has been the rapid decline in interest rates. The return on stocks has suddenly become as attract- ive as those available on short-term money market in- vestments.

B.C. mining industry faces continual decline SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) A Placer Development Ltd. vice-president said here that British Columbia's mining in- dustry will continue to decline until the provincial and federal governments again permit fair profits. E. A. Scholz of Vancouver, in a speech to the Northwest Mining Association, said Americans would do well to avoid the example of what he called repressive B.C. legislation. Scholz said a New Democratic Party program of state ownership and control of industry has led only to layoffs and shutdowns, with a consequent loss of income, jobs, taxes, exports and technical talent. Provincial and federal governments, he said, must establish "stable political and economic environments." Scholz said mine production in British Columbia rose from million in 1942 to more than billion last year. The NDP took control in 1972, he said, and began ruin- ing the mining Industry under the guise of providing "a fair share of the benefits for the people." In fact, he said, the industry has made a 9.8 per cent return on its investments from 1968 to 1973. He said the greatest adverse impact'came from the Mineral Royalties Act and the Mineral Land Tax Act. He said those laws and new federal tax rulings have meant that some miners are taxed up to 170 per cent of their income. Also luring investors back into the market were the bar- gain prices of many shares! During the 1974 decline, the Toronto index of leading in-, dustrial shares fell to a four- year low and the New York Dow Jones average to a 12- year low. Leading the rally at Toronto were shares of oil producers, reflecting the belief that the federal-provincial dispute on resource taxation may be on the way to being resolved. Recession fighting measures proposed in the United States also helped rebuild investor confidence in an economy whose health is important to Canada. The change in attitude has been evident recently in an increase in buy recommenda- tions from brokers, although many remain cautious. E. Wayne Clendenning, eco- 'homic adviser to Richardson Securities, wrote recently of a "better environment" for .stock markets. He said "as- tute equity purchases in. 1975 should reward investors over the next year or so." Babson's Reports, a To- ronto-based advisory service, said in a recent Canadian In- vestment Letter that, after months of advising reduced holdings in common stocks, it now recommends "small pur- chases of high quality stocks which have weathered the de- cline well and a generally cautious preparation for grad- ual re-entry into the market." However, not all investors are convinced the worst is be- hind the market. Canada Trust says in a quarterly review that "contin- uing poor economic and .cor- porate news will likely miti- gate against any substantial improvement in equity val- ues. "Accordingly, we anticipate a pattern of intermittent ral- lies over the next several months but doubt that a solid market base may be formed until later in the year." Even some managers of in- stitutional portfolios who jumped .on the buying band- wagon are nervous. The manager of a large pen- sion fund said the answer to how sustained the stock market recovery will be de- pends on inflation. "If you think inflation has been tamed sufficiently so that we will get.an average of maybe seven per cent over the next five years, there is no doubt that this is the buying opportunity of all time. You just go out and buy ev- erything. "If, on the other hand, the average is going to be more like 10 per cent and upward, then the strength won't last very long. Personally, I want to see those lower inflation figures for awhile before I be- lieve it." Car sales up VANCOUVER (CP) British Leyland Motors Van- couver Ltd. reported Tuesday that car sales in its western region increased 119 per cent in the last quarter of 1974 over the same period in 1973. The company said in a news release- that 741 sportscar's and sedans were sold in British Columbia and Alberta in the final quarter of last year while 338 units were sold in the same period a year earlier.
