O Canada

Our allies across the northern border are doing just fine, thank you. REITs and Public companies raised $3 billion in 2009, with 50% raised in the 4th quarter. The Canadian Banks escaped the debacle that setback the US banking system, so credit is flowing—relatively–more freely. Fundamentals remain strong in portfolios across most asset classes.

Overall, a good report card.
