5 Canadian Penny Stocks Set to Get a Boost From the Falling Oil Price

These Canadian penny stocks may witness upward trending prices following repeated downward pressure from oil, and thus a depreciating Canadian dollar

SmallCapPower | May 6, 2016: After April’s record gains, global oil prices have started to revert back to lows near US$40 a barrel. Despite the recent relief, analyst sentiment on the commodity is still bearish and well below current price levels. This decline will negatively affect the Loonie’s strength, and thus have an impact on the nation’s exporting and importing sectors. Canadian penny stocks involved in manufacturing and in other non-energy exporting sectors will reap the benefits from the fall in oil, as domestic prices become relatively cheaper following the depreciation of the Canadian dollar. Investors should carefully examine the penny stocks on our list today, which have high exposure to international markets.
