**As of close of Sep. 21, 2017
***In Canadian dollars
Dividends received since last update: none.
Gain/loss is calculated by comparing market value (Sep. 21) with book value (which varies according to purchase date).
For U.S. companies, figures are converted to Canadian dollars at exchange rates that vary according to the date of purchase.
As a result, the gain/loss percentage is a calculation that factors in foreign-exchange fluctuations as well as movement in the share price.
