Looking at those stocks listed only on the TSX, the exchange had 60 per cent of volume. Alpha handled 19 per cent, Chi-X handled 11.7 per cent and the other ATSs had the remaining 9.3 per cent.

The TMX Group continued to advertise the fine companies listed on its exchanges last week, releasing the 2013 TSX-V 50. The TSX-V says it selected these 50 companies based on market-capitalization growth, share-price appreciation, trading volume and analyst coverage. The highest ranked company overall is Africa Oil Corp. After finding oil in Kenya last spring, the company's market cap climbed to $2.48-billion, up from $395-million at the beginning of the year, as the stock hit a high of $11.35 in May, 2012, up from $1.81 in February. During that time the stock traded an average of 2.5 million shares a day. Eighteen analysts are covering the stock.

Hopefully the large zombie army of smelly companies will be off the board before the NHL training camp opens later this year. At least the coffee bars and eateries are no longer clogged with mewling zombies as they tend to stay home or barricaded in their offices - not answering their phones and hiding from their landlords.
