The S&P/TSX Index bounced back on February 12, gaining 200 points. The TSX has still fallen 5.9% in 2018 thus far, which leaves investors with some questions in mid-February. Naturally, the biggest question is whether or not this is a buy-low opportunity or a pause in what could be a broader correction as markets respond to rising interest rates.
Today, we will look at four stocks that can make great additions to your Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA) during this period. The stocks below offer the potential for bounce-back capital appreciation after a dip, and all can generate income for your portfolio.

In the third quarter of 2017, Snc-Lavalin posted adjusted net income of $88.6 million, or $0.51 per diluted share, compared to $24.4 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, in Q3 2016. The company was dealt some good news in February, as it emerged the winner with its $6.3 billion bid for a Montreal rail project that will connect the city to its suburbs and international airport.
