  • Investors saving for retirement could consider TSX bluechip stocks
  • Canada's main equity index plunged over 12 per cent in 2022
  • Stocks of Telus zoomed by almost five per cent in nine months

Investors looking for a financially healthy retirement life could consider TSX bluechip stocks like Manulife (TSX: MFC), Telus (TSX: T), Barrick (TSX: ABX) etc, which are currently priced under C$ 30, for their RRSP accounts.

Canada's main equity index plunged by over 12 per cent in 2022 amid market uncertainty resulting from economic factors, including Consumer Price Index (CPI) growth and policy rate measures to control price pressure. On Wednesday, June 13, Canada's top lender pushed its interest rates up by one per cent to tackle inflationary challenges as the nation's CPI rose 7.7 per cent in May 2022.

As these factors could continue to impact investors’ behaviour and stock markets in the short run, RRSP investors could look at some relatively robust TSX stocks that can outlive such economic challenges and offer value in the long horizon. Let us look at five such TSX bluechip stocks.

MFC stock slipped by nearly seven per cent in 52 weeks. As per Refinitiv data, Manulife stock breached its support levels and clocked a 52-week low of C$ 21.28 on June 23. MFC reportedly recorded a Relative Strength Index (RSI) of 48.38 (near moderate level) on July 13.

2.     Telus Corporation (TSX: T)

Telus announced to buy LifeWorks (TSX: LWRK) in a deal of C$ 2.3 billion in mid-June. With this deal, the 5G internet provider aims to grow its healthcare solutions.
