Markets. Japan upping its investment in equities and securities from 12% to 25% is material, but will they still have that sway. Thinks we are really in a post-central bank world. We'll have to wait for the next week or 2. Looking at all the different sectors and the different markets, what has really been noticeable in the last 2 months is that the areas with the strongest strength include US health, Canadian health, consumer Staples and utilities.

Markets. He was pleased to see Japan announcing they were ramping up their stimulus program. They were stagnant for so long that it make sense. There are risks that they are taking on debt, but it kick starts the economy, so it is a good thing. On the general market, he wouldn't be surprised to see things coming back up again. He is very bullish on the US. This recovery is very real. We are getting better job reports, housing is doing better, new car sales, etc. He has been positioning his clients on a stronger US$ for about a year. He has started to dip his toes back into energy.

Options Straddles? A straddle is where you really don't know which way the market is going to go, so you buy some Call options and some Put options at the same price. The idea is that as long as there is enough volatility to cover up the cost of the options ($2 on each side, and $4 in volatility, you are going to make money.) He likes to do straddles on an event driven basis. He doesn't want to put them on and hope for the market to be volatile, because they are a wasting asset. He wants a date where he knows there is something coming, such as earnings report, or a fed meeting, where he thinks there could be volatility, and will apply the options as close to that date as possible (maybe one week). You always have to remember that options are a wasting asset.

How far out would you go to buy a Put on a bank? Not very much. He Sells Calls on a bank because he wants to get the income from the banks. To buy Puts on a bank because he expects them to go down is a wasting asset. First of all, he would buy them a little bit out of the money to get better leverage, but wouldn't go too far out in terms of time because you pay too much and the chances of recovering your money diminish every week.

Markets.  Historically if you look at market corrections in October, they are always good buying opportunities.  Ebola has proved itself as to not be able to be airborne.  China is set for a soft landing.  What’s not to like about this.  For these reasons people, are all just buying in without a change in fundamentals.  So just go with it.  The TSX is all about oil.  Cheaper oil is better for the consumer, but we worry about the companies.  Oil is a real catalyst here.  Baytex came out with earnings today and said they were increasing production.

2014-10-30 N/A Paul Harris, CFA

Markets. Most of his clients tend to be balanced between equity and fixed income portfolios, so volatility is subdued because when the equity market went down, the bond market kind of rallied a little. They might have been down, but not as severely as other people. Also, bounced back very quickly. He had been expecting a pullback at some time, and he was comfortable buying in the pullback. There is a very strong case for equities relative to the debt market. Stocks have more room to run. In spite of interest rates and what the Fed is doing, etc., dividend yields and earning yields tell you that you need to be in the stock market. He prefers looking at Cdn markets 1st, and then to the US and Europe. Stays away from Asia and emerging markets.

Markets. There are some intraday reversals on Dow Transports, Russell 2000, etc.  Going higher earlier in the day and now dropping below yesterday's close. This is generally a bearish signal. He started buying 3-4 weeks ago because the Russell 2000 started moving up ahead of the S&P 500 and other bigger markets. This may suggest that the little rally may be coming to an end. He does not believe that is the reason. The US Fed announcement is coming up in about an hour he thinks the market is quite nervous about it. The probability is that they won't be as dovish as they have in the past. They'll see that the labour market is improving. He really believes they are going to start talking about some view to the economy healing. If so, that will be short term somewhat bearish for stocks, but over the longer term, a rising rate environment is actually, at least in its initial stages, positive for stocks. Still thinks this is a good time for investors to start wading in. Historically, November, is one of the strongest months on record, and typically you have increases of 6%-7% in that month. The best time to buy stocks is in the Nov-April time frame.

Oil. Oil is up a little bit today. It has been an interesting time in the energy complex. Goldman Sachs came out a few days ago saying we were headed to $75 oil. He is in the $85ish camp and thinks that is where the long term costs are. Oversupply is really not the case, but you can't argue that demand is running away. We are in a kind of middling range for oil and doesn't see us getting $100 or more in the immediate future, but he doesn't see it falling below $75.

Currency. Currently the Cdn$ is rallying against the US$. His overall view is that the US$ will continue to strengthen. It is clearly the strongest market globally. If you compare what has happened in Canada and the US, our real estate prices have continued to go up where theirs have gone through a retrenchment in real estate and prices fell by an average of 5%, across the country. Ultimately, you are better served in US$ terms and in US$ investments, because over time we are going to drift towards an $0.85 dollar in Canada.

Markets. Markets are born on pessimism, mature on optimism and die on euphoria is a quote from Sir John Templeton. If that is the case, he would say that we are not in any kind of euphoric stage, and for five years we have not been in that moment. We are still in too much skepticism since 2008. Still a lot of nervous money on the sidelines. The stronger US$ certainly feels like a trend for the time being. Looking around globally, you have the uncertainty in Europe, the question if abenomics for Japan will really take hold, emerging markets have gone through another disconnect, Brazil's election, Russia, etc. There are a lot of things going on that are making the US$ look very, very strong. This is something you want to take advantage of in portfolios. Austerity measures in Europe, combined with pretty tight monetary policy that are tight compared to what they should be, hasn't really spurred a lot of growth in Europe. Probably the biggest thing he is concerned with is if the US gets pulled down by the periphery. If they can hold in and lasso and bring back the rest of the laggards with them, then he thinks we are on to new highs. Before adding to new positions, wait to see what Janet Yellin has to say. If she decides to continue with QE, that could be taken very negatively by the markets. He has been very heavily weighted to the US.

Auto stocks? The problem with Ford (F-N) and General Motors (GM-N) is that they may be looking at 3%-5% year-over-year growth. Analysts don't see what the next move is in these 2 companies. You have to be very careful with this major change in gas and energy, which has caught a lot of people by surprise. The issue with Magna (MG-T) is their 40%-45% exposure to Europe.

Markets. October is typically the most volatile month of the year. Last Wednesday was just one of those days where it all came together and impacted at the same time. Right now we are moving into a time period where volatility tends to die down, but we are still going to get some. During this time period in September and October, he has largely been in cash. As of yesterday, he switched his portfolio to be fully invested in equities. Stocks are fairly valued now. Looking at a forward PE basis, there is nothing wrong with that. The “beats” last Friday were about 70%, which is good.

Gold. The seasonal period for gold has actually gone up in the last few years. It didn't work in 2014 and has actually come down. Chart shows gold is putting in a bottom. From a technical perspective, it actually looks like it has some support here.

High-yield corporate bonds? These will give you an equity component as well as an income component as compared to government bonds. These perform well when equities tend to perform well. The seasonal period for these is basically from October to the beginning of January.
