Markets. Built up a fair amount of cash leading to the correction and has now put some of this to work. Had taken some of his cues from the market on the US treasury side. Also, just following the technicals in the market, he saw a couple of big rallies into the close in the US, and it looked like the market wanted to go a little bit. Also, there was a positive in the number of people being fired in the US. It was more of a tactical decision where he thought the market had overshot on the down side. Has been trimming some of those positions in the last couple of days. Doesn't think we are going to get back to new highs. We have come a long way off from the bottom, so it is prudent to take some money off the table, especially the way the oil price has been struggling.

Markets. Since the 2nd world war, most of the economies and stock markets have followed a very similar pattern. We come out of a slow period, the economy picks up, we start getting inflationary pressures, the Central Bank starts raising interest rates to dampen it and everything slows down. That is the cycle. However, in the last 5-6 years, we really haven't seen really high levels of growth coming out of the last trough of 2008-2009. The likelihood of a Central Bank going to raise interest rates to slow down growth, is very, very low. Doesn't think we are going to get a big correction in the stock market. The price of oil and the price of copper tell you there is not a lot of growth out there. Thinks we are going to be in a muddle along economy. In this correction we are going through, we are pretty much there. Feels we are going to be in a stable and soon to be rising market. Lower oil prices is like a huge tax windfall and very positive for the economy. Feels the next 3-6 months for the stock market are going to be good. We tend to get our corrections in September and October, and then we get pretty good markets from the end of October through until probably May.

Energy. We have been in this channel of somewhere between $80 and $110 range in the last 5 to 7 years. With fracing technology will we actually start setting a new lower level to that range? Most of the feedback he has heard from oil/gas analysts is that the costs of getting oil out of the ground has not changed that much. As a consequence, we are probably going to steady somewhere around $80 as a lower limit. If we shoot through $80 and into the $70's for a few months, supply is going to pulled back quite quickly. Thinks oil does become quite interesting here in the low $80's. Don't be a seller of oil stocks. Look to pick up bargains as we bounce along that $80 mark. Expect that in 18 months we will be back over $95.

Lifecos or Canadian Banks? He still likes the banks better. They seem to have a lot more latitude in terms of growth. Likes their quality of management, although Manulife (MFC-T) would be on a par. If he had to choose one bank, it would be Toronto Dominion (TD-T), but all the Canadian banks are good right now.

Markets.  We were incredibly oversold and so we are having a rally now.  Interest rates have collapsed this year from 3.0% to 2.2% this year.  It is worse for finding yield in fixed income so you have to go back into the stock market.  We really saw the hit in the mid-cap, retail investor stocks.  Oil came off also so oil stocks should be looked at.

Markets. To really understand what has happened, you have to isolate what brought this market down. There were a lot of contributing factors such as Ebola, terrible events in Ottawa, but the key is understanding where Europe is going. There were encouraging data points out of Europe today and a big market rally, which was not surprising. If you can see more data points like that on its own, he thinks you have the next leg up of this bull market. Unfortunately. today is just one data point. You need more before you can be sure. Also, markets can go higher if investors become confident enough that the ECB has investors back. The ECB is mostly job owning. It might even be beyond the ECB at this point, and requires the involvement of Germany and a fiscal stimulus. This is what has markets so worried. If you can see PMI's rising in Europe like they did today, stocks look really good. Stocks do want to go higher and the Bulls do want to run, but you definitely need Europe. It is typical that there was the retracement we had today, but you wouldn't buy just based on this snap back. You would buy if you are seeing a change. If you see the weak data points that we saw in September in Europe as just a summer slowdown, and will be actually snapping back on their own, it doesn't matter that they are feeble. What investors need to see is that it is trending in the right direction. This is really a “wait and see” to see who does carry the next leg. It really does depend on Europe.

Banks or oil companies for sustainability of dividends? First of all, payout ratios on the banks are between 40% and 50%. He doesn't know if the Canadian bank has ever cut its dividend. You have the highest assurance of quality in banks. Energy names are in the penalty box with an uncertainty and a question mark around oil. Capital wants to go somewhere. If investors are not looking at oil and at telecom stocks, they're going to go to bank stocks.

Markets. Had expected there would be some weakness going into September/October. However, it was a lot more severe than what he was expecting. As a result there has been some technical damage done to the markets, and he wants to see that the support is held in a number of different areas. If not, then he will probably become more defensive in his portfolios. Technically he is watching both the 50 week moving average and the MACD indicator crossing the zero line for the TSX. When the MACD crosses down below the zero line, this is normally followed by more significant down side. If he doesn’t see that breakdown, he’ll probably be in a position where he wants to add back exposure to his portfolios. If he did see that breakdown, he would probably take more defensive action and Sell down. Typically when heading into recession, oil and interest-rate indicators give signs of an economic rollover. Instead of oil spiking up over 80% in a 12 month period, it has gone the other way and is actually a big stimulus to the consumer. At the same time, the spread on interest rates between Short and Long is still very wide. This is a little surprising, and that is why he is concerned about what might be ahead for the markets.

2014-10-21 N/A Jerome Hass

Markets. He always believes in having structure in place in order to be prepared for any market conditions. Having Shorts in place as a form of insurance, is something he believes in. Up to the end of August, markets were up 12% and everybody was happy. When you put Shorts in place, it is actually a drag on performance. It is not until you get to a place like Sept/Oct when the market starts to head south, that you all of a sudden realize the value of having insurance. He uses Shorts for hedging purposes as well. If he has a Long position, he wants to Pair that with a Short position. What people sometimes miss in Pair trading is the relationship between the 2 stocks. You can have a Long and Short position, and both of them can go down and you can still make money, as long as your Short goes down more than your Long. Conversely you can do this in up markets as well. He tries to ignore the day to day movement of the Market itself.

2014-10-21 N/A John Zechner

Markets. He is calling this V bottom snap back a technical bounce, and we could see lower lows. The TSX dropped all the way from $15,500 to $13,800 and he expects we will recover some of that. Feels the correction is far from over. There are some issues out there to deal with. The slowing growth in Europe, some of the slower numbers we have seen in the US and yet you still have the potential for a US rate rise. China numbers are not blow away anymore. Earnings are not blowing anybody away. He wants everyone to stop saying “let’s buy the dips”.

Markets.  Every time there is a Monday holiday we seem to get some market volatility.  S&P got down 9.4% and he was looking for 10, so we saw that.  16-17% of the S&P has reported already and he gives it a B+ rating.  IBM missed big, but when looking at various sectors, the change in earnings have been actually pretty good and in fact a bit better than expected by about 2-3% going into the quarter.  Revenue has been better than expected except for IBM and they are pointing to currency problems.  IBM may be a specific story.  We’ve seen some pretty good moves in financial stocks in the US after earnings reports.  He thinks it is a 70% chance it is a market bottom for now.  It may be a challenge in 2015 as the FED tries to ‘remove accommodation’.

From a 3-5 year perspective he likes oil and gas.  He was looking for pullback and we got it.  Looking out at the dividends from the energy sector, relative to where the banks are, he likes the dividend in the energy sector much better than the banks for the next 3-5 years.  There is talk, though, in the market where Saudi Arabia are going to be complacent in the energy price and this will punish Russia.  The spike below $80 in oil is probably the bottom and certainly in the low end of the range.  Below $75 makes no sense because of cost of production.

Gold.  A number of months ago he identified a double bottom.  We tested those.  But every rally has gone to lower highs.  The now triple bottom is still vulnerable.  Gold is not responding to recent S&P lows the way it should.  Wait for panic selling and then buy in for the next decade.  The lows of last year have to be taken out and then there has to be panic selling.

US Dollar and portfolio adjustment.  Japan needs to continue to weaken their currency.  Euro may go to parity.  US dollar staying strong may be a drag on US earnings so you may want to change your portfolio as currencies weaken.

Educational Segment.  Volatility and the Bond Market.  In his sleep at night portfolio he looked for this correction.  Bond markets have done very well.  With 3 ETFs you can buy the entire world of fixed income.  He saw a 10 point spike in their charts.  Hedged fund portfolios are forced to come and buy fixed income securities.  He looked at the spread between VIX futures.  Wednesday of last week we saw the spike in the VIX spot and the bottoming of the S&P.  What he did was to get out of a lot of fixed income and rolled it into equities while they were so low and bonds were so high.
