Markets. Canadian stock market investors haven’t fully digested the impact of the commodity rout. There is a lot of reason for caution, but there is a lot of reason for optimism as well. For instance, in the US, the earnings ratios outside of energy are looking a little attractive. In Canada, with oil hitting $50 for the 1st time in 7 months, that is an encouraging sign.

2016-05-26 COMMENT Daniel Straus

Bull ETF’s? These are leveraged products and will give you 2X the performance of an underlying index, such as crude oil futures, but will do it for only one day, and then they reset that leverage. For the next trading day, they will again give you 2X that performance. Because of the daily resetting of the leverage, it is not like taking out margins and doubling your exposure to a stock or an index. You are resetting your leverage every day which introduces an element called past dependence to the trade. If you hold for more than one day or a month, that may be too long and not in line with your expectations. He recommends these for short term Holds only.

Dividends and capital growth for the top 5 Canadian banks going forward? Historically Canadian banks have been one of the best performing asset classes of all time. There has been some concern that perhaps with lower interest rates and defaults in the oil patch, they might be a worse investment. Bank of Montréal (BMO-T) came out with pretty good earnings today and raised their dividend by 2%. Feels the banks are very, very solid. Not sure he would be buying at this time, but would continue holding them.

2016-05-25 COMMENT Michael Decter

Lithium? He wasn’t courageous enough to plunge into the lithium bubble. This is the new poster child for a commodity that is going to be in batteries. If Tesla builds all those cars that they have taken deposits on, and if lithium turns out to be the magic battery component, then there may be growth in lithium. The problem is the same as when you have a gold or copper bubble, literally dozens or hundreds of firms materialize and you don’t know which ones actually own lithium or just have an idea of it. If you own some and you have had a good run, at least take your original investment off the table.

Markets.  We have only so much patience.  The market broke the 2000 highs in the beginning of 2013 and has chipped itself sideways since then.  Every 3 years we get a really big decline.  Despite the fact we are near highs, the S&P short interest is at all time highs.  There is tremendous bearishness yet he sees from his models that we have healthy markets.  He thinks there are a lot of people on the wrong foot on this market.  This is a great contrarian indicator. After a 2/3rd decline in energy we are likely to have a 50% upside.

Markets. There is a lot of free credit. Central banks globally have opened up the taps, and as a result there is a lot of mispriced securities. He is not sure what the end result will be. The question is if this is justified at this time. We will only find out the answer in the future. It is good to be prudent in this environment. He likes to invest in companies that don’t have input variables where there is no control or a high degree of predictability on.

2016-05-24 COMMENT Andrey Omelchak

Lithium stocks? There is a lot of talk as to whether lithium is the next big thing or not, and whether or not electric cars will be the major type of cars manufactured, especially in North America. Storage of energy is a big problem, and you need lithium to do that. It is pretty safe to say that lithium demand will increase going forward. Feels we are in the early innings. There are not too many global providers of lithium. You really have to pick your spot.

Markets. It continues to be the macro picture that drives momentum and sentiment, and it all seems to be stemming from the US Federal Reserve and expectations about when are they going to raise rates. There are a lot of implications for the US$ versus the rest of the basket. We have seen huge moves at the end of last year, and then year to date a reversal of a lot of that. Because the dollar is tied to commodities, there have been big runs in a lot of the commodity names. A very different picture year-to-date in the Canadian market than anywhere else globally. Whenever she gets macro noise that is taking the markets around, she tries to look for where opportunities are. The biggest thing is, will interest rates remain low enough for valuations to continue to make sense. She thinks they will. Doesn’t expect anybody will be in a rush to raise rates. Beyond that, what really drives things, is individual securities. Valuations are at bit higher than normal because of the low rate environment. The 2nd piece is earnings, and when she looks at this we are no longer in structural, so 1 is the aging population and 2 is the debt, and we are no longer in a situation where the entire economy is growing. She has been advocating that it is going to be really difficult to do well in the market going forward with a passive approach, because the 2 things you need to do well is 1) valuations coming off lows or 2) broad-based economic growth. It is going to be more and more important in the high valuation/low growth world to really pick your spots with a portfolio that is more focused than broad market based.

Market. Feels the US bull market is getting mature, and you have to be a little more selective, but there are spots that are working. Something interesting that is playing out right now is that there are currently significant potential negative outcomes that people are fussing and worrying about. Donald Trump has been sabre rattling like crazy in a horrible and corrosive campaign. That is very destabilizing for markets. If he becomes US president, he has no experience, no political pedigree, and doesn’t know how to make Washington work, which is a bit nerve-racking. Markets feed off certainty better than uncertainty, predictability better than the opposite. He doesn’t think it will ultimately happen.

Markets. The uncertainty in the market is going to be with us right through to the end of the year. The biggest unknown is the Central Banks and how much of a mess have they really created. He has been on the negative side, not believing that the experiment would work. Because of that, there are a lot of really smart people on Wall Street preparing themselves by buying insurance against a negative outcome of their actions. The best protection for that is gold. The demand for gold is continuing to increase, and on top of that the price is being kept down by what he thinks is a little bit of counterfeit on the futures market. Right now we have 500 contracts that are paper versus one actual insurance policy. That is not going to last. The real demand will continue to pick up going forward. If the central banks have lost control, as he thinks, they won’t be able to raise rates and are going to have to play the negative rate environment. For Canadian investors it is important to understand that our government has sold all of its gold. The Cdn$ is going to be in a negative unwinding of this. He particularly recommends that Canadian clients hedge themselves by allocating some of their investment assets into gold.

Markets.  The question is if the Fed will raise interest rates more than once this year.  The Fed increase is given.  The outcome is that there is a lot of risk out there.  The emerging markets have sold off and the US$ has had an impact in Brazil, Argentina and Mexico.  It is hard to find bright spots.  Should you be putting all your eggs into the TSX or the S&P?  The best way to move forward is to focus on value and not be over weighted in any commodity sector.  He is a bottom up investor and will hold cash if he doesn’t find anything to buy.  Residential real estate can be a lousy investment.  You have to pay the right price for it.

Market. Markets are showing a sign of fatigue after bouncing off the lows of January and February. There was a very sharp rally from January and February bouncing off the 2,100 level on the S&P 500. $14,000 seems to be an overhead resistance for the TSX. The S&P and TSX are trading at around 17-18 times forward earnings. That is a premium to a 10-year average of 14-15 times. We are going to slow down a bit and be range bound, being a little bit bumpy going forward. The earnings picture on the corporate side hasn’t been very good. There are concerns about global economic growth and geopolitical tensions, whether about the UK or things happening in Venezuela. We have a very uneasy US political backdrop as well. There is also the timing of the US Federal Reserve interest rate. He is about 12% in cash. When investing now, you want to be in the high quality, more defensive areas, lower beta type of stock, and that can include consumer staples, utilities, healthcare or telecom. Those types of names tend to be a little more predictable and reliable.

2016-05-19 COMMENT Stan Wong

US banks. Rising interest rates will represent improved profits through higher net interest margins for US banks. The banks haven’t really participated in the rally we have seen since January/February, which is troublesome for the overall market. They represent some decent values, but there is some concern about where the economy interest rates are going. The sector has moved above the 200 day moving average, which is positive.

2016-05-18 N/A Steve Belisle

Market. He is looking at a stock market environment where uncertainty remains elevated. The Canadian and US markets have rebounded quite a bit from the lows of February. The US earning season for Q1 was a little lacklustre, and guidance was a little disappointing. At the same time, you have the market back to its valuation peak at 17X for the S&P 500. Even if you adjust for currency, the results were a little lacklustre. Looking at the current EPS consensus for 2016, it is back at the same level as 2015. He is looking for companies that are offering the best of both worlds, a decent dividend and the prospect of decent growth, but where the company’s business prospect and growth is not influenced by the macro environment. That gives him more visibility and more comfort.
