2017-01-13 COMMENT Daniel Straus

ETFs. The ETF market is running at about $114 billion in Canada, and well over $2 trillion in the US. 2016 was a record year for growth in both countries. This is coming from all directions at once, institutional clients, retail advisors, etc.

2017-01-13 COMMENT Daniel Straus

A geographical proportion ETF for an RRSP? You want to put in those kinds of ETF’s that deliver income or dividend that is taxed the most if it were outside the RRSP. That would mostly be bonds, or international equities. The breakout between asset allocation is the heart of the main question of investing. You really need to begin there before picking out your ETF for each asset class. The 5 asset classes would be a 3rd Canadian equity, a 3rd US equity, a 3rd international equity, some fixed income and cash.

2017-01-13 COMMENT Daniel Straus

Bonds? There are a lot of reasons to question why you should be in the bond market at all. Investors shouldn’t lose sight of the reason bonds are in a portfolio. They are the ultimate cushion in case there is a very steep market drop. A “cash account” exposes you to one issuer, such as the bank where your money is deposited. However, cash may be more tax efficient. It is hard for bonds to compete with a high interest savings account these days.

Market. Feels investors are really looking for clues from Donald Trump for timing, magnitude and details surrounding some of the policies that he has talked about, and we didn’t see a lot of that. Thinks the trend for corporate tax reform, tax cuts, infrastructure spending, deregulation will continue, and will feed into those sectors that are in the cyclicals, and not into the more defensive types of names. Given the massive run up since the election, it is very, very possible there will be a pause or consolidation in the market. If interest rates move too quickly, that could pose some anxiety in the market. We also need to see some very sustainable strong corporate earnings. If there are some policy disappointments or some excessive protectionist measures that is taken by Trump, that could also deflate some of the market moves. Thinks value will outperform growth once again this year, so value is a theme he is holding onto. Financials fall into both the cyclical and value themes after having been beaten up for so many years.

Markets.  Earnings are expected to grow at a crisp clip this year.  The S&P has not been that cheap for quite some time, but we have gone through an earnings recession ending half way through last year.  Now earnings are going to grow into multiples.  17.5 times earnings will not be so high later.  Multiples may be able to contract sooner in this year.  The Santa Clause Rally that was called the Trump Rally happened when Trump had not addressed details of process regarding his initiatives.  Now markets are taking a breather, waiting for this.  Growth will translate into dividend growth this year.

Gold.  He would not handicap gold to just performing in 2017.  It has been in decline for several years, but now you have the opportunity for gold to be in the sweet spot.  People might get scared of what markets are going to do, or people may believe there really is inflationary pressure in the system.

2017-01-12 COMMENT Mohsin Bashir

Why is oil going up and some oil stocks going down?  Sometimes it is the balance sheet of the company that is driving the stock price.  The crude market itself may not be enough to drive the company.  People may be looking at infrastructure growth and so on.  Oil price is only one component for the overall stock price.

Gold – Should it be in the portfolio?  Yes.  It is an inflation hedge.  This was a non-issue for years.  Now you are seeing wage inflation and general inflation is getting into the system.  Gold can hedge against these pressures.  AEM-T has probably one of the best management teams out there.  They may have the benefit of the doubt already, but G-T probably has an opportunity to get a return above that from just gold.  Gold will peak in about 1.5 year’s time.

If you are not 100% certain that one of two stocks in a sector is better than the other then get half of both positions and think of them as one position.  After a couple of months you may realize that the behavior of the two stocks are different.  One may have more catalysts or is recognized more and then you may decide to go with the winner from there.

Market. The VIX is still at record lows, so he thinks the current market condition is just a little bit of steam coming off. He’s been getting much more aggressive in his portfolios, and his cash standing is virtually at zero now. Was starting to see positive data on corporate profit, S&P 500 earnings and PMI data before Trump won the election, and it was nice to see that cloud of uncertainty removed. Fully expects some volatility around the inauguration, but is staying Long throughout that.

2017-01-11 N/A Christine Poole

Market. The P/E ratio for the S&P 500 is at about 17X 2017 estimated earnings, above the long-term historical averages of 14X or 15X. Some strategists have upwardly revised numbers for this year on the premise that Trump is able to get through his corporate tax cuts, from 35% down to 15%. For every 1% cut, it adds about $1.80 to earnings, so if he even does 5% and brings it to 20%, that could potentially add $20 to 2017 earnings. We do need the profit growth to come through. Right now, the expectation for the 4th quarter earnings is that they are going to grow about 4.5% year-over-year. Usually they surprise to the upside because companies are cautious. We should have less headwinds with energy.

Market.Earnings season starts in earnest very soon, and all indications are that things should be pretty good. We have seen a pretty good rally since the election. The rally is justified, it’s not just a flash in the pan. We are on the cusp of a legitimate regime change in the markets whereby the baton is being handed from the monetary authorities back to the government. With Republicans now firmly in control of the government, they are very likely to run a pro-growth agenda led by tax cuts, both personal and corporate, probably rounded out by some infrastructure spending later on, and perhaps some tax repatriation holidays.

2017-01-11 COMMENT Brian Madden

Rate resets?A lot of investors are going to be wrestling with the need for income as people are aging. The preferred share market is an asset class that is taxed favourably. It is not quite the same risk exposure as government bonds, and there is more volatility and can go wrong if rates fall. Rates are not likely to fall. Rate resets are by large trading at 4.5%-5%. He likes this asset class.

Investment for a TFSA account?He wouldn’t be put off by Canadian banks being at all-time highs. They are tremendous shareholder value creators, and earn about 14%-15% ROE. They are steady and consistent businesses that tend to grow earnings most years. Most have medium term earnings growth targets in the 7%-10% range. Pretty good governance businesses and pay out pretty good dividend yields. He likes Royal Bank (RY-T), Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS-T) and Toronto Dominion (TD-T).

2017-01-10 N/A Bruce Tatters

Market. Since the Trump election, there has been a lot of optimism about policy change happening, both in a tax and a regulatory front. We are now at a digestion stage. There is a lot of Senate confirmations on his cabinet in the next few days. This is followed by his inauguration, and analysts are waiting for the change to happen. This is a healthy. He tries to always populate his portfolios with a basket of the best reward returns. When cyclicals shift, whether it is materials, energy, etc., it can be years of a changeover. Cycles happen because of over investment and supply. When things get really bad in multiple years, there is under investment and supply. These can be longer cycles.
