It has a reasonable correlation to the economy.  He believes the volatility will be higher.  It will probably go back to the bottom of its recent range around $38.  Then it might be a good time to get it.

2016-04-14 BUY on WEAKNESS David Cockfield

Took his profits on this, but still owns Brookfield Properties. He likes the Brookfield group in general. They are very smart, heads up investors. Had felt this one had got to a price range where it was going to be stuck for a while. If it sold off significantly, he would probably add it back into his portfolio. (See Top Picks.)

2016-04-13 COMMENT Cameron Hurst

Really likes this company. With this, you are buying a portfolio of assets in different business lines that are very well diversified. They have proven to be quite good in managing their business. The last year has been a little more volatile. Some of their oil/gas assets have been a little bit tricky. History has shown that management has great execution. The stock is consolidating nicely. As a core holding in your portfolio, it shouldn’t really hurt you, and it gets you a nice long term appreciation.

2016-04-12 TOP PICK David Baskin

Barron’s magazine slagged the company and the stock went down. The rap against management is that it owns a lot of non-public assets and the reporter looked at how they were valuing these assets. Brookfield is forced to mark these assets to market every year because of the way international financing works. Every time the company has sold one of these assets, they have sold it for more than what they have said it was worth. This is a fabulous company with billions of dollars under management for institutional investors, that are on its balance sheets. Dividend yield of 1.5%.

2016-04-11 COMMENT James Telfser

There are a lot of question marks about their balance sheet. A very well-run company and have a lot of great assets. When you start questioning their accounting on how they account for some of these assets, you have to do a little bit more homework than usual. If you can’t figure it out, maybe there is a cleaner story that you can invest in that doesn’t have so much noise around the accounting.

2016-04-04 COMMENT John Zechner

Has dropped recently. There was an article in Barron’s on the weekend that was questioning their accounting. This has always been more asset based accounting in valuation, and the earnings are the value of your assets, as opposed to cash generation. He prefers cash generation. He is not comfortable with their growth.

2016-03-28 WATCH Michael Sprung

Longer term this is a company he likes.  He has always admired them.  Management has done an amazing job.  He prefers this to some of the subsequent parts, even if they sell at a discount to NAV.  Recently when it sold off it was quite an opportunity.  They will participate in a lot of this infrastructure building.  He may initiate a position in it later this year, but it is a little rich now.

2016-03-02 BUY David Baskin

Among the most impressive companies in Canada. Management is absolutely world-class. Forward-looking, very smart and strategic in terms of assets there are acquiring, with a very wide view. Have tremendous resources at their disposal. Interestingly the stock was downgraded by a US broker today. Feels the stock has an inherent value of around $50-$55, and is an absolute must hold for every investor.

2016-02-25 BUY Mohsin Bashir

It is the poster child business for a dividend growth portfolio.  They have a habit of growing the dividend.  They just announced purchase of a US property.  They have a high degree of discipline in their quality management.  Look to enter below $40.

2016-02-17 COMMENT Paul Gardner, CFA

Preferred R. Preferred market was terrible last year, down 30% minimum. This is not a fixed income product, but an enhanced equity instrument. There is just as much risk of rates going lower than higher. This is a hybrid of an equity instrument.

2016-02-11 COMMENT Paul Harris, CFA

Likes that the vast majority of management gets paid in shares. From an NAV point of view, he sees it as around $45, or even a little higher. Very good at buying assets at the right time and selling assets when they think they are mature.

A really good name. Trying to form a base at around the current level. These guys are really good at being alternative asset managers. Watch for levels for finding support. Make sure it holds the level where it is at and doesn’t go lower.

2016-02-03 BUY Derek Warren

His largest holding and he likes it a lot. For many years this has been on a tear. Had a correction, which is rare for them. Well capitalized, very smart and able to take advantage of people in distress. This is the kind of people you want to invest in for the long time. When it dips, you buy more and just wait out the cycle.

He sold it to buy TCN-T, and then sold that.  He would not own or hold this sector right now.

2016-02-01 SELL Hank Cunningham

April 9, 2019 bond with a rate of 3.95%. Unlikely you can sell this at a higher price than what it is at now, because it is rolling down the yield curve and getting close to maturity. These bonds are very liquid and you can sell them at any time, and then pick up another one that will mature in 2 or 3 years. He would not hold this bond to maturity.
