2014-10-14 N/A Must be logged in to use chart A Commentary A Comment -- General Comments From an Expert

Markets. About a year and a half ago, he had a theme on the US$ that he has been banging the drum on. 2 weeks ago people woke up and said they wanted to be long US$’s. That has had huge implications. As a model price guy, the tectonic plates under the financial markets are moving. All over the world, people are hitting the Sell button in whatever currency, including the Cdn$, and getting into US$. This is why there is such a big impact in commodity prices, especially oil. Everyone’s secular view going forward is that the US$ wins at the end of the day, certainly over the next 5-7 years. All we are seeing are the ramifications of that risk being priced. Assets are being re-priced for that eventuality. He feels that there is a re-pricing of commodity prices. If the S&P 500 were to come down to $1760, that would be a tremendous buying opportunity for everyone interested in US stocks and US assets.

2 ETFs that you could trade the US$ in? You could buy the unhedged versions of the SPYDERs. He is inclined to this. You just Buy it and hold for about 7 years, and you should do well.

2014-10-14 TOP PICK Must be logged in to use chart ABT-N Abbott Labs

2014-10-14 BUY on WEAKNESS Must be logged in to use chart ADM-N Archer Daniels Midland Company

His model price is $50.41, a 13% upside. The risk here would be that it could fall back to the $41.50 level if the markets sell off any more. He would be a buyer at that level. 2% dividend yield.

2014-10-14 WAIT Must be logged in to use chart BXE-T Bellatrix Exploration Ltd.

This is kind of small for him. Stock has been going down a lot. He would wait to see a bottom at around the current price. His model price is $18.68. He suspects that all the energy stocks will be coming down materially because earnings estimates will be a lot lower in a week or 2. If it went above $6.37, he would be interested in putting on a trade. This is not where the action is. The action is in the big caps, which is where he would go.

2014-10-14 DON'T BUY Must be logged in to use chart CBI-N Chicago Bridge & Iron Co.

There have been “soft whispers” of accounting impropriety. His model price is $59.08, a 23% upside. If this market comes under pressure again, $41 is a distinct possibility. He would like to see this cheaper.

2014-10-14 BUY on WEAKNESS Must be logged in to use chart CIX-T CI Financial Corp

CI Financial (CIX-T) or Power Corp (POW-T)? If this had a pullback to $25.14, where it typically trades in terms of valuation, he would be all over this. Yield of 3.8%. His model price is $44, so it looks quite attractive.

2014-10-14 COMMENT Must be logged in to use chart CNR-T Canadian National R.R.

Rails are trading substantially above where they usually trade. Feels this stock will come back to $62.46. The model price is $77.87. Irrespective, this has to come back to their structural line of $62.46.

2014-10-14 COMMENT Must be logged in to use chart CPG-T Crescent Point Energy Corp

Recently did a stock issue, so his figures do not include this. He would like to see the new balance sheet when it comes in. Not a fan of this. This is the 1st time in 4-5 years that it is actually trading below his model price calculation. Thinks this is on its way down to $32.

(A Top Pick Oct 15/13. Down 2.99%.) He has a 34% upside with his model price of $150.84. These stocks could come down, but he sees this as a buying opportunity going forward.

2014-10-14 COMMENT Must be logged in to use chart DOW-N Dow Chemical

This is a cyclical, so if we are in a global slowdown, it is very hard to know where this one is going to go. The last 3 weeks has been brutal on this stock. He would like to see it trade above $46.82 before he put any money into it. His model prices $40.34, a negative 10%.

2014-10-14 DON'T BUY Must be logged in to use chart GE-N General Electric

His model price is $19.80 a negative 17%. He has been a bear on the stock since the $60 level. Doesn’t like what they are doing. There are one or 2 positives. Starting to spin off their GE Capital from their portfolio, but they should be doing a lot more.

2014-10-14 WATCH Must be logged in to use chart HBM-T Hudbay Minerals Inc.

His model price is $12.81. If it went above his green line of $9.74, he would take a flyer on it. The material space has been beat up, and he has been picking away at golds.

2014-10-14 WATCH Must be logged in to use chart KMB-N Kimberly Clark

Has a model price of $93.12, a negative 12%. If there was to be any pullback, certainly to the $84 level, he would be a Buyer. You could buy half a position now and hope for cheaper prices to get the balance.

2014-10-14 PAST TOP PICK Must be logged in to use chart MET-N Metlife

(A Top Pick Oct 15/13. Up 3.83%.) He sees lower interest rates on the horizon. It is trading below his last fundamental line of $55.54 so he would only recommend this if it traded above that mark.
