Markets.  There are all kinds of ETFs all over the world based on the RAFFI index for fundamentals.  People aren’t paying enough attention to the demographics in the world.  They favour emerging markets for growth in the world over the next number of years.  However, the demographics in China have the same problems as we do with an aging workforce.  He prefers Indonesia, Malaysia, and India – the second tier of emerging markets where we will see tremendous growth.

Educational Segment.  He has a very curious appetite and always wants to know why.  He has always felt that asset allocation and diversification must be the cornerstones of your portfolio.  ETFs make it very easy and eloquent to put together portfolios.  The bond market has underperformed the stock market by about 35% since 2009.  But when the TSX fell between 2011 and 2012, the ratio actually went up about 20%.  The bond market is at the same place it was the last time the TSX had a bottom in 2011.  So maybe it is time to rebalance once again.

Oil Stocks? Caller sold all his.  The long term outlook is moderate at best.  You should not sell everything, but raise some cash if you are at the upper end of the range.  The sector is not overvalued because it was undervalued for years.  He does not like the sector right now.  To exit, you should sell a little at a time and see if it keeps going higher instead.

Latin America.  Thinks we have some challenges in Latin America for the next few years.  There will probably be a time in the future to step in in a big way.  Maybe in the next year or two.

Sell in May and Go Away.  It is effective 60-65% of the time, however, we don’t know ahead of time if this is a year when it will work and we couldn’t possibly.  If we look at fundamentals and how long since a 10% percent correction, he thinks it might be coming now.  Also, if you look at year 2 of a presidential cycle, it would seem this could be a weak summer.  Maybe now ‘Sell in May…’ is 80% likely to apply.

2014-04-21 BUY Must be logged in to use chart CBO-T iShares 1-5 yr Ladder Corp Bond ETF

Based on Bank of Canada statements, we are probably not going to see an interest rate hike in the next 12 months, but it is also about how the US handles the next year.  Once the Fed really pulls back on QE, the economy will falter and interest rates won’t go up there either.  This one is a fine holding.  Don’t worry about the underlying volume, as long as it trades with a penny or two spread.

Moving from Venture to TSX.  This means the company is growing, which is a good thing.  If they get included in the broad index them more analysts cover it and so a potential for broader ownership.  Basically this move is a good thing.

They were in a massive growth phase for a longtime, while they were opening stores and sales were growing.  Sales growth has slowed.  The market is not willing to pay the multiple that it was.  A retailer trades on earnings per share.  It is not a darling of the street any more.  It will be a market performer at best.

2014-04-21 BUY on WEAKNESS Must be logged in to use chart SCL-T Shawcor Ltd. (A)

It is very overbought in the short term.  It has broken out to make a new high.  The stock is not overly expensive at this point.  If it pulls back to where there was a lot of resistance for the last year and there is support there, this would be a very good sign.

Preferred Share ETF.  There is a new variety in Preferreds called ‘Rate Reset’.  These are the best in rising interest rates, although they don’t make you immune to them.  ZPR is a laddered reset preferred and would be the best one to use.

Markets.  They were originally looking for 4 or 5 % increase in earnings quarter over quarter and now it is down to 2%.  What we saw last week was the beginning of the 10% correction he was looking for.  It will play out for the next month or two.  This is a correction in a bull market.  If the S&P falls 10, the NASDAQ could fall 20.  Let’s look at this dip in the market as an opportunity to do some buying.  Most people believe things are recovering.

The sell off that we are in now is specifically linked to the over valuation of the NASDAQ.  The momentum money is coming out of the market.

Educational Segment.  Why Earnings Estimates Are So Low.  Warnings are a big game for the market.  They put out guidance that they know they can beat just before releasing them.  Telecoms and utilities are improving guidance slightly.  We need to pay attention to materials and financials.  He thinks the gains are going to be mitigated by slow earnings over the next couple of years. These corrections will be buying opportunities.

You are getting a piece of the global business.  But there is not a lot of net growth compared to US banks.  Not the ideal investment.  Although it does have a stable dividend and there is probably not a lot of downside.  You could buy below $48 for a trade.

Already significantly reflecting forward revenue from increased interest rates.  If it pulled back to recent support, it would be more of a topping pattern for this one.
