Markets.  He is not sure we will see anything significant coming out of the Trump/ Trudeau meeting.  If you X-out all the commodities we export to the US, there is a pretty balanced trade between Canada and the US.  If they target specific industries those industries could get hurt.  He did not see softwood lumber on the agenda for today.  Trump’s idea of fair may be very different than Trudeau’s idea of fair.

Paying the S&P-500 – Pullback possible?  He thinks we will get some disappointment risk on execution.  The tax plan is probably not being implemented until 2018 now.  He thinks there will be a buying opportunity coming soon with a 5-10% pullback as there is one every year.  He would not be a buyer of the S&P-500 for the long term right now, but it is good for a trade.

Canadian version of ZPW-T?  He does not think there is one coming because there is not the depth to the Canadian market.

Gold.  He was buying XGD-T, ZGD-T when gold was around $1150 a month and a half back.  He has since sold out of XGD-T.  He trimmed GLD-N last week.  He does not know if Trump will be bullish for gold or not.

Educational Segment. Using Stops. The value approach looks for a range of support and how you buy into it.  Anchoring is a behaviour where you want to try to get your money back.  That is the wrong way to think about it.  You should think about where you should put the money in a losing stock.  Get out of a position if it is not working.  You should have a plan on when to get out.

He is concerned about valuation here.  But they are a great company.  In a market correction it could come down more than the market.  $740-750 would be a buying range.

Look at the risk factors. US Trump execution is a big one. Brexit negotiations start next month. Also, there are German and French elections. This will be the beginning of the EU breaking up and will be bearish for a while and then bullish in the long run. He is out of Japan, however.

If Chinese imports are taxed, it will really hurt Walmart.  Don’t buy above the 52 week lows.

2017-02-13 BUY Must be logged in to use chart ZWE-T BMO Europe High Dividend Covered Call Hedged to CAD ET

European Market. He plays it with ZWE-T. It has high dividends and a covered call strategy with a currency hedge.  6-7% yield.  For the next 5 years that would be pretty good for Europe.  It is the more conservative way to go.

Markets.  Trump’s immigration policy is not going that well.  He says he wants the US$ weaker.  Border taxes will almost certainly push the dollar higher.  There are conflicting policies.  At some point the market wakes up and realizes there will be execution problems.  The US will be VERY well supplied with oil for the next 5 years with Keystone coming on.  This will put downward pressure on oil prices.

Bear Markets.  Inverse ETFs will go up 1:1 when markets to down.  Don’t use leveraged ETFs.  Utilities are best correlated to interest rates.  Gold can rally in a bear market.  You have to look at bonds because they rally in a bear market.

Cyber Security.  There are two ETFs.  HACK-N is one.  You get access to all the companies playing in the space.  It has been trending since day one.  He would buy on dips as the ETF has been climbing since its inception.  Risks right here are a little high, however.

Educational Segment.  Measuring Risk and Reward.  Within 20 years the vast majority of money in the world will be run by computers.  The traditional portfolio manager will be gone.  E.g. SU-T, 25% of the sector, a big player.  Going back 10 years it has made nobody any money for 10 years.  It is up less than the dividend.  Buy it when it is cheap relative to the benchmark and the markets.  Figure out how much you need in your portfolio.  The price of oil is the most important factor in the stock price.  Looking at the 5 year chart it is incredibly overvalued.

He does not like where it is.  We are against all time highs.  It could break out, but there is definitely resistance here.  You could write a put option and get paid about 5% yield over the next year.  If it drops 20% then you will have to buy it and that is fine.  This is how he would play AAPL-Q.  If the option expires, then just do it again.

My preferrers have come down substantially as a result of lowered bank rates, I believe. Shouldn't an instrument with a fixed rate go UP when bank rates are lowered?
