2014-08-25 BUY on WEAKNESS Must be logged in to use chart A Commentary A Comment -- General Comments From an Expert

Silver.  What gets gold going gets silver going.  We need inflation.  Deflation is the bigger risk to the economic story for the next couple of years.  We need Gold above $1500 and inflation in order to get another up-trend.  If we get a washout in the next month or two it could be a great buying opportunity.

Educational Segment.  Financial Literacy.  Are you a smart consumer of financial media?  The government wants to strengthen the skills of Canadians in financial matters.  You can get ideas from TV, but you must do your own research.  You need to have a plan as to when to get out.  65+ year olds’ bankruptcies have increased 600% over the last 20 years.

2014-08-25 BUY on WEAKNESS Must be logged in to use chart IYW-N iShares Dow Jones Technology E.T.F.

Tech ETF.  Market Capitalization weighting.  A diversified way to play the sector, but it is not that cheap right now.  He would want to see a correction before you jump in.

2014-08-25 HOLD Must be logged in to use chart THI-T Tim Hortons

He has looked at analysts’ spin on the acquisition by Burger King of Tim Hortons.  The stock had a big gap up, but maybe the deal does not work.  He sold Tims this morning even though it could go higher still, because it hit his target.  It would be a buy at $68.

2014-08-25 PARTIAL BUY Must be logged in to use chart URA-N Global X Uranium ETF

Likes Uranium stocks and accumulating them is the right way to buy them.  The fundamentals are lining up.  Uranium is the cleanest source for energy for the growth in the world coming up.  If we start getting Uranium above $35/$36 then trend lines will be breaking and you will get all kinds of good fundamentals.

When M&A activity happens, he backs off because he is not an expert at evaluating it.  Technically, it has pulled back and could be interesting.

2014-08-25 BUY on WEAKNESS Must be logged in to use chart ZWB-T BMO Covered Call Cdn Banks ETF

Recommends this to get into banks.  Has a covered call strategy on half the portfolio and that generates extra yield.  Depending on volatility, the premium is bigger or smaller.  Most banks are pretty close to their one year out price target.  Maybe we have another quarter or so when the numbers are okay, but September is when there are corrections, so he would wait if desiring to buy this one.

Markets.  London is more biased to raising rates.  In the end the ECB will step on the gas, though.  The trend is inflation vs. deflation risks.  Deflation is thought to be the bigger risk in the EU.  People need to make asset allocation choices.  Bonds have outperformed equities this year.

Covered Call Gold ETFs.  Makes more sense if you want to play gold.  Without the covered call you have zero return after inflation.

Educational Segment.  You want components of fixed income and equity when you create a diversified, balanced portfolio.  The strategy is difficult because of the low yields of bonds.  The reality is that equities have twice the volatility of fixed income.  When the market is strong like it is now, you want to rebalance.

Does not see a risk for the next number of years.  We have recovered post-crisis.  As long as we stay above the $43 level, then the breakout is not false otherwise it is negative and is not a new trend.

GE is the economy because they touch so many parts of it, although they are getting out of certain areas.  GE has been trending down this year while the DOW has been trending upwards.

2014-08-18 DON'T BUY Must be logged in to use chart MFC-T Manulife Financial

The biggest factor is the shape of the yield curve when you compare to banks.  Interest rates will be low for a long, long time.  Deflation is the bigger risk than inflation.  If the yield curve stays steep then banks will continue to profit from it, not insurance companies.

When you decide to sell in real time you only find out you sold too early with hindsight.  Can it double from here?  Who knows?  There was a material gap up recently.  If it comes back into the gap, that is a bad thing.

2014-08-18 DON'T BUY Must be logged in to use chart XGD-T iShares S&P/TSX Global Gold

There is this big base developing over the last year or so and is threatening the resistance area right now.  Most recent dip in June did not make a lower low.  He thinks it will continue to chop around here until there is inflation; however he thinks there is a bigger threat of deflation than inflation at present.  It is tradable on a short term basis.  Buy at $12.65 sell at $13.50-14 if you want to trade it.  Use a stop loss.
