Markets.  Japan is in recession.  Germany just skirted a recession after two quarters of no growth.  He does not think the US can be completely immune to this.  Having said this, earnings are great, but the outlook for 2015 is starting to come down, even if the numbers that it is coming down to are still great.  2015 could be a little bit of a tougher year.

Educational Segment.  How to Sleep at Night.  Risk and return go hand in hand.  The average market correction of more than 10% is 19%.  People sell mutual funds at this point, which is wrong.  Financial planning relieves much of the stress of investing.  Those that have a financial plan in place have much lower levels of stress and can sleep at night.  Talking about money with the spouse is very stressful.

2014-11-17 COMMENT Must be logged in to use chart COP-N ConocoPhillips

Stock vs. Stock.  BP-N vs. COP-N.  COP-N has outperformed BP-N, but that is history.  You have to know the management, their business plan, and he does not know that.  COP-N is probably not relatively cheap.

2014-11-17 BUY Must be logged in to use chart DOL-T Dollarama Inc.

Will split tomorrow.  It is getting tougher and tougher for people to make ends meet so this is a good stock going forward.  25 times earnings, but growing revenues a lot since they are opening more stores.  At some point this will tail off, but we are not there yet.  The split could be an opportunity to nibble at it.  Don’t commit a full position.  Add to it if it weakens.

It broke out, but if it came back to test the bottom and then it held, he would go into it.

2014-11-17 BUY on WEAKNESS Must be logged in to use chart SU-T Suncor Energy Inc

Stock vs. Stock.  SU-T vs. TOU-T.  Gas will have more volatility than oil.  SU-T he owns and it is the better choice.  Out a year or two it won’t have much growth.  Will trade down to the mid-$30s next year and up as high as last summer’s high.  Partially sell if it gets to the mid $40s.

2014-11-17 DON'T BUY Must be logged in to use chart TOU-T Tourmaline Oil Corp

Stock vs. Stock.  SU-T vs. TOU-T.  TOU-T is mostly Gas.  Gas will have more volatility.  FCG-T is a better way to play gas.

2014-11-17 BUY Must be logged in to use chart XEI-T iShares S&P/TSX Equity Income

Good diversification across sectors.  It is heavy in energy and oil, however.  It is geared toward bigger dividend payers.  The average dividend is about 4% or so.  It is concentrated, so you have more volatility.

2014-11-17 WATCH Must be logged in to use chart ZFS-T BMO Short Term Fed Bd E.T.F.

Short gov’t bonds.  ZFT-T is a smart money market index and they are as good as money markets.  He is okay with short term bonds except right now he does not like the interest rate risk so is holding corporate short term bonds.

Canadians made a deal with China to bypass the US$. This is about China starting to open their markets to the world. They now want the foreign investment. China will be the biggest economy in the world within 5 years. But you probably don’t want to walk around with Yuan in your pocket. You can’t sue anyone there. A lot of companies will start to pop up with direct Chinese equities. But they are extremely volatile. This won`t impact the US$ any time soon.

Markets.  US earnings.  90% of the S&P has reported.  The numbers are great.  We have progressed from a B+ to a firm A.  MCD-N disappointed, but it is not systemic. Earnings drive markets.  The stronger US dollar might detract from earnings.  30% of recent stock price appreciation is from share buy backs.  He thinks we will get a grind into year end.  Hedge funds need to chase some performance numbers into year end and that might actually push markets up then.  We are already anticipating that natural gas prices go up into February in the futures.  FCG-N has been beaten with the natural gas prices recently.

Educational Segment. The US long bond is giving the best performance. You can’t base your portfolio based on someone’s forecast. ZFL has the returns, but is the long bond ETF. The longer your maturity the more volatility you will have. You have to understand currency risks when you invest in foreign bonds. High yield bonds are ‘junk’. JNK-N is your high yield exposure. They have come down recently. Everyone needs fixed income in their portfolio.

2014-11-10 COMMENT Must be logged in to use chart HNY-T Horizons Natural Gas Yield ETF Comm

Nat Gas ETF. You have to look at what these do. This one is a yield seeker so there is an options strategy. He doesn’t follow it. You get some seasonal moves in these things because of what natural gas prices do.

2014-11-10 BUY Must be logged in to use chart HVPW-N US Equity High Volatility Put Write Fund ETF

High volatility put writes 15 to 20% out of the money. 9% yield yearly. It reduces volatility and so is in his sleep and night portfolio. It underperforms in an up market. He is down to a 2% from 5% position as markets have recovered. It is not a growth thing. It is a yield thing.
