Markets. TSX is outperforming and he sees this continuing for the rest of the year. There has been an underperformance since 2012 against world markets, but more specifically against the S&P 500. When you look at what is going on this year, it seems to be turning around. It is up about 6% compared to a mostly flat US market. Also, if you look at the international markets, it is the same sort of thing as the US, really lagging behind the Canadian market. This is mostly a resource led game. The XEG index is up about 15% so far this year and the same thing with the gold XGD. These are the 2 leaders and together they make up about 45% of the markets.

2014-04-17 DON'T BUY Must be logged in to use chart AD-T Alaris Royalty

Looks very weak right now. There are 3 things that come to the foreground. Back in December there was an 8.6% drop. Near the beginning of the year there was another 7.3% drop. And then another 6.3% drop just last week. The long-term moving averages have turned down. Doesn’t see enough volume and can see this falling apart and going back down to $23.

2014-04-17 BUY Must be logged in to use chart AGU-T Agrium

Looks good right now. In a nice uptrend. Set $100 as a Stop. On the downside, the stock can go back down to a consolidation range of around $95. This will get some resistance at around $112.

2014-04-17 COMMENT Must be logged in to use chart BBD.B-T Bombardier Inc (B)

Stock is in a short-term down cycle and is having some problems. In a boring range of approximately $3.78-$4.28. You could take a guess at this and take on the small position with the hope that it goes back up to the $4.80 level. If it goes below $3.80, he would definitely exit.

2014-04-17 PAST TOP PICK Must be logged in to use chart CCL.B-T CCL Industries (B)

(A Top Pick Feb 3/14. Up 24.29%.) He has taken some profits, but it is still a good holding. Has potential to grow, but $90 is where he would raise some yellow flags.

2014-04-17 COMMENT Must be logged in to use chart DML-T Denison Mines Corp

This is a tricky stock. Very, very choppy. However, it is now showing a nice break out from late 2013, followed by a consolidation with pick up in volume. Potentially a turnaround situation. Chart shows it had a spike on Feb 25 where it was up 9% from $1.50. That was very good and will use that as a bottom. Use the $1.50 as a Stop. He thinks you could expect another $.50 increase from here to about $2.30.

2014-04-17 TOP PICK Must be logged in to use chart GUD-X Knight Therapeutics

2014-04-17 HOLD Must be logged in to use chart HAC-T HAP Seasonal Rotation ETF

This is a basket of different investments and is actively managed. Other than a couple of quick movements up and down, it has been on a very steady upward track. Looks good and is stable.

2014-04-17 PAST TOP PICK Must be logged in to use chart HWD-T Hardwoods Distribution

(A Top Pick Feb 3/14. 6.67%.) This is continuing to do well. The thesis is still there. Getting into a little bit of a consolidation period right now and hopefully it will break out, which would be indicated at around $11 even. Stocks in uptrends tend to consolidate. This one has consolidated for quite a while at around $8.30.

2014-04-17 BUY Must be logged in to use chart MGM-N MGM Mirage

This is holding right at the 100 day moving average. On moving averages, when a stock comes down it bounces off of it several times, it is a clear uptrend and we are at that level right now. Be careful. If it drops below $21.50, that is an exit price. His expectation is $30 in the next 6 months.

2014-04-17 BUY Must be logged in to use chart PD-T Precision Drilling

Very interesting chart. Had some problems for several years. Chart shows a slow recovery starting in 2012 and the momentum is increasing, which is very positive. Volume is starting to pick up. The breakout began in February. He would be Buying and using the 50 day moving average of around $12.27 as a Stop. Doesn’t see any strong resistance until you hit around $17-$18.

2014-04-17 TOP PICK Must be logged in to use chart RY-T Royal Bank

He is anticipating a pickup in M&A activity with a shift from bonds to stocks. This tends to be very good, especially for a company like this with their large wealth management component. From 2012 to the present, the chart has had a nice uptrend. It was a consolidation level around the $60 and $70 levels, but it is breaking out. Use $70 as a Stop. He can see this going to $80. Yield of 3.87%.

2014-04-17 BUY Must be logged in to use chart SGY-T Surge Energy Inc

Chart shows it is coming from a bottom in early 2013 followed by a consolidation and a new breakout. You want to have a Stop at about $5 with an expectation from there of some difficulties at around $9. This looks like a fairly decent opportunity. Use a Stop at about $6 and his expectation is somewhere around the $8-$9 range. Yield of 7.6%.
