Market. As the US bond yields moved up, people have moved into more cyclical pro-growth sectors. He started looking at energy last year when prices were going down. Any time he sees an area out of favour or depressed, he starts to do his homework. Oil prices have moved up significantly, but some of the Canadian producers’ stock prices have not moved a lot. A lot of that is due to a possible border adjustment tax, and what does the Trump administration really mean for the Canadian energy industry. The market has taken a fairly draconian review, and people are selling first and thinking about the real implications later, which is not the right way to think about it. The comments in the last few days suggest that the outlook for the Canadian industry and the US need for energy and dependence on Canadian oil, particularly heavy oil, is quite high and they want a constructive relationship. He is also starting to look at some of the beat-up names in healthcare.

Apple (AAPL-Q) or Alphabet (GOOGL-Q)? He owns both, although he has a bigger position in Google and thinks of it as a better business.

2017-02-15 COMMENT Must be logged in to use chart ACB-X Aurora Cannabis

The whole medical/recreational marijuana industry is undergoing a lot of change. Most of that is legislative and we are seeing the development of a new industry that could be very large, but part of the challenge as an investor is trying to figure out what that means for these individual companies. Most of them don’t make much money or have a history of earnings. This is in the “too tough to figure out” category.

2017-02-15 COMMENT Must be logged in to use chart BAC-N Bank of America

As US interest rates rise and the net interest margin environment for the banks improve, all banks should do well. This is probably one of the cheaper ones on a valuation basis. They also have a large consumer mortgage business, which they should benefit from going forward.

2017-02-15 COMMENT Must be logged in to use chart BAM.A-T Brookfield Asset Management (A)

People are focused on their ability to continue to deploy very large amounts of capital globally. One of the premier alternative asset managers. Increasingly they are building a very, very successful asset management business. Because of the notoriety of their successful investment track record, they’ve been able to gather a lot of assets from pension funds and sovereign wealth funds around the globe. The management and performance fees they are earning are becoming a larger and larger piece of cash flow and have a lot of value. This will probably be a lot more valuable 10 years from now than it is today.

2017-02-15 PAST TOP PICK Must be logged in to use chart BRB-T Brick Brewing Company Ltd.

(A Top Pick Jan 28/16. Up 42.92%.) He still really likes this. They are benefiting from the continuing move to craft beer and a lot of the legislative changes that are happening in the Ontario market. Also, beer is now being sold in grocery stores in Ontario.

2017-02-15 TOP PICK Must be logged in to use chart CAS-T Cascades Inc

They have 2 core businesses, tissue and container board. He likes the container board side in particular because of the growing economy where people are shipping more things in boxes. It is a fairly tight market right now for container board and there have been price increases in the last couple of days. As more and more online shopping occurs, that is going to lead to more things shipped in boxes. Trading at only about 5.5X enterprise value to EBITDA. Dividend yield of 1.15%. (Analysts’ price target is $14.60.)

2017-02-15 COMMENT Must be logged in to use chart CAT-N Caterpillar

The perceived outlook from investors is that this company is well positioned to benefit from infrastructure spending and the global mining boom. Based on the valuation, it is trading above its historical multiple. A lot of the good news is already built into the share price. This is not an overly cheap stock.

2017-02-15 COMMENT Must be logged in to use chart CGX-T Cineplex Inc

This has an almost monopoly like position in theatres and movie distributions in Canada. Because of that, it gets priced fairly richly. They just had an earnings miss, but there can be revenue volatility from quarter to quarter. You could take a look at some of the US theatre companies which historically have traded at lower valuations.

2017-02-15 COMMENT Must be logged in to use chart CHR-T Chorus Aviation Inc

Just had a move up recently, due to a financing they did a couple of months ago. A really good business. Operating a lot of regional flights that are not so competitive and has a relationship with Air Canada (AC-T). He prefers just playing Air Canada directly, which is very cheap. On a valuation multiple basis, Air Canada would screen cheaper than this one or Westjet (WJA-T).

2017-02-15 COMMENT Must be logged in to use chart CRM-N SalesForce.com Inc.

He doesn’t love this one. As a successful software business, it has gotten very high valuations. As a value investor, he doesn’t see why he would pay 40 or 50 times earnings. Prefers something like Google (GOOGL-Q) over this.

2017-02-15 DON'T BUY Must be logged in to use chart DIS-N Walt Disney

Over the very long-term, there is still further upside in this. ESPN is a very key asset for them, so there have been concerns on cord cutting. Their parks business is very healthy and continuing to grow. Trading at 18X earnings, so it is not cheap. The earnings growth trajectory for the next couple of years has slowed quite a bit. He would wait for a pullback.

This has been a very successful company over the last number of years. It is a growth through acquisition type of model, buying a bunch of small software companies, cutting out the costs, and trying to put it together in a bigger rollup strategy. It has always been expensive.

2017-02-15 BUY on WEAKNESS Must be logged in to use chart FRII-T Freshii Inc

A brand-new public company in Canada. A franchise model. IPO’d at a very rich price, but has performed well since then. If they are able to increase their unit locations from about 250 today up to 700-800 in the next few years, it would represent one of the faster growing franchise players. He really likes the business and the concept, and it has a lot of opportunity to grow. However, it is trading at a rich valuation.

Apple (AAPL-Q) or Alphabet (GOOGL-Q)? He owns both, although he has a bigger position in this one and thinks of it as a better business. If you strip out their cash, it is only trading at 17 or 18 times earnings.
