Markets.  He thinks this week has to do with the Fed unwinding QE.  Also, you are seeing numbers out of Europe, China and Japan that are quite worrying.  The US can implement QE without impacting the purchasing power of its currency, whereas Japan, when they did QE, created a tremendous weakness in the Yen.  Even grocery sales are down significantly.  It means the whole QE game globally is coming to an end.  We could see the Fed reverse their course, but does not think they will do that for credibility reasons.  There are record levels of debt in margin accounts, even compared to 2007.  Lighten up on risk assets and try to get diversified and not sensitive to broader market fundamentals.  Volatility is quite concerning to him.

He has been lightening up.  The big decline in energy services impacts this one.  He does not see a lot of positive change for this company.  He has a small position that he is looking to exit.

2014-10-17 DON'T BUY Must be logged in to use chart CPG-T Crescent Point Energy Corp

Dividend stability depends on the price of oil.  If oil falls, he thinks either cap X or the dividend will have to be cut.  Does not like names with relatively high debt that attract investors with the yield.

It is relatively expensive.  It is similar to Chorus now.  They just restructured the shares due to a CRTC requirement.  It does not have an impact on the company.

(Top Pick Sept 30/13, Down 41.87%) The build-out never really happened.  The structure of the financing was so dilutive in the end.  It paid investors in the deal to sell the shares.

2014-10-17 SELL Must be logged in to use chart LTS-T Lightstream Resources

He has been short for a long time.  When they have a lot of leverage or are higher on the cost curve, they are sensitive to weak oil prices.  He thinks they will be in a lot of trouble if oil stays low.  The dividend is a big warning sign and is not sustainable.  If oil prices rallied, the stock might do fine.

(Top Pick Sept 30/13, Up 5.71%) The new CEO is better than the prior.  They have expanded the drug base to 3 in the portfolio.  The new CEO will be much more aggressive at growing the portfolio of drugs from 3 to 6 next year to 12 the following year.  It is ridiculously cheap.Thinks you will see a double in the next while.
