Markets.  We are in a battle between the deflationary debt and deleveraging, and the central banks printing money.  This has been going on since 2009.  In the smaller cap commodity side things have been very negative for 3 years now.  We are heading into ‘pre-announcement season’.  You are likely to see some pretty big misses and that could put downward pressure on equities.  He is seeing some definite rolling over in global trade.  We could be at a cyclical peak in the inventory cycle.  He tries to find companies that have unique characteristics that are not dependant on short term cyclical factors.  He shorts cyclical companies with negative currency exposure.  We are heading into the weakest period of the year for metals.

He has held it for 4 or 5 years.  About 18 months ago they switched the marking for Wiesers to their parent company.  They are gradually rolling this out in the US and are doing well.  He could see this being taken out.

Solid management team, and a tail wind due to currency.  Revenues are in US dollars and dividends are in Canadian dollars.  He would definitely take a look at it.  6.7% dividend.

They purchase revenue streams from farmers of Canola seed.  He likes it.  They are supposed to come out with numbers in early April.  He thinks there is a chance for it to become quite large and if they get enough size they can start charging premiums and have better pricing power in the marketplace than an individual farmer could have.

If the housing market got really bad (dropped 20-30%) here this company would go to zero.  This is unlikely, however.  This is a very binary type of situation.  It is like picking up nickels in front of a bulldozer.

(Top Pick Apr 21/14, Up 73.91%) Still one of his largest positions.  They settled a patent suit.  It is a bit of a roll up story.  They are likely to do more acquisitions.  Thinks the stock will go materially higher.

The management team has plans to be even more acquisitive.  He just sold today because it has had such a great run.  He would wait for them to do another big acquisition.
