Markets. Thinks we are going to see a normalization of markets, which usually speaks to a 10% drawdown in the market. Feels that a lot of the smart money believes that, and they don’t want to get sucked into highfliers. Because of this, we are seeing the highfliers lose momentum and really pull back hard. This is probably the 1st step in this correction process. A lot of value stocks that he was buying in November, December and even in January, that were completely forgotten, he is seeing a very good bid to those. It tells him that money is moving around and is looking for better opportunities, but doesn’t want to chase momentum. He wants to see money change from weak hands to strong hands. In order for strong hands to get involved, there has to be a discount, a value bias to whatever people are looking at.

US banking. Regional banks or large caps? He holds large caps. J.P. Morgan and Wells Fargo are in his portfolio. Likes them because they have critical mass to them and he doesn’t think they will ever be in a position where the rug will be pulled out from under them. They can take advantage of technology and scale it across their platform. However, he feels there is a very good argument for going smaller to Regions Financial (RF-N), etc. There are a ton of them out there.

2014-03-25 COMMENT Must be logged in to use chart AVO-T Avigilon Corp

Thinks this is suffering from “momentumitis”. It was a massive winner last year and when you see that, it is really hard to step into that momentum. You want to see it consolidate here. As long as they can hold onto their revenue growth, 50%-70%, which apparently is intact, they should be okay. If a couple of quarters went by and everything was intact, he would be buying this again.

2014-03-25 HOLD Must be logged in to use chart CTC.A-T Canadian Tire Corporation Ltd. (A)

Just had an executive shuffle, moving someone from the sports side up to the president’s role. This is interesting because, between this company and Forzani, they absolutely dominate the sports equipment space in Canada. This is one of the few retailers that he would stick with here.

2014-03-25 HOLD Must be logged in to use chart DIS-N Walt Disney

Thinks the stock is suffering from momentum anxiety from last year. It was a fantastic performing media stock last year. Likes this long-term. Have amazing creative talent. If you look at where all of these platforms are going, they are all looking to build on creative product. What is hurting cable companies, content companies, and a number of these companies is that no one is sure what 2 years looks like, who has control or who has the lever in terms of negotiations. Very good company long-term. Thinks you will be rewarded over the next couple of years.

2014-03-25 HOLD Must be logged in to use chart F-N Ford Motor

Thinks they are suffering from their European issues. Expects earnings are going to be down this year. There isn’t a compelling opportunity to buy this right now. If you own, continue to Hold and he thinks you will do just fine. Very well run company.

2014-03-25 COMMENT Must be logged in to use chart FB-Q Facebook

Acquiring Oculus for $2 billion, a company that specializes in virtual reality. $400 million in cash and the rest in stock. This is concerning. “Drunken sailors going out and spending their months pay in one night.” Thinks this is illustrative of a very expensive stock and a CEO who has full reign and knows he has a currency and who has to compete against Microsoft Gaming, Google, Apple and everyone else. This is a gaming platform. This concerns him.

2014-03-25 SELL Must be logged in to use chart GIS-N General Mills

He tends not to gravitate to the defensive growth stories. The problem that he has with food producers is that there is always a reason why they are missing their numbers or something has gone wrong. Really not his favourite. Prefers beverage companies and would look at PepsiCo (PEP-N). Great company and very well run.

2014-03-25 DON'T BUY Must be logged in to use chart GRPN-Q Groupon, Inc

Would stay away from this. Thinks they are trying to reinvent their business model and salvage what they can. You just don’t need to be there. When a growth stock breaks its trajectory and breaks its business model and is no longer growth, you want to stay away from it, at least for 2 years, but 5 years is probably a better rule of thumb.

2014-03-25 HOLD Must be logged in to use chart GS-N Goldman Sachs

Great institution and are going to do very well. He prefers credit or retail banking. Steady fees is a low volatile way of playing a strong US consumer. Thinks there is a very strong M&A cycle and a very strong IPO cycle that is currently going on, which will probably last for years and years.

2014-03-25 HOLD Must be logged in to use chart HLF-T High Liner Foods

Canadian fish processing company. An attractive company. Has seen management buy-in on shares. Fairly good business model. He is looking for companies that are going to be strong in a weak Cdn$ environment. A lot of this company’s sales are targeted to the US and a lot of their costs are in Canada. You should see margin expansion.

Likes this. A fairly inexpensive way to play the enterprise computing space. Was a dramatic under performer last year and we are now seeing stocks get actually bought here. This makes complete sense and he would stick with it if you own.

2014-03-25 HOLD Must be logged in to use chart KBH-N KB Home

Likes the US housing space. This has come off pretty hard here. Doesn’t know if right now is the time. Seeing major negative sentiment readings on US homes and it is right down towards its bottom. Thinks this is a good space to get into right now. Over the next 3 years, we are more likely to see a growth scenario play out in the US, rather than a deflation scenario.

2014-03-25 PARTIAL BUY Must be logged in to use chart MAL-T Magellan Aerospa

Stock has been behaving strangely. Very thinly traded, so when someone decides to Buy or Sell, they can knock it around quite a bit. He has been buying at around $7.50 or a little bit lower. This should do very well because a lot of their revenues are US-based and their labour costs are Canadian. He would suggest that you average in.

2014-03-25 PAST TOP PICK Must be logged in to use chart MG-T Magna Int'l. (A)

(A Top Pick March 7/13. Up 90.63%.) Had a massive earnings number in the last quarter and a big dividend raise. Has been selling his holdings down and it is about half to what it was at the beginning of the year. Expects he will have a better opportunity to buy it back sometime this summer.
