Markets.  He was pleased with the Trump rally.  US financials are probably his largest weighting and he has owned US industrials for a long time.  For him it is a stock by stocks call.  He has been reducing position sizes recently.  He does not focus on yield but on the company behind the business.  There is a rotation out of higher dividends as interest rates tick up.  Buying back stock at an attractive price is just another way to deploy capital to him.  He likes companies that know when to raise dividends, buy back stock or make acquisitions.

The medium term concern is that they have to make a transition to making money from not just one device.  They will face margin compression.  The stock is not expensive.  They have a rock solid balance sheet.

He still likes and owns it.  Some businesses have been challenged and some are doing well.  At some point you burn through heavy duty transmissions and they have to be replaced.  The conversion to electric vehicles will require capital expenditures on the part of these companies.

2016-12-05 HOLD Must be logged in to use chart BCE-T BCE Inc.

It sold off a bit recently due to rates moving higher.  It is a fairly mature business.  It is not attractive enough to him on a free cash flow basis.  The dividend is sustainable, however.  Don’t move out of it into banks.

2016-12-05 BUY Must be logged in to use chart BIP.UN-T Brookfield Infrastucture Partners

They are very good at what they do.  They put a lot of money to work in Brazil because they found bargains there.  The stock is not as cheap as it was, but they can sustain AFFO.

Downside protection is very important.  He only invests in equities he believes in and that have a good risk/return profile.

It is a great company.  He has a small position.  He has a lot of respect for the management.  They are truly a machine.  Valuation is keeping him from increasing his position.  CP-T had more potential improvements so increased more.

2016-12-05 BUY Must be logged in to use chart COST-Q Costco Wholesale

A great business.  You are very protected from the Ecommerce threat.  They have enormous amounts of purchasing power.  They make a huge amount of their profit through the member fees.  It is a very defendable business.  He wants to own it but is being patient about the price.  We are not too far off.

He likes rails.  They are unreplicatable networks.  They are diversified.  But at any given point you have things that are working and things that are not.  Autos are at cyclical peaks.  Grain will rebound.  He thinks you will get double digit earnings growth going forward.  But it won’t be in a straight line.

Management has done a very good job.  It was a difficult few years for them.  You are able to buy them at a more attractive price than previously.  You won’t get outsized returns but it is positioned to withstand pretty big shocks in the system.

A very well run company, but you are paying quite a bit for it.  It can take quite a while to grow into it.  We are a number of years into the housing turnaround.

He owns both L-T and WN-T.  They have done a great job of being more efficient and integrating Shoppers.  They generate a healthy amount of cash.  It is not dirt cheap, but you can get it at an attractive price.  Buy it and leave it.
