Markets.  There are a lot of people in stocks because the alternatives are so unpleasant.  There are a lot of risks in the bond markets.  He thinks wage increase in the US make it look like full employment.  You have to buy something with your money.  The best part of the US market has been the Russell 2000, the smaller cap stocks.  He thinks they are a bit inflated now.  He thinks most of the money will be made through dividends for the next year or two at least in Canada.  Sometimes companies are paying dividends that exceed their earnings or even their cash flow and this is not sustainable.  You have to do your homework and make sure they are sustainable.  He thinks the North American economies will be in a slow growth mode for some time.  Health care, big technology and experiential consumerism are sectors to outperform the economy.

The street gets overly focused on iPhone sales from quarter to quarter.  Apple also has a big cloud business.  There will be a big conversion to the iPhone 7 when it comes out, but don’t wait till then.

2016-08-08 DON'T BUY Must be logged in to use chart AC-T Air Canada (B)

He will never again own airline stocks.  They are too volatile.  At the end of the day an airline seat is a commodity, but it expires the moment the plane takes off.  He is not tempted.

2016-08-08 BUY Must be logged in to use chart CU-T Canadian Utilities

He loves this company.  It is a dividend grower, conservatively managed and a core holding of his.  It is a conservative parking spot for people who are worried about the markets.

2016-08-08 BUY Must be logged in to use chart GE-N General Electric

It is hampered by the strong US dollar.  But it is a great company with great products.  The jet aircraft industry shows terrific growth going out over 10 years.  Exporting is hard with a strong US dollar.  He thinks there is room for dividend growth.  It is a bet on the US economy.

It depends on one or two drugs.  They ran into a lot of competition on one of their drugs.  Competitors have come out with drugs that are cheaper and GILD-Q had to take their prices down.
