Markets.  Some of the negative revisions in the first part of the year are starting to go back the other way.  The market is telling you that rates are rising.  The bond market has really gone through a shift.  Whether a rate hike in the US is fall 2015 or spring 2016 is a mute point.  The sell off today constitutes a buying opportunity.  More money is going to rotate from the fixed income world into equities.  Sectors looking good are financials, consumer discretionary, technology and healthcare.  Energy and Commodities look bad.  Utilities and REITs don’t look good either.

Oil stocks.  Get rid of all of them?  He has a zero weight and believes there is a risk in the commodity price.  There is lots of supply coming at the market.  He would certainly reduce exposure to the energy sector.  There is real risk there.

His single biggest position.  They are in a product cycle upgrade.  Incremental sales in iPhones are from other manufacture’s customers.  He loves his iWatch.  It is an inexpensive company.  39% return on equity.  Their services business is the most profitable part of their business, such as iTunes or the monthly subscription to iCloud.

2015-06-04 HOLD Must be logged in to use chart AMT-N American Tower

A great house in a difficult neighbourhood. They are not terribly economically sensitive.  It is growing its dividend nicely, but is in the REIT sector and gets impacted by the negative view of REITs.  Look at big cap technology stocks such as MSFC-O.  Healthcare is another sector to go to, as well as financials.

2015-06-04 BUY Must be logged in to use chart ATD.B-T Alimentation Couche-Tard (B)

In the developed markets, energy is driving them.  One of the key themes is the consumer sector.  These guys are low-end consumer discretionary.  They did a great job of building their business.  They also made great acquisitions and did a great job of executing.  It looks very attractive.

It is not so economically sensitive.  He would prefer something in capital markets.  It looks okay, otherwise.  It is a great company, but it won’t be one of the strongest performers although it will be predictable.

2015-06-04 TOP PICK Must be logged in to use chart C-N CitiGroup

This is probably the bank that is best positioned right now.  Their asset quality has been improving.  They have been focusing on their credit card business.  As the rates go higher they make money on the float.  50% of revenue comes from outside the US.  It is inexpensive compared to its peers.  Thinks he will get good dividend growth.  There are a lot of drivers for this stock.

2015-06-04 SELL Must be logged in to use chart CVE-T Cenovus Energy

It was not unusual for them to raise capital earlier this year.  Many in the US have done this to shore up balance sheets.  He would be careful.  He thinks there is a risk that this sector will be difficult for a while.  There is money to be made in other sectors.  You have to be a good seller of your position and don’t let a little mistake become a bigger one by averaging down.

2015-06-04 BUY Must be logged in to use chart INTC-Q Intel

He likes big tech because it is a big cash flow generator and can be a big dividend grower.  Their problem has been that they are so centric to PCs.  They made an acquisition to help them with networking and data centers.  Semiconductor companies are seeing strategic value in paying a premium to market.  Private investors can buy at market value today yet acquirers are paying a premium.  It is not quite as aggressive a position as some, but you make good money.

Energy infrastructure is the most defensive part of the energy market.  But you are running into a headwind.  Supply lines might slow and you might see less dividend growth.  There are more attractive sectors that benefit from lower energy.

2015-06-04 TOP PICK Must be logged in to use chart MFC-T Manulife Financial

He goes to where the puck is going.  We were at 300 year lows in interest rates.  We had uncertain equity markets.  These are challenges for insurance companies.  They had to fix their balance sheet, grew outside of Canada and wealth management is now a part of their business.  We have improving capital markets and slowly rising interest rates.  These guys are the biggest beneficiaries of rising interest rates.  They are likely to grow their earnings double digits for the next few years.  This is a play on global wealth management and on the US.  It is breaking out to new highs.
