Markets.  The American market looks expensive to him.  Trump has not yet implemented his pro-business policies so the market is up on anticipation.  The S&P has broken out and is moving up on a daily basis.  This is very positive.  There is no resistance at this point.  He does not see interest rates moving to 4%, maybe 2.5%.  The TSX is at record highs yet oil has not jumped.  CM-T is at a record high.  We have appositive breakout that is taking place.  But we are at the upper bounds for PE rations for banks in Canada.

Semiconductor Stocks.  SMH-N is the best known ETF in this area.  They have a cycle.  A lot of chips are bought by the end of the year.  We are past the seasonal period so once it weakens then exit.

Base Metals.  We are in the seasonal period: Nov. to Dec. and Jan. 23 to Apr.  It is volatile compared to other sectors.  Let them run unless it starts to break down.

Portfolio Construction.2016 was a pretty good year. Most stock markets around the world were up. Bonds were flat. As a result, if you had a 70/30 portfolio it is now probably 70/23 or 75/25 and you are going to have to trim a little, 5%-10% of your equities have to be sold in order to get back to the 70% target, and that money has to be put back into income in order to maintain the risk profile and the suitability.

Gross capital gains are applied against the OAS threshold even though there are offsetting capital losses. Is this correct? That is correct. The OAS claw back is based on income for any kind of allowable adjustment. This is for people who are in the top 5% of income earners. There are things called flow through shares that you can buy, which are not applied against line 234 of the tax return, and that gives you a tax deduction against all sources of income.

Behavioural Finance?The most applicable thing in this might be anchoring. A lot of people don’t like to Sell losers, because they want to hold them until they come back. You have to let these go. If it is something that has gone down, you should sell it. Also, if something has gone up very well, don’t be afraid to trim.

With 3 accounts, RRIF, TFSA and non-registered account, which type of investment should be steered to which account?The 1st thing is, do not put US investments into your TFSA because there are tax problems associated with that. You should put equities into your TFSA, unless it is going to be something you need for buying a car, an emergency fund, etc. Has no strong opinion on what to do with your taxable account and your RRIF.

Should dividends that are DRIP be changed in order to put the dividends into a new RRIF, or should I sell something instead?There is no right or wrong answer on this. It is a matter of personal preference.

2017-02-23 HOLD Barrick Gold
ABX-T
Brooke Thackray

It broke out of a down trend earlier.  Gold tends to slow down during Mar. to May.  ABX-T would go down.  Put some stops on this.  As soon as gold weakens, then exit.

AGT-T
Brooke Thackray

The best time of the year for AG stocks is Aug. to the end of the year.  Right now we are after the seasonal period.  It is in a descending triangle and that is a bearish pattern.  If it breaks down below the support level in this pattern, then you need to exit.

There has been a bit of a pull back and then a bump up.  This is a position you can let run.  Feb 25th until May 9th is the period of seasonal strength.

2017-02-23 DON'T BUY CASH
CASH
Brooke Thackray

A lot of people went out to cash before the election based on valuations and then the market ran away on them.  Drops this time of year are less frequent than other parts of the year.  Don’t move to huge amounts of cash this time of year.

CHR-T

It is an offshoot from the airline industry, which does well in the fall time.  Maybe Warren Buffet will buy this one.  We have seen the break out and it is above resistance.  It tested it and came back up.  This actually looks quite favourable.

2017-02-23 SELL Crescent Point Energy Corp
CPG-T
John DeGoey

Last year they did a share offering, and then cut the dividends. Should I hold or dump?The stock got hit pretty hard about 2 years ago when oil prices dropped. He would not hang onto this any longer. A well-run company, but there is nothing you can do about it. As long as oil is trading in the neighbourhood of the low to mid $50, it is difficult for this company to make money.

CSU-T

We should see it fall back due to it getting to the end of the period of seasonality.  He would put a stop in place.  It was going down then the market is going up.
