2017-05-19 BUY Prudential Financial Inc
PRU-N
John Petrides

MetLife (MET-N) or Prudential Life (PRU-N)? When you are building a diversified portfolio, within financials, if you own a bank, only 1 or 2 lifecos is just as good. He can’t really choose between these 2, and in fact would own both of them. Both are going to move in similar directions, and both will benefit from rising interest rates.

QCOM-Q
John Petrides

In a scrap with Apple (AAPL-Q), which they go through every 3 years. If not Apple, it’s Samsung, Motorola, Nokia, etc. They have tremendous cash and a balance sheet to support whatever the outcome may be. Trading at 11X earnings and a near 4% dividend yield. They’ll benefit from cash repatriation if Trump is able to pass through his tax reform. There are also 2 other stimuli. 1.) You are about to begin a five-year upgrade cycle by the wireless carriers, which this company will be a beneficiary from. 2.) They bought NXP Semiconductors, which gives them foray into the car market, as well as the chip that is embedded in your credit card.

David Driscoll

He took little flyer on this. The opportunity is to not only grow their business through small entrepreneurs starting up a retail website, but also they get to data mine all the transactions that are going on and start to get stickier with their retention of clients. His 1st purchase was a half a position at $83. If it gets to $160, he will automatically Sell half, and then let the rest run. They just did an equity issue today to raise cash for corporate purposes, which drop the stock by about $2 a share. If it started to go too far, too fast, then he would get a little concerned.

He continues to be a buyer of this. They own significant assets such as MTV, Nickelodeon, Paramount Studios, assets that are worth something. Consumers are changing viewing habits of television. They are streaming through YouTube, using more Facebook and Twitter. The model of going right to the cable TV to view programs has gone down a lot. However, the sum of the parts is worth more than what they are currently trading at.

VOD-Q
David Driscoll

Orange (ORAN-N) or Vodafone (VOD-Q)? Europe is very important to them, they are also putting a whole lot of money into India right now. Telenor just exited India, so that is opening some space. There is huge competition in India, and very little money to be made. Debt levels will rise again when 5G spectrum is purchased. The dividend payout is still sitting at around 100%. When he sees a company increase dividends by 1%-2%, it is not an indication of a strong franchise. If you want to be in the European market, because GDP is growing there, Orange would be the pick. If you are a long-term investor and believe in the long term play of India, then then you go with this one.

Had a bad quarter. Adjusted EPS was $.95, compared to $1.06 a year ago. This was really because of competition. US has now become Europe, because everybody is fighting over that last foot in the door and trying to come up with products that people are going to take, as well as spend money on. The dividend yield is high. The dividend increase was not great. You are almost getting a bond -like yield, so you are somewhat better to own the bonds than the stock, because you rate higher in the corporate chain, but you are getting the same kind of payout. He has been buying their bonds as opposed to their stocks.

Battling to buy Rite Aid (RAD-N) and are coming up with some pressure and push back. He prefers CVS (CVS-N) on a relative valuation. Trades at a premium to CVS, so he would wait for some sort of pullback. If the Rite Aid deal falls through, he presumes Rite Aid shares would fall off, which would be a good time to purchase the stock.

Market. The political problem certainly adds to the basic uncertainty. It is Congress that is really going to decide what happens, not Trump. In the meantime, it adds a certain degree of confusion, as to who is in charge and which way they are going. If the US economy picks up to 3% plus, we are bound to benefit.

Where is the Cdn$-US$ relationship headed? He is a little concerned about the Cdn$, particularly in the environment that we are still facing on the negotiations of NAFTA. Thinks there is going to have to be some giving up on the dairy side. Expects that we will continue to see the loonie drift down. A low dollar is not a bad thing. He also hopes that Bank of Canada keeps our current interest rates and doesn’t follow the US with their June increase.

Banks or lifecos? Although they are both in the financial sector they are quite different animals. Right now, there is pressure on the banks, mainly coming out of the US. Sun Life (SLF-T) and Manulife (MFC-T) are both good companies. Yields are about the same. If you are interested in an investment, then he would say half and half.
