2014-08-22 TOP PICK Cardinal-Energy-Ltd
CJ-T
Jeff Young

Medium to heavy oil. This is a smaller and newer company, but one that is set up very well for the dividend plus growth model. Have no debt, which is unique for an oil/gas company. They focus on very, very low decline rate oil properties. Thinks their decline rate is around 13%, whereas the majority of the dividend oil/gas players is around 25%-30%. Having no debt makes them much more able to go through a downturn. Yield of 4.33%.

2014-08-22 TOP PICK 1stTr-ISE-Natural-Gas-E.T.F.
FCG-N
Don Vialoux

The price of Nat Gas has been flat the last 8 weeks.  A break above $4.02 would complete the pattern.  Until the third week in December the price goes higher for Nat Gas stocks.  This is an ETF of gassy stocks.  We aren`t at the end of August yet, but we are awfully close.

MFC-T
Jeff Young

In terms of valuation versus growth prospects, he feels this is a better option over Sun Life (SLF-T). It’s a very encouraging sign that they have raised their dividend. This means they are comfortable with their business outlook and their capital position. Yield of 2.79%.

2014-08-22 TOP PICK Peyto-Exploration--and--Develop.
PEY-T
Jeff Young

Very high quality company and basically the low cost producer in Western Canada. There has been a little check back in the price of gas, which we don’t normally get. This is one you typically buy on pullbacks. Good dividend per share growth. All their lines are very concentrated and they own the infrastructure along with the land, so they have the ability to participate in the upside, but it takes longer for natural gas to work out. A low cost producer so can survive the downturns. Could see this at $45 with stronger gas prices in the winter.

SOIL-N
Don Vialoux

Not doing well until now, but forming a base.  Grain prices are showing signs of bottoming.  Ag stocks are also showing signs of bottoming.  Around this time of year they go up sharply.  Keep an eye on it and get out when it`s done.

URA-N
Don Vialoux

Special for retail investors.  Around this time of year it will start to outperform the market.  Technicals are just starting to show a positive trend.  Own between now and the end of the year.  Look for something else in January.  Price of Uranium popped about two weeks ago.  This is getting set up for a good trade.

Greatest tanker fleet and in shipping of all the commodities.  A good dividend.  It has downtime in the winter.  They might get to a higher level shortly due to a partial fleet modernization.

BB-T
Michael Smedley

Speculative.  The stock has held relatively well.  He is particularly fascinated by Mr. Chen.  He goes in directions that will work.  They still possess certain supremacy in the area of security.  The consumer space is lost.  BB has moved on now.  Losses are falling.  It now just seems to make sense.

They have a technology for coating/protecting pipes. Trading at about 15X earnings. Management is very excited about their book building. Have quite a backlog. He thinks earnings will accelerate in the future, which would drive the stock price higher.

ATD.B-T
Veronika Hirsch

Rumoured to be interested in acquiring China’s Sinopec, but it would be a very odd thing for them to do. They are conservative acquisitors. They do have an acquisition strategy, which they have been employing, and which seems to be paying off. Last year they entered Europe, and from what she understands, are now going to consolidate in Northern Europe. They are not crazy about Southern Europe. This should allow for many more years of growth. Yield of 0.52%.

Historically this company had been missing their quarters, but now are growing by acquisition. Concentrating on labels that are high quality ones where there’s not too much competition. This would be into wines, pharmaceuticals and much higher design and colours, etc. yield of 1.04%.
