V-N
David Baskin

This company has a tremendous profit margin and a huge moat around its operations. It’s accepted around the world and keeps growing. Throws off cash like crazy. Yield of 0.72%, and there is huge room to grow the dividend.

2014-07-11 TOP PICK Capstone-Mining-Corp.
CS-T
Brian Huen

Copper. This is a producer that has underperformed recently as a result of people worrying about M&A activity, as well as worries of a core expansion operation in Arizona. Every time they have talked about M&A, and executed on it, they have done a great job of integrating those acquisitions. Trading at a discount to its peers.

2014-07-11 TOP PICK Michael-Kors-Holdings
KORS-N
Brian Huen

Phenomenal company. Believes people will continue to have an affinity to them. Recent pullback presents a buying opportunity. In the long term, they will continue to deliver double-digit growth. They have yet to really penetrate Asia and Europe, and that is where the next goal is. Trading at about 22X forward earnings. Believes they will continue to earn high double-digit growth. It will be hard to find another company in the Consumer Discretionary space that has the pricing power and the growth that this company has.

VXX-N
Don Vialoux

The key with the volatility index is that there are 2 ways of playing it. There is a speculative way, which is not recommended. Then there is the conservative way which is basically to buy the volatility index as portfolio protection. Seasonality on this is that it bottoms in the 1st week of July, and then goes higher right through until the middle of October.

2014-07-11 TOP PICK Yamana-Gold-Inc.
YRI-T
Brian Huen

This is a key opportunity to buy a name that is cheap, before it re-rates when it communicates with its partner Agnico Eagle (AEM-T) on how they are going to plan to grow and showcase the Malartic Mine. Also, produces copper.

2014-07-10 TOP PICK China-Oilfield-Services
2883-HK
Mark Grammer

A really good growth company. Have done a great job of slow and steady growth. They do offshore drilling in China, and China needs a lot of oil. Even if there is a slowdown in housing, there will still be a huge demand for oil. Trading on single-digit multiples with double-digit growth. Yield of 2.69%.

Really positive on the stock. The split is helpful. New phone and potential new products. Generally thinks it is due for a good refresh cycle. Great balance sheet.

2014-07-10 TOP PICK Adidas-AG
ADS-GR
Mark Grammer

They have the World Cup locked up because they are a sponsor for both Argentina and Germany. This has been down this last year, partly because of TailorMade, which has been weak. Also, had some difficulties in the US market. Nike has been gaining share. Thinks Adidas is in the cusp of turning around. TailorMade is bottoming out, and year-over-year numbers should start looking better. Reebok is another problem for them. They are focusing Reebok on CrossFit, and are getting really good traction on that. Sales from World Cup should boost revenues. Yield of 2.09%.

EFN-T
Zachary Curry

A leasing company. Did a US acquisition recently which he looks on favourably. Used a lot of equity to finance it, which puts their balance sheet in great shape, and potentially allows for a investment-grade credit rating going forward, which would lower their costs.

MS-N
Mark Grammer

This is still one of his top names in his growth fund. With their wealth management business, they have a great opportunity. Shift to a fee-based model should lead to more predictable earnings. Yield of 1.27%.

SPE-T
Zachary Curry

A good size intermediate player in the southeast Saskatchewan region. Recently made 2 acquisitions, and raised equity to finance it. Balance sheet is in superb shape with decimal 0.1 debt to cash flow. They should exit 2014 with 1.5 barrels. Good growth in production.
