BUY on WEAKNESS SIS-T Savaria Corp Market Call (BNN TV) 2017-03-22 $12.280

One of his biggest positions. A great company. Manufactures accessibility equipment such as stair lifts, home elevators, ramps, vehicle conversions, etc. It is the only investable company on the TSX that gives you exposure to the sector. Very well-managed. The stock is a little pricey, but you are paying for the scarcity value.

BUY SJR.B-T Shaw Communication (B) Market Call (BNN TV) 2017-03-22 $27.090

Probably a decent buy right now. He’s been looking at this very carefully for the last 6 months, waiting for the right moment. You have to track their subscriber losses. They are locked in a battle in Western Canada with Telus (T-T), and are having to reinvest a lot of capital into getting the Wind Mobile Sutherland network up to snuff. A good investment for a long-term. You are getting a good yield while waiting for things to stabilize.

HOLD STB-T Student Transport of America Ltd. Market Call (BNN TV) 2017-03-22 $7.500

An extremely well-managed company. A tough industry with very low growth and a lot of competition. Management is using technology to their advantage to increase efficiencies. They are winning a lot of contracts and reinvesting a lot in the fleet. Doesn’t expect a lot of organic growth, or winning contracts from competition. Attractive dividend yield. He owns the convertible debentures.

An extremely well-managed company. One of the best CEOs in Canada. A great business. He would be buying this in the low $40s.

PAST TOP PICK TPK-T Ten Peaks Coffee Co Market Call (BNN TV) 2017-03-22 $6.630

(A Top Pick March 22/16. Down 27%.) Got a little ahead of itself. Last week they came out with record 4th quarter results after some lumpiness through the year, caused by delays in orders by clients. Came out with a solid $.46 EPS for the year under the new accounting standards, which really measures the true profitability of the company. There are high barriers to entry. The only global company that can process 100% organic, chemical free, decaffeinated coffee. They are now exporting all over the world.

TOP PICK VSN-T Veresen Inc Market Call (BNN TV) 2017-03-22 $13.690

He likes energy infrastructure pipelines and midstream. They are like toll booths and are worth a lot of money. This one is very much misunderstood. Everyone thought they were going to cut the dividend over the last few years. This is the old Port Chicago, which basically owned 50% of the Alliance pipeline with Enbridge, but the company has been radically transformed over the last 3-4 years, and is now a premier gas infrastructure play. One of the cheaper companies in the sector. Dividend yield of 7.4%. (Analysts’ price target is $16.)

N/A A Commentary A Comment -- General Comments From an Expert Market Call (BNN TV) 2017-03-21 $0.020

Market. This is an expensive market. Of course, valuation is not necessarily a timing tool, but you do have to keep your seatbelt fastened. The market is up 10% since election day, up 15%-16% just in the last year. PEs are the highest they have been since the dot.com bubble. Dividend yields are trying to hold on to the 2% level, so by that level, things are pricey. We are in a situation where interest rates are going up. The Fed has hiked 3 times, and have promised to hike twice more this year. Higher interest rates are never a positive for the market. People have to be cautious here. Short-term traders are looking at what is going on in Washington. The market has grown like a bat out of hell since election day, on the hopes and prospects of very progressive policies from the new administration. However, that is not a slam-dunk, as the Republicans are not united. A lot of strategists are now looking at what is going on with Obamacare. If they feel the Republicans, who did not support Obamacare, are not able to repeal it, what does that mean for Trump’s success in getting the rest of his progress policies enacted anytime soon?

N/A A Commentary A Comment -- General Comments From an Expert Market Call Tonight (BNN TV) 2017-03-21 $0.020

Market. We are in a bull market. When corrections come in a bull market, they are swift and can be painful for a few days, but are generally over pretty quickly. People have made a big deal about not having a 1% down move in over 100 days. If you look at history, this has happened about 10 times over the last 30 years, and the returns that came 3 months, 6 months, 9 months afterwards were way above average. When you have long periods of time when volatility has been low as it has been, and then you have that 1% day, people tend to think of it as a shakeout. The most difficult thing in a bull market is to stay positioned. As a market analyst, from a whole bunch of different angles, the market continues to look very constructive, and it would be healthy to have a few sloppy days. The key themes that are in this market, are firmly in place. In Canada, about 50% of stocks are in long-term positive uptrends that has been slowly rising. In the US, it is about 66%. In the last 2 months, when the market has been treading water, the average hedge fund has gone from 110% to 115% Long to 80% Long indicating there has been tremendous profit taking over the last 2 months. This tells you how strong the bid is under the market because there has been really no downside.

Energy. He got quite bullish on energy in Jan/Feb 2016 as breadth started to improve. In the last 6 weeks, breadth for the energy sector started to contract. Oil consolidated sideways for a couple of months. In energy, in almost all cases, they break down from there. You are facing a big headwind at the sector level. Fracing has made energy a mass manufacturer. That is why production of oil in the US is up 700,000 barrels since last February, and storage is at an all-time high. If you want to be in energy, which is a tough space right now, you want to be in a low-cost producer that will be able to take share. He owns virtually no energy.

US defence stocks for a long-term hold? Defence is a theme he has been focused on for a couple of years. We have been coming off multiyear lows in growth in defence spending. There is going to be more defence spending going forward. He likes that the contracts are really long term and have a pretty good credit behind them. Also, it is the only type of company that never talks about what is coming next. Raytheon (RTN-N), General Dynamics (GD-N) and Lockheed Martin (LMT-N) are very attractive.

North American rails and Hunter Harrison? Transports were the 1st group to roll over in the spring of 2015, and one of the 1st groups to turn up in February in 2016 as the market started to repair itself. They’ve gotten a little sloppy recently. Within the group, you have the airlines, and a couple of the US airlines have gotten a little sloppy. There are a couple of rails that have become sloppier. When he looks at the group, Canadian National (CNR-T) is probably the most attractive, and looks very, very good. CSX (CSX-Q) has been the leader in the rally, and in the short run it may have been based on “buy the rumour, sell the news”, and is now pulling back, possibly to $38-$39.

BUY on WEAKNESS AAPL-Q Apple Market Call Tonight (BNN TV) 2017-03-21 $139.840

This has been in the middle of a great run. The tendency is for this to run up into a large product cycle, which is coming via the new iPhone. In the short term, it is probably a little overbought. He likes the Tech space as a whole. This company continues to dominate with its products. Would prefer to see it pull back to their moving average of $132-$135.

David Burrows NORTH AMERICAN - LARGE BULLISH Yes View
BUY ABT-N Abbott Labs Market Call (BNN TV) 2017-03-21 $44.800

This fits the profile of the type of company he would want to be adding to, on days like today. It is in the sector that is tremendously out of favour. The healthcare sector was the only sector that had a negative return last year. It has started to be a little more resilient this year, but relative to the history of healthcare, valuations are far more reasonable. He likes this because it has a history and a culture of growing the dividend. They have a wonderful brand name. 2.4% dividend yield.

TOP PICK ADBE-Q Adobe Systems Market Call Tonight (BNN TV) 2017-03-21 $125.070

The two most important themes and most resilient in this market are technology and financials. Semiconductors look great. Software looks great. This company fits in a couple of key themes. They were the original big software company to go to the Cloud, selling their software by subscription. Today, 82% of revenue comes as a subscription. That is really attractive, because it is pretty predictable. Not only that, but revenues are growing very, very nicely. Revenues were up 22% in this most recent quarter. They should be able to grow revenue at 20% for quite some time, but because they make it and sell it a lot of times, as they grow their revenue, the margins go up. Their margins went to 36% from 31%, and the earnings went up 42%. Not an inexpensive stock, but the leader in software for Digital media, and we are all consuming quite a lot of Digital media. (Analysts’ price target is $143.50.)

TOP PICK AIG-N American International Group Market Call (BNN TV) 2017-03-21 $61.760

He is looking for market-leading companies that are in sectors out of favour, and either have very strong dividends or some sort of catalyst that will unlock value. Mr. Icahn has taken a position and he knows value, will perhaps break it apart with the sum of the parts being worth more than the whole. (Analysts’ price target is $70.)

TOP PICK ALB-N Albemarle Corp Market Call Tonight (BNN TV) 2017-03-21 $104.250

The dominant player in lithium. He believes we are going to continue to see movement to electric cars. The company makes both types of lithium that go into all the major batteries that are being sold. They’ll triple production over the next 5 years. Model 3 is about to come from Tesla. They are becoming mass market and as you run into the beginning of a mine production, share prices tend to do well. It has twice the margin that Tesla will ever have. This will be a growth stock for many years, and they think they can maintain 50% of the market. Dividend yield of 1.2%. (Analysts’ price target is $115.00.)

COMMENT BAC-N Bank of America Market Call (BNN TV) 2017-03-21 $23.020

Bank of America (BAC-N) or Wells Fargo (WFC-N)? Both are large US banks, so are going to have more in common than in disparities. It is hard to see one going dramatically in one direction and one going in the other direction. They are both going to be interest rate and economically sensitive. If interest rates move higher, margins are going to improve and will benefit both companies. However, he has a slight preference for this bank because of valuation. When looking at BV, this one is dramatically cheaper at about 1.2X.

TOP PICK BAC-N Bank of America Market Call Tonight (BNN TV) 2017-03-21 $23.020

Trading at 1X BV and the multiple of Book is expanding. They have multiple drivers. They’ve been cutting costs which has been going on for quite some time. They are getting higher interest rates, giving $600 million of additional revenue last quarter from their net interest margins. They win if there is less regulation. They win if there is economic growth, which they are getting. They win if they can return more capital by way of dividends, which they are now allowed to do. Dividend yield of 1.2%. (Analysts’ price target is $26.)

BUY on WEAKNESS CAR-Q Avis Budget Group Market Call (BNN TV) 2017-03-21 $29.550

All the rental car companies are extremely volatile. They tend to be small. A lot of the spending that goes there is very cyclical. No one has to rent a car. They are also up against Uber. However, the companies are cheap and just crying out for consolidation. On pullbacks, he would add to positions.

BUY CCL.B-T CCL Industries (B) Market Call Tonight (BNN TV) 2017-03-21 $288.500

A great company. It has been a wonderful company to be invested in for years and years. It is difficult sometimes for institutions, because it is not the most liquid stock on the board. It is a cash flow machine. They take the cash and they make acquisitions in what is quite a fragmented industry. There are lots and lots of companies that they can buy. Their acquisition in India is quite interesting.

COMMENT COF-N Capital One Financial Corp Market Call (BNN TV) 2017-03-21 $83.650

You have to start with a top-down analysis. Do you like financials? He can make a great case that financials will be much higher 5-10 years down the road. Remember, this is one sector that has never come back from the peaks that they held before the 2008 subprime crisis, so valuations generally are low. Also, it is one of the few groups that can benefit from higher interest rates. He feels this one has an excellent franchise. They are with the credit cards which is a growing way people pay worldwide. They also have some great individual banks.

COMMENT CSCO-Q Cisco Market Call Tonight (BNN TV) 2017-03-21 $33.880

He is thematically focused, and tries to find themes where something is changing for the better, where investors can make returns and get a multiple expansion in the stocks they own. A key theme in this market are some of the large cap technology stocks that generate tons of cash, and return some to shareholders. This one generates a free cash flow yield of about 7%. Pays a 3.4% dividend, and has been growing it north of 15%, and likely will for the next 5 years. Generates a lot of cash and their commitment is to return 50% of that to shareholders. This is the supplier of gear that is connecting all the Cloud infrastructure together, and that is not slowing down anytime soon.

TOP PICK CVX-N Chevron Texaco Market Call (BNN TV) 2017-03-21 $108.040

He is looking for market-leading companies that are in sectors out of favour, and either have very strong dividends or some sort of catalyst that will unlock value. This one meets all that criteria. Oil has dropped over $100 a barrel, down to about $26, and then moved up now to just below $50. As a result, companies are still shutting in production as opposed to expanding, until supply/demand come back into sync. This is a great way to play that. No matter what happens, this company is dedicated to holding up their 4% dividend yield. Also, they have already made a lot of investments such as Indonesia, so CapX is going to be further reduced, and will be able to grow their free cash flow going forward. (Analysts’ price target is $126.50.)

BUY DEO-N Diageo PLC Market Call Tonight (BNN TV) 2017-03-21 $116.640

Consumer staples, as a group, have been a little sloppy over the last number of months. Some of the more economically sensitive sectors were behaving a little better. This company has a wonderful portfolio of various brands for alcohol, and has been lifting quite nicely since December. A European company and European markets have been behaving much better. Breadth is expanding there as well as in the US. This is a leading stock within the group, so he doesn’t think you are going to get hurt.

COMMENT FIT-N Fitbit Inc Market Call (BNN TV) 2017-03-21 $5.600

Your classic, skyrocketing tech stock. It opened up significantly higher than its offering price. It has now reversed course and is down in the dungeons. Whenever you have a company that has a product, as opposed to a service, you get a one-time revenue but you don’t have recurring revenues. The stock is so cheap, that may be one of the larger tech players will pick it up and try to grow it. It might be an interesting speculative play for those that have a strong risk appetite.

PAST TOP PICK FNV-T Franco-Nevada Corp. Market Call Tonight (BNN TV) 2017-03-21 $87.560

(A Top Pick March 15/16. Up 9%.) He has to be a little careful, because he is not a huge Bull on precious metals. There was a very good trade in precious metals in 2016, and it kind of ran out of gas. This is a chicken way to invest in gold, because they get royalties. A great business model, because they just reap revenue as companies produce, and it doesn’t matter if the companies are making money or not.

DON'T BUY GRPN-Q Groupon, Inc Market Call (BNN TV) 2017-03-21 $3.900

This is an enigma wrapped up in a riddle. The stock is now at one third of where it peaked at. It is trading at just 70% of sales, so it looks appetizing. For them to continue to grow their business, it is going to require a lot more spending, and he is still not convinced it is the type of business where competitors cannot come in at will.

TOP PICK GSK-N GlaxoSmithKline PLC Market Call (BNN TV) 2017-03-21 $42.320

He is looking for market-leading companies that are in sectors out of favour, and either have very strong dividends or some sort of catalyst that will unlock value. With markets just off all-time highs, he is looking for defensive plays, not one trick biotech ponies, but ones that have a whole array of meds. This is one of the leaders in therapeutic vaccines, various compounds and strong research development. Also, it has the European tarnish and lower valuation, but their business is outside of that area with about 50% in emerging markets and 25% in North America. A dividend well north of 4%. (Analysts’ price target is $48.)

HOLD IBM-N IBM Market Call (BNN TV) 2017-03-21 $173.880

This is so big and diversified that even if they are not successful in one area of the tech business, they have other areas. He likes the shift they are making towards artificial intelligence, towards more cloud services, and reducing emphasis on the legacy dinosaur mainframes. They are moving with the trend, but you are not having to pay up for it. One of the cheapest companies in the Tech universe, at about 12X earnings with a dividend of 3%+.

BUY JNJ-N Johnson & Johnson Market Call Tonight (BNN TV) 2017-03-21 $127.250

The pharmaceutical group rolled over in the midwinter of 2015, as Hillary was making her comments about drug companies, so the group was under pressure significantly right through until the end of 2016. What is interesting is that there are new sectors that are starting to kick in gear, and one of them has been healthcare, pharmaceuticals, biotech and healthcare devices. This one looks great. It just made a new high and pulled back a couple of dollars. It is one of the leading stocks in the group. It gives you a nice yield. Expects there are a lot of refugees from the bond market that will be pulling money out as interest rates go higher, and will be looking for companies that can generate a steady stream of growing dividends. This company fits that bill.

COMMENT LMT-N Lockheed Martin Market Call (BNN TV) 2017-03-21 $269.000

A US defence name? Some of the best companies in the US are in this area. His particular favourite is this one. Really a tech stock in disguise. People think they are just focused on providing US armaments to the US government, but it is far more than that. They are supplying armaments to overseas governments, and have a significant private sector business as well with high-tech, aviation, etc. However, he would be cautious at the current valuation.

BUY MAT-Q Mattel Market Call (BNN TV) 2017-03-21 $24.960

He is buying this for some of his clients. Originally he initiated positions down around $20, saw it rise nicely into the upper $30s and it is now in the mid-$20s. The recent disappointing quarter gave this enough of a pullback to give him a good entry point. For the long-term, he sees an enduring franchise in their toy business. They are expanding the brand so that you have a doll that can handle just about any kind of social group that a child might want. A $30 price target seems reasonable to him.

BUY MFC-T Manulife Financial Market Call Tonight (BNN TV) 2017-03-21 $23.040

He thinks the long-term theme is higher interest rates and better equity markets. Both these things are great for insurance companies. This looks really great. It got a little extended, so it could pull back a couple of more dollars. A great long-term hold.

COMMENT MRE-T Martinrea Market Call Tonight (BNN TV) 2017-03-21 $9.630

In general, the US consumer is in pretty good shape. There has been a lot of concern in the last year that we are looking at possible peak auto for the cycle. It doesn’t look like that is the case, but auto parts companies and auto makers had a difficult time. The group that people were focused on within that sector were the auto parts retailers. In the last 2-3 months, the auto parts companies and some of the OEMs have started to come on. However, we do face a risk of some kind of border adjustment tax, and that could be risky for Canadian producers. He would prefer something like Delphi Automotive (DLPH-N).

This has been moving sideways for a while, although its last earnings report beat the street, and the stock popped up a little. There is more room to come. They are transitioning into Cloud very successfully, and as we increasingly use mobile devices, all the storage is up there in space. One of the few tech firms that can successfully acquire other companies. Has a very strong track record of folding other companies in, merging the culture and making money out of them.

The whole energy complex is falling today. There are concerns that people priced in too much growth in some of the pro-growth policies Mr. Trump wants to push, which are going to come later and more diluted. However, this is a survivor in energy and is the go-to company when it comes to deep-water drilling. Energy prices are still too cheap, and over the long haul they are going to drift higher, and this company will be a beneficiary. You could use pullbacks like this to add to your position.

HOLD SAN-N Banco Santander SA Market Call (BNN TV) 2017-03-21 $6.000

A frustrating holding, but over the long haul, it is worth hanging in. Stocks based overseas, as a general proposition, have a lower valuation. Although Spanish based, it operates worldwide. Has a lot of operations in Mexico, US, Latin America and elsewhere in Europe. Valuation is very, very cheap. If you feel Europe can get out of its malaise and not disintegrate and people will gravitate back outside of the US for investment opportunities, then you are going to enjoy some dividends in the meantime, and this bank is a great way to play that trend. Dividend yield of 3.9%.

This group is best helped by rising interest rates. There was an inflection point in interest rates last June, which was ultimately a 30-year low, and over the next number of years we slowly see rates go higher. Given a choice of Canada versus the US, you may be in a better spot with US banks, which are very inexpensive. He would have a look at something like J.P. Morgan (JPM-N) which had a nice pullback in the last few days, or look at one of the investment banks like Morgan Stanley (MS-N). However, you will also be fine with this bank. (See Top Picks.)

He is not adding to his holdings right now. The industry leader in terms of health insurance. The time when he really backed up the truck was in the early part of Mr. Obama’s administration when stocks were just begging to be picked up off the sidewalks. Since then, this company has done extremely well. For your healthcare exposure, he would be looking at the more traditional companies such as Abbott Labs, Pfizer’s, Merck’s, GlaxoSmithKline’s.

This is a huge problem child. Some of their drugs and compounds are worth a lot of money. He likes that sentiment has gotten so negative. Sometimes, when you have some enduring products, it is time to take a position as part of a diversified portfolio. Likes the new management.

When a sector gets crushed the overwhelming sentiment is to go back and look for the money that you feel it owes you. A lot of people jumped right back into the energy stocks in Jan-Feb. The history is, unless you get significant restructuring, it is likely there is going to be some indigestion after 12-14 months. That looks like what we are getting.

G20 Statement. Although tepid, he thinks they are supporting free trade, but probably under a lot of duress from the first real official global meeting with the Trump policy being pushed towards the world. The US is the biggest economy in the world, so what they want tends to typically happen. This is why markets were concerned about the anti-trade, and the original reason why futures market sold off aggressively the night of the election. It is concerning. However, it is not measured in weeks and days or the next tick on the chart; it is a long-term strategic policy. While he is very optimistic and bullish on the need for lower taxes overall, he is concerned about the lack of trade. However, we have seen slower trade globally. Looking at the Baltic Dry Index and the freight rates that are being charged, they have been in a slow decline for years, so it is not anything new. If the biggest economy, the US, is not participating, there will be less trade globally. The US has a surplus against Canada and are not really fighting us, but they’ve made strong statements on softwood lumber as an example. They have a deficit against Mexico, which is where they want to improve and bring stuff and make America great again, and America 1st. We are going to see lots of this for years to come.

Crude oil. He is not bearish in that we are going back to the $20s, but he wants to see what OPEC is going to do. There is some compliance, but it is Saudi Arabia that is more compliant than a lot of the other partners. There is some weakness in OPEC, which is what he expected. Oil shouldn’t be at $55, but should probably be closer to $45.

BREXIT. The biggest thing from their perspective is, what does Scotland do. Scotland wants to hold a referendum in late 2018 or early 2019. Once they go through the two-year period of the negotiations to either stay or not stay, it is a mess. We haven’t felt one iota of economic impact in terms of trade, etc., and we probably won’t know for a year, or maybe 2, on how this plays out. It does speak to the fact that the UK and the EU doesn’t work, and eventually it is going to start coming apart. This is just the beginning.

Sectors with the best value right now? A couple of weeks ago, low volatility areas had been underperforming significantly. Markets have been strong since the Trump election, up 10%, 15%, 20% depending on where you look and what sectors. Low volatility sectors like utilities, consumer staples have underperformed. Those sectors, right now, screen as cheap because they are much more defensive. What typically happens with fund managers, is when they are positive on the outlook for the market, they are investing in more cyclicals; whether consumer, industrial or technology, companies that are going to get much more of a beta lift when the markets are doing well. When the markets are expected to correct, they can’t go to cash, most managers have to stay fully invested. They sell their consumer cyclical and they buy a consumer staple; they sell their industrial and buy a health care; sell their financial and buy a utility. This takes down their beta or their sensitivity to the downside. The low volume sectors are somewhat attractive right now compared to some of the more cyclical sectors.

Sectors you like and dislike? Real estate is interest rate sensitive, so not his favourite right now. He is underweight. What is really cheap? A couple of days ago, gold was cheap and he was nibbling in this sector. However, if you are talking about a strategy for the long-term, the next 2, 3, 5 years, financials in the US are still pretty cheap. When he is tactical, and moving money around pretty actively, he is looking out 3 months, maybe 6. He has no idea what is going to happen 4 or 5 years from now.

Educational Segment: Long-Term Investing. This is on geopolitical and global macro, because a lot of global hedge funds macro views and look for themes in markets. This week, Canada has their budget. Global investors look at things like this and look for what is diverging and what is different, and is it good or bad compared to others. The US is cutting taxes, both corporate and personal, while Canada is raising taxes. Global money follows the flow of funds. Canada has net outflows on capital account, net outflows on current account, so we run trade deficits. There is less money coming into Canada so the global investors see that Canada is vulnerable and if they Short Canada as well as the currency, will the Bank of Canada raise rates? Investing in Canada has a lot to do with oil, and as oil goes, so goes the TSX.

If the budget is as bad as he thinks it is going to be, in terms of taxing capital and savings, you use inverse ETF’s. HBP 60 Inverse ETF (HIX-T) is an inverse play on the TSX 60. While Canada is somewhat cheap this year, it is only going to grow at 1.5% a year over the next 5 years, and only because they are borrowing money.

Markets. YOMO (Year of Missing Out) is a great description of the Toronto housing market, but we are also starting to get this in equity markets. Stocks are moving, but simply because everyone is afraid to Sell as you don’t want to miss out, and valuations are starting to get stretched, and no one wants to get out of equities because Donald Trump is going to solve all the world’s problems. We have seen this great interest rate increase, which is usually a sign of good times, but investors are already paying for the tax that is going to get cut, and we are already paying for the regulations that are going to get cut. If people’s expectations are not filled, they tend to get disappointed, and the next response is to Sell.

When will Canadian banks have stock splits? The time is close. Once they get over the $100-$120 level, it is probably time for a split. Splits don’t matter. They are just basically creating more shares at less price.

Zinc. Inventories are down and supply is limited. Chinese are shutting some capacity in, in terms of the refining of the raw metal. Zinc is on a roll. It has been tight, and will probably stay tight as mines have shut down. There is no reason the price cannot spike up to the $2 levels. The best 3 plays in Canada are Teck Resources (TECK.B-T), the world’s largest net zinc producer; Hudbay Minerals (HBM-T) an intermediate play; Trevali Mining (TV-T) a more junior company.

Canadian Banks? These are in a very enviable regulatory environment, having very few competitors. They have stable businesses, make a lot of money, pay good dividends with reasonable growth. Also, there is the issue of the housing market. If there was a significant correction in Vancouver and Toronto housing, that would hurt all the banks. These should be a core part of your portfolio.

Canadian Federal Budget. We’ve heard that there might be some tax increases coming, potentially in the capital market, which would not be encouraging. The government needs to raise money for some of the initiatives they have, especially with infrastructure building which is behind schedule. To the extent that they use the money to accelerate infrastructure building to encourage innovation, that would be a good thing.
