BUY MX-T Methanex Corp Market Call Tonight (BNN TV) 2014-12-17 $53.150

This has suffered from the perception that anything to do with petrochemicals is poison. The stock has taken a major nosedive and thinks it has been way oversold. Methanol is made out of natural gas, which is very inexpensive right now. While the price of methanol has come down, so has the price of input. Feels it is a very good entry point at this level.

TOP PICK NA-T National Bank of Canada Market Call Tonight (BNN TV) 2014-12-17 $47.210

Tremendously oversold, along with all the other Canadian banks. At today’s closing price, it is paying about a 4.2% yield and trading at around 9.5X of what he expects they will earn in 2015. Sold off because it has been computed that it has the largest exposure to the Canadian oil industry in its wholesale banking of any of the Canadian banks. He doesn’t see many Canadian oil companies going bankrupt in the next little while. Oil companies are cutting their dividends and cutting their CapX, but that doesn’t mean they are not paying their bank loans. This bank probably has less exposure on loans to oilfield workers and mortgages in Alberta, then the other Canadian banks.

COMMENT QCOM-Q Qualcomm Market Call (BNN TV) 2014-12-17 $72.210

Having trouble, not only with the Chinese license situation, but also with the Chinese government which is saying they have a monopoly. They are trying to weaken them. It’s a natural thing for governments to do. This is something that you just have to build into the normal course. Usually they negotiate their way out of these situations and it costs them some money, but long-term, the benefit of this company is that they do have a stranglehold on the chipset market for the smart phone market. This market, for the next 5-10 years, is expected to grow 15%-17% per year. A good story. The future is a little cloudy and this is why he diversifies.

PAST TOP PICK RYL-N Ryland Group Market Call (BNN TV) 2014-12-17 $37.100

(A Top Pick Jan 2/14. Down 15.56%.) He was early on this. Homebuilding and how the homebuilders did was very lumpy in 2014. We haven’t seen as much of a release in terms of credit as he thought we would. Homebuilders are still really tied up because it is really tough to qualify for a mortgage. It is still at only 1 million homes being formed in the US. Just to keep up with organic growth of population, we need 1.5 million. He is content to stay here and thinks he will be rewarded.

COMMENT S-T Sherritt International Corp. Market Call Tonight (BNN TV) 2014-12-17 $2.870

It took a while for Cuba to start opening up with the US. On today’s news, this stock went up over 25%. However, they are still not out of the woods. There is going to be tremendous opposition from the Republicans in Congress, particularly the 3 Republicans of Cuban-American heritage. It is far from clear whether Obama will have the clout, as a lame-duck president, to do what he really wants to do, which is to end the embargo. If he ends the embargo, then there can be trade between the 2 countries of all kinds of assets, and not just this opening salvo of $100 worth of cigars and a trip to a resort.

TOP PICK SU-T Suncor Energy Inc Market Call Tonight (BNN TV) 2014-12-17 $35.710

(A Top Pick Jan 9/14. Down 1.74%.) Had looked pretty good in the summer, but not so good now. When you play with commodities, this is what you have to live with. He likes this over all the other oil companies in Canada because it is vertically integrated. It not only has production, but also has refining and retailing. There are no exploration risks. Yield of 3.14%, which is not only sustainable, but might have room to go up.

COMMENT TCK.B-T Teck Resources Ltd. (B) Market Call Tonight (BNN TV) 2014-12-17 $14.410

In all of the commodities they produce, the prices have gone down, particularly for coal. The question is, is the dividend of 6.25% sustainable with commodity prices this low. When you see a company with a yield of over 5%, the market is probably telling you that the dividend is not sustainable. He doesn’t see commodity prices rising any time soon.

COMMENT TRI-T Thomson Reuters Corp Market Call Tonight (BNN TV) 2014-12-17 $46.020

Has had the best year in about a decade. If you own, you are just kind of breaking even after 10 years. This last year was the good year. He would think the low hanging fruit has been picked now. It is a very difficult area. There is so much content on the Internet and so much of it is free. Also, they are against a very formidable competitor in Bloomberg. He owns some of their bonds.

COMMENT TWTR-N Twitter, Inc Market Call Tonight (BNN TV) 2014-12-17 $35.570

Not a stock for the faint of heart and is still a speculative company, because it does not make money yet. Also, it is unclear as to how it is going to make money. If you can’t afford to lose the money, you should not be investing in companies like this.

DON'T BUY UPS-N United Parcel Services Market Call (BNN TV) 2014-12-17 $108.550

There are differences between this and FedEx (FDX-N). This company is more of a ground/domestic provider. FedEx is very much skewed to air freight. They said this morning that earnings were “bad”, but thinks that what really happens in a situation like this is that expectations are built in to a level, and if they fail to hit those expectations, they are characterized as “bad”. They had good growth and this is a good company. He tends not to buy these types of companies as they move into their sweet spot of the seasonal delivery time, because that is when they get the most attention and the premium build. He would tend to stay away from companies like this at this time. FedEx is probably the company he would go to, but not at this time.

HOLD UTX-N United Technologies Market Call (BNN TV) 2014-12-17 $113.900

A broad industrial. In the aerospace industry through Goodrich, which they bought 2-3 years ago. They own Pratt and Whitney and Sikorsky Helicopter. On the industrial side, they own Otis elevators and Lennox. This year hasn’t been great for them. Their CEO abruptly resigned. The other thing is China growth, which is causing him to look at this a little more closely. China is a big market for Otis and Lennox, and he is looking carefully to see if that growth is slowing and likely to continue to slow. A good core holding, but not a screaming buy.

COMMENT UTX-N United Technologies Market Call Tonight (BNN TV) 2014-12-17 $113.900

Has been looking at US heavy metal, and this is a diversified heavy industrial company. Traditionally, a lot of their business comes from capital expenditures by big companies. Since the recession in 2007, capital expenditures by major US companies has been very muted, because factories have been under capacity and there hasn’t been a great need to spend a lot of money. He is starting to see a change. As the US economy accelerates, which is what we are seeing, and as employment expands, he is starting to see more CapX, which is very positive for this company. Maybe it’s not a bad time to start thinking about getting back in.

COMMENT VZ-N Verizon Communications Market Call (BNN TV) 2014-12-17 $46.440

This is a company that interests him somewhat. Likes that they bought out Vodafone’s portion of the wireless business. It was $130 billion acquisition, and immediately accretive. Not an expensive stock and pays a very fine dividend. (N.B. Dividends from US corporations are treated something like interest income and are fully taxable.) The most recent news was kind of disturbing in that they were having margin problems and troubles from a competitive standpoint in maintaining their pricing model.

COMMENT WJA-T Westjet Airlines Market Call Tonight (BNN TV) 2014-12-17 $32.320

Airlines right now are going to benefit from lower jet fuel prices, which is one of their major inputs. The other 2 major costs for airlines are leasing their planes and labour costs. This company has most of its fleet lease off its balance sheet. Right now he would say this is probably the most profitable period we have seen for world airlines in recent memory. However, he will not give up his pledge to never buy airline stocks.

DON'T BUY WMT-N Wal-Mart Stores Inc. Market Call (BNN TV) 2014-12-17 $84.230

Looked at this a while ago and came away thinking it is a company that is likely to do a little better into the future, but with the recent spike in price, that is probably priced in. This is a beneficiary of lower oil prices as it would lead people to spend some of their savings. The thing he has always worried about is that a very large percentage of their sales are based on groceries, a very low margin and tough business.

N/A A Commentary A Comment -- General Comments From an Expert Market Call (BNN TV) 2014-12-16 $0.020

Markets.  He is not resource heavy and on purpose.  You don’t control the price of your product in those businesses.  Prefers to keep volatility of portfolios low.  He owns some oil-related stocks.  He has been worried about a global economic slowdown for many years, but did not see the oil glut coming.  Oil is the ultimate self-correcting commodity.  Spigots get turned off and have to be turned on very quickly.  This is temporary situation and will come roaring back.  It will take some time to stabilize over the next 6 months to a year.  Investors need to take extra risks.  There are some bargains.  You have to look at companies with temporary problems.  Dividends are very important as we will stay in a low interest rate environment.

N/A A Commentary A Comment -- General Comments From an Expert Market Call Tonight (BNN TV) 2014-12-16 $0.020

Markets. The magnitude of the change in oil is not the big issue. The issue is the speed at which it happened. It is not difficult just for investors, but also for the big companies with their capital budgets, currency forecasts. It has all changed so quickly and so fast that it causes a lot of dislocation and a lot of anxiety. As a result you get a lot of volatility in the market. We don’t know exactly how this is all going to unravel. Everybody’s exposure to Russia is much less than it was in 1998. However, ramifications of what happens in Russia can spill over into the European banks, and you never know what connections that has to Brazilian enterprise, whether or not a company has to make a margin call and do it from a healthy enterprise in Brazil to a very unhealthy enterprise in Russia. This is a very scary time for investors and they have to be looking at their portfolios and figuring out how to prepare for it. He understands that US banks’ exposure to Russia is less than a half a percent. We will probably wake up to something Putin has announced in the middle of the night and it will be something pretty dramatic. Investors need to build some themes and the need to take a look at them. He looked back and figured that China was not a big capital building economy anymore, it was turning into a consumer driven and export driven economy. He then figured that it did not look all that promising for oil, iron ore, etc. Because of that, whenever he was constructing a portfolio, he was keeping it a little bit lighter on commodities and cyclicals, especially in Canada.

N/A A Commentary A Comment -- General Comments From an Expert Market Call Tonight (BNN TV) 2014-12-16 $0.020

Banks. Canadian banks have pulled back recently because earnings were a little less than exciting. As a Canadian investor, you have to be really leery of somebody on television telling you to get rid of your Canadian banks. Royal (RY-T), Toronto Dominion (TD-T) and Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS-T) are really good core holdings. If interest rates go up, although he doesn’t think they’re going to go up a lot, this would be very good for Canadian banks. However, Canadian banks have a lot more exposure to the domestic Canadian economy. CIBC (CM-T) is the most exposed and TD and Scotia would be the least exposed. US banks, in relation to Canadian banks are going to look more attractive right now. It doesn’t matter what you do, money will probably leave Canadian banks, because a lot of US investors have been hiding in Canadian banks, and they are probably going to flow out into some of the US names.

Canadian-based ETF’s that follow the US S&P 500? Believes the S&P 500 will outperform the TSX, and has been his view for some time. As investors, we are really fortunate with the competition that has occurred in the space. You have to decide whether you want to be exposed in Cdn$’s or US$’s. He would argue that you should split your money into hedged and unhedged. Believes the Vanguard S&P 500 might be the cheapest.

COMMENT ACQ-T AutoCanada Inc. Market Call Tonight (BNN TV) 2014-12-16 $39.960

Stock price has done extremely well, but has probably got a little ahead of itself. Everybody is now asking about their exposure to Western Canada. It is quite a bit. Feels the recent fall is because it rose too fast and too quickly. Probably trading at a pretty fair valuation now. He likes what they are doing, but keep in mind that any of these consolidation plays eventually run out of steam and don’t always end well. The trend of a family owned dealership looking for an exit strategy, probably has another good 5 or 6 years. Definitely interested in getting back into this when he has cash available to do so.

Cut their dividend by about 70%, which was a big surprise; because that was the only thing investors seemed to have with this company. If you own, you are left with a company that is in decline, its assets (net sales) he believes are in decline. Fundamentals and price trends have not been attractive to him.

Trading at 17X earnings, which is a real deal when compared to the market which is trading at 16X earnings, and trading at a much slower rate. He really likes this company.

Held since the merger.  Losers merged to make a massive money maker.  Stock came down when they paid a special dividend.  2.6 Million subscribers, recurring revenue, hardly any cap x.  Cash flow multiples are 50-70% more than it is trading at.  Number of cars equipped to receive the signal is growing dramatically.  Very cheap right now.

COMMENT ZIN-T BMO S&P/TSX Eq. Wt. Industrials Market Call Tonight (BNN TV) 2014-12-16 $20.540

Canadian industrials. He would be interested in this space as long as you take a really good look at what the energy exposure is. Now that the Cdn$ is lower, there is a lot of tailwind with a lot of these names. You’ll find a lot of transportation names, such as West Jet. There is probably a lot of exposure on the outside of the oil patch, which would be interesting. He would be interested in owning this ETF.

BUY ZWU-T BMO Covered Call Utilities ETF Market Call Tonight (BNN TV) 2014-12-16 $14.700

Has been a good name to own. The Covered Call nature helps mitigate an “interest rate hike” risk. The only concern that he has is that it is about 35% energy, and that is always going to cause a little bit of grief. Believes this has both Canadian and US exposure, and this is probably a good entry point.
