Interest rate drop. How does this look with the new issues of banking preferreds, high-yield, corporate debt, etc. You are looking at much, much lower yields, but he thinks there is a limit there, but doesn’t know what it is.

Bonds. Canadian bonds went up something like 9% last year, but that was a rebound from a weak 2013. We actually had a negative return on the Canadian bond index in 2013, and people in the bond market had thought this was the end of the low interest rates that we saw in 2013. In 2014, we realized that tapering wasn’t a bad thing that everybody thought it was, so we had a really hard rally down again when interest rates dropped. 8.8% total return, on the Canadian bond index last year. He is overweight on the corporate bond markets, where spreads haven’t compressed yet.

What do “D+18” and “FF” mean in corporate bonds? FF is a “Fixed Floater”, which means the bond is fixed for a certain period of time, and after that time it begins to float. In Canada it is a rare for it to go past the fixed point. The D+18 means the company has the right to Call that bond at the Deposit Rate +18 basis points. This is usually quite a bit tighter than where the market usually trades the bond.

COMMENT BMO.PR.M-T Bank of Montreal (Preferred M) Market Call (BNN TV) 2015-01-23 $25.670

Preferred M’s? This is a reset, which went to reset in 2013. Started at a higher rate and then reset to a fixed rate at 3.39%. In this environment, it won’t reset again until 2018. The bad news on this is that he doesn’t think the bank would let it go to the next reset because of capital issues. This might be worth getting out of and then switching over to something else, perhaps insurance companies.

PAST TOP PICK BMO.PR.T-T Bank Of Montreal (Preferred) Market Call (BNN TV) 2015-01-23 $25.470

(A Top Pick Sept 8/14. Down 0.77%.) BMO Floating Rate Preferred Share Series 17. Shouldn’t be volatile except when the bank of Canada rate drops. It was up on the year, but as soon as the interest rate cut came in, it dropped. This was a defensive strategy for people who thought rates were going to go up. It is still a pretty good substitute for a Money Market type of return, plus you get the dividend tax credit.

COMMENT ENB.PR.Y-T Enbridge Inc Market Call (BNN TV) 2015-01-23 $22.020

This company is a very large part of the preferred share market in Canada, roughly about 10% of the market. Enbridge Inc has done a “drop down” procedure that a lot of energy companies are doing right now. They took about $17 billion in assets and dropped them down to their subsidiary income fund. This caught investors and credit rating agencies by surprise. The assets don’t go away. Right now there seems to be a little bit of risk as to whether they will continue this procedure, but he thinks they are fine and the company is going to recover.

Markets.  People wondered how low oil would go.  Now it is a case of how long oil will stay low (6 months?  A year?).  He thinks fundamentally it should be at $75.  It is a case of who is going to cut production and how soon.  He sees $80 by the end of 2015.  When he looks at the volatility of the cash flows in energy infrastructure he is surprised how low stocks have gone.  Thinks there are some good values here.  You are going to see decent growth coming out of the US.  But will they pull the rest of the world up or will the rest of the world pull them back into recession.  Follow cash flow streams to see where they come from and how well protected they are.  He can manage equity volatility, but tries not to speculate on currency risk.

Dividend is absolutely safe.  A nice stable business model.  CEO has a great track record and he thinks they will continue to grow out the business model.  The dividend could grow 8-10% over the next couple of years and cash flows will grow to support that.  They just did an equity raise to shore up the balance sheet.

Likes it.  Very high quality business, run by an exceptional management team.  They buy cheap depressed businesses and turn them around to sell at a profit.  Recent acquisition of telecom towers in France will fit well.  The dividend could grow at 10% for a total 15% yield.  They do well when the markets are in turmoil because they buy distressed businesses.

They raised their 2015 dividend guidance and the market is not giving them credit for it.  They are a US based pipeline company.  They are exposed to more commodity volatility than peers, but they do a great job of managing it.  Thinks they are being excessively punished.  They raised their guidance for 2015.  In Canada there are complications in owning this.

TOP PICK 6930-JP Nippon Antenna Market Call Tonight (BNN TV) 2014-11-04 $0.000

This profitable specialty company that makes antennas, is not just trading at around 10X earnings with a 3.2% dividend yield, but is truly trading for less than its net cash. If they shut it down today and just distributed the cash and gave the company a way, you would still have a profit.

Update on your Value Japanese investments? Japan remains the cheapest market in the developed world, even in emerging markets. He has always liked that Japanese companies have very low debt levels, often zero debt. Fantastic corporate governance. CEOs are not motivated by stock options, but are motivated to build a better company to hand off to the next CEO. They have so many great engineering companies that are best in the world of what they do that no one has ever heard of before, because they are not consumer product companies.

Considers this as a deep value investment, and it has done well. An insurance company with significant assets in the US as well. They suffered a little because of the Dutch housing market which has not recovered yet. However, the worst is over for them and is selling at a discount to BV.

An American insurance company, whose major business has been in Japan for decades. Incredibly well-run. It amazes him that a US company has been able to succeed in a different culture for so long. A weaker yen hurts this company, but doesn't think this will have a huge impact on the stock price. Not a cheap stock and they could be running into some short-term earnings issues, which could cause earnings to decline, probably due to currency.

Cutting 1500 jobs. That always disturbs him when he sees a very profitable company chopping jobs, possibly for shorter-term reasons. This is a great franchise like all Canadian banks, plus they have their operations in Latin America and the Caribbean. They seem to have run into some issues in some of those places. Canadian banking sector is the most expensive globally on a price to book valuation. Dividend is rock solid. In a strong financial condition. He wouldn't look at this unless there was a pullback.

This is not the 15% earnings grower that it was. It is more of a 6%-8% earnings grower. However, they have $30 billion net of all debt which they are aggressively using to buy back shares and raise their healthy dividend of around 3%. They remain #1 in the world in their major industry sectors, which are growth sectors. He is looking for earnings to grow in a 6%-8% range in the next couple of years.

They have chosen a couple of specialty areas to do that in, including handling back-office transactions for investment firms and the like, and are also the largest custodian for certain types of investment firms in Canada. Thinks they are pretty well positioned. However, they don't have the scope and scale of the rest of the banking sector, which would be somewhat of a risk because they are Québec-based and are dependent on the Québec economy. A well-run institution. Meets all of his criteria if the stock gets cheap enough.

A big, global, energy company with good natural gas exposure. Natural gas prices are terrible in Canada but are much better in Europe, and it is a much more profitable business. A vertically integrated company so they are in the refining business as well, which has been a good place to be. Huge cash flow generation. A company this strong can take advantage of a very weak sector, because they will be a net acquirer of very cheap assets that other companies not financially sound will be forced to sell. 5.3% dividend yield.

Investing. He tends to do his investing bottom-up. Rates continue to drive a lot of the valuations in utilities and energy infrastructure, so he continues to pay attention to the high-level macro.

Utilities. Have had a pretty good start into the 1st half which has really been a function of declining bond yields. Feels this caught investors by surprise. Rates will likely back up into the 2nd half, but at a slow and moderate pace.
