Markets.  Markets never continue to go in one direction.  We often get a Christmas rally and the January affect.  Once people realize that many of Donald’s polices don’t make a lot of sense the markets may reverse themselves.  If you invest a lot in infrastructure, where do you get the labour from when you have low unemployment rates, what if you kick out a lot of Mexicans from the US.

Bank outside of Canada recommendation.  Most of them have moved up so far.  He still likes First US Bank Shares (FUSB-Q).  He can see it doubling from here.  It is based in Alabama.  Otherwise he is taking money off the table in this sector.

Cannabis Stocks.  He needs companies to be in business for at least 10 years.  The area is expanding quickly and picking the winner is difficult.  There is a lot of hype and hope.  You have to look at balance sheets.  He would like to see more clarity on the legal front.

2016-12-22 TOP PICK Must be logged in to use chart AEG-N Aegon N.V.

They do insurance, pensions, and asset management.  Their stock has been hurt badly but they pay a dividend.  They sold their Ukrainian operations to move more into Brazil.  It has a lot of potential.  During the recession they were bailed out by the Dutch government and thinks they would do it again if necessary, protecting investors.

2016-12-22 SPECULATIVE BUY Must be logged in to use chart AJX-T AgJunction Inc

The AG space was exciting a couple of years ago.  It is a necessary space.  Their merger left their sales back where they were pre-merger.  It is taking some tax loss selling now.  Management is reasonable.  They have no debt.

2016-12-22 TOP PICK Must be logged in to use chart BB-T BlackBerry

They released numbers this week.  The revenue was weak.  The turnaround portion is done and now they will look at growth.  He has confidence in management.  Once you turn around a big company the analysts are all over it and the stock price can move up quickly.  It is Canadian.  (Analysts’ Target: $10.25).

2016-12-22 DON'T BUY Must be logged in to use chart BBD.B-T Bombardier Inc (B)

There is a huge amount of debt at the company.  The ‘B’ preferreds were trading at 8% but there is a lot of risk.  He would be very wary of anything they say.  He was glad he got out because he was afraid of what was going on with the ‘C’ series.  They have constant bailouts.  The preferreds are reasonably secured.

2016-12-22 SELL ON STRENGTH Must be logged in to use chart BRB-T Brick Brewing Company Ltd.

He bought it at about 25 cents and sold 25% at $1.54.  He was trying to sell more but the market would not take it.  Now it is in the $3 range and is thinking about selling it next year so as to defer taxes.  They have just said they are doing very well.  They have a new factory and are packing a lot out of it.  It seems they are firing on almost all cylinders.  He would not buy it here.  He would love to see them taken over but is not tipping his beer to it right now.

2016-12-22 WEAK BUY Must be logged in to use chart EXE-T Extendicare Inc

He bought two years ago and could see it getting to $15 now.  He does not see buying it now for growth but the dividend is nice.  It is a wonderful demographic play.  He is happy to watch it continue to grow, but it is not the 100% upside that he likes to see.

They make female condoms.  They were the leader in the world last year.  They have done a merger with a technology company, with Aspen Pharma, and he hates the merger as Aspen has zero revenue.  Their management ran a previous company into the ground.  FHCO-Q have no debt but the revenues got cut in half the last quarter.  He is looking for when he should get out.

2016-12-22 WATCH Must be logged in to use chart IMG-T Iamgold Corp

He never averages up, only down.  Gold has been hit because of the US dollar and interest rates going up.  China is limiting the amount of gold that can go into the country and India is eliminating some of their currency.  You have these strong currents against it.  Trump is positive for gold because you never know what he is going to say or do.  Gold is an interesting play at the right price point.

2016-12-22 COMMENT Must be logged in to use chart ING-N ING Groep NV

It was on the watch list and then it moved up quite a bit.  European banks could be a good thing right now.  Canadian banks are of zero interest to him.  ING-N could be a good one but he does not follow it.
