Markets.  He has gotten out of more companies in the past 4 to 5 months than possibly ever before.  He is taking some great profits.  His picks today are down in value and have a long way up to go.  When markets are up so high it is worth taking money off the table.  Don’t get greedy.  At some point there will be a blow off, but the trend right now is upwards.  North Korea, he does not think is quite as significant as some people do.  He thinks volatility can be his friend.

2017-08-14 TOP PICK Must be logged in to use chart AEG-N Aegon N.V.

It used to be a $50 stock.  They had been selling off assets to comply with the new Euro regulations.  They bottom line is good and they have tremendous upside.  He thinks at the end of the day they will do well.  They got bailed out by the Dutch government.  If they get in trouble again maybe the Dutch government will step in again.  They seem to be on the right path.  (Analysts’ target: $5.60).

2017-08-14 SELL Must be logged in to use chart AIM-T Aimia

They are in trouble and can’t pay the dividend.  It will be harder for them to make money in the future.  He would take a tax loss with this one.  They have a lot of problems they have to deal with.  A lot of people may decide to cash in their Aeorplan points before they possibly go under.

2017-08-14 WATCH Must be logged in to use chart AJX-T AgJunction Inc

They did a merger with another company that doubled their size, but then the revenues went below their previous levels.  A lot of the AG companies are doing well.  He is happy to hold it, but does not know when there will be a breakthrough.

2017-08-14 HOLD Must be logged in to use chart BAC-N Bank of America

He would not pay $24 for it.  He does not average up.  They just raised the dividend.  Higher interest rates should bode well for them. Continue to hold.

He still likes it.  GS-N just put it down to a sell.  Chen seems to be hitting his targets for the most part.  He bought it assuming it would be taken over, but that did not happen.  He kept it because Chen had his previous company taken over.  It is so big and has such a huge following that when it does well it can really shoot up.

2017-08-14 SELL Must be logged in to use chart CDI-N CDI Corp.

They are being taken over by a private equity group.  He lost money.  He bought when the US dollar was about par.  The earnings recently weren’t very good.  He doubts a higher bid will come in and is worried the deal will not go through.  He hopes it will get taken over.  They don’t pay a dividend any more.  He estimates it will close in the third quarter.

2017-08-14 DON'T BUY Must be logged in to use chart CGX-T Cineplex Inc

It has gone up way, way too high to be of interest.  Revenues come from many different things other than films.  This is an industry that is going to continue one way or another.

At some point it will find the floor.  He watches it because it is so badly beaten up.  He will study it for 6 months.  They took on a tremendous amount of debt.  It could go down a fair amount from here.  This is his kind of company to watch and possibly buy.

There is a takeover going on.  It is at a 20% premium in shares.  He does not buy into the venture.  For them to have revenues of any degree, he feels they will have dilution before that.

They have huge debt loads they have to deal with.  It does not intrigue him.  Look at debt levels relative to revenues with companies you are looking to buy.  It is on his watch list but is a minor player.

(Top Pick Mar 1/16, Down 27.50%)  He sold it.  They merged with VERU-Q.  They are pouring money into research and have to get all these approvals.  The CEO does not have a good track record.  He took a loss.  The revenues came way down and they are having trouble making money.

2017-08-14 HOLD Must be logged in to use chart FUSB-Q First US Bancshares Inc

He paid $8 and change and it now trades at $11 and change.  They never diluted the shares during the recession.  They just reported a quarter where they made money.  He is happy to sit with the shares he has.  If they increase the dividend that will help a lot.  Interest rates going up will help the banking sector.

2017-08-14 TOP PICK Must be logged in to use chart GMP-T GMP Capital Trust Inc

This field has been decimated.  They took over First Energy.  The recent quarterly results look awful because they wrote off a lot after the merger, which is normal in a merger or takeover.  They are dealing with a lot of law suits, however.
