Market. Thinks earnings are starting to catch up with valuations now. The S&P 500 is up 12% since the US November election. Expectations are that we’re in a more growth friendly environment even though Trump’s policies have not all come through. We need to see the earnings come through. It looks like year-over-year 1st quarter earnings are going to be up at around 14%-15%, the 1st double digit pace since 2011. We’ve done better than expected. Also, comments on conference calls have been encouraging. Europe and emerging markets are stabilizing.

Energy. Thinks oil prices will remain quite volatile. She is not committing capital to this sector yet. She was encouraged by what OPEC and Russia said yesterday, and thinks they want to maintain a price level of around $50. However, US shale production is ramping up which is offsetting the benefits of the production cuts. Until they see a sustainable draw down in inventories, that is when she will get more positive.

Gold? She has a very low weighting in gold in her clients’ accounts. The reason to hold gold is usually because of uncertainty, and that really isn’t in the cards right now. Inflation is another reason and the pressures are not that strong.

Sell holdings? She actually added a bit to her holdings in December when OPEC 1st announced the production cuts. A very low cost producer and in a very attractive region in the Montney. Have a very strong balance sheet, stronger than its peers. She would not sell this, and is hoping for improved energy prices over the next 6-12 months.

2017-05-16 BUY Must be logged in to use chart BCE-T BCE Inc.

A good name for an income investor. It has an attractive yield. Recently closed on the Manitoba Tel acquisition, so there should be some synergies. She has a target price of $63-$64 which will give you an 8% capital appreciation, plus the yield of 4.73%. The dividend will continue to be increased over time. If there is a pullback, the stock should hold in quite well.

2017-05-16 COMMENT Must be logged in to use chart CGX-T Cineplex Inc

Has owned this for a number of years. It is the largest theatre operator in Canada. The concession and ticket prices represents 75% of earnings. The other 25% is media, and there are good growth prospects in this area, particularly in the US. They are trying to diversify the revenue stream and are opening the rec room concept. They are very good at increasing the amount that you spend once you are in their theatres. Yielding around 3%.

Though she has this in some portfolios, she has not been actively buying for a couple of years. The stock price will be dictated by where crude prices go. If the OPEC production cuts have more effect, and we start to see inventory drawdowns, then energy names can start working. This company has been known to issue a lot of equity to fund positions to grow their inventory land. The last issue they did was not very well received. They have a very attractive land base to drill from, so she doesn’t expect they will be looking to acquire more.

(A Top Pick May 18/16. Up 11%.) ESPN has been an overhang on the stock. They’ve been losing customers and this was a very profitable division for them. However, the declines have been moderating, and people are watching content much more differently than previous generations. On their quarterly call, they indicated they are going to offer an ESPN branded direct consumer product later this year.

A pipeline stock, and they did an acquisition that increases their presence in the US on the natural gas side. She felt their quarter was fine. Pipeline companies don’t build a pipeline unless they have very long-term commitments. The company feels that they can increase their dividend 10%-12% annually to 2024.

2017-05-16 TOP PICK Must be logged in to use chart GIB.A-T CGI Group (A)

A large IT services company. Half their revenues come from outsourcing from long-term contracts. The other half is systems integration and projects. A very well-run company and very global. Half their revenues come from Europe, an acquisition they did in 2012, which had very low margins. CGI improved those margins back to company levels. About 20% is from the US, 50% from Canada, and the rest from Asia. Every few years, they tend to make a large acquisition to expand their geographic scope or a particular vertical they want to be in. (Analysts’ price target is $74.)

Wouldn’t be a buyer of this. It is down a lot, but that doesn’t mean it is cheap. Visibility is very poor. What happens when they finally draw on that full credit facility? That credit facility is very expensive, so they are losing money every time they have to draw on it.

A large, global, pharmaceutical company. The primary reason she likes this is that their pharma division is doing really, really well. They’ve had a very successful 5 years, and suspects they have a strong enough pipeline to keep that growth going. Recently acquired a Swiss pharmaceutical company which has leading products in heart disease. AAA balance sheet. Dividend yield of 2.7%. (Analysts’ price target is $130.)

A US defence name, an area where she wants some exposure. She is waiting for a bit of a pullback in this space. Pres. Trump wants to increase his defence spending, which is a positive for all defence companies. However, there is a question of timing and funding. Feels that valuations are a little stretched right now.

2017-05-16 TOP PICK Must be logged in to use chart RY-T Royal Bank

She wanted to choose a bank, to show that she likes the banking sector. This has pulled back from the beginning of the year. All the banks had a great year last year, so she doesn’t expect returns of 25%-26%. They have about 25% exposure to the US, and she thinks the US economy is going to grow faster than the Canadian. Acquired City National which focused on high net individuals and commercial loans. Dividend yield of 3.7%. (Analysts’ price target is $101.)

She would buy this at the current price. The sector has pulled back, and this one is back a bit more because of their Sell practices that was in the news about a month ago. She doesn’t think that is inherent in their culture. On the premise that the US and Canadian economies are improving, banks are still reasonable. Expects this will generate earnings growth in the 8% range, and that their dividend will continue to be increased along the same pace as earnings growth. Yield of about 3.5%.

This is a transition from cash and cheques to online payments, in particular in emerging markets. There are still a lot of emerging countries that are not using much in the way of credit cards. Even in North America there is still room to grow. They just acquired Visa Europe, which is expected to generate more profits going forward. She is not buying this for new clients, and is hoping to be able to get in at about $90.

2017-04-12 N/A Must be logged in to use chart A Commentary A Comment -- General Comments From an Expert

Market. S&P 500 has rallied about 10% since the November election. There has been a lot of soft data in terms of sentiment/optimism by consumers and businesses. That has gone up a lot since the election in hopes of Trump’s pro-growth policies, tax cuts and regulatory reform coming into place. It hasn’t happened yet, and now we are seeing a lull, and the S&P 500 has been in a trading range for the last few months at the 2300-2400 range. Going forward, the earning season is coming, but with markets trading at about 18X forward earnings, and historical averages around 15X, it is arguably on the high-end. If we do get some tax reforms, that will boost EPS and moderate the multiple. In terms of earnings, she wants to see what the companies are saying and what they are seeing out there. They may be holding back on capital spending until they see some of these reforms being put in place.

Made an acquisition in the US that is going to strengthen their growth outlook. Feels the dividend is safe. There are a number of players in that space, kind of midstream operations/pipeline. She owns Inter Pipeline (IPL-T) and Pembina (PPL-T) which she knows better, and which also have good cash flow growth. Dividend yield of 6.8%, which is sustainable.

Brookfield Asset (BAM.A-T) or Brookfield Infrastructure (BIP.UN-T)?  Between the 2, her preference would be this one. It is much more diversified, plus it has interest in Brookfield Infrastructure. It gives access to their fund management side, the private equity funds. That is also where senior management executives own their shares. Dividend yield of 2.2%.
