Economy. The numbers we are seeing are improving and broadening. The job numbers yesterday were very strong. Unemployment is back around 6.5%. The Canadian economy has probably seen the worst since energy prices started collapsing a couple of years ago. Thinks the economy has now adjusted to low oiler prices for longer on oil. A lot of energy companies have restructured their balance sheets and many have cut their dividends. Oil has probably a model of $45-$55 range. There is still a lot of uncertainty regarding what happens to OPEC. There have been some encouraging trade numbers in manufacturing for the last few months. The Cdn$ was quite weak, but has had a bit of a rally with a rate increase. Increases will be very slow and will be based on what the governor sees as data comes out. In her portfolios, she still has about 45% of equities outside of Canada. The US economy is recovering.

2017-07-12 COMMENT Must be logged in to use chart AQN-T Algonquin Power & Utilities Corp

Cenovus Energy (CEV-T) or Algonquin Power (AQN-T) for long-term gains and dividends? All interest sensitive stocks in a rising interest rate environment tend to pull back, especially so in a sharply rising rate environment, which she does not anticipate in Canada. If we get these pullbacks and high-quality utilities, it is a good time to get in. If you want yield, this is definitely the stock to get into. Cenovus is an energy oil sands producer, whose cash flow is going to be largely predicated on what crude oil does.

Just reported and had pretty good numbers. A relatively mature industry, but they are consolidators. They buy assets and integrate them in. With the recent downturn in energy, the major energy companies are pulling out of running gas stations, and this company is a natural acquirer of those. That is how they maintain their growth. Thinks this is fully valued.

A packaging company that grows through acquisition and integrates quite well.

Feels the stock is fully valued, and would want to get it in the low $60 area.

She likes the Canadian banks, which have pulled back from their highs earlier this year. She anticipates they will increase dividends at the same rate as their earnings growth, in the 7%-8% range. This one is primarily a domestic bank. There is not a lot of growth left in Canada, and this has not had a great track record. When they do expand, they tend to pull back. They paid a very full price for the US acquisition they are making. This wouldn’t be one of her top picks.

Some clients hold this from a couple of years ago, and she hasn’t bought for new clients. She is waiting for energy prices to stabilize and to see a drawdown in inventory. This company is primarily oil, so the share price is going to be dictated by where oil goes. Like many other companies, they cut their dividend in the last downturn. Their balance sheet is in pretty good shape, so if energy stays at these levels and doesn’t fall further, they could probably maintain that dividend. Dividend yield of 4.07%.

This is a fine company. Feels the dividend is safe. They acquired Spectra, a natural gas transition company in the US. Based on the projects they have and the backlog the sector has, they can increase their dividend 10%-12% through 2024. In a rising rate environment, it is very important to find companies that have an attractive yield. Dividend yield of 4.66%.

This has outsourcing with about 55% of their business. Systems integration and contracting is about 45%. The 55% is very much a reoccurring revenue stream, so is a stable stream of cash. Every few years they tend to make a large acquisition that either broadens their geography or deepens them in a vertical market. Logical was the last acquisition a few years ago that really gave them exposure in Europe. It was not a well-run company and margins were much lower. They brought them back up, and Europe is now about 55% of their business. They are ready to make another large acquisition, but are very disciplined on pricing, so are making smaller acquisitions. Organic growth is picking up. (Analysts’ price target is $74.)

(A Top Pick July 12/16. Up 31.18%.) This is her play on the Internet and digital advertising. When it got close to $1000, she took some money off the table. To buy more, she would like to see it pull back to around $900. A great company in terms of revenue growth. They grew their top line over 20% over the last 29 consecutive quarters. Regarding online advertising, she thinks it still has some growth in terms of overall corporate advertising budget, and this company will garner a large share of that.

This is a play on the US economy and housing market. The company thinks they are still in the middle innings of the housing recovery.

Auto parts. She doesn’t own anything in this space. They’ve done a good job of growing the last 20-25 years. Depending on how NAFTA or free trade works out, it could impact their business, and that has kind of served as an overhang on the stock. If she were going to play the space, she would prefer Magna (MG-T), which is more global. They are doing a lot of investing in driverless cars, and have more leverage in Europe and Asia.

Markets.  Economies are looking pretty good around the world.  Things are improving and it is not just contained to the US.  Everything is in expansion mode in the US.  Emerging markets are stabilizing.  We are seeing instability in oil.  Canada is saying the economic recovery is broadening to other sectors.  She is encouraged that corporate profits in those areas are improving.  Low energy prices are keeping inflation low.  Multiples are high, but corporate profits are coming through.  Second quarter profits should continue.  She forecasts 10-11% profit growth in S&P going forward.

Marijuana IPOs.  It is not a sector she is looking at because it is news and momentum driven.  If companies can go public, they are probably taking advantage of the environment.  There is not a lot of fundamental data to work on.  Momentum is based on the assumption that recreational use gets legalized.  It is hard to model out who is going to be winning going forward.  The ETF in the sector creates momentum in stocks and it does not differentiate which ones are attractive.

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.

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.

A company she would like to own. The stock has done very well. They’ve made some very successful acquisitions, and she is waiting for a pullback.

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%.

This is her pick in the rail space. They had a really strong quarter, and the stock moved on that. Wait for a drop in price to under $100 before stepping in.

2017-05-16 HOLD Must be logged in to use chart CPG-T Crescent Point Energy Corp

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.

2017-05-16 PAST TOP PICK Must be logged in to use chart DIS-N Walt Disney

(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.

Reported earnings about a week ago, which were a bit soft. Doesn’t think it was anything to be concerned about. It has quite an attractive yield. This is on her watch list.
