Markets.  It has been an interesting couple of months.  It is difficult to translate a Trump victory into investment strategy.  Some of the run in certain stocks have been impacted by policy reform and it is probably over done.  Changed policies will not get implemented until third or fourth quarter of 2017.  You should own companies that will work regardless of the outcome of policy reform in the US.  He has a bias to Canada but has exposure to other parts of the world.  The cost of capital in Canada will go up as a result of many rate increases in the US.  These rate increases will impact interest sensitive sectors.  Not all of a REIT’s debt gets refinanced in any given year.  This insulates them from the full impact of rate increases.

2016-12-15 BUY Must be logged in to use chart AAR.UN-T Pure Industrial Real Estatetrust Trust

He likes the industrial sector.  In traditional retail you have the Amazon affect.  Industrial is the easiest to build.  As you see more and more business being done on line you should see this one benefitting.  They did a nice job of carving out a niche and should be able to deliver decent dividend growth.

2016-12-15 BUY Must be logged in to use chart ALA-T Altagas Ltd

He is a large shareholder and continues to like it.  It has been negatively impacted by the threat of rising rates.  It has a tremendous power generation portfolio.  A lot of their assets will deliver tremendous growth.  They have 20 plus year power purchase agreements.  You will continue to see income growth.  The sell off is from commodity pries and represents 20% of their business so represents a buying opportunity.  It has an attractive yield.

2016-12-15 HOLD Must be logged in to use chart AX.UN-T Artis Real Estate Investment Trust

It is a name that has been challenging because of the western Canada exposure.  They are divesting out of some of Western Canada and going into the US.  He’d hang on to it.  The payout ratio is about 90% but he does not think things can get worse in western Canada.  They are focused on more suburban markets.

2016-12-15 PAST TOP PICK Must be logged in to use chart BPY.UN-T Brookfield Property Partners

(Top Pick Dec 24/15, Down 8.20%) It was caught up in a bad REIT pull back due to rate increase threats.  He now prefers the parent as an alternative.

2016-12-15 BUY Must be logged in to use chart CHP.UN-T Choice Properties REIT

It is the real estate arm of L-T.  The parent owns about 80% of the REIT.  This is L-T with less volatility and a higher yield.  It is a high quality REIT.  The problem at the time of the IPO was the agreements with L-T that limited rent increases.  He does not know about the properties that Shoppers is on.

2016-12-15 HOLD Must be logged in to use chart CRR.UN-T Crombie Real Estate Investment Trust

The volatility is a reflection of the broader real estate sector.  It has to do with the threat of rising interest rates.  They can benefit from underlying growth in Sobeys.  This REIT is not very affected by EMP-T’s difficulties in integrating Safeway.

2016-12-15 PAST TOP PICK Must be logged in to use chart CU-T Canadian Utilities

(Top Pick Dec 24/15, Up 13.70%) He also owns some of the preferreds.  This is a pretty decent name within the utility sector, defensive and can withstand marginal rate increases.  It is not too rich for his liking.

2016-12-15 HOLD Must be logged in to use chart DRG.UN-T Dream Global REIT

It is a decent name if you own it.  It is tough to switch out of it.  He has preferred names including a top pick today.  Management promised to diversify the portfolio and they did a good job of that.  The payout ratio is high so this is why he is cautious on it.  There are risks in the devaluation of the Euro.   He does not think they will have to cut the dividend.

2016-12-15 TOP PICK Must be logged in to use chart FB-Q Facebook

He started buying recently because it looks cheap based on 2018 numbers.  It is trading at a slight premium to the market multiple.  They generate gobs and gobs of cash flow.  They are in a duopoly with Google.   (Analysts’ Target: $154.45)

2016-12-15 HOLD Must be logged in to use chart GILD-Q Gilead Sciences Inc.

It has been under pressure over the last year.  They have a really good HIV and HEP-C franchise.  The pressure is because they cure HEP-C so you take demand out of the market.  The cash on their balance sheet should allow them to buy something to create growth in the company.  That is why you would hold on to it.  He has a small position.  You could increase holding if it pulls back further.

2016-12-15 HOLD Must be logged in to use chart HOT.UN-T American Hotel Income Properties

It only IPOed in the last few years.  The vast majority of the business came from rail road industry at the time.  They have since diversified and done a good job of it.  He still thinks it is a niche.  He would prefer HR.UN-T but hold if you own HOT.UN-T then hang on to it.

2016-12-15 BUY Must be logged in to use chart HR.UN-T H&R Real Estate Inv Trust

It is a good value pick.  The yield is sustainable.  It is a diversified portfolio.  They have office space in Canada and the US.  They have apartments in the US now.  They have debt equating to 10 years.  Higher rates should not affect them much.  Only about 10% of their debt is up for renewal in any particular year.

2016-12-15 PAST TOP PICK Must be logged in to use chart MDLZ-Q Mondelez International

(Top Pick Dec 24/15, Up 2.41%) It is up today because there is speculation that Kraft Heinz may be interested.  It was not a particularly well run company so he bought it on expectation of improving.  An activist coming in can expedite this.

2016-12-15 BUY Must be logged in to use chart MST.UN-T Milestone Apartment REIT

They own garden style apartments in the US.  There is a difference in the US in that the turnover is a lot higher.  In a given year they have about 60% turnover.  The apartment sector is highly coveted by pension funds.  This one should do particularly well while rents are lower than the cost of ownership.
