2017-06-20 HOLD Enbridge Income Fund Holdings
ENF-T
Bruce Murray

We have entered into an oil bear market. Pipeline stocks had done pretty well and for the last 2 years they’ve been underperforming. This has a dividend yield of 6.4%, and believes they have the ability to increase that dividend a little, gradually. Infrastructure is still needed if Canada is going to move its oil. The main line, which runs from the oil fields to the US border, is being replaced which will give this company a pretty good boost as they get to mark up their capital base to the cost of replacing that pipeline. Has a nice yield and there is probably a little increase coming. 6.35% dividend yield.

FTS-T
David Burrows

A great company, but utilities are not his favourite space. If you think the economy is getting better, it is not the most economically sensitive group. However, if you think rates are going higher slowly over time, then you need to be able to find a dividend stream that will grow a little every year. Although this company is not a rocket ship, it has probably had the best record in Canada for dividend growth. A good mix between regulated utilities and non-regulated.

Technology is probably the most important secular long-term theme in the market. This company plays right in the middle of a couple of the key themes, but the most important is Cloud and Search. He sees signs in the near term that some of the more cyclical sectors, like financials and industrials, may be seeing some rotation into those names with a little money coming out of technology.

With shale oil coming out at $50-$60 a barrel, it will be a long time before the economies are there for the big oil sand producers to make money.

This one is right at the heart of autonomous driving and artificial intelligence machine learning, and looks as though it is the leader in the semiconductor group.

Markets.  It comes down to valuation.  With the market multiple at 20 times, it is rather rich.  He likes 15 to 20 times if there is 15-20 percent earnings growth.  Finding stocks is getting more challenging.  There is risk for Canadian stocks with changes to NAFTA.  It’s an overhang.  US investors are going to want to see some kind of resolution to NAFTA.  Stock picking is important as things are likely to go sideways over the summer.

Market. Two areas he likes are defence and construction. Defence has a very long-term cycle and is very easy to identify. Global defence spending fell for 6-7 years in a row, and 2015 was the 1st year defence spending increased. The cycles tend to last 7-10 years. Construction has to do with the age of the structures. Government statisticians in the developed world, have tracked the age of infrastructure, and it has never been this old. We are already starting to see the cycle. If governments come in with stimulus packages, that can be a catalyst, but the cycle is there, simply because things are wearing out. Regarding automobiles, we have gotten up to a SAAR (Seasonally Adjusted Rate of Production of Automobiles) of 16-17 million in the US, so we have literally seen the top of cycle amounts.

US Treasury Bonds? One of the biggest problems globally is low interest rates, which has been largely caused by several factors, not the least of which is foreign governments hoarding them. The People’s Bank of China has the largest central bank balance sheet globally, and they’ve hoarded a massive amount of treasuries suppressing interest rates, and denying American households income. The US government is also to blame. The Pensions Benefit Guarantee Corp. raises the penalty payments for underfunded conditions within pensions, every year sequentially, which leads pension plans to buy duration products, such as long-term government bonds, or corporate’s that are swapped back into the government market. There are somewhere around $1 trillion treasuries that are being held by banks, instead of banks investing their money to provide mortgages.

He has looked at it numerous times and balked at it each time.  It is a little expensive for a food corp. business.  He is playing the space through another one.  Wait for a pullback (10-15%) before getting into it.

He really likes this company. Sold his holdings when he thought they had too much inventory. The most recent concerns are that the assortment of footwear may not be the right assortment, which he imagines they will fix in time. They had too many shoes at the high end of their price range, and not enough in the mid-range. Also, there is a lot of concern about their retail channel. Still sells a fair amount through wholesalers to department stores, and department store footfall has turned negative. There is a restructuring plan in place. This still has room to fall if it goes to the bottom end of its long-term valuation range. Keeps this on his watch list.

It is not a viable stock to look into.  He owned it at one point.  It is an interesting space, but unfortunately it has been a poorly executed story.  It is a bit of a ‘show me’ story.
