2017-04-25 TOP PICK CASH
CASH
Brooke Thackray

There is nothing wrong with raising a little bit of cash at this time. This will give you opportunities when other sectors do well in the summertime and you will be able to fund them.

2017-04-25 TOP PICK Horizons-US-7-10-Year-Treasury-Bond-ETF
HTB-T
Brooke Thackray

Bonds tend to do well in the summer months. The best month for fixed income is from May until the beginning of October. It comes back in the form of capital gains, not interest. Look for a bit of a pullback before you go into this.

2017-04-25 TOP PICK Nevsun-Resources
NSU-T
Craig Porter

They had a mine in Eritrea, which was first gold, then copper, and now a very rich zinc zone. They are currently having some trouble separating the copper and zinc. However, the big asset they bought was Reservoir Minerals with a big high grade copper/gold deposit in Serbia. They slashed their dividend down to 1.61% to redirect proceeds into the next project, which a lot of investors didn’t like. The mine is going to be very profitable. (Analysts’ price target is $5.13.)

2017-04-25 TOP PICK SPDR-Consumer-Staples-ETF
XLP-N
Brooke Thackray

Expensive right, now trading at over 20X PE, and they are slow growing stocks. But, in the summer months, investors are willing to pay a little more for that stability.

2017-04-24 TOP PICK McKesson-Corp
MCK-N
Liz Miller

A very big player, and has long been a leader.  The stock is a long way down from its high.  She thinks this company and stock will come back strong.  It is a beautiful entry point for it.  (Analysts’ target: $151.00).

2017-04-24 TOP PICK Pembina-Pipeline-Corp
PPL-T
Peter Brieger

This is just completing phase 4 and 5 of pipeline gathering in the Duvernay Basin. They are also major players in the Montney. That has given them a stranglehold on future production and gas processing in those 2 areas. They have also done a deal with Chevron, which is going to require them to do additional infrastructure spending on their behalf, which will increase cash flow and dividends. Dividend yield of 4.61%. (Analysts’ price target is $49.)

2017-04-24 TOP PICK Regions-Financial
RF-N
Liz Miller

It is a small regional player, the largest deposit taker in the state of Alabama.  The banks will continue to benefit from the slow increase in interest rates.  This is an attractive stock.  It is in a good position now after cleaning up its portfolio after 2008.  (Analysts’ target: $15.00).

2017-04-24 TOP PICK Toronto-Dominion
TD-T
Peter Brieger

This has come off, along with the other banks, based on the charges of overly aggressive branch selling, which he thinks was a tempest in a teapot. He likes the American economy better than the Canadian, and any bank with US exposure will be better off. This one has the lowest exposure to real estate in Canada. He is looking for a 10% growth rate, probably 4%-5% in dividends and 4%-5% in capital gain. Dividend yield of 3.66%. (Analysts’ price target is $71.50.)

2017-04-24 TOP PICK Ventas-Inc
VTR-N
Liz Miller

It is a REIT, the opposite of a bank.  But it is in the health care medical niche.  It recently spun off the nursing home business.  It is an attractive entry point.  She prefers exposure more to office than retail in REITs.  She is out of retail, generally.  (Analysts’ target: $64.00).

2017-04-24 TOP PICK Xylem-Inc.
XYL-N
Peter Brieger

This is a water stock. As the world focuses more and more on the need for clean water, they are looking for companies that essentially purify, transport and monitor the usage. This company is focusing on the high-tech part of the business, and just recently continued a completion of an acquisition of Sensus, which is going to add significantly to sales and earnings this year. (Analysts’ price target is $55.)

2017-04-21 TOP PICK Bank-of-America
BAC-N
Greg Newman

This has a BV of less than 1. He sees 20% EPS growth. It is very well positioned towards the Trump agenda. Thinks they will do something about the Volker rule and probably lower taxes a little. This bank is very well positioned towards the domestic side of the economy. He doesn’t see a lot of risks. Dividend yield of 1.3%. (Analysts’ price target is $26.50.)

2017-04-21 TOP PICK Power-Financial-Corp
PWF-T
Greg Newman

He likes financials. This one has a very nice dividend and is very defensive. It should benefit with slightly higher interest rates and a better stock market with their underlying holdings. He models a 9% EPS growth over the next couple of years. Dividend yield of 4.8%. (Analysts’ price target is $37.00.)

This is the time for emerging markets, and this is a nice interesting basket. He likes where they are spread out. Good yield. There have been positive earnings revisions in the area. Stronger growth and stronger currencies, with a slightly weaker US$.
