Likes the business. Has a great franchise in Canada. Good growth opportunities. Great reputation in the small/mid-cap space, especially in the resource sector. Now hands growth opportunities through the acquisition of the Collins Stewart business in the UK. If you want exposure to a rebounding capital market, this is a great way to go. 5.2% yield and as capital markets improve, there should be a lot of torque to the upside.

Offering to acquire Collins Stewart Hawkpoint, which he thinks is a good deal. They're trying to get more into the investment management side, which has been the opportunity in the financial services business.

(Top Pick Mar 9/11, Up 36.43%) Likes it and where it is positioned right now. Access to low cost natural gas. Generating a tremendous amount of cash flow. Trimming his position but you can always get back in during a pullback.

Unusual because it is the large independent brokerage set up with strong mining and oil branch in London. Acquired a deal in Australia. It shows the expansionary trend.

Trading revenue, M&A and capital markets businesses have not been as strong as in the past. This one is a great competitor in the Canadian marketplace. To get it going, the whole sector has to move. He got stopped out but would like to eventually get back in.

Investment dealer with operations in Canada, US and UK. These companies tend to go weak this time of year. The kind of stock where he would be a buyer in June, July, August period and then sell just after RRSP season in February. $14-$15 shortly after Christmas.

Interesting company that has been trying to reposition itself for some time. Stock price close to BV. Good quality company with capital market exposure. Under $10 is a good entry point.

Very levered play on markets. Got crushed, lost money for a couple of quarters and has come back a nice percentage. It takes a while for their retail volumes to come up and stay really high. This is a bull market stock and we are not there yet.

Mergers and activities have dropped away and trading volumes are down so earnings are less. They will be challenged through 2009.

Will benefit from government backing as they had stated they would make their customers whole. His concern is that it is still a pretty difficult market. Not a lot of new issue products. Wait for a better time.
