A remarkable run since the March lows. Deploying capital was easier then. Now, it's harder to find easier investment opportunities. Move in the real interest rates and pullback of the USD makes a case for gold. They are still focusing on North American equities.

Jobs report. Overall numbers were better than expected. The job recovery was always going to be slow. We should not expect a V shaped recovery. In the US, the number of permanent unemployment remained constant. The flexible and furlough are coming back, but there is still a large number of turnover. Markets are back to all time highs thanks to stimulus, which is remarkable.

US Government Stimulus. There is no hard deadline for coming up with a stimulus program. However, the consumer will feel the impact of delays. He expects a deal next week at around a trillion dollars.

US and China Relations. The relation will probably continue to deteriorate. The battle with China will be measured in the next couple decades. The battle is about reserve currency status and technological dominance. The democrats want to take a different strategy by opening up dialogue with China. The fact that the economy is only working because of stimulus is a cause of concern.

Educational segment. We're going to start getting results of the vaccine towards October. We will have an understanding of the efficacy of these vaccines before the elections. There is tremendous hope priced into markets. There is a high possibility that Trump will lose, but the most interesting elections will be in the senate. There are some swing states that will affect the senate greatly. The markets are melting up because of FOMO but there is more volatility and uncertainty looking ahead.

We're on the cusp of a new bull market for oil? Once we emerge from the Covid destruction, we'll exit this year about 4% below prior conditions. It's all about supply. The last 5 years have revolved around US shale. But due to shutting of external sources of funding and investor apathy, shale companies are aiming to grow at most 5% a year. The world relies on US shale, so the future is very different from the past. Saudi remains with a budget deficit on the price of oil. We can get back to $60 oil next year.

The biggest opportunities are in Canadian small and mid cap names? Going forward, investors don't want growth of capital. They want dividends and share buybacks. Low debt levels and low corporate decline rates let them do this. Canada shines in this area. Already seeing capital flow back to Canada. Conditions in a few months will be tighter. His fund is 100% invested in Canada right now.

What do you make of the markets? There's a bifurcation between the economy and the stock market. The economy is slowly improving, but the markets are at all time highs. But that's not the whole story. The S&P peaked on June 8 with the non-farm payroll, and if you take out the top 6 runaway stocks, the remaining S&P 494 are below that peak.

What do you think about big tech? No question, they've done really well. But it's a very crowded trade, so it's becoming extremely expensive. Watch when tech starts to underperform, as that could be a sign that the global market is in trouble. The market doesn't like the anxiety of an election. Usually, the markets dip down from September to November. Investors should be cautious.

Where is the US dollar going? You're always making two decisions: the currency and the stock. Converting CAD to US dollars means you're expecting the US dollar to go up. That's not for the average investor. You want to have a macro picture. US dollar has gone down recently, and is very oversold, so we might see a bounce with the non-farm payroll on Friday.

A good time to buy a partial position in natural gas? Nat gas had a huge move in the last week. Inventories are lower than normal, plus the storm on the East Coast. With commodities, they can really go. Seasonal period is September, so look at that as an entry date. Before that, look to see if it's oversold. He's waiting right now, either for a pullback or for seasonality to start. A lot of positives for natural gas.

Invest in gold? He watches both gold and the miners. They've all run up a lot. Start with an ETF of gold stocks, such as XGD, GDX or GDXJ. If the market were to correct sharply, the miners can go down quickly, so you have to be careful. Be careful with the miners, as they've run up so much. This is the seasonality for gold miners, and they've performed well.

Earnings seasons and double-digit profit declines (i.e. Air Canada): earnings are dreadful or not as bad as feared, depending on your expectations. Anyway, he's conditioned for earnings to be down a lot, and forecasts were slashed earlier. It's a market of winners vs. losers. Winners: big tech mostly in the U.S. and Shopify here, and gold stocks. Losers: banks struggling with loan loss provisions, and oil given low prices. The gold rally is legit and it's onwards and upwards--gold rallies in troubles times and now certainly is. We'll see Canadian Q3 banks report later this month; banks will be pressured by narrow interest margins and of course loan loss provisions, though business loan deferrals may cushion the blow.

The stock market is going up, with the S&P up 8% ytd. It's a fallacy that the stock market and the economy moves hand in hand. The market is significantly undervalued taking into consideration the interest rates going to zero. Earnings for tech companies are growing, and he is bullish on good quality companies.

US Debt. He believes it's been a long time coming for worries over US debt. If the USD wasn't the currency reserve of the world, it should be trading at AA-. They had to start printing money and it's been decades in the making. It won't mean much for market response until the rating drops by a couple firms.

Tech earnings. The market was delighted for earnings. For Facebook, the backing away of many companies from the social media site has not affected the earnings so much. The firms with data will be hit hardest by anti-trust, like Google or Facebook. He expects some pain coming.

Market performance. The S&P 500 was up 1.7% on the week. It's been an okay week. We now have 3/4 of the large cap stocks report. There is a 30-35% of Russell 2000 small caps reporting their earnings next week. The pain is more in the small cap.

Educational segment. Back in 2014, he said that gold was broken for a little while. Central bank money printing hadn't played out yet. In 2018, he changed his tune as the Federal Reserves rose rates. In 2019, we saw a breakout from $1,400. Fundamentally, for gold prices to go up, you need investment demands. There is an increase in investment demand and a massive decrease in the jewellery demand now. With real yield going negative, gold is a no-brainer. He expects inflation in the USD. He expects 10-40% upside on an inflation adjusted basis for gold. Lots of upside for gold.

Shares coming under pressure today due to drop in the US GDP. There's been a huge run up. US stimulus payments end today, and that's a challenge. People working from home, lower consumption of energy, and less restaurant traffic are taking a toll on the GDP.

Behaviour of US dollar related to recessions. Historically, the US dollar has been the standard for global transactions. But the Chinese yuan has taken a bite out of it. Plus fiscal policy has driven interest rates low. These elements are a structural bear on the dollar. The US doesn't have the healthy social safety net that its trading partners do. So the US will experience much deeper recessions than its partners. US dollar will continue to weaken if the full impact of Covid continues to affect the US.

Where to allocate capital? If currency were your only consideration, you'd redeem some of your US assets and put the money into areas like China, Hong Kong, and Singapore. Recovery in those markets will benefit you, and then you cycle back into the US when it falls to a low. Global investors cycle their money from strong currencies to weak.

Many of the large cap stocks are trading above their intrinsic values. Rational investors must be careful and look at the fundamentals. He's looking into small and mid cap stocks that are still under valued. There is a large increase in personal investment accounts being open by new investors. These accounts hold investments in many similar companies because they are in the news, and not because of their investment worthiness. He is positive in the market still, especially with lower interest rates expected to hold for a while and government stimulus being injected.

It's strange times. Big question: What will the US Congress do with stimulus that's keeping the economy afloat? Will Republicans support working poor people? Many big tech names report on Thursday; it's like the Superbowl. These tech giants have reasonable valuations rooted in reality, so he has no problem with the price run-up of Amazon, Apple, Google, etc. However, Tesla and Shopify share prices are entirely speculative; maybe he'd buy Shopify at a third of the current price.

Stop losses You tell your broker to sell a stock when it falls to a certain price, useful for traders and speculators but not long-term investors. If you like a stock at $125, you should like it more at $110 and not sell it or even buy more. He never uses stop losses and doesn't recommend them to long-term investors.
