He would sell some positions. It's done very well, but he doesn't expect a repeat this year. There probably won't be a huge capital gain though you will continue to get dividends. It might not do as well as the index.

Utilities sector in the US. It is more correlated with interest rates and when they fall this is good for the sector. He does not like it on a risk/reward basis. It is expensive right now. If stocks collapse, then this will be the safest sector to invest in and generate a yield.

Utilities. He thinks rates are going higher but less so now. They are not as big a headwind as they could have been. The top three names are renewables. You have better predictability of revenue, which is good in a downturn. They are definitely defensive.

US growth is moderate, just not putting up accelerating growth. This is a kind of environment where steady state utilities can do really well for you. Rates don’t seem to be shooting up anytime soon as inflation is just not there.

If we think inflation is coming we should see that 10 year north of 3%, but it is not. We broke above the $49 level. There are a lot of buyers in there. It is one of the strongest sectors. If the 1 year gets above 2.6% then you have broken the theme.

With all the US data since September, there is not a lot of reason that Yelin had to raise rates. Chart shows there were some lower lows in September and again in December. The risk/reward is really good. Thinks the softening US$ will help it. He is looking for $45 first term and the 2nd spot would be around $48.

This is a boring position and he doesn’t expect a lot of upside, but also doesn’t expect a lot of downside. Thinks if you were to look at this position a month or 2 from now, you will find it more or less at a similar price. He expects it to be flat but to earn a dividend on it.

On a relative basis utilities are moving up on a short term. Their long term performance hasn't been impacted too much. Has been performing really well in the last 2 weeks. They really like it and has started to add to it.

However, there are a couple of spots to hang your hat on. In the last couple of months, earnings have really started to ratchet up. It has really been oversold.

Had a huge run up in the spring when it typically does not do well, which meant the market had become more defensive. When the Fed talked about tapering, this fell way back down again. Thinks that was a little bit overdone. From a technical perspective, he sees a little bit of a reverse head and shoulders pattern and it has just broken above the resistance line.
