HOLD
Positive or negative leverage based on how stock market does. Buying wealth managers, especially in US. Not sure if it's working out to make bets on wealth managers as the market plummets. Long term, should work out. He owns BLK instead, an ETF provider.

BUY
You're fine as an income investor, though the stock has disappointed in the past year. They added a lot of debt to buy some businesses, but they are also buying a lot of their own shares, a good sign. They remain a great operator in Canada. They generate a lot of free cash flow. He's not worried about the 5% dividend. Shares are cheap.

DON'T BUY
Owns mutual funds etc. It has spent a lot of money on acquisitions and needs to execute on them. It will be a different environment over the next six months. There are better companies out there which are more diversified.

DON'T BUY
Dividend pays 4.8% and trades at a low PE, but CIX's asets are down in this market. Usually, fixed income offsets weakness in stocks, but not now. They've made lots of acquisitions, some of which are closing soon, and have taken on a lot of debt. They could spin off some US assets, but doubt it can happen in this economy. They need to digest those new companies and not buy more. CIX won't do much for a while.

Unspecified
There has been a big decline so far. The fair market value is strong, the balance sheet is fine and it is well run. There is good technical support at $15 but it could go to $12.

DON'T BUY
A lot of corporate activity is changing the company. Stock price is trading fairly cheap. Better names to invest in. Strong dividend with good management. Would prefer Canadian banks, energy and sold off tech stocks.

TOP PICK
The financials have pulled back, especially the asset managers like this one. It's down 40% since last year. CIX is an astute player by buying the RIA's in the States. Shares have declined because of worries of the debt that's come with buying these firms, but this will pay off over time--a stickier client base and higher margins. Expect CIX to spin-off these RIA's down the road. CIX is trading at 8x earnings and 4-5x operating cash flow. Management is buying back a lot of shares. (Analysts’ price target is $27.89)

Billy Kawasaki’s Insights - Billy’s most-liked answers from 5i Research. Good income stock. Management team is competent and the dividend is attractive. The stock is very cheap and will do well if the markets recover. Low and declining margins, competition and other growth factors remain a concern. Has high leverage to capital markets. Trading at less than 6x earnings, which is very reasonable. Unlock Premium - Try 5i Free

DON'T BUY
Companies like CI are are transitioning from high-cost mutual funds to another style of management. ETFs cost a fraction of mutual funds, which offer huge competition to CI's roster of products. And people are bombarded by TV ads urging them to manage your own wealth, which is not a good idea. CI needs to transition, namely buying wealth management companies across North America to diversify their portfolio. They;'re buying back a lot of shares, which signals that they have little idea what to do with their cash. The mutual fund model is a dinosaur.

Has always been a good long-term hold. Model price of $57, 110% upside. Nice dividend of 2.65%. Risk/reward is quite good. More acquisitive in the last 6 months, good long-term strategy.

BUY
Really likes the investment management sector. It should be pretty good business in a time of a decent market and reflation. When a group gets into gear, you want to look at the leaders.
