Thinks at some time BNS will make an offer to acquire them. They may be looking to sell. Thinks they are holding out for a better offer. Could go for $30. They raise dividends every year and he sees it going higher. This is really the only great one remaining.

Markets have done well in last year. Mutual fund companies got hurt when people were fleeing and they benefited when they people came back. This one did not. Likes the long-term fundamentals. Wait for a sell-off. It’s in BNS’s best interest to buy CI in the long run.

Likes the company and the sector. A tremendous amount of money on the sidelines in Canada. A lot of it is parked in money market funds, brokerage and savings accounts. That will move back into the market and fund companies will see their profit margins increase. Good dividend.

Top Short Coming under a lot of pressure. Dropped dramatically over the past year because of the declining revenue streams and the leverage they have on that. Would get out at $12. Short term (6 months), not a long-term trade.

Financials and particularly funds are not what they have been for the last 20 years. Funds are under pressure. It's going to be a tough go.

Proving to be one of the survivors and main companies left in the competitive field of mutual funds. Makes very good acquisitions. We are now into the RRSP season, which is a good time of year for them.

Converting to an income trust. The bloom is off the income trust rose. 7%, which this company will be yielding, is not that attractive when compared to Treasury bills at 4%. A good company. Watch how it trades for 3/6 months.

Converting into a trust. This recognises that they have reached the limits of their growth. For larger companies that convert, you are frequently better off waiting for post conversion.

A good company. Management is focused on realising value. Have increased the dividend. If the tax rules do not change, they have indicated they will convert to a trust. If they do, there is another 10% upside at least.
