This week there were 23 Top Picks and 2 ETF in a wide range of industries: Financials, Industrials, Technology, Basic Materials, ETF, Consumer, Telecommunications and Energy.
BAC vs. Canadian banks Prefers the Canadian banks. They over-reserved on Covid losses, so there should be some earnings recovery in 2021-22. This hasn't happened with the US banks. Regulators still hate the US banks because of 2008. Canada is a cleaner environment for banks, and any of them would do.
It's done so well over the years, you buy it when others don't want it, there's a lid on the price, and there's some negative press. He wouldn't bet against them.
This is the backbone and infrastructure of E-commerce and logistics. All the big box warehouses near airports are fully leased and they need more of it especially in major hubs. There are 100 properties in the US. They have good institutional support. They trade 10% less than some of their Canadian peers but 30% cheaper…
He prefers buying a insurance company directly like Manulife and Intact. Though well-run, FFH has a mixed bag of many assets. This mix adds a level of risk vs. pure insurers.
it is a good grower, with 75% of their contracts are take-or-pay inflation linked with 11 years as the average term. The 4-5% yield is positive. A source of stability and income. (Analysts’ price target is $64.92)
(A Top Pick Jan 22/19, Up 36%) There is some cyclicality in robotics in Japan, but they are one of two world leaders. He still owns it.
It's doing better now. Their sonor device looks for underwater mines and does underground mapping of pipelines. Earnings are expected to leap to 5 cents in 2021 to give it a 10x PE. If so, then there's a $1 target minimum. Lots of upside.
Results are accelerating. Multiples are cheap for a fortress balance sheet, riding digital tailwinds, enormous amount of cash. Yes, risk of antitrust. Business is improving, so much optionality. One of the best businesses in the world at a reasonable valuation. No dividend. (Analysts’ price target is $1917.31)
Likes e-commerce companies in China. There is better valuation and growth than US e-commerce companies. The ANT IPO stop has affected the stock. He would look at the 200-moving day average, which is around $240. You could start adding a position here. Makes sense longer-term.
Rumour of AMD buying Xilinx AMD would really benefit for Xilinx which makes great chips for autos, defence and telcos. Buying Xilinx would expand AMD's exposure to these sectors and their overall market. The deal is good, but only at the right price--if it happens. The AMD CEO is great. If the deal happens and…
A name he really likes and he's been buying. It is his forth largest position in his global growth fund. It has been re-rated. They hit the ball out of the park with their cloud division. It is the future of the company and integrates into the rest of their business really well.
Likes the business, though it's been a tough year. Potash and nitrogen are oversupplied, but this will clear up in 2021. Low cost, long life potash mines. High margin, retail stores are a growing part of the business and less cyclical. Empowering farmers with new tools. Good dividend, capital gains, and prospects.

The perfect poster child of the cyclical business. It was a short but they have been covering it recently. Not quite long though. It is coming off lows. Copper has done quite well. Commodities are starting to move and they benefit from this. Cashflow needs to improve before really entering.
(A Top Pick Sep 23/19, Up 15%) He's owned this since 2015. He feels bond yields will decline. As debt increases in the world, it stalls growth and leads to lower bond yields. During economy uncertainty, Canadian holders benefit from a weakening US dollar and lower yields, a double whammy. He will add to his…
(A Top Pick Jan 16/20, Down 9%) They bought this 2-3 months ago. The market was quite negative in 2018 and it has been consolidating. It's building a base right now. He feels that it will return and breakout.

Juicy dividend, which grows steadily. Predictable business model. Today's results seem fine. Share price is overreacting. Some decline in monthly revenue. One to own for steady and growing income over time.
At $45 oil, the target price would be $1.50. At current oil prices, it is trading at a 4% free cashflow yield. He believes this company will not be around for much longer. The valuation is very compelling. However, either they need to get bigger or to get out and be scaled up by someone…
There were developments where activists are pressuring banks to no longer lend to energy companies. However, energy is one way for the country to get out of the debt problem and in his opinion this is even more reason to be bullish.
(A Top Pick Aug 13/18, Down 61%) They disenfranchised the Canadian shareholders. He sold out sooner before the de listing, so did not do as badly, nor did his subscribers. He disagrees with their move.
Debt concerns? BXE took bankruptcy protection when debt became too much. There is no equity value in it any longer. Companies that have debt that matures in 2020 or 2021 will have issues. He sees no issues with BIR or TVE on this topic. The new Federal relief program for large companies may be difficult…
