General Market Comment 

August 30, 2018

Market.  There was a ruling against trans-mountain pipeline today.  The US is not cheap enough to sell his US dollars to come back.  It could be an economic downturn catalyst but probably will not be.  NAFTA is critical for us to leverage of the US economic success.  He is putting client's money to work in the US.  Canada has major issues.  You have to be selective in Canada.  You are looking for companies with US exposure, income and earnings.  Today's news in the energy sector is not positive.

Aecon Group Inc(ARE-T)

Model price is $14, so it is below where it is trading at.  It is at EBV plus 1, and we have not had a breakout.  Wait for a buy signal.  He thinks it will come back.  There are better opportunities elsewhere.

Model price is $157.26.  He sees it as an opportunity to pick this stock up now.  It is above its model price and he has had it for some time until selling recently but it was moving from a value name into a growth name.  He would be a buyer here.  It is a good name.

Power Financial Corp(PWF-T) 

August 30, 2018

Model price is $45.06.  54% upside but there is no catalyst for this stock to get moving.  It is dead money.  If it is trading below its EBV -5, there is something wrong with its balance sheet and this one is too big relative to its earnings.  The regulators are really rough in the financial industry.  Use your tax loss.

PAST TOP PICK
CitiGroup(C-N) 

August 30, 2018

(A Top Pick Aug 4/17, Up 6%)  He has had good returns since he has bought it but it has gone flat.  They have room to expand their dividends even more.  They are on an aggressive buy back program.  If the US equity markets are going to go higher it has to be with the financials.  He is still staying with it.  There is about 9% upside according to model price.

General Market Comment 

August 30, 2018

Canadian Banks.  You always want to buy them on a pull back.  We have not had one for quite some time.  A 10% or more correction and he would be a buyer.  In general they are not cheap enough to buy and not expensive enough to sell.  You have to hold them.
