WEAK BUY
Inter Pipeline(IPL-T) 

February 8, 2019

It is yielding 8.2%. What bothers him is that the $1.71 dividend is well above earnings of $1.54 currently. Why are they paying more than the earnings? This creates negative compounding returns. He sees 35% upside on the stock and would consider a buy at $18. There are a lot of warts that gives him some pause.

Microsoft(MSFT-Q) 

April 25, 2018

It is hard to buy ahead of earnings.  The trend has been good earnings leading to a weak price.  He loves the company since $15 and it continues to do everything well.  He would buy more at $90, but would wait for earnings first.

January 5, 2017

His model price is $71.65, a 17% downside.  It is cheap in its balance sheet.  The fundamentals are coming up to meet the stock price.  He thinks the action will be elsewhere in 2017.  There is potential upside as the earnings come in.

Goldcorp Inc(G-T) 

October 26, 2015

This is the hardest place in this market.  He owns a few golds.  He bought some last week.  They are cheap, but from day to day the market just pounds this group.  He told us to sell G-T years ago.  He sees a bottoming, but this is a hard group to own.  These are cyclical.  The market is telling you that it is trying to bottom.  Buy these stocks when the analyst community does not like them.  We had a positive transit a couple of weeks ago.

He has a model price of $31.71, a 33.5% upside. We are in the 8th inning of these particular cyclical stocks, so he would be very, very cautious.

Model price is $43.65, a 10% premium to the closing price of $39.90. There are other parts of the auto market that are attractive. Parts look a lot more attractive than the producers. However, you should still do well.

This is trading right on his model price of $40.15. It is very rare to get this stock at his model price. He sees large cap value stocks doing very, very well over the next 3-5 years.

His model price is $47.57, a 66% differential. Feels it could trade up to the $33 level. The issue is what is happening to commodity prices. He worries about what is going on over in China. Thinks there is a slowdown happening. No warmth on this one.
