SELL
He would not touch this with a 10 foot pole. The change in senior management worries him. The recent bullish bounce is a good sell opportunity as he targets only $88 on this. He is wary of the Chinese trade war, which is likely to get worse. If the world grinds down in growth, China will be hit hard.

TOP PICK
Intel(INTC-Q) 

February 8, 2019

An old-tech play that still has 71% upside. A new CEO can hopefully shake things up. A good place to hide in the semi-conductor space. You can't even see a measurable pullback in its December trading -- really stands out. Yield 2.6% (Analysts’ price target is $53.00)

COMMENT
General Market Comment 

November 2, 2018

He feels the S&P is at fair value and has another 30% of upside. He feels the Canadian dollar has more weakness to come. He expects the Republicans to win more seats in the House during the Mid-Terms, which would cause a substantial rally in the US markets. October has always been a seasonally weak month, so he expects a quick rebound in markets. Autos, consumer discretionary and other sectors have been recently decimated and are great value if the market is able to side step a major recession in 2019. He believes President Trump is correct in going after China as it pertains to the massive trade surplus with the US.

SPECULATIVE BUY
Micron Technology(MU-Q) 

November 2, 2018

It is supposed to earn $10.46 per share next year, but the market is only projecting less than $2 per share. About 80% of their sales are into China. He worries about the potential trade war impacts. They have accused their Chinese partner on a project for stealing intellectual property. He would peck away at this, but sees $19 as a possible lower test point. They have a very small position in Micron.
