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.

(A Top Pick Aug 4/17, Up 36%)  This is old tech.  His model price is $82.64, or a 70% upside.  This stock just can't get moving.  The CEO was just replaced.  He would buy it here.  Your chances of another 40% are quite high if the CEO works out.

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.

BUY on WEAKNESS

In March it was down to $90.  Since then it has done nothing but go up.  He has a model price of $131.66, or a 14% upside.  Any sort of pull back you want to buy it.  He would love to buy it at $87.

Linamar Corp(LNR-T) 

August 30, 2018

He would hold it.  It is a great divergence between what the market is doing and what the fundamentals are saying.  Everyone is predicting doom and gloom in the auto sector.  They are right in the heart of Canadian auto parts.  His model price is 102% from where it is.  Once we get clarity on NAFTA and where we are in the auto sector, he would look at it.

Altagas Ltd(ALA-T)

They are not even making their dividend.  There is a reverse compounding thing going on where your book value is being eroded.  It is a losing proposition.

Enbridge(ENB-T) 

August 30, 2018

He thinks it goes to $34.84.  Once they fold in the income fund the balance sheet will get a lot bigger, which is negative for the stock.  With a 6% yield, it is all their income.  There is better value elsewhere.

TOP PICK
Intel(INTC-Q) 

August 30, 2018

If it got into the NVDA business he could not calculate what it would be worth.  The model price is $82.64, or a 70% upside.  The stock is much unloved and has a monopoly position.  He is interested in catalysts that might come along.  (Analysts’ target: $56.45).

August 30, 2018

Management is really up there in terms of reputation.  Model price is $32.70 or a 5% upside.  They increased their dividend a month and a half ago.  There is still more dividend growth coming.  The financials need to lead the bull market higher.  (Analysts’ target: $34.39).
