COMMENT
General Market Comment 

February 8, 2019

Market Outlook He thinks the US dollar is going to go a lot higher. The 2018 returns of Canadian investors benefited by about 7-8% he thinks, if you invested in US holdings. On US equities, he is cautious right now. After the big decline in December, he thinks it is a precursor of what is yet to come. 2019 will be a year of the Central Banks, who will have to maneuver to keep things going. This will make the equity market fraught with explosions and collapses. Last year the Trump tax incentive lead to massive earnings increases and he wonders how that can be followed.

COMMENT
CGI Group (A)(GIB.A-T) 

February 8, 2019

CGI vs Open Text? He would like to own both of these. Having some growth in your portfolio is good -- especially if the economy is going to slow. He likes the yield of Open Text. He likes the predictably of earnings with CGI, so slightly favours it.

BUY on WEAKNESS
Visa Inc.(V-N) 

February 8, 2019

He thinks the stock will retrace to about $126, where he would be a buyer again. He would be "willing to go into war" with this stock. Although it is trading sideways, he would buy more on a pullback.

BUY on WEAKNESS
Applied Materials(AMAT-Q) 

February 8, 2019

He would wait to add to any position -- look for it retest the lows of December. It is a cyclical, so you want to make sure you buy them cheap enough. He is in a trader frame of mind, so he would target a buy at $30 and sell at $46.

COMMENT
Metlife(MET-N) 

February 8, 2019

Insurance companies are trading below their lower benchmarks -- making him think there are issues with their balance sheets especially in a deflationary recession environment. This could lead to lower short term rates, which could impair their earnings. He would be cautious going forward for all insurance companies.

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.

PAST TOP PICK
CitiGroup(C-N) 

February 8, 2019

(A Top Pick Jan 12/18, Down 17%) December almost caused him heart failure. There was either something systematic happening in the economy or their balance sheet was in severe trouble. He wants to see a pullback to $57 to consider buying it again. He would be worried about the economy if this retests the recent lows.

Take profit here? He would take profit at these levels. He worries about issues with trade with China. He still sees possibly another 50% upside, but thinks it prudent to take profit here.
