COMMENT
Flyht Aerospace Solutions (FLY-X)

A great little Calgary-based company. An Infotech provider to aerospace. It has been around for about 15 years, and just recently emerged into profitability. This is the type of leader of tomorrow that he likes to invest in. A very cheap stock. It provides smart black box streaming off planes. They sell their product to the airlines as a streaming service, which helps the airlines maximize profitability of their planes.

TOP PICK
Freehold Royalties (FRU-T)

Very similar characteristics to PrairieSky (PSK-T). Historically people preferred PrairieSky because it was bigger and was absolutely a 100% pure royalty story. This one has had some working interest properties, and they are now getting rid of those, and is already 90% royalties, and will soon be 100%. Dividend yield of 4.2%. (Analysts’ price target is $16.50.)

WAIT
General Dynamics Corp. (GD-N)

This has had a great run. It has done really well since Mr. Trump was elected in November. He would stay away over the next 3 months. We are coming up to the US debt ceiling limit in the fall, and it is going to be very interesting to see what happens. One of the worst places to be, could be defence stocks. The stock did really well over the past year, so it is really expensive now.

PAST TOP PICK
Gilead Sciences Inc. (GILD-Q)

(A Top Pick Sept 6/16. Down 0.4%.) This was in a downtrend, but has finally broken into an uptrend. A cheap, cheap stock, trading at a single digit PE. The #1 provider of HIV drugs globally, and the #1 provider of hepatitis drugs. About 2-3 years ago, they introduced a revolutionary Hepatitis C drug which cured, so the inflow of patients dropped off. Pays about a 3% dividend. Cheap, cheap stock.

HOLD
Home Depot (HD-N)

(Market Call Minute.) A leader in home improvement retail. A little ahead of where he would like to buy it. Weak Buy to a Hold.

COMMENT
Lundin Mining Corp. (LUN-T)

Mining is a difficult business. When he is investing in resources, he much prefers oil and gas. The companies tend to be much more diversified on a property perspective. This company is an example of one that has been well-managed. They keep their capital allocation hat on and really go after the best properties. He would have this as a Hold to a Buy.

TOP PICK
Microsoft (MSFT-Q)

He likes the Web services. This has had a good run over the last year, but thinks it is justified by the evolution of the company picking up LinkedIn. A real competitor to Amazon and Web services. Dividend yield of 2.1%. (Analysts’ price target is $82.00.)

BUY
Neptune Tech & Bioresource (NEPT-T)

A super frustrating stock. It has been discarded by the market because it has taken much longer to recover. New management came in about 2 years ago, and have done an excellent job. Last year they more than doubled revenues and turned it profitable after a number of years of struggling. The really exciting part is that they own 35% of Acasti Pharmaceuticals. In his viewpoint, this is a huge opportunity. The stock is trading around a $25 million market cap, and they have almost $10 million in cash. Going into phase 3 trials, and thinks their drug has multi-billion-dollar potential.

COMMENT
Nvidia Corp (NVDA-Q)

Great tech company, but really expensive. It has had a huge run and he would stay on the sidelines until there is a huge ramp up in earnings to justify the ramp up in the stock price.

BUY on WEAKNESS
Oracle (ORCL-N)

He likes this, but doesn’t own it. A leader in databases and a number of other areas in software. They are starting to make some progress, and he would categorize this as a more conservative way to play technology. It has had a run, so he wouldn’t be a buyer here. In the lower $40, it would be quite interesting.

HOLD
Starbucks (SBUX-Q)

(Market Call Minute.) A great company, and he would classify it as a Weak Buy to a Hold. If it dropped another 10% he would definitely be a buyer.

DON'T BUY
Shopify Inc. (SHOP-T)

The market leader in what it does. They help small businesses get an online presence effectively. They’ll become profitable eventually. At these levels, you are factoring in 10-20 years of growth, and taking a lot of risk. The company has not made a penny of earnings yet. If it went down 50%-60% he would be interested, but not at these levels.

BUY
Spartan Energy Corp (SPE-T)

A solid Junior to intermediate oil producer. The energy sector took quite a beating in the 1st half. Feels energy is probably in a bottoming process. This is one of the companies that has kept themselves in good shape from a balance sheet perspective. A relatively low cost operation. Good properties in southern Saskatchewan.

HOLD
Visa Inc. (V-N)

Great, great company. One of the central players in the electronic commerce. Purchases of anything are happening increasingly electronically, and the credit cards are right at the front of that. Great franchise and great business, but it is trading at a 52-week all-time high. Expensive.
