COMMENT
“A” shares versus “B” shares? B shares have one vote per share while the A shares have 10 votes per share. Since both prices are so close to each other, if you buy gold for the A shares because of the extra votes you get.

COMMENT
Corning Inc(GLW-N) 

May 14, 2012

You would think with all the smart phones and tablets that are being marketed that they would be doing better. Stock seems to continually being bumping along. He would prefer Cirrus Logic (CRUS-Q) which does all of the sound chips for the iPhone and iPad.

Sun Life Financial Inc(SLF-T)

Yield of about 5.5%. Likes it here. Doesn't see a whole lot of downside. Will be a slow, painful recovery but it will be a recovery.

COMMENT
Would you Short this one? No. We have seen a lot of the damage come out of the stock in the last couple of days. Stock pays a decent dividend, so if you are Shorting it, you have to cover the dividend is well.

Would still avoid this one. Their earnings power has been greatly diminished. There has been a lot of dilution. Trading at about 20X next year's earnings. Still have consumer problems. He switched from this to MasterCard (MA-N).

Would stay on the sidelines a little longer. Would like to see the stock build a little bit better base. Company has been plagued by decreasing sales by consumers, but also by internal management problems.

Suncor Energy Inc(SU-T)

Would probably be a buyer but prefers Canadian Natural (CNQ-T) because of the greater emphasis on the oil sands production.

TOP PICK
Sears Holdings Corp.(SHLD-Q) 

December 8, 2010

Would not normally be a stock he would be interested in but they continually shrink the float. 4 years ago there were 155 million share outstanding and now there is 110 million. Great brands and good underlying real estate assets.

BUY
DuPont(DD-N) 

June 20, 2012

Would lower oil prices help this company? Oil is one of the input costs in their chemical division but that is only one of many of their divisions. Growth in this company is coming from their agriculture products. 11X next year’s earnings. Good yield. Very attractive entry point.

Altaba Inc(AABA-Q) 

February 22, 2011

Would continue to avoid it. When you look at multiple, it is 2 or 3 points higher than google. It has been struggling and loosing market share. Doesn’t make sense.
