Stock Opinions by Kevin O'Leary

WEAK BUY
Nvidia Corp
He's miserable holding this, but every sector of the economy will be using their chips. It's pain, but he will keep adding. It's an infrastructure play. In tech, he would own this and Broadcom.
computer software / processing
BUY
Good cash flow and balance sheet. Oil prices will hold here for the next 18 months, and won't rise much.
oil / gas
BUY
Ford Motor
Ford: It's a supply chain problem. If the problem was solved, shares would hit $20, not $12 now. GM is a play on EV's. They've spent a lot on EV's but don't get credit for it. But there's a lot less volatility with GM than Tesla in the EV space. GM is hiring a ton of young, smart engineers and pouring a lot of capex. Over time, they will be a big player in EV's, which will be affordable.

BUY on WEAKNESS
Twitter, Inc
He sold it over the summer and didn't get back in, because he expected shares to come back down to $35. It's one of the worst-run social media companies. He doesn't know why Elon Musk didn't negotiate for lower, but accepted the higher price. He hopes Musk cleans house--it's a horrible company. He sold it earlier and missed an opportunity.

DON'T BUY
Apple Inc
Trading at 23x PE and he thinks it will fall to 21x, even 18x. Apple is no longer a tech stock, but ALSO a consumer electronics stock. This is a problem, because CE margins eventually will get compressed. Tech itself remains a growth story, but the PEs are too high. So, he prefers companies with less growth, but more cash flow.
electrical / electronic
PARTIAL SELL
TJX Companies
He doesn't own much of this anymore, because their return on assets started to collapse.
clothing stores
BUY
Lamar Advertising
It's beaten up enough. Advertising will continue even if there's a soft recession in 2023. It pays over a 5% dividend.
REAL ESTATE
COMMENT
There's been a good 50% retracement from this year's (June) lows. Earnings drive the market and the recent earnings season wasn't too bad. Was good. Question is, when is this slowdown coming? He doesn't see it yet. So, where do investors go? Bonds pay little. Only high-quality stocks offer a decent return.
Unknown
BUY
Apple Inc
Owns a 5% weighting here. Their baseline metrics are very good. A quality company. He has a 20% weighting in tech. Never before has this sector permeated the 10 other S&P sectors as now. This sector saved the American economy.
electrical / electronic
BUY
Microsoft
You can't run a bank or any business without the tools MSFT offers. Tech should always be the anchor of a portfolio. Who cares if the Fed raises rates? You can't run an economy without tech.
computer software / processing
COMMENT
Morgan Stanley just cut their price target It's very painful to hold this. The market is undecided about Zuckerberg's move into the metaverse. You have to believe in his vision to hold this. That's one reason to own it. If you are giant brand like Nike that will advertise in the metaverse, you need to do it in a curated platform so you can control the message. If you don't like that vision, don't own Meta. That said, Meta remains the ad platform for small business. This stock has been slaughtered in share price and weighting. Meta has to prove to him--to show him.
0
SELL
He sold it. This has really performed. But he's trimming his portfolio. These cloud names are volatile. He's fine taking profits.
Technology
SELL
Diageo PLC
He sold this. No compelling reason to own it. It recovered with the market and offers reasonable metrics, but there are better stocks--he wants good cash flow to protect him in a downturn. He's getting picky.
food processing
SELL
Boeing
He is selling Boeing. He had a good run and return, but he won't know upside until China resolves their issues and signals more demand for Boeing planes. Doesn't see anymore upside now.
