A Comment -- General Comments From an Expert 

Market.  There will be opportunities to deploy cash at lower values.  There is complacency and at an inflection point in the way central banks are going with interest rates.  After this 8 to 9 year experiment of near zero interest rates he is watching how bond and equity markets react.  Things are priced to perfection.  You have to look hard to find opportunities.  There is also the option of waiting for things to pull back in general.  A pull back in markets would give people an opportunity to get in with cash on the sidelines.  We are in the 8th or 9th inning in the bull market.

PAST TOP PICK
Air Canada (AC-T)

(A Past Top Pick Oct 25/16, Up 105.33%)  It has transitioned to a free cash flow story as they reduced debt.  You have to expect continued good news at these price levels.

DON'T BUY
Aphria Inc (APH-T)

One of the larger players – very large greenhouse operations.  One of the early movers in the space that has scale.  He prefers another (Med Relief – LEAF-T).  He was skeptical of the space but now he feels it will be a big industry.  APH-T will have reasonably low costs.  There is no question there will be large volumes but regulatory pressures are an uncertainty.

BUY
Brick Brewing Company Ltd. (BRB-T)

Management did a great job of turning the business around, including the lunching of new products.  It has been a good story.  One of the reasons for the pullback was that it had run up a lot.  Also, we had a colder summer and that leads to less consumption.  It is a potential takeout target.  The trend has been for consolidation and so with this pull back it could be an interesting entry point.

DON'T BUY
Cineplex Inc (CGX-T)

He had been short and has covered.  The whole industry, including the US, has been under pressure.  There are longer term risks.  It has always traded at a premium and then they had a weak quarter.  He wonders what the long term future of this company is.  It is not cheap enough to make it interesting on the buy side.

HOLD
Canadian National R.R. (CNR-T)

It is a very well run company and rails are a good proxy for the North American economy.  It is a good way to participate.  He is cautious on the Canadian economy, however, but the rails had good runs over the last few years.  He does not hold it right now.  It is a good one to hold and to participate in.

DON'T BUY
Hudson Bay Co. (HBC-T)

It is a tricky one.  He has been a shareholder in the past.  He recommends staying away because it is a complicated situation.  He questions issuing equity that is dilutive if there was so much value in their real estate.  If the retail business can’t afford to pay the rent eventually then it does not substantiate the value on those properties.

PAST TOP PICK
IBI Group (IBG-T)

(A Past Top Pick Oct 25/16, Up 11.45%)  He still really likes it.  They have a technology software business that is 16% of revenue.  They monitor transit systems and a number of other software applications.  If they ever spun that off they would get a high price for it.  Management owns a lot of stock themselves.

HOLD
JP Morgan Chase & Co (JPM-N)

He has been trimming his position because it has been doing quite well.  It pays a nice dividend and they recently reported a good quarter.  It is a little more expensive than it used to be.  It is at 13 times forward earnings and it reflects the benefits of reducing regulation and rising interest rates.  Some of that good news is priced in.  He has reduced his position size to some extent.

TOP PICK
Greenspace Brands Inc (JTR-X)

It is a great business and one of the only publicly traded organic food companies. They have great distribution through L-T and EMP-T etc.  Organic brands are gaining more market share.  He thinks eventually they will be bought.  It has come off recently but not for any particular reason.  He is adding at these levels.  (Analysts’ target: $2.10).

HOLD
Manulife Financial (MFC-T)

He can’t comment on the day to day performance and possible short selling.  They have a very significant presence in fast growing Asia.  He has nothing negative to say about them.  They suffered from complicated accounting.  If you think interest rates will go up over time then they will benefit.  You should not worry too much about day to day volatility.

PAST TOP PICK
Maple Leaf Foods (MFI-T)

(A Past Top Pick Oct 25/16, Up 10.61%)  He still likes the business and they are progressing with their turnaround.  A lot of the good news is priced into to it so he would take profits and look to get back in if it pulled back.

SELL
Magna Int'l. (A) (MG-T)

He is fairly negative on the auto parts sector.  It has had a good run here.  There are two primary uncertainties.  Where are we in the auto cycle – at peak levels? – He thinks auto sales will moderate slightly.  Then there is the impact of the electric car, which do not need as many parts.  Then there is NAFTA which is unpredictable.  Until there is more clarity regarding NAFTA, there is risk in this sector.

HOLD
Pollard Banknote Ltd (PBL-T)

Lottery ticket manufacturer.  He has owned it for a while.  It is not that well followed but a couple of analysts have written reports on it.  Going forward they are looking for other acquisitions that are businesses they can get into, related to lotteries.  They are dominant.

BUY
Pfizer Inc (PFE-N)

A Pharma US stock with dividends and growth.  PFE-T is the one he would recommend.  It is a very well run company with a steady dividend and a good pipeline of new drugs.  It has pretty good shareholder friendly management that buy back stock and create value.  It is his favourite way to participate in aging demographics.
