WEAK BUY
Ford Motor(F-N) 

April 1, 2015

Interest rates are very low, which is a huge factor when making car purchases. Car buying has increased. It really comes down to how many more cars they can sell. It has been a good run so far. From a company point of view, can they earn that cost of capital back? For the next 6-7 months, it would be an okay investment, but he wouldn’t be loading up the truck on it as of yet.

Potential with L-T with Shoppers acquisition.  You have more of a food retailer with Shoppers.  Compared to Walgreens, he prefers it over L-T because food retailing is so tough in Canada.

Not cheap. Doesn't think you're going to shoot the lights out on growth, but it has a good yield, and over the long-term, could think of worse things to own.

If you really, really want to own this, take a little bit. Buy it so that you are in the game. Very expensive, and a market correction might help in getting an investor a core position. On his radar list.

A well-managed REIT. There are a number of headwinds with interest rates going up, potential debt maturities coming due. They have some office space in Calgary which is a bit under pressure, but not catastrophic. Good income. A “wait and see” situation.

Air Canada(AC-T)

Don’t buy it here after the run up.  Airlines are not a superb business, high fixed costs.  If you are looking to get in, wait for a pullback.  The sector is volatile.

Bank of Nova Scotia(BNS-T) 

November 14, 2014

Last results were a bit lumpier than people were hoping for. New CEO is probably putting his stamp on a number of things. Given that there were some job cuts, the big potential worry for him would be on the Latin American side, is that a one-off or will it be dragging into the future. Given the yield, valuation is very compelling, compared to the other banks. He would like to wait another quarter.

This is more exposed to the emerging-markets. Based on his view on potential growth going forward, this one would be in the good camp if you had to pick a bank. They’ve been under pressure with the emerging-market pullbacks, but the bigger risk for them is in the political side. Both US candidates seem to be pretty stuck on pushing the banks further.

The Canadian rails have certainly come off in the last little while. They’ve had a fantastic run. His view on this would be that you have time to wait.

Feels the rails are in for a bit of a rough go. There are a bunch of factors working against them. Oil shipping by rail is a factor and consumer demand is pulling back. The change in the CEO will create some potential small dislocation. If holding for a long-term, it is a great one.

At today’s price, you can wait on the sidelines. Eventually when the split happens, you will get the majority in the form of a leasing company and the balance will be a spinoff, which could create some uncertainty. You will then be open to pick and choose which particular company you would like to own.

The coyote fur controversy hasn’t had much effect on the IPO given that the stock price is up materially today. He doesn’t think it is going to have a very big impact going forward. This has had a great run, so he would be cautious and sit on the sidelines for a while.

Would not buy at this level.  The stock has had a great run.  You get renovations as well as new home building benefiting them. It will come down eventually.  Should do well as people start to repair after winter storm damage.  No rush to sell.  Best in class.  There will be a lot of pent up demand.

With their REIT, the real estate assets are better than the Canadian Tire deal. Other REITS have a portfolio, whereas the Loblaws or Canadian Tire, it's one thing only.

Hyper competitive sector. A one time cash hoard. Wait to see what their growth forcast is.

He looked at this in 2 areas. One is investments and the other is in their core business of selling insurance. They are having a tough time on the investment side, with corporate bond spreads widening out. This will have a short-term negative affect on insurance companies. However, their actual insurance business is quite strong. Their recent acquisition and exposure in China is quite positive. With the volatility here, there could be a better time to enter the insurance business.
