We're not in a frothy market as in January when investors piled on the bandwagon. We're currently not in a euphoric state. We have a bit of room to go, but we are getting stretched. We have at least a year before we get really worried, assuming we don't see a lot more rate hikes. We should we fine going into the second half of 2018, but we're beyond 9 years in this rally. Next year would mark a record stretch for a rally. US equities are still bullish, especially tech. Canadian has some catching up to do. He sees value in Europe and Japan. In Canada, don't look at sectors, but pick individual stocks. That said, energy has done well, like Suncor, though oil this week is in retreat--maybe rotate out of that. Telcos aren't faring well either. In spaces like healthcare, be selective.

Market and interest rate cycles:  Bond market performance has been weak in both Canada and the U.S. Current 2.9-3% U.S. 10-year yields are still low to those who remember the 5-10% days, but compared to the moves from last year, these are big. So, yes, it's been a quick, sudden move. Some may say this is already a bear market for bonds. The street thinks rates will keep going up and up. But remember the economy is in a late-stage cycle where interest rates do move higher, though the Fed may raise rates too fast. We're getting close to the end of this rate cycle, moving as high as 3.5% which could drag on markets. Given the strong U.S. economy, he sees two more rate hikes this year in the U.S. as well as Canada.

What are your thoughts on Canadian banks? He likes BMO, TD and Royal for their valuations. He bought TD in the Q1 pullback and has shot up, surpassing his expectations. He wouldn't add to Canadian banks now though they offer decent value on the upside. Be prepared to pull back on Canadian banks if there is a market downturn. The big risk here is if interest rates rise higher than expected and effects mortgages.

TOP PICK
BCE Inc.(BCE-T) 

June 6, 2018

The stock is well-positioned, though wireless demand has slowed. Average use per user has grown, which is a good sign. Pays a dividend above 5%. (Analysts' price target: $59.50)

COMMENT
CitiGroup(C-N) 

June 6, 2018

Last year, there was a lot of optimism for U.S. banks. The market got ahead of itself with the deregulation promised by Trump. Currently, Citibank is trading at decent levels and this is a good time to get in. Mortgages may soften, so that
may be a headwind.

DON'T BUY

A troubled stock that's disappointed investors. Whenever there's good news, like possibly selling two channels in Quebec to BCE, it disappoints. It also has credit and leverage issues. The dividend may be unstable.

Walt Disney(DIS-N) 

June 6, 2018

It's been a yo-yo ride. A good stock with decent value. Their content is solid and the company has opportunities for expansion. The current stock price is decent. It's unlikely it'll return to recent highs though given we're late in the cycle.

Dollarama Inc.(DOL-T) 

June 6, 2018

Every time investors think this stock has run its course, it pull another rabbit out of the hat, like adding 1,700 more stores in Canada. He likes it and sees good growth. A defensive play when we're late in the cycle.

Emera Inc(EMA-T) 

June 6, 2018

He likes the utility space, given we are in the late-rate cycle. Emera is one of the more solid utilities. Valuations are attractive for an entry point. However, these stocks are at risk if interest rates rise quickly.

Enbridge(ENB-T) 

June 6, 2018

The pipelines have been pressured this year due to troubles in building pipelines. They're also interest-rate sensitive. ENB offers some decent value now with solid growth prospects. The dividend is sustainable. Look at this and start
picking away at it. There's still uncertainty around the Kinder Morgan pipeline--who will eventually buy it?

Fortis Inc.(FTS-T) 

June 6, 2018

You want a utility with heavy exposure in regulated markets to ensure stablility. This stock has been under pressure, so it's attractive at current levels. Prdiects it'll hit $48 depending on interest rate hikes. (Analysts' price target: $48.08)

COMMENT
Hudson Bay Co.(HBC-T) 

June 6, 2018

It's modestly undervalued now. Restructuring has borne some fruit, though the market hasn't responded to HBC in kind. Them getting out of luxury lines makes sense at this stage in the economy with limited discetionary spending. He prefers placing this in the retail, and not real estate, space. This is a consumer discretionary stock late in the cycle.

Nutrien Ltd.(NTR-T)

It's had a poor start after the merger, disappointing investors. They've achieved some cost savings and efficiencies, true. You're buying this for the long term, and he forsees a 10% gain over 12 months.
