Stock Opinions by Sid Mokhtari

N/A
Market. Guest Sid Mokhtari of CIBC world markets guest hosted the show in Larry's absence. Where it stands today, risk rewards are not that great. You are close to your 200 day moving average. The energy sector is still a relative laggard from a relative strength perspective and that is an issue for him. Expect volatility to persist. The message from last year's Q4 is that volatility will be with us for a while longer. In Canada we saw last year better technical characteristics in the resource sector, except energy. Larger caps are still the way to go in the Canadian resource sector.

What happens when governments stop buying their own bonds? Will there be enough buyers? The path of Governments buying their own bonds is still going on but will someday come to an end.

DON'T BUY
A good name in terms of if you want to be prone to take some risk for potential returns. Similar to energy names it has lagged recently. You can be very patient with it if you want. Don’t expect it to break out easily. Buy the weakness and don’t chase strength. He does not go after it because it does not show any relative strength. It is a range trader.

N/A
US Dollar. There will continue to be significant divergences that will develop for the US $. In the short term you have been sitting against the 200 day moving average. But other signals he monitors suggest it will continue to decay.

BUY
It got printed in a business magazine over the weekend. It is a very cheap stock with a good yield. It has broken above medium to short term moving averages. It scores well on momentum metrics as well as the yield front. It is a good name for income exposure.
REAL ESTATE
BUY
Banks and the slowing housing market. How many houses have outstanding home equity loans and could they become a problem similar to sub-prime markets? He views the banks as market leaders for quite some time and you want exposure to them. It is a good thing. RY-T and TD-T are the leaders in his opinion.

HOLD
20% is a return of capital? You want to know what kind of dividends its holdings pay and what their risk profile is. He thinks you will be comfortable with this position.
E.T.F.'s
N/A
Educational Segment. A Closer Look At The Rally on the TSX. Always take a closer look to see what exactly is leading the markets. Look at what volumes are taking the market higher or lower. The RSI on a daily basis has a lot of noise, but on a weekly or monthly basis is gives you a sense of how deep the oversold condition is. When you get a nine month RSI below 30 on the TSX, your returns tend to be very compelling 6 to 12 months out. Based on historical observations, investors should use any kinds of weakness to participate effectively.
