Stock Opinions by Ian Fung

COMMENT

Market Outlook He thinks the impact of Coronavirus is bigger than what some may be thinking, based on the numbers of those infected keep rising. He thinks the Fed Reserve will continue to provide stimulus and expects we may see the Chinese government follow suit as well. They have been keeping cash on the sidelines in case the "V" recovery that many expect does not materialize. If supplies are constrained, how will this impact demand for commodities and for Asian products?

BUY on WEAKNESS

Mastercard is a great company that is very similar to Visa. The move towards digital payments is continuing. They both have a great global reach, both for credit and debit business. You can keep buying in on dips.

DON'T BUY

This is a relatively cheap tech company, but that could be from the fact they have segments that have not been befitting from all the tech trends. They have a lot of legacy assets that are not growing as fast. He would not be a buyer. (Analysts’ price target is $150.33)

electrical / electronic
COMMENT

He likes the UPS name. There are really only two big players in the space, them and FedEx. He prefers FedEx and owns that one. The problem is that there is a growing need for capital to move towards same-day delivery. He thinks FedEx did a smart thing pushing back on Amazon pricing terms and they have reduced their exposure to them to only 1% of revenues.

Transportation
PARTIAL BUY

He has admired them for a long time. They are an aggregator of smaller niche profitable businesses. This generates a lot of cash and is well diversified. They have evolved into more digital technology companies and has adapted well. He would scale into a buy as it is pretty expensive here.

electrical / electronic
BUY

He still likes this company and thinks they are still in the early stages of them taking market share from Intel. He likes their moves into gaming and data centres. Pricing in semi-conductors seems to be stabilizing, which will continue to allow tail winds to continue. It will be a volatile stock, but over the long term it is a good investment.

electrical / electronic
HOLD

This is a prime example of how stocks will correct sharply when earnings cause a stumble. The management team has always done well. Packaging is being impacted by the Caronavirus. He would be hesitant to sell it here.

packaging / containers
BUY

He likes the company. On a larger theme, they will benefit from the retirement home trend and are subsidized by the government. The industry is ripe for consolidation. He also likes the dividend. Yield 5%

PAST TOP PICK

(A Top Pick Jun 06/19, Up 23%) A maker of computer software for chip manufacturing. They are benefiting from the trend of more AI, cloud and autonomous driving. Chips are getting more complex and the need for software is increasing. He liked their recent earnings report. A time to add to a position.

Technology
PAST TOP PICK

(A Top Pick Jun 06/19, Up 18%) One of the largest consulting companies in the world. He liked how they have evolved in areas like digital innovation, cloud applications and security. It is a lower multiple way of playing the space, although they are a little smaller than their competitors. They operate from government to financial services and communications. He is still very bullish.

PAST TOP PICK

(A Top Pick Jun 06/19, Up 12%) They are financial services software for compliance. He likes their recurring revenue. As there is much consolidation going on in the industry, there is a need for increased efficiencies and their products provide that. They had an earnings stumble last summer, but it has since recovered after changing out some key management personnel.

Technology
HOLD

He likes the company. However, if you stumble at these valuations the market will punish you. When they reported earnings this week it was impacted negatively. As there is a move towards one-day shipping, they are well positioned. There is no threat of Amazon coming to Canada to take them on directly -- they actually bought into the company.

Transportation & Environmental Services
BUY

He is a big fan of this company and likes their management team. Their own risk management tolerance is low. A lot of buildings in Toronto and Vancouver, but they also hold office space in tight markets. They find older buildings and turn into nice new spaces. The balance sheet is healthy.
