General Market Comment 

February 7, 2019

Market. Multi asset funds have struggled over the last while. Last year was a whip saw year where we were up and down dramatically. He focuses on structural long term themes. In 1994 he learned not to get too aggressive on the sell side because the recovery comes so quickly. This is playing out again. He made a call to stay with his positions into year end and then they rallied back. Last December's exit from the markets dwarfed the worst 4 week period in 2008.

HOLD
Hess Corp.(HES-N) 

February 7, 2019

It is interesting because they have some very large finds. One is about as large an oil find as there has been in the last 20 years. It has rallied off the lows and has come back quite nicely although not rallying as well as others in the group. It is not one of the leadership groups.

CGI Group (A)(GIB.A-T) 

February 7, 2019

There is a secular theme where companies will continue to spend on IT development. The industry is growing between 5 and 6%, roughly twice the growth rate of the economy. They can now make another acquisition and he is watching for potential catalysts.

On a 12 months basis it is better than 85% of the companies in the NYSE. Healthcare has come back quite nicely. This is trading well above a rising 150 day average. This is a theme you can depend on. Managed Healthcare. Continue to hold it.

Waste Connections(WCN-T) 

February 7, 2019

This selloff in the fall was a correction and not a transition. The US economy is in good shape. This one is in a good industry. It is trading at a new relative high. If you believe we have a soft landing this year, you want to own things focused on the US domestic economy.

Enbridge(ENB-T) 

February 7, 2019

It has been really good at executing within their industry. They have strong metrics that they judge their operations against. They have grown their dividend over time. We are seeing a reflation in the economy and we need a rising stream of dividends going forward, which this has.

BUY
XIC-T vs. SPY-N vs. VT-N. After a sharp decline after a rally you are likely to retest lows. The thrust off the bottom was so significant. 10 of the last 12 corrections never went back to retest the lows. Positioning is so defensive that people are not likely to get the retesting of the lows they are waiting for. The commodity complex could see strength. All three should do well.

SELL
Inter Pipeline(IPL-T) 

February 7, 2019

It is a bit of a poor cousin to ENB-T. Despite the fact that defensives sectors did well through the fall, it is still at a 52 week low relative to the market so its been signifncantly under performing. He would stay in ENB-T, but look even more for dividend growth. He suggests looking more to dividend growth like financials vs the big pipes.

COMMENT
What comes screaming back is the previous leaders. There is persistence. Internet retail is the first one to break down and the first one to reverse. Basic materials are the area starting to make a turn. It would be complimentary to add some Canada.

Magna Int'l. (A)(MG-T) 

February 7, 2019

The auto and auto sector rolled over early last year with a mid-cycle slow down. This sector is relatively outperforming now. He thinks we have seen a turn. We need a pull back. Then they will perform well over the next year.

PAST TOP PICK
Microsoft(MSFT-Q) 

February 7, 2019

(A Top Pick Jan 31/18, Up 13%) There is a secular theme in software as a service, as well as the cloud and this one is right in the middle of this. They are the absolute leader in their space. It pulled off its highs, but as one of the last stocks to sell off, it is a company you can buy here and hold it for 2 to 3 years.

PAST TOP PICK
Charles Schwab Corp(SCHW-N) 

February 7, 2019

(A Top Pick Jan 31/18, Down 14%) Even if you look at a turn in rates, themes have an interruption. This one was 2-4 months long. We had that last fall. He would buy it here, or IAI-N. It is a great entry point.
