(A Top Pick Aug 18/09. N/A.) Market is discounting a V shaped recovery predicated upon large amounts of fiscal stimulus and even greater amounts of monetary stimulus. Feels both of these stimuli will begin to wane once we get into the summer of 2010 (?) and he expects a square root recovery. He recommends 25%-30%.

Splitting between their oil and gas assets. Feels they are hoping for higher valuations for each part by having pure plays. Both of those individual companies become takeover targets.

Nestles. When looking at foreign stocks, you have to take into account what will occur with Cdn$ and have to be very careful. This is a low growth, solid world-class company but he would prefer US companies like General Mills (GIS-N) or Proctor & Gamble (PG-N) that have been much more aggressive at cutting costs and raising prices in the last year.
