Developing a revolutionary cholesterol/glycerids treatment (CaPre). Had to finance to raise money for a phase 3 trial. A table pounding buy. Stock has been beaten up on short-term concerns. Looking for this to double or triple in the next year.

You have to have an outlook on what you think silver is going to do. This is precious metals, primarily gold and silver. Thinks gold and silver are going lower before they go higher. Doesn’t have the CapX requirements that mining companies do, so if you want to invest in these commodities, this is a better company to do it in as it is more defensive. He would stay away from the sector.

A couple of years ago this was pretty challenged with some balance sheet concerns. They turned things around. Good company. Had a huge move so he is a little bit cautious on it. Prefers the Enterprise Group (E-T).

Out of all the Canadian banks, this would be his Top Pick. From a long-term perspective, they have outperformed all their competitors. Really well-run bank. Moderately bullish on banks, but you buy them when they have pullbacks. This one is trading near a 52-week high. He sees better opportunities elsewhere.

Railways are a really good sector to invest in. Have unique assets that are very tough to replicate. His favourite in the sector is Norfolk Southern (NSC-N). Most of them are trading at 52-week highs.

Really well-run business. Went through a few problems in the financial crisis, but now have a really good assortment of really good industrial businesses. Good long-term stock. If you don’t own, wait for a bit of a correction.
