TOP PICK

(Canada is cheap from a cyclical basis, so his 3 Top Picks are ones that fit that theme and are cheap with good price momentum.) An oil stock that you can hold and that will survive. Best in class in terms of adding resources. Growing their reserves even in this environment. Trading at 3.3X cash flow and 1.3X BV, and most importantly have no debt. Have cash on their balance sheet and a $200 million line of credit, so have room to grow if oil prices move higher. At around $40 Brent they can actually grow. Trade on a flowing barrel of around 37,000, versus its peers at around 60,000.

There has been no establishment of a support level yet. Technically it is clearly in a downward trend and trading less then its 20 day moving average as well is underperforming the market. There is no indication that this has stopped going down. There are no signs of support.

Historically US banks bottom right around this time of year. What you want now are the technicals to support that. There are some early signs that this might want to be bottom at around current levels. Has been slightly outperforming the market, which has been going down. Probably slightly higher than its 20 day moving average, and momentum indicators are probably starting to show early signs of bottoming. Probably a good time to be considering this as an interesting seasonal play right through until approximately May.

Normally forest product stocks do very well from the middle of October right through until April of each year. Recently came back to its low of October. Technically it has come back to support which is a good sign. A bounce from these levels implies that you are going to get a test of the previous high, and if you got a breakout above that level, that would be very, very bullish. There is still some time for the seasonal trade. Probably a good Hold at these levels if not a good Buy for a trade into April.

Historically US banks start to show positive performance around this time of year, and move higher right through until approximately the beginning of May. Seasonality is clicking in, but technically the stock is in a downward trend and has yet to show signs of even trying to form a bottom. Has been underperforming the market and is trading below its 20 day moving average. Short-term momentum indicators are negative. Not a good one to buy. Wait until there are signs of it bottoming.
