This stock has been tough. Down 83% in the last 12 months, and hit a brand-new all-time low today at $8.62. From his perspective there is no earnings. It is difficult for him to understand the product. Feels it is a bit of a niche product.

Used to own this. As an insurer, it will do a bit better with rising interest rates, but on a technical basis, it is below the 200 day moving average, and that continues to fall. Be careful of this one. Pretty cheap at 8X forward earnings probably a 9%-10% growth rate, but until it changes in terms of its technicals, he is not going to own it. Nice dividend of 3.6%.

(A Top Pick May 21/15. Up 27.36%.) Sold his holdings at the $92 level last month, because it was heading back to its highs, and he thought it was a bit of a double top. He is going to wait and see if it comes down into the low $80s before he picks it back up again. A bit expensive at 25X forward earnings and a 17% growth rate.

(A Top Pick May 21/15. Down 10.89%.) Got stopped out last August around this price level. Very cheap at 5X forward earnings with a 9% growth rate and a dividend at 5%. However, it has not done very well. Expects the market is concerned about the auto market maturing. Also there is very anaemic looking growth globally.

(A Top Pick May 21/15. Up 14.1%.) One of his favourite airlines. If the US$ starts to appreciate, this is a name that is going to start becoming important again. You want a name that is mostly domestic or US$ centric in terms of revenues. This has the best balance sheet out there. Very low debt to capital ratio.

A basket of midstream and infrastructure energy names. Pays about a 9% dividend yield. Has gotten beaten up quite dramatically, but has started to recover from its February lows. If you think the energy sector is recovering and stabilizing, this might be a good name to hold for income and capital appreciation.

BMO S&P/TSX Laddered Preferred (ZPR-T) or iShares S&P/TSX preferred (CPD-T)? The only difference between these 2 is that this one probably has a little bit more in rate reset preferred shares. Those are the shares that will do well when interest rates start to move higher. The both are very similar though. There is going to be some volatility in the preferred share market.
