This has actually underperformed the S&P 500 over the last 3 years. Year-to-date however, the shares have outperformed and are about 6% better than the S&P. In the last few years, in a growth environment, this has underperformed. On a go forward basis, it might make a lot of sense. It really depends on whether we are truly going back into a Value-based environment versus a growth environment.

He likes the chart on this. Ever since the January lows, it has finally broken out and has started moving higher. Trading above the 50 and 200 day moving averages, so from a technical perspective, there are no complaints. On valuations it is trading at 17X earnings with a 6% or 7% growth rate, which makes it a little expensive. Nice dividend at 2.8%, and they are probably going to grow that over time. Likes their diversification within the drug space, medical device space and the consumer product space. One name that might be a little cheaper and that he likes a little more, would be AbbVie (ABBV-N). However, if you own this, there is no reason to Sell until it breaks down a bit.

Currently looking at exiting this. He has done very well with it, and has traded in and out of it a couple of times over the last couple of years. His concern is that the stock price has started to flatten out back into the November-December phase. It got to the $32-$33 level and really hasn’t broken above that. In March it got back to the $32 and then started to break down again. If there is a bit of a breakdown in the market, this is a bit of a barometer and the stock is going to break down too. Dividend of around 3%.

Likes this and thinks it makes a lot of sense. The midstream names are a bit of a conservative way to play into the energy recovery if you think that is happening. He prefers something like Pembina Pipeline (PPL-T), which has a bit of a pickup in dividend and pays closer to 5%. Likes both names.

Largest Internet Company globally, specializing in search and advertising. They control 74% of the US Internet search engine market, and nearly 60% of the global search ad revenue. With the YouTube volume growth, increasing mobile ad sales and more cost controls, that should continue to drive the bottom and top lines. Trading pretty cheap at 20X forward earnings. 15% long-term growth rate, gives it a 1.3X PEG, which is pretty good for a large cap technology brand. Added to his position last month in the $705 area. Thinks it can get back up to the $800 level quite easily.

If you are a believer that the energy market is continuing to stabilize and recover, he likes this company because it is a very conservative play. The largest integrated oil company globally. Feels they are very committed long term to cost control and a strong balance sheet, enabling them to make some very opportunistic acquisitions going forward. Trading at 2.15X Price to BV, which is a discount to its 10-year average of 2.8X. Dividend yield of 3.33%.

A very classical, traditional, consumers staple stock that provides investors with a very stable and predictable growth and earnings with a modest but growing dividend. They have $12 billion in sales and a network of 600 stores in Québec and Ontario. Trading at 17X earnings and a 10% growth rate and a dividend yield of 1.3%. The dividend has grown at 16% per year over the last 5 years. A very steady type of name, especially for this environment where things seem to be expensive.
