Not the highest quality REIT, but he does like it here. 8% dividend yield and it is trading at a very reasonable valuation, 10.7X 2016. Payout ratio is at about 87%, and he sees that declining next year. 32% of its revenue stream is from the US. His problem is that it doesn’t have any growth rate over the next couple of years, due to the areas they are in.

The company warned of a miss in results, but held up their guidance for 2016. The car companies are at exceptionally low multiples. This is a good company. Dividend yield of 4.7%.

Just announced they are going to be selling their propane business, which is 13% of their business mix. They want to focus more on infrastructure. This is probably the most commodity focused of the energy infrastructure, so it has been very volatile. From a very low base, he is modelling that their cash flow can grow 25% between 2015 and 2017. Very good balance sheet relative to other energy infrastructure names. Not a bad little play down here all things considered. It’s one you could consider selling Puts on.

This is the worst of the 5 big banks at this point. They just made a US acquisition and paid 17X, and it trades at around 11X. It is likely going to be dilutive. They are going to go from the best balance sheet, highest CET1 to the worst as a result, with no earnings per share growth for the next little bit. The stock is OK, but you can get a much better growth rate and a very similar valuation with one of the other banks. He would go Royal (RY-T) or Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS-T). (See Top Picks.)

(Market Call Minute.) This has 95% occupancy or better. Very sustainable yield. Long dated leases.

(Market Call Minute.) This has had a pretty big run, but you have pretty good sustainable cash flow.

(Market Call Minute.) This is interesting. Higher risk with about 100% payout ratio, but all in he thinks that business does improve, and you can own this if you don’t mind taking a bit of risk.
