(A Top Pick Feb 26/16. Up 31.15%.) This has been a very good year for Canadian stocks. Do not expect those kinds of returns every year. A very good product.

(A Top Pick Feb 26/16. Up 16.3%.) It has been a good year for gold. It’s sold off a lot in the past 4-5 months, but still a really good thing to have in your portfolio. You should use this judiciously, 3%-5% of your portfolio.

You will see both Prime Minister Trudeau and President elect Trump talking a lot about infrastructure. There is a very obvious crying need for this. It may not shoot the lights out, but a very safe way of getting equity exposure in infrastructure. A good, long term play.

Factor products that iShares are putting out are doing well. Factor investing has done quite well in 2016. The slight problem might be that Europe had a less good year, relative to Canada. He likes the product.
