This is a stock that made investors a ton of money in the 90s, but hasn’t made any money since. The problem is that they had to keep cutting prices, and that doesn’t seem to be getting any better. It looks like their revenue line keeps getting smaller. Dividend yield of 4.6%.

A little too complicated a stock. It has a lot of moving parts. Also, any company that had to turn to the government for help in 2008, scares him. They let themselves get levered too high, so he doesn’t trust the risk controls. He would prefer something like Manulife (MFC-T) which has a better and steadier free cash flow yield and also pays a nice dividend.

This is a stock he likes a lot because management is so good. Every time there is trouble, this company finds a way to take market share away from their competitors. Keep in mind that this is about 75% agricultural, so they are going to rise and fall with the farmers of the world. Feels agriculture is a good place to invest in, because people are always going to have to eat.

A good defence stock? He would caution on rushing in to buy an industry just because a political party says they are going to increase defence spending. Generally speaking, it seems to be a disconnect between what they say and what they actually do. However, defence stocks are not terribly expensive if you look at the free cash flow yield. Lockheed Martin (LMT-N) is his favourite because it is the most profitable and diversified. He has looked at Boeing (BA-N) which is very profitable. Lockheed Martin would be his 1st choice, and Boeing would be 2nd.

A big fan. The healthcare sector is cheap. This one has a tremendous free cash flow yield. They pretty much have the market all to themselves, and he likes markets where there aren’t very many competitors. (See Top Picks.)

He likes free cash flow yields in his holdings. The market is about 4.5%, and if he can get 6%, he is not interested in the stock. This one doesn’t hit the bar for him, and thinks there are more profitable companies out there. Not a bad stock, but just not one for him.
