This is in the “Internet of things” space, and make modules that allow cars, refrigerators, etc. to connect to the Internet. This is in the growth space which is becoming crowded. A well-run business, and has had quite a run. Could be a potential takeover candidate at some point.

Had owned this in the past and probably should still own it. Very well-run with a “Best in class” management. A very good, diversified company.

Doesn’t own any banks, but if he had to own a bank, it would be this one. It is the most retail focused and maybe steadiest of the banks. He doesn’t think the allegations are a cause for concern that would trigger more downside.

This is probably a good entry point in buying the subscription receipts. They are in the process of trying to acquire Washington Gas and Light, a large US utility. Did a large financing, issuing subscription receipts, which turn into the stock if they close on the acquisition. They are actually trading at a discount, so a pretty reasonable way of entering the stock.

Airlines are not exactly bastions of free cash flow. They are going to be challenged for the next while, having such a large base in Western Canada. Unless oil comes roaring back, they are going to be challenged for growth and, as a result, will have to move further and further into direct competition with Air Canada (AC-T), which usually never works out well for airlines. There are better names to own.

He is Short this and Long on a copper producer. Doesn’t have anything against the company, it is more about the coal space. Metallurgical coal is a commodity that has had its run. Feels that the expected free cash to be generated through 2017, are probably misguided. We are starting to see a lot of coal capacity come into the market after the run-up in prices last year.

This has been a good stock. They are money makers, but it is not exactly a big growth space. The absolute number of gas stations is shrinking both in Canada and the US. After their most recent acquisition, this company will not be able to grow in Canada any more. It will probably turn into more of an income vehicle at this stage.
