Defence is expensive. This ETF is aerospace and defence. If you want to be more precise, Raytheon (RTN-N) is a good way, which is focused on cyber defence, missile defence, has the most international sales exposure. He likes the theme of defence spending. You take out some of the idiosyncratic risks by buying this one.

There is a long road for new management. A lot to do and very significant fundamental risks. There are a number of well-flagged horrendously long list of knocks against the company right now. It has recently had a nice upswing, so if you own it, lock it in and walk away.

He likes this because it is a domestically focused franchise, good at what they do, and great capital levels. Regulations are taking a softer tone now which helps. Where you have to be cautious on this is the yield curve. Right now, if you look at the spread between the 10 year and the 3-month Treasury yields, it gives you a reasonable proxy for a net interest margin improvement or shrinkage, and this is ultimately going to be a little tough for this company. However, he doesn’t see a lot else to worry about.

This had a good earnings beat and the stock did extremely well. He would suggest there is a little froth in it at the moment, but doesn’t think it is terribly valued. Any time anything has really shot up like this, it has to consolidate. If the earnings can catch up a little, with the valuation, it is probably approaching 20X PE. Good growth and good company, but is a little ahead of itself. He would give it a little room to consolidate.

US growth is moderate, just not putting up accelerating growth. This is a kind of environment where steady state utilities can do really well for you. Rates don’t seem to be shooting up anytime soon as inflation is just not there.

The growth profile is fantastic. It has 10% better margins than MasterCard (MC-N). They just put in Europe, so they have a whole bunch of synergies to find there. Dividend yield of 0.6%. (Analysts’ price target is $112.)

The iPhone 10 is quite expensive. Carriers in the US and the UK will no longer subsidize the phones, and it is going to be a really hard sell to spend that kind of money. It doesn’t really address the issue of what is happening in China. They’ve been losing unit volume share there. In China, it is a substantial amount of money to pay for even the revamped iPhone 8, let alone the iPhone 10.
