(A Top Pick Feb 14/17. Up 6%.) He bought this because it was going through this reorganization. They are putting the 2 companies together and then they are going to break them up into 3 pieces. With relatively low feed-cost stocks and an improving economy, the opportunity to grow is there.

Having doubled my money, do I buy more or diversify into something else? A theme that has worked in this market for a long time is dividend growth. This company has been a poster child for years and years. He is not a huge fan of the telcos, because it falls into the camp of the bond proxy like sectors. Within the sector, this has a very high exposure to wireless, and technically the stock looks very, very good. It has just broken old of a 2-year base, and consolidated the breakout, so next year looks quite good.

This is at the centre of a number of really important long-term themes, machine learning, augmented reality, automated driving and Bitcoin. This is a stock that does correct. Semiconductors as a whole have pulled back over the last 2 weeks. Believes this is just a bit of year-end positioning. Feels the long-term trend in the stock is intact. This is trading at $187, and would take a break of $160 for him to get concerned.

We are in a market where things that have been working have changed over the last couple of years. When that happens, institutions look at their investment managers to see if they’ve been keeping up or not. Because markets have been going through structural changes and institutions have been going through reallocations, there are lots of searches going on for managers. This company is right in the heart of that business and participates. It has been a pretty good performer and he would have no trouble owning the stock.

This is right in the heart of e-commerce alongside of Amazon (AMZN-Q). It really is a juggernaut, growing at a tremendous rate. The most recent quarter revenues were up 63% and earnings were up 65%. The Internet stocks have had a tremendous year, especially Internet retail as a whole. It’s one you could have a little piece of to participate in the very important structural theme, which is not slowing down at all.

This has been a great holding. Canada is unique in that we have a bunch of companies built in a structure to pay investors a regular cash flow stream, but at the same time tied to the global economy. This company gets a royalty stream on every pound of iron ore produced by Rio Tinto.

There are some structural challenges in wire line telecoms, which historically get tied to interest rates. We have seen the secular long-term low in interest rates in June 2016, and we are unlikely to revisit them. Expect that rates move higher from here. This is not the #1 company he would choose in the group. Prefers Telus (T-T).
