(A Top Pick Feb 3/17. Up 94%.) Took his positions out at around $122 when he felt it was becoming a target by activists. It has yet to make any earnings. If it sold back under $100, he would have another hard look at it.

(A Top Pick Feb 3/17. Down 1%.) The whole sector is suffering from the view that somehow energy is going to disappear in the next couple of years, which he doesn't believe at all. The dividend seems to be relatively safe. Has added to his positions.

Watching this with interest. Sold his holdings not too long ago, as it seemed to be drifting down. The Fox acquisition may change the equation. It did very well for him until it started going sideways in the last year or so. The jury is out and we are going to have to wait and see. Thinks they are going to be head to head with Netflix as soon as the dust settles.

Has held this in the past and did very well with it, but wants to be a little more convinced metal prices are really on a discernible uptrend. With the world economic numbers looking better, that is a distinct possibility. Presently it is a bit pricey. To him, it is still in the risk areas that is outside of what he could readily accept.

Why is there such a disconnect between the flat earnings trend in the last 4 years, the high rising debt levels, and that they have an extremely generous dividend policy? A lot of people are asking the same question. This one is not on his "favourites" list at all. The political situation for this company and TransCanada (TRP-T) is that the politics of the world have become very negative for large pipelines. He thought this company's Northern Gateway was doomed from the start. They are not paying enough attention to the political aspects and the political environment. He would not recommend this.

He’s always very cautious with fallen angels. It almost takes a miracle to bring them back to life. The company has a huge debt. They still have some assets that are worthwhile, but are trying to work their way out of a very difficult situation. A long, hard road ahead before this company gets out of the woods.

Very dubious about the whole marijuana sector. It's an area where you can sort of put your sign up saying we are now in the marijuana business, and away you go. There are some big legitimate companies that are going to do well, but we really don't know exactly how well they are going to do. He is not sure they will be very profitable.
