A good time to get into retail? Retail has been a tough spot. A global brand and one that has certainly performed well. Nike has been a beneficiary of the trend in athletic leisure space. He would pay closer attention to Under Armor (UA-N) which has been the laggard. Nike is a good brand around for ages and has generated good returns for shareholders historically.

They own it and like it very much. Leader in railway ties and utility poles, not the most exciting businesses but very profitable. They are expanding in other verticals such as residential lumbers in the U.S. in particular. 6% free cash flow yields on 2018 numbers. Management has a great track record. Opportunities for growth across different segments. Directors are big shareholders and own 40% of the business still. They have cash flow to increase dividend, but thinks they should be spending their money to allocate capital to best return opportunities for shareholder over the long term.

It’s a business he really likes. One of their favorites in the FAANG stocks. They’ve been very consistent growers and you’re still not paying up considerably to own that growth. They have a lot of different growth drivers. They are a leader in artificial intelligence. He likes their handset business which he thinks hasn’t had much attention and thinks it could eat some of Apple’s share. (Analysts’ price target $1178.)

Really appreciate the way they go about their business. They own great returns and have been great capital allocators. They typically find great opportunities when they find distressed sellers or unique assets to buy. Sold out their holding in the last month or so given the valuation they’ve seen. As had a great run and doubled in the last number of years. (Analysts’ price target $46.64.)

Great company obviously. Given where we are in the iPhone cycle, thinks now it’s time to take some profit and look for a better entry point in 2018 or beyond. From here, it’s hard to see what will backfill that growth in 2018. Thinks it’s better to take some profits now. Sees better opportunities in the supply chain and in names like Broadcom (AVGO-Q).

Doesn’t own. Owns Canadian Natural Resources (CNQ-T). The two are comparable, two bellwethers in Canada. Suncor is more into refining with production assets that are a little bit higher quality. They’ve been with CNQ-T historically and continues to hold.
