The stock has been sideways. They're rebranding to Circle K, the U.S. branding, here in Canada and eventually in Europe. The stock hasn't done anything wrong, but it's a consumer stock lumped into the consumer sector, which is struggling. He's worried about their next report--they may be squeezed on margins due to rising oil, but overall he likes this stock for the long term.

The parent, Enbridge, will take this in. Since that news, the Fund has lifted and is trading in line with ENB. He thinks the pipelines are a good place to be now. He sees good growth here and you're being paid a decent dividend.

It's a small-cap Couche-Tard based in the west. They picked up a refinery, which now looks smart, because oil prices have since risen. That said, he prefers Couche-Tard.

This is a growth story, not a defensive staple one (a struggling sector lately). But his concern about DOL it that it's trading at 28x earnings, so it's expensive. So, at the next misstep that happens to them, like an earnings miss, this stock will drop. It's well-managed and they haven't seriously missed an earnings in the past, though. It's come off its highs, getting way, way expensive and now only slightly expensive.

One of the heavy oil producers. They made an acqusition of Aurora at the wrong time, so they got stuck with bad oil prices and wound up with a rocky balance sheet. The oil differentials have recently narrowed in their favour, but analysts expect them to expand back over the summer. The balance sheet has improved.

His entry point was $100. Industrials are a way to play mid-America, like grain and cars. There's only a modest upside now of 5% plus dividend at today's $109 share price.

He held it for years and sold it at $53, because it was getting expensive. Also, there was nothing left to do in the Canadian cinema industry after acquiring Famous Players, etc. They have a smart CEO. The Recroom and their new golfing game are good moves. But these new operations need time to raise the share price. By 2020, they want cinemas to occupy only 60% of their operations. It's still trades at a higher multiple than American counterparts.
