It is a microcosm of the S&P 500. It has had a tendency of peaking out at 5.5 times its book value. It usually sinks back 15-20% of its trading value when it hits here. He expected this but this time it did not happen. AAPL-Q has been trying to push higher but every time it gets there it gets pushed down. One thing that is interesting is that if you look at the slope of the growth of AAPL-Q, It was growing aggressively until 2012 and then they started to buy back shares and the growth of the company slowed considerably. Most interesting is that the rate of earnings growth has also slowed down as it has for many other similar companies that have bought back stock. This move to buy back stock is damaging to shareholders. If the company is not reinvesting, the growth slows. They wasted shareholders' money with these buybacks. The ceiling is $161 right now. The book value will go down. If we ever get into a market correction then this stock will have a good one.

You are about to lose your holding because they are buying it back. It is not close to fair market value. Institutional shareholders may fight back, but it is largely held by individuals. He cannot offer much help. He is hoping something good will happen.

(A Top Pick Sep. 1/17, Down 6%) It had a nice yield but lost some altitude. Mall REITs have been doing this because of the AMZN-Q tsunami of the retail industry. They are mostly in Quebec now and it is the strongest province we have right now. CUF.UN-T is trading at a nice discount to book value. He is staying with it.

(A Top Pick Sep. 1/17, Down 31%) The golds have not done particularly well. Golds are a hedge against central bank lunacy which we have had a lot of. The tax cut the Americans have been given will have unknown affects on the US.
