It bounced a little today with its plan to spin off health care and oil. His model price for GE is $12.81 and the stock closed yesterday at $12.75. He expects the S&P to issue a negative review on GE’s debt as GE’s balance sheet changes. He would not buy here. He wants the balance sheet to shrink much more before considering it.

Model price is $83.03. The stock is at $70.50 today. CVS bottomed out. He expects the high to be about $87. However, any time Amazon can announce again that it is going into the pharma business, CVS will drop. Its downside risk is about $63.60 and he would buy at that price. (Analysts’ price target is $50.41)

He likes it and it has moved a little lately. They've settled a few lawsuits and are putting their problems behind. Highway 407 has been a fantastic asset for them. SNC has touched $60 for the first time in a while and he sees 10-15% upside in the next 12 months. Be patient. Over the next few weeks you could buy this for a dollar or two lower.

(A Top Pick August 4, 2017. Down 4%). This rose to $80 in January and is down to 65.52 now. It is struggling at EBB-2, well below his model price ($73.97). The US stress tests will come out this week. He expects dividend increases, which is essential for this stock to move higher. The company pays only about 20% of its profits, compared to 40% at Royal Bank. So he expects a pop soon. However, he thinks that what is happening in Europe will affect American bank stock prices. The European banks are at multi-year lows. However, the large American banks are very well capitalized and in much better shape than the Europeans.
