STRONG BUY

One of his biggest positions and a past pick. It's in the tech sector that grows at least 30% a year. They're not in the U.S. that much, but big across southeast Asia and even in Russia. This has lots of legs and opportunity.

PAST TOP PICK

(Past Top Pick, August 24, 2017, Down 25%) He's stayed in this and even added more. He misjudged the turn in European banking, then DB bank fired its CEO. It will do well when the European banks do well, which happens when interest rates will stop being negative, normalize and break-out. Stay the course.

PAST TOP PICK

(Past Top Pick, August 24, 2017, Up 39%) A demographic play even though U.S. starts are slower than expected. But they should pick up. He expects Millennials to use Home Depot in the coming decade as they buy homes.

COMMENT

He owns it personally. The WGL acqusition has been approved. High yield of 10%, but it carries a lot of debt on the acqusition side, so he didn't buy it for his client portfolios. This will probably move up from the current $28.

BUY

BAC vs Citibank: He feels BAC will go much higher. He likes it for its Merill Lynch investment banking and portfolio management side. There's nothing wrong with Citibank and it too will do better. He would add to his BAC position. He think U.S. banks in general will have another run.

SELL ON STRENGTH

He's disappointed because it's stalled out, because all Canadian financials have, including the banks which haven't reached new highs since January. But he thinks they will all do better. Hold for now and sell on the highs in the next rally.
