(A Top Pick May 1/17 - Up 23%.) The largest private equity company in the world. Has a great dividend yield. A great story. They are not a corporation therefore not on the S&P 500. With the tax changes there is a rumor that they will become a corporation and be part of the index and would get a bump. Outside of that, these guys have been very astute.

They own Royal Bank (RY-T) and TD (TD-T). They changed the CEO recently. It has done a good job in the last while. The problem with Canadian Banks is the they are not as cheap as the US banks. The good thing is that they continue to grow their dividends and are very well capitalized. Owning here it is fine. Great ROE.
