The problem is that it's the beneficiary of a tariff wall against American sugar. This is too scary if you rely on income for your portfolio. Buy Crombie REIT or Fortis or a telco, instead, because their dividends are more reliable and safer.

A huge success story. A high-quality, expensive product, but a fashion one. In fashion, this year's star can be next year's dud. Compare to Lululemon which is very volatile. CG is very expensive now. A great company is not necessarily a great stock. He hopes they succeed, though.

Pays a good dividend, which is the only reason to buy it. Telcos are in a neverending buying cycle, while investors buy them for yield. It's tough for them to grow. In a registered plan, it's better to buy a Canadian telco than AT&T, given the tax advantage.

Has owned this for over 10 years. Subject to volatility due to the price of its raw material that they can't control. Dairy is a low-growth market. China's growth has been slower than hoped. He feels so-so about Saputo. Likes the management, but not the raw material. Food stocks never go out of fashion, so a good diversifyer in a portfolio, but it won't create fireworks for an investor.

He likes it with 50 plants across North America, including Mexico. If NAFTA goes down, then Magna goes down. Trading at a low multple, but missed its earnings target in the last quarter. They are ready for the e-car revolution. He has a lot of faith in Magna.
