He recently bought this. This was an undervalued company and heavily levered. They recently merged with Raging River, making it worth investing in now. It was beaten up along with other oil stocks, but he likes the story of this stock
now.

Canada's go-to mining stock and a relatively stable one. It has survived a rough period of acqusition/heavy leverage/stock sell-off. Market sentiment towards mining overall remains weak (and he prefers the oil sector), so he holds little mining.

The U.S. market is outperforming Canada, so he prefers financials there than here. MS had a recent pullback, but feels it will do well going forward. The U.S. financials will move in a pack. You should get a decent return in MS in the next 12 months.

(Past Top Pick, November 16, 2017, Up 30%) It slowly grew as it increased its earnings. The market once considered this yesterday's tech company. This will likely outgrow Amazon Web Services. It's starting to get expensive, but this half-trillion company is actually accelerating growth.

More of a wireless than a telco company. Growth has really slowed down in this sector, yet cell phones remain an essential business. He likes Verizon and it's a little pricey now, but good long-term. Pays a nice dividend.

He used to own it and finds it interesting now. It's had a big pullback. It's a little levered, but it enjoys an oligopoly in Canada. Don't expect the rate of growth in the past, but it's worth looking at now.

Avoid it. Franchisees fighting with the company is not a good sign. Horton's has been a great brand, but after the QSR takeover, QSR has cut corners too much and franchisees are now pushing back. Also, the U.S. expansion didn't work.
