It's very cyclical. It has consolidated the space as leader, so there's less competition now. This cycle is not over, but it's trading below its 50-day moving average. If you're a value investor, you could buy it now, but the technicals don't impress him.

(Past Top Pick, August 16, 2017, Up 38%) Sold at a good profit. It's well-run. He likes this space, online trading. Expects trading volumes online to increase. This space has consolidated in the past few months. It could be taken out by someone like a Schwab.

Even with the telcos bouncing up in the summer, BCE did not. Little growth here. People buy this for the dividend. He wouldn't buy any telco now, and BCE is among the weaker ones.

An important Chinese company. Only 16% of Chinese stocks have an upward bias now. He closely watches Chinese stocks. Alibaba has held on longer than most in China, but it eventually broke support at $170. He needs the Chinese market and Alibaba to recover (to $170) before he steps back in. We're in a time when he'd favour US stocks over Chinese given trade tensions.

Do you see TD hitting $87 in Q4? He'd rather buy a US bank or at least a Canadian one with US exposure--TD and BMO. Both have excellent loan growth in the U.S. You're paid a good yield by TD and it's trading better than most of the S&P 500.

The drug stocks are defensive. Consumer discretionary has been doing well. CVS had 19% earnings growth, and estimated 4% next year, which is not enough in a bull market to take advantage of economic strength. You could see money rotate away from this sector.

Aerospace and defence have long contracts, so that's attractive. Also, you don't pay for the future as you do with pharma, because these companies keep their projects in development in secret; then they just unveil them. He likes Boeing for its civil aviation and defence sides. He prefers this over Lockheed.
