His favourite Canadian oil producer, but he sold all his oil producers six months ago, because Canadians can't get world prices for oil. He bought U.S. producers instead, because they get that world price. Canadians have failed to
build pipelines. There will come a time when we will have pipelines, but that time looks far off.

Great bank, though he owns more of TD, because of its U.S. exposure. RY is extremely well-managed. You can't go wrong owning it. But if RY is too big a part of your portfolio, sell some of it and buy a U.S. bank like JPM. Note: Canadian dividends pay better dividends and benefit from Canada's dividend tax credit, whereas you're taxed more on U.S. banks. He sees more upside with American banks, but check with your accountant and advisor about the taxes first. Otherwise, but another Canadian bank.
