He sold in 2013/14 because cross selling did not work.  They were going to increase returns to shareholders and that did not materialize.  As a British bank they are in a better position than a European bank.  But he does not want to be a British bank because the American markets have access to your capital.  He thinks the outperformance of non-Canadian banks is probably over.

He does not recommend it.  It is an excellent company but he is concerned about the demand for construction equipment.  Commodity prices have come off high boil.  We are a long way from a decade long run like the 2000s.

He does not anticipating anything in particular to happen with earnings.  They have guided toward higher operating expenditures.  Normally they don't spend as much as they guide to.  He got out because of declining engagement on their platforms.  Core growth is from Instagram.  He prefers AMZN-Q because they get a lot of advertizing dollars.  He prefers it over GOOGL-Q also.
