CN-T or CP-T? He owns CN and CSX in the U.S. He likes CN for its north-south traffic to the States--it's safer. CP is east-west (more Canadian). CN will benefit from shipping out Alberta oil to California. It costs $12 per barrel to ship it, but the low WCS cost makes it still worth it.

BAC vs. PRUDENTIAL If both benefit from wider rates, the spreads will widen for U.S. banks, which have been
pulling back. BAC has A 10% market share in the U.S. which is as big as the entire Canadian banking system. BAC has lot of exposure to the plain mortgage side where spreads should expand. Be patient and you'll see earnings and dividends. U.S. lifecos should benefit, too, but so will Canadian ones like MFC-T (which is a good entry point now). He prefers American banks over their lifecos.

They reported a good number lately, but failed to go private. It's too energy-centric for him. It's fully valued now after failing to go private.

Sold it 7 years ago. He's not a silver/gold fan, so he won't rebuy it. It could recover partially from its decline. But he's not up on Guatemala now where Tahoe has a flagship silver mine that's currently shut down. There is lots of value here, if they can get it going. This is probably dead money.

(Past Top Pick Oct. 20. 2017, Down 16%) There is growth coming. He'll stick with it. The lack of pipelines has pulled them back and down like all else in October. Historic valuation is good. Dividend yield is 5.6%. If it rebounds to the high-$50s, plus that dividend, you will do fine.

(Past Top Pick Oct. 20. 2017, Up 16%) ESPN numbers have stopped falling; they're doing their own streaming with 1 million subscribers already in the first five months. It's cannibalizing the cable which was going to go anyway. They own Hulu, also good. Theme parks are fine. It's relatively cheap. He targets $125.
