Safe-ish. He models 5% EPS growth. 75% payout ratio. Fairly attractively valued. Defensive story. Other names are more attractive with better valuations (some even half like Power Financial) with similar growth rates.

It depends on the price of crude. Good balance sheet. Decent growth profile. With oil at $53 this is a good pick. 2/3 of their exposure is international. All in a good bet if you are constructive on oil.

Had a very good quarter. They are uniquely positioned. He models 13% growth. Not the cheapest name. For fresh capital he would consider this stock.

Exceptionally cheap name. With a yield at 6.3% and a payout ratio of 45%. It has been a miserable performer. He doesn't see earnings falling unless there is a recession and he doesn't see that coming.

In a market like this you wait until people come out of their foxholes. Super cheap at 5 1/2 PE. Nice dividend of 4% plus. Fair name. You can worry about peak sales but it is priced for that.

(A Top Pick Jan 25/18, Down 9%) Banks in general had a rough year. Q4 was very strong for them. Trades at a discount compared to the group. He thinks it is going to grow at 8% annually. Still like it.
