Industrial commodities, which are linked to growth in EM and China, which is slowing down. So that's why copper prices are plumbing lows, and gold is lukewarm. Until global production has bottomed or is accelerating, he'd be wary of buying a deep cyclical like this one.

TRP vs. IPL. He'd go with IPL. The yield is higher. TRP probably has the prospect of a couple of dividend hikes in the next year or two. Whereas hikes at IPL will probably be on hold because of capital expenditures. Quality of IPL assets is unassailable, and the new plant will be meaningfully accretive to their operating earnings when it comes online in 2021. Rebranding is to appeal to its global shareholder base.

Has been a core holding for many years. Confidence is as strong as ever with the recent reset in the valuations. Canada's third largest bank. Most globally ambitious, with established footprint in Mexico and South America. Have been making acquisitions. Internal efficiency levers to pull. Earnings grow about 7% compounded over last 5 years. Should continue to outperform the TSX, which it's done for last 17/25 years. Yield is 4.8%. (Analysts’ price target is $82.00)

Acquirer and manager of assets of all stripes. Competitive advantage is their size and scale. Large reach means they have deep operating expertise. Going to be using about 40B of free cash flow to buy back shares which will drive shareholder value. Good, long-term secular hold. Yield is 1.5%. (Analysts’ price target is $67.66)

Oil was a dirty word last year, and Parex got immersed in controversy. Mid-size rapidly growing producer of oil. Owns some of highest netbacks, which are operating margins, of any Canadian oil producer. Tripled production since 2013, but quintupled EPS, which is unique in the resource space. Compelling buying opportunity right here, right now. No dividend. (Analysts’ price target is $29.11)
