Better to buy an American airline because the U.S. currency may outweigh the cyclicality of airlines? Cyclicality is the biggest concern in airlines. They've executed their strategy well, trimming costs and bought back their loyalty program. Their valuation isn't bad. There's upside in the loyalty program. AC isn't bad in this space, but be cautious being in airlines at this point in the cycle.

Exposed to western Canadian oil and South American copper. He's more optimistic about the oil sector than copper; he expects the oil price will recover. But getting Canadian oil into US markets will remain a long-term issue without an instant fix. FTT is good name to own with good managers. Don't see a lot of upside short-term though.

Pays a good dividend which is safe unless oil plunges to $40, but he expects it to reach the mid-$50's to mid-$60's. They diversified their production into Europe and Australia which has helped their bottom line. A good move.

Despite good numbers, the stock price hasn't risen much. He also doesn't understand why it hasn't gone up more. They've done well with Asian growth. Part of the drag comes from their long-term care business in the U.S.; they've reduced their exposire there. But what needs to happen is for MFC to show a couple of solid straight quarters to boost investor confidence.

Frustrating to own. It looks cheap on paper, with solid assets and good managers. But in the past they overspent on acqusitions without generating enough returns. They've really cut back on that approach. Now, they need to sell some assets. If oil stays in the low-$50s/60s, this has enormous upside and the dividend will gradually increase. If oil reaches $65, CPG could easily double.

Pays a good dividend. Their underlying business insurance and investments, which have been under pressure, though good long-term. Stable long-term stock, but there will be short-term challenges. Averaging down isn't a bad idea.

The US regionals are driven by the US economy which has been on a decent pace. But it'll slow down this year and maybe the next. They're doing fine, chugging along, with no credit issues. He's lukewarm about KRE. It's sold off lately. Hold onto it and don't get aggressive now. Commercial lending is cyclically sensitive, which is his concern.
