BAC vs. Wells Fargo Both are well-run, with BAC trading at a slightly lower multiple, so he favours BAC. Also, Wells has a scandal to still deal with it and management issues, which is why he's stayed away from it. A rising yield curve boosts all the US banks, so that's's now a headwind as rate increases slow down. Both benefit from a strong US economy.

Good for dividends in the next 5 years? A good company. He just bough back into this. It's a play on North American housing. They also have a European business. There are concerns about US housing slowing, though. They pay a good, adjustable dividend based on business performance, which has decreased recently, but is still around 4%. They're good capital allocators and are buying back a lot of shares which shows self-confidence.

(A Top Pick Apr 24/18, Down 21%) Recent earnings have been reasonably strong, but he sold earlier at $11.50 to cut his losses and risk. There's a lot of new capacity in the containerboard industry coming, and there are worries about weakening pricing going with worries over the economy. That's why this stock has been under pressure. Demand for boxes moves up and down with the economy. A cyclical.

(A Top Pick Apr 24/18, Down 47%) It's oversold. He's watching it and may buy back his position. They've gotten into cannabis retailing out west and are looking at Ontario where he expects them to have a strong presence. Note: Aurora bought 25% of CLIQ at $15/share (today $5). Ouch.

(A Top Pick Apr 24/18, Up 47%) They have a strong position in BC gaming and are bidding in Ontario. He's trimmed his position, but really likes this still. GC basically has a monopoly on gaming in Toronto, and are building across Ontario. Toronto is underserved with lots of demand, so it will be lucrative for GC. He'll own this for the long haul.

There is short-term data that says there is short-term housing weakness across North America, but HD is a well-run business. They don't entirely depend on new homes; in fact, they also depend on existing homeowners removating their homes. They can benefit from weather events, short term. The US housing market will remain strong for coming years. A blue chip stock.
