Iconic Canadian brand. China-Canada relations are a concern. Stocks with Chinese exposure have pulled back. Operationally, everything is great. Will continue to expand. You can own names like this and Tim Horton's, because there's tremendous value in the brand.

(A Top Pick Sep 10/18, Down 9%) Added more on the way down. A core holding. Sold off because last quarter wasn't great. Concern about the refining unit. Pretty good bounce off the bottom. Still volatility on the refinery side, but the other 90% of the company is executing extremely well. True great Canadian growth company, so no reason to abandon it here.

(A Top Pick Sep 10/18, Down 22%) Brookfield has the Midas touch. It's a private equity type vehicle. You put it aside, and in the tough times you have to remember not to sell it. Lots of leverage involved, so when markets go down, value of the underlying assets goes down. A good stable of companies. Just buy and hold.

Centres on the outlook for gold and gold producers. It's been an abandoned sector, but the fundamentals are pointing higher. US dollar has rolled over, starting to see inflation in the US, and it's held in well while markets have gone higher. There's been a move in the commodity in the last 6-8 weeks. Producers in this ETF benefit from higher gold prices. Most people recommend you own some gold, too risky not to own any. Gradual move higher, rather than spikes, and that's positive for the group.

Well liked name. Intermediate-junior area, one of the most successful names. Most important asset, in Africa, has been really successful. It's important to them, and also to others, so there's the possibility of some M&A. (Analysts’ price target is $5.16)

Long history in Canada. Very sensitive to the economic cycle. Now that recession has been put off, it's at a better entry level. Has been a very expensive stock. New management made complementary, but expensive, acquisitions. Given the pullback, he'd be inclined to buy. Well run, and deserves its high multiple. In choppy markets, it will be one of the first to sell off.
