One of his favourites. Not cheap. Had a great year. Defensible business model. Tremendous moat, so they can trade at a higher multiple, which they will continue to execute on. Will continue to justify the multiple. There will be new competitors, but doesn't think this will impair its margins or growth profile.

Exercise caution. Big move in the underlying companies, so you're always susceptible to a pullback. Shift focus more to the US, where you can get more reasonable valuations. US market is 10x what Canada's is. Money spirals in, and out, of these ETFs. Tough to justify valuations in Canada right now. It's a psychology trade.

Spike in a bunch of the iron ore names. LIF is a beneficiary of concerns about global supply. Move higher is temporary. Good business model, pretty good yield. He'd be concerned with Chinese growth, if it continues to sell, iron ore will suffer. He'd trim.

Very strong yield right now. Concerns over the dividend. This is one of the last things they want to do, so he thinks dividend is safe. A play on oil with a ton of assets outside Canada. (Analysts’ price target is $41.27)

Well run. Significant insider ownership, not expensive. If he owned it, he'd hold. If he didn't own it, he'd look at it. Tremendous growth in front of it. Fastest-growing company in the REIT space. Subject to the vagaries of interest rates and real estate prices.

A number of catalysts: earnings, big investor day, buying back in Aeroplan. Aeroplan will have the biggest impact for EBITDA, solves earnings and cash flow being volatile, smooth out quarterly fluctuations, and you'll get the premium multiple of US names, added synergies like revenue. Concerns are the economy and travel, but profits will go higher. It's come back from the dead. Harvest free cash flow from past investments. No dividend. (Analysts’ price target is $37.57)

One of the leaders in supply chain management. A tough Q3, but since then they've announced a couple of big contracts, like Unilever and Novartis. Not cheap, but he continues to buy. No dividend. (Analysts’ price target is $97.77)
