Start a position at $240? Positives: top-shelf management with a history of returning 50% of free cash flow each year through dividends and stock buys. They're massive and have cost advantage. Cons: in consolidation now. He takes a longer view on UNH, but wouldn't buy it now. There's no rush to. UNH is also beta. Numbers solid, but UNH isn't cheap. Watch it.

Not a bad name, and he likes aerospace/defence. Also, geopolitical tensions remain in the world (i.e. North Korea and Russia). LMT is good, but you can also look at Raytheon which focuses on cyber and missile defence; also have heavy international exposure. Also look at the ITA ETF.

It'll be more bearish than one may expect. GE has so much to prove and they've been restructuring for years and years. It won't return to $7, but there is a lot to prove. Starting to see good fundamental underpinnings. He needs to see technical confirmation (i.e. earnings).

Metlife vs. Prudential vs US banks Both are high quality and international. Strong. He doesn't love lifecos now, because there's a lot going on in health, such as the prevalance of diabetes. He wants to see higher interest rates which can benefit lifecos. As for banks, he'd stay away. The rates and yield curve have flattened. Met are doing the right thing, like a nice dividend and a big share buybacks. It isn't expensive and doing 10% earnings growth, but there are greener pastures elsewhere.

(A Top Pick Mar 19/18, Up 6%) It's getting a lot of heat now over a big fine by the EU with anti-trust concerns. The underlying numbers continue to be phenomenal. They put out numbers about their cloud financial at $4 billion, and cloud is an oligopoly with Microsoft and Amazon. The cloud story is big and they're doing well. Google is not just about search. 15 quarters of 20% revenue growth, driven by cloud.
