It's not talked about like it used to. It's huge growth 15 years ago has tapered off. HD lives and dies with the home reno business. It's well-run. It is effected by e-commerce like all retailers though.

The airlines are a lot smarter now. It's an oligopoly in the U.S. Only a few airlines control the gates at major airports. Flights fly to hubs and not between smaller cities, which is inconvenient for consumers. They also charge consumers for every little thing like peanuts. Also, more people can afford to fly now.

They made a huge acquisition of Hull Consulting. Earnings come out on Thursday. It is economically sensitive--that's a caveat. He expects pretty good earnings, but wait until earnings are released to be safe.

A power house and great company, but it has one big problem: it operates in a dictatorship. What's to stop the government from replacing all its managers or hijacking all shareholder value? Look at what the Chinese government has done to Canadian canola oil producers.

Anti-trust fears Privacy is an interesting topic now. Millions of people have open microphones (i.e. Alexa) in their homes--people are willing to sacrifice their privacy to enjoy the convenience of their technology. He doesn't expect Mark Zuckerberg to go to jail, not at all. Nor will Facebook go bankrupt because of anti-trust laws. There are two big car companies in the U.S., three major airlines, five big banks in Canada, and so on.

He's been a fan of BNS for many years. Moving into Latin America was a good idea, but TD and RY were smarter to expand into the U.S. BNS hasn't scored as well in Latin American as he expected, so he now favours TD as well as National Bank.

Recession fears hitting BPY.UN Lower interest rates help them, because their properties are leveraged. The Brookfield group as a whole has a very long-term horizon, and an investor should buy with that long time frame. This will do well in the long, long term.
