It has done phenomenally well. There are high expectations of them still buying companies. If you're a long-term holder, don't sell, but taking light profits is not a bad idea. It's had a monster run in the past year. ATD plans to grow their presence in North America and Europe.

Or buy gold itself? He's not a gold bug. FNV is unique because it is a gold royalty company and not concerned with the daily price of gold. It's better to own this than actual physical gold, because it's less volatile, untouched by geopolitical headlines. Otherwise, invest outside gold.

A tremendous holding since their IPO. Now, there's a lot of scrutiny in the tech space as the US government investigates the tech giants to clean up YouTube searches. This is a slight caution, but at the end of the day advertisers won't abandon YouTube. Hold.

BAC vs. Citigroup if a recession happens He owns both, but he prefers Citigroup, because it has a lower valuation, trading below tangible book value and pays a higher dividend.

Why is it flat despite impressive metrics? Yes, he's frustrated too. Why is it flat? MFC remains a show-me story. MFC needs to right the ship in annuities. True, Asia is their growth engine, but MFC needs a higher yield curve; rates are flat or lowering. So, this hurts all lifecos as well as banks. That said, MFC pays a good dividend and it's cheap, so he continues to hold it. Over time, investors will get rewarded, but until then, you will be rewarded by that dividend. MFC is pushing its investment service. Also, they will bring their asset management expertise in India in a new joint venture and this will let them pick up more assets to manage and develop into a new growth engine in the next 20 years.
