His favorite US bank. Go big or go home. The best managed and smartest commercial bank. There is room to raise the dividend, although it is in the late part of the cycle. He is not seeing significant loan losses. A solidly capitalized bank making the dividend safer today.

One of the three big bond rating services in the US. As such they have great pricing power and customers have to use you. When a bond gets rolled over, MCO-N will re-rate it. A great company with a great moat to protect it. He is happy to continue to hold it.

One of the pioneers in integrated circuits. They are benefiting from the use of their circuits in almost all consumer and commercial products. A well run company. The dividend should be sustainable and able to grow. More of an income stock than a growth stock now however. Yield 2.8%

They have a number of huge problems, including the threat of class-action litigation and official prosecution. The contracting business does not seem to be able to make money. The assets are worth more than $16 per share. The issue becomes what is your appetite to accept other people's problems. He does not know if this is the time to buy. It could be the falling knife. He is nervous about it and is not buying.

The last garment business standing in Canada. Their success depends on the ability to move goods across the border. He always thought this was a story that was not going to come to a good end. Shipping from lower cost producers is just too prohibitive. He does not own it and does not see the value proposition.

He likes them and owns it for clients. If you want to move things by rail there are only two companies -- the definition of an oligopoly with strong price control. The threat of an oncoming recession only offsets some of the need to move commodities. He thinks it will do just fine as a hold.

A quick gain in 6 months? He is not a speculative trader -- he buys to own it 5-10 years. He thinks it is a great company and keeps selling more and more advertisements. It also has a host of lottery tickets that may pay off -- autonomous driving as an example. He calls it a must own.
