COMMENT
Reaction to Altice USA offer to buy Cogeco? Offer seems relatively fair. Shares are relatively undervalued in the market, so the premium was offered as enticement. A long way from being a done deal. Telecom returns haven't been that robust over the last little while, so it represented a good chance to take some profits.

BUY
Pretty robust pipeline. Nice earnings. Target price bumped up. Just below all-time highs and will most likely move up to the $100s or 110s. A tech name in the TSX that would make a lot of sense for people.

RISKY BUY

Getting some recognition with digital transformation of health. Had a nice bounce over the last few weeks. More on the risky side. Don't put all your eggs in. One of those names that, if you looked back 10 years from now, might be the next Shopify. Seems to be well run.

PARTIAL BUY
As easy as it gets for passive investment. Broad-based exposure to the Canadian market. Financials, tiny bit of energy, lifecos, pipelines. If you expect returns over time of 6-7%, it's a good holding. Income stream is pretty solid. Markets are a bit overbought right now, so don't go full bolt right now. Instead, dollar cost average in.
