Money flows from cyclicals to defense if a vaccine comes in 2021? Residential property REITS have been resilient in the REIT space. Likes and respects this company. The bigger secular stories are demographics, immigration and urbanization. CAP managers have executed well for many years. Short-term, this is low beta. So, if there's a massive recovery (via a vaccine), money will flow from REITS like this as well as tech. But long-term, this is a proven value creator.

COMMENT
Silver outlook after recent run-up He's not a commodities expert, but gold and silver are in primary bull markets. Gold is enigmatic, especially--so, obey what the charts tell you. This means, when gold makes moves, it makes BIG, bold moves, not small ones. Gold could go much higher in years to come. Silver is like high-beta gold with fewer markets and less participation from central banks and ETFs. Silver has more industrial uses than gold, so if there's a broad recovery, silver should do well. We're in the early stages of a recovery, and he expects gold and silver to do well.

HOLD
The stock is mispriced, because it's mid-sized, doesn't carry a huge weight in the TSX and has little analyst coverage. It's been dragged down by apathy towards all oil, an unloved sector. But he still buys it, and he expects better commodity prices and/or weaker companies will fade and investors will realize that Parex is a cash-rich, resilient company. Be patient.
