RISKY BUY
He uses their software to manage data among customers and employees. A young company and aren't making money yet. Enjoyed a rally during the pandemic, but has fallen since then. This could emerge strong under their leadership.Hang on and see how it recovers. Wait 5 years before you know it's a winner. Be patient.
Technology
SELL
They supply software to companies, such as analytics. Trades at a high 50x earnings, and their earnings outlook for 12 months is flat. A great company, but a hold at best, but would otherwise sell it.

SLF vs. ATD'B ATD is doing very well because oil prices are high. Also, they are on the verge of buying a company. Both add to upside. SLF is the best Canadian insurer, with stable, but slow earnings growth. It will benefit from higher interest rates. Buy and put away and own for the dividend. Shares are down 5-10% from last year's high, so good to enter now.

BUY on WEAKNESS
A classic growth stock. The market got excited over it for its dominance in videogames; they entered cars and warehousing. Then the market slowed down. Trades at a high PE. Great long term, but is watching what happens in 6-9 months. Could be more downside, but average down.

Are bank stocks safe again? Canadian banks have outperformed the TSX throughout his entire career. There's fear that rising rates will make mortgages uncertain. But given this correction, you can nibble at the Canadian banks now, one of the safest assets in Canada, since they are protected by law. His favourite bank here is BNS given their exposure in South America, which were badly hit by Covid and they have wide mining exposure. The safer bet is CIBC, because it's well-managed, is more exposed to the Canadian economy which is thriving because of demand for natural resources, and it pays a good dividend.

TOP PICK
Still incredible growth of 15% annually for the next few years with earnings at 18-20%, he projects. It trades at 22.5x PE and they will buy back $78 billion (5% of market cap) in shares over the next 12 months. Their cloud business is #3 behind AWS and MSFT and growing nicely. Ad revenues will hold. They're spending $30 billion in R&D; divisions like Waymo are huge and not even absorbed in the stock. The best of the FAANGs. (Analysts’ price target is $3274.28)
