Best physical gold on the TSX Using GLD in the US. There is one equivalent on the TSX with a currency hedge but can't remember the ticker. Good exposure to the physical metal without the currency impact of trading gold in USD.

Allan Tong’s Discover Picks Expedia, like the hotels and airlines it links to, has pricing power. Trading above $130, EXPE is still far below its highs of $217.72, which is precisely the price target going forward. The street is split between 12 holds and 12 buys. The PE of 106x is a concern, more in line for a tech company than a tourist attraction like Six Flags Entertainment, which trades at 16x.

BUY
Allan Tong’s Discover Picks Airbnb trades above 100x which the street finds too high, given its forward PE of 70.53x, so consider this a note of caution. However, the stock has beaten its last four quarters during periods of blanket lockdowns. Buying Airbnb is wagering on strong summer numbers and all indicators noted above point to one.

TOP PICK
Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly WBA continues to show positive fundamentals and rising dividends and is again reiterated as a TOP PICK. Recently reported earnings beat expectations by 14% and support a 20% ROE. It trades at only 1.6x book value and 6x earnings, compared to peers at 14x. It has been paying dividends for 88 consecutive years and increasing them for 46 consecutive years, currently backed by a payout ratio under 30% of cash flow. Cash reserves continue to increase while retiring debt. We continue to recommend a stop loss at $40, looking to achieve $50 -- upside potential over 17%. Yield 4.4% (Analysts’ price target is $49.85)

It trades at 8x earnings compared to peers at 11x and and supports a healthy 23% ROE. It continues to build cash reserves will retiring debt.
