Market Outlook. There appears to be a disconnect between the stock market and the economic outlook. Markets are buoyant, while companies continue to load up on debt. Companies have been beating earnings expectations, but earnings growth is deceleration. Share buybacks have been supporting the market, but he thinks now is the time to be more cautious. Watch companies that may have a hard time maintaining dividends.

Energy stocks for diversification? He is a firm believer in diversification and Energy has a good valuation. He might expect to see increased M&A activity by the stronger players. He wouldn't make a huge play in energy right now if you are retired -- it all depends on your personal situation.

Today, the markets sold off after Powell's remarks this afternoon. He's not sure why, but he expects the markets to continue to rise. The Fed must be cautious with rates going forward, and they need to see strong data to support a rise. He's starting to see some exhaustion in his market indicators, though he sees good recovery from his technical indicators. Loblaws reported same-store sales declines today.

Is it smart to sell cannabis producers and buy cannabis retailers who enjoy wider margins? The big issue with retail is weak supply. Once supply ramps up, then retailers will enjoy ramped-up earnings. True, retail margins are strong, but in five years probably, retailers will be as common as liquor stores. Meta Cannabis Supply is a good retailer to buy with more outlets than all, positive revenues as well as earnings.

A new sector to invest in? Energy. The oil price has moved up, but stock prices have lagged, and early reports note that cash flows are rising. Foreign investors will raise Canadian oil stock prices and catch up to the commodity price.
