TOP PICK

A regional bank. Over the next year, with the confidence the US consumer is going to get with Wall Street Reform and tax reform, this is a name that tends to benefit. Located in a more affluent geography, in the Pacific Northwest, where there is growth in terms of jobs and income. Trading at around 20X. Dividend yield of 1.9%. (Analysts’ price target is $46.)

TOP PICK

In a world where everything is expensive, you try to choose a name that is expensive, but gives you growth. This company continues to be positioned well. The stock has taken a bit of a pause, so he likes that as an entry point. They are doing a lot of things right. They are continuing to do acquisitions and grow. The key is the recent softness on the share price. A bonus is some of the tax reform which they will benefit from. Dividend yield of 2.5%. (Analysts’ price target is $62.)

He likes this over Manulife (MFC-T), because it is basically flat year-over-year. A good insurance business. Their challenge is their US mutual fund MFF which has had big redemptions, because of everybody going into ETF’s. That seems to have turned now. Expects there will be a dividend increase in 2018 along with better results from MFF. Dividend yield of 3.5%. (Analysts’ price target is $54.)

He likes this because of rising interest rates, less regulatory interference and the stock is cheap. Even in a bear market, he doesn’t think this is going to get hurt badly. Dividend yield of 1.7%. (Analysts’ price target is $29.)

Digital Realty Trust(DLR-N) 

December 5, 2017

The world is using an increasing amount of technology with Cloud spaced server space. This company bought a data Centre for about $4 billion recently, which gave them access to a lot of European property, a nice added bonus. Has about 150 data centres globally, and some of the biggest names in the S&P 500. To move this beyond just being a commodity of acreage of data farms, they are adding a level of IT consulting, which have higher margins. Has an effective tax rate of only 3%, so are not getting a lot of love in the last couple of days. Under this pressure, the shares represent a pretty good buying opportunity. Dividend yield of 3.4%. (Analysts’ price target is $127.)

Franco-Nevada Corp.(FNV-T) 

December 5, 2017

This does well in both Bull and Bear markets in the commodity. We are in a sort of undecided “not a lot of love for gold” right now, but gold certainly has a lot of excitement around it. Another thing they’ve done is to move into the royalty streaming business of oil and gas and other precious metals. Dividend yield of 1.2%. (Analysts’ price target is $112.30.)

This is at an all-time high, so what do you do in 2018? Just because this is at an all-time high, why punt it out of your portfolio? In 10 years time, this company will do very well. There is a lot of room left. Dividend yield of 1.9%. (Analysts’ price target is $183.)

Kinross Gold(K-T) 

December 5, 2017

Years ago, they bought the Tasiest mine and paid a horrendous amount of money for it, and then had to write it all off. Now that everything is written off, you have a hard asset. They are now going to enlarge the mine in 2018, and it is going to be a low-cost producer. If we get any kind of a move in bullion at all, the stock should do very, very well. (Analysts’ price target is $6.99.)

There is always going to be a regulatory cloud over Internet gambling. The stock is cheap and had a terrific last earnings quarter, up 22%. If the central US government is going to starve the states by reducing taxes, then they are going to be looking for extra places to get money, and online gambling is a darn good place to find it. (Analysts’ price target is $33.)

Has really good cash flow. The chart shows a bottom that started at the beginning of 2016 and has moved up and formed a nice base in 2017. If it gets above about $7.50, there are pretty big blue skies following. (Analysts’ price target is $9.13.)

Relatively under the radar but one of the top performing companies on the TSX over the last 10-15 years.  They went thought a period of consolidation and broke out on the announcement of an acquisition.  They have a nice dividend.  They have 55 brands.  (Analysts’ target: $51.38).

Not a particularly exciting industry.  They did an acquisition in 2012 and it has been a transformational one.  They made another today and the stock price reacted favorably.  He thinks this announcement just solidifies his opinion of this being a great company.  They have a nice dividend.  (Analysts’ target: $62.00).

Base metals is part of this pro-growth theme. There are some big drivers behind it. There is infrastructure spending, dwindling stockpiles and low new mine builds. Chart shows a nice up trend from the beginning of 2016. It got above the $12.85 level, he would probably add to it.
