An insider’s investment picks

November 30, 2016


Grant White, an Investment Advisor at National Bank Financial, shares his three top investment picks.


“Overall we think Powercorp is a great business and we like the idea of investing alongside the Desmarais family,” White says. “They have a strong balance sheet and we like the multiples it is trading at, especially when you consider that the PE ratio is below Great West life. We think there is a small arbitrage there. Most importantly it’s a good business that we feel we can own for a long time.”

Berkshire Hathaway

“We are big Buffett fans on our team so naturally one of our favourite holdings is Berkshire. Buying good companies at below their intrinsic value is a strategy which has proven to outperform on a long-term basis. For the same reasons we like Powercorp, we believe in the strategy that Buffett and Munger implement and feel that when you can buy Berkshire at good prices it makes sense to.”


“From a Canadian bank perspective, we like TD right now. We like the valuation it’s currently trading at and believe in its long-term strategy as well as their ability to grow the dividend.”
