3 top stock picks from GlobeInvest’s Peter Brieger

Peter Brieger for market call

Peter Brieger is CEO and managing director of GlobeInvest Capital Management. His focus is on North American large caps.

Top Picks:

Bonavista Energy Trust
The current yield reflects past fears that the distribution is unsustainable. However, with the past and projected future improvement in natural gas prices, we think the dividend is safe and with that the share price can return to early 2013 levels.

TTEK is a world leader in providing consulting, engineering and project management services to U.S. governments and global companies in the water and environmental areas.

With the continuing decline in the value of paper currencies, in no small part because of governments' failure to successfully deal with their deficit and debt problems, gold's attraction as a store of value will increase.

Market Outlook:

From oversold levels, both the TSX and the S&P 500 have retraced more than one-half of their recent declines on the back of hopes that 1) the Washington politicians will avoid going over the fiscal cliff, 2) the latest housing data, which provides the basis for a long-term recovery and 3) signs that the Chinese economy has bottomed and will show improving growth going forward. However, there are major obstacles to overcome before there will be clear sailing for markets.
