I wrote about the growing bullish consensus surrounding global mining stocks, particularly copper, for Wednesday’s Globe Investor newsletter.

Scotiabank analyst Orest Wowkodaw published a report Thursday morning contributing to the discussion with a list of top picks in the sector,

“The copper (Cu) equities have staged an impressive recovery following the painful COVID-19-related sell-off in March, largely on trend with the improving Cu price (which is now at a remarkable two-year high). Given the strong rally, which admittedly, occurred sooner than we had anticipated, we have stepped back and reviewed the current risk/reward proposition for the equities. Although we believe that the equities as a group appear to be largely pricing in spot Cu and that valuations appear mixed, we continue to recommend exposure to CS-T, FCX-N, FM-T, LUN-T, NCU-T, TECK.B-T, and TRQ-T. Among the producers, CS-T, HBM-T, and LUN-T appear the most attractively priced, while FCX-N and FM-T have exceptional leverage to higher prices, material near-term growth, and are both potential takeover targets in our view”

Citi global strategist Chris Montagu screens the MSCI World index each month using a proprietary model emphasizing price momentum and attractive valuations.

The screen has uncovered three Canadian stocks – Sun Life Financial Inc., Enbridge Inc., and Canadian National Railway Co. – as moving into the top decile for attractiveness,

“We measure relative Value using one of two metrics. The primary metric is the ratio of the stock’s P/E to its theoretical fair value, which we estimate using a cross sectional model. If we cannot calculate such a value due to missing data then we use the ratio of the stock’s P/B to its theoretical value instead. Our composite Momentum score consists of three distinct elements: price momentum, abnormal trading volume (stocks which are currently more heavily traded than normal have a more sustainable source of momentum that is still building) and earnings/cashflow revisions (the change in the outlook for earnings and cashflow).’

Sun-Life, Enbridge, and CN Rail are listed as the top picks for the financials, energy and industrials sectors respectively. The other top picks by sector are KDDI , Sony, the A2 Milk Company , Teva Pharmaceuticals Industries (ADR), SAP, Fortesque Metals and Iberdrola.
