Market. In general, you are going to see more volatility in the small and mid-cap space, but this earning’s season has been a pretty strong one and there has been a lot of movement. Those smaller companies are nice because, since they are growing from a smaller base, they don’t necessarily need as large a contract to get a boost to the bottom line. He believes in diversification, but if he were going to choose sectors he would want to be light on it would be the energy and materials. Those are sectors where companies have no control over the price.

2017-08-02 WAIT Must be logged in to use chart AD-T Alaris Royalty

A company he wants to like. It has a nice distribution, but they’ve run into issues with some investments they’ve made. The nature of this business is that they make concentrated investments, so that when one goes bad, it can really impact the results. Currently they have 2 that are having issues. Management’s forecast for 2017 seems to be a breakeven payout ratio. They have some cash, so doesn’t think there are going to be cuts, but it is tight. He would give it 6 months.

2017-08-02 BUY Must be logged in to use chart AW.UN-T A&W Revenue Royalties Income Fund

A good start for income. Had some really strong same store sales growth 6-12 months ago, but that has now come off, so the shares have slid a bit. It got to a point where it got oversold, in a lot of cases just because the stock was down. Their quarter was okay and they had a same-store sales growth of .7%, and are going to be able to grow the top line by adding restaurants to the royalty pool. For income purposes, he would be fine with this. Dividend yield of 5%.

2017-08-02 COMMENT Must be logged in to use chart BIP.UN-T Brookfield Infrastucture Partners

Doesn’t follow this company to closely, but does like the infrastructure space. It’s a good way to diversify your assets on the equity side, and you are still getting a real asset focus. Has no issue with this.

2017-08-02 PAST TOP PICK Must be logged in to use chart BOS-T Airboss of America

(A Top Pick June 24/16. Down 4.25%.) He pulled this after they had some pretty bad news and poor earning results. Management is doing the right thing by paying down debt and buying back shares. Their free cash flow is still fairly strong. He wouldn’t bother owning this until you saw some better outlook coming from management.

2017-08-02 COMMENT Must be logged in to use chart BPF.UN-T Boston Pizza Royalties

Good distribution. His main concern is that this would be a little more sensitive to an economic downturn because receipts for company like this are going to be higher than something like an A&W. He would be fine with this holding. 6.2% dividend yield.

2017-08-02 COMMENT Must be logged in to use chart CBL-T Callidus Capital Corp

Things look pretty interesting right now. Payout ratio looks very low in the 10%-20% range. They provide financing to distressed companies. The core business is high risk, but all loans are backed by the assets of the Company they are providing financing to. They’ve had an independent valuation from National Bank (NA-T) and their price is $16-$18, and are in the process of trying to sell it right now. The sales process has been delayed so they are opening up to more potential buyers. To him, the distribution looks quite safe.

2017-08-02 COMMENT Must be logged in to use chart CGX-T Cineplex Inc

This is kind of short-term risk and long-term money. The short-term wasn’t a great quarter when they missed. A lot of their results are dependent on the movie slate that they get. The company has been efficient at driving revenues per user and increasing margins at their retail outlets. He likes the steps they are taking to diversify their revenues. You don’t need to rush into it today, but as a long-term goal, this is fine.

2017-08-02 COMMENT Must be logged in to use chart CRH-T CRH Medical Corp.

Provides anaesthesia services for gastro-intestinal procedures. They operate in the US, and Medicare and Medicaid are evaluating what people can bill for services. The company has said that the net impact will probably result in an 8% decline in revenue and a 16%-18% decline in EBITDA. When the news broke, the shares dropped about 50%-65%, so it is getting to a time where it has probably been a little oversold. This is going to be higher risk, so you need to be able to withstand 5% moves on any given day. They just did another acquisition and there is a hint that they will be doing many more.

2017-08-02 BUY Must be logged in to use chart GPS-T BSM Technologies

He likes this company and has recently started covering it. They have a hedge fund that is backing and supporting them. Essentially, the company does GPS technologies in  fleets, etc. They’ve cited a number of large companies that could be coming on board down the road. Growing at a pretty good clip. If you are patient with this, it will do well for you.

2017-08-02 COMMENT Must be logged in to use chart GUD-T Knight Therapeutics

A company that he quite likes. There are 2 key things. 1.) You have to be patient as about 50% of their market cap is in cash, and the company is going to take their time to spend that. 2.) You need to trust that management can build the company up and sell it for a good profit. It is probably a 3-5 year timeframe that is needed.

2017-08-02 COMMENT Must be logged in to use chart HR.UN-T H&R Real Estate Inv Trust

Not a big fan of the REIT space right now. There are a lot of headwinds facing it. You have higher interest rates, so margins are going to get compressed. There is also the Amazon (AMZN-Q) issue with retail storefronts closing down with everybody moving to e-commerce. He would rather look for something with a steadier growth behind it. Prefers the healthcare side of REITs.

2017-08-02 COMMENT Must be logged in to use chart KWH.UN-T Crius Energy Trust

He likes this and holds it in their model income portfolio. It has about a 7%-8% distribution right now, which is very attractive. Even if the stock does nothing, you are still making 8%. The payout looks fine. They are growing their distribution at about 5% per quarter currently. Payout ratio is about 70%-80%. They acquired a US company, US Gas & Electric, that looks good and will add more growth.

2017-08-02 WATCH Must be logged in to use chart MTY-T MTY Food Group

Management team is quite strong. They’ve done a really, really good job of growing the company. Did some fairly large acquisitions recently, so the debt profile has changed and there is a bit more risk. The real story is that same-store sales has been flat to slightly falling over the last few quarters. Likes the name, but until same-store sales start to pick up, he wouldn’t be too interested. Priced at a premium right now.

2017-08-02 DON'T BUY Must be logged in to use chart NEPT-T Neptune Tech & Bioresource

He doesn’t follow this company. Over the last 5 years, they’ve lost about 70% of value per shareholder. When a company is below $100 million, having come from above $100 million, he is not a big fan.
