(A Top Pick Apr 25/19, Down 20%) He still owns this and added during March. He likes their US propane distribution system and acquisitions into the US northeast. They worked hard to sell their chemical business, but were not able to get the price they wanted. People need propane, so he sees this as an essential business. This is a good time to buy.

(A Top Pick Apr 11/19, Down 11%) He still likes this. He bought when it yielded over 7%. The unique thing that happened was the announcement of the sale of their chemical business. They sold out of their position around $13.50 and took profit. When it was later announced the sale was not going ahead, the share prices dropped. Now with the recent sell off in the general market he has been back in buying. With a 6-7% dividend yield it is attractive.

Backed out of a deal? They announced 3 months ago they wanted to sell their European chemical business. When no material offers came then they backed out. They have a lot of debt they were planning to down following the failed divestiture. They have re-instated the DRIP program, which is dilutive to holders he adds. He still owns it and still likes their yield. A stable propane business with good margins. A good buy here. Yield 6.2%

New highs. Valuations are high in the market, and it's hard to get good yield in a bond portfolio. It's not expensive with a good price-earning ratio with a dividend. It's a propane franchise, and it's probably undervalued. A good roll-up story going forward. (Analysts’ price target is $14.95)

Pays a 6.1% dividend. The payout is 40%. Sales were up 5% last quarter, but earnings were down 44%, an 11% negative surprise, and earnings estimates have been chopped 18% in the last 90 days. The coming quarter is expected to see a 30% rebound in earnings. Earnings are expected to jump 70% in the coming year. Their 11% ROE is reasonable. But this ranks low in his rankings.

It is a play on their growth in the propane business in the northeast. The energy part of their business is about 80% and is the focus. They did a good job with a few acquisitions. The market took it too low. They pay out only half of their earnings. Retail distribution is much better the wholesale. It could move to $13-$14. (Analysts’ price target is $14.39)

A bond proxy. From 2016 to early-2017 it had an uptrend, then a pullback. This year, the uptrend has resumed. He likes the chart--it's currently on the upside. Also pays a decent dividend. Let's see if it tests upside resistance at $14.

This trades a 15.5 times earnings vs peers trading at 17 times. He likes it. Distributions are safe. A play on a slightly better economy. 66% energy, 33% specialty chemicals. The balance sheet is a little stretched. A name you can buy for risk-adjusted accounts. Not a blue chip.

This was a pure propane business, and then went into building products, pulp chemicals, and none of those worked out very well. The history of expanding its product line is not a great one. However, this has been a strong dividend payer for a long time. Doesn’t think it has tremendous growth potential and that their propane business is always going to be a kind of “on the margin” type of business. You own this for the dividend yield of 5.7%, not the growth.

This had a very big move today. They got approval to buy CanWest, which he sees as double digit accretive. The balance sheet is getting better. He models 15% EPS growth and 5% cash flow per share growth. A 61% payout ratio giving you a 6%+ dividend to wait. Another good name that is coming alive.

The largest propane distributor in Canada. They sold their construction division. He likes this company and if it is a colder winter it will do even better. It is a well run company.

They just had a solid quarter in all segments, and upped their guidance a percent higher than the midpoint for 2016. He is modelling cash flow growth at 11% from 2016 to 2018, compounded annually. 61% payout ratio of cash flow. The generous dividend of 6% looks safe. Their balance sheet might be a little more levered than he would like. This is probably an opportunity.

Has a very small position in this. Great yield of 6%. The balance sheet is not a problem. Valuation is fine at 10X EBITDA. Missed on a recent quarter which is why the price momentum has rolled off. Probably not a terrible stock to own here.

Has a propane division as well as heating oil in the US, as well as some chemicals. Sold their US construction distribution business, and the balance sheet is better because of that. With a colder weather in Western Canada, he expects them to have good results. Also, expects them to raise their dividend over time. Dividend yield of 5.7%.

50% energy services, 35% chemical and 16% building. He likes the company. It has a 71% payout ratio, so the dividend should be pretty safe. They are trying to acquire Canexus (CUS-T) which would make them a more formidable player in the chemical space. Trading in line with its peers, but is a lot cheaper than its energy services peers. Have done a really good job of cost-cutting.

Acquiring all of Canexus (CUS-T) assets. The deal has been stretching out forever. There are cost synergies. Anything uncertain casts a pall over stocks for a while. The decision has been delayed until June 29, and they are either going to get approval or divest one of their existing plants. Also, propane prices are a little better and should perk up some. Not a bad Buy under $11.

3 different businesses. 1) Propane distribution, mainly out of the US, 2) chemicals and 3) a construction products division. The construction products division has done very well and he thinks they will eventually divest this. Propane distribution is very steady. Chemicals can be up and down depending on what happens in the oil/gas markets. The only thing you have to worry about is whether they will be successful or not in acquiring Canexus (CUS-T). A good place to be and doesn’t think you will get too much interest rate sensitivity on this.

Had probably been the single best company in Canada 15 years ago in terms of monopoly franchise and what they did. Then they bought other diversified businesses which collapsed and had to restructure. It has now been cleaned up and is on his list of companies that he would probably like at the right price. However, a lot of the move will probably be geared to the construction market in the US, which might or might not happen. This is being fixed, but you still have this propane monopoly. The 16% dividend really looks secure.
