BUY on WEAKNESS
Canada's largest printing and packaging operation. EPS was .51 cents. A bit of a disappointment. They benefitted from the emergency wage subsidy. Right now, they are facing difficult comparison to last year, especially with currency conversion with the Canadian dollar coming back to strength. Yields 4%. Has M&A optionality. Has re-rating potential as their packaging business grows. This pullback is a buying opportunity.

TOP PICK
Canada's largest commercial printing company, and increasingly a force to be reckoned with in flexible packaging. Printing business is fairly mature, which is the cash cow. Free cashflow is used to grow organically and make acquisitions in flexible packaging, especially in food and beverages. Secularly a good growth industry. Expects a re-rating on the shares. 14% ROE. Steady dividend grower. Exemplifies quality, industry leadership, value, cyclicality. Yield is 3.62%. (Analysts’ price target is $27.00)

BUY
Represents value and cyclicality, which have been rewarded. Stable printing business, depressed volumes are coming back. New direction in flexible packaging is exciting and a growth business. Have made some specialty printing acquisitions. Consistent dividend grower, which should return this year. Potential for a multiple re-rating is significant. Lots of upside.

BUY
Likes it. A cyclical business. Commercial business has rationalized costs for base business and made some acquisitions. Good cashflow. There is a lack of growth but they are solving it with m&a. Valuation is cheap at 6x cashflow and enterprise value. Could be choppy around earnings releases. Overall trend is in a good direction. A long.

TOP PICK

It is a recent addition to his portfolios. It is Canada's largest commercial printing operation and unnoticed by the majority of investors. They are going to be a big player in the flexible packaging industry. It will be more like CCL industries. They are best known for their fliers. They have been shrinking that footprint. The shares are inexpensive. They have a long history of growing the dividend. The stock should turn up dramatically this year as it was depressed last year. (Analysts’ price target is $25.25)

HOLD
Very cheap, trading below book value. Balance sheet is a little heavy. Great yield. Historically miss earnings. Consolidate a declining industry and try to rationalize it by cutting costs. He holds if for the yield and the valuation. Have to be patient.
publishing / printing
DON'T BUY
It's failed to execute, though it has stopped falling. Hasn't created a meaningful rally.
publishing / printing
DON'T BUY
A printing company that's grown by acquiring. But printing is cyclical and a declining industry, and TCL won't perform well in the coming downturn. TCL has good managers, though. They've missed their numbers in recent quarters.
publishing / printing
PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Jul 25/18, Down 49%) You have to have a sell-side discipline, and sold out before making devastating losses.
publishing / printing
DON'T BUY
It pays a good dividend, but growth will be difficult. They need acquisitions to grow and this sector, magazines, is sluggish. Advertising has gone online, not in print.
publishing / printing
COMMENT
A big drop at the end of February, perhaps due to earnings. Will it hold the current low of $14? So far it is. The market is currently evaluating this stock and falling to $7 is possible. Consider tax-loss selling if this drifts down.
publishing / printing
PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick May 24/18, Down 44%) They are transforming from a printing company to a packing company. They made an acquisition that still has not created traction. They spin off a lot of free cash flow -- about 17%. The valuation is only 5 times earnings -- very cheap. You could hold or wait to see some upside momentum to add new cash.
publishing / printing
HOLD
This is a very strong management team. They made a decision to go into packaging, and there was a huge learning curve. Take a long term view on this one. It will take years to learn this new business.
publishing / printing
PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Apr 05/18, Down 44%) A bad pick he admits. Commercial print business that tries to drive down costs in their acquisitions. A stretched balance sheet matched with an earnings miss. Trades 6 times cash flow and 7 times PE. The stock is too volatile and the balance sheet is at risk.
publishing / printing
HOLD
He has exposure to them, but is taking a wait and see approach in light of the recent sell off. It appears cheap at 6 times earnings and a 5.5% dividend. He will not add to his position yet. Be cautious.
