BUY
Still extremely cheap, despite the run up last year. Lumber prices are back above $1000 again. Huge cashflow at these prices. Concerns US housing market will slow, but there just isn't enough supply, so demand will persist. No debt, good price momentum and valuation. Can buy here.

Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O’Reilly We once again reiterate this producer of lumber, pulp and paper with 60 facilities in Canada, the US, United Kingdom and Europe as a TOP PICK. Annual EPS growth has exceeded 50% for the past three years. It trades under 10x earnings and only at 1.7x book. It pays a small dividend, backed by a payout ratio under 10% of cashflow. We recommend maintaining the stop at $108, looking to achieve $149 -- upside potential over 22%. Yield 1.06% (Analysts’ price target is $149.12)

TOP PICK
Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly We again reiterate this producer of lumber, pulp and paper with 60 facilities in Canada, the US, United Kingdom and Europe as a TOP PICK. Recently reported earnings again beat analyst expectations and the latest consensus calls for EPS growth of 15% over the same quarter last year, when it reports mid-month. It trades well under its peers, who are valued at 24x earnings. It pays a small dividend, backed by a payout ratio under 10% of cashflow. We recommend trailing up the stop (from $95) to $108, looking to achieve $149 -- upside potential over 18%. Yield 0.84% (Analysts’ price target is $148.32)

TOP PICK
One of the biggest players in lumber. Paid some extra dividends from the lumber price strength. The biggest and probably safest way to play lumber. Prices are now normalizing. Social media mentions at 1050% over the last 24 hours.

BUY
The lumber stocks had an incredible run with lumber prices running up. One of the biggest player in lumber. It paid some extra dividends. Lumber prices are now normalizing. Biggest and probably the safest.
west coast forestry
HOLD
Lumber stocks have dropped only 10-15% in the last little bit. Longer term, should benefit from increasing US housing demand. US represents about 65% of its revenue. Concern is tariffs. Valuation is a large discount to historical averages. Hold, and watch your stop losses.
west coast forestry
WATCH
Commodity prices have been so strong and they generated a lot of cash flow. But lumber prices have come off. There could be a leg higher on these names, but you have to see what happens to the commodity price. Watch for another up-leg.

TOP PICK
Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly With lumber prices up 300% and demand strong for renovations, it is challenging to find an entry into the space at good value. This is the sweet spot for WFG, having 60 facilities in Canada, the US, United Kingdom and Europe. Recently reported sales were up 81%. It trades at 8x earnings, compared to peers over 17x. It pays a small dividend, backed by a payout ratio of under 10% of cashflow. We would buy this with a stop loss at $60, looking to achieve $136 -- upside potential over 38%. Yield 0.82% (Analysts’ price target is $135.70)

DON'T BUY
Timber has been a great place to be this year. Not sure why it's dropped today. Well run, but an expensive multiple at 3.7x book value. How long will the lumber cycle last? Their cycles tend to be longer than other commodities.
west coast forestry
TOP PICK
Lumber prices have soared YOY over 300%. Free cash flow yield at 14.4% is very high. The latest report said that earnings were up 50% and earnings are forecast to grow 35% to $16 ROE in 2021 at a PE of 6.4x. Analyst estimates have jumped 81%. (Analysts’ price target is $112.68)

HOLD
The giant after their acquisition. Scores on valuation and price momentum. More expensive than Interfor. Brookfield, a major owner, has been selling their stake. Hold for now.
west coast forestry
BUY

An exciting time in home builders. Under made homes for several years in the US. A powerful rally. Likes that WFG is now a combined entity. WEF is a small cap and is more whippy. Both are good.

COMMENT

Will the Buy American campaign affect WFT? He expects their coming report to be strong, given the housing boom, including renovations. WFT recently bought Norbord, which signals that they expects this housing boom to last years. All timber stocks are lumpy with returns happening in pockets (either really good returns or bad returns). So, consider lumber a trade and not a buy-and-hold. Buy America: Companies like WFT are changing geographies according to asset ownership from entirely Canada to abroad, including the U.S. Their ticker will change to WFG on the TSX. They likely have some American assets. Potential tariffs on software lumber will continue to be a risk.
