He is very constructive on lumber and it is his favourite commodity. We saw a double bottom and a pull back. A longer term base is developing. The next 4 year cycle is developing and he sees significant upside and he buys on weakness.

Lumber's seasonality is between early-November and early-March, before people actually buy their homes. Lumber prices are starting to rise from a serious low (and bad year), but they're starting to come back. WFT had a declining trend based on the falling lumber price, but peer Canfor is cutting output which may benefit EFT. He's concerned it touching its 200-day moving average and declining today. Support at $70, its 50-day moving average. If it holds less level, WFT could see higher highs.

Basing after a downtrend. If it breaks $75 it could be very bullish. It is looking constructive.

PAST TOP PICK
West Fraser Timber(WFT-T) 

January 16, 2019

(A Top Pick Feb 20/18, Down 18%) Despite a large increase in the price of lumber and strand board, the stock fell. He sold it in July. An analyst thinks lumber stocks are showing good technical signals. If housing rebounds this stock would benefit significantly. He is not convinced yet.

WFT-T vs. IFP-T. He is still cautious on lumber stocks. We have seen the peak in US housing. Canadian lumber stocks do better with the Canadian dollar down. IFP-T is a better play because at least 50% of the lumber is out of the US. There is probably going to be a bit of a cloud over the sector for some time.

Timber has been a very volatile sector this year. A highly cyclicaly business. Avoid this sector, even though it's been oversold. Sell when this rallies.

(A Top Pick Sep 07/17, Up 15%) This is all related to US housing. 40 – 45% of wood demand goes into repairs and renovations. Their product also goes to China and Japan. About 2/3’s of their operations come from the US. They have a good balance sheet. He expects to see US housing industry pick up in the spring.

He looks for trend reversals. He thinks this one might pull back a dollar of two from here before buying. He is looking to buy at $70 or below. There is a potential for $80 next January or February and he has an exit point of $67. It found good volume at its bottom. (Analysts’ price target is $84.50)

Over the last little while lumber stocks have begun to deteriorate. He removed it from his watch list earlier. It is trying to put in a short term low and then he sees a short term bounce. There will be heavy choppiness over the next little while.

Lumber stocks and home builders in the US have a stock chart like this one – plunging down to the right.  At these levels, the valuations are suggesting a depression is coming – he does not believe in this.  His downside target is $66, so based on his model, it is a buy if the market can find a bottom soon.

Forest stocks have come off due to U.S. trade issues under Trump, which has added US$7,000 to the cost of a US house. This is a good time to buy this.

With all the lumber tariffs, he wouldn't get into this space. However, there's been a lot of home building that lumber companies have enjoyed. Current valuations are high. If there was a market setback, this space would be vulnerable. The BC fires have spiked the stock price, but the fires can eat into the supply areas.

Earnings recently were very positive.  Unfortunately lumber prices have recently collapsed.  It is a cyclical company, but is a very good one.  With the strength of the US and Canadian economies, he thinks this is one of the best in the sector, and would continue to hold it for the next year.

It's not the kind of company he invests in. It's a great Canadian resource play and has done well, but the issues are Trump's tariffs on Canadian lumber and disappointing U.S. housing starts.
