George Weston Ltd.

Likes it for primarily being Loblaws and Choice Properties which has a solid tenant base including Shoppers Drug Mart. Has reasonable growth prospects. The only caveat is politicians complaining about high food prices, but it doesn't bother him. The grocers face costs pressures from energy costs and higher wages.

(A Top Pick May 10/22, Up 19%)

It owns some choice properties including industrial ones. It trades like a staple and is still below its NAV. If you own you could trim half.

Low risk. WN owns the Loblaw and Shoppers Drug Mart real estate and accounts for half their earnings. A dull and boring consumer staples business. Trades at a 12% discount to its holdings in Loblaw and Choice REIT. They just raised their dividend by 10% today, though it isn't huge. They just sold their baked-goods business and sit on $3.1 billion. The family will buy a lot more shares in coming years. A well-run company. He sees a 10% rise in the share price.

If you own this, you've done very well and will continue to. Inflation will push up prices of basic items. Weston dominates in grocery stores in Canada, so their sales and margins will rise. It's had a good run. The trend in consumer staples will see more pricing power.

Interesting at these levels. They mostly own Loblaw, which is doing very well. Weston just sold their bakery business. Weston is effectively a holding company for the Weston family. Owning either Loblaw or Weston is good, and Weston is trading around 13x earnings and pays a 2% dividend. He owns no food stocks--it's always been a difficult business.

It's had a good run. Was his top pick in March 2020. IN recent quarters, they've been simplying their structure. What's held their valuation was Weston Foods, which they are divesting. So, the company will focus on Loblaw and Choice Properties. Higher costs have impacted the former during the pandemic. But investments in home delivery have done well. He likes consumer staples now.

Operating extremely well. Hitting new highs. Tailwinds could last a while. Defensive. Coming transition from consumer staples to small caps will reduce WN's price momentum. Hold, wait for a pullback or consolidation.

George Weston Ltd.

He loves Loblaw, owned by WN. Even with the bakery sale, it will still trade at a discount. Nothing wrong with WN, but he'd rather own Loblaw, which makes up about 60% of WN's value.

PAST TOP PICK
George Weston Ltd.
(A Top Pick Mar 17/20, Up 5%) About 64% of its NAV is in Loblaw, and the grocers have done well in the pandemic, but they also invested a lot in home delivery and safety, so that has limited gains. Over 30% of WN is Choice Properties, and that's been steady. Weston Foods segment should pick up again and do very well. Definitely buy and hold.

WN-T vs. L-T This sector is just not loved right now. Investors just aren't looking at these kinds of stocks right now. Their costs have been moving up but people aren't eating more. Their sweet spot is late April until late May. L-T could be okay so he would hold on to it.

DON'T BUY
George Weston Ltd.

WN vs. L A bit like splitting hairs. Weston controls Loblaw. When you buy Weston, you get 95% Loblaw and 5% bakery. A great business. A buy and hold through the cycles. If you get a rip roaring cyclical market, it will probably lag. High single digit or low double digit return. He doesn't like the bakery, so Loblaw gets the nod.

Owns Loblaw and real estate. This will track how Loblaw is doing. Supermarkets soared during the spring lockdown and will thrive during more lockdowns unfortunately. He prefers Kroger (American), because of its online and home delivery. It's okay to hold onto Weston. He's ambivalent.

(A Top Pick Jun 17/19, Down 2%) It has done very well considering the environment. They are being hurt most in the food services business. All of the grocery chains have been doing very well during the COVID crisis.

TOP PICK
George Weston Ltd.

One of the few companies with good newss--people are cleaning out the shelves at Loblaw (and other supermarkets). Shoppers will stay open early for seniors. During worry about the Choice REIT not getting its rent from Loblaw. After a few years of turning around, Weston is improving and coming out with better sales. (Analysts’ price target is $124.00)
