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.

(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.

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.

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)

(A Top Pick Aug 22/18, Up 10%) They also have the bakery side of the business where they have invested a lot into the business. A lot of it depends on L-T plus exposure to CHP.UN-T. He would highly recommend it at $100. They are the dominant player in the Canadian grocery business.

The holding company for Loblaw's and the Choice REIT. If we get inflation, then they will do well. We are seeing it now in the food chain. He likes it. At some point the bakery won't grow and then there is no point in holding it. (Analysts’ price target is $114.00)

They have been undergoing a fair amount of change. Their bakery business is a tiny part of their business but is getting the most focus when people look at them. They have been undergoing a dramatic shift over the last couple of years, rationalizing product lines and building new facilities. He thinks we will see an improvement in profitability. From time to time they have modest dividend increases. He would prefer it a little under $100. (Analysts’ price target is $113.83)

He's playing defense, expecting more volatility. It's really a holding company with businesses in real estate (Choice Properties REIT), the bakery and Loblaw. Very stable. This is a cheap way to play Loblaw, which has had a good run lately. Loblaw shareholders received shares of Weston and have been selling them. This has opened a 13% discount to its fair value. Price momentum is its only knock, but he sees a catch-up trade here. (Analysts’ price target is $110.59)
