A tricky one. He's torn. It checks most of his boxes, but not one: they hold a lot of debt. Their growth has been spectacular, but fueled by debt. He doesn't know the debt repayment details offhand. He prefers a stock with less debt. That said, the garbage business will be stable during this pandemic.

This stock has performed well over the past few years. Now the market is saying this is still an essential business. The challenge is not getting caught in thinking you have missed the bottom. There is nothing wrong buying in here. He is just focusing on health care and tech at the moment.

Three years ago, it merged with Progressive Waste Solutions to become a leader in waste collection. WCN has a strong balance sheet and low-cost disposal services. It's still a fragmented, local industry while WCN is a massive national company. (Analysts’ price target is $130.90)

It's done pretty well but waste is economically sensitive. A lot of it is linked to building waste, etc. Never wrong to take a profit, especially if we foresee a slowdown.

A very expensive stock. It's grown by acquisition with some organic growth. Too rich for him. There is some cyclicality, as during the Recession, with less garbage produced, and there's an environmental push for less garbage. Well-managed, though, and in a good business.

The chart looks great. Needs a plan for this stock. There is support in the down side, but would watch where it holds. If it holds, it should move up more aggressively.
