Well-run. Best-in-class cash flow. Waste collection is still a fragmented space which will continue to consolidate. This space correlates to gas prices, to some degree. Likes WCN.

A little over priced. He has a target price of less than $90, so he is cautious. He would prefer a pullback to $80 to add to any holding.

This selloff in the fall was a correction and not a transition. The US economy is in good shape. This one is in a good industry. It is trading at a new relative high. If you believe we have a soft landing this year, you want to own things focused on the US domestic economy.

One of his favourites. Not cheap. Had a great year. Defensible business model. Tremendous moat, so they can trade at a higher multiple, which they will continue to execute on. Will continue to justify the multiple. There will be new competitors, but doesn't think this will impair its margins or growth profile.

He's long owned this. A commodity (garbage) business, but they know how to run a business and they also own their landfills. Generates a lot of fresh cash flow; dividend increases; and share buybacks. A U.S. company on the TSX, so you don't worry about exchange rate. A little pricey now, but buy on a pullback.

It has been a great stock for him.  It trades at a bit of a premium to some of the peers in the US because there aren't a lot of quality industrials in Canada.  It is quite a recession resistant business.  No need to crystallize your gains.

This has been a freight train hitting new highs.  After decades of consolidation economies of scale have been reached.  Valuation is way too rich for him.  It is a good business but you have to buy it right.

If you own this, he would start to play with the house money, maybe give half of it back. At this stage, it is really anybody's guess as to what it is going to do. He likes the volume and the run it’s had, but where does it stop. You should reward yourself and take a little bit off the table.

Wait for a pullback or buy today? Doesn’t expect less garbage in the future, but will be producing more. This company has pretty good pricing power and the waste services industry is still extremely fragmented in the US. A good opportunity here.

The waste business is economically sensitive. A lot of customers are commercial. As the economy strengthens, you produce more waste. This is a play on a strengthening economy, which is one of the reasons you would want to own this. It has a very interesting geographic footprint in parts of the US that are growing. Technically it is sound.

Has been a pretty hot stock lately. Expensively priced. Growth by acquisition, and a yield, but not a really high one. You take that combination, but unless you can really buy it well, or you already hold it, he would look for a cheaper entry point. He would look in the low $80s before he would be an interested buyer.

An idea based upon a pickup on global growth, and that the US is going to continue showing improvement. They acquired a Canadian company, Progressive Waste Solutions, and are much bigger. They are not done yet. They want to continue to consolidate the industry, which is still extremely fragmented. Not a cheap stock, but has pulled off a little bit here. Dividend yield of 0.8%. (Analysts’ price target is $96.)

Being taken over by a US company. The 2 of them are a pretty good match, and there will be some cost savings in the merger. It will make them a very important player in solid waste management all over North America. Trading close to a 52 week high as a result, but he thinks there is more upside potential post merger.

In the process of merging with Waste Connections (WCN-N). This has been a growth by acquisition story. Had some issues getting costs down and getting margins to the industry’s best levels. Stock price has been reasonably depressed, but with this merger they will have a much better track record. There is a lot of hope and there is probably good upside from here.
