They grow by acquisition and will continue to. He's not excited that they want to get into groceries, but he gives managers the benefit of the doubt. It's a very stable business. Travel will soon pick up and benefit ATD. He likes the stock long term and doesn't worry about their short term deals (or non deals, like Carrefour).

(A Top Pick Apr 09/20, Up 17%) He has owned it for a number of years. They are a good consolidator. It has been perking up a little in the last few weeks. There are probably some short term headwinds for them with comparisons to last year as a lot of stores were closed and traffic got diverted to dollar stores, convenience stores and corner stores. They had a windfall on gasoline margins. Oil prices fell swiftly but gas prices did not, as is usual. Their fuel margins will be a headwind for the next couple of quarters. He thinks they will get a strategic acquisition completed this year. They are buying back their own shares, which is rare. They think they are undervalued.

It doesn't pass his ESG screenings, since they sell a lot of tobacco. This business grew by acquisition and little organic growth. You gotta wonder when cars go all electric way into the future, so their service stations may have to reinvent themselves. Investors had some doubts when they tried to buy France's Carrefour supermarkets.

A good acquirer, making some good ones in recent years. They will continue to buy but it's getting more difficult because ATD itself is so big now that a purchase makes less impact than before. They tried and failed to pick up France's Carrefour recently. There's some organic growth in existing operations but there's better growth in other names.

Entry point now? The price has always been rich for him. They buy companies to grow, though recently this drive has been tempered. The recovery will boost travel and benefit ATD. ATD wants to increase the merchandise footprint in their stores and will adapt to e-cars over time. It's still pricey for him, but better than a year ago.

The poster-child for consolidators. Leading convenience store operator in Canada, US and Europe. There is an expansion opportunity with new acquisitions in Hong Kong. The multi-voting shares of the partners will expire at the end of this year, and transformational change may happen.

(A Top Pick Feb 07/20, Down 15%) People are travelling less and buying less gas. The additional items purchased in-store after filling up is a major component of their business. Covid turnaround play and you should see higher revenues once the virus fades away. Maybe in a year or two, the government may be more receptive to the bid for Carrefour if the chain is struggling. He thinks the move is soundly based on their previous acquisition and operation strategies.

Some of the best capital allocators in Canada. Failed acquisition attempt in France made stock sell off, and those fears are still swirling. Ultimately, you have to give management the benefit of the doubt. Long-term, a reasonable investment as they execute on strategy. Still one of the best performing TSX stocks over the last decade.

Failed French acquisition. Still looking for acquisitions. Have to make bigger ones to move the needle. Until then, will grow organically, but slowly until economy opens up. Exceptionally cheap at 13x earnings. Technically oversold, so a good time to buy. He owns it in TFSAs.

It sold off hard when it was revealed they were looking at a potential merger in France. It suggested they were running out of runway for acquisitions. EV vehicles are starting to increase from 1 to 2%. Rumors of this area were a good reason to buy it, but he has hesitations on it beyond $45.

Has long owned this. It recently dropped 10-15% when it announced it was taking over Carrefour in France (since failed). He added shares on that dip. ATD grows through acquisition, so why are investors surprised with the recent attempt? The big Carrefour attempt spooked people, but shouldn't have. Doesn't see this as a negative. (Analysts’ price target is $48.00)
