PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Jun 30/21, Up 12%) He trimmed a lot of his shares recently. It's a turnaround story, having brought in new managers doing a good job. He's seen many companies in auto supplies run into supply chain shortages--demand is there, but not supply, so this is a near-term risk. Long term still looks good.

TOP PICK
Distributes automotive parts and industrial paint. Suffered during pandemic. Will benefit from increased driving post-pandemic. New CEO is well respected, paid down debt. Cheap valuation. A good turnaround play. No dividend. (Analysts’ price target is $17.80)

PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Dec 20/18, Down 14%) He sold at just around $13. The largest auto parts distributor in Canada. The company fired their CEO and announced a strategic review and nothing has happened since. They have done nothing to reorganize. He would not touch it.

PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Sep 25/18, Down 52%) It is an auto parts wholesaler in Canada and Britain and an auto paint distributor in the US, where they are having some problems. They were to do a strategic review but they have not done it yet. He moved on.

COMMENT
Amazon is not the problem. Going to review selling off businesses, and look for a new CEO. But they haven't commented on these issues, so market assumes nothing good will happen, and so the stock went down.

PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Feb 16/18, Down 26%) They sell replacement parts wholesale to garages and own paint finishing shops. Management had made great promises over the past year which did not materialize. Now the new CEO is doing a strategic evaluation of the business and he thinks this may result in the divestment of the paint division. He thinks it is a good buy here as it trades below book value. The stock has not made new lows, so he thinks investors are starting to bring support. He still owns it and likes it.

TOP PICK
Previous management lied to shareholders about how well they were doing and was thrown out. The September quarter was a good quarter. They are in the businesses of Canadian aftermarket auto parts, US paint finishing and UK aftermarket auto parts. He thinks they will sell their US paint finishing business. (Analysts’ price target is $25.83)
wholesale distributors
TOP PICK

A distributor of automotive parts in Canada and in the UK and a US-based paint finishing shop. He bought this in February. It has not done well for him. It has made three bad earns announcements in a row. Last week they announced that the quarter would not be good. They also announced that the CEO was gone, which he sees as good because that CEO would over-promise and under-deliver. Finally, they announced a strategic review of the company, which he believes will lead to sale of one of its businesses, probably the paint finishing business, and this will unlock good value. Yield 1.7%. (Analysts’ price target is $25.64)

COMMENT

This company grew by rolling up paint suppliers in the US in the auto-finishing business, much like Boyd Automotive except it is a bit upstream, actually supplying the paint in to the shops. The company did well for a while but after they had acquired a big chunk of the industry, their pricing got high. Since then, earnings have been disappointing, their Canadian exposure has been tough with the economy slowing down, and the stock sold off. In addition, the automated driving support features will lead to fewer collisions and hurt the repair business over the longer term. Over the short term, investors could nibble at the stock at this price and then sell it on a bounce. The stock dropped today after the CEO departed abruptly and the company cut its forecast.

DON'T BUY

They have looked at in the past, but are not owners. They released weak quarterly earnings and thinks it may take time for the value to be there. He would like to see a couple of good quarterly earnings reports first.

TOP PICK

Automobile parts wholesaler. Biggest in the US and Canada. In the US they are the biggest distributor of paint to body shops. The stock hurt because it had a bad quarter providing a good buying opportunity. Yield if 1.7% (Analysts’ price target is $30.33)

TOP PICK

He bought this in the last week. It is in auto parts distribution in the US and UK. The stock has been hurt by Amazon and they acquired a UK distributor which impacted their debt. Going forward things look good. Yield 1.4% (Analysts’ price target is $32.67)

wholesale distributors
DON'T BUY

AutoCanada (ACQ-T) or Uni-Select (UNS-T)? She used to own this, but sold it. They made an acquisition in the UK, which didn't seem to have any synergies with anything else. You want to wait at least a quarter or 2 to see what the UK acquisition does for them. At this point in the cycle, you probably don't need to be anywhere near the car cycle. It's too late in the cycle.

SELL ON STRENGTH

Chart shows it had a nice run up from 2015 to the end of 2016, but is now leveling off. The chart right now is neutral and is in a bit of a trading range here. There is also some volatility. If it rallies, he would take some off the table. Dividend yield of 1.3%.

PAST TOP PICK

(A Top Pick April 11/16. Up 9%.) A really well run business. It has auto parts distribution in Canada and a paint distribution business in the US, where they are the dominant player, distributing paint to auto body shops. They are trying to grow through acquisition which is a good strategy for them. He was a little concerned with the last quarter, so sold his position.
