He has a big position. Very well managed. It is News Papers so they are under pressure for advertising revenues. The dividend is very sustainable now. Yield is 12% and they should be able to sustain that for years.

Considers it a big community news paper. Won many awards for content. Older readers. Been accumulating shares for years. Technology is having an impact but their subscriptions are stable. Dividend is very high and very safe. Management has managed the company well. One of his biggest holdings.

The holding company for the Winnipeg Free Press. None of the newspaper companies are a good place to be, due to the problems of shifting from paper to digital.

Cyclical company, pure value stock. Declining business. Risky, nice dividend that is probably ok. Yield under 14% is signaling a cut. It might be priced in, however.

Wouldn’t go near this one. Newspaper business is very challenging. Successful ones will start to earn digital revenues and will probably be okay. The smaller ones readership is getting old and probably won’t go online to read them. 15% dividend tells you there is a lot of risk..

Winnipeg free press, dominant paper. Like all newspapers went south, advertising vaporized and stock came down, since recovered. Cut its distribution once or twice. Expected when they convert they will cut distribution again. Small cap and thinly traded.

The holding company for Winnipeg Free Press, Brandon and other papers. Winnipeg right now is the best newspaper market in the country and the Free Press is probably the best performing intercity newspaper, gaining circulation and advertising. 10% yield. Once it is not an income trust, it will probably maintain the same payout.

Like because it’s a boring stock. An income trust. Based in Winnipeg, which is the best newspaper market in Canada. The payout is conservative, yields about 10.75%. The only independent big market newspaper left in Canada, likely to be bought around $15-16

Had a fairly decent run and has come back and little bit on the back of a lot of M&A activity. M&A and consolidation in the space will continue. This is trading near fair valuation but has limited downside.

Distribution yield is about 14%. If you hold for the 4 years of free taxation, you’ll get half of your money back. One of the only major newspapers not controlled by the chains. Will do well operationally. A takeover stock.
