They have done a really good job of hitting every point of patient movement: Accessibility and transportation. He really likes it. They made some big acquisitions recently and are in the consolidation period while they digest them. You can average into it. It is a premium company.

Lifts in a lot of accessible vehicles and homes. There is a log runway to make acquisitions. They have not proven they can make acquisitions globally, so he does not own it today.

This has been a very good performer for them. He met with management about two weeks ago. The multiple is not cheap, but is still good value and the margins are very good. They may make some additional acquisitions and he likes the management team. Their products fit well with the changing demographics.

Had sold his holdings based on valuation, and then the stock continued to go up. A great company and thinks they are going to continue to do very well. They have the wind at their back from a demographic standpoint, as they continue to make lifts and mobility devices for older people. Probably has a long runway. He would wait for an opportunity to buy on a pullback.

Involved in mobility products and services. As people age and mobility becomes restricted, they have the equipment such as scooters, lifts, etc. Has an existing franchise and product line, and are using their free cash flow to be acquirers. Recently acquired an Australian company. However, it’s expensive right now, so wait for a pullback. A well-run company.

One of his favourite companies. They do elevator lifts. They purchased a US company which does products for things like mattresses for people with access ability issues. It was a pretty big company they purchased and there is going to be a lot of cross-selling potential between the 2. Valuation is high, but longer-term, they are in a good space. They make smart acquisitions and there is good insider ownership. Also pays a nice little dividend. Right now, it is kind of hitting overbought ranges so he wouldn't go in on a full position, but would average in.

Owns a big portion of this, and really likes management. The CEO owns 30%-40% of the company. They continue to grow earnings fairly well. Have made some strategic acquisitions where there was quite a bit of synergy. It’s currently trading at an all-time high. Demographics are playing into what they do. Continues growing earnings and their top line.

One of his favourite companies. They do accessibility solutions, such as adapted vehicles, elevator lifts, chairlifts, etc. Acquired Span America about a year ago which does cushions and beds, so the company now has pretty much an end-to-end offering for people with accessibility issues. There is a lot more torque with every sale they have. There are also cross-selling opportunities. Expect they will continue making international acquisitions.

One of his biggest positions. They have done well in terms of growing their business organically. They make mobility aids. They acquired a company in the US that makes mattresses for institutions. Management have done a good job of growing SIS-T organically, but now are making a very opportune acquisition in the US. The stock is not cheap, but the demographics are blowing a huge tailwind into it.

This helps with wheelchair assess ability, and things like that. A very demographically advantaged business for the next several years. It seems to be quite well-run and has insider ownership. Certainly seems like it is worth owning.

(A Top Pick March 3/16. Up 152%.) Stair lifts and elevator lifts, as well as van conversions to help people with disabilities get into their vehicles. Did an acquisition of the van conversion business, which almost doubled their business. An expensive company, but also one of the better companies on the TSX. They have a consistent demand coming from the baby boomer demographic. While it looks expensive today, they could do an acquisition tomorrow and it would look pretty cheap again.

Very well-managed. The stock is a little pricey, but you are paying for the scarcity value.

Manufactures lifts, etc. for homes for people with disabilities. Has traded sideways for a while, but earnings have been very strong, and the demographics are great. Thinks they are looking to make acquisitions and put them together with what they already have, creating synergies to increase margins. Feels the margin profile is going to go up over the next couple of years. Not extremely cheap, but this is because they have been able to grow earnings rapidly over the last couple of years.

A very interesting little Canadian company out of Montréal. Has done a great job of growing their business. They provide chairlifts for old and disabled people in homes, and small elevators for residences. Have been growing nicely over the last several years. He likes the business longer-term, but the stock has had one heck of a run, and the stock is pretty expensive. If you own the stock, he would be trimming, if not Selling it.

This has been a phenomenal company and continues to grow. Demographics are in their favour, and there is tons of room for it to continue to do well longer-term. Valuation has always been up on this, trading at about 15X EBITDA. It is never cheap, but that is often the case with these companies that continue to grow. He wouldn’t be surprised if they continue to grow organically as well as with acquisitions.
