They've been awfully impressive this last year. They have limited growth, being stuck in Canada. Good dividend. If he owned it, he'd hold. Other areas of the market have more upside. One you don't lose sleep over. They have capital to make some kind of acquisition.

Durable goods has had a boom. We are probably past the best point of that. Would be cautious on their YOY trend. This drives the momentum in the stock price. Faster money investors hop on the trend and leaves to push down the price. The dividend has improved and increased at a good pace. There could be an intersection where share prices fall and dividends increase. Start a position when this happens.

When Walmart arrived in Canada, he felt that CTC was untouchable. It's the go-to place for smaller Canadian communities. Their stores remained open during the lockdown. CTC is trading around $165 and is a solid hold. As the economy reopens, people will spend elsewhere, though. You can buy this on a $10-20 pullback. Aritzia is a better bet though.

It's one of the best survivors in retail. They held their own against Walmart. Great job diversifying into Sportscheck and Marks Work Warehouse. They have the goods that people want, so have benefitted from the pandemic. But the stock has recovered a lot. Trades at a 10x earning basis, so cheap. That said, there are better retailers, like ATD'B. CTC.A is well-diversified, though.

Hard to analyze. Retail broadly is going through a change. One of the few allowed to stay open during the pandemic, so demand was pulled forward, but may taper off in coming years. Can they rework their retail model? Hold it at this price, but not willing to put new money in at these levels.

He has never purchased this, even though watching it for along time. The recent price rebound may be getting ahead of itself again, he thinks. The company has good assets and strategy, but is fighting an uphill battle in how retail is changing. They have done a good job on the dividend yield given how mature the company is. Not what he is looking for now at this valuation.

It's tempting to buy it now when it's down, and its PE has been reasonable for a while. Most stores have been open, which helps them. But they face online competition. Retail is not his favourite sector, but CTC is managed well and should do well. A safe bet. But Mark's Work Warehouse has been affected, though online sales will partially offset that hit. CTC is not on his radar tough.

The company and the stock has suffered because people feel Rona, Lowes and Home Depot will trampled them. One of the things they have is great locations. They are located in places other big-box stores can't get in. They are also very competitive and they have great selections for new Canadians. They are well positioned to compete with others. The stores are individually managed so they have a lot of say what is on their shelves.

If you don't have good e-commerce, a store is treading water. But the bad news is already priced into the stock price. He prefers Leon's Furniture for buying the Brick and paying off most of that debt. Good return on capital and huge insider ownership.

They have a lot of oars in the water. Its valuation is cheap, though. Retail is full of landmines, like CTC's financing/lending arm. Yes, CTC has holes in its online strategies and is unable to migrate to newer markets.

In danger of some market erosion. Right now it's around 15x multiple. Maybe should be around 10 times, so it could go down 30% from where they are right now.

One of the better retailers in Canada. Big shift has come in. Everyone's playing catch up to Amazon and online sales. A great company, but the world changed around them. Not looking for bricks and mortar retail players on his team. A challenge for growth.

Not just retail, but they also have financial services and real estate. Well-managed and a good acquirer of assets like Mark's Work Warehouse with fine execution. This has underperformed the last six months due to weather, but they did buy a sportswear company for $1.1 billion. They'll do well with it. CT has increased its dividend.

Long term hold? Yes, 5-10 years, but be careful playing a consumer stock late in the cycle. He thinks we have 1-2 years before a recession. Watch the allocation in your portfolio.

They've shifted well from hard retailer to online, but all retail is very tough. He wants to see online growth here. It's in an uber-competitive space, especially online. He sees better retail stocks elsewhere, like Amazon.

The Amazon effect CTC reports on Thursday. Wait till then. As for Amazon, CTC has been quite resilient. Consumers need to touch items like cars and BBQ's and can't buy them online. CTC has done a good job of fusing together Mark's Work Warehouse and Sportchek. A terrific name.

This is one of the Canadian retailers that has done fairly well. Everybody is impacted by AMZN-Q but CTC-T less so. The difficulty is that that he does not see growth beyond 2-3%. He needs 10%. He would not say to sell it if you are into it.

Q4 doesn't look good for them, given the benign weather in Canada (tires and snow-removal and winter gear are big sellers for them). That said, he epxects a dividend increase as CTC continues to appease investors. This will muddle along.

It performs well in November and December and not in January. It will set up now for a good buying opportunity at the end of January into the end of April. We are at a base of support as we come into a second period of seasonal support.

Well-managed. It's likely impacted by Amazon (not cars). This is down because the entire market is. Valuation is merely okay, not cheap. Don't panic. This won't drop more. But other stocks have better upside this year than CTC.

(A Top Pick Jan 05/18, Down 14%) He thinks it is being impacted by Amazon. Their website relies on purchases from the local store -- a big disadvantage. He sees further competition coming in. It trades below a key moving average, which is cautionary.

Management has done a hack of a good job on the retail side in the face of companies like Wal-Mart and Dollarama. It does not trade at a crazy multiple. They made acquisitions that fit in. Their recent acquisition they paid a lot for. It is a different business. We may see the impact in the future.

Selloff is healthy. Could be just because it got too high. Good company that’s done well. Nothing on the chart that tells you not to own it. If you own it, don’t panic. Momentum is still upward. A good company, as well as a great trading stock.

Canadian retailing has been one of the weakest sectors on the TSX. Rising wages is one factor. CTC pays 12x 2019 earnings, so it's still reasiably valued. He's worried about the major acquisition of the skiwear company, Helly Hansen. This is different from Sportchek or Mark's Work Wearhouse. He wants to see how CTC absorbs the skiwear company first. Skiing is a different business for CTC, so he doesn't see the fit.
