There are better growth names out there as they are limited to the Canadian consumer market only. They have an advantage on larger garden items over Amazon for savings in shipping, but it is not enough to entice her.

It's a consumer discretionary stock. Canadian consumption is up 7.7% the last quarter and is hitting a 20-year high. However, CTC is in a steady downtrend. Around $142 is resistance, a problem. His indicators are pointing down on this stock. There's also a lot of overhead supply, too. There must be something fundamental affecting this stock.

It has come down a bit and so might be a buy. They have done a tremendous job growing the business over the years in the face of intense competition. Management does not see a slowdown. They made an acquisition of a fashion business but there are some synergies. It is not expensive but you need to be aware of some of the risks.

China impacts? A neutral valuation for him. Trades at 14 times earnings. Lots of room to improve the yield going forward. Just not compelling right now. Issues with China may result in slightly higher prices. (Analysts’ price target is $170.31)

(A Top Pick May 17/18, Down 8%) The HellyHansen acquisition was thought too expensive by the street. Despite their past history of incorporating brands well, he is not concerned it has taken a while to get going. He will continue to hold it.

She doesn't buy Canadian retail, because the Canadian consumer isn't strong now. Also, online commerce is competing more.

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.
