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.

They have been competing against Amazon, Walmart, Costco. It is a great brand. They can compete with all of their brands. Still have to sharpen your game to continue to compete against Amazon.

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.

Performed well, but has gone sideways. Fantastic locations have let them do well in the past. Amazon is a problem. Competition is going to get tougher. Take profits and put the money elsewhere where there’s potential for growth, not in retail.

They had good quarters until last quarter which was disappointing. They have a large financial subsidiary. Not a good place to be if the yield curve is inverting. Not her favorite name.

It is not vulnerable to the WMT-Ns or AMZN-Qs of the world. The multiple has always been reasonable. However they announced a big acquisition in the fashion industry. They paid a hefty price. This diversification strategy might divert them quite a bit so he does not hold it.

He thinks the fact that they spent a billion dollars on the acquisition of a ski wear brand was a sign of desperation. How do you compete against Amazon (AMZN-Q)? The next 10 years won’t look like the past ten years for this company.

This is the voting stock. It is more thinly traded and appears to be less expensive per share so it might be the stock someone would buy now if they were going to own shares.

One of the well kept secrets that you don’t often hear is regarding their acquisition that they got a lot of grief for. They have a long history of incorporating brands, however. (Analysts’ target: $186.29).

The Canadian success story in retail. It's recently had a small setback. Its multiples are expensive. It can't sustain its rate of recent growth. It's vulnerable on the downside. Also, retail is changing so much nowadays. At least Cdn. Tire can hold its own in Canada.
