A company like this could come down towards the end of the year when there is tax loss selling. When they eliminated the dividend, he put it on his watch list. When he discovers a company, he does not buy into it for at least 6 months. When you see a takeover in the field, for example Tim Horton’s (THI-T) sometimes that means other takeovers in the field might follow. This one has started to mount his interests.

It is hard to follow this story as there isn’t any analyst coverage on it. Doesn’t look like things are going well. There is a bit of a coffee war going on between McDonalds, Starbucks and Tim Horton’s. Today’s move by the federal government, restricting foreign workers, could hurt the coffee people in particular. If you own, he would look to trying to get yourself out of it.

Likes the Timmy’s franchise better. The strength of this stock is not there as it has fallen below the ’08 levels. Prefers THI-T.

Same-store sales are falling, which is not a good thing in retail. They are adding stores to pay the capital up front and this is expensive. So they are growing that way but each store pays less revenue. Doesn’t know how you fix that. Dividend looks like it is well covered, right now but a slight change in revenues for company like this can lead to a much bigger change in profits. 8.6% dividend.

Not on his radar screen. Stock has been incredibly beaten up. Having a problem with their brand. Second Cup is not one of the natural brands that you think of in Canada. Have a lot of competition. Lots of headwinds. Yield is 9%. Paying out more in its dividend than it makes in earnings. If you own, he would suggest moving to another sector.

Last week earnings were reported rather rough. Stay away at this point. Likelihood of a dividend cut.

This is a type of equity that will be defensive in a downturn. Holding its market share relatively well. Not a fast grower but will hold in an economic downturn. Dividend of 8.5%. Not looking for much capital appreciation.

Good company and good dividend, which he thinks is sustainable. Transparency and accounting are not as good as he would like to see. If you own, he wouldn't worry about the 8.6% dividend.

Franchise coffee shops in Canada. Seem to be doing well. Spend some money on store renovations. His concern would be there competition with Starbucks (SBUX-Q), which has deeper pockets.

Historically things like coffee shops have done quite well in recessionary periods. Feels the dividend is safe. His favourite is Spot Coffee (SSP-X).

Most restaurant royalty trusts are going to become quite taxable in 2011. This one has reorganized to a more operating status as opposed to a pure royalty trust. Gives them a little more flexibility and could also make them a little less taxable versus some of their peers.

(Market Call Minute.) Would pass on this one. Small-cap name and the restaurant royalty trust future is quite difficult to see.

From a consumer's spin point of view, it is stuck in the middle. Not the Tim Horton low cost coffee or Starbucks higher costs. Could be under some sales pressure going forward.

This and Tim Hortons (THI-T) will profit from an economy that is going backwards, to some degree. A lot of the high dividend payers come out of very high multiples and cannot sustain their multiples.
