This has been a phenomenal story. The most important thing is free cash and what the companies do with it. This company is diversifying by getting into networking, data storage, and into other markets. Rogers (RCI.B-T) owns 32% of them and he doesn’t think it is properly reflected in Rogers’ stock price. He would buy more if this sold off.

(Top Pick Apr 12/13, Up 41.29%) Was undervalued. They were integrating new assets they purchased. Margins were getting a little more robust. He got out as they reached a target.

Likes cable companies. But this is a different model with a lower yield. They spent their free cash flow outside of Canada with Acquisitions. Their purchase in the US has done very well.

We are now back to the highs of 2012 and the market is starting to struggle a little bit. Not a fantastic entry point for the stock. Doesn’t think there is breakout potential. If we got a pullback in 2014 and we find support at last year’s lows, then it might be an entry point.

Generally he is fairly positive on the Canadian cable space but really doesn’t like this company that well. Have made a number of strategic acquisitions that have turned out to be big problems. Would prefer Rogers (RCI.B-T) if it got 4%-5% cheaper.

(Market Call Minute) stable cable play. Nothing fancy but core earnings 8-11% year in and year out.

Likes the cable space, not so much the cable business but the higher-margin stuff that they do on the side. Recently made 2 acquisitions in the US. Can see $50 in 12 months. Dividend yield of 2.34%.

Cable operator in Ontario and Québec. Has been cheap for a long time. Just did a US cable company acquisition. Had a checkered past with acquisitions. Typically trades at 1.5%-0.5% discount to the group to EBITDA and is currently at the bottom end. Looks like there is some low hanging fruit on their US acquisition. Expects to generate 11% free cash flow over the next few years. 2.44% yield.

There are 2 things with cable companies. They are always run by families and they don’t always have other shareholders interests at heart. Also, more people are not watching TV, but are using iPads or laptops. Not fond of the space.

It has been speculated as a potential takeover by Rogers. CCA has stretched their balance sheet now with their latest acquisition. This is a name he would be cautious about and would prefer BCE or maybe Rogers as well as one of his Top Picks.

Broke down about the $50 mark. Several days in series going down. You have to sell this right now. Could easily go down to $1.93. Entry point may be at $45.00
