A little more expensive than WFG and less ROE. Has had quite a good run but would stick to WFG or Interfor. Would sell this for other larger players.

An exciting time in home builders. Under made homes for several years in the US. A powerful rally. Likes that WFG is now a combined entity. WEF is a small cap and is more whippy. Both are good.

The U.S. housing boom has fuelled lumber prices and WEF, a strong tailwind. These prices will remain strong for a few years as Asian economies also pick up. Doesn't know WEF that well.

He considers it a buy still today. It has not recovered as much as the other three. It is because it is a specialty lumber products company. The price of lumber has been on a tear this year. The strike is no longer in place but it is trading lower than it was then. There has not been a single share sold by insiders this year. The risk/reward ratio looks quite attractive.

Has owned it in the past. He sold it in Feb/March when all that disruption happened and he didn't know what would happen (Covid). In the past 6 months, so much happened and he missed WEF popping up. He regrets selling this. He's now watching this. Can't say yet how US tariffs rolling off will effect this; he will study this. Likes this company and management. Should do well.

They just announced third quarter results. Earnings are second highest since 2018 when the stock was $2. They do specialty lumber and they are diversified, so they move more gently. The valuation is attractive. The dividend should come back.

Disappointing over the last couple of years. Doesn't see prospects to improve. Will remain under pressure. Be careful with this investment. If you can't make it during the boom days, you won't be able to make it during the challenging times.

(A Top Pick Jun 14/19, Down 23%) They were stopped out of it and they allocated more to health and tech. Now lumber prices have shot up. He now expects a housing boom out of the pandemic.

He sold it in May. He was worried about WEF's viability. This was the wrong decision. WEF products demand has rebounded strongly that he didn't expect. WEF cut the dividend to zero. The long strike they had then the pandemic coloured his decision to sell.

Insiders were buying during their strike last year, then again this March. It is still attractive. This company has had a very consistent track record in terms of profitability. It trades at a discount. (Analysts’ price target is $1.05)

Canada's biggest lumber producer in the west coast. Consistently profitable, but it got tangled in an 8-month strike last year. When that ended, the stock started to rise in February until the virus hit. There's lots of insider buying, which triggered him to buy. WEF trades at 0.6x book value, a third of 2014-18 levels, so this could bounce back 300%. (Analysts’ price target is $1.02)

(A Top Pick Feb 27/19, Down 34%) A smaller position for them. He was hoping housing and trade would improve. Unfortunately their workers went on strike for 7 months. The shares are poised to go higher with bullish US housing stats. Their exports to Asia as significant so he would be careful and watch this one. There is also some risk the dividend could be cut.

The deep cyclical are the place you want to put some money. It is so beaten down. It could fall another 50% but once we get CoVid19 under control, these deep cyclicals could have 300-500% gains. This is where the value is in this market but you need patience. He has never seen an opportunity like this in his career.

7.4% dividend and it is not safe--a 540% payout ratio. Lumber prices seem to have bottomed this year and should rise. Will WEF maintain the dividend? Free cash flow is negative. 4 cents of earnings in 2020, rising to 11 cents in 2021 is his outlook. Ranks near the bottom for him.
