It is in the middle of a takeover, where it has agreed to be taken over by a majority shareholder. Not all the shareholders are happy about this. It is being sold at cycle lows. At $16 per share today it was an 80% premium to where the shares traded the day before the offer. There may be some arbitrage value, if they can get $16.50-$17.00, but there is not much upside from here.

Lumber prices are trending down this year and we're closer to the bottom. This is also a seasonal stock with great Decembers-Januaries, so maybe buy in the fall. Home building remains decent in the U.S., too. Forestry is a tough space and highly cyclical.

OSB-T vs. CFP-T. Looking at a long term chart of lumber futures, we are getting back to levels from when the economic levels were much weaker. Individually he is not sure that the prices are washed out. There may be more downsides in the more economically sensitive names.

Forest stocks have really been taking a hit. You could probably open a position today, as sentiment and last couple of quarters have been negative. Indications that US lumber pricing and new home construction are starting to pick up. Lumber is at trough prices, so that's usually a good time to get in.

Back end of slowing US housing market. He owns Western Forest Products (WEF), which has high-end finishes, and selling into Asia, so demand on pricing is better; almost 4.5% dividend; small debt vs. cash. Whereas Canfor is cyclically linked, so you don't want to own it at this point in the cycle. Costs are up, so margins are squeezed. Wouldn't be looking at these levels.

West Fraser vs. Canfor He owns neither, as lumber prices are weak and not rebounding in the spring when they usually do. They're trading near book value. The upcoming quarter will be weak for lumber. Be cautious here, but start doing your homework on them.

This industry is tempting as it appears to be setting a bottom. It still looks like it is still heading lower. He needs to see a move above $16.50 before he would be interested.

It is doing well despite the problems around NAFTA and WTO. The millennials are getting into the housing market and that is a long trend, which this company benefits from. The US will need the lumber for all the houses needed. He is positive on forest products stocks.

He likes this as a company, but as long as we are in this interminable fight over softwood lumber duties, he wouldn’t go anywhere near any of these stocks. Once this dispute is resolved, and it will be eventually, this could very well be a Buy.

Valuation is very cheap. Lumber is a hugely contentious issue between Canada and the US, which is one of the problems this industry faces. Also, household formations have changed and many generations are just opting to live in condos, etc. There are under 1 million units currently in the US versus 1.4 million historically. He doesn’t think this is going to pick up meaningfully. Any little uptick will be positive for it.

Ranks a bit outside of his fundamental and technical screening. The stock is yo-yoing which has to do with housing starts and new home sales.

His style of investing usually leads him away from resource focused stocks, because they are cyclical and his requirement that they have a cash ROE greater than 20% over the last 3 years. However, this company has come through his screen and their cash ROE is just shy of 21%, so if he were to own one, this would be it.

Despite a strong US housing market, overseas is not doing that well. There are a lot of people that have been caught holding the stock, and will start selling above $20 as soon as the price recovers. The stock is under pressure.
