(A Top Pick Feb 04/21, Up 38.8%)Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly Our PAST TOP PICK with CIX is progressing well. We now recommend trailing up the stop (from $12.50) to $23.50 -- the previous upside objective. If triggered this would all but guarantee a investment return over 34%.

They acquire a lot of businesses, especially in the U.S. investment advsiors, and are shifting from mutual funds to private investment advisory. This will be a powerful platform. The stock has been languishing below $20 for a long time, especially in 2020. When markets go down, asset managers go down more, and rise more than markets rising. However, CI goes down, but not up. CIX has a bright future though; it pays a solid dividend. Will their legacy business, which has been declining, level out at some point? He keeps watching it.

He was stopped out. Their return metrics are deteriorating. They are in an industry with a lot of challenges. They have navigated these challenges well, however. He thinks perhaps this is a bit of a value trap as their top line has not really grown and they have made acquisitions. He prefers others.

Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly CIX is a Canadian financial asset management company who manages mutual and various hedge funds. It trades a just over 7x earnings, compared to a sector average of 14x. There has been a sizable increase in insider buying over the past three months. It pays a good dividend backed by a payout ratio of 30% of cash flow. We would buy this with a stop-loss at $12.50, looking to achieve $23.50 -- upside potential over 34%. Yield 4.12% (Analysts’ price target is $23.17)

He's on the fence. Strategically, now going in the right direction away from low-fee asset management. But they've been on a real spree of acquisitions. Wait and see if they get a return on investment dollars. A show-me story.

Wouldn't buy. On the surface, yield of 4.6% appears competitive. Cut the dividend by 50% in 2018. Strategically making the right moves by making acquisitions into high net worth asset management, which has better demographics and margins. But what's the return going to be? Earnings have flatlined. Value trap.

It's cheap and a pretty well run business, but the mutual fund business is not as good as it was 10-15 years ago. Fees in the financial services sector are under pressure. The long term challenges in the industry would keep him away from the stock.

A big Canadian mutual fund company. A go-go stock for many years and a fast-grower, but is now under pressure like the sector. Still produces a lot of fresh cash flow. It's in trading range of $18-23. Pays a nice dividend.

He's watching it closely. Disclosure: A colleague of his sits on their board. A good business. CI can transition from mutual funds into private wealth management. They have a good cost structure. At $17, they're buying back lots of stock, but using debt to do so. They suffered a huge correction last year. But he's closely watching this as a serious buy. 4.1% dividend.

(A Top Pick Aug 22/17, Down 26%) Pared back his holding. High 42% ROE, but the market doesn't see it as a growth stock; their Century acquisition was over-expensive. It's good that they're buying back shares. It's very cheap now, but has terrible price momentum. He needs to see a bottom with this stock.

Sold it around $21. Customers are moving from Mutual Funds to ETFs. This is affecting them. The fact that the Canadian Market hasn’t done so well it also affected them as they are not as global in nature. (Analysts’ price target is $24.88)
