They've hit one obstacle after another and are in a business that should be doing much better. They do more construction and less engineering vs. its peers. This is way oversold. This is a higher-risk, higher-reward holding. This could pay off down the road.

He once owned this. Sit tight with it. He owns Aecon instead. He likes SOX, though, and talks to the CEO. A well-run business. Doesn't know why the dividend was cut.

A past top pick. The problem with construction companies is that they're much more volatile than the engineering ones. SOX is more construction, less engineering, and more dependent on the Alberta economy. It has a lot of upside from here, but it's riskier than peers Aecon, Stantec and SNC Lavalin.

It has been a top pick in the past.  It is a higher risk than a company that is both construction AND engineering.  They have been figured as an Alberta-centric company but they have diversified somewhat.  If we see any infrastructure dollars going to work, this company is likely to get them.

December 13, 2017

The company has not only created some stability within operations, but also have the potential of improving operations going forward. When they converted from the old Churchill Corp. they took on a lot of contracts that were fixed price that went over budget, making it a real drag. Since then, they’ve diversified into other markets. They have more presence in other provinces than just Alberta. If there is going to be more spending in electrical work in buildings, and infrastructure to some extent, this company should still have a bit more room to run. If you own, he would take some profits and limit this to a smaller portion of your portfolio.

They were losing money a few years ago because of fixed price contracts. Now they have diversified into more electrical, construction and buildings. Mostly an Alberta dominant company and they had a lot of exposure to gas & oil which hasn’t helped them. It’s a higher risk/reward situation but it could go up significantly if the infrastructure spending gets off the ground.

This has had its share of difficulties over the years, with some fixed price contracts that went overpriced. There was also a slowdown in energy industry, and they were largely exposed to Alberta at the time. They’ve made attempts to diversify. With the proposed spending going forward on infrastructure, their industrial segment should pick up. Believes this still has significant upside.

PAST TOP PICK

(A Top Pick July 15/16. Down 17%.) In this infrastructure environment, he thinks it will do okay eventually. They have diversified their business and are not as Western dependent as they were. As money gets allocated to more building and infrastructure projects, this will do better than it has.

He is a long-suffering shareholder of this. He keeps waiting for things to go right for them. They always seem to be just on the cusp of things turning around and going right, and believes they will. Doesn’t feel the dividend is under any immediate jeopardy, but if conditions continue as they did last year, particularly in Alberta, the dividend could be affected. With all the spending that’s been forecast in the Alberta budget, he believes they will get their share, which would make them highly leveraged to a recovery. Feels it is worth far more than what it is trading at.

February 1, 2017

(A Top Pick Jan 7/16. Up 8.19%.) This has been a troubled company. They ran into some contracts that went over budget. Largely exposed to energy, but are also very well exposed to infrastructure and mining. Made an acquisition a couple of years ago, which in the next quarter there might be a possibility of a write down on it. We are beginning to see potential signs of a turnaround. At these levels, he would be buying.

This ran into significant trouble and were in a lot of fixed-price contracts that went over costs. They have had to totally restructure the company. Also, they are primarily a Western exposed company, and more on the construction side rather than engineering in the equation. Feels they have been overlooked. If there is going to be any increase in infrastructure spending, particularly out west, this is certainly one of the companies that will benefit. Relative to the group, it looks very inexpensive, but it is a much higher risk/reward than some of the others.

This is sort of a “go to” construction company, which is unfortunately situated in Alberta. Every quarter when you are expecting things to look like they are improving, they seem to run into 1 or 2 problems somewhere, and this quarter is no different. There were some large contracts they were working on, that ran into cost overruns and delays. Thinks they are going to get its share of infrastructure spending once that gets started, which is probably a couple of years out. This could easily double from here.

Not one he follows or would own right now. This provides construction services to Western Canada with schools, hospitals, sports arenas, high-rises, etc. It also has exposure to the energy business. Even if energy prices have something of a rebound, the suppliers are going to lag considerably. If you are looking for a play on energy and Western growth, he would look at the commodity, producers and suppliers further down the chain.

It has been really beset, particularly lately, by the problems in Alberta. It was affected by the wildfires around Fort McMurray. In the last number of years, they have just seemed to go from one problem to another. However, he still believes this company can survive the current environment and prosper. They will be a beneficiary for some of the infrastructure spending that is going to take place.

A high dividend, so you might want to be careful here. Some of the contracts are a little choppy. He likes the company, but there are some issues. 7.5% dividend yield.
