Primarily held by retail investors. One of his largest short positions. 60% of revenues come from servicing AT&T towers. Another business is related to airlines. He is not excited about either one. Contacts are coming up for renewal in September and they are not profitable. He calls this an absolute short because he thinks it will go down regardless of whether the market goes up or down. Does not think the dividend is safe.

He likes this name. Its 2013 payout ratio is very high, but on his 2014 assumed numbers, from them turning around their West Tower asset. If they can achieve 4.5% margins in 2014 on that asset and 7% in 2015, he models a 55% 2015 payout ratio. If that’s the case, the 9.7% dividend is fine. He also sees it trading at a very fair value of 8.7X 2015 right now.

(Market Call Minute.) He would like to see how things shape up with AT&T. Their West Tower division has been having some troubles.

Held in the past. Exited when they had issues around the cell tower company and that issue has been overhanging them for some time. Dividend is safe. As soon as numbers improve he would be in.

He no longer covers this. Something like a Mosaic Capital (M-X) in that they buy businesses and leave management in place and just get the dividend and do capital allocation. Started off in the airline space doing ambulatory airlines, basically up north doing evacuations. A good business because government pays you, pays well and pays on time. They took the cash and made other acquisitions and some of them have not worked out that well. That’s the risk with these things. This one is a “wait and see” for him.

Are in 2 segments. 1) Specialized aviation with the government being their largest customer and 2) manufacturing. Just announced a $500 million contract for cell towers with AT&T over 3 years with one of their recent acquisitions in the US. One of the best managed companies in Canada. Dividend yield of 6.6% and an 80% payout ratio. Looking for $30 next year.

(Top Pick Nov 5/10, Up 10.56%) Formerly an income trust. Strong niche in their airline business that serves the far north. The Gov’t is their customer. Strong management, low payout ratio and good yield. They are also a specialty in manufacturing.

Acquires interest in stock companies (?). Would have investments in publicly traded companies like TSE. Yield of about 10% is a concern, as they are paying out about 115% of earnings. Ranks high in his dividend strategy but doesn’t pass because both earnings and cash flow growth are negative.
