(A Top Pick Jul 27/17, Down 7%) Down as they face growing competition. So, they're re-positioning and spending to diversify their business. Generates high ROE and is well-run. The CEO holds a lot of stock, which is big positive.

HOLD
It is a leasing company. It pays a good dividend and he respects management. It could be a good takeover target in the future. It has a good valuation today. Yield 7.3%

DON'T BUY

They are involved in small equipment leasing, which historically has correlated with auto leasing. He is negative on the prospects for auto leasing and is concerned about the prospects for Chesswood’s funding sources. The dividend is high but the payout ratio is around 50% so he thinks the dividend is reasonably safe. However, this could come under pressure in the future.

PAST TOP PICK

(Top Pick Feb 24/17, Up 3.56%) A Top Pick again. The growth rate remained great and they are a potential take out candidate.

TOP PICK

Small ticket equipment leasing to US companies. They have a top management team that can manage risks as well as the company. It has a 6.7% dividend that is sustainable and could be raised. They are a prime takeout candidate for major financial services companies. (Analysts’ target: $15.50).

TOP PICK

A small-ticket equipment leasing business, and they also provide lending solutions. Mostly operates in the US. The small business confidence in the US is at an all-time high, and as a result, they have seen a very strong pipeline. Has a good organic growth profile. A very solid and capable management team that understands the credit cycles. Thinks this is a prime take-out candidate because it would be hugely liquid for a financial services institution. Dividend yield of 6.8% is sustainable and there is room for further dividend increases.

COMMENT

Just had an interesting quarter where they had great numbers both from earnings and cash flow, but their loan loss provisions came in a little bit lower than expected. It looks like management is streamlining what they have, making a few smaller acquisitions that tuck into their traditional financing business. It still trades at a pretty reasonable multiple. Also, has a nice yield which is well supported. He has this on his radar screen.

COMMENT

A great stock. Trading at under 10X earnings with a 7.5% dividend yield that is more than covered with earnings and cash flow. This has been really getting focused on their core business of leasing and working capital loans. They deal with small and medium-sized businesses. Very smart management. He expects to see multiple expansion to 11 or 12 times earnings, a 20% gain from here not including the dividend.

merchandising / lodging
COMMENT

Thinks this company is destined to be privatized. Trading at about 9 or 10 times earnings, pays a really nice dividend, insiders own a big chunk, and business is pretty good. You have other leasing companies that are trading at much higher valuations. No one is really paying attention to this and it doesn’t trade a whole lot. He thinks that eventually a private equity group or management might consider taking it private. Dividend yield of 7.8%.

merchandising / lodging
BUY

Good company. They have good management and it is a good business. It is at a fair price right now. Good yield of 6.6%.

merchandising / lodging
HOLD

It is safe. It is one of the smaller cap stocks that is in financial services. It is Ontario based. Dividend is 6.5%.

merchandising / lodging
PARTIAL SELL

This is an example of one that he would lighten up on. A very good company and very well-managed, but their US businesses are centred in Denver, which has been a beneficiary of a lot of the oil/gas activity. He thinks there is vulnerability for a slowdown. Also, their Denver leasing company is also involved tangentially in construction, housing, etc. and he expects there will be a slow down there.

merchandising / lodging
BUY

Had a bit of a correction recently. Feels there has been some insider selling. Good company. Within the financial services area, there is a smaller, dividend yielding play. Yield of 6.4%. (See Top Picks.)

merchandising / lodging
BUY

Great company. Doesn't quite have the ROE that he looks for, but even so it is a Buy. Thinks the dividend is going to be fine. Got a little bit ahead of itself when it went up to $18-$19. At this price it is quite attractive.
