A small-cap that owns an interest in tissue paper, a commodity. Pays a high dividend but also high payout, so a strong risk of a dividend cut. How long can they sustain that dividend and how deep will they cut it?

Is the dividend safe? He doesn't know, but they have many troubles lately with low pulp prices and writedowns. The 8.7% yield isn't exactly safe. They're building a new plant in Sherbrooke to improve profitability. Hang onto it, but watch if that dividend rises.

The tissue space in general is struggling with pricing, probably as a result of over pricing in North America. Having a pure play in this area is not something you would want to do. Expects it will be challenged for the next couple of quarters. Prefers Cascades (CAS-T), which has an offset with container board/cardboard packaging.

As a hold for the next 5 years?On a total return basis, this is not as terrible as the stock price suggests. It has underperformed. There has always been something that pops up to hurt them over the past few years. It looks like pulp prices continue to go higher, so he doesn’t expect the best quarter in Q3. However, they have pricing power because their branded tissue toilet paper has been able to pass those price increases on to customers. He likes this for the 4.7% dividend. They have ambitious growth plans.

Trading like it is a private label company, which is not the case, because they have significant branded products they sell in Canada. The previous quarter they had was pretty good, and have announced that they are raising prices. They are looking to add another private label machine and has also started another private label machine in Québec, which should improve margins. The knock against the company is that it is always next year’s story. 5% dividend yield.

The largest branded tissue manufacturer in Canada. Also, sells private label in the US. Trying to increase its private label exposure in the US and hopes to launch another tissue plant. These are all going to take time, money and effort. In the meantime, the stock has done absolutely nothing. On the flipside, you have a terrific dividend of almost 5%. They are investing for the future, which is not a bad thing. You are going to have to be patient. It is cheap on a valuation standpoint, but does have more debt than he would like.

Produces personal paper products. A consumers staples name, so a bit on the premium valuation side, but deservedly so, because in a recessionary environment, people look at these types of stocks. Dividend yield of about 5%. He probably wouldn’t own this for anything other than the dividend. Growth is pretty slow.

Finally having a good year. It has been doing fine over time. Things that were headwinds for them are finally going to become tailwinds. The Cdn$ seems to have stabilized. They’ve been able to raise prices on their branded tissue and toilet paper. They are the #1 brand for toilet and tissue paper in Canada. Also sells private label tissue paper into the US through Walmart. The good news is that their private label manufacturing facility is sold out. They are planning to build a new facility, and if they do, they may have to do an equity and debt raise. If that goes through, it may increase the float and make the stock more attractive for institutional investors. Thinks it is worth $20 today and $22 if they get the go-ahead on the new facility.

When he bought his holdings, it was a much more competitive industry than what he had expected. The company had problems in getting their plant in Memphis Tennessee up and running and being as efficient as he had expected. This is now in that “show me” category. It is a good yield stock even if it doesn’t grow that much. He feels it is undervalued.

Has a big holding in this. One reason the stock is down is that they buy a lot of pulp in US$s, which has impacted margins. The company continues to maintain the leading brands of tissue and toilet paper. Absurdly cheap in his opinion. Hopes management initiates a share buyback or something. Feels the dividend is more than fully protected and expects a better year in 2016. It could easily recover to the $14-$15 range. Hopefully, once the US$ starts to tail off and the Cdn$ starts to rise, we will see better stock prices in the future.

Has underperformed. Thought they had a pretty good 1st quarter. The big issue is that they buy pulp in US dollars, the Cdn$ continues to go down and the input costs continue to go higher. Tried to offset this by raising prices, so we are not going to see the effect of this until the2nd, 3rd and 4th quarters. Pays a very nice dividend. The new plant in the US will be used to sell private label tissues to Wal-Mart (WMT-N) and have guided that by 2017 it will be filled up. They are actually looking to open up another plant, because capacity and demand is growing. He sees the potential for a dividend increase next year.
