A small, nichy name that he has owned. They operate in Regina where there have a lot of commodity-driven business. They have periods where the company doesn't do well, but they do generate cash to fund acquisitions. Has a decent balance sheet. The 5% dividend is safe and will slowly grow. Limited downside. But it's a small cap, so illiquid. He follows this.

(A Top Pick April 25/16. Up 14.93%.) Owns a land registry in Saskatchewan, so any transaction for housing or corporate or personal goes through them. Investors are looking for businesses that have a long duration, or really long life assets. Because it is stable and pays a dividend of almost 5%, investors are willing to pay a higher price for it. There is still probably another leg up from here.

Basically land registries in Saskatchewan. Very good business and very stable so dividend should be sustainable. Saskatchewan is one of the more rapidly growing provinces. To him it may be fully valued but it is one of the Steady Eddie stocks that you could buy and just put away. This will not be a sexy growth company but will provide the steady dividend and over time you get small, but gradual increases.
