Missed last quarter's earnings and down 15-20%. This quarter was great, and now it's making new highs. Great Canadian company, lots of free cash flow, asset light. Tuck in acquisitions and grow organically. Good growth coming along. They'll do well over the next little while.

Managers have been excellent capital allocators. They stumbled in the last quarter regarding their restoration business, but bad weather made that quarter look worse than it really was. He expects they will grow their restoration business. It's stalled now, so now is a good opportunity to buy. (Analysts’ price target is $134.83)

A unique Canadian company. Disciplined management makes good acquisitions, but the stock fell on their last earnings report with higher labor costs (that they passed onto their customers). They also do property management--there's room to grow in this space, because there remains lots of mom-and-pop businesses to buy. Their contracts are like annuities, renewed each year. FSV had issues with execution, but he's confident they'll sort this out. FSV manages a lot of gated communities in the US and apartment buildings.

It looks like it's broken out and could go up to $130. He would look into it more on the fundamental side though. Sometimes, companies finds a footing and then loses it, like Blackberry. He would personally stay away from it.

A fine growth by acquisition story, buying in the US. Lots of insider ownership, too. Managers are great growing FSV. He sold his shares when the multiple rose; margins don't get high in this business. This is still a good long-term opportunity. A few weak quarters have made this worth looking at.

Also a past pick. They had a bad quarter and the stock fell 10%; their residential division hurt them. But there's little capex for FSV. They continue to buy businesses, like California Closets, and they manage properties. They do lots of tuck-in buys plus organic growth. They grow 10% consistently. Great growth in the US with their US assets. (Analysts’ price target is $132.94)

Their businesses are closets, painting and restoration--property management. It's a solid mid-single-digit organic grower. They're benefiting from the American real estate market, especially multi-residential. They grow by acquisition, making nice tuck-ins. It's well-run. He's owned this before and re-entered it recently from a recent pullback from weak earnings. (Analysts’ price target is $132.65)

A capital-lite business with few fixed assets and low capex as they generate a lot of cash. But recently they missed their EBITDA by 5%, largely from their restoration business. They grow by acquisition as well as organically. Managers own a lot of shares. It's a buying opportunity now after that earning miss. (Analysts’ price target is $131.91)
