He got stopped out of this. It's well-run, but the casinos are closed so there's no revenue coming in. GC carries a reasonable amount of debt. Also, casinos have high operating expenses, even during this lockdown. He wants to see stability in their debt, though. In recessions, gambling performs well, though.

Will GC go ahead with their Dutch auction at this low price? A Dutch auction is a buyback of shares in a block within a range. It's tax-inefficient for a shareholder who's not in an RRSP. Before the virus, itt was difficult for GC to get the amount of shares they wanted at a maximum of $46. But a clause says that if the S&P drops 10%, then the auction is off. But he believes GC will do the auction anyway. He likes this stock, a past pick. They will likely take advantage of this low stock price and change the price range. They have high cash flow and a reasonable valuation. Three to six months after this virus, GC will be in better shape because they bought back stock cheaper. Sure, there will be a slowdown in their gambling revenue, but not a cessation. It's hard to buy this with negative price momentum, but this is cheap. A long-term buy, sure.

A new casino is opening in Pickering, ON and will keep Ajax, ON going. Revenues are up 15%, but the stock price is down. Go figure. Canadians love gambling and seeing live bands at casinos. The stock is selling 22x earnings after this pullback, so maybe it got ahead of itself.

The money-laundering in Vancouver and the coronavirus have hurt the stock. For the latter, people aren't going to casinos. Revisit on any weakness. Sell on any strength. Or hold.

Corona virus has caused a sell off. Ultimately this will be a short term blip to this stock. He likes the business and they have a strong competitive business. They are building big, new facilities which he thinks will be very positive. They have been buying back stock.

It has been a bit of a frustrating ride for him. The stock price has gone nowhere. The stock has put in a floor here and he would like to see it go up now. This will tend to hold up well during periods of weakness. It is a very well run company. Their financial metrics are strong. He is looking to hold this longer term.

They run casinos in BC and ON. A strong consumer market should continue to support it. It has a 27% ROE and trades at 16 times earnings. There is some belief on the street that they over paid for the casino rights in the GTA, but he argues that this is already factored into the current valuation metrics. Another knock is that they are not paying a dividend. Yield 0% (Analysts’ price target is $47.25)

Their issue was the money-laundering inquiry in their BC casinos which stopped some good growth. Now, that issue is working its way through the system. The Woodbine Casino remains their jewel, attracting investment. GC offers a great return on capital. You don't need much capital to grow. New locations are very profitable. He owns Brookfield Business Partners which co-financed the Woodbine site.

Safe to collect the yield. But the stock appreciation needs more research, which he hasn't done. Well-managed, though.

GC-T vs. TSGI-T. They trade at significantly different multiples: 20 times vs. 10 times. TSGI-T has a bigger international perspective, but has more competition. He would prefer TSGI-T if they get their merger done.

It trades 16 times earnings and they have 10 year contracts to manage casinos and there is no real competition.

Stars vs. Great Canadian Gaming A great combo. Once he was long the Stars Group and short GCG, though he's still long GCG. The Ontario bundle was good for GCG, but there's too much uncertainty here. Expectations rose too high. Now, there's too much uncertainty in Vancouver with a money-laundering investigation. He liked GCG before the valuation is too high now. Stars is more interesting, because they bought as many assets as they could in online gambling which is popular around the world while sports betting is gradually being legalized in North America. He likes Stars. There's strong potential growth in this space, like 10%. Stars will capture a large market share.
