Open Text vs CGI? The major difference is that one pays a dividend and one grows by acquisition. For these reasons he prefers OTEX-T for the 1.6% dividend.

CGI vs Open Text? He would like to own both of these. Having some growth in your portfolio is good -- especially if the economy is going to slow. He likes the yield of Open Text. He likes the predictably of earnings with CGI, so slightly favours it.

There is a secular theme where companies will continue to spend on IT development. The industry is growing between 5 and 6%, roughly twice the growth rate of the economy. They can now make another acquisition and he is watching for potential catalysts.

Had a nice run. Getting a bit ahead of itself in valuation, and will probably go sideways until there's another deal. If you hold it, and you're a long-term investor, you'll be fine if you continue to hold. If you're a short-term trader, consider selling and buying back down the road.

He likes this large tech company. It has been a slower grower, but they have put in some good earnings -- especially in Europe. He thinks they may introduce a dividend, when they report Q4 results soon. The stock trades at 17 times earnings and it has good growth prospects. He respects the management team.

Worried about the market and U.S. politics. There's some progress in China-US trade and both sides need a resolution. But don't over-emphasize the politics like the U.S. Government shutdown; the economy will still march ahead as recent strong unemployment numbers demonstrate. The wall and shutdown are noise. Be more positive on the market, and corrections happen all the time.

It is Canada's biggest technology company. It has really good valuation, it is defensive and it is a growth story with a good technical profile. He thinks it is undervalued and will continue to reduce its debt. If it gets through the high that it is near now, it will be a pretty good part of a portfolio for the next year. (Analysts’ price target is $88.14)

One of Canada's largest tech companies. Continues to like it. Valuation has crept up, trades at 18x earnings, but is quite profitable returning high teens ROE. Rose quickly and consistently, with 9% compound growth rate. "Untech" tech stock. Shook off huge rotation from growth to value in the summer. Unloved because organic growth rate is tepid. Tuck-in acquisition strategy working nicely. IP30 strategy is margin accretive. Would be a buyer here. Despite lack of respect from the street, has gone up 10 years in a row.

Good company that he's been following, though hasn't put any money in yet. Lots of business is offshore, Europe and US mainly. Waiting for it to pull back, and it hasn't because they keep producing good results. It's a bread-and-butter business, a problem-solver for businesses.

(A Top Pick Nov 10/17, Up 20%) Long owned this and still likes it. They do half-IT outsourcing and half IT-consulting. The former is long-term with a stable revenue stream. Diversified around Europe and Canada. Good organic growth. She'd buy it around $80 during this pullback. They don't pay a dividend, but they buy back stock. They're introducing more intellectual property in their software which is higher margin.

Has been buying during this pullback, which is an attractive entry point. Their outsourcing businees are long-recurring revenues, which are a defensive cash-flow stream. Seeing good growth in consulting as cybersecurity grows among companies. But pays no dividend. Positioned well, and about to make a purchase which will grow the company.

He would sit tight on this one. This is a very consistent growth story in the Canadian technology space. Came out with numbers that were slightly below on top line, operating line and earnings. But miss was small. Amount of organic growth has slowed, but historically organic growth is slow. He would continue to hold this stock. They are a prolific cash machine and very profitable. They are buying back stock and making small acquisitions. Does provide double digit earnings growth so provides good value.

She would make the next buying decision after the next management report, which will come in a month. They are beginning to see good top line growth: 4 or 5%. They are seeing increasing demand from government and commercial clients. Half their business is outsourcing, which tends to be more stable because it offers longer-term engagements. The other half is IT services, which is growing. This is usually a leading indicator for more longer-term outsourcing contracts.

He likes this one.  It is good as a long term hold.  It is a secular growth story.  He has owned it for some time.  It grows quickly, about 15% at a compound rate.  17% ROE.  It is trading at the higher end of the valuation bands.  It is about 18 times earnings, typically 15.  It is not as sexy as some of the tech stocks south of the boarder.  There is good reason to believe there is good growth in the pipeline.  Heavy deficit spending in the US is their single biggest customer and this is positive.  They are known for near shoring so they don’t outsource to India and so on.  They have an underleveraged balance sheet.  It is a good long term buy right here.

Have owned for many years. Well managed company. Recurring revenue stream, long-term contracts, stable cash flows. Relatively mature business, with some acquisitions. Ready for another big acquisition. Decent organic growth vertically. Older systems that CGI is familiar with are not built to accommodate the access that customers demand. Her target price is $85-87. Likes it long term. Keep holding. Doesn’t pay a dividend.

(A Past Top Pick on May 16, 2017, Up 9%) She's held this for a long time. It's a Canadian IT company that does outsourcing with long-term contracts--a recurring revenue stream that will protect them if the economy weakens. They are 50% in Europe after an acquisition a few years ago. Margins are back up. They're ready to buy a bigger purchase.  They are seeing good organic growth in their vertical markets (i.e. cybersecurity).

An extremely well-managed company, and they’ve gone from just being a Canadian regional company in the late 90s, to being one of the global giants in outsourcing of IT. Have made a lot of acquisitions and integrated them well. Expects they will continue doing so. One of the few Canadian technology companies that is big and global, and a core holding in most Canadian institutional portfolios. Thinks it will gradual move upward for quite a while.

They are seeing solid organic growth from their financial service end market, as older financial firms are having to modernize their systems. Attractively valued, so it is still a Buy. Doesn’t pay a dividend, which is a drawback for income investors.

Chart shows this has been in an up channel since August. The key support is at around $66. Fundamentally, the productivity, security and being competitive is what all companies are looking for these days to stay in business and stay profitable. Outsourcing IT is very important for them to get the maximum for their IT bucks. The growth profile is very good. They’ve had some lower margin contracts expiring, and are replacing them with higher margin ones. Also, they are good acquirers of other businesses. (Analysts' price target is $74.)

About half their revenue comes from outsourcing on long-term contracts, which are reoccurring, and the other half is systems integration consulting contracts. They are well positioned on the technology trends, with everybody having to develop a digital platform and automate processes for artificial intelligence. Companies are having to look at their legacy technology systems, and upgrade to make them more digital, online. When you do that, you are inviting customers and the world onto your website, which means cyber Security is another issue. This company has solutions to address all these metrics. Very global with about 50% from Europe, 30% in the US and the balance in Canada and Asia. (Analysts’ price target is $74.)

(A Top Pick Sept 13/16. Up 4%.) Was surprised this has not done better. She still likes the stock. A great growth name. They don’t pay a dividend, so are definitely interested in growing their business and reinvesting in the business, outsourcing and integration. Outsourcing is on long-term contracts which has more stable cash flow streams. Every few years, this tends to do a large acquisition to increase their geographic scope or their vertical they want to increase their presence. They are ready to do another acquisition, but haven’t been able to find anything that fits their financial discipline, so have been making a lot of smaller tuck in acquisitions. They are seeing good pickup in organic growth, particularly with the whole issues of Cyber Security and automating processes to compete with new technologies. Cyber Security is going to be an ongoing trend.
