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.

(A Top Pick July 12, 2017. Up 27%). This technology company has had a nice rise but she might not buy it at this level. 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.

It had been a go-nowhere stock for a long time until the beginning of this year and then it popped. It is a great story and has tones of upside. It is overbought short term but it has lots of legs and lots of upside ahead of it.

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.

Likes it. A lot of companies, like banks, have outdated computer systems--which CGI updated--so there's a long runway of growth for CGI. He's held this for a long while.

(Past Top Pick on May 16, 2017, Up 16%) They tend to make an acquisition every few years to expand geographic presence or in a certain vertical. Well-managed. Have increased their margins. They're ready to make a large acquisition after making some smaller ones. Their financial services has seen good organic growth. Their business is half-services, half-consulting in IT. Companies need to modernize and digitize to compete with online players. Pays no dividend. Buy for good long-term capital growth.

This is at a more modest multiple than many tech companies. They are capable of organic growth. He might own it at a lower price. It is a quality company within the industry. They have good long term contracts.

(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).

A great compounder of wealth for many years. It is Canada’s largest IT outsourcing company with most of its revenue coming from outside Canada. Their largest customer is the US military. They have the balance sheet strength to pull off a large acquisition. Yield 0%. (Analysts’ price target is $75.35 )

Buy and put it away. Their business model works: make acquitions in software services, generate cash flow and pay down debt. Balance sheet is in great shape. Cloud services are giving them a lift too. Their multiple is in the low teens.
