It became a show-me stock after its scandal, going sideways, running up only recently then has gone sideways, slightly breaking down now. He wouldn't buy it now, but would rather buy a lifeco. This will underperform in a market slowdown.

They operate where banks don’t tread. A legitimate business. They got caught in a squeeze with poor transfers in, but now they are doing well. As long as the housing market and economy goes well, it will continue to do well. The low interest rate has helped the company.

Confidence in the market is such a big thing for these alternative or sub-prime lenders. Hard time buying it at these levels. It can be a beast of a company, and will probably get back to that in time.

Recently he took profits, because his cost base was a third of its current price. It's had a tremendous run. The company has come back from its problems a few years ago, thanks to new managers who will continue to do well. He would buy more later. You can take some profits now.

They had near death experience a few years ago and was saved by Warren Buffet. It was unfairly attacked by the OSC. History shows they do not make imprudent loans and their securty on loans has been fine. A recession may increase their cost of bad loans, but not in a threatening way. They do need to reduce their cost of funding, however. Through Oaken they pay the highest rate for GICs. The company is pretty safe now.

Had a long downtrend until early 2017--a brush with death--then has gradually risen. It's testing resistance now, but seeing growing volumes. If this rises above resistance, pretty decent upside is coming. (Analysts’ price target is $26.61)

A great turnaround story. Big recovery with a solid business plan. This will return to the $30's soon. He's been watching it for a long time. Fundamentals score high, too. No, it's not a bank equivalent. It's unique. Exit at $21. Should hit $29 by the end of the year.

The issue is that Canadian housing growth is starting to slow. Also, with interest rates so slow, what is their funding model? HCG is at fair value now, after being rescued for dead by Warren Buffet. Can they keep originations and how profitable will it be? Also, what recent weak jobs data, how long will people keep buying homes?

The big challenge are their loans that are on the brink of default--they've ticked up a lot. If you can't get a home loan from the big banks, you go here. So, those homeowners will have trouble paying off their loans in a recession or cool-down.

Likes the company. Where does it go from here? FMV is 150% higher than it is right now, and it's been there before, so the potential is there. They've been buying back stock. He thinks the company should reward shareholders with a dividend.

It can be viewed as a speculative buy because things have turned around. It was a 100 bagger at one point. There were some disclosure problems and then Warren Buffet came in and is not exiting. Operationally they have been doing well.

It is very cheap right now. There is 180% potential upside, if you believe analysts earnings forecast. They need to use their earnings to pay a dividend. This would give the signal that management is under control again.
