(Market Call Minute.) Has been struggling since the little disaster they had in the spring. Higher activity in the mortgage market by the government. He would either Hold or stay away.

DON'T BUY
Home Capital Group (HCG-T)

You have to ask yourself why you are buying this. Is it for the yield or share price appreciation? If the yield, there are a lot of other places where you could get a similar yield, or even a better one. On share price appreciation, there is a lot of risk. If you are okay with the speculative nature, then maybe take a half position and hope to strike it right before things turn around. There are still lots of questions on this stock in terms of the business itself. Also, they are in a sector that is feeling pressure from rising interest rates, high household levels of debt. He wouldn't be a buyer. Keep it boring and get a lot of safety at the same time by looking at Canadian banks, or even the US banks.

COMMENT
Home Capital Group (HCG-T)

Has been in a kind of whirlwind in the last 6 months or so. Warren Buffett came in with a lifeline, and gave them a new lease on life. New regulations are being introduced in the housing market, which will have a little impact on their business. He would rather own a safer name such as a bank.

COMMENT
Home Capital Group (HCG-T)

Doesn’t think there is any money to be made in this. There are a lot of people more bullish on the stock than he is. Their capital issues have gone aside. They have the new investors and new management. His problem is the business model. It is a funding issue. The cost of financing has gone up, and he thinks the spread is tight, so where do they make money going forward?

TOP PICK
Home Capital Group (HCG-T)

He had been anxious to see how diluted the BV was going to be. Actually, not much happened. The balance sheet remains pretty much intact. Now that all the rubbish is behind them, the company can do what they were doing. Analysts are starting to get a little friskier with their earnings forecasts. In the next 6-12 months, he thinks we are going to see more and more upside momentum. On top of that, they may very well reinstate part of the dividend. The stock is trading at a huge discount to Book. (Analysts’ price target is $17.)

PAST TOP PICK
Home Capital Group (HCG-T)

(A Top Pick Nov 4/16. Down 43%.) The whole market was somewhat askance at how the situation on this was handled. It literally caused a run on the bank. Also, for a while, it was tenuous as to whether this would survive. It fell so fast, that he decided not to dump his shares. His feeling was that the fundamentals of this business were still intact. They’ve managed to execute a recovery which was very astute. This was followed by Warren Buffett stepping in, and funding costs started going down. Recently announced they were going to stop paying some of the excessive rates they were paying on GICs, etc. He is still buying shares.

COMMENT
Home Capital Group (HCG-T)

Seasonality does not apply to this because of all the things that have been going on during the last few months. Technically, there has been a low on the stock, followed by a Buffet bump and the stock reached what seems to be an overhead resistance level. There is basically a trading range now, and it wouldn’t be unusual for that range to stay there for quite a while.

COMMENT
Home Capital Group (HCG-T)

This will probably motor up, because it was an extraordinarily important core company in the lower end of the mortgage market. There was a smell in the company, and new management came in. Quite often when new management moves towards the smell, it often later exits. Canadian Western Bank (CWB-T) seems to be taking some of their business.

HOLD
Home Capital Group (HCG-T)

This has been a battleground stock over the last year. There has been a lot of controversy, which culminated with an infusion of capital from Warren Buffett. The trouble was entirely of their own creation. They are going to survive and they have new management. The dividend is not likely to be reinstated anytime soon. He would prefer Canadian banks instead.

WEAK BUY
Home Capital Group (HCG-T)

[Non-caller Question - news headline regarding class action settlement prompted host question]  They recapitalized themselves.  A ruling was made today on their lawsuit.  This is probably the last thing they had to do to clean up.  They were caught because they did business with these guys, caught it and then did not disclose it.  The damage did more harm than the discloser.  He thinks the shorts may be wrong in this one.

Looking out 12 months, this is probably an attractive name. The company is doing all the right things in terms of their board and a new president. It might be a bit of a grind higher from here. The easy money has been made.

He believes the bad news is in the equation.  Warren Buffet has come in and provided capital for them to deploy into mortgages and this has really improved their situation.  The worst is behind them.

DON'T BUY
Home Capital Group (HCG-T)

This looks like a “traders stock” and could be a great trade. There is the potential that it could get up to its downward trend line. A riskier trade than what he would want to be involved in, because the big picture is Down. You will have to be a very quick and agile trader to work with these stocks.

TOP PICK
Home Capital Group (HCG-T)

This is back to being a company and not a rank speculation like it was a couple of months ago. There is nothing wrong with the balance sheet. A bunch of American speculators drove this company into the ground. In a couple of quarters, we should start seeing a bounce back in earnings, as well as dividends. (Analysts’ price target is $17.63.)

DON'T BUY
Home Capital Group (HCG-T)

It was one of those stocks that just kept getting more and more extended.  He exited 2 or 3 years ago.  The buffet injection of cash is a good thing.  It is a case of how much the culture and the company has to transform.  You are also looking at an interesting time in the Canadian housing market.
