This is a recent addition to their portfolio.  Loblaw runs some dominant banners in both grocery retailing and pharmacy.  Have accelerated their organic growth with the purchase of Shoppers Drugmart.  They have gained market share and shown margin improvement.  We like what they are doing operationally and financially.  Stock is trading at 14X earnings.  The value of growth and consistency in this name is exceptional.  (Analysts’ price target is $76.92)

Will Shoppers Drug Mart be the top distributor of medical marijuana? He doesn't know. But the problem here with Loblaw is competition from Amazon and small indie grocers. That's why this stock has been sideways.

Long-term it looks tough for them, with serious competition from Walmart and Costco. Loblaw is trying to cut costs and enhance its digital operations. Same-store sales are sluggish, though Shoppers is doing better. More headwinds: generic drug pricing, minimum wage rises and the US exchange rate.

He owns no grocers now. Loblaw faces the Amazon threat, as well as Walmart and Costco competition. He doubts Loblaw can maintain their margins. Shoppers Drug Mart though is rock solid. Look elsewhere.

Reasonable in terms of a longer term outlook. They sell products that everyone needs: food, and pharmaceuticals and beauty products through Shoppers Drug Mart. Good positions and locations in both those segments, which are critical for those types of businesses. Experienced operators. The industry is in transition regarding goods delivery and pickup. They have click and collect, and have introduced online delivery. Some headwinds with minimum wage, which they’re now overcoming. Earnings growth not that stellar. Going forward earnings should be in mid to high single digit range. Stock is reasonably priced at around $65, with a bit of a yield.

He recently bought this. Cash flow and earnings have ticked up, though the stock has been sidways the past few years. They've done well integrating Shopper's Drug Mart. They are massively buying back stock. Also done well growing No Frills, a growth opportunity. A safe, defensive name with room to grow. Pays a 1.8% dividend.

Revenues are flat for the grocery sector.  They bought back 5% of their stock and so earnings per share are going up.  He would stay away from the sector because of the lack of top line growth.

Lots of competition from well capitalized companies. Not really compelling form a technical point of view. Some of the reforms affecting the price of the generics drugs affect Shoppers Drug Mart that is owned by this company. There is also food inflation to deal with. Consumers staples in general is a sector that he doesn’t like. Margins are very thin.

Their 200-day moving average has been flat for a year and is starting to decline. It faces many headwinds: costs, heavy competition (from Walmart, Costco, Amazon); reform in testing of generic drugs; and higher wages in some provinces.

Has good free cash flow yield of 8-9%. The premiere grocery store in Canada. Its trading valuation has come down. Deflation on the grocery side is stabilizing. They spent a lot of money on the technology behind supply chain management, which caused lots of problems, but is now saving them money. Shoppers Drug Mart acqusition is doing incredibly well. Bottom line is growing around 8-10%. Don't expect capital appreciation of past years because competitors have caught up to them. Dividend yield of 1.7%

He thinks the reward system update has not gone well and can cause fissures in customer loyalty.  Presuming they can recover there is not much competition and things should go back to normal.  It is a well-run company, hey says, and they would be a company to keep as an anchor.

BUY on WEAKNESS

The grocery business is tough, with very low margins. Minimum wage, tougher pricing on drugs and the bread scandal are headwinds. He likes their strong discount presence, their urban focus and their stock buybacks. He thinks they are much better positioned than Metro or Empire. Lots of people don’t like this stock now, which is another reason that he likes it. With all the free cash flow buying that much stock, they are paying you to wait.

He would avoid it. Good company but better places to allocate your money in the next couple of years. Generic drug reform is going to affect them as well as the increase in minimum wages. Food price deflation is affecting them as well as the threat of e-commerce.

(A Top Pick April 26, 2017. Down 12.78%). The increase in minimum wage is a $140 million headwind in 2018 and there is a lot of competition. He sold the stock early in the year. There are continuing struggles in the food industry group.
