From 2016 to early-2017, their chart had an uptrend. Since then, it's been sideways. Either buy at the bottom of this range and trade the range, or wait for a breakout. It has been underperforming the TSX, too.

He does not own anything in this space.  The company is well run, but finds the business difficult with constant pressure on margins on several fronts.  If it had a 5% dividend it might make sense to own and hold.  There is better choices out there.

It is a seasonal stock.  It is a great trading stock.  It is going to come into a lid in the mid to high $40s.  It has a good potential to get into the $45-$47 area and he would get out of the trade after that.

(A Top Pick March 15, 2017 Down 3.4%)   He still believes this is a well-run company.  They sold some of the position during a recent rally.  Competition has heated up especially with home delivery and he will size his position accordingly.

Produces about 3% free cash flow yield, which translates into $287 million worth of free cash flow over the last 12 months. Trades at 0.9 Enterprise Value to Trailing Sales, versus 6% year-over-year sales growth, so the EV to sales to sales growth is .15 which is a C+ compared to the database. Dividend yield of 1.6%. (Analysts’ price target is $46.)

There are two equal and offsetting forces.  They just made a large acquisition, taking them off their main strategy.  It looks like it will be accretive.  He likes the deal.  The offsetting headwind is the incursion of AMZN-Q into grocery.  He thinks this is overdone.  Whole foods does not have that big a presence in Canada.

Selling their Couche-Tard shares and buying Jean Coutu (PJC.A-T). Amazon (AMZN-Q) is entering the market with their purchase of Whole Foods. A very competitive space now. Besides the issue of having price competitiveness, you also have the minimum wage situation coming.

Loblaw (L-T), Empire (EMP.A-T) or Metro (MRU-T)? Loblaw has proven to be the best run grocer in Canada. Empire has had its challenges but is starting to come back. This company would be somewhere in between the two.

This typically does really well from April to July, but once you get into July, it tends to move lower. We are now past the period of seasonal strength. Stay away from this for now. There are other opportunities.

Very well-run in Canada, but has been under pressure recently due to Amazon’s acquisition of Whole Foods, which has pressured US grocers to a much greater degree. Reduced his position in the mid-$40. Well-run, and at the right price, the kind of company you can own, but be mindful that longer-term there is a potential margin and headwind from various technologies that are changing on how Canadians are buying groceries. The present price is fair.

We saw what just happened with the Amazon Whole Foods acquisition, which sent shivers down the spine of the US grocery retailers. There was a little less reaction in Canada, but it does put Canadian grocers on notice. There is the health reform in Québec and the minimum wage situation in Ontario. These are some of the issues that have made the stock go sideways a little. His preferred way to play grocers would be Loblaw’s (L-T), but he doesn’t own any grocers right now.

(A Top Pick May 19/16. Up 0.26%.) Sold this late last year, in order to move into the more cyclical areas. The sector has intense competition. He isn’t too interested in this space.

(A Top Pick March 15/17. Up 15%.) The period of seasonal strength is right through until the end of July, so the seasonality is still great. Technicals are clearly on the upside. They just came out with some very good news on earnings, which continues to improve. Continue to hold.

Looking out over 20 years, this has been one of the best performing stocks out there. Has a lot of respect for management. They are excellent at allocating capital and at operations. Shares have pulled back recently because of inflationary concerns, but when he looks at this over the long-term, nothing has changed. Although there is a bit of inflation now and a little bit of competitive intensity in a weak economy, they have dealt with this before and will deal with it again. The multiple has pulled back to what he thinks is a fair number for long-term holders. Dividend yield of 1.6%. (Analysts’ price target is $45.50.)

This is his trade to hide somewhere in Canada. The chart shows this is in a long-term upward trend from 2014. In the last few days, the chart shows it has formed a gorgeous double bottom pattern, and is finally showing signs of improvement. It has already outperformed the Canadian market. It also does well in the summer, as defensive stocks do much better at that time. Seasonally, this does well from around now through to the middle of July. (Analysts’ price target is $45.50.)
