HOLD
A safe place to invest--groceries in remote areas of Canada. Stocks are pricey vs. historic multiples, because they are defensive and stable. If you own, hold on or take some profits. Good to hold this in an uncertain world. They're well-managed.

COMMENT
He used to it own two years ago when its growth stalled. They operate in the extreme north so enjoy a retail monopoly, even insulated from e-commerce. So, they're stable. But they struggle to integrate an airline they bought. It yields 4%, which is safe, but he doesn't see stock price appreciation.

COMMENT
Resistance at $28. He predicts a general market pullback in January of 5-10%. This will return to $27. Wait. But if it breaks below $23, it will head lower.
merchandising / lodging
TOP PICK
They're going more into services. They're integrating a small airline for delivery, so there's synergy. Pays a fine 4.65% yield. A long-term buy. (Analysts’ price target is $31.00)

PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Oct 24/18, Up 5%) Has been flattish. Frustrated with it. Used to be a compelling retail story. Earnings stalled, and share price stuck in a trading range. Didn't like their acquisition of an airline.
merchandising / lodging
DON'T BUY
They are almost a regulated company as they are so subsidized. It is a decent but very slow growth company. He would look elsewhere.

PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Feb 22/18, Up 23%) He bought at the right time; NWC has since benefitted from the rise in defensive stocks. It's a multi-year secular grower, insulated from competitors. NWC bought a small regional airline and have struggled to integrate it into their supply chain, and were hit hard in the Caribbean where they also operate from hurricanes in 2017. A macro tailwind is that Alaska and the far north have had strong economies. He's sticking with this and happy to.
merchandising / lodging
TOP PICK

Deals in staples with inelastic demand, running stores in Alaska and remote northern Canada and isolated parts of the South Pacific and Caribbean selling food and general merchandise. These areas are so remote that there is no competition from e-commerce. These are natural monopolies, so NWC enjoys higher margins than a grocer. They're rebuilding their Caribbean stores after the 2017 hurricanes. (4.55% dividend yield, Analysts; Price Target $32.40)

WEAK BUY

He held it a few years ago. It took a tumble and has started to stabilize. They have a unique business model. You have a good yield but he is cautious that they have not turned the corner yet after the pull back. It is a little expensive.

WATCH

He is considering owning it. They have some short term issues, some self inflicted and some market. They just bought an airline.
