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.

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.

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)

They are almost a regulated company as they are so subsidized. It is a decent but very slow growth company. He would look elsewhere.

(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.

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)

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.

It's retail in the far north. Unlike retail outside the far north, NWC has customers scattered geographically who depend on their goods. But he thinks revenue and dividend growth will be weak. You're not getting much return. He's not a fan of retail anyway. Higher costs to retail in the far north where they operate, namely transportation of goods on snowy roads.

The stock has come way down. It had a great run for many years with very little competition but today, the margins of Giant Tiger have come way down in the West because of increased competition and because they are selling a higher proportion of food, which carries low margin. The expansion to the Caribbean has brought better margins but much higher risk because of the hurricanes. It’s a well-managed company that faces headwinds right now. It’s not clear what they will or should do with Giant Tiger in the future.

Recent addition to their portfolio. Operates 225 stores in the Canadian north and Caribbean. Kind of immune to the influence of e-commerce given its logistics. Acts like a natural local monopoly. Trades at 14.5 times earnings (Analysts’ price target is $33.80)

Giant Tiger Stores and original HBC stores in Northern Canada. They also have operations in the south pacific and in Alaska. It has been a very well managed company with limited competition. Giant Tiger is not a huge part of their operation. It is well managed and pays a good dividend. It is a pretty safe stock and you pay a premium for it.

This is in retail, but in remote areas. It was once a very good dividend yielder, but was forced to cut their dividend. It is going to be a steady company, and one he would look at, but just not quite large enough or stable enough on a long-term basis. A decent company.
