This is a chart that is most definitely breaking down. It broke the trend earlier this year and it did so definitively. Give it a couple of days and if it stays below $22.50, then it will continue down.

Has been watching this for quite some time, and it has been riding one of his technical break points at about 4X BV for a long, long time. However, when he looks at his FMV metric, earnings have not really been going anywhere. What happens is that the balance sheet gets a bit bigger and bigger and FMV has been slipping. The stock gave him a technical Sell signal.

Managed to elude the proxy fight. One of Canada’s oldest companies. At any given time parts of it are working less well. Bad weather and less mining activity have affected far north business. As the economy improves he expects to see the stock price improve. It is a reasonable place to re-enter.

Expensive, but well managed. They made an acquisition in the Caribbean. There are barriers to entry due to geography. If you are going to invest in a retailer this is interesting, but the stock has never been cheap.

This is not so much a trending stock but more of a trading stock. Choppy uptrend but a whole lot of movement during that uptrend. Still on trend, but as typical with the stock, it is pulling back. You have to be able to handle this kind of volatility.

(Market Call Minute.) Major supplier of food and consumer goods in the Northwest Territories. Charges a pretty high-margin and has been very successful.

Has not looked at it recently. There is a huge development going on across Northern Canada. They may be very well positioned.

Fantastically run company in the Arctic as well as the Caribbean. Likes them because they are a little bit of a play on continued development of the mining sectors in northern Canada. Good dividend yield of 5%. Good operators. Nice sustainable competitive advantage.

Can grow despite adverse economic conditions. Stores across northern Canada. Dividend is attractive and they can grow that over time. Margins are larger than average for grocery.

(A Top Pick March 17/10. Up 29.21%.) Operates stores in northern communities. Usually the only game in town. Extremely well managed. Also have some franchises in Giant Tiger and Cost-U-Less stores. If you own, consider taking some profits in the near term.
