It is a significant holding for him. People are looking for safety. They dominate communities where their stores are. Yield is not too bad. Suspects distribution will be tax adjusted. Well run company. They have franchise area for Giant Tiger. If it goes a few more dollars, they will be tempted to take profits.

Retail facilities in the far north where they tend to be the only player in town. Also own Giant Tiger chain. Will convert to a corporation in early 2011 so they pay out could be adjusted at that time. 7.7% yield. Defensive play.

Value investors favour this. Outlets in rural and urban settings. In far north are the only game in town. Strong management and will be able to go through conversion, maintaining something close to the distribution. Insulated in retail world.

Focused on retail to northern and remote communities. Recession resistant. Made an acquisition of a similar company in the Caribbean, which is working out quite well. Near-term there could be softness in their quarter over quarter numbers because of the Indian residential schools settlement check last year. Outlook is quite good.

One of the largest operators of Giant Tiger stores in Northern Canada so it is like the Wal-Mart of the North. Won't be affected by a cyclical downturn. Very cheap.

Very good model for an income trust. They are often the only store available for long distances in the far north. Cash flow tends to be fairly steady. Influenced by the level of consumer spending. With the current outlook for a slowdown, the price has dropped.
