Very well-run company, buying convenience stores at gas stations. We're at the tipping point of mass adoption of e-cars. Big changes are coming. That's his only worry about this story. What will happen to gas demand, when traffic to their stores declines? You can take profits.

ATD.A vs. PKI Couche-Tard is a better company. Parkland has run up, but returns prospectively are lower. Couche-Tard will have better returns going forward, global consolidator of a fragmented industry, profitable, scalable, marketing sophistication. Buy it comfortably here, pullback is a great opportunity.

The gas stations and convenience stores have been under pressure by the environmental groups. Although electric vehicles are coming, it is a very small fleet and will remain small for quite some time. He would continue to hold.

Has a 5 year plan to double the size of the company. Including increasing fresh food offerings, taken from the successful European model. Cigarette and gasoline sales are under pressure. Has run up a lot, so wait for a pullback.

PKI-T vs. ATD.A-T. PKI-T and ATD.A-T are similar but ATD is more focused on convenience stores and PKI is more focused on gas stations. He owns both. PKI is a smaller company and so would not be so protected in a downturn. He thinks they will both continue to do well.

He sees about 20% upside from here. He would "go to war" with this stock. He would be a buyer here.

They made two massive acquisitions in the US. Two earnings seasons ago they missed it and that affected the stock but that is over. He thinks it is a fantastic business. Great margins. Trading at 14 times next year earnings which is not expensive.

An incredibly well run company. They really are experts at integrating acquisitions. They’ve had big tailwinds over the last 18-24 months, in that as the price of gasoline has fallen steadily, their margins increase and people spend more money on other stuff. Have also cross sold some of their food products. Trading at the high end of its valuation range, but on any pullback this is a core holding.

(A Top Pick Feb 24/14. Up 9.48%.) Nov 1, 2019, 3.19%. At that time, he was a little nervous about rates rising which is why he went for the 5 years. Also, on a spread basis, he thought it looked pretty attractive.

Decent stock. Great way to get European exposure. It will expand and grow going forward. Growth stock that pays a dividend along the way.

Growth by acquisition story and has done very well. The acquisition they made in Europe last year has turned out quite well for them. Because she is a value investor, the multiples are always a little high for her. Well managed company.

Extremely well managed company. Done well expanding their retail reach. He thinks it is expensive and would not buy at these levels. Not a bad place to take profits.

(Top Pick Oct 16’13, Up 24.51%) There is a lot of runway left, especially with their expansion plans. They are upping same store sales and cutting costs out. If you don’t own it, buy in the summer or buy some now and wait for it to pull back down the road. If it doesn’t then you still own some.
