Sabina Gold & Silver Corp. (SBB-T) TSE
(A Top Pick Mar 03/20, Up 14%) Are developing gold in Nunavut in a fully-permitted, high-grade, open-pit project.

Alamos Gold Inc (AGI-T) TSE
AGI vs. FVI Likes both. Down from peak. Lots of exploration work, massively increased high-grade gold reserves. Finding new gold deposits around the globe has been very difficult. So when they double their reserves at home, in Canada, that's even better. Stick with it.

Sprott Physical Gold (PHYS-T) TSE
The CAD can easily go to 65 cents, reflected in the price of gold. Either the TLT or PHY explodes. If we enter recession, TLT outperforms and gold declines.
Their ventilator business has grown in recent years tough they struggled to access Covid patients in hospitals. They had great revenues in their last quarter. They're expanding operations as they enter new markets. EBITDA was lower than expected, so shares pulled back. They trade at half the PE of their peers. The CEO is one…

SNC-Lavalin Group Inc. (SNC-T) TSE
Margins not as robust as some peers. Stock's done fairly well in last 2 years. He prefers other names in the group, though they all look expensive right now. He'd look at WSP or STN. Owns ARE, but that's a different kind of story.
Thomson Reuters Corp (TRI-T) TSE
Fundamentally a strong company.Recent increase in shares makes name expensive.Waiting for shares to fall before buying.Long term is a good investment.Very strong assets and management.

Here’s this week’s 52-week lows stocks on Stockchase…
Lots of opportunity in the US. Guilty of using easy money to build massive facilities. Big writedowns. Big equity offering. Doesn't see an imminent big export market. Longer term potential, but it's an outside probability.
Charlotte’s Web Holdings Inc (CWEB-T) TSE
Wellness drives CBD demand and there's more competition entering this space. The CBD market continues to expand into drinks and food. He used to own this, but sees better opportunities. But CWEB is one of the U.S. leaders in this crowded space, so it's okay. You want to be in this space.
Extendicare Inc (EXE-T) TSE

We recommend covering the balance of the position at this time. When combined with the previous recommendation to cover half the position, this results in a net investment gain over 46%.

A smart move to get into beer by buying some brands. True, they are losing money, but this and Canopy are the best in this space.
Titan Medical Inc. (TMD-T) TSE
Medical robotics? He does not know TMD-T well. He plays the space through and ETF of BOTZ-Q. He prefers ISRG-Q, if you wanted an individual holding.
Canopy Growth Corp. (WEED-T) TSE
It is the biggest in the Canadian market and is moving into the U.S. market as well. He focuses on the U.S. market. An inventory of cannabis products is building in New York with some of it being the illegal variety.
Nova Leap Health Corp. (NLH-X) TSXV
Doesn't know much about this. Shied away from it for now, because it doesn't trade much. Has the potential to be a bigger small-cap healthcare company, an area that he likes.
Salona Global Medical (SGMD-X) TSXV
Underlying business still working fantastically. Comes down to market size and market cap. Trades at around 1x sales, whereas peers are around 3x sales. As they continue to grow organically and by acquisition, revenue keeps going up. Announced NASDAQ listing, which will boost multiple. Acquisition in progress should boost revenue by 35-40%, share price should…

VentriPoint Diagnostics (VPT-X) TSXV
Billy Kawasaki’s Insights - Billy’s most-liked answers from 5i Research. The company develops and commercializes diagnostic tools to monitor heart disease.

Fire & Flower Holdings (FAF-T) TSE
Chain of cannabis dispensaries, solely in Canada. Deep pockets, due to investment from ATD, which taps into smart management but caps potential. You want to own the integrated operators that go from seed to store. He owns CURLF instead.
Trevor Rose’s Insights - Trevor’s most-liked answers from 5i Research. Struggling with broad market weakness. Investors are throwing in the towel. Has to prove it can meet expectations. Turnaround might be taking hold.
Cogeco Communications (CCA-T) TSE
(A Top Pick Jan 26/23, Down 10.7%)Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O’Reilly Our PAST TOP PICK with CCA has triggered its stop at $61. To remain disciplined, we recommend covering the position at this time.
Corus Entertainment (B) (CJR.B-T) TSE
Balance sheet's come down in 3 steps. After the first 2 steps, the stock doubled, but it was short term and you had to be quick. No guarantees it will happen again a third time. Yesterday's dividend cut may cause a quick pop in the stock.
Jamieson Wellness (JWEL-T) TSE
Going forward, will be a large market for healthcare products. Aging population will ensure demand for products. Vitamins will help aging population. Healthcare will do well in the long term.
LXRandCo, Inc. (LXR-T) TSE
They pick up vintage, expensive handbags they find in Asia then sell them here in kiosks. Interesting business, but has performed poorly. He didn't buy it.
High Tide Inc. (HITI-X) TSXV
Cannabis is such a challenging sector. Has expanded into the U.S. He has great respect for management. It could be a possible takeout target.
Snip Interactive Inc (SPN-X) TSXV
This does mobile marketing for big brands, where you use your phone to run loyalty programs and purchase validations. Down 53% in the last year, because it got caught up in the downdraft in the TSX Venture. It would be higher today, except that their financing was the worst kept secret on Bay Street, which…
The Lion Electric Co (LEV-N) TSE
Leaders in their field and have a huge backlog, but they're losing a lot of money, since it's a capital-intensive business. They recently raised some money, with Power Corp investing half that. If they keep growing at this rate, they will continue to need capital. If you believe in EV's, you have to be in…
Artis Real Estate Investment Trust (AX.UN-T) TSE
(A Top Pick Jan 26/23, Down 7.8%)Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O’Reilly Our PAST TOP PICK with AX.UN has triggered its stop at $8.80. To remain disciplined, we recommend covering the position at this time.
Fiera Capital Corp (FSZ-T) TSE
Believes company has done good job in growing & diversifying business. Largest portion of business in equities. Excited about move into private business models. Weak financial numbers lately a concern. Would not recommend buying company. Stick to Blackstone instead.
Greenlane Renewables Inc. (GRN-T) TSE
Likes the sector, lots of runway. Renewable natural gas. Governments are increasing demand. On his radar. Will look at again when risk appetite in the market returns.
Dream Impact Trust (MPCT.UN-T) TSE
A small-cap company, not focussed on real estate, managed by Dream Unlimited. Focused on renewable energy and have an interest in the office buildings owned by Dream Office REIT. DRA has a growing land base in the GTA for condo sites. It's trading at a discount to NAV. They've traded a substantial issuer bid to…
NorthWest Health Prop Real Est Inv Trust (NWH.UN-T) TSE
It owns medical facilities globally. This includes medical office buildings, hospitals, etc. The balance sheet is a bit stretched along with an 8% yield. Another concern is some cash flow disruption due to not hedging currencies.
Slate Office REIT (SOT.UN-T) TSE
He's bearish on office REITs, given work-from-home. SOT operates in secondary markets, which can be a good business, but is capital intensive. SOT is doing a fine job, but offices face double-digit vacancies. Money needs to be spend on improving spaces, less to shareholders.
True North Commercial REIT (TNT.UN-T) TSE
Smaller cap office space REIT focused in Canada. Has a bit more of government concentration so that provides some stability. Has a high distribution yield but it is not fully covered by cash flow.. Analysts have 4 holds.
Aimia (AIM-T) TSE
Event driven investment (not long term) based on cash on the balance sheet. Lots of cash on the balance sheet. Estimate sum of parts share value is $7 when currently trading at $4 on the markets.
Allied Properties REIT (AP.UN-T) TSE
Way off from highs. Covid has changed how and where we work. What is your conviction level that office occupancy will revert to the pre-Covid mean? What's the timeline for that? He doesn't have the answers. It's in the "too hard" pile. If looking for a similar yield, try BCE.
Bonterra Energy Corp (BNE-T) TSE
Their debt has always been an issue. Trading at in-line levels for their multiple. Does not check his boxes in his fund.
Baytex Energy Corp (BTE-T) TSE
Looking at the chart, pretty big runup since the pandemic. Most energy stocks have had a sideways consolidation over the last year or so. Oil likely to move lower and be in a sideways, choppy trading range. Easy money's been made.
Gran Tierra Energy Inc. (GTE-T) TSE
Great energy stock, but seeing better opportunity in other names. Operating in Colombia which has geopolitical risk. Windfall taxes etc.
Ovintiv (OVV-T) TSE
(A Top Pick Feb 07/23, Down 20.6%)Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O’Reilly Our PAST TOP PICK with WOVVhas triggered its stop at $49. To remain disciplined, we recommend covering the position at this time.
Precision Drilling (PD-T) TSE
Energy is very cyclical. This will lose money when the economy is on the downturn. That happened a few years ago. Unless you are optimistic about oil prices, don't build a position.
Pipestone Energy Corp. (PIPE-X) TSE
Recent market selloff due to quality of acreage. Current share price presenting good buying opportunity (1x cash flow). Expecting stock buybacks next year. Low conviction on the name.
TC Energy (TRP-T) TSE
Sell or hold? Most controversial of the pipelines with Coastal GasLink over budget. Combined with inflation in operations, may not see dividend increases going forward. A lot of revenues are contracted and protected.
Vermilion Energy Inc (VET-T) TSE
One of the most international oil names in Canada. Is vulnerable to crude oil prices moves, so it has pulled back lately. She only lightly invests in this area and isn't buying energy producers. Oil is too hard to forecast.
Yangarra Resources (YGR-T) TSE
There are aspects that will detract institutional ownership. There are some promotional aspects. The name is cheap and are paying down debt. It is not a name he is looking at. The quantitative and qualitative aspects need to match and for him it does not meet his requirements.
Razor Energy Corp (RZE-X) TSXV
Output should be higher in Q2 from Q1. 85% oil. Annual yield of about 7.5%, paid monthly. Going after oil in older fields. He'd like to start seeing volume growth. Likes management. He thinks oil will be above $70 over this winter, and this company will be throwing off a lot of cash.
Pason Systems Inc. (PSI-T) TSE
A small-cap that supplies information to oil/gas-drillers. Shares tanked when drilling ceased during early Covid, but have rebounded. They hold $200 million cash in the balance sheet, which is how they survived. Drilling levels have returned to 2015 levels. They have endured. Earning are way up and commands strong market share in Canada with some…
Calfrac Well Services Ltd (CFW-T) TSE
Not as bullish on energy services (not as much drilling). Good job at paying down debt. Capital allocation will ensure less activity in drilling services.
Obsidian Energy (OBE-T) TSE
Not a good investment with current management team. Other energy companies available with better opportunities.
Lucero Energy (LOU-X) TSXV
(A Top Pick Feb 23/22, Down 36%) Experienced management. In a hot geographical area for oil and gas, but investment moved away to more profitable areas when oil price declined. Working to ramp up production and strengthen balance sheet. Small cap, market's not interested. He's on the sidelines.
PetroShale (PSH-X) TSXV
Experienced management. Recently re-capitalized. Good balance sheet. 10,000 barrels a day. Can grow through drilling and through small acquisitions. Oil can bounce around, but they can still grow. Fairly significant cashflow at $75 oil, break even at $40. No dividend. (Analysts’ price target is $1.30)
Southern Energy Corp (SOU-X) TSXV
More volatile than he expected. Using enhanced technology to recover gas from existing fields. Production rate's pretty low, but gets a premium on price. Growing, with nice profile over next few years.
Would not buy at current share price.Too much investment into the sector will depress prices.Well run company, but saturated market.Strong management.If shares fall under $100, will look into buying.
Dorel Industries (DII.B-T) TSE
GreenFirst Forest Products (GFP-X) TSE
(A Top Pick Sep 07/21, Down 15%) Today it's cheap, versus long-term expectations. Trading in line with peers. Lumber companies have been trading sideways at best on fears of major slowdown in housing. They're discounting Armageddon, and he doesn't see that happening. IFP bought 16%, and they're not done.
Tidewater Midstream and Infrastructure Ltd (TWM-T) TSE
Trevor Rose’s Insights - Trevor’s most-liked answers from 5i Research. Recent earnings: EPS was a loss of 7c versus an expected gain of 3.2c. EBITDA did increase 12%, though. Cash flow per share increased 18%. Debt remains high at 2.9X EBITDA, though just within the company's targetted range. A couple of brokers lowered target prices on the results. While a…
good natured Products (GDNP-X) TSXV
It specializes in biodegradable plant based products for packaging. The management team has done really well and has delivered exactly like they said. It is expecting 100% growth, 50% organically and 50% by acquisition, in fact it made one today. It is cross selling products as well as new products. It is part of the…
Anaergia Inc. Subordinate Voting Shares (ANRG-T) TSE
Billy Kawasaki’s Insights - Billy’s most-liked answers from 5i Research. The company reported good sales growth, suggesting good adoption. Results missed estimates by $2M. There is opportunity here but expectations are high. Growing at nearly 50% and no reason for slowing growth. The stock has held well despite the miss. Unlock Premium - Try 5i Free
CubicFarm Systems (CUB-T) TSE
Billy Kawasaki’s Insights - Billy’s most-liked answers from 5i Research. CUB has a net cash position of about $16M, and sales are growing nicely. Sales are expected to go from $5M last year to $77M next year. It is, however, still losing money, and with negative cash flow (-$30.5M last year). The sector got hyped…
Gensource Potash (GSP-X) TSXV
We need potash, and demand will spike. Reticent to chase a small name like this. Look to a large cap. He likes NTR, which is reasonably priced, all things considered.
Indiva (NDVA-X) TSXV
Really good job of executing. Three major partnerships in edibles, more being added. Pivoted away from being a pure cultivator (a low-margin business, littered with bankruptcies) toward higher-margin end product sales. Rinse and repeat. Great market share.
New Flyer Industries Inc. (NFI-T) TSE
It made a lot of deals where buses were sold at fixed prices but its costs are higher now due to supply chain issues. The company will survive but has to re-negotiate with its banks, which is always painful. It is a good company in a bad situation, therefore look elsewhere.

Laramide Resources Ltd. (LAM-T) TSE
Chart shows a up pattern on the beginning of the year. Even though it had a nasty day today, the uptrend has not been violated. Has to get through about the $1.25 area before it can be considered a breakout. If you know the fundamentals and this matches them, it could be okay. (See Top…
Garibaldi Resources (GGI-X) TSXV
Its BC nickel play. Doesn't like GGI. Last year this was a darling stock, but their drill holes haven't impressed him.
Giga Metals Corp (GIGA-X) TSXV
Has a massive nickel deposit in northern British Columbia. Low grade, but can be mined as an open pit. The jury is out on this one. Looks intriguing.
Uranium Royalty Corp (URC-X) TSXV
Wonderful management team. Cashflow is like writing a blank cheque. Right now, hard to value because its cash is undeployed. In the next 2.5 years, investors will do well on the warrants because they will have taken on a lot of speculative risk and endured a lot of volatility.
Ur-Energy Inc. (URE-T) TSE
Uranium Stocks. Of the Juniors he likes this one and it has the most potential and the least risk in terms of balance sheet. Bringing a couple of assets into commercial production. He would not jump in after today’s run but otherwise it looks good.
Belo Sun Mining (BSX-T) TSE
They have a large Brazilian gold deposit. The problem here are indigenous people challenges there and a government contract that pays out a crazy amount to the managers. This payout is not aligned to the shareholders' interests. Then again, it's a cheap stock vs. gold in the ground.
Fortune Minerals Ltd. (FT-T) TSE
He met with management 7-8 years ago. The difficulty is that it’s been around since 1988 and revenues have always been a difficulty. They have no production. Expects there to be quite a bit of dilution. He doesn't invest in companies without revenues.
Wallbridge Mining Company (WM-T) TSE
(A Top Pick Mar 03/20, Down 28%) It operates in Quebec called Fenelon. The resource is there and they are very well-finance (Eric Sprott owns over 20%). Also, Kirkland Lake's CEO sits on the board and owns shares. Perhaps, the market is impatient, which has pressured shares, but WM is careful in moving forward.
Diamcor Mining Inc. (DMI-X) TSXV
It has been a disappointing stock to him. They have had some hiccups, but likes their asset base. The problem is that synthetic diamonds are taking away from overall demand. They have not been operating as well as they should have been. He might prefer Lucara Diamond (LUC-T).
IBC Advanced Alloys (IB-X) TSXV
Had owned this in the past. They operate in an interesting area and have a very interesting alloy, a combination of aluminum and others. They can make and cast extreme precision parts. The company expects to be profitable in the next couple of quarters. Have done a lot of things to improve their processes, and…
Westhaven Ventures Inc. (WHN-X) TSXV
Great managers. Have a gold discovery in BC. It's high-risk, high-reward. They got nice financing before the current market rout. It's a good speculation, but not for long-term investors.
Use this list wisely to identify buying opportunities.
Happy trading !!!
