Bombardier Inc (B) (BBD.B-T) TSE
He's been watching it, as it's regained momentum. Streamlined from its legacy business, now focused entirely on private aircraft. Business prospects are getting better. Private aircraft are big-ticket, discretionary. Order book could get cold if corporate profits decline. Facts have changed, he's changed his mind, and the company is now investment-grade at least.
Bird Construction Income Fund (BDT-T) TSE
Question was on comparing Aecon to Bird. They have good yields of 5%. Backlogs are not as meaningful in this environment. Construction costs are up and there are still supply chain issues. Bird is in a better situation since it has fewer fixed costs.
Stella-Jones Inc. (SJ-T) TSE
(A Top Pick Mar 29/22, Up 36%) A leading producer of railway ties and utility poles.

A defensive growth stock trading…
5N Plus (VNP-T) TSE
Volatile. Not easy to understand. Engineered materials mainly for the solar industry. They've diversified. A recent acquisition may be transformative, wait and see. Hold if you own it. He's revisiting it. He prefers NEO, as a cheap way to play the EV market.

WSP Global Inc. (WSP-T) TSE
One of the better, if not the best, managed in the group. If you own it for the long term, hold on. Add on any setbacks. He'd seriously consider a position if price was 10-15% less. Company's doing well.
GFL Environmental Inc. (GFL-T) TSE
Are in a great space, a growth area in industrials. But their debt is too high and explains their volatility. They grow by acquiring, which adds to debt. Managed well, though.

Very affordable tech name.Company has done very good job building shareholder value.Trading around 16X 2024 EPS.Wait to buy shares on weakness.

IGM Financial Inc. (IGM-T) TSE

Osisko Gold Royalties Ltd. (OR-T) TSE
(A Top Pick Jan 05/23, Up 4%) Pretty strong dividend, which he's bullish on right now. One of the best charts in the gold space, if not the best. Doesn't hesitate to recommend.

Here’s this week’s 52-week lows stocks on Stockchase…
🛢 Basic Materials
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.
Integra Resources (ITR-X) TSXV
Likes the managers, but concerned with the topography. A decent-sized gold project. A good speculation.
Scorpio Gold Corp. (SGN-X) TSXV
It's a 10 cent stock, when even the big companies aren't doing well. If you like it, sure go ahead. But there's nothing he can add.
Metallis Resources (MTS-X) TSXV
A great young team. It’s too early to say what sort of success they’re going to have. Their early implementation of their royalty/streaming business plan has been absolutely flawless, but you have to understand that it is a new company/young team risk.
First Mining Finance Corp (FF-T) TSE
(Market Call Minute.) Great execution with a $500 million market cap. Thinks it is ahead of itself. It is expensive.
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…
Moneta Porcupine Mines (ME-T) TSE
A very large, low grade deposit. It has a little over 1 million ounces M&I, and probably 3 in inferred resources. A real, sketchy sort of deposit in that the mineralization is spotty. If you were to try to mine this as an open pit, your waste to ore ratio would be extremely high, especially…
Mountain Province Diamonds Inc. (MPVD-T) TSE
Sees no change to the dividend theory. The 3 Irish business millionaires actually control the company and are holding it long-term for the dividends. The company has some costs going on disadvantaging it. The diamond sector itself has not produced really stellar performance. This is a “wait and see”.
Canasil Resources Inc. (CLZ-X) TSXV
Has a silver discovery in the Durango area of Mexico. It is a joint venture with Orex (REX-X) earning in. They are carried for 35% once Orex has earned in. A very interesting project. They drilled into an alteration zone and hit good mineralization which is fairly consistent and looks like it is averaging 2-250…
Scandium International Mining (SCY-T) TSE
He's learning as much as he can about this stock. He's nervous about little markets with great, big technogical promise. This could be a good market performer this year. Perhaps own this for the long-term, but knuckle down and learn what this company does with aluminum alloy technology.
Orex Minerals (REX-X) TSXV
(Top Pick Jul 13/11, Down 8.69%) Funding issue. Venture is down about 38%. Exploration companies have come off the most. Smaller company that didn’t have a lot of cash. Two days ago they came up with a huge whole with 1.3 grams. If you have a long-term perspective, wait until they do their funding.
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…

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.
Aurora Cannabis (ACB-T) TSE
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 (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.

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…
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.
Transcontinental Inc. (A) (TCL.A-T) TSE
Longer-term downtrend, the opposite of what the market's a doing in a negative way. It's a big sign that something is not moving in the right direction. Be cautious.

Cargojet Inc (CJT-T) TSE

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.

CEO recently buying back stock himself.$70 oil would equate to $700 million in free cash flow.Bough 4mm shares last week.Has ownership in Clearwater play - the most economic play in North America.
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.
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.
Polaris Infrastructure (PIF-T) TSE
Allan Tong’s Discover Picks Companies like Polaris trade at high PEs (102.44x), but that’s par for the course. Another caveat is that PIF is a small-cap of only $344 million, so it can be vulnerable to market mood swings—and we’ve had no shortage of that. PIF pays a steady dividend of 5%, which investors can…
Use this list wisely to identify buying opportunities.
Happy trading !!!
