Earnings from the Canadian Banks continue this week.
Another noteworthy earnings report that many are waiting for is Dollarama‘s. The DOL stock has been beaten up lately, hopefully it can show it’s still a growth stock. It’s set to report earnings on December 6th 2018.
Here’s the list of companies on the Canadian Stock Markets listed on Stockchase reporting earnings this week…
🛢 Basic Materials
African Gold Group (AGG-X) Dec-03
Very strong management. Initial drilling in Mali is very promising. Stock was crushed, but there has been no deterioration in the company. Extremely cheap.
Chesapeake Gold Corp (CKG-X) Dec-04
Could be a repeat of Francesco Gold which was a very large success. Good management team. The stock has become somewhat of a cult stock. Thinly traded. Good cash balance. Needs a lot of patience.
If you like basic materials, and think that they'll be in short supply, you want to participate in the picks and shovels. A mid-cap that looks good heading into a commodity cycle. No dividend. (Analysts’ price target is $10.00)
ADF Group (DRX-T) Dec-06
The chart looks good with nice volume. It's been trading sideways for a while. It looks like it's starting to fill in the drop that it has. It looks like it could go up $.20-$.30 with a stop-loss at $1.10.
Natural gas. Have announced some major deals with Crew Energy (CR-T) and West Energy (WTL-T) in the Montney region of British Columbia. Expects there will be production within the next year.
Sonoro Energy Ltd (SNV-X) Dec-03
Disclosure: He expressed interest in their private placement. He likes SNV because it is located in Sonoro, Mexico where there's been high historic gold production. They yield half-gram of gold per tonne. They will have a new preliminary economic assessment by end of June and are expected to go into production by end of 2021…
A conglomerate and he isn’t a big fan of this model. A well-known catalyst investor has just purchased about 19%. May sell of some weaker units.
A play that could be triple / quadruple. Optical chips for next, next generation. 100 Gig data rates. High risk.
Price target of $15, so not much room left. SaaS in the film industry, which has had a difficult time. He'd sell a third. If it goes up, that's OK. If it goes down, at least you sold a third.
It is a greener form of cement. They use a lighter form of concrete to be a base, instead of Styrofoam. The product is fairly new but well received so far. They will probably look at making acquisitions.
Just announced a discovery in Columbia. Flow tested over 2000 barrels per day. This well could produce up to 5000 when brought into production. A very well distributed stock so it might not jump too fast. Company could get taken out.
Bank of Montreal (BMO-T) Dec-04
Boring but you don't need to make things harder than they need to be. Banks have been trading below their historical multiple. They tend to do well in recovery, higher interest rates and steepening yield curve. Banks haven't been able to increase dividends or buy back stocks but this should change soon. BMO has good…
Fine as a holding. But the majors are cheap enough, and they'll move first. Slightly higher losses coming to CWB because of the oil patch. It's a hold. Wouldn't worry about the dividend too much, but he'd prefer one of the majors at this stage.
Laurentian Bank (LB-T) Dec-05
An outlier in Canadian banking, a small regional player. They're cleaning house among management and trimming costs, but that's tricky because they're hemmed into one region, Quebec. LB is trying to go entirely virtual; LB has a lot of physical branches and moving hard to virtual. This dramatic change has effected their business. New managers…
Thinks of best business first, and then country second. His clients own National Bank, TD, RY, and JPM. Best banks with the best management teams. Jaime Dimon at JPM is the very best. In Canada, his favourite is always National, with smart acquisitions and growing in wealth management. All Canadian banks are under-levered. You have…
Hudson Bay Co. (HBC-T) Dec-05
Nicknames it Hit By A Car like its chart. HBC is all about its real estate holdings; that's the reason you own this. Doesn't know if the current rally signals a buy. Can't predict this chart. Even consider selling it.
Dollarama Inc (DOL-T) Dec-06
Allan Tong’s Discover Picks Dollarama sells cheap stuff and has enjoyed a near-monopoly on selling household goods during these lockdowns. No argument that DOL has done very well. It peaked December 9 at $54.58 November 1, just shy of its all-time high. DOL stock has since peeled back 10%. It continues to enjoy a strong…
Input Capital Corp (INP-X) Dec-06
They do canola mainly. At these prices the stock is so cheap. He sold because he was not seeing enough capital being deployed in Canola streams.
Reitmans (RET-T) Dec-06
He owned it at $3.81 and sold it at $3.00 and is glad he did. Management is getting old and stodgy. As the stock has been thrashed following the share buyback program, he thinks the balance sheet still looks okay, but the cash position is not as good. Last quarter they lost a lot of…
(A Top Pick Jun 18/18, Up 1%) Still likes it. It's well-run. They're growing their brands and they have a big opportunity to get into cannabis beverages which will be legal in Canada in October 2019. BRB is well-positioned for this and this market could be very large.
Le Chateau Inc (A) (CTU-X) Dec-07
This has been a very difficult stock. Recently reported a very bad quarter. He would stay away from this one. Inventory has gone up a lot and their margins have fallen. Cut the dividend totally. Thinks they are in a bit of trouble.
Happy trading !
