🛢 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.
Industry sees them as a well-regarded, very competitive firm. He doesn't normally own process and service stocks. No objection to someone adding. Pretty attractive margins and market share.
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.
BF-N vs. CE-X. BASF is the world's largest chemical company. It sells at a high premium. There is concern that prices are too high to last.
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 play that could be triple / quadruple. Optical chips for next, next generation. 100 Gig data rates. High risk.
Trevor Rose’s Insights - Trevor’s most-liked answers from 5i Research EPS of 20c missed estimates of 22.5c. Sales of $125.8M beat estimates of $120.5M. Sales and earnings rose nicely. Cash is now $27M. It was a decent quarter, but there has been no long-term growth here. Even with a bounce this year, EPS will be…
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
Canadian banks are reasonably priced, but still headwinds on loan losses. He likes the one with the best balance sheet, TD. He also likes CM, with its outsized dividend yield and low valuation. BMO is OK.For the heavy lifting in your portfolio, he'd look instead at insurance companies with similar yields and more growth over…
Fate of energy sector directly impacts success of company.High exposure to energy industry through lending.Does not own shares - too risky.Large Canadian banks better for defensive investors.
Laurentian Bank (LB-T) Dec-05
It has a good presence in Quebec. They are interested in selling but he doesn't see who would buy them.
Best performer of the Big 6, doing well on wealth management in custodial services. She chose banks that were more geographically diversified. Likes banks as a whole due to the pullback. Valuation is at a higher multiple than others. She's sticking with her choices, but has no problem adding a small position in this one.
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
Phenomenal. Well managed, continues to execute. Trend toward dollar stores with inflation being high. Continues to expand, gain market share, and increase geographic footprint. Wait for a pullback, buy, and then keep holding.
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
Trevor Rose’s Insights - Trevor’s most-liked answers from 5i Research. There are no analysts/estimates for RET.A, insiders owns around 57% of the company. 4Q sales increased by 11.4%. Marketing helped store traffic but higher costs and macro headwinds hurt the quarter.Comparable sales rose 12.7%, with e-commerce sales 34% of the total. The 4Q profit was also…
(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 !
