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
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.
He doesn't own any drilling stocks. As economy recovers and more resources are needed, drilling companies will do better. Would prefer Trinidad (TDG-T) because of the yield. Use a stoploss at the 50-day moving average, but once you see the market rollover, exit and take your profit.
ADF Group (DRX-T) Dec-06
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
He likes management. They have a big land area in Indonesia. It looks like a very interesting story but he is waiting for a meeting with management.
Looks for and acquires undervalued Canadian companies. Uses public market valuation and private market valuation, which has a big spread between them, and arbitrages them.
Involved in fibre-optics to the home. Interesting new technology. Would not buy until it is closer to the time when their first chips start coming out in ’07 and then wait to see if they can ramp up volume production.
This stock is perpetually in the $16-$18 range, because the owners generally pay out earnings in the form of dividends. The yield is backed by a 76% payout ratio – a little high, but sustainable. Overall, a decent ROE and good cash flow, but he believes there are better opportunities in this dividend space. Yield…
Enterprise network largely for oil/gas companies and suppliers for processing payments, purchase orders and receivables online, which eliminates paper/staffing. Also has connectivity to Blackberry for field work. About $2 million revenue growth but at the turning point of ramping this up.
Gas play in Guatemala and Colombia. Have a lot of land blocks near where Petrominerales (PMG-T) hit. Just drilled a well with a fairly large target in Guatemala and found oil at a much higher area than expected. Cased the well and we'll hear more next week. Highly speculative.
Bank of Montreal (BMO-T) Dec-04
They own Royal Bank (RY-T) and TD (TD-T). They changed the CEO recently. It has done a good job in the last while. The problem with Canadian Banks is the they are not as cheap as the US banks. The good thing is that they continue to grow their dividends and are very well capitalized.…
The whole banking sector is quite positive. The chart shows a little head and shoulders. If it can break above $32, it would probably run away pretty nicely. He likes the whole financial sector. (See Top Picks.)
Laurentian Bank (LB-T) Dec-05
If he was going to buy a bank it would be this. He's seeking dividend companies. He bought it in December at $39.56 with a 6.6% dividend. It has a good chance of rising above $50 again. Since then, he has bought more. But he wouldn't buy--or sell--it at today's price, though.
National Bank vs. Laurentian Bank Laurentian, because their mortgage debacle has dragged down the stock until it's now the cheapest Canadian bank. National isn't trading as much at a discount as its peers (as LB), and it also has the biggest exposure to Canadian oil, which is a red flag.
Hudson Bay Co. (HBC-T) Dec-05
(A Top Pick November 6/17 - Down 3%) He likes the fac that you have 30 plus dollars’ worth of real estate there. Rising interest rates has effectively taken up the capitalization rate for the real estate. The retail is doing far worse than expected. Don’t own it anymore. He thinks there is more upside…
Dollarama Inc (DOL-T) Dec-06
A safe, defensive investment. They have 1,100 stores, so they're by far the leader in Canada which is less competitive than the US. The share price is down a lot, but is trading at 19X earnings now instead of the previous 30x. They could buy Dollar City in Latin America (an option for them in…
Input Capital Corp (INP-X) Dec-06
There are always big expectations for cash flow coming from grains, and then it never actually comes. It looks like they are on the up and up now, but be careful because they could have some earnings misses as well. He wouldn’t own this until they could show that they could generate cash flows and…
Reitmans (RET-T) Dec-06
Retail markets is a tough area to be in right now so you should plan to hold for 5 years or more. Good quality retailer but will struggle with everybody else. About 8% dividend yield.
What normally happens with the smaller brewers is that they get taken out. He likes the company, but doesn’t follow it closely. A good story with good earnings growth.
Le Chateau Inc (A) (CTU-X) Dec-07
Current inventories are selling very well and profits are very large. Stock has been off the map but is now rising. Selling at 6/7 X this year's earnings.
Happy trading !
