Here are the stocks hitting their 52-week high….
(A Top Pick Apr 08/21, Down 4%) Very specific and good at what they do. Unique assets that tie in to smaller businesses like tech firms. Management's one of the best. "The Well" is leased up completely, and will add to earnings.
The Safeway transaction was very good for Crombite and they're starting to see the benefits. The $200 Bought Deal at $17.45 was a good transaction above NAV. Very good at capital management.
Likes the industrial REITs through and post-pandemic. Great assets. Problem is valuation, plus he's never like the external management contract. See his Top Picks.
Likes it. Great space. Canada, US, Europe. Today's the day you want to have growing industrial exposure in Europe, despite the political and recession risk. Industrial space is still doing well in Europe, and is playing catch up to NA.
Diversified portfolio and has done good job of rationalizing it. Will it be able to close the gap to NAV? A 'show me' story.
Sold because the apartment rental theme going into the pandemic had run its course. Higher utility costs, but lagging on increasing rents. Provincial rent control. Need large scale to counteract margin compression. Excellent managers. Valuation high.
The best way to play the strongest and tightest market in NA, and that's the industrial market, specifically in Montreal. Track record of creating value. Good takeout candidate at some point. Trading at a wide discount to NAV. Yield is 2.7%. (Analysts’ price target is $24.94)
Billy Kawasaki’s Insights - Billy’s most-liked answers from 5i Research. A decent company and the stock price is decently cheap. The dividend has not been changed since being lowered in 2016. Shares have not passed 2011 levels. An income investment. Unlock Premium - Try 5i Free
He owns the bonds. Retail nature doesn't fit his criteria. One of the better retail assets out there, anchored by WMT, a very strong tenant. Adding condos, rentals, and developments. He's hesitant to get back into retail. Not a bad entry point.
A portfolio of US properties. It also has some interesting properties around the DVP area in Toronto. The CEO is one of the few people that not only knows how to buy, but also how to sell. Thinks that at some point, he will sell the entire company if he can, or bit by bit.
They generate electivity and sell it. As we move in this direction this company will have a foothold and niche. It is a capital intensive business and interest rates rising will be a problem.
Good producer. He owns the preferred shares. His favourites in the space include AQN, FTS, and BIP.UN. Nothing wrong with INE. Focus is more wind-focused, so growth profile is not as diversified. Balance sheet is not as strong.
Billy Kawasaki’s Insights - Billy’s most-liked answers from 5i Research. Would be fine to move on from this. The balance sheet and cash flow have weakened. Could buy WSP as an alternative. Unlock Premium - Try 5i Free
(A Top Pick July 3/15. Down 43.04%.) Sold his holdings at around $5.50, and lost money. Their business continues to grow, and this is one that he continues to watch. There is lots of promise here.
Management sees great opportunities ahead. Wants to make more renewable landfill gas sites. Benefits from higher oil prices. Defensive, safe. Excellent management, clean balance sheet. He expects double-digit revenue growth for many years. Also a reopening play. The dual listing is a gift to Canadian investors. (Analysts’ price target is $178.80)
(A Top Pick Aug 25/21, Down 14%) It is in the U.S. and has hit 2X Book Value. It is acting like a tech stock but the demand for surgeries is still there. In general the U.S. healthcare business is an expensive market.
Enbridge (ENB-T) TSE
ENB vs. PPL He picks ENB, as it's bigger, financially stronger, better diversified, more last-mile downstream exposure. Small, but burgeoning, renewables business could drive a re-rating on the stock as ESG takes a look.
Junior company that is basically raising money to explore for uranium. Sometimes takes years to find a deposit. Have to be patient. Some interesting prospects in the Athabascan basin. Pretty strong drill program for the first half of 2008. On negative days, you could pick some up for a short-term trade.(Buy uranium stocks when uranium…
Believes company is very predictable which results in consistent earnings. Company is a good hedge against volatility in the market. Ability for company to raise dividend is a major strength.
(A Top Pick Apr 28/21, Down 67.4%) Are building online grocery sales now. When he recommended it, he expected another leg up--and shares rose last summer on good numbers. But he sold this around $10 because he was concerned the company was no longer focusing on meal kits and was spending a lot to enter…
🛢 Basic Materials
There is no dividend. Sales are up but earnings are less negative rather than positive. Earnings growth forecast for this year is zero.
$2.25 price target. Growing pains starting up a mine. He'd be averaging down. Issues always signal a really good entry point at cheap valuations. Have to be patient. This wouldn't be his only holding; he'd own it amongst at least 5-10 companies.
They just partnered with a private equity group. The company is now 45% owned by private equity. They completed their first pour in the Yukon and are moving towards commercial production. The problem is the private equity partner will have a lot of say in the operations. This will keep him out as an investor.
(A Top Pick Feb 25/21, Up 15.3%)Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O’Reilly With the recent completed acquisition by AEM now official, we now consider this position closed. When combined with the previous recommendation to cover half the position, this results in a net investment gain of 22%.
SIL vs. MAG Both world-class deposits. At current prices, he likes both. Complication around MAG is that there's only one obvious bidder. SIL seems to get better and better, as they get farther along the development curve. He owns both, and both are in Buy range today.
Defensive telecom and cable. Regional. Dominant cable operator. New cell phone competitor with 21% market share, but the fastest growing. Small sports/entertainment division. No commodity exposure and minimal wage inflation, as it's capital- and tech-intensive. Strong balance sheet. Interesting reinvestment catalysts out of Rogers-Shaw deal. Yield is 4.11%. (Analysts’ price target is $35.31)
Does not own shares in company. Believes Shaw deal will go through & will be good for shareholders. High quality infrastructure assets. Good time to be buying with recent market selloff.
Shareholder friendly. Front and centre with outsourcing and consulting as more companies go digital. Wind at its back. Strong acquisitions and in buybacks. Attractive valuation at 16x earnings and free cashflow yield of more than 7%. Defensive in a tough market. No dividend. (Analysts’ price target is $122.57)
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.
Here’s this week’s 52-week low stocks ….
He stayed away because they went to the states to make acquisitions. He did not know why the Americans would not already take these assets. He stays away from it.
Debt concerns? BXE took bankruptcy protection when debt became too much. There is no equity value in it any longer. Companies that have debt that matures in 2020 or 2021 will have issues. He sees no issues with BIR or TVE on this topic. The new Federal relief program for large companies may be difficult…
One of the few small cap energy stocks that doesn't own (hard to buy meaningful positions). Inexpensive stock that is trading at 1.8x cash flow and 35% free cash flow yield. Expecting company to be debt free this time next year. Hold shares if already own them.
They've fallen into a tough time due to supply chain issues. They are bleeding cash. 9% of shares are shorted because the street expects them to raise equity at a terrible time which will dilute existing shares. They remain a well-run business, a successful Canadian company. They generate over $2 billion revenues. They have an…
The biggest independent zinc producer has had its ups and downs. The new CEO has to navigate 2020, which was tough. Zinc prices have jumped to US$1.25/lb. TV's cost structure is based on $1.10-1.15. TV trades at a deep discount. Zinc doesn't capture the imagination like copper or nickel, though. Zinc prices have benefited from…
It looks interesting, but is too small for his funds. It has under-performed for the past few years. They are in the right place at the right time, but we need to see some good drill results soon.
First Cobalt (FCC-X) TSXV
Cobalt is attractive but this is not a cheap producer, because they're in Canada and not Russia or Congo.
In Western Africa, this miner is looking for funding. It is not the exciting part of the cycle as they are in the de-risking mode. Investors are looking for projects that double resources. Institutional investors are not yet stepping in the space.
(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.
A large continental deposit, but there are political problems in Colombia. Are also concerns over cost overruns, can be managed. Worth buying overall.
Gold companies remain cheap vs. the price of gold itself. There's a lot of room for upside. He's been taking profits to gold names to add new gold stocks to his portfolio (he specializes in precious metals). This is a hold with an $18 target. ELD has had a nice run.
On the sidelines until the CEO impresses him; he's having implementation challenges. He's staying on the sidelines for now. Great CEO though.
Listed in Canada but operations are in the far east. Is cautious because of high debt and accounting is weird. If you are betting gold will go a lot higher it is a pretty decent bet but if not it can decline a lot.
Has an old mine outside of Los Angeles that was run in the 1930s. Closed down during the Second World War and they are doing open pit mining in the area. Has some issues, but at these gold prices, it will probably start to work again. Under followed. Highly speculative.
(A Top Pick Dec 15/20, Up 12%) Taken over. He got out when the deal was announced, as the acquirer wasn't somewhere he wanted to put his money.
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”.
Has been a bit of a disaster. Mine in Texas is not going ahead, resource was not properly done. The reserves are not what they expected.
Likes this company. Chinese have taken a 20% interest which is significant. Also have a good play in Northern B.C.
(A Top Pick Oct 07/20, Down 7%) Not long after making the recommendation the stock benefited from a lot of ETF buying. They exited on the strong buying on a much higher gain. Since then, the ETF buying has evaporated and the stock price has come back down.
Spoke to the CEO recently. Have a nice little business. Kind of a service provider to utilities and telcos. Write software pieces that help them send bills to their customers. The trouble is, they don’t have one source of revenue, sort of a patch of many different things. Also, they are capital constrained and need…
Owned it a few years ago and cut his losses. Now, cut your losses. This business is struggling as an asset manager, specifically to retain and attract new clients. Also, their key managers, including the CEO, have been leaving. They won't generate much in performance fees, which has been an attraction for investors in the…
They have a fair bit of cash in the bank. Being a smaller company it suffers more from pirated content on the Internet. It was a really well run company. They had a lot of cash in the bank.
Use this list wisely to identify buying opportunities.
Happy trading !!!
