This week, a lot of REITS are hitting their 52-week high along with some defensive names such as Metro, up again. Basic materials and energy have taken a hit, many ending up on the 52-week low list.
Here’s this weeks 52-week high and low list for companies listed on Stockchase.
Here are the stocks hitting their 52-week high….
(A Top Pick Nov 12/15. Up 5.27%.) Really unique properties, probably the best landholdings of any of the REITs. As the economy moves, the growth we have seen in the past just won’t be there in the future. It will probably take 3 or 4 quarters before the growth stabilizes.
He likes that their portfolio has a lot of development potential, especially in the Safeway portfolio that they purchased. The market however has been very harsh on this because of their relation with the Empire group and the grocery debacle. He doesn’t think the grocery is going to fail. This means you are buying a…
He is a little wary of REITs right now. Valuations are excessive. You are paying 15 to 16 times cash flow. There is a lot of risk if interest rates ever start to move higher. The Calgary real estate market is not turning around in a hurry.
This has gone through a transition. It had significant exposure to Magna (MG-T) being a dominant tenant, accounting for about 80% of its NOI, which is still the case. Since 2011-2012, they’ve only done a couple of acquisitions, totaling about $100 million, which is unfortunate, because they have a very well capitalized balance sheet. That…
No, retail is not going out of fashion. HR will work out okay and will grind out a slowly growing dividend. The fear out there is that Amazon will destroy all retail--but that's unfounded. Also, HR diversifies into building condos too. A safe dividend, but with modest growth prospects.
He likes management. Their ability to increase distributions will be there as their more aggressive development plan starts kicking in. They have a number of large-scale developments, which have taken a bit longer, but the dividend will increase over time. More importantly is the amount of growth you can get in earnings when you are…
Because this is a bit small as an industrial, he does not invest in this REIT. He thinks there will be good solid growth this year in the industrial market, especially in the GTA. This one has low Alberta exposure and more GTA exposure. A good place to be. He is starting to see rent…
Loves it. Has long owned it. The typical Canadian has been in 3 of 4 of the stores they own in the last month. Very well-diversified. The death of retail (malls) has passed them well, and Smart has performed well.
Recent IPO that he did not participate in. He was concerned with some of the tenant concentration and, one building in particular, where there was a head lease on the building which meant that the occupancy and the rents were being guaranteed, even though they were operating at well below what the company considered normalized.…
Seasonality for utilities is just about to start in June. The bottom in February is really indicative of a lot of utility companies. Chart shows a nice nascent trend. If we get above $4, this will usher in a lot of new buyers. Thinks there is pretty good upside potential on this.
(A Top Pick Sept 28/11. Up 22.45%.) Getting close to being fully valued and he is starting to Sell it. Has had phenomenal growth and is very conservatively managed. Doesn’t see much upside so is basically holding it for its yield.
(A Top Pick September 27, 2017. Up 10%). This is a stock that people love to hate, because an influential short-seller talks about it repeatedly. That has put a lid on the stock, but the company itself keeps coming through. The company had a bad quarter in the first quarter of last year, but has…
It is not fabulous value and its fair market value is much lower, yet it has shown a technical breakout and is giving a technical buy.
(A Top Pick Dec 11/17, Up 21%) Pays over 7% dividend. This stock could really go. They own little surgical hospitals and outpatient clinics. They have a deal where doctors own the real estate and manage, while they share in the profits with DR. A very good model
Enbridge (ENB-T) TSE
The chart looked good and he bought it around $46.50. He would exit if the price falls to his buying price. It’s looking good for the time being and he’s happy with the recent shot up.
In the Athabascan Basin, which has the highest uranium deposits in the world. Drill-ready targets. High risk and very speculative. Good management.
Produces about 3% free cash flow yield, which translates into $287 million worth of free cash flow over the last 12 months. Trades at 0.9 Enterprise Value to Trailing Sales, versus 6% year-over-year sales growth, so the EV to sales to sales growth is .15 which is a C+ compared to the database. Dividend yield…
They have about 40% of the market. They disclosed there are up to 31k subscribers. They just went public in June. They are full of cash and now increasing their distribution facility in Montreal 10 fold. They will open a facility out west next year. It would make sense for a large grocer to acquire…
🛢 Basic Materials
Looking at this right now. An absolutely tremendous payout. He doesn’t know the company well enough to Buy into it, but he loves dividends. This company is giving money back all the time. 9% dividend yield.
A smart group of guys. They are putting a fair bit of work into proving their concept is right. They seem to be backing up their thesis. It is looking like it is working so far.
Yukon. He hopes they fail and that they can’t put it into production for 4 years when gold is higher.
This has been the best performer in the portfolio. He has taken some money off the table. He expects it to continue to move. Good reserves and good production. A solid name. Yield = 0.35% (Analysts’ price target is $51.22)
Silvercrest Metals (SIL-T) or Silvercorp Metals (SVM-T)? This one is a fairly small deposit, but with high quality people.
Videotron 7.125% Jan 15, 2020 Bond. Credit metrics of an investment grade bond. They are the cable providers of Quebec. They have to push their profits up to QBR.B-T, but in the case of any insolvency of QBR, Videotron is made whole. The biggest risk is that they would be the 4th big player out…
A very defensive space, telcos. Not a growth stock, but pays income. He prefers BCE, because it just finished a big capex cycle and pays a higher dividend. Also, wireless penetration in Canada is limited, which in turn limits growth. That said, all the Canadian telcos are good for the long-term. Buy for the dividend,…
(A Top Pick Apr 04/18, Up 25%) It always grows organically. The knock against it is that grows modestly at 1-3%. They buyback shares and occasionally do tuck-in acqusitions. But their growth rate has accelerated despite Brexit and American trade issues; they still get the deals they want in those territories. It's trading at higher…
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.
Here’s this week’s 52-week low stocks ….
Chart shows this has taken quite a dip in the last while. Changes in management because of production mishaps. Need to look at these from both a production standpoint and a commodity standpoint. Have a constrained balance sheet and not a lot of room to raise CapX for growth. More linked to oil than to…
LNG Canada is coming on in 2023 – a long time to protect the balance sheet. He does not like the level of debt as it handcuffs any financial gains. He would not own this.
It is his dividend play today. It is a cheap stock. There is a dividend of about 7%. His one year target is $3.70. He owns the stock personally. They have a low payout ratio. (Analysts’ price target is $2.13)
He's not sure why, but the chart is in a long-term downtrend since 2018. In contrast, the TSX has gone up while NFI has gone down. A year ago, he advised taking profits. Now, sell.
Not highly valued becasue they mine low-grade (mostly zinc) assets. That said, he recently picked up some of TV-T as bargain-basement shopping and expecting a bounce. There's upside here though with some risk. The balance sheet is good without net debt, but the assets are not the best. It's a trade. If the US-China trade…
Located in Québec. Have had early good exploration results. What they are drilling trends under a Lake so they will be doing some winter drilling program on the ice. There could be an economic deposit.
First Cobalt (FCC-X) TSXV
He doesn’t know their financials. The company is trying to revive a historic mining area in Ontario. This type of work takes a lot of money and might require First Cobalt to issue more shares, driving down the price. Alternatively, they might take on a lot of debt, which carries its own problems. Cobalt is…
Gold in Burkina Faso. Good management. His probabilities of success are very good based on management's previous success in selling a gold mine. Have started drilling. Speculative.
Gold and silver. Have over 1 million gold ounces in Sweden. Very cheap. Hit some targets in Mexico at about 180 and 270 g per ton. Just signed a joint deal. A lot of upside in this story. Very cheap.
Continues to add to the position today. $105 Million in cash. Very rich deposit in Columbia. Has very high grade gold showings and PGM credits. Will continue to drill this year and deliver this year. Deposit could grow a heck of a lot bigger over the next couple of years.
Has some very good assets, but unfortunately in some difficult environments, Greece being front and centre. Probably trades at a 30%-40% discount to its peers. A very low cost producer and great margins. Material growth down the road over the next 5 years. Unfortunately, they are in a bit of a battle with the more…
Have a joint venture with Hawkshield down in Argentina. A good project. They are in production which is good. Good management. These types of stocks will have the best bounce in a higher gold price environment.
Doesn't know the stock that well but based on what he does know, it's in a favourable place. Undervalued. If the mining cycle continues, you should see good performance out of this one.
Has a very good project in China. If you are okay with investing in China, there are two companies that stand out, this one and Sino Gold. Not a fan of China.
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.
Believes the share price will either increase in 2018 or one of the West African consolidators will take them over. Either of those will be a nice outcome for owners of this.
This is not the first bear market he has seen. This is the next new big mine. Diamonds have been going thought a bit of a dry spell. There were finance issues. The rough market for diamonds is up a little right now. He prefers to go in at a little earlier stage. He believes…
Has been a phenomenal success over the last year. They acquired a producing silver/lead/zinc mine in Mexico. They're very close to being in production. Just announced an option on a 2nd past producing mine in Mexico.
Likes this company. Chinese have taken a 20% interest which is significant. Also have a good play in Northern B.C.
It's been a tough performer the past year, compounded in the last month. They had a satellite crash and lost on those contracted revenues--to add to their woes. They carry a lot of debt. It'll be a long road for them. They face competitors, too.
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…
An asset manager that operates in the high net worth space. The demographics are great. Family assets are growing more quickly than lower net worth households. Also, client relationships tend to be longer-term and stickier, due to the nature of the services offered. The stock is discounted because of long-term litigation with the founders, which…
Down 24% in the last year. It got way ahead of itself. He has been accumulating shares and is the second biggest shareholder. Now in the low $2s it is attractive. 4% dividend.
Use this list wisely to identify buying opportunities.
Happy trading !!!
