This week’s new 52-week highs and lows… (Jan 16-22)
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 recovery story. Best in class, best assets. Theme of stay at home will wane. There's a more hybrid solution, and its stable of smaller tech and healthcare tenants will benefit. Trades at a 15% discount to NAV. Yield is 4.04%. (Analysts’ price target is $45.23)
Killam vs. Crombie REITs Killam holds apartments, an asset class he really likes among REITs. Rent-collection rates are really high for Killam, so no worries about that. All these REITs trade at a 10-15% discount to NAV. Funding costs will drop 1%, because they get funding from CMHC. A hiccup comes from mobile homes which…
Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly DIR is a leading dividend payer that will benefit with the re-opening of the economy. It has a great yield, backed by a payout ratio under 50% of cash flow. It trades at 10x earnings compared to peers at 17x and is valued at just 1.2x book value. Good value…
Allan Tong’s Discover Picks Further, Granite pays a 3.53% dividend yield based on an ultra-safe 30% payout ratio. While its EPS growth is declining, at $9.82 it still towers over the sector’s $1.68 and has jumped nearly 30% over the previous year. Granite trades at a PE of 8.7x vs. the sector’s 34.1x while its…
It is a large, diversified REIT. It is recovering from the pandemic. It is trading $3-4 below its pre-COVID high. It is a good one to hold on to.
There are other ways to do real estate. He likes Tricon. He thinks there might be a continued setback for student residences. Tricon has housing in the US where there is demand for their houses.
Likes it and its sector. Trade at a healthy premium. In the right markets. Growth has traditionally been there. Fairly valued today. Look for pullbacks to buy.
Bond-like, they're very good at mezzanine and commercial lending. They distribute what they get and are conservatively balanced (balance sheet). They know their markets. It's like a mortgage-lending situation. They earn 7% rates of return, no more or less. A very stable investment, acting like a bond proxy. (Analysts’ price target is $9.96)
It is a great company. There is not necessarily a grocery component in their centers. It is trading on parity with net asset value. It has the lowest earnings growth amongst its peers and so he is not looking to own this stock today. The yield is solid, however.
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.
Produces green power. Likes it. Trades at much higher multiples than Polaris. Would chose Polaris in the sector, but INE is a solid player in the sector.
More a derivative of infrastructure, as it services construction assets. Likes management. Still upside over the next 1-2 years. If you want steadier cashflows and less lumpiness, look elsewhere.
(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.
Allan Tong’s Discover Picks Of course, nobody knew that a once-in-a-century pandemic would trigger that recession, but WCN survived the pandemic to emerge with a 21.1% gain since my original pick. This figure excludes the dividend, which currently pays 0.67%, and it beats the TSX by 5%. Read Looking back after 100 weeks of Hot…
Owns it in income growth. Dividend halted with the pandemic. Non-necessary medical procedures were delayed, and now they're coming back rapidly. Dividend will be restored. Stock should at least get north of $10.
Enbridge (ENB-T) TSE
Bought more during the market panic back in 2020. Feels ENB is more of a utility type stock than an energy stock. The pipelines were in the utility index before. They make their money on volume, not the price of gas. Low risk holding. Get growth when they can build new pipelines. Great yield, just…
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…
Defensive. Underperformed the broader TSX since last March. He prefers the cyclicals. Very competitive industry, low margins. 16x forward earnings, 8% long-term growth rate. Headwinds ahead of it, such as massive competitors and higher wages.
Selling off post-pandemic, grossly exaggerated. Trading at a massive discount to HelloFresh. Pivoting to online groceries and building the brand, so it's going after a much bigger market than just meal kits, which still has a lot of growth. Subscriber count down, but basket size up. Long runway for growth, but they can't ignore growing…
🛢 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 core intermediate gold producer. They own the largest Canadian gold mine and have a reputation for running high-grade mines like Fosterville in Australia. Their Detour acquisition was meant to stabilize their production base. He believes in management. It's about generating strong free cash flow to fund their new shaft, the Macassa Mine, which is…
They had a sound model on where the gold was and now they found more. The management team are great. They are in Northern Mexico. He thinks the permit will not be an issue. It is at a very high multiple due to their silver assets.
Pre-COVIC, he saw that tech was going to pop, and now the puck is heading to boring value names, like Quebecor. Has an 11% growth rate and trades at 12.6x 2021. Its a very cheap telco and have a lot of cash to return to shareholders and raise the dividend if they wish. Their wireless…
Big fan of telecoms, though they didn't deliver last year as expected. Telecoms are very defensive and operate in an oligopoly. RCI is OK, but not as keen on it compared to others in the space. Least enthusiastic about cable. Ton of risk on the Shaw deal.
(A Top Pick Jun 24/20, Up 32%) Impacted by Covid. Bookings are starting to ramp up. Still value at this price point.
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…
Consolidation of the small and mid-cap names is an important theme. There are better names to own in the space.
Winnipeg busmaker was once a Bay Street darling, then production numbers tanked before Covid sent the stock went into purgatory. Emerging from the lockdown, though, NFI is now in a good position to capitalize on the e-vehicle trend. The busmaker is rolling out more zero-emission vehicles, which cities across North American will favour under the…
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.
Billy Kawasaki’s Insights - Billy’s most-liked answers from 5i Research. It is a smaller and cheaper company than the big gold names. It has more leverage to deal with, discovery and multiple expansion is possible. There is more risk. Generally, small and mid cap gold outperform in a gold rally. You need to be okay…
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.
The space sector is promising. Still owns this and bought more with the weakness. With digital globe acquisition, they have married the space area well. Low level orbit satellite structure is promising. There are companies that need their data. Best positioned to combine data and put it in a good format. The valuation is still…
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 !!!
