Many resources and ETFs are hitting their 52-week high again this week. Notably, Metro, who is reporting their earnings this week, is once again on the best performer’s list! Energy was hit hard last year, but Enbridge is once again on it’s 52-week high. The notable big losers are Bellatrix and SNC Lavalin hitting their 52-week low.
Here’s this week’s 52-week high and lows of securities listed on Stockchase:
Here’s this week’s 52-week highs stocks ….
Located in Turkey is one of the major dangers, because of their elections and that they are not getting along with Russia. Thinks the US$ is high, so when that comes down the gold price should go up. The company has zero debt and they make money. Thelr “all in” sustaining costs is $600+. Have…
The no. 1 performer on the TSX in 2018, up 85%. They have great mines in Ontario and Australia, both stable areas. They keep increasing production targets: produce 1 million ounces of gold a year by 2021. There's a place for precious metals in your portfolio when we hit the inevitable recession and return to…
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.
Doesn’t particularly like the deposit. Very speculative. It’s all over the map. There are safer names out there.
Silvercrest Metals (SIL-T) or Silvercorp Metals (SVM-T)? This one is a fairly small deposit, but with high quality people.
Good management team. A little expensive at this price, relative to the state of the project. Would nibble away on any weakness. Be patient.
(A Top Pick Jan 25/12. Down 30.77%.) Ran into a short-term production problem and some legal suits, both of which are out of the way now. Just reported fourth-quarter shipments of 10,000 ounces, implying 40,000+. Looking at probably 60,000 ounces which is a corporate objective. Price target of $1.50.
This was formerly a closed-end fund of junior resources but changed its method of operations and now has two gold projects in Bulgaria and hope to produce as much as 500,000 ounces in 3 years. Also have exposure in several other junior stocks. Cheap.
Is the price of gold manipulated? Gold is now in a sideways range during a commodity bear market that'll last to 2030. That explains why FNV has been in a sideways trading range for so long. It FNV breaks above the current $100 that will be encouraging. Meanwhile, he would wait. June/July is gold's seasonality,…
(A Top Pick Jan 10/06. Up 60%.) Has completed financing and will have 2 mines in production by the end of the summer.
He's long owned this. A commodity (garbage) business, but they know how to run a business and they also own their landfills. Generates a lot of fresh cash flow; dividend increases; and share buybacks. A U.S. company on the TSX, so you don't worry about exchange rate. A little pricey now, but buy on a…
(A Top Pick March 23/17 - Down 27%). A controversial stock in the last years. A company the is in the hydro vac – high pressure water to move earth rather than digging. Largest in North America. Last year it had a bad quarter and the shorts were clobbered the stock. In the meantime, the…
CAE Inc (CAE-T) TSE
Flight simulation is a good space because air travel is increasing. CAE has alot of existing relationships. Reasonably price, but she doesn't see a compelling reason to buy it.
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…
(Top Pick Jan 29/15, Up 16.82%) A very solid management group. They had problems digesting their acquisitions. He got out earlier in the year and intends to now get back in.
(Market Call Minute) He likes it. He thinks it will continue to move higher because industrial space is still very much in demand.
Which sector should I invest in: banks, REITs or pipelines? Banks. They have an oligopoly, earn steady profits, and have exposure to overseaS markets. But diversify. REITs have been neglected for many years due to exaggerated fears about a retail collapse (that Amazon will devour everyone). Retail REITs are trading below book value but have…
Has done a little bit of work on this but is not an expert on it as yet. Really likes what they are doing in terms of third-party pension administration. Companies are outsourcing all sorts of administrative issues. They don’t need a whole lot of capital, because it is a service business. Stock has done…
It announced a strategic review as MG-T is 80% of their tenant base. Everyone is waiting. There is so much potential because the balance sheet is so much under levered. He trimmed when the CEO left. You get paid 6% to wait.
Likes this company. Their most recent quarter showed a slight little bit of weakness, and this is mostly because of weather. There might be a bit of an opportunity this year, because this REIT has is some very interesting developments that they have been doing, and another pipeline coming up over the next couple of…
Owns a little. Canadian REITs have bounced off the bottom during the last couple of months, in part because of higher oil prices and higher commodity prices. That has benefited the entire sector. This operates in an area where rents are not regulated.
Proposing to take over True North Apartment REITs. A very controversial deal, and usually this company doesn’t do things that are deemed controversial. The market was not positive on this because basically you usually don’t do dilutive deals when you’re stock price is at a lower level and trading significantly below NAV. The view is…
This would not be his favourite. This is a multi-family REIT. Some of the ones he likes a little bit better have internal management and better balance sheets. If you are buying this, you are really buying it for the yield. You can get better risk/reward with similar yield with something like a Pure Multi-Family…
A spin-off from Loblaw; most properties are Loblaw locations. The interesting is the merger with another REIT. Good thing is the wider exposure to other sectors, but the bad thing is losing focus from the grocery retail sector. Overall, the merger is a good thing--it's a more liquid company. Over time, should see higher multiples.
If looking to play small to mid-cap property-casualty, this would be a way to play it. Have a lot of specialty lines.
The whole group has gotten cheap, but he sees little growth with this one, not until 2020 with some of their U.S. assets. Boasts a 12% discount in its NAV. It's a yield proxy. There are better REITs, but the current price of this is decent.
The risk is they own a bunchof U.S. real estate tied to medical practices and there were changes in the competitive landscape in some states. They bought a company recently that spiked the stock. He's met and likes the management. But they carry a lot of debt. He believes they'll sail through it, but the…
This has a couple of interesting aspects. They have great genetics, and genetics are really important. If you are going to go recreational, you need a marijuana seed that produces a high quality product. They just doubled their 15,000 ft.² facility and will have a big expansion on their property. He likes this company.
A year ago they went through a restructuring and then a big acquisition in Safeway. They were left with a banner that had few discount brands in Western Canada, then tinkered with their loyalty program and that upset consumers. Last quarter the results were not liked. He used to have it but now prefers WN-T…
This typically does really well from April to July, but once you get into July, it tends to move lower. We are now past the period of seasonal strength. Stay away from this for now. There are other opportunities.
They're expanding like crazy in China, but their sales growth is weaker than expected. He doesn't know their strategy and won't buy QSR until he does. They're generating lots of free cash flow and offer great brands, but the market fears it'll overpay its next acquisition.
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…
BCE Inc. (BCE-T) TSE
Getting a decent dividend. So if look at the dividend and the 2-3% share appreciation, that is giving you a decent return for the quality of name and size of business you are buying. US telco's are very different than Canadian. BCE is doing a good job and is growing.
In the Athabascan Basin, which has the highest uranium deposits in the world. Drill-ready targets. High risk and very speculative. Good management.
Enbridge (ENB-T) TSE
Still likes it. One concern is still Line 3 being delayed. In Michigan, government wants an earlier pipeline shutdown. The business itself is fine, but political risk could impact the stock short-term. Buy it at a 3-5% weighting, put it away, hold it for years. Nice dividend with growth.
Route 1 Inc. (ROI-X) TSXV
His third-largest holding in his personal portfolio. Has a product that goes into the USB port on your computer and allows you to reach into any computer, where you have authorization, around the world. Has been trading in a band of 3.5 cents to 5 cents. Currently at break even on earnings and cash flow.…
(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.
This interest rate sensitive utility was hurt hard with rising rates last year. As the Central Bank has reduced fears of further rate increases, these stocks have done well. AQN-T has a good balance between generation and distribution businesses. This makes it have more of a growth profile than other utilities in the space. It…
We are seeing a new secular uptrend in 10 years bonds. It will put pressure on bond proxies like EMA-T. If your time is more than 3-6 months then okay, but if longer then look at something with pricing power like telcos or REITs.
Here’s this week’s 52-week low stocks ….
(A Top Pick December 18, 2017. Down 33%). He was early in his recommendation of this company, but it is doing the right things. It is extending the maturity of its debt. The company was over $3 a year ago. Production in Q2 was up compared to Q1. It will drop for Q3 because of…
Great driller and a low-cost producer of natural gas. However, the problem is the price of natural gas and how to get it out of Alberta and into a market that will pay more for it. That is a problem with a lot of natural gas stocks these days. Dividend yield of 8.96%, a warning…
They just made an acquisition to increase their volumes. Book value is twice their stock price. They have a decent balance sheet with a decent, sustainable dividend. (Analysts’ price target is $2.88)
(Market Call Minute.) Just acquired one of her junior companies and she intends to take the shares and hold.
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…
🛢 Basic Materials
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…
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.
He wanted a little more copper exposure. Located in the state of Veracruz in south east Mexico. Management has been in Mexico for about 25-30 years. Thinks there is a lot of downside protection in their current working capital position. One thing you should watch is the permitting in Veracruz. It has to be done…
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.
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.
They had a lousy quarter. The stock is too cheap now. A small market cap company--caveat. There's a lot of exploration upside. Their earlier quarters beat expectations. They're in the penalty box, but they will recover.
Have properties in Peru and Newfoundland. Extended their Newfoundland properties from one to 3 km. Some risks involved. If you like the people that promoted Ivanhoe, it might be worth the risk, but put a stop under it at $.50.
12 million oz of gold and platinum. 17 km long deposit. Potential to double in size of larger. Was formerly a mine and has been permitted. Access to power. Could go into production in 2 years.
The primary long way to get exposure in the Canadian frac market of larger companies. He likes management. They are a transportation advantage within Canada, and are roughly 40% of the Canadian frac sand market. Some of the big, big wells going on in the Permian literally use 100-200 railcars for a single well. The…
The only other publicly traded company other than ADW.A-T in wine. Legislation in Ontario allows wine to be sold in grocery stores. This is going to grow significantly. But DWS-X also sells most of their production to a Chinese exporter. It has higher growth potential than Brick Brewing (BRB-T). (Analysts’ target: $0.40).
A fairly new start-up company. Management has worked for different apparel companies in the past. Doesn’t follow this closely. They are billing themselves as kind of an upstart between Under Armour (UA-N) and Lululemon Athletica (LULU-Q) in that they have athletic wear for both women and men. Hasn’t done a lot of work on this,…
A developer brand in organic food space. Recently broke into Loblaw’s (L-T) and some other food chains. An acquisition driven story. They have quite strong organic growth of 20%+ a year, but will continue to acquire brands, develop them, and expand them from within. It is everything from baby food to pet food to drinks.…
System integrating company. A 10% dividend shows a lot of confidence. He owns some of this stock. He was buying today even.
New drug delivery for more testosterone. Got a lot of attention because they are working on the female Viagra. It is a concept stock because they are in trials. If it works out it could be a huge win. But there are no revenue or earnings at this point so there is a lot of…
It is oversold, but there is no justice in the markets. It has been in a band since its troubles re-exerted themselves. Just because it is oversold is not a reason to go buying it. We need to break through the band we are in now and then will challenge the $40 range. The 407…
If you like gold... Getting 2 times leverage as gold price decreases. Gold is a play on the U.S dollar. Makes money if the price of gold stock goes down.
Use this list wisely to identify buying opportunities.
Happy trading !!!
