Here’s this week’s 52-week high and lows of securities listed on Stockchase:
Here’s this week’s 52-week highs stocks ….
The 3rd largest holding in his portfolio. They have seen the mines in Turkey and were impressed. The area is a danger zone with recent fighting and the stock has taken a hit. The mine is far enough away from the fighting so he thinks it will not be impacted. He paid just over $2…

There is no dividend. Sales are up but earnings are less negative rather than positive. Earnings growth forecast for this year is zero.
Doesn’t particularly like the deposit. Very speculative. It’s all over the map. There are safer names out there.
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.
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.
Good management team. A little expensive at this price, relative to the state of the project. Would nibble away on any weakness. Be patient.
It's a 10 cent stock, when even the big companies aren't doing well. If you like it, sure go ahead. But there's nothing he can add.
The operate gold and copper mines in Bulgaria and Namibia. Earnings up 80% YOY, and boast a 9.2% free cash flow yield. Cash flow to grow 74% in 2020 and 17% in 2021. Price-to-cash flow is 5.9x. ROE expected this year is 21%. (Analysts’ price target is $9.23)
Great quarter. A royalty company, so avoids much of the commodity risk. Gold is in a structural uptrend right now. Perennial all-weather gold name to own in the sector. Yield is 0.71%. (Analysts’ price target is $211.51)
(A Top Pick Jan 30/19, Up 85%) They have the market's attention. Later this year there is the decision whether they start up an older mine that has been mothballed for a while.
(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.
(A Top Pick Oct 24/19, Up 11%) They lowered guidance during the lockdown, then revised their guidance back up a few moths later because they saw robust recovery. Waste collection is resilient and will prosper regardless of who will be the US president or trade tensions. SO, WM is well-positioned in a highly fragmented industry…
They have been getting away from oil and gas work and more toward infrastructure. They have hydro-vac trucks to excavate so crews can get in and work on gas lines and so on. He got stopped out in March. He would have no trouble buying them back. They are quite well run.
CAE Inc (CAE-T) TSE
(A Top Pick Jan 23/20, Down 23%) It got a good boost from the growth to value shift. He likes this for its duopoly position (training pilots). True, few pilots are getting trained now, but CAE will benefit when that demand returns. Wait long enough and this stock will come back. Today, CAE is buying…
It holds mostly retail that contains Sobeys and is 40% in the east coast. Empire owns 40% of this. Last week's Q2 results were below expectations due to high debt. Rent collection was 93% in July, which is positive. New buildings will be mixed-use, which is positive but COVID has delayed and made the costs…
It's still early to buy office space. AP has benefited a lot from a tight Toronto office market. But there's a lot of new space coming on market. AP's clients, like Shopify, have said they won't need office space, though he doesn't think Allied is at risk. However, this trend could dampen their asking rates…

Focused on Canadian industrial warehouses. It's returned to its highs. However, its valuation has gotten high, so maybe take profits and add back later. There are better values in industrial spaces, though. Look at Granite REIT. Otherwise, nothing wrong with SMU.
He likes this retail REIT. It is trading at a 25-30% discount to NAV but Wal-Mart is the anchor tenant to 70% of their properties. 9% yield. The anchor tenant drives some of the traffic to the other stores. Post-vaccine, these will come back. (Analysts’ price target is $25.13)
(A Top Pick Jun 14/18, Up 59%) It is another example of an undervalued tech company in Canada. It was taken out by MS-N just over a month ago.
(A Top Pick Nov 01/19, Up 22%) REITs have had a pretty tough year but there has been some that have done well. A spin out of Magna. Portfolio of industrial, logistics and warehouse market. The shift from retail to online has been beneficial for them. Trades currently at 20x EBITA. Middle of the pack…
Their collection rate? They reported yesterday. 99% rent collection rate for July-September. Rates are strong for all apartment REITs. He's pleased to see that. IIP's strategy is to sacrifice occupancy to preserve rent. They are concentrated in student housing in Montreal, which is a weakness, but this is short-term, he thinks. A rent freeze in…
Will it do well after a Covid vaccine emerges? They've been collecting all their rents. Good managers. He likes apartment REITs, which are well-positioned. After a vaccine, there will be higher rates of immigration that the government will promote. Immigrants will seek affordable housing, so Killam will benefit. Now, KMP is fairly valued, so hold…
It is a subject of a takeover and you might consider holding it until the close of the take out transaction. You could also move to another apartment REIT. Your upside is capped from here with NVU.UN-T.
A hold. A tiny REIT with a yield that is too high to sustain. They did a portfolio acquisition of retail mall space in Quebec -- the wrong asset at the wrong time.
80% of its assets are retail. He shies away from retail, but Loblaw owns half of those assets, which is stable and boasts high rent collection. The company is in good hands and the dividend is safe. Managers are doing a good job to diversify into apartments and industrial spaces to diversify away from retail.
Involved in nonstandard automobile/motorcycle insurance as well as home insurance. BV of around $14.37 but Tangible Book is $13.50. No debt. Overly capitalized by over $35 million. Stable management. Basically Canadian, but their big driver is Europe. 25%-30% growth. Will probably earn about $1.30 next year. Have an option of putting in a dividend, free…
(A Top Pick Sep 17/19, Down 52%) A diversified REIT. This is one they ended up selling. Their mall portfolio has suffered. He was afraid the dividend would come under pressure. Getting access to capital is tough for them.
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's a real estate play on medical facilities in the US. It was overleveraged a few years ago, then COVID declined their business, which are non-essential surgeries. But they're still profitable and paying dividends. He sees upside.
She owns another name in food retailing/grocers, who have benefitted from strong same-store sales growth, though this growth will moderate as economies open up more and eat out more. All retailers are increasing digital shopping and home delivery, though. It's a competitive space. All names have benefitted from the pandemic, but Empire doesn't offer much…
He has been a fan for 15 years but regrets not buying it. It has run up more than Loblaws so he would not get it now. Wait for a rotation out of grocery stocks and then at that point he would prefer this one to L-T.
(A Top Pick Dec 11/19, Down 10%) Looking for a turnaround on Tim's, and for global growth on the other brands. Modelling decent growth. Covid hurt, but doesn't affect its long-term viability.
(A Top Pick Sep 10/19, Up 145%) The pandemic accelerate their already high growth. It's one of the top 30 performing stocks YTD. They reach 280,000 Canadian subs as the largest meal-kit company. Revenues had shot up five-fold over recent years when he bought this at $1.40. They just reported their first profit ever, proving…
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…
(A Top Pick Nov 11/19, Down 1%) They announced unlimited data plans for all their subscribers. They took the hit up front unlike their competitors. The pandemic hurt their sports and radio and TV assets and so squeaked out a flat return for the year.
BCE Inc. (BCE-T) TSE
Juicy dividend, which grows steadily. Predictable business model. Today's results seem fine. Share price is overreacting. Some decline in monthly revenue. One to own for steady and growing income over time.
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…
Enbridge (ENB-T) TSE
Concerned about the dividend. In the midst of expansion. Need all the market goodwill they can get, so probably won't cut the dividend. Technically, back to good support. Nervously hang in there.
Route 1 Inc. (ROI-X) TSXV
The business allows a USB device to reach into a database. Many of the clients were US military and security agencies. A recent acquisition gives them good forward prospects.
It has been on fire this year (up 30%). Hydro Quebec is buying 10% of the stock. He would stay on the sidelines since it has rallied just based on a strategic alliance with Hydro Quebec.
Good long-term hold. 3/4 of its operations are regulated. The rest is renewable power, which is gaining a lot of traction as a long-term secular trend. Stable cashflow stream, most comes from the US. Dividend growth visibility. Yield is 3.2%.
Has a small short on it. It is defensive but it is not cheap for the cashflow it generates. The earnings are 14x EBITA and 1.7x book with 24x price to earning. The yield is healthy at 4.5% but the payout ratio is rising.
Here’s this week’s 52-week low stocks ….
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…
Natural gas? The outlook for natural gas has improved as associated production has impacted by shut in oil production. He is not fond of PEY as they have covenant violations (that should be worked out). He has others he prefers.
There were developments where activists are pressuring banks to no longer lend to energy companies. However, energy is one way for the country to get out of the debt problem and in his opinion this is even more reason to be bullish.
This had been on his Short List of about 10 companies. There is absolutely nothing wrong with it. He thinks you could get an 8%-10% rate of return. It just didn’t seem to have that key catalyst driver that could make it exciting. (See Top Picks.)
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…

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”.
On the sidelines until the CEO impresses him; he's having implementation challenges. He's staying on the sidelines for now. Great CEO though.
(Past top pick March 6, 2018, Down 57%) When he bought it, he was interested in their copper play in Mexico. Since then, they had a big investment from Newcrest Mining. AMX has split into two companies, including Azucar. AMX is now the prospect generator. He owns them both. That transaction took a long time…
A large continental deposit, but there are political problems in Colombia. Are also concerns over cost overruns, can be managed. Worth buying overall.
Newmont took a position last year and surprised many at PDAC. Newmont is doing a joint venture on Goldstrike's Plateau property in the Yukon at a 90+% premium. Newmont is active and keen.
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.
Their deposit in Peru looks very attractive. It's large and has good grade. There is a significant amount of oxide material. A lot of upside potential.
(A Top Pick Jan 05/18, Down 86%) He sold out of this when it became apparent oil prices were not going to finish above $70 per barrel by year end. He sold out around $6.50. Demand for frac-sand is down and their is greater competition in the US. Spending plans have declined in Canada as…
Lassonde buying 19% of the company was recent good news. However, the market cap is only $26 million (too small for him), there remains some debt, and the growth rate hasn't been spectacular. There isn't much trading here, which doesn't help. As a rule, he doesn't invest in companies this small. This will likely bounce…
He would like to see a couple of good quarters out from them. It is thinly traded. You have to be prepared to watch it quarter by quarter.
Doesn't know this company. Loves the space. Names with a good name, like "green" move well. They produce organic foods, and people are looking to eat healthier. Fancy name. Fancy products.
Payout ratio is 56%. Sales are declining by 25% and earnings have fallen by 67%. He would be cautious and would look elsewhere. Yield 13%
Good company. In some interesting spaces in terms of hormonal stuff. They are on the search for a Viagra for women. The numbers into 2016 are looking pretty good. He wants to see one or 2 more quarters, but if they keep doing things the way they are, it is a name he would be…
One of those stressed companies in terms of earnings quality. They have shorted it. The short positions have had a shock to the system on Monday with a rush to cover cyclical recovery. Price momentum is mediocre and valuation is not there. They have negative return on equity and no real yield. Still in the…
Where you talk about a bear or bull ETF that is levered, they have no future. You are supposed to trade them on a day to day basis or possible a weekly basis. They are guaranteed to lose over the long term because of the way the gains are translated over night. These are a…
