This week’s new 52-week highs and lows … (Jan 23-29)
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 ….
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…
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…
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.
They have three gold mines around the world. A huge 13.7% free cash flow yield; FCF grew over 200% YOY to $244 million. Sales were up 63% in the recent quarter. Cash flow is expected to grow in 2021 26%, and the ROE to be 26% in the coming year. Gold has momentum, says the…
Not keen on gold companies since they are perpetually expensive. Next generation of gold bugs seem to be more interested in crypto. Owning the physical commodity may be the better bet. When gold prices go up, cost goes up so he prefers streamers more than producers. Holding metals in the long term, he prefers WPM…
(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.
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…
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.
CAE Inc (CAE-T) TSE
Nothing soared higher after the vaccine news than airline stocks. True, these are obvious plays. Less obvious are stocks like CAE. CAE trains pilots, and the company enjoys a strong moat being part of a duopoly. In the past month, CAE has leapt from $17 to $32, and is just $1 shy of its 52-week…
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…
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)
Owns properties in Canada, US, and Europe. He's bullish. Still upside, based on valuation. Easy to see NAV north of $17, based on cap rates in the private market. Distribution yield is very safe. A number of tailwinds, including e-commerce as #1. Supply chain reorganization will make rents rise dramatically.
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.
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 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 Jun 25/20, Up 32.42%) Has a lot more stability today. Trades at a slight discount to NAV. Close to a 10% return. Yield is 3.5%.
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.
Among Canadian apartment REITs, CAP REIT gets all the love, but also the price appreciation. Actually, Killam's chart is nearly identical to CAP REIT year-to-date and pays a healthy 3.88% dividend yield (CAP REIT pays 2.84%). Whereas CAP REIT is centered on Toronto, Killam focuses on Atlantic Canada, namely Halifax and Charlottetown. Another difference is…
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.
Billy Kawasaki’s Insights - Billy’s most-liked answers from 5i Research. They have industrial properties that held up well during the sell off earlier this year. Solid profitability and has positive cash flows. Valuation is starting to be rich with price to sales at 8.6x. PE is ok at 17.3x. Dividend yield is good at 5.8%. Unlock…
Stable income provider you can add to any portfolio. Likes it. Great real estate nationally. Biggest tenant is Loblaw, so it has a secure cashflow. An element of growth, which is unique, from the industrial sector. Nice combination of safety and growth. Hold, sleep well at night with the distribution yield.
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…
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.
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)
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.
Well run. Benefited during the pandemic. Stepped up their online game. Online demand will continue. Tough comparisons to last year. May be better to wait and see how investors react over the next few quarters. Not huge downside, but more of a wait and see.
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.
I a good entry point now, despite the 38x PE. The stock is kinda underowned, with some saying QSR locations are saturated in Canada. WSR has done well in the last quarter. EPS growth is 22% and pays a 3.3% dividend yield. Likes it.
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…
(A Top Pick Aug 17/20, Up 1%) He bought this to play defence and collect its nice dividend. They're still growing earnings at 13%, faster than peers. The whole group is nervous, that they have to spend more on spectrum. But this is a good 5G play over time. It's still a buy.
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.
BCE Inc. (BCE-T) TSE
The market worries all these telcos are overpaying on spectrum. He predicts the Rogers-Shaw deal will happen. The telcos will benefit from 5G and should be held in a TFSA as you collect the good dividends.
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
It has been a great stock for many investors. It has an attractive dividend yield that is safe. He does not think electric vehicles will take over. He thinks there will be yield normalization. He thinks it is a good investment as a dividend proxy. He would buy it for a new client.
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.
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.
Has recommended this for a long time. It's trading at a more reasonable PE now. You collected a good dividend. It's not cheap now, but in no man's land. Maybe don't buy it today, but have it under your radar. Buy under $19.
Now an international operator with their acquisition in Florida. Diversified into natural gas in New Mexico too. A growth international utility. Ultimately, it trades as a utility. Interest rate sensitive. Interest rates going up will limit your upside.
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.
Consolidation of the small and mid-cap names is an important theme. There are better names to own in the space.
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…
Great assets, great business. Results have held steady through the pandemic. Afterwards, lots of high margin areas should start growing again. Reasonably priced. Hang on or buy more. If it's taken out by the major shareholder, it will be at a significantly higher price.
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…
A lot of the upside from the Biden bill has been priced into the stock. Valuation is not as demanding, so there might be some incremental upside, especially if they can avoid past issues. Controls and governance have tightened up. Risk of previous issues is very low, but it's anybody's guess whether there are still…
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…
Use this list wisely to identify buying opportunities.
Happy trading !!!
