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.
He models only $48.88. It pays a meager dividend. This is way overpriced. Gold is having a good run though, but he holds little gold.
(A Top Pick Jan 10/06. Up 60%.) Has completed financing and will have 2 mines in production by the end of the summer.
Has long owned it. The business is becoming less cyclical and seeing more acquisitions within the sector. Not a cheap stock, but its recent quarter saw earnings rise. Well-covered dividend, so safe. This year, their ROE is 11%. They could use their extra cash for acqusitions. He likes it.
A hydro-vac company for excavation. It trades at 14.2 times earnings and there was very good earnings recently. Their dividend was increased by 18% recently. They have diversified into infrastructure and away from oil and gas. Yield 1.9%. (Analysts’ price target is $32.38 )
CAE Inc (CAE-T) TSE
This is a flight simulator business based out of Montreal. They are a well run company. There will be increased demand for flight training around the world. He thinks valuation is too high right now.
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…
This is known as the niche brick and beam landlord in Toronto. 40% of their properties are in the downtown core. The name has pulled back recently, mostly related to the pullback in REITs. Also, 10 year bonds are backing up a bit giving a bit of consternation in the space. The name has come…
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.
Loves the industrial space. It is easy to build it so more supply could come on line. Properties are a little low quality, but your income is safe.
Yes, it’s retail, but best in class. Trades at 15x earnings, which is cheap. Spectacular management. Anchors for Walmart, which is doing well against Amazons of the world. Aggressive development in Toronto. Best tenants and assets. Diversifying and creating more margin. Yield is 5.8%. (Analysts’ price target is $32.61.)
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…
When this IPO’d, it was primarily dependent on Magna (MG-T) accounting for well over 90% of its net operating income. Management’s objective was to reduce Magna’s exposure to less than 50% NOI within 3 years by making additional acquisitions by using their under leveraged balance sheet. Management has not done that in a very aggressive…
He is a big fan of this company. They have a very entrepreneurial style. Dividend payout is very low and very sustainable. Sees more than average growth potential, so continues to like it. Good management.
A really good growth name at a reasonable price. Has had a big run since January, but there is more to go. He models that it grows 10% annually for the next couple of years. That growth rate is much better than the sector average of around 4%, and yet this is trading at an…
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…
They are in the midst of acquiring another REIT. They are diversifying away from Loblaw’s. He likes the combined entity. He is currently short because of the spread on the acquisition.
If looking to play small to mid-cap property-casualty, this would be a way to play it. Have a lot of specialty lines.
At these levels the valuation looks attractive. The dividend is safe. They don’t have as high a dividend growth outlook as other REITs though. A good hold for a diversified portfolio.
Got hurt. Margin compression. In US, it matters what can you get paid from Medicare. Missed numbers last 2 quarters, got clocked, now trying to get back onside. A “show me” stock. Stay away for at least another 6-12 months.
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…
Loblaw (L-T), Empire (EMP.A-T) or Metro (MRU-T)? Loblaw has proven to be the best run grocer in Canada. Empire has had its challenges but is starting to come back. This company would be somewhere in between the two.
(A Top Pick Jul 04/18, Up 21%) Consumer discretionary, but more defensive. Lower beta. Decent growth rate of 10-12%. Nice dividend of 2.9%. Sales performance improving. Focusing on guest experience. Strong dividend income and growth, plus earnings growth.
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…
He likes it at current levels and would start to pick away at it. A good, long-term dividend play. It's not recession-proof; it's a discretionary consumer stock.
BCE Inc. (BCE-T) TSE
A bond proxy? A steady stock with a good dividend. The price war in wireless is canalizing some margins. He thinks the fundamentals of the company will likely deteriorate over the next couple of years. A 5.3% yield. He will continue to hold for now.
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
Holds a rate-reset stock that's gone down. Sell now, wait for a rate rise or buy the common shares? It's double-whammy now, because rate-reset are going lower and you get less of a value with the spread. Every 5 years they reset to a spread above Canadian government bonds. Also, ENG is an oil stock…
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.
It is a renewable energy company and utility that has had a remarkable run. It has been sought by dividend seekers for its dividend growth. The reason it has sold off is because they have become expensive and there is a rotation into more economically sensitive groups. If the Fed goes into a rate cutting…
A utility that will offer less risk in the near term. Dividend payout ratio of 33%. Cash flow growth is increasing. A 5% earnings increase is expected. Yield 5.3% (Analysts’ price target is $46.87)
Here’s this week’s 52-week low stocks ….
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.
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…
85% light oil and 15% natural gas. It is a very low payout ratio. It is a monthly payout of more than 7%. It will be a fabulous rate of return. (Analysts’ price target is $2.15)
(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…
WSP Global is pretty much the gold standard. They are pretty much 100% consulting, whereas STN-T and SNC-T are not. He has shied away from the whole sector. The problem is the engineering and construction business, which he has never liked. Margins are razor thin. STN-T wants to get away from E&C. He would buy…
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 !!!
