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 ….
(A Top Pick March 26/15. Up 0.75%.) Their one and only mine is located in Turkey. A lot of people question about investing in Turkey. The company has about US$360 million in the bank, with no debt. Have a line of credit for US$250 million, because they want to expand their play in Turkey to…
This has been the best performer in the portfolio. He has taken some money off the table. He expects it to continue to move. Good reserves and good production. A solid name. Yield = 0.35% (Analysts’ price target is $51.22)
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.
Yukon. He hopes they fail and that they can’t put it into production for 4 years when gold is higher.
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's not a gold bug and prefers royalty companies. So, FNV is his favourite gold stock. The current price is too high as an entry point, so buy below $100 like $95. Otherwise, hold onto it. He prefers this to junior gold producers.
(A Top Pick Jan 10/06. Up 60%.) Has completed financing and will have 2 mines in production by the end of the summer.
It is not fabulous value and its fair market value is much lower, yet it has shown a technical breakout and is giving a technical buy.
(A Top Pick September 27, 2017. Up 10%). This is a stock that people love to hate, because an influential short-seller talks about it repeatedly. That has put a lid on the stock, but the company itself keeps coming through. The company had a bad quarter in the first quarter of last year, but has…
CAE Inc (CAE-T) TSE
(A Top Pick Feb 01/18, Up 25%) This is the name you go to in the simulation space. He was trying to take advantage of the ongoing pilot shortage. He is a happy holder of this
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…
(A Top Pick Nov 12/15. Up 5.27%.) Really unique properties, probably the best landholdings of any of the REITs. As the economy moves, the growth we have seen in the past just won’t be there in the future. It will probably take 3 or 4 quarters before the growth stabilizes.
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.
Because this is a bit small as an industrial, he does not invest in this REIT. He thinks there will be good solid growth this year in the industrial market, especially in the GTA. This one has low Alberta exposure and more GTA exposure. A good place to be. He is starting to see rent…
Loves it. Has long owned it. The typical Canadian has been in 3 of 4 of the stores they own in the last month. Very well-diversified. The death of retail (malls) has passed them well, and Smart has performed well.
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…
This has gone through a transition. It had significant exposure to Magna (MG-T) being a dominant tenant, accounting for about 80% of its NOI, which is still the case. Since 2011-2012, they’ve only done a couple of acquisitions, totaling about $100 million, which is unfortunate, because they have a very well capitalized balance sheet. That…
He likes management. Their ability to increase distributions will be there as their more aggressive development plan starts kicking in. They have a number of large-scale developments, which have taken a bit longer, but the dividend will increase over time. More importantly is the amount of growth you can get in earnings when you are…
(A Top Pick Jan 21/16. Up 22.52%.) He chose this because it was very cheap at the time. He was looking for catalysts Halifax occupancy to turn and for them to change from a corporation into a REIT, giving them more liquidity. He still likes the name and the growth rate. It is cheap for…
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…
Choice or Riocan to sell? He sold Choice recently. It disapointed him. This was Loblaw that spun into a REIT. Choice just merged with CREIT which has seaoned management. He doesn't like Choice--it's decayed more than the REIT sector. It'll be a work in progress for a while. He would sell Riocan and hold Choice,…
If looking to play small to mid-cap property-casualty, this would be a way to play it. Have a lot of specialty lines.
No, retail is not going out of fashion. HR will work out okay and will grind out a slowly growing dividend. The fear out there is that Amazon will destroy all retail--but that's unfounded. Also, HR diversifies into building condos too. A safe dividend, but with modest growth prospects.
(A Top Pick Dec 11/17, Up 21%) Pays over 7% dividend. This stock could really go. They own little surgical hospitals and outpatient clinics. They have a deal where doctors own the real estate and manage, while they share in the profits with DR. A very good model
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.
This company owns Sobeys’, who acquired Safeway. They have turned things around and “Project Sunrise” is working to centralize things. Same-store traffic and margins are improving. They are doing very well in a very competitive sector. The stock now has momentum. Yield 1.7%. (Analysts’ price target is $28.28 )
Produces about 3% free cash flow yield, which translates into $287 million worth of free cash flow over the last 12 months. Trades at 0.9 Enterprise Value to Trailing Sales, versus 6% year-over-year sales growth, so the EV to sales to sales growth is .15 which is a C+ compared to the database. Dividend yield…
Loves it. Long-term, the chart is good, but short-term he is waiting for a buy signal. It's gone sideways between 2016-18, then had a strong breakout, and now we see pullback to support at $90. Expect more choppiness near-term. He'd like to see a pullback to around $85, consolidation, then re-acceleration to the upside.
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…
Videotron 7.125% Jan 15, 2020 Bond. Credit metrics of an investment grade bond. They are the cable providers of Quebec. They have to push their profits up to QBR.B-T, but in the case of any insolvency of QBR, Videotron is made whole. The biggest risk is that they would be the 4th big player out…
A very defensive space, telcos. Not a growth stock, but pays income. He prefers BCE, because it just finished a big capex cycle and pays a higher dividend. Also, wireless penetration in Canada is limited, which in turn limits growth. That said, all the Canadian telcos are good for the long-term. Buy for the dividend,…
BCE Inc. (BCE-T) TSE
Has been taking some profits from BCE. Will eventually buy it back when it pulls back. It has a pretty strong upward resistance so you want to take some profits here. Could drop in the next recession.
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
The chart looked good and he bought it around $46.50. He would exit if the price falls to his buying price. It’s looking good for the time being and he’s happy with the recent shot up.
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.
Pays a regulated return, though buy on a pullback, and it's done a great job growing. AQN is his favourite in this space.
Just bought it. Multiple expansion could expend even further as lower interest rates encourage investors to buy predictable revenue streams (6-7% growth) and dividend growth (5%) like EMA. Pays a 5% dividend. 95% of this business is regulated, so there'll be consistent earnings. And they're in the Florida market. Also, ESG investing is picking up,…
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…
It is his dividend play today. It is a cheap stock. There is a dividend of about 7%. His one year target is $3.70. He owns the stock personally. They have a low payout ratio. (Analysts’ price target is $2.13)
(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…
There is real systemic risk here. However, the 407 highway contract is worth $20 per share and the stock is trading below $22. There is no shortage of political risk. You need to wait to buy, when it is the most painful moment when all the institutional buyers are out. He is watching developments closely.
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 !!!
