This week we note a nice rebound from the Metro Inc. (MRU) stock. It’s jumping at its 52-week high just 2 months after hitting its 52-week low.
Here’s this week’s new 52-week highs stock list …
(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.
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.
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…
He favours this REIT. Doesn’t think it is going to cause anyone to jump out of their coffin. You might be fairly bored with it, but it is safe. He immensely favours Morguard (MRC-T) itself.
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.
Pays a regulated return, though buy on a pullback, and it's done a great job growing. AQN is his favourite in this space.
An independent power producer. They have about 3000 MW of basically US based, but they do have some projects, primarily wind, in Ontario and Manitoba. Trading very inexpensively. They have the ability through their parent Pattern Energy Group (PEGI-Q) to vend in new development projects, so they don’t sustain development risks. They are 89%-90% contracted…

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)
Produces about 3% free cash flow yield, which translates into $287 million worth of free cash flow over the last 12 months. Trades at 0.9 Enterprise Value to Trailing Sales, versus 6% year-over-year sales growth, so the EV to sales to sales growth is .15 which is a C+ compared to the database. Dividend yield…
A laddered bond fund can reduce your exposure using shorter durations. The average is about 2.5 years. It reduces your return, but reduces your exposure to rising interest rates. A lot of funds use preferred shares instead of bonds.
Likes this because he can strategically hold his cash in US$s. He is always aware what it costs to do these things. The MER is only a half percent.
All this does is to invest in high interest deposit accounts. It is a constant steady stream of income. He hates recommending cash, but this is essentially a place to park your cash during the summer. You will at least get your 1% annual income.
Use this list wisely to identify buying opportunities.
Happy trading !
