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 …
He is a big fan of this company and likes their management team. Their own risk management tolerance is low. A lot of buildings in Toronto and Vancouver, but they also hold office space in tight markets. They find older buildings and turn into nice new spaces. The balance sheet is healthy.
(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.
He's bullish on apartments long-term, given supply and demand in many markets. But short-term there's an impact. IIP has a growing presence in Montreal and he likes their overall portfolio, but assets around McGill and Concordia have taken a hit because foreign students can't enter Canada. A blue chip trading cheaply. If you're a longer-term…
Likes their managers and strategy. They dominate across the Maritimes and have expanded into Ontario, BC, and have a small presence in Calgary. They outperform some apartment REITs, because they lack exposure in urban centres (urban, multi-family REITs have lagged). Killam should stability and growth in the coming year. Problem is that foreign students and…
A hold. A value name in apartments in Canada and the U.S. He's impressed with how stable their Toronto portfolio is, holding occupancy quite well. MGR is in the US sunbelt and Chicago. MRG is higher-leveraged. He's seeking REITs that are defensive. He doesn't see as much growth here vs. the REITs he already owns.…
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 Biden win would be positive for green energy. Renewable producers have already run up. Don't chase. Opportunity to buy when there's a pullback. She owns BEP.UN and AQN. Long-term value. AQN you could start adding right here. Wait on BEP.UN.
A good dividend play. The yield is at 4.6%. People tend to focus on the tech side of green stocks, but this has utilities that have consistent income. They are a potential takeover target for Brookfield so the price has recently shot up. Could get decent returns.

He likes it. His model price is $128 or 100% upside. The balance sheet is very small. It looks very, very good as a gold company. It has a totally different profile than most other gold companies. He would hold it here, but realize it might go down to $50. He would sell if it…
You want defensive stocks right now. Big thing is Jean Coutu, and integration will create earnings and cash flow growth. More difficult issue is how to expand that brand beyond Quebec, and this is already priced into the stock. A defensive name, and you can do quite well. Yield is 1.7%.
Short vs. long term bonds. Generally as the expectation comes for rate hikes, you want longer term bonds. You don’t want corporate because if the economic slows, you just want government bonds.
He prefers corporate bonds because they yield more than government bonds. Prices will probably continue to fall. You are getting a bigger yield payment than the yield to maturity on the bonds themselves. CBO-T would be the replacement for this ETF.
How do DLR and DLR-U work? One bets on the US dollar, and the other bets against it. They're currency plays. He prefers betting on it, the DLR, because the USD is on the upside.
(A Top Pick Jul 31/19, Up 0.4%) This is a way to lower volatility. A return of 2.15% per year, paid monthly. Hold it during volatility, sell it, and use the return to pick up your cyclicals during periods of seasonal strength.
Use this list wisely to identify buying opportunities.
Happy trading !
