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 …
You don’t get this one on sale very often. It has really come off. It is an opportunity to get into it. They have developments coming on line and good retail properties. This is a nice opportunity. They are continuing to diversify geographically.
This REIT has been around a long time and holds a cluster of assets in Toronto, Vancouver and the US. Generally, it is well run and you could continue to hold it for the long term. He would prefer SRU.UN-T.
Likes the apartment sector in Canada. Shorter leases and about 40% turnover so with inflation you can capture higher rates. Rock solid balance sheet and they just made a major accretive acquisition – a redevelopment play. You are buying at a discount and you will get dividend growth. They make improvements and get above guideline…
Owns a little. Canadian REITs have bounced off the bottom during the last couple of months, in part because of higher oil prices and higher commodity prices. That has benefited the entire sector. This operates in an area where rents are not regulated.
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.
A very well-managed REIT. Has a portfolio of basically Walmart anchored tenants for its plazas. Has a good development team in place, so he expects they will continue to see growth. Very reasonable dividend at just over 5%. A name that you could buy over the next several years.
Another utility. It is defensive. It has meaningful growth potential. He likes the growth prospects. (Analysts’ price target is $16.01)
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…

He personally likes to purchase ETFs to diversify risk in the space. He likes the bullish technical chart and thinks it will go higher as long as gold does too.
This typically does really well from April to July, but once you get into July, it tends to move lower. We are now past the period of seasonal strength. Stay away from this for now. There are other opportunities.
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 !
