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 …
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…
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.
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…
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.
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.)
It is part utility and part infrastructure. It started in Canada and has grown quite rapidly. It meets his criteria.
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…

(A Top Pick Mar 23/18, Up 112%) He took some profits and will redeploy money in the sector. This one has done its job for him. It will be a little volatile because it moved so hard so fast. He is bullish on gold, however.
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 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 !
