This week’s new 52-week highs…
Has a 7% free cash flow yield. The market is annoyed they haven't made an acquisition recently, but he's fine with that. They've produced a ROE of 20% for decades, and are undervalued now. He doubled his position in the low-$40s. There is some concern over e-cars, but ATD has been testing EV stations in…
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%.
He's passed on this after reviewing it many times. They depend on retail sales in clothes, and face a lot of competition. They grew very quickly but have been plateauing. It craters on high cotton prices, though. It's a trade at best.
Stock vs. Stock. FIE-T vs. CMR-T. CMR-T is a money market fund. FIE-T is a multi holding income strategy holding all kinds of assets, so there will be more volatility. When markets are up go into CMR-T and FIE-T when they are down.
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.
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.
Some bond ETFs. Can invest $50K Also consider ZAG which holds short-, mid- and long-term bonds. If rates stay flat or decline, ZAG will do well. If you have $50K, buy two or three of these ETFs to spread the risk. Check the duration and credit rating of each.
(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.
This will improve, because bonds mature at par, then you re-load at higher interest rates. The ETF is down, but don't sell. This will correct and you will benefit from higher interest rates. Be patiebt.
(A Top Pick April 7/16. Up 0.09%.) This is a short duration portfolio of bonds in Canada. A good defensive place to be.
Short provincial ETF. With Provincial bonds you get a little bit of pickup vs. Federal. He prefers ZPL-T for long provincials as opposed to short. He wants more long bond exposure.
(Past Top Pick on Feb. 15, 2018, Up 29%) An acquisition last year accelerated their move into the Cloud which is higher growth. The market didn't appreciate this move until MNW announced a few solid quarters. Then it was announced a private equity company would acquire MNW. Currently, they're in a period where MNW can…
He's held this for 30 years. Investors underestimate their infrastructure assets in their networks built-out. The stock is cheap now. They benefit from heavy streaming now. They generate good cash flow and a cheap valuation. (He also own BCE, Telus and Shaw.) Rogers' advantage as that it trades at a similar valuation, but pays the…

(A Top Pick March 2/17, Up 9%) Sold it, but then the stock got too cheap, so he bought it back. He was unhappy with their inability to solve metallurgical problems in Eritrea. The stock sold off because their Serbian deposit won't produce cash for a while. There were alleged human rights abuses in Eritrea.
(A Top Pick Mar 05/19, Down 33%) A copper play in Serbia. It has three joint ventures including Newport. They still have a large land package that could lead to other projects. They also have assets in Bulgaria. He will continue to hold it.
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.
Pounding the table on utilities, which will benefit big time from low interest rates. Earnings and dividend growth potential is high compared to telecoms, banks, and insurance companies. Highly recommends adding it to your portfolio.

Need to be patient over next year or so. Lots of cash on hand, so they'll survive. Highly cyclical. Starting to inch its way up. Once we start to see normalcy in travel, could do very well. Small position only in this, and depends on your risk tolerance and time horizon.
Rather bad couple of days. Was down substantially, outside of a range. Consolidated. It broke down and is more likely to go down. $1.50 on the downside.
It's a real estate play on medical facilities in the US. It was overleveraged a few years ago, then COVID declined their business, which are non-essential surgeries. But they're still profitable and paying dividends. He sees upside.
(A Top Pick Oct 09/20, Down 1%) Still likes it for new client money. Global. Diversified. Likes the Oaktree Capital acquisition. Lots of liquidity to take advantage of opportunities. More growth oriented than a big dividend.
It’s slowly moved up from $28. The pullback is a natural phenomenon after the pop. Lots of volume. He would buy it here.
(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 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.
Pre-COVIC, he saw that tech was going to pop, and now the puck is heading to boring value names, like Quebecor. Has an 11% growth rate and trades at 12.6x 2021. Its a very cheap telco and have a lot of cash to return to shareholders and raise the dividend if they wish. Their wireless…
