This week’s new 52-week highs…
(A Top Pick Feb 01/22, Up 12%) Well-run and positioned to offer e-charging stations given all their stations and locations. Well-financed. Still has a little more upside.
He sold this a while ago and has now added it back. As a defensive stock it is one of the better plays over the next one or two years.. It has done a good job of re-vamping its stores and most of its capital spending is done. Buy 1 Hold 10 Sell 0…
Does not own shares in company. Leader in generic clothing. Lost cost producer, but does not believe in growth outlook. Management changes a concern. Would not recommend investing at this time.
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.
Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O’Reilly We again reiterate this US dollar ETF as a good defensive strategy. If there is a market run to safety of the US greenback, this low fee ETF is a good way to buy some protection. We continue to recommend a stop at $13.25, looking to achieve an initial…
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.
(A Top Pick Nov 15/22, Up 4%) Look at your portfolio and make sure you're balanced appropriately. Do you have enough fixed income? If a 20% decline in the TSX or S&P, how does that make you feel? Still likes it as first line of defense in portfolio diversification.
(A Top Pick Jan 09/23, Up 5%) Great option for investors looking for steady yield. Very defensive stock. Ability to generate yield that has been absent for years, given low interest rates. Would recommend to keep holding.
In a rising rate environment, you might want to stick to a shorter term. ZCS is a short-term, corporate, investment-grade ETF. Had drawdowns, but not as bad as a typical aggregate bond or high-yield ETF.
(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…
Beginning to see benefits, synergies, and increased scale of Shaw merger. Sees more free cash coming, will help delever balance sheet. Wireless impressive in Q3. Merger will help them take bold steps in 10G in coaxial cable, can really help longer term. 10x 2025 and 16% EPS growth, cheaper than BCE and Telus. On risk/reward…
🛢 Basic Materials
(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.
Has raised its dividend for 50-straight years. A steady, consistent dividend-grower that they plan to grow 4-6% annually through 2028. That's an 8-10% total return. FTS hasn't done much in recent years given interest rates rising, but when they fall, FTS will benefit.
Refocused, and the stock chart reflects that. Well run. Attractive market niche. Valuation too high to buy today. But if you hold, keep on holding and let it work for you. GAARP idea, not for the dividend. See his Top Picks for dividend ideas.
Call options in a registered account? No-go for him. Yes, air travel is rebounding and there's lots of demand. But it's what you don't see under the surface that's the problem. AC had financial struggles during Covid, and now they have a lot more debt. Issued shares to stave off bankruptcy. Less upside now than…
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.
Has pulled back a lot. It holds US medical property. It has suffered inflationary pressures, but will diminish in 2023 and the stock will recover. Don't sell it in the current Dutch auction.
(A Top Pick Dec 08/23, Up 4%) BAM and BN-T are the top Brookfield stocks. BAM has huge leverage forward, so much money they manage. The market has been done on this during high interest rates and because of commercial real estate. Yes, some CRE buildings stink and won't do well, but others will be…
It’s slowly moved up from $28. The pullback is a natural phenomenon after the pop. Lots of volume. He would buy it here.
HR.UN vs. AX.UN Doing its best to diversify into multi-family residential apartments in US Sunbelt, where supply is high, so operating income will be challenged. Execution story in a difficult environment for selling or transitioning assets. A hold. Discount to NAV, but headwinds to fundamentals. Still, prefers it to AX.UN.
Unique, charming, well-maintained buildings with smaller floor spaces. Well run. Development of "The Well" not smooth. Not expensive, opportunity to buy. Interest rates have hurt, but real estate should do well with lower rates.
Are the dominant cable player in Quebec and benefitted a lot from Rogers buying Shaw then having to sell Freedom Mobile at great terms to Quebecor. Also, they bought spectrum cheaply so they can expand into Ontario and western Canada and much lower capex. Generating strong cash flow. Debt will probably get upgraded by year's…
Continue with the 52-week lows here.
Use this list wisely to identify buying opportunities.
