PAST TOP PICK
Innova Gaming Group (IGG-T (Dead))

(Top Pick May 26/15, Down 64.64%) You can be right with the fundamentals but if it is in the wrong hands you could be wrong.  Their growth in terms of number of units has been skyrocketing.  The fundamentals are fantastic.  It trades at 2 times cash flow.  He would look at buying more here.

BUY

WATCH
Melcor Developments Ltd (MRD-T)

He has been short.  It is getting to a valuation where he is thinking about covering.  Their problem was they were based in Calgary.  It is starting to look interesting on a price to book basis.  He is not quite sold on it yet.  Their earnings are not going to turn around any time yet.  He would not buy it, but he is covering shorts.

TOP PICK
Merus Labs International (MSL-T (Dead))

They did not take on all the debt of some others.  It is in Europe.  When US drugs come off patent, it is a patent cliff.  In Europe it is different.  It tends to be about 30-40% because it is more highly regulated to begin with.  Their earnings are more stable.  He likes the management team who have been buying stock recently.  They changed from just buying legacy drugs to buying growth drugs.  He thinks this growth strategy will cause a re-rating of the stock.

DON'T BUY
Nevsun Resources (NSU-T)

They acquired a copper mine in Serbia.  He owned it because it was trading at cash for the longest time.  Now it is a development play and he does not like copper that much.  He got out, but would not short it.

DON'T BUY
Prometic Life Sciences Inc. (PLI-T)

Blood plasma protein.  It is low risk in terms of getting approval by the FDA on their products.  But he has shorted it because it shows up poorly in one of his models in that it is expensive.

SELL
Rogers Communcations (B) (RCI.B-T)

The quarter was fine.  The wireless side was fine and there is a windfall from the Blue Jays side.  He is concerned about the cable side.  They are hitting an inflexion point regarding cord cutting.  Stay away because the of the cable side.

BUY
TheScore Inc. (SCR-X)

The core business has slow growth but they got to a critical mass were the advertising growth is significant.  He is looking at purchasing it again.  The valuation is sustaining them.  Fantasy sports people love it.

BUY
SNC-Lavalin Group Inc. (SNC-T)

He likes it.  They guided down but he thinks the intrinsic value related to the 407 and an activist investor will both benefit them.  At some point you will see SNC monetize their investment in the 407 and unlock value in it.  He thinks the stock is worth closer to $70.

WATCH
StorageVault Canada (SVI-X)

They are trying to roll up like Public Storage in the States.  Per capita, Canadians only occupy half the storage space that Americans do.  It could be a play on negative housing.  He has gotten out of it.  They will have to raise more money soon.  He may get back in again after that.

PAST TOP PICK
TeraGo Inc. (TGO-T)

(Top Pick May 26/15, Down 20.96%) The legacy business is shrinking, but generating nice cash flow and the data center business has some upside in cloud services.  He still likes it.  There is a potential for an activist situation in this one.

WEAK BUY
TSO3 Inc (TOS-T)

It has been a 10 year overnight success.  Sterilizing against super bugs is becoming a bigger and bigger issue.  The demand could be quite significant be the catalyst it needs.  It could be a takeover candidate as they become more native in hospitals.

DON'T BUY
The Stars Group Inc (TSGI-T)

He had been short before these takeover rumours -- long positions before that.  They have taken on a lot of debt.  If growth comes through, then they will have the ability to pay down debt and the stock will be a winner, but he is not convinced there will be growth.  It is a good brand, but online poker is flat to down.

DON'T BUY
Vecima Networks Inc. (VCM-T)

It is a well run company.  He got out of it.  They paid out a lot of special dividends and the stock did well, but he got out because most of the catalysts are out of it.

SHORT
Wajax Corp (WJX-T)

They are adamant they cannot cut the dividend.  He thinks they should because the cash flow does not cover it.  It is not on his list of safe dividend payers.  He is short this stock.
