A Comment -- General Comments From an Expert 

Market. Has a top-down process where he is always trying to figure out whether he is offense or defence. Came into the year on offense, and moved into defence late spring/early summer. Recently a lot of his technical indicators have improved again, so has moved the portfolios back to offense around the beginning of September, and went from having a fairly high cash position to being fully invested. One indicator is "sentiment" which is hitting highs. Sentiment is a contrarian indicator, so he is always watching this. When it gets pushed to extremes, either to the downside or the upside, it tends to be a signal. You can't really time off of it, so you can't time a portfolio and decide now is the time to go to cash. However, it can be an alarm or a warning that there could be a bit of a pullback in the future.

COMMENT
Air Canada (AC-T)

Just reported earnings, which is what started the decline in the stock price, although thinks it had more to do with sentiment and what happened with the actual numbers. He is watching earnings numbers and trends and what happens with them. They basically met their numbers, but after the company reported, the consensus and expectations were so high they ended up disappointing. As the numbers keep getting revised up, expectations get higher and higher. Eventually they hit the numbers, but can't make everyone happy, so the stock price started to sell off. He sold his holdings just before the numbers came out, because it started to break down technically. It probably goes through a period of sideways before the next leg higher, providing earnings are higher.

Aurora Cannabis (ACB-T)

Building a massive facility in Edmonton. A little ahead of itself on valuation. Still has a lot of work to do to build that facility, and to get it up and running. However, they are very well-capitalized and have done deals globally, and are selling into other countries. This will probably be one of the leaders.

COMMENT
Alaris Royalty (AD-T)

Has fallen to its lowest level in a year, as a result of a Q3 loss. What surprised the market was the write-down they took on an investment. Most people thought they were going to continue to work it out and get something resolved. Going forward, most people are looking for them to continue to clear the decks for underperforming investments they've had, and the next step is what they are doing with new investments. Thinks the market is watching to see the new investment they did 3 months ago, and if the next one is the same rate and, if a trend, are they investing at lower rates than in the past, and if it's private equity big money, the effect on businesses. He is just watching to see what they do with the next deal where they deploy capital, and what rate it's at.

COMMENT
Aveda Trans. & Energy Services (AVE-X)

This business is interesting, especially if you look at 2 data points. One is the number of rigs that are working in the US, and 2 is the price of oil. They’ve been trying to consolidate a fairly fragmented business in the US. US energy companies are looking for service companies that are bigger and can operate in more territory, not necessarily mom-and-pop operations. The new management comes from big oil companies and have relationships. He expects the numbers, when they report, will be fairly good.

TOP PICK
Bewhere Holdings Inc (BEW-X)

In asset tracking. Started off with Bluetooth tracking where they would attach the device to something, and via Bluetooth, it would tell you where your asset was. Now they’ve moved into Low Power Wide Area Network, so basically a cellular chip, like a Sim card, which you are going to plug in. This expands the whole territory of where it can be monitored and where it can be monitored from. Cellular companies in the US are super excited about this, because everyone has cell phones. They can basically add a lot of new subscribers by basically charging $3, $4, $5 a month to track a shipping container, jackhammer, etc. They've signed deals with Bell and Wall Way out of the US, and are testing now with the big US carriers. This is just the start of where they are going to start ramping up.

PAST TOP PICK
Grande West Transportation Group (BUS-X)

(A Top Pick Nov 16/16. Up 92%.) This has continued to do really well. Looking at the evolution, they started off in Canada getting small orders from regional transit authorities, and then would come back with multiple orders for them. They continue to work their way through Canada, and are now in the US with their "Buy in US" certification. They just got a US order 450 buses, and are starting to do the exact same thing in the US.

PARTIAL BUY
CCL Industries (B) (CCL.B-T)

Probably one of the very few success stories in Canada, as far as making acquisitions, having synergies from those acquisitions, and then rinse and repeat. From a long-term perspective, management has done a fantastic job, and the stock goes higher over time. In the shorter term, they’re going to be no different than any other company. They are going to sort of bump around with their quarterly earnings. In the most recent earnings, they were lower than the street had anticipated, so the stock sold off. It is probably getting into a fairly good range now. If you don't own the stock, consider buying a half position now and then watch to add the other half if it pulls back.

It’s been an acquisition story and they’ve been buying anaesthesiology clinics using their stock as currency. That becomes difficult now because of the low stock price.

Intact Financial (IFC-T)

Switch bank stocks to this company? This is going to be a little more volatile than the banks. It has been a great, long term stock. Every time there is a natural disaster, everyone is worried about what is going to happen, and they just increase their premiums, and make more money the following year.

COMMENT
Greenspace Brands Inc (JTR-X)

A really interesting company. Had an announcement out today about their brands starting to gain traction. Expects this means that in the next quarter or 2, you are probably going to see a ramp up in earnings. This company has specialty organic brands. They’ve been basically buying the brands and integrating them into their distribution network. What he would like to see in order to take the stock from the level it's been, to a significantly higher level, it is for them to translate revenue to the bottom line, so that we would see a higher earnings number. We are probably not going to see that, but when it does happen, the stock should really take a jump. At that point in time, they would probably get taken out.

Linamar Corp (LNR-T)

Missed their earnings, so the market took it down significantly. It could have been oversold on the short term. Typically, with these types of scenarios, he usually gives it 3 days, and then looks at it. If he didn't own this and wanted to add, he would probably do it in thirds. One 3rd in a couple of days, another 3rd in probably a couple of weeks, and a final 3rd in about 2 months.

This is one he likes. If you have tracked this over the past year, you will notice that numbers, quarter by quarter, have been increasing. The numbers continue to track upwards. There is probably still room to grow. They are very big in asset management and continue to expand there.

Delta 9 Cannabis Inc (NINE-X)

Medical marijuana producer in Manitoba. This has certainly had a great debut. Just started trading this week. It shot up massively from where they last did their financing. Just did a distribution deal with Canopy (WEED-T). There are a lot of different M&A announcements coming out in this area. It looks like it might be a little ahead of itself, from a market cap perspective on the production they have. As well, he believes they need to raise money.

Just announced they were going to be splitting the company. He's been waiting for this for some time. It was probably about a year ago they said they were going to be splitting the company into 2 pieces. They’ve been working with CRA to get everything figured out. They are going to have a shareholders meeting and it is going to be voted on. He is surprised this is trading where it is, but it was probably a function of legacy issues, and is now probably a function of tax loss selling.

Had an interesting 18 months. The old CEO made some investments from the company, to a related party he had, and there was a lot of criticism. That got unwound and they replaced management. New management is on a growth trajectory now, and have had a couple of good quarters in a row. Thinks there is more room for the company to improve, both from earnings and some possible M&A.

TOP PICK
Reliq Health Techniques (RHT-X)

Has a monitoring software that ties into a number of different hardware units. For someone sent home from the hospital, it has the ability to monitor from the home. They have an Alexa type, voice activated monitoring system to remind them to follow procedures. This data is transmitted back to the healthcare team or the family in real time, so they know how your health is doing all the time. It’s supposed to cut down on readmissions. As opposed to selling units to every individual, the company has gone to the health authorities and they basically sell on a long-term contract. Have targeted the US to start with. They are in the process where they are starting to ramp up and hope to be cash flow positive in early 2018. Has a $55 million market cap right now, so there is tons of room to run.

Just reported and it looks like they beat the numbers the market had been anticipating. Expects the stock price to move higher tomorrow. On a longer-term basis, a lot of this has to do with the oil/gas market, as they do a lot of pipes. The dividend has fairly good coverage, so feels it is fairly safe with some possible growth.

TOP PICK
StorageVault Canada (SVI-X)

The only public company in this space in Canada, so they've been consolidating a fairly fragmented business. Have been growing organically and by acquisition. Did a big deal in May, and then financed this summer, and the stock has been sort of treading water since. You are probably going to see earnings ramping up, as they have integrated that acquisition and increased some of their revenue. It’s becoming more difficult to put these big storage units into places and, as a result they can charge higher and higher rates. Dividend yield of 0.5%. (Analysts' price target is $3.08.)

Spin Master Corp (TOY-T)

Just reported, and numbers were a little softer than what the street expected. Their numbers can be a little lumpy from quarter to quarter, and they trade at a fairly high multiple. When that happens, it is not surprising to see the stock fall off. Longer-term, this is a fantastic business. They are real innovators. A difficult business, because they have to be constantly innovating. They’ve done a really good job in making acquisitions.

Market.  We have seen the economy doing well and some of the stock markets breaking out.  He looks for relative strength in both technical and economic indicators.  The economic indicators were good all year but the market started to lose strength.  He is more or less fully invested right now.  It is stock specific in small caps.  The index is now starting to show strength compared to larger caps.  We are probably at the start of a period where small caps will outperform.

How accurate are fundamentals on a consumer trading platform?  It is not something he uses.  He suspects the data is pulled from a bigger source.  The data should be fairly accurate, but you could always do your back checks.  If you see an earning number, you could always pull it down from the company to verify.

It just continues to exceed expectations here.  It looks like the airlines globally are continuing to accelerate their revenue.  They figured out a few years ago how to charge for bags and make a tonne of money out of that.  They took some capacity out of the service and planes are fuller.  They are benefiting from the growing economy and they service global destinations.  He would not expect the same rate of increase as in the past year.  When airlines top out they will have a big pullback.

PAST TOP PICK
Tidewater Midstream and Infrastructure Ltd (TWM-X)

(A Top Pick Oct 26/16, Down 10%)  It is a function of a few things.  There is the whole overhang of the pipelines; ALA-T owns a significant portion and it looks like their relationship has been severed and that ALA-T may sell that piece off.  This one is going to continue to grow.  He thinks the management team will eventually sell to a bigger company.  Longer term it will continue to grow.

A Comment -- General Comments From an Expert 

Economy. Economic indicators have been streaming fairly strong through the last 18 months or so, and he can see them strengthening here. He likes to watch the City Economic Surprise Index. It tends to move in waves which are probably 6 to 9 months long. We are about 3 months into the up wave, so we have about another 6 months to go to see what happens on the down wave. Has moved to a defence positioning back in March, based on a lot of the market technical indicators. Lately, he started seeing some of the shorter and leading indicators starting to improve. This is probably around sector rotation as well as relative valuation between Canada and the US. He was about 40% cash 6 weeks ago, and is now about 25% cash.

HOLD
Air Canada (AC-T)

Has done phenomenally well over the last 1.5 years. We are starting to see real efficiencies in the business. This airline has an investor day coming up next week, and most analysts are expecting they are going to have some type of announcement about some innovative business they are going to do. The stock is reasonably valued, and technically it is very strong. He is continuing to hold this.

COMMENT
Alaris Royalty (AD-T)

This has been really timely and topical of late, because of a short report that came out, where they were called into question on what they were doing, which was followed by them announcing their biggest royalty deal yet. Over the last 18 months, it had a number of their royalty payments that haven’t been too successful. It has been a little slower than what the street would have liked.

COMMENT
Aphria Inc (APH-T)

If you went back to when the original companies first came out, this is the one that probably had the strongest management team. If you believe highly in the sector and are a buy and hold investor, you buy this and hold it, and it will be worth a lot more down the road than it is today. He has been out of this, but is back in it again.

TOP PICK
Avigilon Corp (AVO-T)

Makes high definition security cameras. They originally started mostly on the hardware side, but now are really starting to move into the software side. The artificial intelligence they have and the bundle between hardware and software is becoming more user-friendly, saving their users a lot of time and labour as well. (Analysts’ price target is $20.)

COMMENT
Bewhere Holdings Inc (BEW-X)

Has interesting technology that started with Bluetooth and is with a Sim card and cell phone connection so that you can monitor different things. The company is gaining a lot of traction, both from Bluetooth and from the Internet of things mobile side. This is one to keep on your radar and watch, because they are onto something interesting and it is a big, big business.

COMMENT
Bank of Montreal (BMO-T)

If you are a long-term investor, you can’t go really too far wrong with Canadian banks. They tend to be these really solid, steady growers. The multiples contract and expand. Banks have some of the best dividend growth history out there. If you are buying for a long-term dividend growth, it is one you just buy and tuck away.

DON'T BUY
Baytex Energy Corp (BTE-T)

Has been in the hurricane in Eagle Ford, have a huge debt, and with the recent increase in oil, there has been about a 10% pop in the share price. Buy, Sell, Hold or Short? At this point in time, he would not go into this. They have a fairly big debt position. They don’t manage their Eagle Ford operations, but own them with Marathon which is doing all of the operations. Any time oil ramps up, their leverage is going to help them out, but it also goes the other way as well.

TOP PICK
Grande West Transportation Group (BUS-X)

The stock ran up and made a nice move in anticipation of everything happening, and now it is sort of execution for the management team. The stock pulled back giving it a really attractive entry point. They are now aggressively moving into the US with their US partner taking bus orders and starting to sell. There is also lots of room for growth in Canada. The US has 2 markets, municipalities and the private market for rental car, transportation at the airport, etc. Management guides towards 200 buses out the door this year and 300 for next year. (Analysts’ price target is $3.83.)

CAE Inc (CAE-T)

Over the last 4 weeks or so, the stock has dropped in his rankings, which is based on valuation, as well as some numbers he puts in. He doesn’t have any specific reason as to why it has dropped off.

COMMENT
Cannabis Wheaton Income (CBW-X)

They’ve put together an amazing team, and seems to have covered all the bases. What the Street and investors don’t like is all the murkiness behind who got the really, really cheap shares, and as to how much the stock price has gone up. Expects it will remain penalized for a while.

COMMENT
Chorus Aviation Inc (CHR-T)

His style is to be active and trade in and out of this kind of stock. If you are a longer-term investor, you will probably be fairly happy with this company over a longer period. They have a fairly established base, because they have these billable block hours from Air Canada (AC-T), and now are starting to grow in other areas. Has a good dividend yield of 5.7%.

Evertz Technologies Ltd. (ET-T)

The stock has done really well. They continue to have a big backlog. Trading at a fairly high multiple, but considering their growth rate, it hasn’t been too bad. He has this on his radar screen.
