A trucking trust. Very economically sensitive. Prefers TransForce Income Fund (TIF.UN-T), ATS Andlauer Income Fund (ATS.UN-T) and Clarke Inc (CKI-T). A good hold here, but on any rally, would transfer to one of the above.

Shoe stores. An excellent growth story. Can see 50% upside in the share price. They have incredible margins. Low-cost operation.

A very well managed trust with good underlying assets. They are right on the cusp in terms of payout ratio, capital efficiency and sustainability of their distribution. A great buy.

This was grossly overpriced. They then lost a major customer and took a big hit. May not have the highly stable cash flow that everybody thought so there has been a lot of institutional selling and hedge fund shorting.

Brewer in the lower end pricing. They have performed exceptionally well. Very well managed business, but from where it is trading here he would be a seller. Competition is growing.

A trucking business. Have shown tremendous growth and has a lot ahead of it. Expect it has a huge upside. Expect them to grow their distribution substantially (50%) over the next two years.

As bonds rally, yields go down which will put pressure on REITs. Foreign investors are becoming attracted to Canadian real estate which seem to keep the prices high. To buy, look for days when they moved down sharply.
