(A Top Pick Jan 17/14. Down 56.73%.) They had a “customer concentration” with Samsung, and as Samsung rolled out their new device, which hadn’t been very successful, they chose not to use this company’s technology. Had felt this company’s technology will become much more prevalent with the emergence of Internet things. They have some good core technologies so there is a chance they could recover.

(A Top Pick Jan 17/14. Up 5.9%.) Still likes the company. This was a bit of a unique situation because it is a lumber producer, timberlands and they also own a large US homebuilder. They were divesting that homebuilder and he thought it would give a bit of a lift to the stock. Still likes it.

Getting to a certain scale where it is harder to move the needle with their growth, but they definitely have growth potential. Operates within Alberta, which is why he likes the smaller companies as they don’t tend to cross the borders.

Spartan Energy (SPE-T) or Cequence Energy (CQE-T)? This one would be his choice. Management team has been successful in a couple of previous iterations. The current pullback is because of the oil price. Because this company is run by a high quality management team and it has high quality assets, you can have a bit more confidence versus the average intermediate or junior E&P company that it will rebound on an oil price correction. (See Top Picks.)

Feels it is somewhat fairly valued, but does feel there is a long-term value proposition to the story. A lot of the problems they had in the past look to be behind them. They have been able to demonstrate that they can still operate and win business going forward. Good long-term hold. Be prepared to add when the market sells off.
