She has been adding to the name for at least the last year and a half. It is 90% oil and is leveraged to its price. They are in Saskatchewan and Alberta. Prior to the down turn in energy they were criticized for continually issuing equity to fund acquisitions. In September of 2016, they came again to the market, but to strengthen their balance sheet and fund Cap-X. They have lagged in this rally because of this. We will hear more about what the activist investor wants to do. She is going to hold on to it.

It has done very well. But she prefers Yum Brands in that space. She holds both the companies after YUM split. MCD-N has brought in some growth with menu innovation. They have room to grow outside of the US, but YUM China is a more direct play. MCD-N is probably fairly valued.

She has owned it for quite a number of years. It is the largest seniors housing player in Canada. She likes the demographics play. The company sold off all their US properties and they have been developing and re-investing the money. It has a 3.5% yield. It has been strong over the past three weeks. She would not buy it here, but hold it. Wait for a pullback if you want to imitate a position.

MSFT-Q vs. IBM-N. If she had to choose, her preference would be MSFT-Q because of their cloud business which will grow. IBM has not been able to figure out how to grow their top line. Both have cash overseas and will benefit if there is repatriation of cash policy changes.
