(A Top Pick March 14/17. Down 6%.) *Short* The company has reported twice since this was picked. Reported a very bad 4th quarter and a reasonably good 1st quarter. This revolves around the shift to passive investing, and the lack of a market for them to sell their financial products. A very competitive space. Any EPS growth they have is a result of share buybacks.

This helps with wheelchair assess ability, and things like that. A very demographically advantaged business for the next several years. It seems to be quite well-run and has insider ownership. Certainly seems like it is worth owning.

He is short this. They build and operate mobile hydro-vac trucks or excavations. They always had a competitive advantage in that they basically invented the hydro-vac truck space. Now though, anyone who can get financing, can effectively have one of these. They have had a very large number of executives leave over the last couple of years. He also feels they have the potential to be harmed by a border adjustment tax, as they manufacture in Alberta and ship into the US.

He is a gold bull currently. This company generates a decent amount of free cash flow. First quarter was an ugly quarter across the board and the stock reacted accordingly. One of the few names you can get in the gold space that generates a reasonable amount of free cash to the bottom line, which is something he focuses on. A reasonable long-term gold name to own. The net debt number is not something that alarms him.

The largest North American manufacturer of fiberglass underground fuel tanks for gas stations. A huge free cash flow generator. They just paid another special dividend after reporting Q4 numbers, as well as raising their common dividend again. They effectively generate more cash than they really know what to do with. A fantastic name to own for an income oriented investor.

He tends to favour engineering names such as SNC-Lavalin (SNC-T). Construction names are a lower margin business, and end up being hyper competitive, and results never seem to trickle down to the common shareholder. If looking for exposure to construction and stimulus spending, focus more on the engineering side.
