It was one of those stocks that just kept getting more and more extended. He exited 2 or 3 years ago. The buffet injection of cash is a good thing. It is a case of how much the culture and the company has to transform. You are also looking at an interesting time in the Canadian housing market.

He has no price target. It is another great Canadian healthcare stock that got hammered a short while ago. The reason for the most recent decline is that Central Medical Services has changed how they code some services. This company should eventually be at higher prices, but he wants to see the dust settle.

PPL-T vs. ENB-T. In the energy space these have been stronger performers overproducers. With interest rates moving higher it will be a mixed blessing for pipelines. Their dividend does not look as attractive, but as interest rates go up so are their allowed rate of return through the regulator. Look for which one has the most consistent track record of dividend increases and the best record of dividend coverage. If it is the same stock for each factor, go with it and if not go with the latter factor.

Historically it was the darling. It continued to expand production as energy prices went up. It did a lot of financing to fund its dividend and its expansion program. Then when energy prices came down it did not fare well and later did not recover with the price of energy. He does not know what is going to drive it higher from here.
