They should be doing well. Interest rates are creeping higher, which should be good for them. However, they are facing higher capital requirements, which raises some concerns. This is probably what is depressing the stock price. The stock pays a decent dividend so he doesn’t mind waiting until they fix their capital structure.(Analysts’ price target is 30$)

This company has had a hard time with aggressive short sellers. They have responded with insider buying and by raising the dividend. This is a conglomerate. They have some good businesses, but he always gets nervous with companies that acquire other businesses. He’s not nervous about the short sellers, thinks they’ve been proven wrong. The yield is quite generous, over 7%, but this is a hard company to analyze because it has so many moving parts.

He used to own this, got tired of them constantly raising money whenever the stock price went up. The balance sheet is healthy, the payout ratio is good, and the dividend is very generous (8.3%). He thinks several investors got sick of it recently, and that’s why the price has dropped.

This company’s loan business has grown so fast that this has dwarfed the rest of their business. They funded themselves with debt that they can continue to lend out for the next couple of years. He thinks the multiple is too low, that the market is not giving them enough credit for their success. The fear is that in a downturn, they will have huge provisions for losses, but he thinks they didn’t lose money during the credit crisis, so this fear is overblown. They control their book well. The stock price is volatile, so be ready for that. (Analysts’ price target is 49.20$)

Retail investors can’t buy commodity futures themselves. An ETF like this one can give retail investors access to the pure commodity space. He thinks commodities are poised to do well, and this is a way to ride the set of them. Investors will not get the leverage that they would get from buying the stock. If oil prices go up 10%, some oil companies will go up 20%. Investors will see the 10%, not the 20%. They also won’t get the risk.

He might be a bit early with this. This is a former income trust. Commodity prices (steel) were hurting their margins: they couldn’t raise prices fast enough. They had a very good recent quarter. Talk now is optimistic. He likes turnarounds like this. It’s not very liquid. Don’t chase it. Put in a bid and let sellers come to it. This is a cyclical business, it was a $6 not long ago. (Analysts’ price target is 3.75$)
