He likes REITs where he is looking from yield perspective but he does not like the price momentum on this one so it is a small short. It has a low return on equity.

Another company that decided to change its name. It has rolled over so has negative price momentum. It is reasonably priced and beat on the recent quarter but the volatility and price momentum keep him away from it.

He was long on it for quite a while. It has been a great trade, but it has caught up to the NASDAQ strength and it has got too expensive for him even if not so relative to other tech stocks. It has great return on equity. It has a decent quarter and the balance sheet is pristine. A better yield would be helpful but it is too expensive right now for him.

(A Top Pick Jun 28/17, Up 30%) This is the non-bank financial that he likes a lot. They do not insure high risk mortgages and this was an issue with Home Capital and it caused the stock to sell off at the time he recommended this one. It is still cheap overall with a PE of 9 times. It has a solid balance sheet, and he still likes it. The concerns that kept it cheap are now behind them.

(A Top Pick Jun 28/17, Down 16%) It was a disappointment. It has a reasonable combination of price, price momentum and he sold it. It still has good return on equity but it missed on earnings due to a problem with integrating a new SAP system. There is always a chance that Rogers takes them in.

SHORT (A Top Pick Jun 28/17, Down 42%) It's been a wild ride. It has come off more recently. The thesis has not changed on this stock. It has terrible valuation with virtually no return on equity. It missed on the most recent quarter. It is not cheap and a highly volatile stock.

He has a small short in it. There was a triple whammy. Poor price momentum, valuation is still not cheap enough and it has become quite volatile. It used to be a stable stock. ROE is okay. It tells you they have too much debt. 13 times earnings. He needs to see stabilization in the business. The yield does not justify him buying it here. The real problem is that they just have not recovered from the financial side of their business.
