Wouldn't buy. On the surface, yield of 4.6% appears competitive. Cut the dividend by 50% in 2018. Strategically making the right moves by making acquisitions into high net worth asset management, which has better demographics and margins. But what's the return going to be? Earnings have flatlined. Value trap.

Great company. Overvalued. Pandemic and e-commerce have been a boon. Growth both organic and by its acquisition spree. Trades at 71x earnings. His preference is for Open Text, which has a larger market and has grown more quickly. OTEX trades at 14x earnings.

Great company. Likes it, but prefers Couche-Tard. Has grown nicely. Dividend higher than ATD.B. Both hinge on increasing electrification. Can buy it pretty comfortably here.

US Democratic sweep. This matters because of the green deal and electrification. A third of profitability is derived from fuel, and this rattles some investors. These fears are overblown. It's a consolidator, profitable, upsells items on a higher margin. Buy it here, sleep well at night.

Restructuring was a successful bid to attract more US investors. Long-term prospects are good. Infrastructure has a huge deficit in the developed world. Governments fund that gap with public-private deals. Brookfield is a leading player in that asset class. Great company. Comfortable buying here.

(A Top Pick Jan 09/20, Down 1%) Wouldn't buy again. Remains a good company, but Tim's is exposed to the breakfast trade, which has fallen off. Popeye's and Burger King have done well. There are better ideas out there.
