WEAK BUY
Allan Tong’s Discover Picks A reliable and efficient way to get a piece of Japan’s rally is this tried-and-true ETF that trades in New York. EWJ stock carries US$11.59 billion in assets, trades at only a 5.32x PE and charges an 0.51% MER. Last Friday, it jumped 2.84% to a new high of $71.82 and changed hands at nearly three times its normal volumes. EWJ holds (in order of size) Toyota, Sony, Keyence and SoftBank with Nintendo down the list. EWJ tracks the MSCI Japan index. Read 3 Recovering Stocks to Consider for our full analysis.

BUY
Allan Tong’s Discover Picks Despite sector uncertainty, HD has been beating its quarters, the last four to be precise. In mid-August Home Depot reported YOY revenue popping 8.1%, earnings and revenu beats, and an 4.5% increase in same-store sales over the year. However, this last number wasn’t strong enough for Wall Street which expected 5%, so shares fell 4% on the news. There remains value in the name. Head to head with Lowe’s, HD wins in several metrics: profit margin of 10.55% vs. Lowe’s 7.41%, ROI of 36.61% vs. 24.11% and dividend yield of 2% vs. 1.55%.

BUY
Allan Tong’s Discover Picks Lowe’s company boasts 35.1% YOY same-store sales growth and a 69% leap in quarterly profits. The company plans to expand online sales and add private brands. True, DIY customers shopped a little less this spring, but those folks were spending more on big-ticket items. Shares of LOW popped 4% immediately after that report. The street still believes in the name at seven buys and three holds at a price target of nearly $230 that’s over 12% higher than the current level. Home Depot boasts eight buys and one hold at a price target about 11% higher at $363.43. Read 3 Recovering Stocks to Consider for our full analysis.

Based in Quebec, this maker of electric school buses and heavy trucks trades both on the TSX and Nasdaq and is a favourite of Mad Money's Jim Cramer. Lion has been on a roll so far this year. In January, Amazon ordered 2,500 trucks from them to be delivered over the next four years. Last month, Lion entered a credit deal worth US$100,000,000 involving National Bank among others, that will enhance the company's liquidity. At the same time, PEI ordered school buses from them.

If a young SPAC from Quebec is too risky you, consider one of the oldest car companies on the planet. GM shed its stodgy, dull image last November when it announced it would invest US$27 billion and dive into the e-car biz. Last June, they upped that to US$35 billion. They plan to bring 30 new EV's to market by 2025 and go zero-emission by 2035. Ambitious, yes, commendable, certainly, but do-able.
