2015-04-17 COMMENT Norman Levine

He is a firm believer that the federal government will be changing the exceedingly punitive law that says if you are convicted you will not be able to do business with the federal government for 10 years. Thinks this is great value here.

2015-04-14 DON'T BUY Christine Poole

Sold this when all the issues started to surface. It is always difficult to say if their problems are all behind them. Her concern is that what has happened could impact their future ability to bid. It seems like every few weeks something comes up. If you want to be in this area, there are other businesses that you could buy.

2015-04-13 DON'T BUY Colin Stewart

Doesn’t like their prospects. Has been plagued by management issues. They do have some valuable assets, particularly their ownership and some of their concession assets, like Highway 407. There is talk they may sell or spin that off. Many of the countries that they operate in are experiencing slowing growth. Also, the weak oil price is an issue for them. Fully valued.

2015-03-27 COMMENT Darren Sissons

This whole group has traded down. This is a cyclical. At these levels, and if you have the appetite for some political risks, it is very attractive at these levels. He likes this company moving forward.

2015-03-26 PAST TOP PICK Jeff Young

(Top Pick May 22/14, Down 19.14%) They are going to fight the charges.  The employees left in the company had nothing to do with it so it is a pity to punish them for it.  They are forbidden from bidding on Canadian government contracts now.  The valuation is reasonable.  They have infrastructure assets they are monetizing.

2015-03-20 TOP PICK Norman Levine

Highly volatile stock but everything in it is old news.  The latest thing to hurt them were criminal charges from the RCMP based on what happed to them in the past.  Canadian law states if you are a company and convicted, you can’t bid on government work forever.  The company has not been convicted yet.  This is an election year in Quebec and this is a Quebec company.  He thinks this law will likely be changed.  They raised their dividend and companies in trouble don’t raise their dividend.

2015-03-17 WATCH Ross Healy

The scandal appears to continue to weighing down on it.  It has dropped a long way from its recent high.  From a technical point of view he would look at $34-$36 to be a good cheap target price and would result in a good rebound.

2015-03-12 BUY on WEAKNESS Paul Harris, CFA

He likes some of their assets as well as the company as a general rule. Doesn’t own it because he thinks it is too expensive. If you can see it below $30, he would seriously look at it. The new CEO is doing a good job on cleaning up the place, but they will still have to face some of the stuff.

The problem is that they keep releasing goblins out of their closet. He wouldn’t be gutsy enough to buy this.

Stay away.  If this was trading in the US the justice department would shut it down and take away all its assets.  Stay away and let the dust settle and see what you have at the end.

2015-03-05 WATCH Hap (Robert) Sneddon FCSI

This whole space should be really good. You don’t want to see this making a new low like we did in December. Some of the indicators are washing out, but it doesn’t mean that it couldn’t go a little bit lower. Look at it on Monday to see if it has stabilized a bit. If you like this theme long-term, which he does, then you could get a good entry point with a good risk/reward in your favour.

2015-02-26 COMMENT Douglas Kee

Outstanding legal charges have hurt the stock. Thinks there is an overhang on this stock because of the criminal charges. The likelihood is that they will probably settle. Thinks the whole flow of bidding for them is going to slow down because of their problems.

2015-02-24 COMMENT Barry Schwartz

We knew at some point there would be a fine although we didn’t know how it would all play out. We knew they would be in trouble and it is now come home to roost. There are infrastructure assets there, which possibly could be spun out. Highway 407 is amazing. If it falls a few more dollars, he may get back into this one.

Clarity is still needed on some of the issues surrounding this company. This is a great company. Until there is clarity, it is hard to do anything on the stock right now. (See Top Picks.)

2015-02-18 TOP PICK David Cockfield

(A Top Pick Feb 21/14. Down 5.8%.) Still thinks this is suffering under a cloud, basically because of the bribery scandal. Thinks this is all past history. Good assets, including Highway 407. If you take those away, you have 2000 engineers that you are getting next to nothing. Yield of 2.2%.
