2017-02-10 COMMENT Norman Levine

His issue has to do with 1) what is happening with the commodities they are in and 2) the geography that they operate in. Madagascar and Cuba are their 2 major markets. He would rather not invest in companies that operate in countries that he is not sure of.

2017-02-01 COMMENT Brendan Caldwell

Nickel mining in Cuba. The stock has been up a little over the last while. For basic raw materials stocks, so much is dependent on growth in Asia. Doesn’t think we are going to see the same sort of structural buildout of China for a while. Wouldn’t bet on this company or any other basic raw material producer, on whether or not we are going to see demand in North America.

2017-01-03 COMMENT Bruce Campbell (1)

He prefers Hudbay Minerals (HBM-T). Sherritt is nickel, which is finally perking up for the 1st time in quite a while. Their Madagascar mine has a cost of about $4.40. Nickel got over $5 recently, and this spent a lot of time below its breakeven point for quite a while. They have extended their bonds out 5 years, and have done a deal where they no longer fund their 40% of Ambitovy mine, they are only funding 12%, so the balance sheet looks okay. If you believe in the whole economy growing because the US is fiscal stimulating and these prices go higher, he still finds Hudbay safer with a better balance sheet with better zinc prices and a better copper price, and it could go to $10.

2016-12-05 BUY Don Vialoux

Just recently it moved above a key resistance level and started to show an upward trend.  Nickel prices are starting to move higher.  You are into a good position technically and seasonally these stocks do well now.

2016-12-01 COMMENT Ross Healy

This has gone into the tank, and the balance sheet has fallen away as they have taken off write-offs. It is now rallying with the metals. They are scheduled to lose another $.89 a share this year, which could erode the BV even further.

2016-11-30 COMMENT Lyle Stein

Management has done a great job in doing the things that are necessary. However, a tough problem to overcome is that they have a market cap of over $3 million, which needs to get to $1 billion before institutions get on board. They’ve fixed their debt, but they have to fix the mine in Madagascar. The only pure play in the nickel market, but unfortunately, too small of a market cap for many companies.

2016-09-15 SPECULATIVE BUY Daniel Lloyd

You have issues with it being leveraged, issues with nickel and political issues in Madagascar.  It could be interesting as a lottery ticket.  They re-structured some of the debt, but that does not mean the equity is going to be worth anything at the end of it.

(Market Call Minute.) Good, long term nickel opportunity, but an over levered balance sheet. A lot of risk.

(Market Call Minute.) They extended the life of their debentures by 3 years, but this is a company that needed 3 years to survive, so you don’t need to be there.

This has been a relative, long term underperformer. When you are an underperformer, you can stay that way for a very long time.

2016-05-10 DON'T BUY Bill Harris, CFA

Had owned the 8% bonds for very specific reasons. Cuba is essentially a ringed fence and so is the Manitoba smelter. There was $600 million in debt, and he thought the coal assets in Western Canada were worth $1-$1.5 billion. Bond agencies wouldn’t rate this because they didn’t know how to rate the Cuban risk. He didn’t care about that risk because it was offset by the Western Canadian coal. On the hint the company was going to sell the coal, he got rid of the bonds as fast as he could. You are now exposed to the Cuban issue, which is a wildcard. Madagascar, depending on the nickel price, might never make money.

2016-04-25 COMMENT Paul Tepsich

For 3 to 5 years? A very interesting company. Not overly diversified and sitting on a fairly good chunk of cash. Has some assets, nickel mining and oil/gas and power, in Cuba which have been phenomenal. Has fallen down on its nickel mine in Madagascar. The CapX, which is mostly behind them right now, has kind of blown their brains out. They have 3 bonds outstanding, 2018, 2020 and 2022, and are trading at roughly $.50 on the dollar, very, very distressed with a high yield. They are in a position where they could, and should, buy back debt in the open market. If the nickel market turned around, this has a lot of leverage to nickel.

2016-03-30 DON'T BUY Jaime Carrasco

We are getting a rebound in a lot of commodities, which could be the beginning of the inflationary wave that he has been waiting for. However, this would not be the way he would play it. He would use Teck Resources (TCK.B-T) as it is a much bigger leveraged type company. His company has this as a sector outperform with a $1.07 target.
