2016-11-03 PAST TOP PICK Jason Mann

(Top Pick Nov 25/15, Down 14.24%) It is a good lesson in cutting losses.  Don’t stick around and let your losers turn into disasters.  Cut your losses and let winners run.  He still has a small position just because it is so cheap.

2016-10-18 COMMENT Steve DiGregorio

Likes this quite a bit, because it generates quite a bit of free cash flow. He is sharpening his pencil and starting to look at it quite closely. They have a traditional print business of magazines, which continues to be difficult. However, they have been investing in packaging, which is a good part of the market for them to be in. Thinks it is going to do okay and that there is upside from here. Valuation is excessively cheap. Management is eventually going to switch from a print to more of a packaging. You are okay in this name.

2016-10-04 COMMENT David Newman

He is impressed with this. They have taken their plants down from 50 to something like 21, and at the same time, improved their margins dramatically. A cash flow generating machine, and they are using their cash flows to get into flexible packaging. He likes the story and what they are doing.

2016-09-14 PAST TOP PICK Jim Huang

(A Top Pick July 28/15. Up 32.9%.) A traditional printing company that has transitioned into the new product mix that is for the future. Still sees a lot of upside in this.

2016-09-14 TOP PICK Jim Huang

Somewhat volatile. If they have a bad quarter, the stock could check back 10%-15%, so you have to have a bit of a stomach for that. The dividend yield of 4% helps to make up for that. They have a lot of companies in the old business of printing, which is slowly decaying, but that is why it is trading at such a cheap multiple with such a good cash flow. Meanwhile they are reinvesting in a new higher growth business, and over time that should get much more dominant with much higher multiples.

2016-08-29 DON'T BUY Brian Madden

A legacy business in publishing, printing newspapers and flyers, etc. That business is in secular decline. They are trying to avoid that by making acquisitions and trying to get into labels and things a little more sophisticated. They haven’t demonstrated an ability to grow earnings. He would steer clear of this.

Printer.  The news paper industry is maturing so they diversified into flexible packaging.  5 times cash flow, 8 times earnings.  Decent 5 year dividend growth rate.

2016-08-17 COMMENT Colin Stewart

This has done a decent job of transitioning from an old line printing business and into packaging. They haven’t fully completed the transition, but as they do it will be awarded a higher multiple over time. Printing is in secular decline, and for a long time the stock has traded at pretty depressed valuation levels. However, over the last couple of years, people have become a little more interested in the company as they have gotten more into the packaging side of the business.

2016-08-05 WATCH Don Vialoux

Technically this has a pretty mixed picture. Chart has a triangle pattern. It has recently underperformed the market, which is not a good sign. Momentum indicators are turning down. Wait until it is breaking above the triangle. If it does that, then you can get a measured move based on the perpendicular line, which will give you an idea of what the target will be.

2016-06-23 BUY on WEAKNESS Brian Acker, CA

His model price is $32 giving it an 81% upside. Pays a nice yield of 4.2%. $14 would be a pretty good Buy. It is probably at its current price because of its yield. He would consider this as a weak Hold.

2016-06-21 TOP PICK Mohsin Bashir

This is arguably the last man standing in the printing business. Printing is in secular decline. The age of digital is upon us, and people are using less paper. This company prints magazines, newspapers and flyers. Flyers for grocery stores and pharmacy chains are publications that millennials prefer to read in print. The company is moving to the flexible packaging business and in the last 2 years have upped the revenues to 10%. Dividend yield of 4.15%.

2016-06-06 PAST TOP PICK Jim Huang

(A Top Pick May 14/15. Up 11.85%.) The print business still has a long tail, and this is the best company that has remained in the business. Have done a lot of things to prepare for the eventual phase-out by diversifying, especially in flexible packaging. Trading very, very cheaply.

2016-05-04 TOP PICK Michael Simpson, CFA

You want to own the best and lowest cost producer, so when the Toronto Star wants to close their big huge facility in Vaughn, this company is going to do that business. They are also big into flyers. Although there is a lot of digital media, flyers are still used. As discount grocers are getting more traction, flyers are very important. Also, diversifying into packaging, which is smart, and is about 10% of their revenue. Trading at about 5X cash flow, with 1X debt to cash flow. Generates a lot of cash flow, which they give back to shareholders in the form of dividend increases and buying back shares. Dividend yield of 4.05%.

2016-03-01 PAST TOP PICK Jim Huang

(A Top Pick May 14/15. Up 8.99%.) Basically prints newspapers and magazines, a dying business in many people’s minds. A declining business, but this is one of the best players that remains in the business because they have scale of operations and have better pricing. Have put some of their cash into a higher growth business of flexible packaging. Made a couple of acquisitions and thinks they will do more of that. Pays a very good dividend of 3.5%. Not an expensive stock.

2015-11-25 TOP PICK Jason Mann

Wants stocks that will benefit from a cyclical recovery, which he is expecting, but without breaking the bank while you wait. You can still make a lot of money in a poor industry, and this is an example of that. 4th largest printer in North America. They score absolutely Tops on valuation. Very strong ROE. Good price to free cash flow. Trades at about 5X EBITDA. Their strong balance sheet and cash flow generation has let them diversify into packaging. Dividend yield of 3.16%.
