It pays a reasonable dividend.  Their business slowed down recently.  It is not as attractive as it used to be.  It is a fine company.  The dividend is safe.

He continues to own it.  It was founded by the current finance minister’s father.  They are big in the outsourcing business.  They continue to grow in the Canada and in the US.  The dividend is very safe.  They are at the bottom of their payout ratio.  At some point they are going to raise that dividend.

2017-01-20 PAST TOP PICK Michael Simpson, CFA

(A Top Pick Jan 22/16. Up 34.16%.) A very solid, stable company. The original business was pension benefits, but have also expanded into employees’ system programs which is growing. They’ve acquired some contracts in the US and thinks there are good opportunities for acquisitions there. He still likes this. They’ve retained 97%-98% of their customers. They have the ability to grow their dividend at a steady pace.

2017-01-05 COMMENT Douglas Kee

As a consulting business, this company is all about assets, which are the people. There is not a lot of capital need in the business. Their cash flow covers the dividend and whatever they need to spend on R&D, etc. They are not going to grow a whole lot, but are pretty good about turning out cash flow. The 4.08% dividend is safe.

2016-12-28 HOLD Norman Levine

This company has a solid outlook, both in Canada and in the US where it is expanding. It hasn’t raised its dividend, but has publicized a range for earnings where it would raise its dividend, and it is right at the bottom of that range. As long as earnings are going to continue on an uptrend, he would think it should be raising its dividend anytime now. Dividend yield of 4.7%.

2016-10-18 PAST TOP PICK Steve DiGregorio

(A Top Pick May 31/16. Up 16.25%.) A business he likes a lot. Looking where we are in the cycle with potential increases from the Fed, you don’t want to have too much interest rate sensitivity in your portfolio. This one is really a growth stock with a yield. Sees this continuing to specifically grow in the US which he likes. Also, in 2007-2008, the business actually grew. Whether you are hiring or firing people, you need either services. The yield is safe.

2016-09-14 HOLD Jim Huang

A pension consultant, but have also gone into things like employee services. They’ve expanded into the US. They execute well and have a very stable business model. If they can continue carrying on in their business and not suffer too many losses from Obamacare, that’s pretty good.

2016-09-09 HOLD Norman Levine

This has been a beneficiary of the chase for yield, because of its healthy dividend. Earnings are growing and it hasn’t raised its dividend in quite a number of years, but the payout ratio is right at the bottom end of their window. Any quarter now we should see a positive move in the dividend. However, the stock is not a bargain anymore.

2016-07-18 BUY Ben Cheng

Tens of thousands of employees laid off in Alberta represent a source of growth to them.  When oil and gas companies start hiring again this will be a source of business for MSI-T.
