This is the old Easy Home where they had rentals of furniture. It was very useful for Newfoundlanders who went to Alberta. The company has switched very largely and its patent business is now in the lending game, and is pretty good. Dividend yield of 2.5%.

2017-10-12 PAST TOP PICK Bruce Campbell (2)

(A Top Pick Oct 26/16, Up 20%)  They now have a financial company who provide super high rate loans to people who can’t get them anywhere else.  They know they will have a big default rate and that is worked into their business.  They just went into Quebec and are seeing hug expansion there.

2017-09-14 PAST TOP PICK Bruce Campbell (2)

(A Top Pick Sept 21/16. Up 27%.) Continues to be a nice business. They keep executing really well. Do loans to people who don’t have the best credit, so loan rates are really high. They’ve recently gone into Québec. Trading at a great valuation.

2017-08-22 TOP PICK Peter Hodson

Business is pretty good and growth is impressive.  It is priced at 9 times earnings.  Investors don’t believe the growth or think the improving economy will work against them.  Investors should pay more attention to it.  (Analysts’ target: $40.00).

2017-07-25 COMMENT John O'Connell, CFA

Why would you want to be lending money to a society that is already one of the most indebted societies of the world, Canada, to the most disadvantaged people that are the least capable of paying their loans? The company makes its money selling couches and TVs, and lending them money to do so. Lending money to generate sales is never a good idea.

2017-07-05 TOP PICK Daniel Lloyd

An alternative lender in Canada, mostly doing what is called instalment loans. An interesting niche between bank financing and payday loan financing, where they will service credit ratings between 4.50 and 5.75. All of the lending is income based, so they do very strict income verification. A very, very well-run business with very, very high net interest margins. Dividend yield of 2.6%. (Analysts’ price target is $41.)

2017-06-23 COMMENT James Hodgins

Subprime lending with an average duration of 3-6 months. Extremely high interest rates for people who can get loans from banks. He exited his position because the stock had such a huge run, and he thought it was getting fairly valued. There is still a lot of growth in the company. Because these are subprime loans and his views on Canadian housing, he would have a kind of negative 1-2 year view on this. He will be watching to see if the stock takes a plunge before he gets interested. He likes management.

2017-06-22 DON'T BUY Bruce Campbell (2)

A very interesting business.  They used to just lease furniture and then grew their finance side.  They recently announced they are in Quebec. It takes about 9 months for branches to get up to a million in loan value.  It seems one of their branches got there in a couple of months.  They had such rapid growth that the market worries where will they get financing.  If the economy turns down their bad debt expense will go through the roof.

2017-04-11 COMMENT Cole Kachur

This has had a pretty good run over the last year or so, so it is a little expensive and he would hold off purchasing until it drops 10%-15%. It could come down a little. These growth names have to take a pause at some point. This is leasing furniture and high rate loans, and he is not a fan of the business.

In their last quarter they had a big dividend boost.  They are growing quickly but the PE is only 10-11 times.  He likes it a lot.

This is in the alternative finance business with loans from $1500-$15,000. Business has been growing phenomenally, about a 20% compounded rate from 2000. The stock is trading at less than 10X earnings. There will probably be a dividend bump this year. Dividend yield of 1.68%. (Analysts’ price target is $33.75.)

2017-01-24 BUY Jason Del Vicario

This is on his radar screen. Recently broke out of a trading range at around $26. He likes to see that a company is moving higher on above average volume. A good company from a fundamental standard, and the technicals line up well with that.

2017-01-18 TOP PICK Peter Hodson

This helps people finance purchases of furniture and appliances as well as giving short term loans. The short-term loan business is growing really, really quickly, and they get to charge a lot of money to the consumers that have to borrow money. Last year they attempted to make a big acquisition but failed, and they took a $5 million charge to earnings, a very significant hit. However, earnings still grew 41%, and this year will look much, much better, on a stock that is trading at 10X earnings and growing at a very, very rapid rate. Dividend yield of 1.92%. (Analysts’ price target is $32.33.)

2016-11-16 PAST TOP PICK Bruce Campbell (2)

(A Top Pick Nov 18/15. Up 12.38%.) He still likes this. Just reported and came in with fantastic numbers. There are 2 sides to this business. Easy Financial, the lending side, and the leasing side which is more the traditional business. He continues to see growth on the financial side. They made a real shift in their business by decreasing their Alberta business and increasing more of their Ontario and BC business. They stepped away from the rumoured purchase of the city book (?), which shows discipline by management. Still a Buy.

2016-10-26 TOP PICK Bruce Campbell (2)

This has 2 businesses, leasing and financing. The financial business has been the real big growth area over the last few years. The stock has continued to execute really well. They have great earnings, and it trades at a reasonable multiple. From a financial standpoint, if you want something that is outside of the traditional financials, this has a great growth rate, nice cash flow, and trades at a reasonable multiple.
