2015-05-26 DON'T BUY James Hodgins

Have recovered from their problems of a couple of years ago. Auto sales have been incredibly strong both in North America and globally. This is a fine enough company, but feels we have reached a peak in auto sales. You are starting to see this in the inventory numbers of the manufacturers. He would stay away from the whole sector.

(Market Call Minute.) This has come up the ranks in his process. He has his eye on it. It might break out to higher highs.

2015-05-14 COMMENT Jim Huang

Thinks the bigger upside for this company will come from continuing improvement of their operations. They have been undervalued for a while to the group. Last quarter they seemed to be making some good progress.

2015-04-30 COMMENT Hap (Robert) Sneddon FCSI

Auto parts manufacturer which is well-liked on the street. The chart over the last 12 months shows that it has actually gone nowhere. The stock doesn’t seem to have a direction. A lot of volatility is showing from 2013. If you buy this and are a long-term investor, you are going to have to go through some volatility. The technical target is around $20.

2015-04-24 PAST TOP PICK Jon Vialoux

(A Top Pick Feb 13/15. Up 11.16%.) This has a period of seasonal strength from January all the way through to May, and the average gain per year is about 20%. Auto parts tend to benefit in the spring.

2015-04-23 TOP PICK John Zechner

The litigation is out of the way.  The stock is now cheap.  They are positioned very well.  There is 15% earnings growth.  They have big European sales and there is an increase in the use of aluminum in cars and MRE-T is best positioned for this demand.

2015-04-14 COMMENT Don Vialoux

Historically the auto season does very well in the spring time. He would guess it is probably above its 20 day moving average. Also, the strength relative to the TSE Composite is currently positive. That’s 3 positives. On the other side of that, stocks like this have a history of peaking out at around May of each year. This means we are okay for another month or so, but watch the technicals very closely.

2015-04-01 TOP PICK Patrick Horan

Produces auto parts in Europe, US, South America and soon to be Asia, for many of the auto manufacturers. It has probably been one of the lowest performing of the auto parts companies. New management came in and cleaned things up, taking up from a small-based company to a medium-sized base company. We have a positive auto cycle in North America that will probably last another 4-5 years with sales growing in Europe and probably Asia. Dividend yield of 0.95%.

It is more controversial than MG-T because it is smaller and they had some issues in the past with earnings and the executive.  It’s doing well so he would keep it here.

2015-03-13 PARTIAL SELL Gavin Graham

The auto industry in North America has been doing really well and stocks have benefited. This is probably in the 7th inning. Management has been a concern, and with new management, there is likely going to be an improvement in the way it is run. Very cyclical and not cheap at the moment. If you own consider taking some profits.

2015-03-05 WEAK BUY Brian Acker, CA

His model price is $20, or a 54% upside.  It is a cheap way of getting in the space.  But auto parts are in the 8th or 9th inning.

2015-02-20 COMMENT Bill Carrigan

Has not been a fan of the auto sector lately. The sector is rallying, but this might be the end of the series. Chart shows a price channel with a series of higher lows and higher highs running from 2013 on, so the stock is turning higher. When you have a price channel, you acquire at the lower part of the channel and give up some at the upper part of the channel. If you are a long term investor, you just stay put.

2015-02-17 COMMENT Colin Stewart

Canadian auto parts company, and is sort of the ugly duckling of the Canadian space. Magna (MG-T) and Linamar (LNR-T) reported very strong results and have had very impressive stock performances over the last couple of years, while this one has been kind of a laggard. There have been some issues with change of management and allegations by the former CEO, but all that seems to have been settled. He is looking at this one right now, and it could be a good opportunity because it trades at a discounted valuation to its peers. 1% dividend yield.

2015-02-13 TOP PICK Jon Vialoux

In the consumer discretionary sector and benefiting from the automobile industry uptick in the spring. These tend to do well from the start of the year all the way through to May, when you get a seasonal rise about 75% of the time with an average 20% gain. Chart looks set up to have that move higher again. It broke a down trend line and formed a respectable bottom. The momentum is behind the stock.

2015-02-02 TOP PICK John Zechner

It is a combination of value at 10 times earnings, and growth of 15%.  Most revenue is in US$ and a good chunk of costs are in CAD$.  There is not a parts manufacturer that is as well positioned for the use of aluminum as they are.  There is pretty much nothing, but upside even in a sloppy environment.
