Colin Stewart

Long ZYNGA (ZNGA-q) and Short Facebook (FB-Q)? A pairs trade that he would probably not put on in his funds. This one’s is interesting but its business model has run into a lot of problems and come under a lot of pressure. One of those sort of failed tech IPOs but is a very beaten up stock. Has quite a bit of cash on their balance sheet. Facebook, on the other hand is a really good business, great company but expensive. Has always found with pairs trade that trying to buy a value, kind of “not great” company at a low price and short a really good company at an expensive valuation to play that spread, typically does not work out well.

This could be a classic rounded bottom, or cup and handle.  Cup was August to April and handle SHOULD have been after that.  But it didn’t break out and moved down instead.  One has to be a little skeptical, although it could still break out.

Mohsin Bashir

Largest animal healthcare company globally. There are opportunities with their ability to increase their animal companion ability where there is an increasing amount of emerging markets moving to a higher standard of living and higher adoption of companion animals. 0.81% dividend is paltry, but over the course of time he believes this can grow substantially. This has to do with their ability to double their free cash flow of $500 million to over $1 billion inside of 3 years. His target is $37 for 12 months.

She held it in her portfolios because of the valuation and demographics.  She sold into that big spike on the announcement when they made an acquisition.  It has drifted down and now has come back up.  There seem to be a lot of synergies.  They are in the same town.  There is compelling value there now.  If you have a longer time horizon it will probably do well for you.  She owns another medical stock.

Explores ultrapure graphite deposits in north-eastern Ontario. Quite small and is still in development. Not quite at the producing stage yet. Just came out with a really nice intercept today and the stock was halted. As purity levels on graphite goes up, profits explode. He doesn’t know which way it is going to go. It is early days to find a deposit, drill it prove it and finance it. There’s a lot of work to be done. Speculative.

A northern Ontario graphite play. 99.9% pure carbon deposits. There is no other deposit like it globally. It’s a bit early days so there are more drill results to come in August, a 43 101 in October and then Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) next spring when we’ll know more. Could see this go a reasonable amount higher. Thinks this is a ”move on news” type of stock.

A Junior mine in northern Ontario, which has a graphite deposit of 99% pure graphite so they don’t have to spend money on an upgrader. Has been a great performer. They are waiting for the 43101 resource in October and a PEA in the 1st quarter next year. That will help to grasp numbers as to how big this resource really is. Now we just need the drilling and size to confirm and the stock will lift again if the number is good.
