2017-05-25 TOP PICK Yangarra-Resources
YGR-T
Peter Imhof

The company was producing 2900 BOE’s in December, which went to 4000 in February. They are now producing 6000. Even though the stock has gone up a ton, the valuation has remained the same because cash flow generation and production has gone up as much, if not more, than the valuation. In the last quarter, they recorded $.13 in cash flow, which is up 200%, versus last year. Probably going to do $.55 in cash flow this year, so it is still not expensive. (Analysts’ price target is $4.)

2017-05-24 TOP PICK Altagas-Ltd
ALA-T
Zachary Curry

(ALA.R-T Subscription Receipts. 9/4/18.) This is part of a financing that was done in February in a deal to acquired WGL for $8.5 billion. This is scheduled to close in 2018, and subscription receipts are a way to play that. Should the deal fall apart, you get your money back. He looks at this as a “no lose” as you get close to 7% to wait.

CCL.B-T
Brian Madden

A great growth story. Have grown earnings at a 40% pace compounded over the last 5 years. They are in specialty plastics, in packaging, and in labelling. One of the premier Canadian growth stocks. Just closed on a large deal which should be about 12%-13% accretive to earnings. It gets them into these sexy polymer banknotes, which is under penetrated globally but is growing quickly. Dividend yield of 0.8%. (Analysts’ price target is $337.50.)

GIB.A-T
Brian Madden

Canada’s largest IT service’s provider. They do systems/integration, business process outsourcing and consulting. Has a very wide array of clients, the largest of which would be the US government, but they also cater to big multinationals and telecoms, energy, manufacturing and retailing. They are introducing more and more of their intellectual property into their clients’ solutions. They’ve also been a very good acquirer of businesses. (Analysts’ price target is $74.00.)

2017-05-24 TOP PICK Goldman-Sachs
GS-N
Zachary Curry

In their last quarter, they had some trouble with their fixed income and currency side, and he views that as a “one off”. The stock was down 5%. With the proposed US deregulations and tax reform, that would be even more positive for them. There is lots of M&A going on. This is trading at 12X earnings, compared to the market which is at 17X. Feels they will generate growth of 12% for the next 3 years. Dividend yield of 1.4%. (Analysts’ price target is $251.)

2017-05-24 TOP PICK New-Flyer-Industries-Inc.
NFI-T
Brian Madden

Just announced a $51 million contract from the Transportation Authority of Santa Clara. They manufacture public transit buses and luxury motor coaches, and are the dominant player in what is effectively an oligopoly. This is a backdoor play on the US as most of their revenue comes from state and local transit authorities. Dividend yield of 1.7%. (Analysts’ price target is $63.00.)

SWK-N
Zachary Curry

He likes this because it gets him exposure to consumer spending, home renovations and the housing market without having to take on 3 distinct companies. They just sold a component of their locks division, which he views as positive. They have a new component for their tool side, coming out with a battery that works with everything and should generate good numbers for them. A positive balance sheet and some good strength sales in Europe. Dividend yield of 1.7%. (Analysts’ price target is $150.)

In the last 3 months, we have seen one by one, markets around the world lift off and start making new highs. This bank gets over 50% of its revenue from outside the US. They have $1.4 trillion in loans outstanding. Have a great credit card business. There is likely to be significant dividend and share buybacks announced in June of this year, because they now have enough capital to return 100% of their earnings back to shareholders.

David Burrows

This fits into software as a service or Cloud-based software. They have software they sell to large corporations to help them manage supplying to their customers. 80% of revenue is recurring. 65% of the revenue is subscription based.

2017-05-23 TOP PICK Northrop-Grumman
NOC-N
David Burrows

A $43 billion market value. In the fall, and leading up to November, there was a big run up in several sectors, one being the defence sector, with a view that there would be spending whether the Democrats or Republicans won. A lot of defence stocks have basically traded sideways for the last 4-5 months consolidating that initial gain. This is one of the companies that is trading very close to its highs. A big contractor in the strike bomber and the F35. They are the leader in drone technology. A Triton drone can replace 20 aircraft. Governments try to save money and they want what they can get from drone technology. They are now opened up to sell to the EU and Japan. Dividend yield of 1.6%. (Analysts price target is $260.)
