2017-09-20 TOP PICK Medical-Facilities-Corp.
DR-T
Bruce Murray

They own source surgical centres in the US. They own 55% of the properties and the surgeons own 45%. The surgeons get paid, but they also have an interest in the business. They are mainly in the Midwest. A relatively small company. Management knows what they are doing, and will continue to buy more of these things. He wants to see a 5% dividend yield, which means it will be a $20 stock, and he will reduce his position in it. Dividend yield of 7.5%. (Analysts’ price target is $16.)

2017-09-20 TOP PICK Newell-Brands-Inc
NWL-N
Bruce Murray

This was a top pick in August. Then we had the hurricanes that hammered Houston. This company owns Rubbermaid and they buy a lot of rubber. They just put out a press release saying their earnings were going to be hurt because of the increased cost of rubber, and in fact might not get it for a period of time. Because of this, the stock has been hit and is now in the low $40s. He does not believe this is a long-term event, and he would buy the heck of it at this price. It is $3 of earnings and an extremely well-managed company. They own a plethora of brands. Earnings are $3 currently, and he thinks that goes to $4 in a couple of years. Has a $60 target price. Dividend yield of 2.2%. (Analysts’ price target is $58.)

RCL-N
Bruce Murray

The stock is down because of hurricanes; however it continues to plug away. Has a $135 target price on it. Demographic demand is strong. The Chinese are getting into cruising, which is a huge market opening up. Cruising will continue to grow. Dividend yield of 2%. (Analysts’ price target is $130.)

CELG-Q
Gordon Reid

This has done extremely well. It is growing quickly. Has a good pipeline with 4 drugs that he believes could be $1 billion or more in revenue. The biggest property they own is Revlimid. They concentrate on cancer treating drugs. Not inexpensive, but is reasonably priced. Thinks that next year they will do $8 a share in earnings, less than 20X, and growing at a rapid rate.

2017-09-19 TOP PICK Methanex-Corp
MX-T
Nick Majendie

The world’s largest producer of methanol, but it tends to track energy prices broadly. Feels there is excellent demand growth over the next number of years, which this company will participate in. They’ve done all of their greenfield expansion over the last number of years, so will be generating a lot of free cash flow in an environment where he expects methanol prices to be between $350 and $400 over the next 5 years. Dividend yield of 2.3%. (Analysts’ price target is $57.)

2017-09-19 TOP PICK Priceline.com-Inc.
PCLN-Q
Gordon Reid

This has been one of the best performing stocks in the NYSE’s history. Had owned this about 15 years ago at $19, but the multiple is lower today than it was then. They will make somewhere in the neighbourhood of $78 a share in earnings this year, and may even touch $90 a share next year. They’ve been very acquisitive over their lifespan. (Analysts’ price target is $2,100.)

2017-09-19 TOP PICK Peyto-Exploration--and--Develop.
PEY-T
Nick Majendie

The lowest cost gas producer in Alberta. He really likes management. They’ll produce BOE’s next year close to 120,000 a day with 53 employees, where over the last 5 years it was between 50 and 55. Very efficient. Natural gas prices have been improving lately. Dividend yield of 6.4%. (Analysts’ price target is $30.)

2017-09-19 TOP PICK Yamana-Gold-Inc.
YRI-T
Nick Majendie

Has been a disappointing performer and selling at a discount. There was a lot of worry amongst investors and some analysts about the balance sheet because of their building of the new mine Serra Morro, which is now 90% complete, and will increase their cash flow 20%, if not 30% when it is in full production. People are worried it might breach their debt covenants, resulting in an equity issue, but he heard they had hedged 60% of next year’s gold production, and 70% of copper production, at prices above what they had budgeted for. In addition, Serra Morro will see them increase their silver production by about 40%. Dividend yield of 0.8%. (Analysts’ price target is $3.50.)

2017-09-18 TOP PICK Boyd-Group-Income-Fund
BYD.UN-T
Jason Del Vicario

An auto body company, a very high ROE generator. The auto body business is fairly fragmented and this company has been a consolidator. He picked this because they have come off from their highs of about $102. A very, very well-run company. Dividend yield of 0.6%. (Analysts’ price target is $110.)

CCL.B-T
Jason Del Vicario

This has a core business in packaging and labelling. They did a transformational acquisition where they bought Avery Labels, and more recently bought Innovia out of the UK, which literally prints plastic money, in Canada, Australia and the UK.

2017-09-18 TOP PICK Constellation-Software-Inc.
CSU-T
Jason Del Vicario

Debenture.Probably the best capital allocator in Canada. He likes this debenture, because it has a high yield of almost 7%. It is not well known and is under the radar. It also has an element of inflation protection. The yield is rather unique in that it is set at 6.5% plus the trailing CPI inflation rate. If you think inflation is going to pick up, you will get yield reset every year. Yielding 6.3%. (Note: This doesn’t qualify for the dividend tax credit, so Buy it in an RRSP, RIIF or a TFSA account.)

ESN-T
Josef Schachter

It has rolled over.  It is the largest coil tubing operator.  They have a book value of $1.14 and is trading half that.  It went from 50 cents to 2.18 and is now back down almost to that level.  Over half of the stock is held by institutions.  He will put it on his action buy list in the next couple of months.  (Analysts’ target: $1.05).
