2017-07-31 TOP PICK Alterra-Power-Corp.
AXY-T
Rick Rule

It has been ignored by the market.  They generate big free cash except that it amortized out a lot of debt a long way out.  The dividends will increase. (Analysts’ target: $8.18).

2017-07-31 TOP PICK Bonterra-Energy-Corp
BNE-T
Rick Rule

A small exploration stock.  It appears the drilling is becoming predictive.  It is rare we see an exploration play attractively priced in Canada.  He seldom recommends exploration stocks in Canada.  This management team has been successful in the past in the same terrain they are exploring now.  (Analysts’ target: $23.25). (One of our faithful viewers has pointed out that BNN may have misinterpreted Rick's choice, and these comments might have been intended for Bonterra Resources (BTR-X) instead. )

2017-07-31 TOP PICK Proctor--and--Gamble
PG-N
Brooke Thackray

If you have strong fundamentals, technicals and seasonality, that is a good thing. There is an activist investor trying to take a seat on the board, and is pushing the company to move from 145 lines down to about 70 products. They are responding. They’ve cut costs dramatically. That is a good thing from a fundamental perspective. Seasonally, this is a good company to be in. Seasonality lasts until about mid October. It’s a place to hide. Dividend yield of 3.06%. (Analysts’ price target is $91.)

2017-07-31 TOP PICK Sandstorm-Gold-Ltd.
SSL-T
Rick Rule

It is a classic case of a company doing everything right after a halting start.  This is a superlative deposit in the control of a good young management team.  A couple of years out this stock will go much higher.  (Analysts’ target: $7.96).

2017-07-28 TOP PICK Agrium
AGU-T
Greg Newman

There is a merger on the horizon with Potash (POT-T) which he likes. The merged company should trade at $57. If we go into a more normal commodity environment for potash and nitrogen, this stock should be around $57. Dividend yield of 3.6%. (Analysts’ price target of $99.50.)

2017-07-28 TOP PICK Bellatrix-Exploration-Ltd.
BXE-T
Josef Schachter

The majority of this company’s shares are all in the US and Europe. They are doing production Q1 with 34,750 BOE’s and reporting the results next week. They are really focused for natural gas at the Spirit River. This could potentially be a double-digit stock by 2018, so if you can buy it a little lower than where it is today, it is a table pounding Buy. (Analysts’ price target is $6.25.)

WRG-T
Josef Schachter

This is a driller. 51 rigs in Canada and 5 in the US. They also have 66 service rigs. A lot of ownership by management. This could potentially be a double-digit stock. If you are able to buy this at $1.40 or less, it is going to be a great one for the next cycle. (Analysts’ price target is $2.50.)

They have the tentacles throughout China and other Asian countries, including Indonesia, Vietnam, etc. They have hotels, supermarkets, BMW and Mercedes dealerships, IKEA, 7-Eleven and even some Starbucks franchises.
