- Visa (V) reported another strong quarter with EPS and revenue up 19%. Don’t be mistaken by its low yield; the dividend is up 445% in 10 years!
- Canadian Natural Resources (CNQ) and Suncor (SUN) are both sitting on huge assets in oilsands. The two also show a yield of over 4%, but one shows a better profile and more resiliency.
- American Tower (AMT) is a crazy stock; it increases its dividend all the time! It also shows a stable business model as it rents towers for cell phones. Will the acquisition of CoreSite distract it from cell towers?
- Granite REIT (GRT.UN.TO) reported another good quarter with revenue up double-digit (+14%) and FFO per unit up 4.3%. The REIT also announced another distribution increase of 3.2%. Is it all pinky for Granite?
- It was a tough year for Nike (NKE). The stock dropped by more than 30%, but is still up 75% over the past 5 years. Will China’s revenue down double digits bring more clouds?
- Boring works well for Waste Connections (WCN.TO). This low-yield, high-growth company shows great pricing power.
- Automatic Data Processing (ADP) is beating both EPS (+13%) and revenue (+10%) expectations and is driven by growth across all segments. No surprise it is one of the rare tech stocks to thrive this year!
Those companies are popular holdings among investors. But we believe you’re wrong. They might not be the worst choices ever… but there are better alternatives for each of them, which is why you lose money if you keep them.
