Regurgitation of the price action, ratios and readily available data

Unfortunately like almost all similar podcasts the speakers don’t and can’t analyze the businesses and don’t have any idea about discussing the competitive advantage of the companies. Almost all they say is recounting what the price movement has been, what the p/e, ebidta or other metrics have been and “if they hit high end of guidance that’ll be good, otherwise not so good”. What is absent is real analysis of business and their products, their management, and their competitive advantages.

This week in our Your Stock, Our Take segment we look at Tidewater Midstream and Infrastructure Ltd. (TWM:TSX), a North American midstream energy infrastructure company in the natural gas and natural gas liquids (NGL) space. A listener asks what we thought of the company’s 2018 year-end numbers released this week? Our Star of the week is Village Farms International Inc. (VFF:TSX), one of the largest and longest-operating vertically integrated greenhouse growers in North America producing and distributing fresh, premium-quality produce – the stock is up 275% this year. But it is not cucumbers and tomatoes driving the growth, it is a foray into the rapidly emerging global cannabis market that has captured investor attention. Finally, our Dog of the week is Intrinsyc Technologies Corporation (ITC:TSX) a provider of solutions for the development of intelligent connected devices. A great balance sheet, solid revenue growth but earnings were down in the latest quarter. The stock dropped 13% on the news. Is it a Dog or an opportunity?
