Top Canadian Stocks To Own Right Now

I like to allocate anywhere between 5-15% of my portfolio to lottery stocks. Usually they are cyclical or have a lot of leverage. And most of the time there is some sort of catalyst that will unlock value on the horizon. I would not advice large positions in any of these stocks. It is also best not to spend large amounts of time analyzing them as they will be small positions and are depending on some factors that are hard to analyze. My analysis will be largely quantitative.

Civeo Corp

Civeo corp (NYSE:CVEO) is a provider of remote housing for the natural resource industry in Canada and Australia. In 2015 the Canadian segment generated 60% of EBITDA and the Australian segment 40%. Civeo has 19 lodges and villages with an aggregate of 23,000 rooms. Some numbers:

Market cap of $210 million Net debt of $340 million maturing in 2019 Tangible book value of $485 million (for what it is really worth) Currently cash flow break even Utilization of assets of 65%

This stock is depending on oil coal and gas, but not necessarily all of them. In 2012 the company generated $350 million of operating income at occupancy of 93%. That is a 0.6x operating income multiple! Which seems a bit low. Especially since Australian coal prices have rallied already, and they can probably survive this for a few years.

Top Canadian Stocks To Own Right Now: Transcananda Pipelines Ltd.(TRP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dustin Parrett]

    TransCanada Corp. (NYSE: TRP) just achieved a perfect Money Morning stock VQScore, making it a profit powder keg waiting to ignite…

    TransCanada is a Canadian oil and gas pipeline company, most famous for its development of the Keystone XL pipeline connecting Canadian oil fields to major hubs in the United States.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Enbridge just bought its stake in the German offshore wind farm projectslast year, initially agreeing to invest about $1.25 billion for a 50% stake. However, with concerns growing about its balance sheet and ability to finance growth projects, the company has chosen to monetize part of this asset. It’s also monetizing its onshore renewable facilities in Canada and two in the U.S. to bring in some much-needed cash. This decision to cash in on a portion of its renewable portfolio follows a similar plan by fellow Canadian pipeline giant TransCanada (NYSE:TRP), which sold its solar assets in Ontario last year. The driving factor in that decision was TransCanada’s desire to improve its financial flexibility so that it could “continue to build on our vision of being North America’s leading energy infrastructure company,” said CEO Russ Girling. What’s clear from these deals is that neither TransCanada nor Enbridge sees renewables playing a key role in building the companies they envision themselves being.

    TransCanada (NYSE:TRP) is a dividend lovers’ dream stock. The Canadian pipeline giant has increased its payout for 18 straight years, including 10.4% for 2018, and it now yields nearly 5%. There’s still plenty more growth coming down the pipeline given its forecast that the company can increase the payout at an 8% to 10% annual rate through at least 2021. That outlook is among the best in its peer group.
