Looking at the losers of 2017 (TSX)

Purely for reference – look at the victims of 2017 market action. A lot of gold, oil and gas, and Aimia!

Some of these are also on the September 2, 2017 screen I did. The only difference with this table is that I did not restrict revenues and had a minimum market cap of $25 million.

Entities included also are ones that have not been delisted (e.g. Sears Canada).

Any pickings on these entrails that are worth looking at?

  1. I own PMTS – what a dud! I also own preferred shares of Aimia and Dundee. I think both are good, obviously I am hoping for a imminent reinstatement of the Aimia dividend. That won’t happen til they announce a new airline partner.

  2. I’ve read quite a few recommendations for BIR (Birchcliff)….I bought 2000 shares at around $4.00 (avg 4.01) I also hold there “C” preferred.

  3. Amusing to see Aralez on this, as they were a “smart money” darling a year or two ago. I kept n looking at them and shaking my head, since the bull case seemed to take as assured a success which was predictable neither from the nature of their business nor their previous efforts. I thought I was dumb because I just didn’t understand what people saw in the company. Maybe I was dumb, and they were just unlucky!

    Aimia seems to be a newly-ascendant “smart money turnaround,” but the important difference–as I see it–is that they have a history of very strong cash flow., and a potential runway of same for some years. I find it interesting, though to have high conviction on it I’d need comfort on the real-world behavior of their liabilities, which I don’t.
