Review of EQB Inc.

Jul 05, 2022

EQB has set a good precedent of being one of Canada’s top Challenger banks and being the first to move to a cloud-based system. The company operates at a low valuation and offers investors a reasonable dividend yield of 2.1%, with a long history of stable/expanding ROE, and growth in its revenue and earnings. We are initiating coverage at a ‘B+’.


Review of Enghouse Systems

Jul 05, 2022

The demand for remote work services and cloud-based solutions was pulled forward due to the pandemic, and initially, Enghouse benefited from this, but its services that allow customers to host private on-premises cloud solutions (software licenses) have taken a hit as more customers move to the cloud. Rating downgraded by two notches to 'B'.

Jun 16, 2022
