Review of Telus International

Jun 27, 2024

We have been covering Telus International (TIXT) since July 2021. We initiated coverage at an A- but have made two downgrades, for three notches total, to the point where we now have the stock rated a B-. Recent share price weakness supports this rating, being down 61% over the last year. The fundamental changes have been evident, and a shift in market dynamics paired with slower adaptation are potential reasons for the deterioration that we have seen. We are dropping coverage of TIXT.


Review of Descartes Systems Group Inc

Jun 27, 2024

DSG is a global leader in on-demand software solutions that focuses on improving productivity, reducing costs and enhancing the security of logistics-intensive businesses. The rise of e-commerce has been a long-term tailwind for DSG’s business, as customers increasingly demand narrower order-to-fulfillment periods, lower prices, and greater flexibility in scheduling deliveries, and a large number of organizations still have manual business processes. DSG’s valuation is not cheap, but justified by a successful track record of acquisitive growth. We are maintaining our rating at “A-”.


Review of FirstService Corp

Jun 27, 2024

FirstService Corporation (FSV) is the North American leader in residential property management and other property services to both residential and commercial customers. FSV is a well-run company that has carved out a significant position in the fragmented North American property management industry. Short-term catalysts to significantly move the stock would be acquisition related which are of course hard to predict but the company’s fundamentals remain attractive. We are maintaining our rating of a B+.
