Review of CAE Inc.

Feb 20, 2024

CAE acts as a software company that provides digital training in the form of software-based simulation training and critical operations support solutions. CAE is a decent value play given the high backlog the company carries, in addition to being relatively stable financially. Improvements in the defense and security segment's margins is a potential internal catalyst for earnings growth which would significantly improve the company’s bottom line, but this may be a goal that takes longer to materialize.We are maintaining our rating of a “B+” on the back of these factors.


Review of Real Matters Inc.

Feb 20, 2024

REAL operates in the real estate appraisal and title service industry in North America, the company plays an essential role in the value chain of the real estate market by helping mortgage lenders reduce the risk of lending and meet regulatory requirements. REAL is currently in a cyclical downturn, despite the effort to control costs and maintain a healthy balance sheet, revenue recovery was highly uncertain. The recent operating results indicate that the path to recovery could be longer than expected. We are downgrading our ratings by one notch to “B-”.


Review of Pason Systems Inc.

Feb 06, 2024

Pason Systems Inc. (PSI) is a leading global provider for data management systems for oil and gas drilling. Pason displays a unique opportunity from a Canadian small-cap perspective, as well as from a value perspective. We are maintaining our rating at a ‘B’, as PSI is still a fundamentally sound company that is heavily tied to oil and gas production.
