Q: Peter and His Wonder Team
I have to sell one of these stocks to meet my RIF withdrawal obligation for 2023. I have owned them all for years...CET is down; QST down more; QTRH up slightly. Of course since it is a RIF account there is no tax loss credit. So if you had to sell one...what do do think would be the best choice. Thanks for your opinion which is always objective and sobering which helps in my decision in which I take full responsibility.

Q: So far it has been an eventual year to date for Quarterhill -- gone are the CEO , the dividend , the CFO and the WiLan Division . The sale of WiLan seemed like an overly complicated transaction -- what is your opinion of the price of $71m they received ?
Quarterhill was a top pick yesterday on BNN , and at close of business today the stock was up 20% in two days . What is your current opinion of QTRH -- are they perhaps a candidate for going private , or maybe a takeover target ?

Q: how do you view the latest earnings? on the surface they seem poor given the lumpiness of their Wi-Lan division. With a search for a new CEO on, and dividend cut, things don't look so good but I do see a healthy $500 million backlog in their electronic road tolling division. I would consider this a hold esp given their $57 million cash on hand. What is your opinion?

Q: Hi Team
What are your feelings about these 2 stocks Qtrh has taken a beating the last week, all I can see is that the ceo has resigned or has been fired. I don't see this as such a negative, since the stock has not fared well. They always babble about a spin-off, but nothing happens
Cfx is also down, I know that they closed some plants, how does the future look?

Q: Dear 5i team.

I'm taking another look at QTRH, but I'm confused by the last year or so of Q+A.
In the latest Qtr, they reported what looked like breakout numbers. But, as I look fwd to next qtr, revenue goes back close to previous running rates. Can you explain what's causing the lumpy numbers? (did they sell wilan?)
In previous questions I believe the estimate was 1.50/share in cash? Is this still the case? If so, at 1.75 today, looks like a screaming buy with a 2.5% yield. What am I missing please.

Many thanks for your help.

Q: What are your thoughts about these comments posted by an analyst on BNN Bloomberg yesterday? Is it a speculative buy?

"Quarterhill was formerly called Wilan and owns an IP patent licensing portfolio that continues to generate lots of cash. The company has been using this cash to acquire companies in the intelligent transportation systems (ITS) industry. For example, they recently acquired ETC, which processes 17 per cent of all electronic toll lanes in the U.S. through its cloud-based platform, and they also acquired International Road Dynamics, a world leader in weight-in-motion technology and traffic data collection.
The exciting news in December is that Quarterhill announced a strategic review to sell its IP patent portfolio and become a pure play ITS company. We believe that the IP patent portfolio alone is worth what the stock is currently trading at now, and that the ITS business is worth at least another $2.50 per share. So, the stock should be trading at around $5 versus $2.60 today. We really like the upside on this stock and the fact that there is a big catalyst coming to unlock value."
