Investment Q&A

Not investment advice or solicitation to buy/sell securities. Do your own due diligence and/or consult an advisor.

Q: In a question from Chris on Jan 30, there was a listing of "buy and forget" stocks. One of them that caught me by surprise was ECN given its pretty dismal performance. Although it has bounced off its lows from late 2023, it has been a fairly poor performer down about 65% from its peak in 2022.
Do you think this one has recovery potential in the long term?

Q: i've leaned on for real time US and international stock quotes to use for my speculative plays. i like overall but i'm struggling to find a good free platform for tsx and tsx.v stock real time quotes (ECN for example today did not appear as 'trending' or a 'mover' on that platform and i have noticed that falls short on CDN stocks in that regard. i realize the team likely uses a bloomberg terminal but what good options are available for myself for CDN stocks thank you very much

Q: Can you please comment on ECN's recent quarter which the market does not seem to like. Are you still positive on the name, and if so why and if not, why not. Finally, on a scale of 1-10, (10 being your top picks) for small cap Cnd growth names, where in the pack would ECN fall. They treated me very well for the first few years but have struggled after the special dividend and I am now worried that my expectation that they repeat their previous performance may be ill placed.

Thanks for the objective view

Q: Hi There, regarding ECN and your recent comments, so I take it you are willing to hang on for a few more quarters then? I know you’ve always spoken highly of Steve Hudson and his abilities. Also didn’t they give notice earlier this year about a “Special Review” or has this come and gone with no results?

Ok thanks!

Q: Help me understand what the 2or3 key reasons are, to continue holding ECN, in addition to economic recovery and lower interest rates. Is economic recovery and lower interest rates the dominant reason to continue holding ECN? In your experience looking at a companies whose business was similar to ECN, how long will it be to see a share price response, to these reasons, if properly executed?
