Investment Q&A

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

Q: Was wondering about continuing to hold storage vault. Heard a report on The National about a large number of break ins at there facilities. I sounded the there security systems were bogus. This may come back to bite them in the but. They may have to do some spending to improve security. Any way, to me itís not such a no brainer as before, where all they had to do is pay the power bill to keep the lights on.

Q: Similar question to the one I asked yesterday. This is regarding some small/medium sized consumer and consumer-related type Canadian stocks. How would you feel about holding each of these stocks in your portfolio, on a 1-10 scale, with a 10 being you definitely want the stock in your portfolio, a 1 being a stock you want no part of, and a 5 being a stock you are basically indifferent about. As part of broadly diversified portfolio, looking for total return over the next 5+ years, comfortable with risk. ACQ, AW.UN, DOO, ECN, GOOS, HTL, LNF, MTY, SIS, SVI, ZZZ.

Q: In response to the question concerning risks to Storage Vault, you stated in your answer: "We see no particular reason why consumers would suddenly pull items out of storage in a corona world, though."

It seems reasonable to me that people whose incomes are threatened will be looking to reduce expenses. Even if their jobs are still secure, caution may prod them to review all costs and cut where feasible. A storage rental unit can cost $1,500 per year to $5,000 per year or more. People forced to stay at home may be spending some of their time reducing their stuff and possibly making room for things currently in their storage unit. Keep in mind, too, that there are calls out to support non-profits, charities, etc. with donations.

This is what I'm currently doing. Granted, this is purely anecdotal based on a sample size of one. But it merits consideration.

Q: Hi,

Self storage companies in the US and companies in Canada such as SVI appear to trade at very high multiples (i.e. P/FFO and P/AFFO). Why is this? I've wanted to invest for some time but am uncomfortable about the valuation . Is there something I'm missing about the self storage space that warrants these apparent premiums?

Thanks for your response.
