STARS AND DOGS or maybe Stars and Tars?

The Globe’s stars and dogs for the week
JOHN HEINZL INVESTMENT REPORTER

FOR Utopia
A humorous look at the companies that caught our eye, for better or worse, this week

Johnson & Johnson (DOG)

Shares of Johnson & Johnson just kept falling & falling on Friday. Normally one of the stock market’s less volatile names, the health-care giant suffered its biggest drop in 16 years, hammered by a Reuters report alleging that J&J has known for decades that its baby powder contained asbestos. With the company already dogged by lawsuits alleging its baby powder causes cancer – a claim it strenuously denies – J&J investors are losing more & more money.

JNJ - NYSE

Business quiz! Shares of North West Co., which operates retail stores in Northern Canada and other locations, rose after: a) A mysterious bearded man in a red suit placed a large order for merchandise; b) Melting Arctic ice opened up a new all-season shipping lane, reducing North West’s transportation costs; c) The company posted sales growth of 5 per cent – beating analyst estimates of 2 per cent – helped by a recovery at stores in the Caribbean that were hit by hurricanes in the year-earlier period. Answer: c.

NWC - TSX

Signet Jewelers (DOG)

Those smiling couples in holiday jewellery commercials sure look happy. Jewellery investors? Not so much. Shares of Signet Jewelers have been sinking like a stone since the owner of Kay, Zales, Peoples and other bauble chains announced third-quarter results, including a loss of US$29.9-million, or 74 US cents a share. As competition from department stores heats up and Signet turns to promotions to drive holiday sales, profit margins could come under pressure in the fourth quarter, Signet chief executive Virginia Drosos warned on the conference call. Bah humbug.

SIG - NYSE

Under Armour (DOG)

You know when your favourite team is making a comeback and then, with seconds left, the other team scores to put the game away? Under Armour investors can relate: Shares of the athletic-apparel maker had been rebounding this year after the company cut underperforming product lines and took other steps to turn around the business, but the stock plunged again this week after Under Armour gave a disappointing long-term outlook. With the company expecting North American revenue to rise by only low single digits from 2020 to 2023, investors are giving up on this underdog.

UAA - NYSE

Just Energy (DOG)

JUST ENERGY GROUP INC4.68-0.76 (-13.93%)

Just Energy’s stock just got the energy sucked out of it. After shares of the gas and electricity retailer posted a total return of about 40 per cent over the previous three months, RBC analyst Nelson Ng cut his rating on the company to “sector perform” from “outperform." Even as Mr. Ng raised his price target to $5.50 from $5 to reflect the addition of high-margin customers and expectations the company will meet its 2019 EBITDA guidance, Just Energy investors just felt that now was a good time to sell. Just speculating.

The Globe’s stars and dogs for 2018

FOR Utopia
THE GLOBE AND MAIL

Well, that was a rough one. For investors, 2018 was the year it all went down – stocks, bonds, commodities – very little was spared the carnage. The year was essentially book-ended by broad market corrections, between which there was a meltdown in the Canadian energy market and a sell-off in big-name U.S. tech stocks, leaving the bull market looking more vulnerable than it has in recent memory. As a tumultuous year draws to a close, here is a final look at the stars and dogs of 2018.

Facebook (DOG)
FACEBOOK INC126.31-50.15 (-28.42%)

SOURCE: BARCHART

It all started so honourably, as a competition between former high-school acquaintances over who has the fullest, most rewarding life as evidenced by travel photos, promotion announcements and posts about the joys of parenthood. But after engaging more than one-quarter of humanity in this daily, demoralizing culture war, Facebook took a dark turn. How dark? By giving outside developers access to user data, the company allowed a quiz app to harvest tens of millions of profiles, which were then used by a consulting firm working on Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. While Facebook has committed to fixing its security problems, a continued string of data breaches is resulting in intensifying political scrutiny and calls for boycotts. It’s unclear, however, how disillusioned users who choose to leave the platform will inform the world they are feeling blessed. -Tim Shufelt

A description of bitcoin making the rounds on Twitter captures the cryptocurrency nicely: “Imagine if keeping your car idling 24/7 produced solved Sudokus you could trade for heroin.” Despite mass misunderstanding of how bitcoin works, it took on an unprecedented public profile last year when its price exploded to more than US$18,000. Criticisms over the high energy requirements for mining bitcoins, as well as its potential use in financing terrorism and the illegal drug trade, were mere background noise to what was seen by bitcoin faithful as the rise of a currency of the future. Its most enthusiastic supporters often share a distrust of governments and central banks, and, by extension, traditional fiat currency. That vision of bitcoin, however, is undermined by its wild volatility, which was on full display this year. Down by more than 70 per cent, it’s difficult to argue that bitcoin is a good store of value, even if it’s heroin you’re buying. -Tim Shufelt

There was one hell of an early Black Friday sale in the oil patch last month – a barrel of Alberta crude could be yours for the low, low price of just US$13.46. Some things that cost more than that: the average paperback, a litre of maple syrup or a decent lunch in downtown Toronto. An extraordinary confluence of bad fortune pushed Canadian oil prices to their lowest levels on record this year. A clogged pipeline network, refinery outages, a global relapse into oversupply, concerns over demand weakness, and record Canadian production all conspired to rack the energy sector with the worst downturn since the oil-induced recession. As a result, all but one oil and gas producer in the S&P/TSX Composite Index declined on the year, with MEG Energy Corp. posting a gain mainly by virtue of a takeover bid from Husky Energy Inc. Little for energy investors to celebrate, let alone all those kids with barrels of bitumen sitting under the tree. -Tim Shufelt
