The Wutherich & Co. Composite was up 3.5% in January. This compares with the S&P/TSX being down 0.3%.
What a start to the new year! It seems like we have already had a year’s worth of volatility and news stories in just the first month. We should point out that the number for January was depressed by about 2% due to one of our large positions being halted at month end. Since it did not trade, the stock is being valued at the “Bid” and not the “Last” price that it traded at. Performance for the month would have been about 5.5% if we were to use the “Last” price of $3.87 for the shares rather than the “Bid” price of $3.15. The stock is Sangoma Technologies (STC-T). The company is doing a very large cross-boarder transaction that will effectively transform the company into a significant, global player in the “Communications as a Service” market. It will take several days before all of the regulatory hurdles are cleared and the stock can trade again. Until this happens, the stock will be valued at its “Bid” price.
