Carfinco - Again A Top Pick

Carfinco Income Fund TSX:CFN.UN
Shares Outstanding: 23.97 million
Units fully diluted: 24.6 million


Carfinco got the nod yesterday as a "Top Pick" from Jamie Horvat of Sprott Asset Management during BNN's Market Call segment. Carfinco is owned in Sprott's Opportunities Hedge Fund.

Mr. Horvat mentioned that Carfinco was cheap at 9 times PE (Price to Earnings) also noting the recent news from the company that it recently increased its bank line to $130 million from $105 million with its banking syndicate. Carfinco will also drive growth with its move into C & D credit lending.

It was also noted that Carfinco has a history of paying out a 4-4.3% yield not including special distributions.
