KeyStone’s Your Stock Our Take is MTY Food Group Inc. (MTY:TSX), our Star is Aritzia Inc. (ATZ:TSX) & our Dog is SNC-Lavalin Group Inc. (SNC:TSX).

This week in our Your Stock, Our Take segment we look at MTY Food Group Inc. (MTY:TSX), a Canadian-based franchisor operating in the quick service food industry in both the U.S. and Canadian markets – one of the largest in this segment and a true Canadian success story that really flies under the radar. This week, the company reported remarkable strong earnings growth in its third quarter which handily beat street estimates – the stock has jumped 40% since May – a listener asks if we still like the stock. Our Star of the week is Aritzia Inc. (ATZ:TSX), a vertically integrated, innovative design house of fashion brands, which boasts over 90 stores and a solid online presence and, most importantly happens to be a favourite shopping spot for a prominent member of my household. The stock posted a nice gain this week, in what was generally a poor week for North American markets – one of the worst in recent memory. Finally, our Dog of the week is SNC-Lavalin Group Inc. (SNC:TSX), the embattled global engineering and construction company saw its stock drop 13% mid-week after it was reported – that federal prosecutors would not agree to negotiate a deal in regards to alleged illegal dealings with public officials in Libya between 2001 and 2011. The market hates uncertainty and the speculation of a trial is weighing on the stock. Is it a Dog or an opportunity?
