Business Strategy and Outlook

| Spencer Liberman |

Canfor is one of the largest softwood lumber producers in the world, with about 7 billion board feet of production capacity in western Canada, southeastern United States, and Sweden. Homebuilding and remodeling are the main uses of softwood lumber in North America, although Canfor does sell significant volume in Europe and Asia, with both making up roughly 30% of sales in recent years. As price-takers, Canfor and its peers see dramatic profit variations depending on the health of housing markets and overall economic conditions.

CFP’s stock style is Mid Core.
Style is an investment factor that has a meaningful impact on investment risk and returns. Style is calculated by combining value and growth scores, which are first individually calculated.

High-growth stocks tend to represent the technology, healthcare, and communications sectors. They rarely distribute dividends to shareholders, opting for reinvestment in their businesses. More value-oriented stocks tend to represent financial services, utilities, and energy stocks. These are established companies that reliably pay dividends.
