The S&P/TSX Composite Index was down 152 points in early afternoon trading on May 11. Markets have been rattled after Colonial Pipeline was hit by a ransomware cyber attack. The pipeline carries just under 50% of the East Coast’s supply of diesel, petrol, and jet fuel. This has led to a serious emergency that has led to gas hoarding. Today, I want to look at three TSX stocks that are worth targeting in this dip. Let’s dive in.
Why Kinaxis is well worth owning for the long haul
Kinaxis (TSX:KXS) is an Ottawa-based company that provides cloud-based subscription software for supply chain operations around the world. This TSX stock managed to perform well in the face of the correction in March 2020. However, its shares have dropped 25% in 2021 so far. The stock is now down 19% from the prior year. Investors should consider buying the dip.
The company released its first-quarter 2021 results on May 4. Total revenue rose 9% from the prior year to $57.7 million. Meanwhile, gross profit increased 1% to $37.2 million. Kinaxis is projecting SaaS growth between 17% and 20% for the full fiscal year. Moreover, it expects an adjusted EBITDA margin between 11% and 14%.
Shares of this TSX stock last had an RSI of 30. That puts Kinaxis just outside technically oversold territory. I’m still bullish in the long term for this top Canadian software company.
