(NYSE: WMT) have spent several years beefing up their fleets of electric vehicles, and for the first time, the electric trucks are expected to cost no more than regular diesel vehicles. The electric vehicles tend to get about five times more miles per gallon than traditional diesel vehicles.

    Aimia (OTCPK:GAPFF) (TSX: AIM, AIM.PR.A, AIM.PR.B, AIM.PR.C)

    As some background, we are intimately familiar with Aeroplan and Air Canada (OTCQX:ACDVF) not just as investors but as extraordinarily heavy consumers. As both an Air Canada top tier elite and Aeroplan top tier member I generate well in excess of 1.5 million Aeroplan miles annually, half from flying Air Canada and its partners and the other half from spending. As consumers we were concerned with Air Canada’s decision (though we expect more details to come out that will alleviate these concerns) but as investors we understand that the fundamental business model of mileage programs are incredibly attractive and that Aimia presents an incredibly rare and lucrative investment opportunity for the investor discerning enough to dig into the company.
