This one had a real run up to early 2005, cooled off and now is starting to run up again. Buy because of the uptrend. The uptrend is steeper than the overall market.

Benefiting from coal price negotiations going on now. Coal prices are expected to go up 25% to 40%. Not a fan of smaller coal exploration companies.

Operating outlook looks reasonable. Demand for met coal has come off. Expects a weaker year. Company has offered rights to unit holders. Exercising them and then selling is not a bad strategy. She is lightening up on her holdings.

A wonderful long-life asset. Was an ideal trust. Feels their profitability will continue to grow but sees the price of metallurgical coal dropping 20% this year.

A loading facility for coal. Have some exposure to the price of coal. Wouldn't add to it at this point.

A coal-handling terminal. Right now, its throughput is at the lower end of the range so your 4th and 1st quarter numbers are not going to be as positive. Has a fabulous balance sheet and is very well managed.

Fording Coal (FDG.UN-T) had guided lower in the production of coal to China who built up their inventories and are not taking as many shipments. This company is being impacted by that. Yield is quite attractive.

A volume story based on the amount of coal shipped out of its terminals. Volume has dropped. Expect to see substantial growth in earnings when coal prices rise and volume goes up. In the meantime, you get 11% yield.

Fell in price over the last 2 weeks because of less volume in coal shipments next year from Fording (FDG.UN-T). Not a major concern. Good price.

A good way to play the metallurgical coal without having direct exposure to the commodity. They have an external contract management that investors have looked at with a little bit of dismay because of the fees. Good management team. Payout ratio is about 90%. Doesn't see distributions going up. A good core holding.

Constructive on metalurgical coal going into 2006/2007. Good place to be in a rising interest rate environment. There is some upside to the story as they are looking to do a tax reorginization which could result in more distributable cash. Also looking to expand to help clear some of the bottle necks.

Operates largest coal loading facility on the N.A. west coast. Last quarter took a currency hedge loss. Also, last year showed a large profit from their Fording Coal (FDG.UN-T) holdings, so the comparison was a problem. Actually, tonnage and profitability is increasing. Still likes it. Note: Management's percentage of ABITDA increases.

Has been driven by high metalurgical coal prices. Distribution will be sustainable. Outlook is positive.

Coal is a very cyclical business and they play that sector through this trust. Expect coal to be very volatile. This trust is getting a little excessive in terms of valuation, so have started taking some profits in the last few weeks.
