A core holding for them. Just recently purchased a large waste company in the US and that expansion will continue their internal growth. With the 6/7% yield you will also get a 2/3% growth.

Waste management is a pretty stable business. Good cash flow generator. Made a big acquisition in the US with a lot of paper in relation to the size of the income trust and the market is just trying to digest that unit issue and that has been keeping the price of the unit down.

A recession proof industry. Growth is 4% in Canada and 7% in the US. Great marketing strategy. High internalization rate. Recently made some good acquisitions which will give them good leverage. Relatively conservative payout ratio.

A wonderful business. Has some organic growth. Price is dropping because of a large merger they are putting in place with IESI out of Texas and a purchase of Ridge Landfill in Ontario. Both of these moves are going to be very beneficial, however, they will have to sell a great deal of equity in the next month.
