On the chart, copper has turned and it looks like it wants to go to $2.20. Prefers bigger companies such as this. Thinks it is an easy walk to around $50.

Pretty much a copper play. Probably a little too early for this one. If it pulled back 5% or 10% from this level it would be a nice place to pick up some shares for a long-term investor.

Gold and copper producer. The US version of Goldcorp (G-T). A bit bigger and more international. More gold than copper, but a bit too much copper for him.

Was mostly a gold stock and then bought Phelps Dodge, almost a pure play copper stock. Copper prices peaked earlier in the year but have come off. Because of demand from the developing world, he doesn't see copper prices dropping off.

One of the largest copper stocks in the US. Cash flow because of the high copper prices should expand over the next few years.

Just made a major acquisition of Phelps-Dodge. Because of the strong copper/gold prices, it has allowed them to pay back their debt. Good management.

Recently made a significant bet on copper by buying Phelps-Dodge near the top of the copper market. If you believe in copper and its long-term outlook, this is probably a great play. He thinks it's late in the cycle.

The chart shows a lot of congestion. If you own, watch for a breakout. Don't let a drop below its January low. Not excited about this one.

Never gets the proper valuation in the market because its Grasberg properties are in Indonesia. Stable environment and they are one of the lowest cost miners in the world. Volatile.
