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.

This has made it into his Top 10 of his US 50 fund it has to be in the top 100 of the S&P 500 by market cap. He is surprised that it made it. It is a materials (copper) company. His model price is $146.68, which is a 29% positive differential.

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.

Extremely large cap. Enormous from copper standpoint. Have become geographically diversified. Very high quality company. Would be very comfortable owning it.

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.

(A Top Pick Sept 22/05. Up 28%.) Got stopped out in the spring when commodity stocks corrected. Large cap metals are a little less attractive right now.

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.

If you own this, you want to look at how well they've held up against their peers. This one has not held up well. Have had some additional operating problems. Would look to let some of it go on any strength.
