Assets are primarily in the US. Recently acquired a Canadian company with Canadian and US assets. Feels the payout ratio is too high.

Dividend is sustainable. Debt is high, but not out of hand. His favourite is Altagas, which he prefers.

6.5% debentures. Not really comfortable with their leverage. Their bonds sit at the bottom of the capital structure. Doesn't have any concern that they will be able to meet their interest payments or maturity of their bonds in a timely fashion but there will be a lot of volatility. Trade a little expensive for where they should.

Gas electrical generation. Management had estimated at borrowing at 6% but ended up paying 9.5%. Pay out about 80% of what they earn. It is not too concerned.

Marginal generation of power in North America at this point is gas fired. Has a collection of gas-fired plants in the US and is generally in the lower cost quadrant of generation in its region. Distribution coverage is much better than most power trusts. Has the ability to absorb some taxation but expects a modest distribution cut in 2011.

Have interests in a number of US power companies. Some regulation changes could react negatively on them but he doesn’t think so. Generating a good level of earnings. 15% yield but payout ratio will be getting slightly smaller as the earnings creep ahead. Not sure what’s driving the price down.

The trust has not really gone up, but there is a distribution and it has had an annual yield in the 10% area. Still is holding.

Have a portfolio of about 15 generation facilities in the US. 10.5% yield. Did a transaction yesterday that is immediately accretive to earnings, cash flow and distributions. In a sector where there is a huge commonality in types of underlying assets, there shouldn't be this degree of pricing discrepency and saw this as an opportunity.
