Stock has had a rocky ride with concerns on its payout sustainability. Not out of the woods yet. Made a significant acquisition recently. Payout is over 100% for 2006 and this is not sustainable. Over the longer term, they do have a lot of sales growth.

Has dropped with other trusts and is around its issue price. Has exposure to US$ currency. Some growth to the story, but because of the US exposure and being near 100% payout ratio, It's probably fairly valued.
