Management has screwed things up and this is one you don't want to get into. It has always been thought of as a water stock but only 30% of its business is in water. 70% of its business is in Europe. If you are interested in water, look at Ecolab (ECL-N), Xylem (XYL-N) or Tetra Tech (TTEK-Q).

Really suffers by virtue of being a European large-cap. Because of the debt level and high dividend payout ratio, there is some concern as to whether or not the dividend is sustainable. Too early to get into this name.

Just did a complete reversal from a massive empire building by the previous management. This is probably a good thing but the dividend has now been cut. New management is on trial for the future.

Waste management, water, etc. 70% of its business is in Europe, most of which is France. Prefers something more broadly diversified on a global basis. If you own, consider switching into his Top Pick.

Announced they were going to do a reorganization about a month ago and recently announced they would have to take an €800 million hit this year. Doesn't think there is any hope for the dividend being maintained.

French environmental company with water (35%), energy services, transportation and waste management. Had a lot of debt and new management is trying to bring it down. Reducing costs and selling off non-core assets. Lower margins in the water business. Europeans are liberalizing their rail business in 2012, which should help them. Good entry level.

Weak euro should help their revenue as a lot of it is earned outside of Europe. Not a huge growth play. Pretty solid dividend yield.

French company primarily dealing in sewage treatment as well as water facility treatment. Underwent a period of expansion in the last couple of years fuelled primarily by debt. When the credit crisis began they had significant trouble. 9% yield seems awfully high. A lot of uncertainty at these levels.

(A Top Pick Aug 25/08. Down 52%.) A fundamental play on water. Management disappointed on the dividends so he sold his holdings. On his Buying screen but is waiting a couple of quarters to see what they do. Yield of over 8%.
