$7.64 level is very strong support. Technical analyst would say this is a key decision point for the stock. It will either rally back up again or will drop below this point. If you Buy you have to be very careful. If it drops below $7.50 it could go down to $5 easily. 16% yield could be susceptible.

(Market Call Minute.) You can probably buy Energy Savings (SIF.UN-T) at a lower multiple right now.

Provides rental water tanks and smart meters. Distribution is fairly safe. Have some upside with new water heaters for new housing. Have quite a bit of debt.

Rent water heaters in Ontario, which is a fairly stable business. Easy to pass through any price increases. A lot of companies are trying to get into this market. Last report showed pretty good earnings.

Primarily water heater rentals in Ontario. With slower housing starts, there has been a bit of weakness. Diversifying into the smart meter business or it Have a lot of debt. Will take a few years to see if the new initiative works. Facing competition from new players and new technology.

Rental of water heaters in Ontario. Has provided a very stable income stream. He doesn't see the growth profile that he likes relative to the business risk. 9.2% yield.

Fairly well run trust. Business is sound, but also dependent on new home construction. US housing sales could potentially spread into Ontario, which is a concern.

Doesn't think there is a chance this will ever be purchased by private equity because it is not an operating business, just a securitization vehicle.

Their competition in Ontario was UE Water Heater, which was recently taken over. Water heater market is very lucrative. Generates a lot of free cash flow. Good pricing power. Starting to branch out into other areas. Could be a takeover target.

A sort of a steady Eddy. Has grown a lot by acquisition recently. Payout is 86% of distributable cash, but that is not a bad ratio for recurring cash flows.

Something like a utility play, because the cash flow is pretty stable. Could convert back to a corporation quite easily. Also could possibly be a takeover target.

Trading up at the present time. It is a very safe trust. The growth is low. It is a great place to put money because of the volatility of the market .

A fairly stable trust. Moves a little bit with the housing cycle but is correlated with interest rates. Has pulled back a little and in the low $13’s it looks attractive.

It’s main business is collecting rent on water heaters. There may be a price increase when it gets included in the index and you may want to consider trimming at that point and then buy back later.

Has been a very stable cash flow vehicle. Doesn't own a lot of it. Owns Select 50 (SON.UN-T) which has an SR1 rating where Consumers has an SR2. Can't understand why people in Ontario rent water heaters when you can buy one for a year and a half rentals.
