Paying a bit of a dividend, in an uptrend. You can hold it for a long time. Pick it up at $19. Fundamentals are pretty good as well.

Drillers have had a nice move but it’s mostly in the pressure pumpers such as Calfrac (CFW-T) and Trican (TCW-T). This one and a few of the others have lagged a little and will start to play some catch-up. US drillers are starting to do better.

He detected what could be a turn. We have passed the worst part. It will have a positive impact on drilling. The stocks are just starting to react to that. He is thinking of adding to oil drilling stocks at this point.

Had a poor spring. Earnings seemed to be coming along. They are more active in the US. Thinks the royalty increase in Alberta hurt them. Still sitting with a lot of rigs on the shelf.

The biggest issue with the services sector right now is that they have had a very good run off a very low base. The time to look at them is in the late fall period just before they get into the drilling season.

Calfrac Well Services (CFW-T), Precision Drilling (PD.UN-T), Ensign Resource (ESI-T). Involved in fracturing, an expensive exploration/production service, which basically fractures rocks to release petrochemicals. With higher natural gas, companies are starting to use this service. Bullish on natural gas. These companies can be very cyclical and will fall off the table when energy prices weaken.

(A Top Pick May 30/07. No change.) Oil/gas service. International side of business has been doing well. Cdn operations has been weaker than expected, but better than what analysts had been looking for. Wait a month to buy on a pullback. Could take profits.

(A Top Pick May 30/07. Up 2%.) Can still see some upside on this one. The real knock on some of the energy service companies has been the drilling for gas but with a stronger improvement in the price, some of them will show stronger cash flows. Might add on a pull back.

Model price of $27.96, an upside of around 74%. Earnings are coming down. Would chance it here, but it could drop further if things get ugly.

Service/drilling area is still in very bad shape out west. Rig count is under 50%. Not a very rosy future for them. If it gets close to $20, considered lightening up.

(A Top Pick Aug 18/06. Down 16.2%.) Drilling has been a little soft on the gas side. Reported numbers were down. Trying to diversify their assets internationally. Very well run company.
