The best financially managed drilling stock in Canada. Has US exposure. Doesn't look like there's going to be a big ramp up. Too much built into the price. Prefers the producers rather than the drillers.

Activity levels are very low, so there are no earnings. It's a self healing process in that oil will start costing more. He doesn't own it but he owns one very similar, and has no problems with this one.

Driller and well service company in both Canada and the US. Bargain price. There may be a poor quarter or two. Looking for substantial drilling in 07-08 and even more in 08-09.

Drilling companies had a light quarter because of early spring break up. Expect there will be some warnings of missed numbers. They’re well positioned for gas drilling. Valuation is a little bit high but there will be buying opportunities over the next couple of months.

(A Top Pick Jan 25/06. Down 26%.) Basically what is happening with the service companies in Canada is the big pull back in natural gas.

A Buy under $20. This is probably the bottom of the market for gas. Prefers Savanna Energy (SVY-T).

Since the beginning of this bull market in energy, the play is that you either go with producers or service. Right now, the ball is back in the producers’ court. This is one that you just play on the cycle.
