(A Past Top Aug 18/06. Down 18.9%.) Numbers reported were very strong. Outlook for drillers has been a little bit suspect. This company’s outlook is looking fairly good for next year.

Stuck in a trading band, $16.50 to $19.50. A lot of operating difficulties going into 2007 for the drilling sector. Cautious on this sector.

Took profits when it got to $25. One of the better companies in Canada. Good array of rigs, both deep and shallow. Shallow gas drilling has been curtailed which has hurt. A buy at $17-$19. You will have to trade the service stocks.

Every time there is a cyclical downturn in natural gas, investors think there will be no more drilling. There will be, and they're giving stocks away. This includes all the drillers such as Ensign (ESI-T), Precision Drilling (PD.UN-T) and Calfrac Well Services (CFW-T).

It is now back in the area of 52-week lows and that is always a critical test. If oil holds at these levels, this would be a great buying opportunity. Risk/reward is okay.

Drillers have had a great run. Had a lot of pricing power the 1st and 2nd quarters. A lot of the problems have disappeared and they no longer have the pricing power. Making good money, but won't see the type of earnings growth in the recent past. Prefers some of the others.

The “oil service companies” is one of his favourite sectors. Can see three more years of upside. Would add more are at $20/21.

Just reported and numbers where as expected. The problem here is with weak gas prices. There is a lot of postponing of drilling that has affected the service guys. Can see it flattening out here for a while.

Would like to get through the next couple of quarters on gas related stocks. This company has a lot of gas drilling, so would like to see how some of the drilling results look in Q2 and into Q3. One of the best drillers in Canada.

On a “return on capital” basis, it is very attractive. Has one of the lowest levels of debt of the service companies.
