Peat moss. Heavily dependent on weather. Have been hurt by transportation issues in the past. They do very well keeping their costs under control. High payout ratio and high input costs.

Peat moss. Growing market share but his concern is too much financial leverage and too high a payout ratio. This has created volatility. High risk.

(A Top Pick July 28/05. Down 17%.) A quasi-monopoly. It takes the bogs and uses the peat moss to create mixes for home growers. It had about 45% gross margins and pricing power. Because it sells mostly in the US, the stronger Canadian dollar as well as transportation costs hurt them. Sold his holdings.

Their payout ratio is very tight. Cash flowing around $0.90 a unit. Dominant in the growing medium area and as climate becomes more extreme you are looking for more controlled growing medium for quality of product. Would like to see their balance sheet a bit better and can see that correcting over time.

A leading producer of horticultural growing medium. Own a quasi monopoly on peat moss. Was hurt a couple of years ago by the strong Cdn$. They actually cut their distributions. They are one of the few companies that can raise prices. About a 11% yield.

Avoids/underweights seasonal based businesses. Basically they are overpaying in the non-heavy cash flow seasons. Has some volatility to it.
