Re-engineered itself to focus on its test measurement and instrument business. Very broad product line in that space. Moved manufacturing offshore. Really a play on R&D rather than the economy. If you want exposure nanotechnology, optics, Intermaxtic biotechnology, etc. this company has products going into all those areas.

8.5% yield growth. They like the focus on Alberta. The company mainly has two businesses; one is trucking and the other is moving oil service equipment. Pay out ratio is around 65%. Lots of room for distribution increases. No debt on the balance sheet. Risks could be commodity prices or a slow down in the Alberta economy.( which he does not see happening) Paid $24-30.50.

(Top Short July 7/05. Down 11%.) It had fallen below the 200 day moving average and every rally that we had, failed to go higher than the 200 which indicated a negative trend. Historically this stock has an up tick at year end, but will then fall again.

In a long upward trend line, and you should never buy during this period. Currently, the stock is trying to break up. It could be a trade. If the stock violates the trend lines, be sure to get out.

Just reported a weak quarter. Earnings were down. Having distribution problems as they switch over to Great Canadian Super stores. Their margins are still the best by far. Feels there's another tough quarter coming, but they are good operators and will eventually get it fixed. Has been buiying on weakness.

The knock on this company had been that they were very concentrated in the Olds area of Alberta, but they have now expanded outside that area. Low declines and lots of drilling prospects.

A little disappointed by the last 3 quarters and its ability to make its projections. Has a great group of properties in N.E. British Columbia and N.W. Alberta. Multi-zoned which gives it a better chance of making its production.

Q: Preference between Novelis (NVL-T) and this company? A: Prefers the metal producer Alcan over the packager. This company, relying on aluminum prices, can be more volatile, but he's a believer in aluminum prices.
