Cyclical. You have to look at energy prices to get a handle on this company. Really a one trick pony. Has limited upside at this price.

Likes the name a lot. Has the same risk across the board for the materials sector, i.e. economic slowdown. If you are buying for a longer term hold, you could buy now, or wait until labour day.

Has reached a point where support could be developing, but can't say for sure that it's going to hold here. A reasonable risk/reward.

On cyclicals he is not allowing for any value increases. Can be volatile but can see a 22% upside.

Chemicals are pretty cyclical in nature. There has been some pricing weakness in the polyethelene/ethylene markets which this company is a major player in. Prefers buying stocks when they are moving up, so this wouldn't be one they would be interested in right now.

Likes this sector. A cheap way to get into the resources sector. This applies to Agrium (AGU-T), Potash (POT-T), Nova Chemicals (NCX-T), or Methanex (MX-T).

Pulled back and is a Buy opportunity. Had done exceptionally well and then, because of high oil costs, tried to put a price increase through, but because of high inventory levels, customers wouldn't buy. Stock had fantastic 1st quarter results. Believes the chemical story is still in its infancy.

Just fell through its 200 day moving average. Had a parabolic move in 2004 with everybody getting excited about a breakout. When it has such a leg, it needs a correction. It has had a 1/3 correction which generally means a good time to get in when people are panicked.

Starting to look like a compelling buy. Stock went up a lot due to industrial demand for chemicals. It was really riding the resource driven wave. Started to see some weakness when people became concerned about high interest rates. Pretty good value now.

Have a good advantage in terms of their feed stock costs as they have a lot of cost for service regulated feed of raw materials in Alberta. The short term problem is that a few analysts have downgraded chemicals in general. Have a debt laden balance sheet. Coming towards the peak in this cycle.

Has come off with the energy complex, with the cyclicals. Had a great run and just corrected. Feels the economy is strong and this would be a HOLD.

The biggest chemical producer in Canada. Chemicals are a commodity that are in demand globally. Well positioned. A low cost producer. Have some long term contracts. Outlook is positive.

Stock has basically doubled in the last year and profit taking has probably been the reason for the recent drop.
