Being acquired by Pembina Pipeline (PPL-T) in a couple of weeks. Might be a very smart strategy to buy into this one now as a way of getting into Pembina. You get a little bit of accretion when it is taken over. Good defensive name with midstream assets.

A great company and business, and he likes the space. It is a mid-stream play on oil. It should do quite well here. There is good strong growth in cash flow and a relatively low payout ratio. Caution would be that the space has had a good run.

A kind of hybrid facility type company that has sold off production. He owns the convertible debenture, which is a safer way and still has pretty good yield. Good way to get some yield and have protection in case anything happens.

Mid-streamer that processes gas. Cheaper, about 2 multiple points below others. Has a lot more commodity price exposure (frac spreads) than others. Have also been able to grow their revenues outside of the commodity spread with long-term hedging and long-term contracts. Debt is much lower than peers.

They are relatively new in this mode and are relatively unknown. You are going to see multiples going up and that’s why she has been buying it.

Different then most energy trust because they are a mixture of midstream assets as well as upstream oil and gas. Midstream assets are very, very good but upstream assets are not as good. Midstream trades at a substantial multiple to oil/gas assets so you are almost getting the upstream for free. Very attractive valuation. 12.7% could indicate a cut as they are currently over distributing but feels it is already priced in.
