Stock Opinions by Jackee Pratt

DON'T BUY
A good resource play. Good conglomorate giving morfe downturn protection, but can limit your upside. Would prefer an Alcan or Inco. Would buy in the mid $20's.

Auto sector accounts for a large portion of their revenue. One of the better managed steel companies in Canada. 3% yield.
