TOP PICK
He has lightened up on the gas-oriented trusts recently because of near-term weakness in gas. However, feels that gas will be going up and this is one of the better names. Recently made a large acquisition giving them good diversification.

Futuremed Healthcare(FMD-T) 

August 11, 2006

Basically distributes products to the long care sector. A play on the ageing population. 70/75% of its business is very stable. Has performed quite well. Also sells diagnostic equipment, which tends to be volatile. Expensive at the current level.

Paying a very high price in acquiring Find Energy. It will be a good fit. Good management team. Looking at their high payout ratio and increasing debt ratio, he would stay on the sidelines.

Had shorted this trust earlier this year because of its high payout ratio and gas prices were weakening. There are better ways to play natural gas.
