TOP PICK
Bank of Montreal(BMO-T) 

December 22, 2008

10% yield so you are paid to wait. Just issued more equity that allows them to have Tier 1 capital of better than 10.4%. This puts them up in the top 2 banks in Canada in terms of balance sheet quality. Good price.

(A Top Pick Jan 25/08. Down 67%.) Announced orders had slowed and came out with an earnings warning for 2009. Plants are still running full out. Trading at 8X earnings and with no debt, should be a safe buy.

General Market Comment 

December 22, 2008

Gold: In times of uncertainty, investors should look at gold. If you believe there is any form of inflation becoming through this injection of liquidity, gold should help you.

COMMENT
Baytex Energy Corp(BTE-T) 

December 22, 2008

Investors should be careful about oil/gas companies. They will all have to cut distributions further if they want to stay in the normal range. 16% distribution

Great asset base. Have a refinery so they benefit even when oil prices go down. Cut back on their budget so still have free cash flow. Very solid company. 7.25% yield could be at risk.

COMMENT
Suncor Energy Inc(SU-T) 

December 22, 2008

Oil sands. With oil prices down, its price collapsed. Will trade of oil prices. Had a big US following, which sold off when they didn't want to own oil. Thinks the selloff was overdone. Needs higher oil prices.

Canadian Oil Sands(COS-T)

Dividend fluctuates on cash flow and at $40 oil they are going to have to cut the distribution. At $60 oil you might be looking at a $.50 distribution and at $40 oil you might be looking at $.10. (Sold his holdings recently.)
