A Comment -- General Comments From an Expert 
Uranium stocks. This is not on a lot of peoples radar screen at the moment. After the Japanese earthquake, a lot of people focused on other directions. There is probably also a lot of tax loss selling. Uranium will have legs longer term but in the short term, there doesn't seem to be any momentum. If you have the time horizon of a couple of years, it would be a good time to get in.

TOP PICK
Antrim Energy (AEN-X (DELIST))
North Sea oil. Some production in Argentina but the real juice to the story is a development well that they are partnered with in the North Sea that is coming on in 2012 with a 2nd one in 2013. This will ramp up their cash flow and increase their production by 50%. Well-financed. Could pull back from here but would use that to accumulate.

BUY
Athabasca Oil Sands Corp (ATH-T)
Has an oil sands project that is slated to come on in 2014-2015. Great optionality to it and great leverage to the price of oil. At these levels, is pretty reasonable to hold for the next couple of years.

Gold developer but not in production yet. Has a project in Brazil. Potential upside could come from some of their other projects that they have going on there. Probably won't do a heck of a lot until production is in the headlights.

Likes the story. Service drilling company that is focused in South America some in Africa. Has a fair amount of debt and the stock has been under pressure. Did an acquisition that closed in September. The real story is their up-to-date technology that allows them into more remote areas. 80% of their rigs are contracted over the next year or so. Cash flows are going to ramp up over the next year.

Oil. This is probably in some kind of a range. Not sure it has bottomed yet or not. Might retest its lows in the next couple of months. Europe has some issues to work out as does the US. Economically sensitive commodities, such as oil, could just continue to grind away.

Timmins mine was started in Q1 of 2011 and they recently announced production was going to be significantly less than was expected. Mind start-ups are never smooth and you always have blips. There is now a credibility issue with management. Expects this is the bottom and there will be more upside.

Gold. In the last couple of months, he has been buying gold stocks. They've all had a good move so hasn't been buying in the last week or so but feels they are going to be a leadership group. Typically gold stocks perform pretty well in the 2nd half of the year. Gold tends to track global liquidity and money supply has been ramping up, especially in the US.

A Comment -- General Comments From an Expert 
Not bearish on any commodities. Natural gas has been a laggard but thinks the potential is there for a surprise on the upside. From a long-term perspective, uranium is reasonable but the one caveat is that you need to see how the Japanese situation unfolds. If everything is OK, it could be positive for uranium.

BUY
Allana Potash Corp (AAA-T (Acquired)
Ethiopian potash play. Had originally recommended it as he was positive on the sector and their valuation was significantly lower than their comps and were doing a lot of drilling and increasing the size of the resource and had only explored about 10% of their land holdings, so potential for upside was significant. At these levels he would consider adding as he still sees significant upside.

Cline Mining Corp. (CMK-T (Dead))
Emerging coal player meaning they will be ramping up production. A sweet spot as they get a re-rating plus continued strong coal prices. Broken its downtrend. Many coal/copper stocks peaked in 2nd week of January. Earthquake made a lot of investors think the market was starting to correct but a lot of them had already corrected. There has been a rolling correction from mid-January and he looks at as a bull market correction.

Over the last few years they’ve increased the resource size at Seabee and this year their Santoy deposit will allow them to increase production. Have a joint venture at another property, Amisk, which has a significant resource. Also an interesting property at Red Lake close to Goldcorp (G-T).

Manitoba gold. Interesting that gold prices have made record highs while this has had significant corrections. Was a darling for a while because they were finding high grade and increasing the size of their resource. Feels it got overvalued. Also an adjustment from an exploration development company to a producer. Current level is very attractive because of record high gold prices and the significant increase in their production levels.

You have a strong, steep yield curve, which is strongly simulative, Federal banks are fairly accommodative and earnings are growing. But we have had this big move off the bottom and then we have this pause, which is the market adjusting to lower rate of growth. Markets will not necessarily go sideways for an extended period. Emerging economies will lead us up. Is thinking of putting money back to work.

Uranium stocks in general: Not the most liquid market so once buyers decide to step in, they certainly drive the price up fairly quickly. Short term they are a little over bought. We are at a 14-month high. Long term they will do ok.
