Share price is quite volatile. Would buy on a down-spike. Good news is that they have additional production coming on stream in the Caribbean in 2004 and in Chile in 2005. Very profitable and solid management.

Probably the least cyclical mining stock. Management does a great job in concentrating the aluminium business, lowering their costs and taking advantage of their integration. Likes their French acquisition. Look for a big pickup in earnings.

Had a big jump in earnings per share. In the short term, they are being held back because of their big US exposure through Harris. Feels their earnings are understated. Expect to see more dividend increases.

Well-managed. Industry is a little tough right now. A well focused, niche player. Have their own newspapers and magazines, which diversifies their business. Valuation is still at a significant discount to its large peers. A lot of upside potential.

Looked like it was going to break out of a 200-day moving average but fell back. Did a special warrant financing in October for sales/marketing of Pennsaid. FDA approval has been pending for a long time. Caution.

Missed on earnings in the third quarter. As a utility, they are regulated. A mild winter will result in lower power usage. Sees limited upside.

Regulated, so if markets improve their would-be limited upside. Expects the market to be a little uncertain in the coming months and this would be a reasonable play.
