Moved up on income trust rumours, but pulled back on poor financial results. Has an interesting business that could potentially offer some value from a trust perspective, but fuel costs indirectly affect them. Feels that petroleum prices have moved to a new trading range which will raise their incremental costs which will squeeze their profits.

A roadside gas/covenience store. Recently acquired Circle K in the US which resulted in some one time costs which affected their quarterly results and the stock dropped a bit. Will take a couple of quarters to get integrated. Very attractive situation.

Being bought by Enterra Energy (ENT.UN-T). Feels the deal will be beneficial to shareholders, but not a big fan of Enterra as they had a very, very short reserve life. If you own, take the cash.
