The best run and most efficient raileway in North America. Had a great run and has been due for a pause here. In a long term uptrend.

The only tobacco company that he knows that did not diversify. Any excess cash is paid out to the shareholders. Besides their regular dividend, every couple of years they pay out a special high dividend. Tobacco litigation in Canada in miniscule compared to the US.

Somewhat of a defensive position. Not overly excited about the US stock market with the exception of a couple of sectors. Thinks the health care sector will do reasonably well. Obviously oil will do OK, but it's already had a great run.

Not sure that this sector is undervalued so much as he feels the next move probably will be led by the tech sector. If he was looking for any kind of a turn around in the US market, it would be out of this sector.

This is one of these trading range kind of stocks. Sure there will be some decent promotional news (no idea what) coming out. It's a growing industry. A momentum play. When it takes off, it'll probably go back to the $10 area and he would sell it again. Very speculaftive.
