The oil/gas area is going to be a tremendous sector for probably the rest of the decade. This one is particularily well placed. Expects that foreign investments are going to be paying much more attention to Cdn. oil and gas stocks.

An excellent company, but has missed on earnings and are having some execution problems, re working with some acquisitions. Still not very cheap for what she thinks for what could be a 2/3 quarter experience. Now in a "show me" stage.

Has had very disappointing performance in the past little while, primarily because the price of aluminum has not performed well, but has started to show some improvement. Represents good value here. Should continue to see strong performance at under 10 X next year's earnings.

Looking very closely at this one right now. Looks reasonable. The problem is the huge cash balance and what are they going to do with it.
