Has a lot of trouble with this one. Doesn't see where growth is going to come from. Found a huge discovery of gas, but couldn't get a serious bid.

An OK company, but wouldn't be his #1 pick. Have a fair bit of debt. Their debt to total cap is 60% versus its peers at 37%. Have a high ratio of debt which came about through their Buzzard field.

A company that's sneaking under the radar screen which is one of the attractions to it. Reasonably fairly valued with a multiple of about 4.8. The big catalyst is the White Rose project coming on with production coming on in the beginning of next year. Production should jump from about 300,000 to 400,000 when that comes on. Cheap.

A recent conversion. Sort of struggled a little bit. They are spending most of their time exploring and tying in their fields instead of operating and producing. Costs per barrel are on the upper end, so as they transition the last half of this year, you'll see the company pop.
