Into oil/gas production that takes longer to get going, but lasts a lot longer. Feels investors are underestimating the value of the long-term stream of income. Also, it is breaking itself up into an oil company and a gas company and these types of spin-offs tend to pay off.

You should have some commodities, but uranium is riskier. You could hold this one is a small portion of the aggressive portion of your portfolio, but don't bet heavily on it. Prefers Cominco (CCO-T).

Fertilizer companies are now in the high end of their cycle. New companies are trying to get into this industry. A good example of something that is in the media limelight. Not a great time to be buying fertilizer stocks.

Canadian banks are well established companies with good dividends and good long-term growth. Everybody should own 2 or 3 of Canada's top line banks. This one is a bit more speculative because of its brokerage exposure etc. Prefers Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS-T) but this is an attractive company.
