(A Top Pick Nov 26/08. Down 7.28%.) Has more oil than gas but gas is what pulled it down. Well managed. Distribution should be safe.

Longer-term the uranium market looks okay. In a shoulder season for uranium and the uranium price hasn't done much all summer. Doesn't expect it to do a lot for a while. Usually there is price firming in the fall. This company has some interesting things happening for it. They are drilling and there could be some positive results in the next little while. Consolidation in the sector could result in a takeover. Longer term play.
