Opportune time to start looking at natural gas. Expects gas prices to do better between now and early next year. Do you want big producers or would you prefer to be paid while you wait? His strategy is to get paid while waiting so prefers Enerplus (ERF.UN-T) with the 9% yield or Vermilion (VET.UN-T) with 6%-7% yield.

Has been particularly disappointing. Supposed to be a growth stock and integration of the Australian acquisition was slower than expected. Still think it's a strategic move. Likes the agriculture sector. Expect it will take till next year for earnings to start to fire up.

Likes the sector. Sees this as a core position and buys on pullbacks. Distribution of 8% could be cut as they haven't earned it in the last quarter but is still worth owning, as the business itself is very solid.

Almost at the point where you wonder if it's as a value play. External forces of competition and political pressures have been problems. He would wait until the dust settles.

Cenovus (CVE-T) versus Canadian Natural Resources (CNQ-T)? Both are good companies and both oil oriented with conventional and crude. He prefers something with a significant yield so he owns Canadian Oil Sands (COS.UN-T) instead. (See Top Picks.)
