Properties in Quebec. Messed up in ’08 by cutting distributions twice. Were frozen out of the ’08 credit crisis. They are below 100% now. Thrown out like the baby with the bath water. It has to get funding to grow. The story has been disregarded, but now you have to take a fresh look at it. Trades at a discount. Slowly but surely it will recover.

Are trying to beef up their weak asset management business. It is the right strategy. They trade a rich premium to global banks but there is a reason for that. They have a stable environment, with stable assets and growth opportunities. Should hike dividends. 8-10% of return including dividends. Assets are fully priced in.

A Fantastic company. An infrastructure play. They are all price premium. At the end of their stimulus packages but they have great backlogs. When stimulus dries up they will not have as many global orders as piers.
