S&P/TSX Global Mining ETF. Primarily a gold mining ETF so it depends on your view of gold. As and ETF product, there is nothing wrong with it. You could also consider &P/TSX Global Gold (XGD-T).

On his radar screen. Good multiple of only 11X next year’s earnings. With flat screens TVs and 3D TV coming it looks good.

GE (GE-N) or Intel (INTC-Q)? Both are reasonably attractive on a multiple basis but would probably choose GE, which is less of a commodity type play.
