Got beaten up tremendously but has had a nice rebound in the last 6-8 weeks. About half oil and half gas and of the oil, you have oil sands and heavy oil as well as some international. There is a little bit of risk if the gas price retreats between now and end of October so there might be a bit better entry point. He would like to see it under $30.

If the Chinese took some of their African assets, it would be positive. He doesn’t like this company because he finds it so big that it is very difficult for them to get growth.

Just made a big deal with Inmet Mining (IMN-T). Market likes the royalty business model, in particular because gold companies have had a hard time delivering with cost overruns. Every time they do a deal, it generally works out positive for the stock. However, it’s almost 2X NAV while you can buy others at a discount to NAV. Quite expensive on a relative basis.

Likes this one. 6.6% yield. His only criticism is that they are serial issuers. Have done a lot of acquisitions and then they do an issue, which tends to flatten the stock out for a while. Had a blowout upside 2nd quarter, 10% above the streets expectation and then did an acquisition and an issue which dropped the stock price. They have a decade of possible drill sites so there is really good growth over time but they need to stop issuing.

(A Top Pick Aug 15/11. Up 9.14%.) Thinks they are going to raise their dividend 2% or 3% when it reports next week. Stock should be $85 a year from now.

(A Top Pick Aug 15/11. Down 25.54%.) This is as cheap as it has ever been in its history. It needs a catalyst and a good quarter. It is announcing contracts but that is not the catalyst. New CEO, which he thinks will help.
