He is most concerned with their vertical called Oil Country Tubular, pipes that go into the oil/gas industry, which has been down. They also sell into the agricultural industrial sector. Very well-managed. They will try to maintain the dividend, but with the weakness in their oil service side, he has a few concerns. They collect margins, so as steel prices are lower, they try to maintain the percentage, but the actual dollar amount could impact them.

Primarily a light oil producer, about 89% oil focused. Have assets in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Utah. Has gone through a difficult period during the last 12 months. Cut their dividend twice and slashed their capital budget. He was adding in the $16-$17 range. Would be adding on down days like today.

(Market Call Minute.) Led by Prem Watsa, who is bearish and has had some bets against the market. If the market has a downturn, those bets will turn out well.

(Market Call Minute.) Everyone is concerned about online pressures from Amazon (AMZN-Q) and others. The company generates a lot of cash. Not as cheap as it was.
