A fantastic, huge multinational industrial. Operates in a number of specialty industrial areas, as well as some consumer products. A classic, long term growth company, but given the run, you have to be really careful. Wait for some sort of correction.

Has had a heck of a run in the last year and he probably wouldn’t be a buyer today, but on a pullback, he would. A good, long term growth stock.

Osisko Gold (OSK-T) owns a fair amount of acreage in the Noranda trend with some pretty interesting early stage gold prospects. An interesting speculation, but not the sort of thing he invests in.

There have been outflows from US international investors out of Canadian energy, and a lot of the generals have kind of fled the small-cap market because of better performance of the larger caps. A lot of the smaller caps are experiencing money flow issues, and there are a lot of buyers around. This is a good, decent little company, but very, very small. It is growing steadily, but it is still too small to attract attention of the bigger investors. You have to be very patient with this.
