He admires the company. He has not bought any at this time, but it is quite interesting. It is one of the better managed mid-sized companies in the oil patch. We are going to see more M&A in the industry and this is one that could take advantage of that.

They just changed management from a gentleman that 'steadied the ship'. The new one comes from managing operations in Asia. He expects new management looking at legacy assets that have held the company back. It is one of his primary holdings in the financial group. He thinks they will do well in a rising interest rate environment. They are much more present in Asia than any of the others. It is well capitalized.
