Being taken over by BIP.UN-T. He sold it last year at a 499%+ gain. He would look to take all cash in the deal. Taking BIP.UN-T would not trigger capital gains, however.

They have these hedges in place at $50 and the oil price is much higher now. They still have a fair amount of debt. He is happy to hold it. We will see more pieces coming off. It is still high risk due to the debt. This one might get taken over so he holds it.

(A Top Pick Sep 26/17, Up 12%) They are very, very diversified. They were doing a lot of trading of companies but that has largely stopped. With interest rates going up this is a good time for the stock to go up. It could triple if they start making good money on the bottom line.
