They don;t own any of the cable operators. The dividend is safe. A problem that they had for a while which was the under-funding of their corporate pension plan was cleared. If you are looking for an oligopoly with safe income this fits nicely.

Sold it in April last year at $49 as their reported earnings were significant below street consensus. The stock has come down quite a lot. It has a nice yield. He thinks it is going to be kind of dead money in terms of capital appreciation for 12 - 18 months. The UK purchase is transformational for them and it is good financially. The dividend is safe.

Forecasting commodities prices is very difficult. Copper in particular which is one if the main metals that this company produces has been low. If we get a soft landing then copper demand should pick up. China has been a bigger consumer and that demand is going to be there even at a lower growing pace. They are involved in many projects that will increase production in the future. The stock has been choppy as they had a sort of a Board coup with an activist investor being involved. Longer term the stock price will follow the fundamentals.
