2006-06-19 WATCH Nova Chemicals Corp.
NCX-T
Brian Acker, CA His model price is $39 and has dropped as earnings estimates have come down. As a positive differential of 26%. Looks interesting, but the fundamental value is eroding with the earnings.

2006-06-19 HOLD Petro-Canada
PCA-T
Laura Wallace Quality company. The problem facing them right now is that it has been promising production growth but hasn't delivered. With Terra Nova going dark again, there is some question as to when that production growth will come.

2006-06-19 WEAK BUY Precision Drilling
PD-T
Laura Wallace The great thing about an oil service company is that oil companies are spendthrift. When they have money, they spend it. Good quality. Where oil stocks are volatile, this will be doubly volatile.

2006-06-19 BUY Power Financial Corp
PWF-T
Laura Wallace An excellent company. Prefers owning the purer plays. If you are prepared to put it away, it has always rewarded investors in the long-term. 3% dividend yield is excellent. Have a good record of increasing dividends.

2006-06-19 DON'T BUY Telus Corp
T-T
Brian Acker, CA Thinks this stock will stay flat or will go down. Model price is $37 which is a negative 17% differential. An interest sensitive stock. In any increasing interest rate environment, all the telcos as well as all dividend paying stocks are in big trouble.
