Michael Decter “The” oil sands play in Saskatchewan. Have one million acres of land. People running it are very smart with good experience. Saskatchewan has far less competition for oil sands development then Alberta, which is kind of crowded. Patience will be required on this one and be prepared for a 3 to 5 year time frame.

Sandy McIntyre “Sell in May and go away”? 3 worst months for the market are September, February and May so don't sell in May, sell before May. Sectors he would sell would be high beta sectors, the ones that have no dividends and that have moved hard. You want to lock in a profit.

Benj Gallander “Risk on” and “Risk off”: It’s a new term from 2010. Risk on means you are willing to take more risk – it is a good time to take more risk. Risk off means it is time to be scared and people flee to American treasuries. Diversification covers this anyway.

Paul Gardner, CFA “Principal Protection Notes” structure has always been a problem. Transparency is so poor that you never seem to win on them. You can construct your own without paying management fees by buying a 10-year residual bond at a discount. E.g. $.80 on the $1 and with the $.20 you buy the underlying security. If your investment goes to zero, your $.80 goes to 100, which is like a principal protection.

2009-12-23 DON'T BUY Manitoba Telecom Services
MBT-T
John Zechner “Manitoba Telecom (MBT-T) or Crescent Point (CPG-T) for dividend and safety?” From a pure safety point of view, you are always better off with a telecom than an oil company however there is a chance Manitoba Tel may have to cut their dividend depending of what they do on the wireless side. Not generating very much earnings growth. To be really safe he would select Telus (T-T) or BCE (BCE-T).

Michael Sprung [Was past pick] Sometimes a pick goes down and you have to reassess. It’s now a better buy that it was. There are some things that delayed their earnings potential. There have been weak wheat prices. Earnings will be less this year than he had anticipated they would be, but they will be a dominant player in Canada in the agriculture business, especially in grain handling. Stock has more than pulled back.
