  1. Hey DE,

    Damn this list is PERFECT for me! I have an interest in a lot of these companies and these are what I’m playing with for the upcoming month as well….

    I have a particular interest in CWB, BNS and CNQ…

    What do you think about CWB vs BNS? Would love your input.

    Best regards,
