Healthcare Plays

On the healthcare side, some of the names we’re buying right now, we’re seeing value in Perriggo, which is a generic over-the-counter drug maker, like Baxter, like Medtronic, like Wyeth and a lot of the biotechs, names like Cephalon are looking very good to us right now.

Betting on Energy

I like the refiners…I think they’ve just been sold off completely.

There’s Tesoro -- eight refineries, it’s got a $2 billion market cap, you can’t build them in the United States…I think you can make some good money in refiners here.

- Gregory Church, Church Capital Management

Long-Term Plays

Canadian Oil Sands has been a tremendous performer, really driven by the oil-price performance the last several years. Others, like Pfizer, have been a little bit tougher, a little bit more of a long-term value play, with the creation of new drugs there over time."
