Thank you for recommending this post to our Best of feature.
Greetings, our wise and benevolent leader!

My choices for 2013... I am not nearly as confident as last year, but since I am in just about last place, maybe that is a good thing?

Safe Bet: I will go with copper, in the form of FCX (Freeport-McMoRan Copper and Gold).

Long Shot: ERF, an oil and gas company in the US and Canada that has been beaten down heavily this past year. I am hoping their recent moves have them poised to return to profitability, with a bounce in share price as a result.


Awesome picks and nice to see proper deference to our great leader. }};-D

I like copper if y'all don't put us back in the toilet with the silly ego trip on the hill?

ERF is long suffering from the low Nat gas price and the low price they get for their Western Canadian Select that can't get to the world market. I would suggest that the shortage of pipes to tidewater will not be solved in the next 12 months but perhaps there will be a light at the end of the tunnel.

In truth your ERF pick (I own that one as well) and my much larger position in Penn West share the same difficulties and hopefully the same solution to the problems.

Good luck.
