Re SP, I see what you guys are saying, but I think the market knows whats going on with TRQ and is pricing in the political risk pretty well.  I also don't think the stock needs to be promoted; first thing, all the Canadian investment houses such as BMO keep a very close watch on it, and other very high profile investors, such as George Soros, currently have stakes.  If the situation stabilizes over the next few months, the SP will rise to 9 or so; once production begins and money starts to flow, as long as the situation remains stable the SP will slowly rise to match the cash flow. However,  I wouldn't look for a big move -- say to $14 or so, for a while -- the reverberations from this episode will take a while to subside, and the uncertain outcome of the GOM elections will keep political risk baked into the price for several months.
