Q: Hi team:

about 2 years ago, when CVE was around $ 15, it was a top pick by a BNN
market call speaker who I think is a conservative investor in general; he thinks that it has good value and pays a dividend to wait

the company HSE that was bought by CVE now was trading around $ 25 plus over ten years ago too and paid a dividend for the investors

The less than ideal outcome of the CVE stock ( has suspended dividend if I am correct) does reflect the general outlook for the Canadian energy stocks;

but after the last Fed election, one of the natural gas company just moved the head
office to the USA, the dividend paid out from what I understand no longer qualified for the dividend tax advantage

I wonder if CVE might be the next Canadian energy company to re-locate South of the border ? I also share the deep pain of the workers for the CVE who got laid off after the merger that no longer have a job

I wonder if it is a Value trap stock ?
