Q: Can I please get your outlook on the energy sector, and the holdings above- how would you rank them for a 1 year hold, would the ranking change for a 5 year hold?
There is the view that energy will come back to represent a larger % of the index again.

Q: On May 9th, there was a question from James about when MEG Energy might start a dividend. In their recent Q1 earnings report, they stated that once a debt level of $600 million was reached, which they expect by the 2nd half of 2023, 100% of free cash flow will be returned to shareholders. I would expect this means some combination of share buybacks and dividends.

In Q1, the company had approx $500 million of free cash flow, which is about $2.0 billion for a year at that rate. There are 307 million shares o/s currently, so that would equate to roughly $6.50 a share. If half went to share buybacks, then that would leave roughly $3.25 for a dividend, which would be about a 17% yield on the current share price. Of course, energy pricing could change significantly (up or down) between now and then.

ENB: 17.72% of total, 44.35% gain
SU: 14.35% of total, 73.34% gain
MEG: 14% of total, 309.59% gain
WCP: 11.55% of total, 249.88% gain
ERF: 8.82% of total, 421.21% gain
CNQ: 8.67% of total, 248.39% gain
CPG: 7.33% of total, 346.70% gain
POW: 6.72% of total, 67.89% gain
PPL: 6.38% of total, 53.52% gain
AQN: 4.47% of total, 4.83% gain


Thanks in advance for the insight and advice!

Q: Greetings - Considering the impressive returns from the energy sector last year, the leadership of the sector so far this year, the current supply demand scenario for oil , the likelihood of greater US production, geopolitical realities, and what we might see in the next 3 to 6 months (insofar as there is any clarity that far out) 1. Is energy a 5 or 6 year investment or more likely a shorter term trade. 2. Does it seem to you that the oil price is more likely to continue to climb throughout the next 6 months rather than to recede. 3.Which 3 of these 8 listed securities offers the best upside and which 3 the least risk and thirdly if you had to pick just one to buy a full position of today which one of the eight would you personally click the buy button on and would you be comfortable doing so at the current price.
Thank you for the input - Ken

Q: It's time that I trim my above portfolio of 13 oil & gas stocks to sector weighting. Which 6 stocks do you think should be first to be trimmed? Please list the stocks in order from the first to be sold to the sixth. This is for medium risk profile. Also could you list a short reason why you think it should go for each of the six stocks.

Thanks

Q: Despite the significant increase in Energy stocks, I am looking to add some exposure. Do you see more upside in 2022 and beyond? Please rank the companies above for a 2-5 year hold.

Q: The listed oil and gas companies comprise a 4% weight in my portfolios. I have been dying in oil and gas for about a decade. However, not counting the capital losses I have taken over the years, the current portfolio of legacy and new acquistions is miraculously above water. I have promised myself to never again be so exposed to the world's most manipulated commodity. If I'm going to folow though on this self-promise I need to think about liquidating some of these positions. Question: in what order would you take down these positions?
Best wishes for 2022. David
