Q: Hello, I have a small position in MEG and would like to add on the possibility of the company being taken over. As I understand it , they have a large Net Operating Loss (NOL) that a major could use to offset their tax. ..
What is your assessment of their financials? From what I see their EPS growth has been -ve for years. Then the question is why would someone buy this company? is it mis-managed?

Q: Good afternoon,

The Globe and Mail reported that the Trans Mountain pipeline is scheduled to start in Feb 25.

Although the news of the opening is already baked into the market, are there any undervalued energy stocks that you could recommend as a good addition to the energy sector of a well diversified portfolio that may well benefit from the opening of the Trans Mountain pipeline in the next few years?

Tank you and I'll await your recommendations.

Q: I am thinking of selling my Vermilion shares VET and using the funds to buy shares of MEG since I want to keep my oil and gas exposure at the same weight (about 15 per cent of the portfolio.) This swap of oil producers is predicated on that MEG is already returning 50 per cent of FCF to shareholders while VET is only returning 30 per cent. According to both compannies corporate presentations both companies play to allocate more FCF to shareholders when lower debit levels are achieved in 2024. I liked VET from its exposure to high gas prices in Europe but when Ireland introduced a windfall tax on VET it definitely took a shine off of Vet's future. What do you think of changing VET for MEG. I also have some CPG, CJ, TOU, WCP, and BTE so I don't want to add to them.

Q: I have shares is a few energy companies. TVE is my largest holding and is the poorest performing. I am thinking of selling TVE and buying MEG in place. What difference do you see in the 2? Is there more risk with one or the other? And of course what is of interest, is there more upside with one or the other?

Another option would be to add to some existing holdings: CVE; ATH; AOI.

What would you see as the best course... continue to hold TVE, switch to MEG, or add to the others?

Thanks for your excellent service.

Q2. Which of these three stocks (MEG.CA, CVE.CA or TVE.CA offers the best risk/reward at this particular time,

Q3. Is there another energy stock that you prefer and would wholeheartedly recommend.

Thank you and I'll await your response.

Q: My only energy holding is ENB, and I'm thinking of replacing it with something with greater growth prospects. Dividends are not too important. Are there any of the stocks listed you would suggest at this time? (Or any others??)
