Q: I sold out of all my PXT around $30 since it had a nice run but more impotantly the in coming president in Columbia is very anti-oil even though his name is Petro (kind of ironic). I have not been able to find any recent news as to whether the new president is going to follow through an policies that are not extraction industry friendly (Even though they are one of the few bright spots in the world economy in 2022). Is there anything on your radar about PXT and the Columbia geopolitical situation? I like PXT because of its net cash on the balance sheet and that is profitable even with WTI in the mid 40"s but government intervention by Latin American governments can destroy a lot of share holder value. What's your take on PXT?

Q: Hello 5i,

My overall portfolio weighting in energy has grown to 20.49% and I am looking to trim and/or get out of a position in the next few weeks/months.

I currently hold SU 9.62%, TOU 4.74%, PXT 1.11%, KEY 1.07%, ENB 3.95%.

Leaning towards selling my entire position on PXT and some of SU but would appreciate your opinion. I still have a high conviction in the energy sector but I am uncomfortable with my overall weighting in it. Would greatly appreciate your thoughts and how you would rank each stock to each other.

I am also underweight in industrial/healthcare/utilities and looking to purchase a stock in those sectors with whatever i sell in energy. Would appreciate a recommendation in each of those sectors.

Please deduct credits for above as you see fit and thank you again for all that you do.

Q: I have very little energy exposure in my registered account.
Is now a good time to add a long-term dividend payer and if so, please suggest 2 for me to consider.
Preferably one that isn't already over-valued and therefore may drop in price should oil return to $50 or $60/ barrel.

Q: Hello, recently Eric Nuttal called PXT a value trap and a chronic underperformer, and he previously owned the company. He also stated that mgmt is giving mixed messaging and needs to increase the div, do a special div, and increase buybacks. On paper I thought PXT was doing everything right. The amount of shares they have bought back and just confirmed again for 2022 is amazing. Yet year after year it doesn't get the valuation increase it deserves. As Eric says "the market does not care about PXT and there are no big buyers", despite of it having the best balance sheet and buybacks in Canadian o&g. Yes its up last year, but considerably lower than its peers, so there is the opportunity cost. My question is, do we often see companies buying back shares, great balance sheet, and doing most things right yet they never receive the valuation they should or is it a case of you need to be patient, maybe even for years to see the market eventually reward it.
