Q: Hello Peter,
Do you still see both Topicus and Lumine Group as long term holds or should i just buy CSU and add more to my existing shares? If oil companies decide to privatize, how would the investor share price be reflected? Does the company buy out our portion of shares and at what price (current price of market).. Lastly, any comments on baytex would be appreciated. Thanks

Q: Is it time to buy energy stocks? If so, what 2-3 holdings do you suggest? In the past I've successfully owned TVE, WCP and SGY. for growth. I currently own CNQ and have held it for years as an income stock. Thanks.

Q: The above are my overweighted energy holdings. Can you please prioritize them as I have to reduce my weighting. Is there any I should exit. Again Thanks in advance.

Q: How would you rank these companies in terms of overall growth going forward in the energy sector. I'm currently holding TOU, WCP, TVE and KEL.

Largest position is in TOU at around 3% (+44%) and smaller positions in WCP (+69%), TVE (-9%) and KEL (-14%) . I could add to any of these names. How does TOU compare vs AR in terms of natural gas companies? AR has pulled back in the last year and today it was up close to 9% which I couldn't find any news. I'm thinking of selling some TOU or just starting a new position in AR. I also like that AR is buying back shares, have strong insider ownership, founder operated, strong margins and balance sheet. All metrics seem pretty strong with AR, any red flags that you see? Thoughts?

Q: Good morning,

I currently hold FRU in my TFSA account and it is down approx 30%.

Q1. What is your outlook at this time of FRU and would this be a good entry point to purchase some additional shares?

I wish to purchase an energy stock for my TFSA and GXE is one under consideration given the relative safety of its high dividend and growth prospect should the price of oil go higher.

Q2. What are your thoughts and outlook of GXE at this time and do you have a better recommendation for a new position in my TFSA?

Thank you and I'll await your sage advice.

Q: Hi 5i,
I have a meaningful stake in WCP and am nicely in the green. I also have what I worry may be an irrational faith in its future prospects and its management, regardless of predictions that the energy sector will begin (or should I say continue?) to underperform in the not-too-distant future.
So, I'm looking for a reality check.
I have recently read elsewhere that WCP's debt, both short and long term, while presently manageable, is of a magnitude to potentially cause WCP significant problems that may well negatively impact both its share price and dividend if its revenues decrease by the amounts some are predicting over the next year and beyond.
Although I understand that there is 'good' debt and 'bad' debt and can both tell the difference in my personal life, and recognize how it is affecting me, analyzing the debt of a specific company in relation to its current and anticipated future revenues, CAPEX, FCF, EPS, P/E, etc. etc. is beyond me.
I would greatly appreciate your thoughts on the future prospects of WCP in this context.

Q: I'm thinking to sell FRU for a tax loss and add to WCP. Eric Nuttal mentioned WCP is increasing their dividend? Where would one find this info?
I'm seeing conflicting info on dividend yields, on this platform as well, where is the most up to date place to search for yield info?

Do you have any other picks than WCP to consider for an income investor for a long term bullish oil play?

Q: How would you rank these companies for growth, stability
and dividend security? I'm thinking to trim WCP and FRU
to add these others.

Q: Good morning 5i team!

May I please get your thoughts on ERF. I've held it for a while and have done well. I'm concidering rotating out of this name and shifting to either WCP, HWX or TVE all of which have better dividends and could run harder if oil catches a bid (as many oil bulls are expecting). Do you prefer any of these name over the others....or, stay the course. Thoughts?

Q: Hello Folks:
The oil and gas sector has provided good upside compared to tech and other segments.
Consequently we now have oversize exposure to this sector 20-25% weighting.
In your opinion have we seen most of the upside from this sector and perhaps should move some money elsewhere; particularly CVX, WCP, ARX and Hess? What is your opinion and also of which sectors have most upside?
Thanks for your great service!!!!
