Q: Good morning

I am confused...I understand the risk of inflation, war, Covid etc...The demand may be restricted for oil (short-term) but it does not seem to makes sense the volatility in energy when many will be making tremendous cash when oils above $80...TVE, Arc, Whitecap stocks were higher when oil was rising in the $80 this just speculators jumping in and out...would it not be a good time in buy these stocks today as it seems to be quite emotional right now with the rest of the market...any other that you would recommend are being sold without thought of fundamentals?

Q: Hi,
BIR, WCP, PEY, CVE, GXE, & ERF have significant gains in my portfolio.
SGY, and HWO on the other hand have laggard in this sector.
I would like your guidance if I should sell any of these at this time or hold. If hold for now, what should I watch out for?

Q: Years ago I bought CJ at $4.20 and recently sold it when it reached that price again. Obviously, a mistake as it is now $7.72. I own WCP and VET which are now back to my original purchase price.
What do I do ? The oil and gas sector is cyclical and I wish to exit this sector as am retired and rely on a safer higher dividend portfolio but do not want to repeat selling these too early. Do I follow analysis target price and /or other metrics, or do I just bail out , happy to get my money back? Thanks .

Q: Hi Team: I currently have 21% of my portfolio in Canadian oil stocks (Cenovus 10%, Suncor 8% and Westcap Res. 1%). Iím concerned that this may be too overweighted in oils for current market and economic conditions. If it is in your opinion, what would you trim and by how much? If it matters in your consideration, 24% is in fixed income.

Q: Hello Peter and team,
The market is up today and the tech stocks are up considerably after the recent fed rate increase. Is it because the increase was small (i.e Tech stocks sold off on previous announcements of rate increases)? Any idea why Tecsys and ATS automation are not participating? Do you see Arc Resources and Whitecap doing better in the next few months.. On BNN, Eric Nuttal, felt oil will continue to do well price wise. Do you share that view?

Q: Hi 5i
Three questions if that's OK, points to be deducted accordingly:

1. What's the best site to find dates on which quarterly reports will be released along with estimates for the upcoming quarter?

2. Could you identify 2 or 3 small to mid cap O&G producers that you would recommend now (not including TVE or WCP) along with a thumbnail sketch as to why for each?

3. What are your thoughts about FRU for income and cap gain over the 12 months or so?

Q: Hello Peter and team,
Any idea why Arc Resources and Whitecap are not participating to the same degree as other oil stocks like Tamarack Valley? On BNN, it was mentioned that if Arc is not re-rated, it could be a take out candidate. If so, what price would you think makes sense as takeover candidate? Much appreciated.

Q: I'm looking to review and possibly consolidate my oil exposure.
Currently I've got WCP, CVE, FRU, and PHX.

How would you rate these for a long term hold for income and growth? Are there any others that would be better?

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.

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!
