Q: What are your thoughts on BAYTEX ENERGY (BTE) at current prices and going forward? Year end results were released Feb 24, 2021, and it appears as though there were no production surprises, and they have partially hedged their 2021 production with price protection at $45 with upside to 52/bbl. Do you have a price target at current prices? What if we see sustained oil prices at $60-65 or even further bullish (some calling for $80+). Are their names 5i prefers in its place, or are you satisfied with a HOLD on this going forward?

Q: Could I get suggestions for long term dividend paying stocks for a young investor to add to these stocks.

Read Answer Asked by Roy on December 03, 2020

Q: I am looking to potentially harvest some tax loss for future use and have the following questions:
BTE - if I sold BTE, what is a good proxy to park the money in with similar torque to improving sector fundamentals?
PTE - is there any hope for this or is it finally time for me to accept that it was a bad investment
Nobilis - I noticed it reappeared on the OTC as NRTSF but looks like the price and volumes are close to zero (or am I missing something?)....time to donate to my broker in exchange for a capital loss?

Thanks as always!!!

Q: I am a "buy and hold" long term investor. I have held these stocks for over five years on the assumption that at least one of the pipelines would be built and the stocks would regain at least some of their losses. Of course that hasn't happened. With the Covid-19 situation I am concerned about a serious downturn in the economy during the next 18 months. As these stocks are already extrememly low, I am wondering if they will survive, let alone improve, during the next year or so. Based on income, debt levels, and future prospects, please rank each company according the possibility of failure.

Looking to clean up my oil and gas names but don't mind keeping some or adding others to maintain some exposure.

How would you rank TOG/TOU/BTE/WCP in terms of bounce back potential/likelihood of survival/balance sheet strength? What is you top two?

Q: In a recent answer to a question on an oil company, you mentioned that it is hard to be optimistic on a company if you don't like the management team. So my question is, which of the management teams in the oil sector would you want to align yourself with, and why? Alternatively, which of the management teams would you not align yourself with? Please deduct as many credits as necessary to fully answer my question. Thank You.

Q: Hello,
Reading back through your comments on Baytex, it appears you are not large fans.. However, in the last question, you mention it has strong free cash flow yield.. I understand that you don't trust the management team, but in this environment where all management teams are in survival mode and paying down debt or buying back shares, don't you want to align with the best free cash flow companies?
