Q: With the prices of some oil stocks down significantly in the past 6 months, do you think that some of the larger companies (SU, CNQ, etc) would want to take over some of the smaller players at a nice discount? A bit speculative, but can you identify some of the smaller takeover candidates?

Q: I own these energy stocks and some are on the plus side and others are on the losing side. I've been waiting for quite some time for the Chinese economy to take off, but it seems to go nowhere ? I would like to trim some of my holdings. Please place them in order of what you would keep down to some you would let go. Maybe you could code them as 10 being the best and 1 as being the worst. Thanks.

Q: Reading recent comments on Birchcliff Energy 5i didnít think a dividend cut was imminent and you felt they would issue debt to fund the dividend if need be. Just curious as to the rationale for this opinion. Also, do you feel Bir is good buy at these reduced levels? Finally, In light of todayís dividend cut and significant drop is this company now a prime candidate for a takeover and if so then why?

Q: It has been a long while since I have owned Birchcliff Energy (BIR) and I was shocked to see it trading for less tham $6. The dividend yield is nearly 14 per cent. I understand that at 2.50 natural gas pricing that BIR has to use leverage to maintain the 20 cent per quarter dividend. I remember about a year ago BIR was debt free so I don't image their debt is that high. I also remember Jeff Tonkin saying that the dividend was almost sacrosanct. So I few questions. Is Tonkin still the COE or has he retired or stepped up to be on the BOD? Is the debt level of BIR still low? At 2.50 gas (I know BIR never used to hedge so I assume they are gettting spot pricing) how much debt per quarter must BIR use in order to maintain the current dividend and spend enough to keep production flat? Do you think they will resize, that is, cut the dividend? And if they cut do you thin they would do an NCIB and start to buy back the shares from their depressed levels?
