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: Hello Peter and team,
Do you see BCE and Telus as over value territory as it seems investors are moving to safety driving up share prices.. I was thinking of selling some and buy back later time (i know it may seem market timing, but they have run up alot). If I did sell, what are the alternatives? Thanks for the explanation on BAM; the market call commentary was harsh. Lastly, would you consider Enerplus a good buy and is PE a good way to look at oil companies or is it mostly on cash flow? Thanks very much

Q: I hold ERF, NVA, ARX, TVE, GXE, and VET in the "play money" part of my portfolio and I'm certainly benefiting from and enjoying the large increases but I know all good things must end and sometimes quite abruptly.

Are there a couple of key indicators I should be particularly watching for that it's time to get out of all of these quickly before I give up all my easy gains?

Thank you,

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

POW: 6.72% of total, 67.89% gain
PPL: 6.38% of total, 53.52% gain

Q: Greetings - Considering the impressive returns from the energy sector last year, the leadership of the sector so far this year, the current supply demand scenario for oil , the likelihood of greater US production, geopolitical realities, and what we might see in the next 3 to 6 months (insofar as there is any clarity that far out) 1. Is energy a 5 or 6 year investment or more likely a shorter term trade. 2. Does it seem to you that the oil price is more likely to continue to climb throughout the next 6 months rather than to recede. 3.Which 3 of these 8 listed securities offers the best upside and which 3 the least risk and thirdly if you had to pick just one to buy a full position of today which one of the eight would you personally click the buy button on and would you be comfortable doing so at the current price.
Thank you for the input - Ken

Q: Hi Peter/Ryan, PetroGirl and Eric Nuttlall are always arguing as to who was right and wrong about theses stocks and targets for them and the price of oil.

Thanks for your much valued view. Nick

Q: Good Morning 5i,
With all the cash being generated by the energy companies I am wondering if you think the higher carbon producers would be looking to go private to allow them the time needed away from the public markets to transition to a lower carbon footprint. Would appreciate your thoughts in this regard, which companies do you think would consider going this route, would a company require shareholder approval and if so,
would there be a significant premium paid to shareholders to get the approval ? Thanks
