Q1. What are your thoughts on FRU.CA

Q2. Which of these three stocks (MEG.CA, CVE.CA or TVE.CA offers the best risk/reward at this particular time,

Q3. Is there another energy stock that you prefer and would wholeheartedly recommend.

Thank you and I'll await your response.

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,

Further to Kenís question on February 13, can you explain why you prefer PSK over FRU?

For some reason most, but not all, analyst pick PSK over FRU. When I look at the following measures, FRU seems like the better choice.

Rev Growth 3 Years 37.83 26.23
Rev Growth 5 Years 8.98 8.62
ROE 11.79 22.44
ROA 9.12 18.17
ROC 10.94 18.69
PE 17.20 11.90
PCF 9.70 7.90
PBV 1.98 2.49
Yield 4.18% 6.80%

Thanks for your opinion.

Q: I heard that Eric Nuttall is now out of VET. It's my only oil & gas stock that is under water at this point. What is your opinion? It seems to have declined due to the fall of natural gas in Europe and the extra tax levy. Do you think it has fallen enough to now be worth holding, or is there another oil and gas stock that you like better. I'm thinking maybe FRU or even NNRG.NE, Eric's fond? Or do you have another one?

Q: Hi 5i,
I wonder if you could give us some guidance. My wife holds the above in her RSP, with all being more or less a full position except for ENB at 2X, BCE, CM, and SU at 1.5X each and CHR and DXT at .5X each.
She has until the end of 2024 to convert to a RRIF and currently has $40K to contribute to her RSP and has the room for that contribution.
She would like to invest in some different names, or divest/reinvest in those she has, with an eye to maximizing value before the conversion to a RRIF and to continue thereafter. She's not asking for much - just safety, capital appreciation and income ...!
Based on this info, can you offer any thoughts on new names to add or which of the existing to either pull back on, or dump entirely if that extreme measure seems warranted?
Thank you 5i, and we wish you all an excellent holiday season.

Q: Good Morning
I woud appreciate it if you could provide me with Credit Ratings for the following companies as I have been unable to find the information. Maybe your Bloomberg will help me.
Do you consider the credit Rating to be a very important metric by which one can judge the safety of a company and of it's dividend?
Thank you............ Paul W. K.

Q: 5i, What is the real truth on oil supplies?? I follow Eric Nuttall fairly close and he has claimed for the past year that oil reserves are way under what they need to be. He forecasts oil to be up for at least the next 6 years. His philosiphy is that Co. are commited to share buy backs and div. increases as opposed to future
capital expenditures. He goes so far as to say it really doesnt matter what the Saudis do long run.
On the other hand BNN reports this morning the Saudis will increase supply and oil market drops like a rock. Saudis deny report and oil back to 80 dollars. Two extreme views. What do you see as being correct.?? I feel oil and gas will be around a long time. At least until a replacement has been found. Thanks for opinion Ken

Q: Could you please comment on FRU's Third Quarter results and your expectations for the stock over the next 12 months considering these results, the company's guidance, production growth and your assessment of oil and gas prices over this period. I currently own shares in the company. Would you continue to hold the shares or perhaps, add to the position?

Which three of the above fourteen oil & gas stocks would you sell first to bring my sector allocation back to my normal weight? This is assuming 100 WTI oil in 2023. Could you also provide a brief reason for each of the three stocks that you would get rid of first. Thanks.

Q: I am contemplating buying PSK for nat gas exposure but I don't know the actual % of total royalties that are derived from nat gas. Do you have that data for both PSK and FRU? I would sell FRU to make the buy in spite of the fact that FRU has outperformed PSK slightly over the past year and div if much higher. I am attempting to partake in the success of the LNG facility on the west coast. Is this move wise and will it accomplish my intent?
