Q: A few weeks ago I asked about the virtues of owning XLE vs XEG. I ended up buying 5 postions in the following: TOU, KEL, WCP, ARX, TVE. Energy is now 3.5% of my overall portfolio.

My question is the following: for US exposure: may you please provide me your highest conviction name. If you had to chose between this US energy name an DIS for a total return in the next twelve months, which of the two would you side with?

Also, for the next twelve months, what portfolio allocation to energy would you deem optimal, given the current macro environnement?

Thank you and please deduct credits as you see fit.

Q: The listed oil and gas companies comprise a 4% weight in my portfolios. I have been dying in oil and gas for about a decade. However, not counting the capital losses I have taken over the years, the current portfolio of legacy and new acquistions is miraculously above water. I have promised myself to never again be so exposed to the world's most manipulated commodity. If I'm going to folow though on this self-promise I need to think about liquidating some of these positions. Question: in what order would you take down these positions?
Best wishes for 2022. David

Q: Please take as many question credits
you need to fully answer this. I would like growth and reasonably safe stocks. I have losses in all of these; should I sell and take the loss? Hold as they are likely to recover in next 6--12 months? Thanks. Helen

Q: I think this question may be more about financial statement understanding, or oil & gas reporting specialization, than investment, so it may be beyond the scope of what you can advise?
Kelt's most recent quarterly report includes a $260 million impairment charge on their assets ("CGU") -- that magnitude is huge and is the lions share of their (huge) quarterly costs and loss.
Are you able to provide any explanation or further information about this transaction?

Unrelated, I see today's large insider purchase -- looks like a substantial vote of confidence?

(I have a tiny piece of KEL in my TFSA)
