Q: I have been slowly existing this sector ( including pipelines ) as it is fraught with so many political, environmental, supply/ demand issues. The recent rise in o&g prices I see as temporary; the world has changed and the market has assigned a lower valuation to stocks in this industry. These are my remaining holdings ( bought at much higher prices) which comprise approximately 2 % of total portfolios. Believe I should sell them and get them off my portfolio sheet ( and out of my head ! ). Selling is much harder than buying. Your thoughts would be appreciated. Derek

Q: I own the following and thought: WCP ( good assets good balance sheet),
CJ ( slow decline rates), VET ( Brent prices) And they were all paying great dividends ! What could go wrong eh?
The model of great dividends in this sector is broken and not to return.
These stocks represent a small part of my portfolio.
Believing that the market will do its work eventually , I am looking at selling these and replacing with PXT which is one of your favourites in this sector. Would you expect it to bounce back to the same degree as the others or more / less?
Emotionally it is very difficult to sell your losers, always hoping they will come back, but have found once I sell them, they are not daily reminders of the money I have lost.
PXT has a strong balance sheet, good assets and management. Is their oil sold and refined within the region? Would you buy in RRSP,TFSA or CASH account.? Thanks. Derek

Q: I own cardinal energy a very small cap energy name. I am concerned about their debt load and possibility of not making it through the current downturn in the space. They have convertible debentures due in Dec of this year of 45 mil. Bank loan of 175 mil due Dec of 21 there is cash on the balance sheet and nearly a billion in assets. Do you feel they can get to the other side? I am bothered by the fact that management has not purchased many shares in the downturn compared to insider purchases of their peers such as wcp-t, kelt or nuvista.

Q: Hi,
thanks to 5i, my portfolio is fairly well diversified and overall doing quite well. The equities listed in this question are the ones I'm down on the most, some are near 25-50% losses. What general guidelines help determine whether to sell these 'losers' and move the remaining funds to other stocks or whether to continue to hold? Can you list each of these with a buy/sell/hold on a longer term (20 yr) view, these are all 1-5% each of the total portfolio. Deduct as many credits as needed since there are really two questions here.
