Investment Q&A

Not investment advice or solicitation to buy/sell securities. Do your own due diligence and/or consult an advisor.

Q: Years ago I bought CJ at $4.20 and recently sold it when it reached that price again. Obviously, a mistake as it is now $7.72. I own WCP and VET which are now back to my original purchase price.
What do I do ? The oil and gas sector is cyclical and I wish to exit this sector as am retired and rely on a safer higher dividend portfolio but do not want to repeat selling these too early. Do I follow analysis target price and /or other metrics, or do I just bail out , happy to get my money back? Thanks .

Q: I'm looking for some Canadian companies that can benefit from the current oil shortage in the world. My research has turned up CJ, ERF, MEG, and NVA. Would you please rank them best to worst in terms of potental upside. As you can see, I'm looking for good growth going forward. If you can think of other possiblilties I would appreciate your choices. Also, do you see any major flaws with the companies I've indicated I would appreciate your opinions.

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: 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

Q: Which of these stocks/etfs would you predict to have the best near term upside?

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
