Q: Top 3 favourite O&G to hold irrespective of portfolio mix. Canadian or US or international. Large, mid, or small cap. Doesnít matter upstream, midstream, downstream. Just what 5i likes now and briefly why. Maybe an honourable mention if you have one.

Q: Hello 5i team:

At this particular time, which ETF do you think worth buying? US based XLE or Canadian based XEG? Is there a ETF based on Europe or the rest of the world?

Will you underweight or overweight energy in one's portfolio? I know in the US energy doesn't play a big role. But in Canadian index, they do.

Thanks in advance.

Q: Hi, I am trying to have some exposure to Energy Group, with low risk dividends paying companies. You added Suncor with good timing and Balanced Portfolio benefitted from the 20% jump with company announcing 100% Dividend raise and large share buyback plan. Based on your comments and its profile, I have started an initial 1% position at about $32. My question is, is it late to bump the position to 2%, with recent price jump ? Do you expect share price to correct a bit in near term and if so, what would be a decent level to add ? Also, what are the catalysts, in the short term, to take the stock to next level.

Do you also place CNQ in the same category ?

Thank You

Q: Can you suggest some Canadian companies, other than in technology, utilities or finance, that you currently consider to be undervalued and worthy of consideration for a long term investor. I've done very well with your suggestions of MG, WELL, ATA, TFII, EIF, PBH, GSY. I don't mind adding to any of the latter but would like to know if you see value ( or at least promising growth from today's prices) Thanks and best wishes always - Al

Q: Thank you for your prompt and your customary excellent answer to my earlier question!

Q: 1. May I then request you to give me a concentrated collection of small/midcaps energy stocks that you think will be comparable to an ETF? say ZJO?

Q 2: Big and mid to big caps that are comparable to XEG?

I will leave the number of stock selection to your discretion.

Many thanks.

Q: Iím thinking of expanding my energy holdings. I bought Whitecap a few months ago and have enjoyed a nice bump in value along with a solid dividend. Iím considering TVE, SU and/or ENB for a combo of dividend and SP appreciation. Could you please discuss the relative merits of each in a 1-2 year timeline. Iíd definitely hold longer if the case can be made that green energy investment and ESG movements donít derail fossil fuel companies from meeting existing market demand.

Q: It seems like a lot of analysts are talking about a resource bull market especially regarding the inflation/stagflation discourse.
Do you feel we are heading into a resource bull market?
And, are there certain sectors you favour - Oil/gas, copper, uranium, food, precious metals?
Finally, are there any stocks within this very broad resource sector that you think is a standout. Please take as many credits as necessary
Much appreciated

Q: Good Morning,
Two ?s here: I put in a buy on SU before markets opened with a limit 21 cents above yesterdays close. It didn't fill, and now the stock is up about $2.50.
How would you approach putting an order in prior to market opening on this sort of event?
And do you think there is more room to run on the share price based on the quarter, dividend increase and share by back news?

Q: Could you please comment on Suncor's Q3 results and increased dividend. Do you see SU as a long term hold? I have a significant SU position in 2 margin accounts and can't decided at what speed I should be moving these investment dollars to green energy stocks that I would hold forever. Thanks for valuable information!
