Q: Is it time to buy energy stocks? If so, what 2-3 holdings do you suggest? In the past I've successfully owned TVE, WCP and SGY. for growth. I currently own CNQ and have held it for years as an income stock. Thanks.

Q: Hi,

What are your top 3 to 5 picks in Canadian heavy oil?
Eric Nuttall picked CVE/ATH/CPG. in his recent appearance on BNN. He predicts it is bit too early for the Gas plays.

You can add separately the companies in the States as well. Eric's focus is only in Canada. I guess that is his mandate.

Thank you.

You may want to add the stock symbols as the stem in this this question depending on your answer!

Q: Hi Peter,

I am a bit underweight in the energy sector of my portfolio. I wish to increase my weighting in this sector by five percent. Which of the companies listed below would you consider holding over a five to ten period? Please provide the order of selection. Or would you recommend buying an ETF for this sector as a better choice from a risk-return perspective? If so, what would be your ETF best pick(s) be?

Q: These past years, watching energy / utilities has been strategically interesting these, noting that it was a short time ago that renewable utility stocks were shooting for the moon, and energy was so low that oil was selling at a negative to fulfill pipeline contracted deliveries. At its low I recall a reader asking “should I back up the truck” on Suncor. In short your response was no. Nobody likes oil, just look at the price.
Then it all switched. A number of unforeseeable crises such as Ukraine shifted everything.
What is the long term forecast for each? I note that the world is finally ramping scale for electric vehicles, and batteries, a lot faster than building power plants. My hypothesis is thus related. A demand surge for e-cars in years ahead will gradually spike power demand with no concurrent supply leading to average power rates jumping and done winners in utilities. If anything, natural disaster supply shortages in California, Texas and others have highlighted grid vulnerabilities reducing supply and creating spikes for winners.
On the fossil fuel side, I would therefore guess that demand will persist as North America does not support infrastructure to reduce or even maintain electricity costs at present levels.
Any thoughts welcome- this is no longer a new subject but should be among our most important as investors…I’m also looking out at the smoke everywhere and thinking this discussion isn’t going away.

Q: As a TRP dividend investor of 77 years old are the problems with the XL pipeline already baked? As I am a value investor for the most part would you suggest a switch to PPL or other suggestion? I have a 5 - 8 year time frame. I also hold ENB, SU, XOM and CVX as well as NXF as the energy part of my portfolio.

Q: Hello, we have a full position in CNQ (5%) and SU & TOU (3% combined). We also own ENB (6%). We are considering to reduce our weighting in Energy sector. We like CNQ and ENB, for their respective merits, at the two ends of the spectrum being Growth and Income and relatively stable history of stock performance. If you have to choose to sell/trim between SU and TOU, what would be your approach - Equally trim from Both or Sell one of them in full ? Based on current and likely scenario of Oil and Natural Gas prices and their balance sheet and growth/income prospects.

Thank You

Q: Good morning team,
My only exposure to the energy sector is Tourmaline and I am thinking of adding either Suncor or Canadian Natural Resources.
