Q: Can I please get your outlook on the energy sector, and the holdings above- how would you rank them for a 1 year hold, would the ranking change for a 5 year hold?
There is the view that energy will come back to represent a larger % of the index again.

Q: Hello:

Appreciate your steady guidance through latest "interesting" markets.

What are the realistic possible paths for oil pricing and related companies? i.e. +6mo, +1 year, +2-3 years?

The Russia factor is a huge variable and I cannot see global sympathy restoring demand for Russian oil but money talks ... when I see US pump prices something will have to move longer term or there will be a lot of frustration and pain.

I own smaller positions in a few O&G companies at historic highs so I am tempted to take a little profit after not taking some for lots of growth stocks when they had tailwinds.

Q: Great 5i team, There are times like this; I will need to put my cash holding to work. I kept trimming energy names in our family portfolio to under 10% and staying on the sidelines for the last few months. Your thoughts are very much appreciated with these 2 questions: which one that you would pick 3 out of these 7 energy names and which sector that you will allocate the funds? I am light in industrial and health care. Thanks for your input.

BIR, WCP, PEY, CVE, GXE, & ERF have significant gains in my portfolio.

Q: Good morning,

I added these at the very low point of energy. 5% equal weight of my portfolio, now it becomes 20% ish. I am looking to cutting down by half. Should I keep the pipelines ENB & PPL & VET and cut the rest or just reduce across equal weight. Your thought is very much appreciated.

Thanks again!

Q: I've been self managing my portfolio for 18 months. I'm already retired but still maintain a buy and hold strategy. However I've seen nice profits disappear on some of my holdings and I'm wondering if and when it's wise to take profits. For example, my CVE stock has increased 118% and now represents 5.25% of a portfolio that has about 15% in energy. Is this a good time to sell all or a portion of CVE and invest the dough in another company or continue to hold for the next couple of years and reap the dividends?

Q: Hi Team: I currently have 21% of my portfolio in Canadian oil stocks (Cenovus 10%, Suncor 8% and Westcap Res. 1%). Iím concerned that this may be too overweighted in oils for current market and economic conditions. If it is in your opinion, what would you trim and by how much? If it matters in your consideration, 24% is in fixed income.

Q: Hello, conservative investor and thinking about adding an oil and gas ETF into my portfolio and am looking at XEG vs HEE. Now, I know HEE writes covered calls, so I was surprised when looking at 5 and 10 year returns that HEE's return was lower than XEG. Conversely, in up years, HEE had higher returns than XEG. I would have expected this to the be the opposite. Are you able to say why this has been the case? Thank you.
