Q: I own Arc Resources. Some investors are suggesting the FCF is just not there anymore. It used to be higher (I believe around 25% FCF yield) but as of June 2022 it was reported to be closer to 15-17% FCF yield. Possibly one could get a higher yield with another energy company? I am thinking about selling, taking profits and adding to Surge Energy. I would like to hear your comments. Are there any issues with ARX? Thanks in advance!

Q: Hello Folks:
The oil and gas sector has provided good upside compared to tech and other segments.
Consequently we now have oversize exposure to this sector 20-25% weighting.
In your opinion have we seen most of the upside from this sector and perhaps should move some money elsewhere; particularly CVX, WCP, ARX and Hess? What is your opinion and also of which sectors have most upside?
Thanks for your great service!!!!

Q: Good morning. The thought crossed my mind a couple weeks ago that we could be in for a tough winter and thought of putting in a wood burning stove to offset natural gas usage in my home. With nat gas prices hitting the headlines with a 700% price increase.
What do you see for consumers of same across North America this heating season? Are regional shortages a possibility? I know this is a but unusual as a 5i question but your input would be appreciated. If you were to invest in nat gas stocks, or etf's where would you put your money, or has that horse left the trading barn already ? Thanks David. Please take as many questions as necessary.

Q: What are the best alternatives for investing conservatively in large cap LNG , without investing directly in a U.S. situs asset ? There are very significant U.S. estate tax issues for high net worth Canadians with U.S. situs assets . A Canadian sponsored ETF with U.S. holdings or a large cap conservative Canadian company would avoid the estate tax issue .

Q: Good morning

I am confused...I understand the risk of inflation, war, Covid etc...The demand may be restricted for oil (short-term) but it does not seem to makes sense the volatility in energy when many will be making tremendous cash when oils above $80...TVE, Arc, Whitecap stocks were higher when oil was rising in the $80 this just speculators jumping in and out...would it not be a good time in buy these stocks today as it seems to be quite emotional right now with the rest of the market...any other that you would recommend are being sold without thought of fundamentals?

Q: I understand that Arc (ARX) and Cheniere Energy (LNG-A) have entered an agreement whereby Arc will supply gas to Cheniere for a period of 15 years (subject to the decision to go ahead with construction in Corpus Christi, Texas)
I have a small position (106 shares) in Cheniere awaiting some event that makes it a great time to increase holdings. I have yet no position in Arc however do you think that the deal is big enough to ensure Arc will have a meaningful opportunity to find an excellent way to the outside world through Cheniere?
