Q: Dear Peter et al:

Can you give me the names of 3 companies each that fulfill these criteria. I tried to "curate" the list by myself by going through 6 months worth of questions on Energy sector but really couldn't compile a decent selection as the questions exhibited significant variance.

Question # 1.

Mid cap oils (not gas)

Good to great free cash flow

FCF well directed to share buy backs, debt reduction and dividend enhancement.

Solid management
(I know this is subjective but I know that you know the players well!)

Showing good momentum and growth prospects.
You can include a small cap if you think it i soon going to be a mid cap.

Question # 2.

Same criteria but in Large cap oils.

Many thanks.

Q: Considering taking a position (up to 2%) in a dividend paying oil/gas company, and looking at FRU or WCP. Could I get your comments on the royalty structure vs a producer, as well as a comparison of the metrics such as payout percentage, debt, guidance, etc. Do you have a preference, and would you even consider adding an oil producer at this time. I have some ETFs with small positions in some oil companies, but no direct holdings of my own.
Thank-you

Q: Hi guys at 5 i's

I know that nat gas prices are in the doldrums and if this mild winter continues nat gas is not going to get much of a bid. But Tourmaline TOU is getting down into the mid $50 again and the last year or more whenever it gets back down there it usually doesn't take long to go back to the mid $60's. I own a core position in TOU because of the dividends and the chance that if nat gas goes up for some reason (problems in exporting LNG from Qatar/freaky cold weather, etc.) that TOU will rock upwards. Still I am tempted to trade some additional shares of TOU. I was doing that with ARX but sold out of ARX in the $21.50 range not long ago and I am waiting for a under $20 share price on ARX to get back in. Where do you think TOU might bottom out if nat gas stays low all year because I can't see it going much below the mid $45 range.

Q: I own these energy stocks and some are on the plus side and others are on the losing side. I've been waiting for quite some time for the Chinese economy to take off, but it seems to go nowhere ? I would like to trim some of my holdings. Please place them in order of what you would keep down to some you would let go. Maybe you could code them as 10 being the best and 1 as being the worst. Thanks.

Q: Hi 5i,
I have about 15K that I want to put into my RSP before the February deadline and then immediately invest for a minimum 5 year hold to accumulate capital gain and dividend income. Currently I'm considering TOU or DIR.UN for this, and would appreciate your thoughts about the relative merits of each for this use of the funds, and which one you think will outperform the other on a total gain basis in that time period - based on just the standard ups, downs and risks that are out there and not taking into account any potential calamitous economic events.
Thanks!
Peter

Q: Are there any particularly compelling resource stocks that are worth buying currently. I have zero exposure to commodities and I am fine with that, but I am open to your recommendations, either CAD or US. I am a moderate-to-agressive investor.

Thank you.

Q: Hi,

I am wanting to start a position int TOU but need to raise the cash. Below is where I am thinking of raising the cash.

I have positions in the following:

ENB 6.35 % ( I do not want to sell)
SU 1.33% ( Sell Full position)
TRP 1.13 % (Sell Full Position)

That leaves me with KEY at 4.22% and PPL at 2.78% To get my 5% weighting in TOU I can decide on whether to sell PPL or KEY.

Your thoughts? Does it make sense?

Jimmy
