Q: Is there an easy way of calculating the dividend yield if the company issues special dividend during the year. I know the present yield is 1.74%, but what would be the dividend yield if you include the special dividends it has issued during the last year. Or if there is a site that does the calculation for you I would appreciate getting it. Many tnx for all your hard work.

Q: How would you rank these companies in terms of overall growth going forward in the energy sector. I'm currently holding TOU, WCP, TVE and KEL.

Largest position is in TOU at around 3% (+44%) and smaller positions in WCP (+69%), TVE (-9%) and KEL (-14%) . I could add to any of these names. How does TOU compare vs AR in terms of natural gas companies? AR has pulled back in the last year and today it was up close to 9% which I couldn't find any news. I'm thinking of selling some TOU or just starting a new position in AR. I also like that AR is buying back shares, have strong insider ownership, founder operated, strong margins and balance sheet. All metrics seem pretty strong with AR, any red flags that you see? Thoughts?

Q: I sold my TOU & ARX about 2 months ago when the price of gas dropped and I was glad I did because both stocks drop app 20%. Right now the price of gas is still only about $2.30 and I hear that there is currently an over supply of Gas in North America (not sure about Europe - but I don't believe either company can get Gas to Europe yet) but both TOU and ARC are both rising. Why? Based on the current price of GAS both companies will see a huge drop in earnings this year. What am I missing??

Q: Hi, Energy sector has witnessed a sharp sell off last week, with market and decline in Oil prices. Recession worries seem to be growing higher and with ECB sticking to 0.50% rate hike, market seems to be expecting Fed to stay course with its hawkish stance, despite recent turbulence in banking sector. Some large Energy traders are reported to have lightened their positions significantly, early in the week. We as well as most of 5i members are simple retail buy and hold investors and do not have access to advanced tools/money flow and other expertise.

With the recent market backdrop in the sector, and Oil/NG prices flirting with new lows, has your view, in terms of maintaining about 10% weighing in the sector, changed ? Or, do you believe that market concerns are of short term in nature and there is value and a strong case to remain invested in the sector for say, at least 12-24 months ?

Mr. John O'Connell of Davis Rea was on BNN, warning viewers to stay away from the Energy sector, claiming that cost of production of most companies is higher than current prices. (which appears to be a questionable claim). On the other end, there is Mr Eric Nuttal, an expert in the sector with $2 Bln AUM, with completely opposite views.

Thank You
