Q: Good Morning;

I own 500 shares of TOU. Because I bought them a couple years ago and trimmed as they rose, my dollar cost average on these shares is zero!! This position accounts for 24.5% of my portfolio, but is such a great holding that I am reluctant to sell any of it!!

I know it is a bad idea to become married to a holding, but with the dividend and special dividends this holding is providing, I am reaping approx 10% return this year!! How do I replace that kind of a return, and what would your advice be? Would you consider CWB as a good option for a new position (I own 225 shares of BNS as my only other bank holding.

Q: Hi, How significant is Tourmaline's 15 years long term Export Marketing contract with Cheniere Energy, announced last year, to supply 140,000 mmBtu of natural gas, per day through TC Energy pipeline, commencing January, 2023. It appears that TOU will benefit from international pricing for this business. Does the company also indirectly benefit from the tight and lucrative LNG market, where Cheniere, perhaps has a dominant position ? Thank You

Q: I wish to add more energy stocks to my portfolio for diversification. I have ENB and SU. I am thinking of adding GXE, PXT & TOU, all three seem to have very low or no debt, and either PPL or TRP. All for a 5-year hold. I do enjoy the high dividend yield but would still wish to have some growth and safety. Please feel free to add or remove any from my list of your choice, rank them from the best to the least, and each with a reasonable entry price. How long of a time frame would you recommend to spread over the additions?

Thank you again for your insight.

Q: If a 2% tax is imposed upon oil and gas co. share buybacks, I assume that free cash flow will be directed toward debt repayment and dividend increases, with low debt companies raising dividends the most. Which O&G companies would you recommend, ( if my assumption is correct )?

Q: hello 5i:
reviewing previous questions from members, I take it that TOU and CNQ would be your two favourite energy companies with diversification for oil and nat gas. Is that correct?

Can you reiterate the yields of these two (including the special dividends) and your take on the sustainability of the dividends? Are debt levels moving down? Are these two cheap on a last 5year comparison (PE, earnings yield, P/S, P/FCF and enterprise value)?
