Q: Is your opinion on VET improving? Seems like they might be at the "right place, right time" since a fair chuck of their cash flow is associated with European natural gas. The supply there is being pinched by Russia and spot prices are rising rapidly. Haven't looked in detail but it seems that VET's cash flow should be very high going forward, especially if they can hedge at high prices. Would guess they can reinstate some dividend. Thoughts?

Q: Eric Nuttall has an interesting column in the Financial Post today saying investing in oil and gas right now is a 'generational opportunity', that Canadian oil and as are hugely undervalued and could double in a year. What do you think of increasing oil and gas holdings? How much do you think would be appropriate right now and do you still think Suncor is the way to go? I notice you have only a very small 1% holding in the balanced portfolio.

Q: Greetings 5i,

I like VET. I think there is value here for the patient.

Can you please explain Vermilion's current HEDGE obligations. With oil prices recently higher than the current did they manage to get locked in to reasonable prices?

Secondly, on the company website it mentions a Sustanability transition and a geothermal project coming to fruition this fall. Will VET no longer be a O&G producer in the future? What are your thoughts on this.

Q: I have stayed away from energy, except for ENB and TC, which are pipelines.
Do you think there is more upside in the O & G stocks. If so what would you suggest?
Also the same goes for basic materials. I am not interested in gold. What would be your picks for basic materials.
Thanks for your service, I would be lost without it.

Q: I have been slowly existing this sector ( including pipelines ) as it is fraught with so many political, environmental, supply/ demand issues. The recent rise in o&g prices I see as temporary; the world has changed and the market has assigned a lower valuation to stocks in this industry. These are my remaining holdings ( bought at much higher prices) which comprise approximately 2 % of total portfolios. Believe I should sell them and get them off my portfolio sheet ( and out of my head ! ). Selling is much harder than buying. Your thoughts would be appreciated. Derek
