2016-02-05 DON'T BUY Allan Meyer

They had said their dividend was safe, and then followed that by cutting it. Based on where we are with current oil prices, they may have to cut the dividend again. At these levels they are barely covering their cash costs, and are not able to spend enough money on maintaining their production to capital expenditures.

2016-02-05 COMMENT Hap (Robert) Sneddon FCSI

In his view this as a bit more of a conservative energy stock. Chart shows a double bottom (August and January), which is quite interesting. That is where the market has seen value. You are probably going to find resistance right where we are right now. This is not a bad place. Dividend yield of 7.9% is a little high.

2016-02-03 COMMENT Norman Levine

A name he would probably want to own when it is a good time to own energy stocks. For the most part, this company is not in Alberta. Has a decent balance sheet. Cut back on their spending and dividends. A good history of hedging production. They should be a survivor and a name you want to own in the future.

They had always done significant stock issues.  Now that energy prices are a lot lower, they cut their dividend.  It will trade in a range for a while.

The energy sector has been in under a lot of pressure.  This is the time to start doing homework on higher quality companies.  They generate good cash flow and have hedges in place.  The market is forward looking and there is a lot of bad news about oil.  When things swing a long way to one side, he tries to look at the other side.  CPG-T is a good quality name in the space.

You wonder why it has been a favourite when you look at the chart.  We are below the financial crisis low.  There has been a volume increase during 2015.  We have probably had a bottom, but how high is it going to go?  There are better places to go.  It is for traders only.

Crescent Point (CPG-T) or Whitecap (WCP-T)? Hasn’t cut its dividend for a while, and thinks they should cut. Wait until they make a decision on the dividend and look at it after that.

At the oil price he models, their dividend is sustainable. Debt to cash flow is pretty reasonable at about 2.2% at $50 oil. However, it is not sustainable at $30 oil. They do have some hedges for 2016-2017 below $40 oil. He doesn’t think any Canadian oil stocks are Buys here.

2016-01-20 BUY Douglas Kee

This company has great assets, and they are concentrated which is good. Also, has a good balance sheet. Their yield has gone up. They cut their dividend last year. If oil prices are $30 come the summer, they will likely cut their dividend again. If you have a 2-year horizon with this stock, he thinks you will be in good shape buying it here. He would rather buy when oil is $40 again, knowing that oil has bottomed.

2016-01-07 BUY Michael Sprung

Owns a little. For years he was a little jaundiced about the company, as they were really depending on their dividend reinvestment program to sustain what was a fairly large discipline. Over the last year or so, they really got religion and have cut back their dividend. Have also got much more disciplined about their capital programs. Recently announced that their forecasted budget for next year was going to be about 40% less then previously announced. On the positive side, this company owns great assets. If prices were better, they could be drilling for many, many years. Now is the time to be looking at this.

It has a lot of growth coming in production.  If oil stays under $60 for a few more months a lot of their hedges would come off.  The dividend is in question.  It would be one of his favourites if oil did okay.

Now would not be a good time to get into it.  They have a lot of hedges so have done well so far.  Unless you get a really sharp recovery in the oil price, they will have a lot of problems when the hedges roll off.  They already cut the divided.  He is not comfortable with the sector at all.

2015-12-31 COMMENT Eric Nuttall

His Top holding, and remains a mystery to him because it is materially cheaper than other names with inferior projects, balance sheets and dividend yields. Feels the dividend is safe. People are still hung up on the amount of paper they issued over the past few years. They did so to acquire a lot of properties. Management owns a lot of stock. In terms of quality, this company is in the top 10 in terms of quality in Canada.

It is a high quality company, but you have to appreciate that they have a lot of hedges in this year (50%) and only about 30% next year.  He is not sure what the payout ratio will look like next year.

2015-12-14 PAST TOP PICK Peter Brieger

(A Top Pick Dec 29/14. Down 41.46%.) A fabulous company. They just have to cut their dividend finally. They are now down to $0.10 per month. Have suspended their DRIP. One of the best managed companies in Canada. It will come back, once we get oil stabilizing. He would put new money to work in this one.

If you are looking for yield, the current yield is sustainable. Cash flow and production were in line. His company has a $30 target on this. He would be getting ready to add, but would wait a little longer.

Near term, he sees short term downside from the commodity price.  They will probably do some more acquisition rollups.  Over time they do well and produce free cash flow.  Over two years you will make money.

2015-12-01 COMMENT Bill Harris, CFA

In the screen of investable mid-cap companies, this is #1 or #2 out of 5 that he likes. (See comments under Valeant (VET-T).) Still a fairly high valuation with WTI at $42. The nice thing about this is that it is in Saskatchewan and technically the chart looks pretty good. They should’ve cut their dividend to zero. This is generally a decent play on oil. He is looking at this one very closely.

2015-11-20 TOP PICK Eric Nuttall

If you want energy or oil exposure, this is a name that will be a primary beneficiary. When people want a play in the recovery of an oil price, they will sell the Suncors and buy this. Trading at around 6.3-6.4 times cash flow, using $55 oil. If he is wrong in his timing of an oil recovery, they have a fairly decent hedge position for 2016 and financial leverage that is well below average. Dividend yield of about 7.08%.

2015-11-11 BUY Martin Davies

He likes the company. Cut their dividend down to $0.10 a share, which was the right thing to do. They were punished for this initially, but in the long run they will be rewarded because of the sustainability of the company. A great deal of their production is on very low decline long life assets through the use of water floods. Most assets are in Saskatchewan. A good place to be.

2015-11-04 COMMENT Lyle Stein

They have cut their dividend once. They need $1.9-$2 billion a year to sustain production. At current oil prices, with or hedges in place, they are at that level. Ultimately this is a capital recycling story and capital recycling stories shouldn’t have dividends at the 6.5% level. Sold his holdings midyear. (See Top Picks.)

This has been beaten down along with all the other oil names. Generally speaking this is a positive. One of the better names in terms of growth. His biggest issue is that they tended to issue equity fairly often. They may not be doing that right now, but when times get better that could continue. That creates a big dilution.

This is not something that he has owned. Thinks it is pretty fair at these valuations. Trading at about 4X cash flow. However, this is a company that has lived by acquisition, rather than through the drill bit. He prefers to own companies whose future is tied to the drill bit and what they can do in that area. Prefers Tourmaline (TOU-T) and Parex(PXT-T), which he feels are better alternatives.
