The December low is going to hold.  He wants to be accumulating for the next 10 percent lower.  Beyond the noise of today, this is a buying opportunity for today.

It is a very credible management team. Energy may not be where you want to fish right now, but this one is good if your outlook is 3 to 5 years.  This will be one of those survivors in the energy patch.

High dividend yield.  There is a concern in the marketplace about the sustainability of the dividend, although she is comfortable with it.  If oil stayed here or went lower then she would reconsider the dividend sustainability.  She is cautious about stepping into oil plays in a big way, however.

2015-06-22 PAST TOP PICK Peter Brieger

(Top Pick May 20/14, Down 34.64%)  He is down because of the oil mess.  He talked to the company extensively and it is one of the best run companies in the country.  It is going to be a true mid to large cap producer.  They acquire land or companies with land.  They keep on issuing equity to pay for acquisitions.  In the latest deal they picked up 700 wells that are conducive to water flood with recover rates of 15-25%.  Despite all the issuance of new shares, you look at the production growth per share and it is positive.

2015-06-18 COMMENT Greg Newman

Just issued a lot more equity, which is helping to protect their balance sheet. Paying a real high dividend. Debt to cash flow is pretty high at around 2.5X. There are better ways to be making money than this. If you have it, OK.

Thinks this one is a Buy in this kind of environment. You do want to be in a company where their capital is essentially going to be safe. This is a call option on higher oil prices. Did an acquisition of Legacy Oil, which is a very good acquisition. It is accretive and right in their backyard. She thinks the market is getting fatigued with their deals.

Acquiring Legacy (LEG-T). They have garnered a reputation for being a serial issuer. In this kind of oil price environment, people probably now appreciate that they issued stock and didn’t leverage up to do a lot of deals they did. Leaves them in a strong position. The 10.08% dividend is safe given the hedging they have in place for this year, and about a 3rd into 2016. The balance sheet is still solid.

Had good support of around $35 for a number of years. Currently there is a shorter term support at around $27.50, which it has tested a couple of times. If it doesn’t hold this level, it would probably go to the low it had at the end of December and the low $20s. Dividend yield of around 10%.

The company did an equity issue to buy Legacy a couple of weeks ago. Got it at a good price and it is going to be a good acquisition for them longer-term. The company has cut capital spending. Have a very good hedging position this year. Dividend yield of 10.2%, and they would rather cut capital spending rather than cut the dividend.

Raised $600 Million a week or two ago to fund an acquisition, which he likes.  He likes CPG-T.  If we get to $60 oil it could be a $30-$32 stock.  People don’t like the sustainability of the dividend.  They were at 135% payout, but after this acquisition it lowers the payout by about 10 points.  Their dividend should be seen as more sustainable.  He doesn’t see the dividend being cut.

2015-06-08 COMMENT Michael Sprung

There have been a number of moving parts lately. Just acquired Legacy, which was a big acquisition. In order to do so, they had to raise capital, which increased debt to cash flow to around 3.4 times. Also, increased their payout ratio to over 100%. They are not earning their dividend, so are depending again on their DRIP program. Yield of around 10%, is usually a worrying sign. He is not adding to his position, but is watching it carefully.

Recently did a new issue again. They are very busy, and he applauds them on how busy they are. Their balance sheet is pretty strong and they have the flexibility to maintain that dividend. But they absolutely have to have the oil price recover, and he doesn’t believe that will happen.

2015-06-03 COMMENT Alex Ruus

On this one, you really have to have an outlook on where you think oil is going. If you are bullish on oil, this is one of the plays to own. A dominant producer in the Bakken in Saskatchewan. Recently acquired Legacy, which had good assets that were complementary to this company’s holdings. He sees oil in the next 6 months as flat to slightly down, but as we go into next year it should start to rise. This would be one of the positions he would be comfortable owning here.

He has always had a problem with them constantly issuing equity.  He would prefer a company that didn’t need to do it.  The Legacy acquisition is okay.  He likes them more now than last year because more of their assets are outside of Alberta.  If the cycle turns, the acquisition will look really good.  Don’t worry about the dividend.

2015-06-01 TOP PICK Bruce Campbell (1)

Acquired Legacy (LEG-T) and had to assume some debt to do some equity. In a sense that is the kiss of death for some people, but this is an accretive acquisition and you didn’t want them to do it for all debt. The equity issue is at $28.50 and the stock is still $.50 underwater. Thinks that at around $28 with a 2.76% dividend, it gives you almost a 10% yield. If it goes back to where it was 2 days before the acquisition, the stock will be up 10 from here and with a 10% dividend, $31 a year from now gives you a 20% return. Yield of 9.85%.

The behaviour in the market today would suggest that the financing they did didn’t go as smoothly as what they had hoped. Just acquired Legacy (LEG-T), which was a name that he liked once. As time marched on, their balance sheet just overcame all the upside. Crescent Point is getting some outstanding assets. This is one of the best Saskatchewan operators, but he prefers others.

This is a serial acquirer and issuer of shares. This works great for investment bankers, but not as great for shareholders over time. They have had a tendency of buying in areas that are contiguous where they already have operations. He liked them when they were not buying and issuing shares. Recently sold his holdings.

This is his largest energy holding. The CEO is one of the strongest entrepreneurs in the energy patch. A lot of the assets they have include a lot of production in Saskatchewan, which hasn’t had a change in government. Also, in Utah and North Dakota. This is a very good company to be in. The dividend is sustainable.

Have terrific properties in Western Canada. Produce very high quality crude and are a fairly low cost producer. Like everybody else in the energy field, they are a price taker. They don’t get to determine what the price for their commodity is going to be. His vision is that we are going to see energy prices drop fairly sharply from their current level. Because of this, he is not buying any energy companies at the moment and doesn’t own any.

(Top Pick Jun 5/14, Down 27.26%) It has held up okay considering the sector.  They did not cut the dividend in 2008 and aren’t considering cutting it now.  They are run very conservatively.  They are a low cost producer.  They have a deep asset inventory.  Only 6% of production is in Alberta.  9.18% dividend.

Energy stocks have had a terrific run recently, and we are at the point where a lot of them are anticipating higher energy prices.

(A Top Pick April 28/14. Up down 22.03%.) He plans on buying when it goes below $30. They have an inventory of about 7500 wells, which will keep them going for quite a while. Most of the wells are eligible for a secondary water flood, which can give the production rate quite a boost. He thinks they will continue to do well and will maintain their dividend.

Sold his holdings because he was convinced that the price of oil was not going anywhere soon. This one has held up way better and has acted way better than a lot of oil stocks. It has great land positions. Also, management has very prudently hedged about 60% of their production at around $90 a barrel. The dividend is safe under current conditions, but he questions if it is safe next year if oil prices stay at a low level.

He has been negative on energy for a while. The only “close to oil/gas” name he owns would be Enbridge (ENB-T). The dividend on this is safe for now, i.e. over the next 6 months. Anything longer than that is really a wildcard. You don’t want to bet the farm on the fact that they are hedged and that the dividend won’t go down.
