2015-05-27 COMMENT Bill Bonner

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.

Financial leverage is about 1.8X debt to cash flow, which is very reasonable. The sustainability ratio, when you account for the dividend reinvestment program, is about 112%. They have a very disciplined three-year rolling hedging program. In 2015 they were about 45% hedged on their oil. In 2016, they’re something like 30%. All of the things are in place to keep it a very stable and sustainable dividend.

Change from Crescent Point (CPG-T) to Vermilion Energy (VET-T)? We don’t have the thematic backdrop that is good for energy. Doesn’t think you should be switching horses from one energy stock to another. Thinks you should leave energy and move on to a different sector. Both are going to have difficulty if energy prices move lower. None of these dividends are safe if oil prices go lower.

This company has done a great job of executing. They keep telling you how many drilling locations they have in inventory, and yet they keep buying things and issuing equity and paying out a big dividend at the same time. You are investing your money in the company, to give it back to you through a dividend and you have to pay tax on it, and then they issue more equity to buy more oil/gas in the ground. Thinks they have saturated the market and are going to have to find new investors. Expects they are going to acquire something in the next 6 months which will put a lid on the stock.

She feels the dividend is safe. Have done well with cutting their CapX programs to make sure they can pay the dividend. Because they have the dividend reinvestment program, 30% of the dividend is paid for in shares, which gives them the ability to make sure that they have enough cash on the books to pay for the rest of the dividends.

Very sustainable relative to their peers, but even with these hedges, $50 oil and $3 natural gas, he feels the balance sheet will weaken and debt to cash flow will climb to 2.3% and cash flow per share will fall by about 33% and the effective payout ratio will rise to about 158%.

Has had an interesting record. Coming out of 2008, spot prices got down to the mid-$30 a barrel range, and this company was able to maintain its dividend at that point. Currently they are on track to maintain their dividend through this cycle, but it all depends on how fast the oil price comes back. He feels this company has built itself as good as one can in terms of a conservative balance sheet, good properties and a propensity to work hard at maintaining the dividend.

Pretty compelling value if you have a longer-term time horizon. Doesn’t think the dividend is necessarily at risk, unless oil stays right where it is. He views the current decline as being somewhat transitory in nature and thinks the commodity price will go back up. Companies like this, that are relatively well capitalized, should benefit as the commodity price rebounds. Operationally, they have done a very good job of diversifying their business. In hindsight, the acquisitions they made were a little bit expensive, but they do have hedges in place that hopefully will stabilize the balance sheet and be able to push them through 2015 until you see the commodity price go up.

(He has some positions in some small accounts.) An extremely well-run and well-managed company. The properties they bought give them drilling opportunities going forward for a number of years. With prices coming off as severely as they have recently, they have cut back on their capital expenditure plans from about $2 billion to $1.5 billion. Exited 2014 at about 145,000 barrels a day and are expected to average about that amount this year, which would be an increase over 2014.

Today they announced they are cutting its capital expenditure program, but maintaining its dividend. The key for all names that have high CapX and are returning money to shareholders, is how long that energy stays down. If crude stays down longer than 12 weeks, then we are going to have some problems. If we go into March and we still have these low prices, then we are going to start to have problems. Market is not worried about crude being down now, but for how long it is going to be down. He would be very careful on this.

He likes the energy sector, big picture.  It is a no brainer investment over the next 5 to 10 years.  But it is going to be a tough year until we get stabilization.  He thinks a lot of the bad news is priced in.  He does not think an oil price at $30 is justified.  Supply and demand fundamentals should create a bottom here.  This is where you want to be a buyer, not a seller.  There is some risk, however, that the dividend could get cut.

Thinks the dividend is okay and sustainable. One of the things this company has done really well is that they have the best properties around. A fantastic management team. The problem they have is that it is a growth and income oriented vehicle. Where is the growth component, is it really going to be there in this low commodity priced environment? 10% yield.
