2014-10-23 COMMENT Greg Newman

If WTI is at $80 and natural gas is at $3.50, he is modeling a debt to cash flow of 1.1X on 2015 estimates, which is very reasonable compared to the group at that level at 3X. A 2015 estimated payout ratio, so their dividend sustainability would be 114%, which is not bad. The valuation they would trade at would be 7.4X enterprise value to cash flow. You want to be closer to buying at these levels then to selling.

2014-10-22 COMMENT Bruce Campbell (2)

Feels the dividend, even at current oil prices, is fairly sustainable. Their all-in production costs and payout ratio is probably just slightly over 100% at this level. Hasn’t owned this for a while because he prefers other dividend stocks such as Surge (SGY-T) and Cardinal Energy (CJ-T). Crescent Point seems to be continually issuing stock as they buy more companies.

Cash flow per share is the more important metric.  Don’t get fussed about the high PE ratio.  The cash flow has to pay the big dividend and replace assets as they deplete.  He has never been bullish on CPG-T because their payout seems overly optimistic.  The payout ratio is unsustainable if oil prices stay low for any period of time.  If they cut the dividend then the stock will fall like a rock.  He only has SU-T and CNQ-T.

For a very long time, this company had a higher multiple and used its paper to issue, acquire and grow. It is a very large company now. Has been a good operator. Doesn’t have an enormous amount of debt and pays a very, very high yield. The question is how long does oil stay down. In really low oil prices, these shale oil plays are not the ones to look at for a safe haven in dividends. It is the bigger names that don’t have decline rates and have better balance sheets.

2014-10-07 COMMENT Christine Poole

The drop in the large-cap energy producers has really been predicated by the drop in crude oil prices. Even though WTI is around $88, the spread that the producers are getting has been narrowing, which is positive. Also, the Cdn$ has been weaker and crude is paid in US$, which dampens the price drop somewhat. Doesn’t think there is a lot of downside left in crude prices. This company has a very attractive dividend and very high quality light oil crude. Net backs are very high and she feels the dividend is safe. You could start picking at it, but you might want to wait until the crude price stabilizes.

Feels that the dividend is safe. Made a great acquisition about a year ago in Utah that has worked out quite well, US$ denominated and close to refining.

In big pools of oil and they know where the oil is. It’s all about keeping costs down, which they are very good at. Has dropped a bit in the last little while because the price of crude went from $107 to $91. They are hedged for part of their production, so the dividend is safe. Every time they drill a well, it costs them $3-$5 million so they have to be financed. Just did an issue. That, plus the weakness in the oil market, caused the stock to come off a little.

They have done a great job of executing. They have sold so much equity and it is owned by so many retail investors and portfolio managers that they need to go and find some new investors. They also need to say to Canadian dealers who have made a killing selling new issues for them, “We’re going to the US and hire Merrill Lynch and find some new investors.”. These deals are just too big. Company has done a great job of executing, but it is strictly a case of flow of funds, too many shares in too few accounts.

Down about 3% today on news of their Whitestream acquisition. Have a dominant position in the Saskatchewan oil patch. Basically have long life reserves which they can exploit with enhanced oil recovery methods. They continue to solidify their position. It always trades at a high valuation in the light oil space and they continue to do a lot of acquisitions diluting themselves and probably over distributing on dividends. However, it has very good asset qualities. If you are a dividend oriented investor, you can probably hold on to it, or even buy some on the current dip.

(A Top Pick Aug 27/13. Up 24.72%.) 6.2% dividend yield. Have continuously bought land, which is highly prospective. Essentially, the recovery rate for the Bakken type wells that they drill is 15%-20%. 20%-30% for a normal conventional well. There are 750 wells that they think they can use their water flood and production liner techniques to enhance the recovery and get it up to 20%, maybe higher. They have an inventory of 7650 wells going forward, to which they can apply these techniques. $53 would be a reasonable estimate. Yield of 6.17%.
