2015-01-22 DON'T BUY David Cockfield

He is not a fan.  He used to hold it, but they seemed to be into a type of operation that is going out of style.  He prefers pumping steam down to get your heavy oil up.  His capital requirements raises questions about ongoing cash flow and maintaining a reasonable dividend.  The oil sands in general are a little on the edge in terms of cost containment.  He steers away from totally oil sands focused opportunities.

2015-01-07 DON'T BUY Michael Sprung

They have peeled back their dividend. If he were to play the oil sands, he would rather do it through a more integrated fashion, such as a Suncor (SU-T) or Cenovus (CVE-T). If these prices remain depressed, we don’t know how long it might be until we actually see capital investment picking up again, or being able to justify the costs of building these oil sands producers.

This is an oil bond. There is no growth. It is a consortium of 5 players and none of them can agree on what to do next.

2014-12-23 COMMENT Brooke Thackray

All oil stocks will go up at the same time unless there is something specific about a company. This is one that you would expect to attract a little bit of attention because it is such a big name. If you start to see this pickup again and the oil sector starts to increase and you see momentum coming back to the sector, he could see a bounce that could happen here.

2014-12-19 COMMENT John Zechner

There has been a massive short covering in the last several days. Has been selling into this recent bounce, as he doesn’t feel it is necessarily sustainable. It could still be retesting these bottoms.

2014-12-18 DON'T BUY David Burrows

It is a technical rally, a bounce off the lows.  A bear market has short, sharp rallies.  They are a drop in the bucket.  COS-T is not the best in the sector, and he would prefer the best, which this isn’t, when one feels it has bottomed.  A bounce into the new year would be more of a trade.

2014-12-16 DON'T BUY Mike S. Newton, CIM FCSI

There are hundreds of stocks in the US and hundreds in Canada that are much more attractive. This has been an ongoing, very capital intensive enterprise where every year feels like it is going to be its year. Has been a real frustrating name to own. He would not be interested.

They rank as having the most debt.  This is risky.  He prefers strong balance sheet companies that have also been hit hard.

Not a name for him.  Balance sheet is a little levered.  The dividend cut put the stock down.  There could be another cut coming.

2014-12-05 DON'T BUY Rick Stuchberry

A higher cost producer, so he would not Buy it yet. Let crude bottom first. There is no huge rush to buy this. Because it is a high cost producer, the dividend is somewhat susceptible. He has others that he would prefer.

2014-12-01 DON'T BUY Barry Schwartz

He does not want to be in companies that are paying out more than what they are taking in. This is one of them. If oil stays at around $70 or goes lower, they are going to have to slash the dividend. Prefers to stick with the conservative ideas.

2014-11-21 HOLD Michael Sprung

Where it is trading today, he would not necessarily sell. If you are looking to participate in the oil sands, he might choose a different vehicle, but overall this company is at a level now where it looks reasonably valued. An extremely long-term play.

2014-11-07 DON'T BUY Keith Richards

This one breaks every technical rule that he can think of. When you had significant support at $20, the stock tested it over and over. This meant that people were buying it every time it got to the support level. It would hold or bounce off of it to the upside. Had a nice bounce earlier this year, but recently it fell and broke old support, really important support. A pretty ugly picture. Like a lot of energy stocks, it will probably have an oversold bounce. He wouldn’t be a long-term buyer of the stock.

2014-11-04 COMMENT Prakash Hariharan

With almost every energy company, the sustainability of the dividend is highly predicated on either issuance of preferred shares or convertible debentures to make the payment, but not really for a stronger quality in terms of cash balance and cash flow from operations. The sustainability of the dividend for the 1st or 2nd quarter, without any issuance of stock or preferred shares, is questionable for this company.

2014-11-03 SELL Norman Levine

Sold it because he wanted to lighten energy exposure and it was his preferred candidate to do this.  It is a pure oil sands producer.  They cannot increase their reserves.  The dividend is pretty safe at 8%.
