2015-05-14 DON'T BUY Allan Meyer

He got out of it because the lower oil price would hurt it.  The dividend cut was needed to keep the balance sheet intact.  Longer term you will be fine.

2015-05-06 COMMENT John Stephenson

There is very limited growth associated with this company, so it is essentially an oil bond. If your view is that oil is going higher, then it is okay to play it. However, he thinks you are better off with something that offers a little more growth.

2015-04-30 COMMENT Hap (Robert) Sneddon FCSI

Would you consider Shorting this? Whenever you get one that pays a dividend, it gets a little bit dicey when it comes to Shorting. If this broke above the $14 level, he would say that Shorting would be wrong because something else is going on. Right now, he wouldn’t consider Shorting, but would probably go Long. Just keep your Stops tight.

Sold his holdings and has no desire to go back to it. An exceedingly volatile stock. Part of it is because every other day somebody is whispering takeover rumours.

2015-04-14 HOLD Don Vialoux

This has very strong seasonal influences. It tends to bottom some time in January and then move higher right through until the end of May. From a technical point of view, it is outperforming the TSE Composite and is above its 20 day moving average. Historically this has done very well to the end of May-June, so you still have another 5 or 6 weeks to go.

2015-04-08 COMMENT Robert Lauzon

At this level of the commodity price, this company does not make a lot of money. Probably break even. Dividend should probably be cut to zero. This owns a piece of Syncrude. The operator of Syncrude is Exxon and there are 7 or 8 shareholders. To him, this company should not exist, but the question is, what is somebody willing to pay for it.

2015-04-02 DON'T BUY Bill Carrigan

You want to look for oil stocks that have higher relative stocks to the index.  This is an underperformer.  We are below the lows of 2011/12. It’s a great long term story, but he suggests you look for stronger ones.  Compare all energy stocks to XEG-T to determine relative strength.

They have been fraught with production challenges. Views this as a pure play option on the direction of oil prices. Not a great investment to make at this time. He would move into something else.

2015-03-30 BUY Martin Davies

Pure play on syncrude which is a partnership of a variety of companies.  He thinks the chances that there would be a consolidation of the shares in this project would be remote.  They are going to be giving a lot more money back to shareholders.

2015-03-12 DON'T BUY Paul Harris, CFA

Oil will probably go down a little bit more from here. Thinks you would be better off with a Canadian Natural Resources (CNQ-T) or Suncor (SU-T) which have much better balance sheets, better businesses and better management. If you think oil is going to be higher in the next couple of years, this gives you a real chance to look at these companies, and buy really great companies.

Wouldn’t own this under any circumstances. It has 13 members on the board. The minimum payment to a board member is about $200,000. This is not a huge growth opportunity and a very expensive business to run. The balance sheet has gotten destroyed.

2015-02-19 DON'T BUY Don Lato

This stock is heavily dependent on the commodity price. He would bide his time before investing in a stock like this. A lot of the bad news is certainly reflected in the stock. Would prefer a company with a much sounder balance sheet.

2015-02-13 WAIT Brendan Caldwell

Canadian oil trades for less money than Brent, West Texas, etc., because it is really, really hard to get it out of where it is to anywhere else. He does not see a big resurgence in the price of energy here. Where he thinks there is going to be a jump in this company is if they do get approval for the Keystone pipeline. His bet is that you should Wait.

2015-02-12 DON'T BUY Swanzy Quarshie

A lot of people were putting numbers together to see what the company would be worth if it were sold. It got to the point where it was so cheap that it was actually below the replacement costs for an oil sands project with an upgrader. People were looking at this as a potential take out. There was a big Short position and a lot of Shorts had to cover their positions. They have a good asset, but it is challenged by being just oily assets. In this environment, where their operating costs are $40, it is very challenging for them to make any money. She would prefer not to own this until there were higher oil prices. Easy money has been made.
