General Comment by Robert McWhirter

Bias Subject Owned

Energy. From a technical analysis perspective, oil hit a bottom in June at $42. Despite that oil can be found for less than $40 in a lot of US oil sands locations, this is more of a general economic reflection. The stock indices of emerging market countries, have broken a six-year downtrend, a reflection of an improved economic activity. With that comes a rising demand for commodities, including energy, and he thinks oil has bottomed at $42. This is in a band of roughly $42-$56. Whether it goes to the top end of that band or not, it is a significant percentage change and would be very beneficial to a lot of energy companies on the TSX. If we get an increase in overall world demand, that should help with the overall tone and hopefully with the price of oil.
