Suncor vs. Pembina Investor sentiment for oil is very weak, but Suncor is among the better performers in the last decade because their Oil Sands assets have such a long life that they don't have to keep investing money each year to maintain that production. Ultimately, Canada needs to see takeaway capacity to improve. He owns Pembina which is not as directly effected by the oil price. Suncor is an oil play; Pembina is an income play. Either one is fine.

Issue for the oil industry is that they have to continue to explore, pay their large dividends, and decarbonize themselves. Great company. Bigger issue is how they become less carbon intensive. If they don't, they'll be starved for capital. Suncor's making an effort in these areas. You can hold it for the dividend. He owns CNQ instead.

Does it matter which party wins the US election to benefit the Oil Sands? He owns no oil stocks, but he thinks Suncor is the best of the bunch. They have integrated downstream and retail. Oil is a sunset industry. The world is against oil. He thinks the TransMountain will get built, but he still wouldn't own oil.

oil Oil is tricky. It's a broken market that may or may not be coming back. Some have returned to gold too early. Over the decades, oil has risen and fallen largely due to spin (i.e. Peak Oil). He picks up a little oil when the stocks get cheap. Oil is a messy space. Of the juniors, WCP is his favourite. SU-T is the senior one he likes. But he really likes Advantage (but they deal in natural gas, not oil).

It does not hurt to have a major integrated player. There will be some noise going forward as they have had some unplanned outages. Their production forecasts are a little lower than analysts expected and their capex requirements were a bit higher. A solid company that generates significant free cash flow -- they hope to increase that by $2 billion. The most broadly owned energy stock in Canada. Yield 3.8% (Analysts’ price target is $49.64)

CNQ-T vs. SU-T. He thinks we are at the point where we have peak demand for carbon-based energy. By 2025 every car manufacturer will at least have a hybrid. There will always be at last a little demand for carbon-based energy. Right now we are generating more energy from solar than from coal, so we are moving in the right direction. He is indifferent to the two stocks.

SU vs. CNQ He owns CNQ; with CU, they are the two best-run Canadian oil companies. They've maintained decent share prices as its peers got washed out. SU has benefitted from the diversity of their refining assets when the WTI price differential widened CNQ is a cash-flow machine, decreasing debt and costs. You can own SU or CNQ, not both. CNQ is in a better position of returning shareholder dollars through share buybacks and/or raising the dividend. Caveat: if oil prices rise in 2020, these two giants won't benefit as much as its smaller peers (e.g. WCP) which have fallen further.
