Consensus
Mixed
Valuation
Undervalued
SELL

Sell it. Value trap. Too many assets, not enough geographical concentration. The free cashflow yield that everyone's fallen in love with rolls off significantly in 2 years.

DON'T BUY

Too much noise. A tax-loss candidate. Don't buy. The warm winter meant weak heating demand. Also, their assets are too scattered, lacking focus, while the dividend isn't attractive enough. Some flagship assets will decline. It's a value trap.

DON'T BUY

The biggest knock is that they have 5 operations round the world when they need focus. It remains challenged and deserves to trade at a discount. Look elsewhere for less risk and more reward.

WEAK BUY

Not his favourite in energy. If it break its 200-day moving average it will move even higher though. But if fundamentals continue to do well, so will VET. The stock is well-positioned.

DON'T BUY

Not that familiar with it, but it's had issues in France. All Canadian-based energy will do well. But VET is back on track. Not his top pick in this space.

TOP PICK

Company has turned around - last quarter very strong. Believes energy prices will remain high. Company progressing in de-leveraging. Free cash flow will be returned to shareholders (~50%). Dividends are robust, and company on the way to recovery. Good valuation that offers safety for long term investors.

DON'T BUY

A relative underperformer. Pays a yield under 3%. They're trying to re-establish their Canadian base in the Montney after stumping their toe in Europe and the U.S. Investors see better valuations in Canada or the U.S. as oppose to conglomerate North American and European names. Dividend is too low for him.

HOLD

European assets unique - creates higher realization of pricing. Prefers assets in North America (risky in Europe at times.) Better names in North American market (Tourmaline etc.) Good business, but does not own shares. 

oil / gas
WEAK BUY

Bit of an upswing now, but very subtle. If it goes up another $1, it's in full-swing upturn. $13.70 is your firm exit price. He's being really tight with this to lock in his profit. Has been very disappointing for lots of people.

TOP PICK
Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly

We again reiterate VET as a TOP PICK.  Cash reserves are growing, while debt is retired and shares bought back.  It trades under book value and supports a ROE of 36%.  We continue to recommend a stop at $18, looking to achieve $25 -- upside potential of 23%.  Yield 1.7%

(Analysts’ price target is $25.18)

COMMENT

It has exposure to European gas and has had excess profits. European governments decided to tax these profits so this brought the share price down. Also European gas prices have been coming down. If you want exposure to gas go to a diversified company. She does not have exposure to energy producers.

WATCH

Has owned this in the past. Likes their gas position in France, given the sanctions on Russia. VET could take a larger market share. He watches this.

oil / gas
HOLD

Prefers other names in sector.
Price leverage not sustainable in Europe (windfall profit taxes etc.). 
Does not see inventory depth relative to other names.
Expecting 30% upside @ $90 oil.

TOP PICK
Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly

We again reiterate VET as a TOP PICK.  The company has aggressively reduced debt all the way down to one year's cash flow and its energy portfolio is well diversified.  It trades at 6x earnings, under book value and supports a 36% ROE.  We recommend trailing up the stop (from $16) to $18, looking to achieve $25 -- upside potential over 25%.  Yield 1.8%
