A good way to get exposure to natural gas. They may not benefit as much from the price of natural gas rising as others, but they have good free cashflow. He would allocate 4-5% of his portfolio to it.

Has a decent balance sheet with a good cash flow. They've lowered capex, but will spend in Q4 when oil prices should rise for the winter. Buy this under $1. His one-year target is $4. But this when WTI falls below $30 this year, as he predicts. (Analysts’ price target is $2.20)

Bought at $4, $2 and $1. They released last week and production in Q1 was solid. He likes the balance sheet. They cut the dividend by about 80%, as he thinks the banks may have asked them to do so. They are mainly into natural gas (78% of production) and he is bullish on natural gas pricing in the latter half of the year.

Debt concerns? BXE took bankruptcy protection when debt became too much. There is no equity value in it any longer. Companies that have debt that matures in 2020 or 2021 will have issues. He sees no issues with BIR or TVE on this topic. The new Federal relief program for large companies may be difficult for companies to accept as it has provisions for up to 15% of ownership being made available in warrants to the government.

Gas vs oil? As there is less oil production, associated natural gas production is falling. He owns BIR and was buying yesterday. AAV has performed well relative to other gas producers. He took profits on AAV recently and moved it into oil producers. BIR is trading at 2 times EV, but cuts its dividend by 81% recently. BIR is more cavalier on its spending, but feels it has more upside.

Debt to cash flow is under 2x last year. Natural gas prices are holding well. It now pays a 17% dividend that their cash flow can sustain. He's been adding to his position. There's a huge disconnect between this stock price and its fundamentals. No reality, just fear. The balance sheet is fine and the stock is very cheap.

If oil recovers. He looks for price momentum, cash flow, balance sheet and low volatility. Oil stocks have none of these. He was net-short energy stocks yesterday. BIR has too much debt vs. their cash flow. He'd look at low-cost Suncor, which has a strong balance sheet, or CNQ (stronger balance sheet despite debt), or Parex which has net cash and a strong balance sheet.

TOU is too high of a natural gas exposure for him. BIR is overspending their cash flow to fill a plant they invested in for the promise of free cash flow next year. If you believe the strip pricing next year, they will generate a 26% free cash flow yield. However, it is also natural gas related. He just thinks there are better buying opportunities from the over selling in the oil markets from the Corona virus.

The company has disappointed the market that there will not be a surplus of free cash flow in 2020. However, he believes in 2021 they will be able to pay down debt aggressively and still have surplus to buy back shares and increase the dividend. By 2024 the free cash flow will be in excess of $760 million and he thinks they will use this to grow shareholder value. Yield 5.88% (Analysts’ price target is $4.23)

Their spending budget exceeds cash flow. He likes the management team. There is the possibility of a reserve write down. It is probably interesting at this level. But he would let it settle out for a while and not get involved.

He is not shy about taking a profit when he makes the easy money. It has a 12% free cash flow yield. He would like to see more inside ownership but it is a good way to get exposure to an increasing commodity price backdrop.

About a 5% monthly dividend. He intends to buy more. The balance sheet is not a problem. They will be a big beneficiary of LNG. The management team has done a good job in the past for shareholders.

How does it change a stock when it leaves the TSX? It is just a market cap thing. It has nothing to do with the value of the company. They benefit from LNG. Tax loss selling will attach this one but be will be a buyer.

It has had a nice bounce and he would be a buyer on any weakness. He has a target of $5 in twelve months. It is over a 4% dividend yield.

There's an abundance of natural gas, but there's a lag in the build-out for further LNG capacity. Globally, there's an overbuild of LNG capacity that takes time to soak up; Euro nat gas prices have plunged. He's not excited by natural gas. Pays almost a 6% yield because the share price has fallen so much. Nothing against BIR, but the nat gas space is troubled.
