The dividend is certainly safe. You are better to be in the next tier down. They are the targets for acquisition. Things are on sale in the oil patch. There is nothing wrong with the big integrateds, but he prefers the next level down.

Big announcement this week--US is imposing sanctions on Iran which will reduce oil supply. This was always going to happen. Oil prices will rise to $70. Meanwhile, all the European oil majors will make money and do more development. RDS has a fine dividend that's safe.

Class A or B? A shares are more liquid, and tax considerations aren't much different. You can buy either, whatever is cheaper. They trade closely together. They are a big player on LNG. If you want to diversify away from Canadian oil, look here.

Buys for new clients. 6% dividend. Profitable at $50 oil. Generates so much cash flow, deleveraging balance sheet, buying back stock, and making investments.

They completed their $30 billion divestment program that allowed them to pay down debt. They are moving towards LNG. They haven't been rising dividend lately. Caution on this. The yield is attractive but if not growing is a red flag.

Not expensive and a good dividend. But like many oil companies, they've had to restructure after the oil price collapse. They made a huge purchase of British Gas and took on a lot of debt. That said, RDS can maintain its dividend. They can get good cash flow out of some of their assets in Brazil and Australia. Some of their offshore assets are working out and they can grow--but there are a lot of bumps in the road ahead.

Pays a 6.7% yield. It's international and integrated, not in Alberta where the oil is trapped without pipelines. They're bullish in LNG. They're buying back stock. There may be a small dividend increase this year. Balance sheet is much better. This is a play on oil prices that he expects will rise. They've paid down debt to their lowest level. (Analysts’ price target is $78.75)

A long-term hold? A good company though he prefers a peer. He'd buy this at current levels.

Dividend over 5%, covered by free cash flow, they make money at $50 oil. Investing in renewables. Well run company over the last 100 years, a low cost producer. Would fit into any portfolio. Less sensitive to oil prices because of other businesses.

It’s had a selloff. He’d be a buyer now, the sector’s starting to simmer down a bit. It’s cheap here, back to 2010-11 levels.

Trying to build a base around $60-61. There's safety in some energy names. OPEC oil cuts could be a tailwind into the low-$80's.

Bought it around the 50 dollar range. The issue with the European oil is that they reduced their capex strengthening their balance sheets. Moving forward they will have strong cash flows.

If you want to play Canadian oil short-term, look at a company with Brent oil exposure, not Canadian where companies suffer oil discounts on the market. That said, look at Vermillion or Royal Dutch Shell.

He prefers BP which has better upside. RDS though has a nice cash flow and did a great job repositioned the company on the downstream side. Has one of the lowest-cost asset bases. Pays over a 5% dividend. The LNG project in BC announced today will impact RDS who are one of the investors/partners, but there's a real risk of huge cost overruns.

He’s not a huge commodities fan, but he does own Royal Dutch Shell, which is a global expert in putting together large projects like LNG Canada. It is a long-term player. The fact that a skilled, major global player is driving LNG Canada is one of the important causes for optimism for the project. Has a history of being one of the least indebted oil and gas companies. They have also avoided the types of accidents that have plagued other oil companies. Yield 5.4%.
