At this point, you just try to blow this out and forget it. They have stumbled over the years with a litany of operational mistakes. When the commodity price collapsed, debt got them.

This is going to be a bankruptcy, so if you own he would Sell immediately. It is not going to come back. They’ve been trying to negotiate with their lenders.

Probably a good tax loss candidate, but at $.07 maybe you just hang onto it. The downside is 100% and your upside is limited. He would suggest that bankruptcy is not far off. Not a name he would hold.

When a company falls like this one, his experience has been that you just tear the Band-Aid off. You have to ask yourself what is the energy environment today and what are the companies that are doing well. This is pure heavy oil in Western Canada. Depending on the new normal commodity price, heavy oil might just come out too low.

He knew this company when it transitioned into a dividend paying entity, back when that was in vogue to get a higher re-rate in terms of the valuation multiple. This is a higher cost heavy oil producer. In this downturn, it has exasperated a lot of problems in terms of the sustainability of the dividend, and put an enormous amount of balance sheet stress on the company. Their credit facility is around $275 million, and got cut back to around $225 million. There is apparently a non-revolving component of that of about $85 million that comes due at the end of April. They have about 6 weeks to figure out how they are going to pay back about $60-$70 million. They have to sell the company or sell assets.

Sold his holdings in the last 6-12 months because he was worried about the sustainability. Likes management and some of the assets, but it is just a very small boat in a big see of issues with oil prices.

A medium-heavy gravity producer. Got into trouble last year with some high declines at their heavy oil property, and have shifted more of their emphasis to the medium gravity side of things. There are other names that he would recommend.

She no longer owns it. She would be cautious of it. Issues with their assets being too thinly, too rationalized. Investors have shied away from too much. Doesn't support their dividend long term.

It is heavy oil. They don’t have a terrible balance sheet. There may be a dividend cut. He prefers others.

If you look at the numbers, it looks like the dividend is sustainable because the payout ratio is less than 100%. This is one that has been proven, but it still needs to rationalize that asset base a little bit. She would like to see that happen before she took a closer look at it. In the years to come, they are going to have to prove that they have a real turnaround possibility to get investors interested again. Not a story to be in in this environment. Dividend yield of 16% should be cut.

He could not think of why he would own it. They have missed numbers more than they have hit them.

Did a great job of adding some lighter oil into their product mix. However, as time went on, the market lost confidence in execution. The sustainability of the dividend yield of over 15% is a concern, which he thinks is valid. There are less risky positions to take.

At current energy prices, this company is not all that economic. However, they have about half of this year’s production hedged out at $85 oil. It is not going to go to zero any time soon, but at the end of the day they are going to need energy prices to rebound by next year. Yield of 14.8%, which tells you something.

(Market Call Minute.) A heavy oil play and they are not making much money at this level. Small-cap and they have some debt. You can play this one through convertible debentures.

Spends about $20 million a year on interest payments. Have $248 million in debt. BV is $1.12 and this is trading at a significant discount to that. Have some good hedges, so they should be okay through the 1st half of the year. One hedge is 3500 barrels a day at $99.76 on a fixed contract. They did $54 million in cash flow in the 4th quarter. The question is, what is cash flow going forward after these beautiful hedges run out? The 2nd half of the year is the more problematic.
