He does not currently own this. They have a billion dollar joint venture to explore the Duvernay and a similar venture with Statoil and also in thermal development. This may be creating some angst with investors. He is watching this to see how this develops, but is not ready to step in yet.

ATH-T is a prior top pick that he sold about a month ago to buy CPG-T (who has been buying back shares on free cash-flow). He has concerns over ATH-T liquidity in the market and he held heavy oil exposure in other bigger names. ATH-T has done well to deleverage their balance sheet.

If you believe in $60 oil or higher, this offers the highest leverage of any name. If you believe in $55 or lower, you do not want to own this. This company is very sensitive to oil price and oil differential. Negative cash flow at $55 oil and positive cash flow at $60 oil. If Line 3 does come on next year, and oil by rail ramps up, and if get positive resolution to Keystone or trans mountain, this could be a double or triple.

He thinks WCS will stabilize at $17 discount to WTI for the next few years. If you see Line 3 being completed this year and rail filling the gap, this company offers a tremendous leverage to tightening WCS. Their debt levels have been cut sharply. At $55 WTI, this company generates massive cash flow. At $80 WTI and $20 WCS discount, his target is $4.13 for the stock price. At $70 it is $2.67 per share. You can see the leverage.

When MEG-T is gone, ATH-T will be the highest levered company to tightening heavy differentials. They trade on 11 times cash flow and that can fall to 4.5 times with a tighter heavy differential. He sees heavy differentials at $20. He sees a target of $2.67 in share price. He is the second largest shareholder in this company. (Analysts’ price target is $2.16)

He likes the long term prospects. He thinks he is the largest shareholder of this company. It is a small cap name, but should be able to monetize some midstream assets very soon which will reduce debt. He thinks this could be a multi bagger. It is one of his higher beta names.

With MEG potentially taken out, this may the only significant opportunity to maximize the torque of heavy of oil differentials tightening. He expects the valuation to rise by 50%-100% on oil prices between $70-$80 per barrel.

This holds the type of exposure to oil he likes best as he is very bullish on oil prices going forward. With the Canadian energy sector at the point that everyone hates it, now is the time to buy. They are going to monetize their midstream assets that are high in demand, which will allow them to pay down almost all their debt. If you run an $80 WTI price, he sees this trading in the mid-$4 range.

He hopes they will be able to monetize their midstream assets in the near future for $300 million, which would almost eliminate their debt. This is a good play for tightening heavy oil differentials and higher WTI – which he sees over $80 next year. Yield 0%. (Analysts’ price target is $2.44)

A heavy oil producer that has a lot of leverage on the balance sheet. It trades a relative cheap multiple, but he does not like the exposure to heavy oil. It is a speculative name in his mind that lacks the growth parameters they look for.

They are the number two in Canada. Should be able to monetize some assets and should be debt free. The name is trading at just over 2 times EBITA. At $70 oil, he sees a 102% upside. At $80 oil, he sees an upside of 172%. (Analysts’ price target is $2.41)

Pay attention to producers, and how they’re going to respond to the price of oil. Look at the big producers, the Suncors of the world. They’re going to lead the commodities. Athabasca was up $0.01, when oil was down. Expect Athabasca to get its legs underneath it and start to push ahead. The resistance level is important. Looks pretty good, but prefers Parex, Kelt, and Enerplus.
