Any danger of the Chinese deal not going through? There is always some risk when talking about foreign buyers. He doesn’t like facing this kind of a deal risk. There are plenty of opportunities without trying to play the arbitrage, etc.

Is one of the most troubled companies in the business right now. It makes sense to upgrade the company right now. The company had an takeover rumour, which doesn't make sense because the stock is going lower. This indicates that the public doesn't believe in the rumour. Doesn't recommend buying based on the rumour.

Debt to cash flow is around 6X, which is high. Cut the dividend to zero, which led to a freefall in the stock. If you were an uber bull on oil, this is the type of name that could go up several fold. Personally it is not his strategy because he thinks he can make 50% or more buying more established names. Higher risk than what he would be comfortable with. In his estimation, they are unable to grow oil at anything remotely close to today’s oil prices. High debt, declining production, declining product pricing which is a tricky situation to be in.

She would call this a Sell right now. This is not the right environment now for a company like this. Unfortunately they implemented a dividend when they had too much debt and when commodity prices were in a correction. Dividend was unsustainable so they had to get rid of it.

They were caught offside with debt levels at 5 times debt to cash flow. The dividend is cut to zero. Debt and production growth are still concerns. They are challenged, as are most companies. Oil needs to get to $70 (local price) in order for them to growth production and resume the dividend. He believes they will sell assets to reduce debt. It’s not a terminal situation, but he does not buy companies with stressed balance sheets.

(A Top Pick April 14/14. Down 85.15%.) A lot of dividend type stocks got beat up pretty badly because of debt loads. This company has $600 million of debt. Have done well with hedging and production. Probably doing 32,000 BOE’s a day this year. Believes they can handle their debt. Great cash flow and should do $.80-$1 this year in cash flow. Will generate about $200 million in cash flow, and are only going to spend $100 million, use $100 million to pay down debt and they have asset sales to pay down debt. Stock could go to $3.50 if they resolve the balance sheet issue. Wait for 3 months before buying.

Cut their dividends to zero and trading at a deep discount. Highly leveraged. They were in the process of trying to improve their efficiencies, but unfortunately got caught up in the oil correction. Not a preferred name for him. He would focus on companies with good balance sheets, who cannot only focus on their existing asset base, but take advantage of possible asset acquisitions.

Extremely high dividend yield of 14%-15%. The company has to do something if the model is not sustainable at these prices. Balance sheets get destroyed and may be having to sell things to pay down debt. If they stopped paying the dividend, he would probably look at this company. They are trapped in this game of having a free lunch in the energy business. His guess is that they are going to sell assets to try to stay sustainable.

Took a position about 6 months ago. Showed up really strong on his models as having a good valuation and momentum. Energy stocks in Canada are under pressure and have no momentum to them. Doesn't expect there will be a quick change to this. There is a possibility this could have difficulty in sustaining its dividend, especially if energy prices continued to be under pressure.

Although he doesn't own this, his company has contemplated making flow-through investments in it in the last year. A relatively simple story to understand. They’re Peace River, Arch, Montney, Redwater and Viking. They pay a dividend. The yield on the company is fairly high, which is probably reflective of some scepticism that they can maintain a dividend. All the body language he has seen from the company is that they would rather throttle back on CapX then do anything to their dividend. He thinks the dividend is relatively safe, although he can think of safer yielding plays.

Had previously recommended this, but was basing it on $96 oil with a very reasonable debt (?) to cash flow at 1.5, and this was a very cheap stock. Now with present oil prices, you're going to have a payout ratio of about 143%, which is average, but still higher. Debt to cash flow isn't too bad of about 2.4 versus 3 for the group. For somebody who doesn't mind taking on a little bit of risk, it is probably fine here.

People have to understand that a 12% yield on an oil/gas stock is not necessarily a big fat yield. If it were a much more stable company, that would be a no-brainer. In oil/gas, you should never go above 8% on the smaller companies. A slight change in their commodity can really make a big difference in the cash flow, and therefore their dividend. Watch the payout ratio and watch the debt. If you are comfortable with those 2 things and oil prices, then you are probably okay.

Has recently added to his position and likes the dividend model. Feels dividend is sustainable. At these levels, you are getting paid 7% per year. The company is not trying to hit the ball out of the park with massive growth, but just trying to grow at 3%-5% a year. Expects high single digit, low double-digit total returns from the story. Doesn’t see the stock getting through $5.75 any time soon, but if you can Buy below $5.40, it is probably not a bad entry point.

Bought assets off Crew Energy last week, but it was not accretive in his mind. It just added to the inventory. 7.1% yield is a bit rich. Let it run a bit more, but there are better names for new capital.

(Top Pick May 21/13, Up 31.81%) They made another acquisition last week. They went into a dividend model, but they aren’t paying out that much of their cash flow. 50% Nat Gas. Raised their dividend to 7.44% late last year and he thinks the dividend could be increased again in 2015.

Transitioned into a dividend growth model. There is a long history with this name. About 55% oil, a good balance. Of the ones that have transitioned, they are more oily names because that is an easier model for transition. It always comes down to the model. Not sure all assets are de-risked enough. He is prepared to give management the opportunity to prove it out. Prefers some others (e.g. SGY, TOG).

Have been having good success through the drill bit, which is not been recognized by the market. Trading at 4X cash flow with a fairly dependable yield. As they demonstrate the capital efficiencies and the viability of their dividend, he is hoping people will get more comfortable with this. Good name.
