This is one he has been looking at and one he would like to own. It has the 2nd lowest breakeven point for oil in Canada. At current prices, its payout ratio is around 80%, which is pretty good. A very, very well-managed company. Dividend yield of 2.9%. This is one you can seriously look at.

(A Top Pick Feb 10/17. Down 10.99%.) Loves the management team. Saskatchewan/Alberta with light oil. This is a dividend paying model where they can grow production 7%-10% a year. Pays about a 3% dividend, but all from the confines of cash flow. They are not taking on more debt to build the company. As the price of oil goes up, they’ll either do more acquisitions or they’ll raise the dividend again. Dividend yield of around 3%.

A very well-run company. His quarrel is that they have been paying out a dividend, and have to issue equity, diluting existing shareholders to grow the business. Hopefully, as energy prices gradually improve, which he believes they will, this will provide you with good returns. Right now, people are worried that they might buy Raging River (RRX-T). There are probably easier trades. (See Top Picks.)

It is a reasonable valuation and has reasonable book value. The problem is price momentum. The trend is lower.

An excellent quality company. They can keep increasing dividends as oil prices stabilize. They have a lot of free cash flow. We have seen some pretty significant increases in production, all internally funded. It has done nothing so it has lots of upside.

There is nothing wrong with it, but there is a buyer strike. Investors are standing back. He has US names that will grow more and at a cheaper valuation. It is difficult to make a case for owning the Canadian names.

When a sector gets crushed the overwhelming sentiment is to go back and look for the money that you feel it owes you. A lot of people jumped right back into the energy stocks in Jan-Feb. The history is, unless you get significant restructuring, it is likely there is going to be some indigestion after 12-14 months. That looks like what we are getting. He would prefer something like Algonquin Power (AQN-T) which is acting pretty well and is in a defensive group.

This has recently caught his attention. 2-3 years ago, this was considered to be one of the dividend stocks to hold. Because of the price of energy, it has come down since the beginning of the year. Very well-managed. This is showing up on his valuation screens as looking reasonable.

Among the oil/gas dividend players, he considers this to be the best in the group. He doesn’t buy oil/gas dividend stocks, because they are too volatile for the yield. This company will continue to grow its production by 5%-10%.

(A Top Pick Sept 12/16. Up 1.92%.) A very good company. What has been hurting Canadian producers is the reaction to what is going on in the US with the border adjustment tax Trump has been talking about.

Great management. It has very light oil properties in Alberta and Saskatchewan. The team has focused on properties that have a low decline rate of about 20%, and don’t have to drill is much as companies that have a 40% decline rate. Bought a large Saskatchewan land play off of Husky Oil last year. Dividend yield of 2.61%. (Analysts’ price target is $14.92.)

Whitecap Resources (WCP-T) or Crescent Point (CPG-T)? Two different types of companies. This is more of a growth company paying a dividend, while Crescent Point is much more mature. It pays a fairly good dividend. This caught his attention lately and he has begun to look at. Very good balance sheet. They have capacity to bring on another $1.3 billion in debt. People are forecasting this is going to grow from 46,000 barrels a day, to something like 57,000. If you want more potential growth, this is probably not a bad way to go. Pays a very generous dividend.

The market is being fairly efficient at pricing a lot of these companies as they are very similar valuations. He likes this one very much. He doesn’t own it, only because it has held up better than its peers, and is trading at a slight premium. There is upside where he thinks they will increase their CapX spending as long as oil remains in the $50-$55 level. On his estimates, they will be growing production this year by 17%, and by about 10% next year. Slightly better than average growth for a slightly higher multiple. He would have no issues owning this.

Exploration and production light oil production. They plan to increase from 45k to 55k barrels per day production by the end of this year. He likes that the balance sheet has room on it and they carry less debt than peers. They stand to benefit from a rising commodity. (Analysts’ Target; $14.80).
