If you want to wade back into the oil patch this is probably the one with the strongest balance sheet. The advantage is the long life of the oil sands as they don’t need to explore for new oil. Most of the barrels in their reserves will be sold at higher prices. They also have downstream integration. It is a relatively safe play in the oil patch.

(A Top Pick Jan 03/19, Up 4%) They have done virtually nothing in the past year. It's indicative of the whole energy sector. It's now trading at its book value, which hasn't happened since 1995 during the oil fears. He suspects oil will go higher, though it might not soar. If it goes up, companies like this that are cheap could do better than what anybody expects. Risks are very minimal since it's bottomed out already.

Oil is up $3 with a possible war in the middle east. The stock is at a terrific value. Good upside potential. If everything works out well, it could have a huge upside in a recovery. (Analysts’ price target is $36.53)

He likes the dividend. You have to go back to 1992 before you find it trading so cheap to book value. It has 15-20% upside over the next year. In uncertain times, good companies like this bring comfort. Yield 2.41% (Analysts’ price target is $38.90)

Stock hasn't done anything in the last while. It moves with the price of oil. Doesn't have the beta of others, so doesn't provide the juice for capital gains. And other companies have a better dividend. Only 20% debt. Book value is $31.48. Not a big fan of the integrated companies.

A black cloud hovering over Canadian oil sector and until this clears up, he would avoid. Yield is low on this name. He would look at a company that pays a higher dividend and has more capital appreciation potential.

What's the importance of target price increases? Targets are not important to him in the oil sector, because oil is in a cloud. Oil needs to see more takeovers. IMO is well-run and solid, but the oil space is in a trouble time.

The outlook and performance of the integrateds have done better than the oil producers. IMO yesterday postponed their Aspen Project for a year. IMO is fully valued now and he prefers CNQ or Suncor.

Produce oil upstream and refine it. Stock under pressure since 2014, as most oil companies. Financially strong. Insulated from weak or declining oil prices, as they're integrated. Not enamoured with their asset base or their management, as they are with Suncor. Want to be careful with your exposure to the oil patch. Pipeline shortage and WTI discount are issues. Integrated companies like this are better than pure-play.

He doesn't own any oil now and is not bullish. Instead, renewable energy and e-cars will take a lot out of oil down the road. Pays a dividend of nearly 2%.

One of these stocks that if somebody owns it makes you wonder if they bought it in the first place to hold it or to trade. He likes to stress game plans.

A large amount of US exports are products. The refiners have crack spreads that are currently very favorable, which is why you’re seeing merger mania. Imperial Oil, Husky and others in this space are talking about significant profit growth in their Refining and Marketing business. Their net income this quarter was $516 million up from $333 the year before. If you look at the long-term chart, this stock hasn’t made money for investors. The dividend yield is not great. Compare it to Suncor. This hasn’t been an exciting place to be.
