Thinks there will be a little bit of a lift in this company. Their Kerl project is coming on board. It has been in the making for a long time. Watch the production come from the Kerl project.

Are going to be doing deep drilling in the arctic once again, which surprises him. Prefers CNQ-T because of lower price to cash flow ratio.

This company does benefit from this time of year as there is a seasonal trend in energy prices from July into September. However, as an integrated name, it does not benefit as much from exploration/production and is not the best way to play the seasonal trend. There are only a couple of more weeks for the energy trade for the seasonal trend. If you own, sell on any strength over the next couple of weeks and look at playing this more in the winter months January to May.

Second-quarter might be a little softer because of the downstream refining exposure. He has been waiting for the barrels at their Kearl project to really come on stream. It has been slower than expected.

This one is not aggressive although it did do well a year ago. It will go up if oil continues up. Fine company to hold.

Integrated oils move higher from Jan-Feb and then end of July until Oct. Right now it is forming a nice little base pattern ready for July. The price of crude oil broke above a triangle to the upside today. IMO is starting to look very interesting. Look for a move as we get into the summer.

Feels it is relatively expensive in terms of some of the other integrateds such as Suncor (SU-T). Yield is not that significant.

As a treasure trove of energy technology, there is none that can surpass this. Of the 4 major oil sands players, this is the most expensive. Until there is a resolution of the Keystone situation, he would stay away from any of the oil sands stocks. Even if the Keystone does not go through, real capacity is expected to be doubled over the next 2-3 years.

Hold or sell? Sold earlier this year. No plans to get back in. Recommends that you hold if you own. She instead bought a company with a cheaper multiple and higher yield.( Argent Energy Trust-TSX AET-UN)

Long Tag Oil (TAO-T) and Short Imperial Oil (IMO-T). A Pairs trade. Put this against the Short to offset any fluctuations in crude oil prices. Also, he is not too optimistic about Western Canada, Kearl and the Syncrude projects.

A 100 year plus track record of paying dividends. Has the backing of Exxon as a 70% investor so have unlimited pockets when it comes to financing. They are ready to pull the trigger on the Kearls oil Sands project and it should be in production shortly.

Basically peaked out in 2008 in conjunction with the oil price and has been flat ever since. Have very good assets. Building the Kearl oil sands project and will be coming on stream soon. It’s always trading at a premium, partly because they are 75% owned by Exxon (XOM-N). Also, the dividend yield is not attractive enough for him. If you own, it will do you well in the longer-term.

Just started to perform with price of commodity. High quality earnings, fully integrated and getting full benefits of downstream earnings, which have been growing quite nicely. Nice hedge against geopolitical issues that international companies have. Viewed as a very stable company.

Recently beat earnings. Their output actually went down but they made money because of their refining business. He would favour the integrateds right now in the oil industry. Technically, if it breaks down through its support, it would be a good buy at $40.

He has this as a neutral with a $50 target. Sees further production and cash flow growth but there are a lot more cost overruns coming. He would rather have a much higher yield.

A core position for him. Stock has ability to go to sleep on you but there is internal growth. This is a great stock for him to have in the core of his portfolio. Has not fallen enough for him to get excited enough to buy more. He trimmed back when it got too high.
