They all have had a nice run. The oil sands bad odour has been dissipated. The bad aspects were over done by parties in the States. The question is: would we like to buy our oil from people that run around killing each other or to use our own. His choice is CNQ, although he doesn’t own it.

Imperial Oil (IMO-T) versus Suncor (SU-T)? He prefers Suncor (SU-T), which has a better growth profile. Imperial has some additional oil sands coming up in the next few years but they are not there yet.

Has moved with oil price but in last month or so it exceeded the performance of the others. Petro Canada merger is finally under its belt. It doesn’t intrigue him. The properties that other hold have more growth potential.

If you are worried about oil price, you are a little safer with this one. There is a modest growth profile. It is a quality name and he would be interested in it. They have some projects coming on that could potentially turn the company back into growth mode.

Under performer over the past year. One of the lowest beta stocks in the energy universe. Well run and low debt. Expensive and doesn’t see any catalyst for the next year. Expecting Kearl to be higher but doesn’t know by how much.

Very little growth here. Decent dividend. Given the ownership out of the US and lack of growth he would move into other oil stocks such as Suncor (SU-T), Talisman (TLM-T), CNQ (CNQ-T) or Petrobank (PBG-T).

Has been a disappointment given the rally in oil. Pays on low dividend. Hasn't recovered from the recession. If you are a blue chip, buy-and-hold it's okay to own. If you can take more risk, there are better names out there.

One should not buy oil and gas on the speculation that they might be taken out. It should have happened when these things were crushed on price. IMO always sells at a premium because of assets they own. Very well run company, but it is expensive.
