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.

Moved up starting last year when they got approval for the Mackenzie pipeline. Probably looking for a little bit of a pull back. He would like it at the $38-$40 range.

Would wait for a pull back. It has had a good run and is now consolidating. If you are very bullish on energy and think it is going higher from here, this looks great.

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).

(A Top Pick Dec 11/09. Down 3%.) Has been a little weak. Investors worried about capital expenditures with the building out of Kearl. This will give them a lot of growth but a year and a half or so away.

Was considered one of the best managed oil companies in Canada but lately has been languishing because of oil sands and the lack of growth projects compared to its peers.

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.

Whole oil sector has been trading sideways. If you have a longer-term horizon, this is a good one to own. Have one of the best oil sands holdings. Majority owned by Exxon (XOM-N).

Like the other integrated oils globally, hasn't been a great performer in the last several years. Very dependent on heavy oil and the spread between heavy and light sweet oil has widened. Also don't have any great exploration going on. (See Top Picks.)

If your timeframe is 3 or 4 years, then this is a hold. If your timeframe is less than a year, you shouldn't hold it. Eventually they are going to commission Kearl, their oil sands project and this will be a catalyst for it to move up.

One of the most profitable companies. It’s been incredibly expensive but got cheaper with this little correction we had but did not rally back. Just hold it and let it compound for the rest of you life.

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.
