Typically when you come to the end of these panics stimulus takes place. Oil comes off from very low levels and recovers nicely. This one has ROE levels of 43%.

Fantastic capital allocators and have a clean balance sheet. Although dividend yield is low, they buy back 5% of the stock each year, which supports the share price. The option value on this is bitumen accrual and the frontier gas Mackenzie Delta.

Looks like it is holding in at around $38. He would recommend a stop of around $35-$36. Stock is trying to get above the 50-day moving average of $46. Relative strength indicates it is neither overbought nor oversold. Any uptick in demand should do well for this sector.

They are renown for their balance sheets management, consistently increasing its dividend and returning capital to shareholders through share repurchases. 1% yield. Buying it for capital appreciation. If the Mackenzie pipeline goes ahead, they have the largest gas reserves in the Mackenzie Delta, which is not on their reserve report yet.

Has performed extremely well in this market but looks very expensive. P/E is significantly higher than some of its peers. Would rather go with one of the other integrateds. (See Top Picks.)

There are some stocks that are now making bases and this one has been base building since Sept. early Oct. Gone above its 50-day moving average. Could rally to around $50. Use a stoploss of around $30.

The first 3 quarters are pretty good. Not one of his favourites because they have a low reinvestment program. Buy back stocks instead of reinvesting in the oils.

Came down with the rest of the oils. Imperial usually hold up well when others go down, but didn’t this time. There are better places to be in the oil stocks.

Into a very controversial environmental issue. Had 2 setbacks this week. Delay in the Mackenzie Valley pipeline and this will be a lot longer to ever get done. Also denied a permit from the fisheries Department for water, which will delay their Kearl project. Not a favourite.

Chart shows a nice upward channel. If it were to break into a new high, that would put it into the $58/$59 range which would be a good increase. Long-term chart shows a long-term upward trend. Thinks this will continue.

This company has limitations on what it can do. It is entirely focused on Canada. With energy prices, you would have thought would have done better over the last year or so. Prefers something more international.

If he is right about the natural gas prices recovering and the material breach of $100 in oil, they will punch through their July/Aug highs, north of $55.
