Expects this will stay fairly flattish, maybe up 5% to 10%. Their problem is growth. A fair amount of their production is in Western Canada, which is in decline. Well managed. Not a cheap stock. Would prefer Talisman (TLM-T) or Canadian Natural Resources (CNQ-T).

Have not seen much growth in production volumes. He prefers exploration/production companies. For a larger, conservative name, you are getting a bit of a dividend. Well-run company. Could eventually be taken over by its parent Exxon (XOM-N).

Trading right at support level, which is always a positive sign. Has the potential to go back up to the $50 level. On the downside, use a tight stop of $42. Would suggest buying call options, which will limit your downside. This one will have actively trading call options.

The stock broke out about 6/8 weeks ago and has recently pulled back to the breakout point. Feels it has good technical support in here. Exxon (XOM-N) is raising cash and could be making a move on Syncrude of which Imperial oil is a part of.

Large integrated oil company. Owned by Exxon in the US. There is always the chance that the parent will take out the company. If you like the long-term opportunity for oil sands, this is a safer way to play.

Prefers Petro Canada (PCA-T) because of their international exposure. With marketing/refining margins as strong as they are, and being the largest in Canada, they're benefiting from this.

Still have some of the best metrics and great properties. Trading at about 15.5 X earnings which is average. Facing limited growth potential because it is predominantly in the western sedimentary basin.

Feels we are coming close to the bottom of where the new range for energy is going to be. Would use a trading range and buy near the 52-week low and sell when it gets near its high. This is a strategy he would use on oil stocks.

Canada's largest integrated. A lot of its production comes out of the Cold Lake area. Has a number of interesting assets, 25% of Syncrude, the dominating player in the McKenzie Delta area and will be the primary driver behind the McKenzie Valley pipeline. The stock has become expensive.
