They are a little step away from energy being a utility rather than a producer. Feels LNG is going to be one place where there is going to be some success. Suspects this stock has pretty much hit bottom here. A good, long term prospect. Good operators. 6% dividend yield, and doesn’t think there is any chance it is going to be cut.

If you are inclined to step into energy, this is a very good choice. Have a lot of assets, including some that are offshore. Well-managed company. You have to decide that you are going to make a bet on a recovery of the energy sector and that there is not another leg down. If you are looking out 5 years, this is probably not a bad way to participate.

He is quite concerned about small-cap companies, because they are the ones whose balance sheets are most affected. The company was going great guns, but has been backing and filling since 2014. If you are in this, don’t overweight it. Would prefer some of the intermediates like Crescent Point (CPG-T).

Despite a lot of negativity, this continues to survive. The security aspects are underrated, and more attention should be paid to that. Chart shows it has been flat lining for a number of years, and maybe that is going to be its future. Thinks it will survive, and maybe grow again. Wouldn’t buy at this time as it is a risky proposition.

Sun Life (SLF-T) or Manulife (MFC-T)? Prefers this one. Has a very competitive wealth management operation. Manulife has done very well in the last little while, tidying up their financials and getting themselves out from under the equity problem they had. Likes the fundamentals of the insurance companies, as he is reasonably bullish on equity markets.

Coal shipments have not been great, as well as having the world turning against coal. This has come down substantially because of that. Not a particularly attractive long-term investment. He holds a little and is looking forward to selling it on any kind of a rally.
