Intermediate oil companies like this one have been awful. There’s been a migration out of these stocks by the big investors. Price of oil has gone up, but these stocks have not. Won’t see increases until the industry consolidates. Reasonable dividend. Hold it if you own it, but otherwise stay away. (Analysts’ price target is $12.81.)

Different from typical TSX-listed stock, as many assets are in Europe so the risk element is significantly less. If you own it, hold on to it. Not a bad buy on a dip, in the under $40 range. A target of $50 is a possibility. (Analysts’ price target is $55.82.)

Avoid this sector. Competitive, paper-thin margins. Other sectors pay better dividends and have less volatility. Not enough of a dividend to justify holding through the sideways motion.

Likes it for the international exposure. Excellent longer-term strategy of making acquisitions in Central and South America. Good way to diversify into banking outside of Canada. Yield is better than other banks. Not a bad time to buy. A buy and hold, clip your coupon stock. Yield is 4.5%. (Analysts’ price target is $85.27.)

Has developed more of a liking for the broader market, rather than the low volatility US stocks they used to hold.

Not as happy with China content, so picked an ETF with higher Korean content. EM sector is going to do well. Concern about tariffs is overdone. Maybe 5% of your portfolio, not 70-80%.
