Which Oil & Gas share to invest in ?




Hi ,

Can CD s share their thoughts as to which Oil & Gas shares to invest in , in the current market .

I was reading about Suncor news this morning and given the current gloomy oil prices , wondering if it would be a good investment to invest in some oil & gas shares for a long term investment say 10 years or so ..

If you can buy a Barrel of Crude (OPEC) for $45 US on the open market, why would any oil company charge us $75 Canadian here within Canada? Is it just to prop up our economy? or to fleece us, the ignorant ones? or they too smart to squeeze us all for a buck a liter when you can get the same gas across the border for 52 cents US a liter.

Now do tell me, will you buy any of these worthless piece of paper for any price? I am not saying that there is no demand for their products, but it is an inflated price and it is propped up and bound to collapse, if the world market moves just a notch down in its price to say $39US/barrel. That is the Doom and Gloom Scenery. It will be worth noting, it if it ever happens.

That is where I am with these OIL Stocks. They all are top heavy. As we say equity rich and cash poor. Look for consumables or P&G etc., may move a touch and also give you a dividend too.

FH.

The O&G market is cyclical like any other commodity and what is perceived as low value today can and may become a value added stock later. There are people who made millions investing in oil stocks during the 2009 oil crash and equal or more lost their life savings during the same period and now as well. There were millions of theories in 2009 when the oil hit $30 range and a different set of conclusions in 2013 when the oil was $110. So the question is will the oil go back to the $90s?.

There are several major Canadian oil companies like Suncor, Husky, Imperial, CNRL, Cenovus, etc and hundreds of smaller oil producing companies. The way oil is extracted in Canadian oil sands is very different and very expensive compared to middle east and they all need oil to be at least $60 to break even and above to make a profit. Companies like Suncor, Husky, Imperial have their own gas stations and generating revenues as the gas stations did not really reduce the price in spite of reduced oil prices. Hence the pipe lines play a major role to reduce the cost of transportation. Now keystone and energy east pipelines in trouble, this will have a significant impact on Canadian oil market but the logic is Canada can provide the stability of oil supply to US as compared to middle east.

If you believe in oil going back to $80 range say in 2 years and can hold on to the volatile situation without panicking, then there chances you can get some good returns on your investment. The same thing was told about Gold stocks when the gold was near $2000 range and now the gold stocks have crashed as well.

The key is to diversify and not to put everything in one basket and take a risk only if you can afford to loose in the worst case without breaking your bank balance. I know it is a long winded response that did not really answer your question.

YOU CAN DO IT....

I am in touch with a few who do this for a living. They hold a ton of these and play with it in the market. They are active, alive and doing WELL. They don't wink, blink or nod. That is the kind of market this industry is.

If it was buy and hold stock and make an exit at the right time, I would surely point and whistle. But it is not one currently. The volatility is so much, it is only good for those who are extremely alert and not for one who is busy working for some one.

Just in the passing, if you can invest $20,000 US and leave your job or take a break just to get to know what it is that you have to do to get to know this industry, then prepare yourself for that first and then take a short break and experience it. Some times it is nail biting. If you can hack it, it will be very rewarding and if you set up a high water mark and when you reach it, just bail out and retire from being active, will be the best decision that you ever made. It is addictive though, and if you get hooked on it, then you are the king. Mmmm May be a king of the jungle. There won't be anybody there to cheer you up.

Think about it. Then walk into it boldly, you will see the other bird watchers in....

Take care.

FH.

Go through this and take your own time.

EDIT : Just to be safe... Read it if you can find it here...

I have read this wicked book once and I did learn a lot from it. In fact I threw in a dollar first and then started to chase the little 'O's or the zeros. I have picked four of them thus far. Still chasing the zeros.

This is the first time I saw the free PDF and I said to myself, why not post it to the CD's and of course you too Monica. Hope you also get to enjoy it, since it is free for all.

It is from here and I just posted one such link out of the search engine.

Thanks for the asking.

Full House.

If you see a guy wearing a night glo outfit with a neon skeleton jacket, that is me. I will tell you what I got in your neighborhood in my next.

You also have a good one and a nice week end.

FH.
