Top 10 Canadian Stocks To Buy For 2018

Baytex Energy (BTE) is a company that is highly leveraged to oil prices. With its large differentials for its Canadian oil production, its margins can change significantly with a more modest change in oil prices. For the time being though, the weaker Canadian dollar has offset much of effect of oil prices falling compared to a month ago.

Baytex is priced appropriately for the current oil strip, so upside versus its current share price depends on whether long-term oil prices go up from around $52. Although I believe that growing US production will make it difficult for oil prices to increase a huge amount from current levels, taking the over on $52 oil seems a reasonable proposition.

2017 At $50 Oil

If NYMEX oil averages $50 during 2017, it appears that Baytex would end up with approximately $733 million in revenue, including $8 million in positive hedge value. This compares with my previous estimate of $782 million in revenue at $55 oil.

Top 10 Canadian Stocks To Buy For 2018: Transcananda Pipelines Ltd.(TRP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    After a series of setbacks in its attempts to build new oil pipelines, Canadian pipeline giant TransCanada (NYSE:TRP) completed a transformation transaction to acquire U.S. natural gas pipeline company Columbia Pipeline Group for $13 billion, which includes the assumption of debt. The key to that deal was that it increased the combined company’s near-term project pipeline to 23 billion Canadian dollars, which supports TransCanada’s ability to increase its dividend by 8% to 10% annually through 2020. After completing that deal, TransCanada made a bid to acquire all of the outstanding units that it did not own of affiliated MLP Columbia Pipeline Partners (NYSE:CPPL) in a transaction valued at $915 million. These acquisitions solidified TransCanada’s natural gas pipeline growth ambitions, enabling it to diversify away from oil pipelines.

  • [By Paul Ausick]

    That includes pipeline companies like Kinder Morgan Inc. (NYSE: KMI), which already operates a pipeline transporting natural gas from Texas into Mexico, and master limited partnerships (MLPs) Energy Transfer Partners L.P. (NYSE: ETP) and TransCanada Corp. (NYSE: TRP), the company that has (so far) failed to get U.S. approval for its Keystone Pipeline expansion from Canada’s oil sands across the U.S. border.

    TransCanada Corp. (NYSE: TRP) just achieved a perfect Money Morning stock VQScore, making it a profit powder keg waiting to ignite…

    TransCanada is a Canadian oil and gas pipeline company, most famous for its development of the Keystone XL pipeline connecting Canadian oil fields to major hubs in the United States.

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    In a number of articles recently, following the US recent revival and potential approval of the previously blocked Keystone XL pipeline, a number of estimates have been provided suggesting a pending boom for the US steel industry is on the horizon (and US steel stocks have reacted in kind). In fact, this optimism, we believe, peaked today when a report from one of our competitors was published claiming that, the keystone XL pipeline could increase line pipe demand by 14.7% for 2 years. The problem here, we believe, rests with the facts that: (a) TransCanada (TRP) has already taken, and paid for, the steel to build the Keystone XL pipeline (the steel currently sits in storage facilities in both Regina, Canada and Arkansas, United States), (b) neither US Steel (X; SELL), AK Steel, Steel Dynamics, or Nucor have the ability to make the specialized steel required for the miles of pipe associated with this project, to include both the thickness and pressure requirements, according to this article from Reuters, and (c) assuming some of the pipe does need replacement, this would likely come from international steel makers who are capable of producing the specialized steel (again, as highlighted in this Reuters article).

    Energy infrastructure companies ONEOK (NYSE:OKE) and TransCanada (NYSE:TRP) are both emerging from the energy market downturn as stronger entities. Each made smart acquisitions, with TransCanada buying U.S. gas pipeline company Columbia Pipeline Group, while ONEOK is in the process of gobbling up its MLP,ONEOK Partners (NYSE:OKS). While these deals enhanced the growth profiles of both companies, TransCanada still stands out as the better buy for long-term income investors. Here’s why.

    Energy stocks were driven by a hefty dose of M&A during the third quarter. And that will drive returns for TransCanada Corporation (TRP) during the next one.

Top 10 Canadian Stocks To Buy For 2018: Silver Wheaton Corp(SLW)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Rich Duprey]

    Silver Wheaton (NYSE:SLW), of course, is a streamer like Sandstorm and Franco, but it is the largest in the precious-metals industry, and arguably the best-known, because its business model came to define what streaming is. Although it is known primarily for its silver contracts, Silver Wheaton also has sizable gold production that makes it worth your attention.

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Finally, shares of Winnebago Industries dropped 6%. The maker of recreational vehicles has been under pressure ever since rival Thor Industries (NYSE:THO) reported its most recent quarterly results earlier this week, and Thor’s story led shareholders to sell off that stock. Yet although Winnebago is in the same business as Thor, some investors think that it could succeed where Thor failed, especially because the Winnebago brand name is much more valuable and has greater customer recognition that many of its competitors’ offerings. Winnebago will have its own chance to report its financial results later this month, and although many investors seem to be betting against the RV maker, others believe that Winnebago could easily make its competitive advantage against Thor and other manufacturers clear with a solid performance this quarter.

  • [By WWW.MONEYSHOW.COM]

    Thor Industries (THO) expects 2017 to be one of the strongest years for the RV industry since the 1970s.

    The prospect of higher gasoline prices seems unlikely to derail the RV rebound, given that growth is being driven by smaller and more fuel-efficient motorized RVs and towable trailers.

  • [By WWW.MONEYSHOW.COM]

    One of the world’s largest makers of recreational vehicles, Thor Industries (THO) is in the right place at the right time.

Top 10 Canadian Stocks To Buy For 2018: Plains All American Pipeline L.P.(PAA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Dustin Parrett]

    We think Plains All American Pipeline L.P. (NYSE: PAA) is one of the best oil stocks to buy this year. In fact, we see a scenario where PAA stock could jump 20% in 2017.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    One of the largest projects is the Saddlehorn Pipeline, which Magellan is building with Plains All American Pipeline (NYSE:PAA) and Anadarko Petroleum (NYSE:APC). Both Plains All American Pipeline and Magellan own 40% of the project, which puts their total investment at $230 million apiece. They expect the project to be fully operational early next year, which is noteworthy given its robust first-year economics. Magellan estimates that it will earn eight times EBITDA on the capital deployed, or roughly $28.8 million in annual EBITDA apiece for Magellan and Plains All American Pipeline on their investment.

  • [By Dustin Parrett]

    Plains All American Pipeline (NYSE: PAA) controls 4 million barrels of crude oil and natural gas a day.

    And with higher oil prices and fewer restrictions leading to more drilling, PAA’s pipelines will be in demand in 2017.

    Spun off from energy producer ConocoPhillips (COP) a few years back, PSX has quickly become one of the downstream industrys biggest players. Refiners earn profits based on the difference between feed stock costs (Think oil and natural gas prices) and the price for refined products such as gasoline, jet fuel and heating oil. Those inputs remain low, and Phillips 66 is minting cash as a result.
