Top Canadian Stocks For 2014

[ July 17, 2013 | Author: admin | Weather: | Mood: normal]

According to the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers, or CAPP, Canadian oil production will more than double over the next two decades, fueled by steadily growing oil sands production and a rebound in conventional production.

But could the rise of alternative energy sources such as solar render expensive oil sands projects unprofitable within the next several years? Let’s take a closer look.

CAPP’s projections
CAPP forecasts total production to reach 6.7 million barrels per day in 2030, compared to roughly 3.2 million barrels per day last year. It expects oil sands output to account for a little over three-quarters of the expected 6.7 million barrels per day in 2030, or around 5.2 million barrels per day.

Conventional crude and condensate from western Canada will make up the remaining 1.4 million barrels per day, while eastern Canadian production is expected to account for the remaining 100,000 barrels per day, CAPP reckons.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Mel Daris]

    First up is Kinross Gold (KGC), a miner and processor of gold, silver, and copper ores. The Toronto-based company produces gold from mines on four continents and has proven reserves of 63 million ounces of gold, 85 million ounces of silver, and 1.4 billion pounds of copper. The stock trades for $9 per share and pays a dividend which yields 1.80%. It also posted a net loss in 2011 of $2 billion before adjustments, therefore it does not have a valid price-to-earnings ratio. For curiosity’s sake, Kinross’s P/E is -4.87. Its statement of cash flows, which includes adjustments to income and net borrowing shows the company holds $300 million more cash than it did at the end of 2010. From a business standpoint, the company looks like it is making the right choices long-term. The company has doubled its net tangible assets to over $8 billion in just two years in an effort to capitalize on the rising price of gold during the recent financial crisis. Solid long-term busine ss decisions, however, can burn investors in the short run.

    Canadian-based Kinross Gold is one of the world’s top five gold producers. With operations that span four continents, the company produced 2.61 million ounces of gold last year, a 12% increase over the company’s output in 2010.

    The boost in production helped fuel Kinross’ cash flow amid rising gold prices – firing revenue up 31% to nearly $4 billion last year.

    For 2012, Kinross says that it expects to produce approximately 2.6 to 2.8 million gold equivalent ounces from its current operations.

    Rising production costs have, however, cut into Kinross’ revenue over the past several quarters. Full-year production costs in 2011 averaged $596 per gold equivalent ounce, versus $506 per gold equivalent ounce for full-year 2010.

    Kinross says production costs are expected to rise again in 2012 in the range of $670 to $715 per gold equivalent ounce. So the rise in production costs may offset rising revenue from increased pr oduction if the market sees weaker gold prices.

    Kinross’ gold stock currently pays a semi-annually dividend. The company recently declared a dividend of US$0.08 per common share, payable on March 31, 2012 to shareholders of record at the close of business on March 23, 2012.
